ausnote2, 05 Oct 2013 Have received mine yesterday and waiting for my PDAIR case to arrive before taking it on the... moreI think the surface pro 2 is the first device on the market that can replace a notebook. However it is highly unlikely a Note 3 or 4 or 5 or whatever will ever be able to replace a notebook. I still see these units as more as a choice than a need. Whilst I have a note 2, and enjoy the camera convenience, it is not a startling device. I have also used the Note 3 and will not get it as there is no material advantage in spending the extra monies. The good thing about Samsung is that you can easily skip a model, like if you have an SIII why bother to buy a SIV, if you have a Note 2, why bother to buy a Note 3. In fact if you have a SII, you should keep it and not bother to upgrade just yet until prices come down and there is really useful, efficient and productive software.
I work for a phone network shop and none of our notes benchmark anywhere near the results here. interestingly it underperforms in epic citadel probably because it's labelled as a game in the app store and so doesnt feature on the phones list of benchmark apps to overclock the performance on (like with the S4).
i dont know whether the gsmarena knows it or deliberately omit the fact about video preview functionality on the note3. it already exist on alcatel devices such as the scribe hd which is nice btw. give credit where credit due.
AnonD-193314, 05 Oct 2013Does anybody know how to get the list of other sound alive option I hate the new one No idea where gsm find that sounds options list in the picture.. I've looked everywhere in my settings.
Please do compare Exynos and Snapdragon Version of Note 3 in various parameters like benchmark, gaming , RAM utilization, battery life and real life performance. A quick review would be greatly appreciated thanks !!
[deleted post]I'm sorry. It is cheap? You know that the note 3 costs more than the iPhone 5S, right? Effing ignorant.

This is The King, so just stand up and be quiet.
Thank you for the best reviews on the web.
I only buy a phone after you test it. I bought mega 6.3, and now note 3 .
having said that, I would much appreciate if you take note :
battery test :
Browser test should be on 3G ONLY , for wifi I use my tablet , the point of browsing on a phone is being MOBILE . Yeah, conditions change and what not, just do it in the same place, is still more usefull, than USELESS wifi time.
there should be a gamming time performance test. It would prove battery endurance with cpu /gpu at full tilt , And reveal other issues like heating and so on. You could use a benchmark loop etc.
you should use a fixed nits mark , like 200 , NOT 50% screen has 50% in on phone its others phone 100% and that is not fair for the brighter screen phone .
you should do it out side. I understand the reasons, achieve homogeneous conditions etc , but its so distinct from real live , at least you should give feedback from direct sunlight operation
my 2 cents
-Huge Phone (prefer to say Phablet)
And, it may lag because it is Samsung. Just like it happened to my SIII.
I wouldn't buy it, but if you like those features,sizes,and designs, this is your new 'phablet'.
AnonD-192689, 05 Oct 2013what am i suppose to do?? buy the note3 or the G2? please compare this two phones....cons & prosprocessor wise both almost equally good...Even both the phones support a 13MP camera...Note 3 has a broader screen with 5.7 inches where as G2 has a 5.2 inch screen..Note 3 has a inbuilt 3 GB RAM where as G2 only has 2 GB. Also G2 doesnt support an external memory card slot and only comes with either 16 GB memory or 32 GB however Note 3 supports external memory card slot with extension upto 64 GB allowed. when it comes to price the Note 3 is cost around 20% more than the LG G2.check it out.. http://www.prodsea.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Note-3/mobiles-price-1003-1605
other than that both of them run android jelly bean and support a wide range of apps...if you are a like broader screen and can afford higher Note 3 is good else G2 is equally good....
AnonD-192689, 05 Oct 2013what am i suppose to do?? buy the note3 or the G2? please compare this two phones....cons & prosThis is a region locked device and it remains locked after the so called "activation with regional sim", so the choice is easy enough i think, locked phones are not worth anything.
what am i suppose to do?? buy the note3 or the G2? please compare this two phones....cons & pros
