The specs are great and so must be the quality since this is a premium Nokia phone...
...the design on the other hand...
...it's just terrible!!
Where are your premium designs Nokia?? This plastic POS is getting old!
Nice hardware but crappie os, jolla is much modern and better nokia should kick ms out of finland
[deleted post]My S4 1st week is cool after that... lag is tremendous!
I switch with Lumia 1520 and never look back (Android) as my day to day driver.
1.Battery life is whooping 34hours in 4G.
2.Camera is superb.
3.People/Me HUB is awesome.
4.Offline Map is superb.
5.Nokia Music FREE.
The only thing I miss from Android,,,,
[deleted post]extra core in 1520 are for a reason.
one core is dedicated to background processing. one to extra software. and other 2 runs the os.
so can you justify the reason of 4 core in note3 with any other reason than faster gaming and smooth system?
wp run smooth in 2 core and the extra 2 core are there just to provide extra feature just like new released nokia health care system

My brother has this phone. None of your problems exist in my brother's.
Nice try, troll.

Here are the reasons why I ... moreI would have thought not having Google apps is a good thing considering the Google spyware issue. It is good to have wp comes so far - if it have a file manager and BBM, I would consider it. Not sure what you mean about Google apps really. So what.
Aadrian, 22 Dec 2013The lack of official google apps is because of google. The one to blame is google, who has no ... moreThe one to blame is not google, its you guys. World moves with the best things, and if you guys arent its part its your mistake. Despite of windows os being in market for many years(dont tell wp os is an year old, its an updated version of windows mobile), its still nothing. Google knows where it can earn money. Developing anything fr ms, will nt be good.And you are comparing ios to wp? Nice joke :-P
[deleted post]Oh dont bother, they are living in history of nokiA. For them, nokia is everything!

That's only true for certain droids and kinda exaggerated depending on how you mean it. As well as it being many useful optional things that you might not get otherwise.
Eddie Quist, 22 Dec 2013A. I'd agree about the multitasking. It isn't true multitasking. Still, even with no applicat... moreCouldn't agree more except for the over played, over exaggerated fan boy crap about Droids in the lower range not being usable.
We even have a froyo running good. cortex a5 chip running jb. And as you said something running nothing and something running multi things, customizations, and enhancements works differently.
Ali Wd, 21 Dec 2013This is an Excellent review but in Main disadvantages
"Screen has average sunlight legib... moreNot best display. One of. That would be the Note 3's screen. And how well the screen looks does not tell the whole story. Like sunlight visibility for instance. And average above average now a days is actually still good.
And just having a long lasting battery does not mean making it non removable is ok. And that also has to do with more than just how long it lasts. If you need to take it out, if you couldn't charge it, if you need a spare, if you need a replacement, if you don't want to send it away.

Ok I have 1020 am disappointed in battery life went and bought Sony Xperia Z1 great battery and like app selection but bored with android so went and bought this on the 17th at my local Harvey Norman store. Within the last couple of days I gave received Subway Surfers, Xbox video, Xbox music and Temple Run 2. Battery life impressive, screen great, camera only bested by Nokia Lumia 1020, video recording awesome couldn't have been any happier with this device. Is a little large but when I go back to Lumia 1020 well In want the big screen again even my Sony Xperia Z1 seems lacking. If anyone is thinking about buying this phone I say go for it yes may be a little big for some but it is great phone.
It's for pre-order in my country and not officially available yet, but some webshops already sell this phablet. But I think I will stick with my 1020 because for me phablets are too big.

Should of exchanged it for a working phone. WP8 is super smooth. This phone should be faster than any Android. 7 days is not enough to learn an OS.
