I am using Note 3 and Lumia 925. Lumia is very close to IOS performance wise. No stutters no lags no freezing. Despite of heavy specs on Note 3 it still lags, and stutters. S Pen is useful but not in all situations. And android? You all know. Google just cooks everything whether it is good in taste or not dies not matter. Ios and windows 8 have less features but add value and comfort to everyday use.

I just wonder what are the reasons someone will buy an expensive smart phone just to play real racing 3. Save yourself some bucks but a Nintendo handheld game.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2014All phones hang. When you say all phones hang, it goes to show the that you've never used a lumia device. Bro, lumia does hang. The OS is solid and stable period.

Nokia has the best and simplest operation, however it is like a wolf in sheeps clothing. Pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside, beautifull face without a soul. The fez' nothing inside
Akash, 12 May 2014nokia lumia 1520 is the best because of its colours ,size,camera and sound capture techlogy.Colors is preference.
Many people like the look and feel of the Note.
It's display is top notch.
The much lesser camera of the Note 3 actually has overall more advantage.
And yes the while audio is great on both Nokia has the upper hand in mics.

The probably really comes down to APPS. and the Windows app store offers hardly anything worthwhile. Go and do a search. It is hard to find quality games - look up Real Racing 3 - a great game - its not there. Real Racing 2 is...for $4.99! Really??? Youtube...nope, not there either. How about Madden or NBA games. Nope. Instagram? Nope. Until windows comes out with much better apps it doesnt matter how great the phone operates. And I want the Nokia - i really do, but I cant justify buying it to have a good camera. I need a good phone!

An S801 compared to that would even be more fair. Or at least another S800. Like the Note 3 since you are talking phablet. I would spend time with the Note 3 before making that decision......But that's just my logic.
I recently got myself an 1520 to go along with my S4, upgraded it to WP8.1 Prv, and I think it is probably the best phone/phablet I've owned. Very good battery life, rock solid stability with good performance in almost all areas, which unfortunately not the forte of Android (mainly due to customizations I guess). I am now seriously considering ditching my second phone i.e. S4(i9505) for a Lumia device probably by end of the year.

A couple years ago when Symbian still had some life was different.

For the cam, i have try the 2 phones in a live metal show for recording and the sound is by far better with the 1520 with the option to adjust the audio base filter the is no grichy sound for the kind of show who get a lot of bass, the the effect of light did not affect the quality of the video, recording in 4k for the samsung is cool but right now is useless, i will never upload a 4k video on youtube, maybe in few year it will be interesting but right now i dont think so !!! And of course with the next windows phone 8.1 coming very soon the os will be more complete, with all those option for web browsing and the swipe keyboard for massaging, the notifications center, Cortana...etc and much more... I think the choose of the winner of the phone is base of the use of the customer, for me the 1520 is winning... I have try the Samsung for 2 weeks and i can say its a good phone but it feel a little more cheaper, the pen is useless with this larger of the screen and im not the kind of guy who made drawings on my phone iv got a computer for this and PhotoShop... Its just my taste and my opinion after my own test, i dont want to sold WP, you take what is better for you !! Take care everyone
android has gotten stale. just like apple has been stale for 5+ years, android hasn't changed much in 2 years. ditched my galaxy tab2 for a asus transformer with win8.1 pro and am loving it. im using a note 3 now, which is a great phone, but i'm left wondering is the next flagship windows phone the one I switch to. my only holdback is the RT, give me a phone with win8 pro, and i'd be all over it.
i`d choose Note 3 cuz of android and 4k video, but Lumia photo quality is still better, even video is worse
