Kudos to Gsmarena for doing their job with love and honesty. Love you guys.
I wanted to buy this but REGION LOCK
NO CHANCE mr sami, , I'll stick to my note 2 for now
For those inquiring about which is faster, Snapdragon or Exynos, check XDA. Snapdragon is significantly faster for Anomaly 2 and Epic Citadel game engine benchmarks which are much more realistic than the other useless synthetic ones.
The faux leather back is okay, but fake stitching!? That is tacky. I don't think I've seen that since the 1980s. Hopefully, there are more tasteful back covers. Otherwise, I'm totally in love with it.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2013One question to the guy who made that review - WHY YOU DO NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT THE REGIO... moreIt's not even a real region lock...
You just have to use AS FIRST SIM CARD, a sim card from the region where you bought the phone, and it'll be unlocked...
I cannot stress enough how much I loved this complete and comprehensive review. I've had the Note 2 for almost a year now and it wasn't since a couple months ago it started to feel like an aging device, because of all the sorsepower it packed at launch.
I'm tempted to upgrade, but given the Note 2 is still quite capable, I haven't been able to sell myself that idea. Here I am hoping for the 4.3 update to bring some neat tricks.

One question to the guy who made that review - WHY YOU DO NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT THE REGION LOCK FOR THIS PHONE?
This issue is a big STOP of the sales of this phone! If the review is honest and objective you should warn your readers about this problem!
They should know how Samsung is making their customers fools!
Its semm German peoples ... they are not happy about Regional Lock
Have a good day
Yeah, I'm no Samsung fan either but the Note is simply best in it's class.
Such a shame that in a device that size, they couldn't add an RDS radio and OIS.
TheNeighbor, 04 Oct 2013Don't even bother defending your XZU against the Note III. You must keep thinking XZU is the b... moreWell said! Im no Sammy fan but can spot a good phone/phablet when I see one! I have friends that use notes and have to admit they are awsome for games!
AnonD-19190, 04 Oct 2013Still my xperia zu is much better then thisTo bad the ZU battery can't get through a day.... then when its a glass bread board it is actually too big to comfortably slip in your pocket. GN3 is KING!
