Have it since 2014 and its my fave note. On 5.0 . No problems with it. Usb 3 which is good for sending files to laptop. Ive note edge which i Use it for work. But note 3 i use for personal use. Cant seem to part with my note 3. Think the note series stopped at note 4 and note edge in terms of removable battery and sd card.

blonde, 08 Mar 2017N9005 is 4g lte. Not 3g lte friend. While the 9005 supports LTE band 2(1900 Mhz) and 4(1700/2100Mhz), depending on where you are in the world, you may not actually pick up LTE. This is the case here in the United States, where as far as i know, no carrier uses any of those bands, so we're limited to HSPA+ until someone unlocks the other bands (possible, but unlikely), or until Samsung updates the modem firmware (kind of doubt they ever will), or until some carrier starts using a band that is does support (plausible).
The Galaxy Note 3 is an awesome device. Despite being a four year old phone at this point, my Note 3 has both stood the test of time and clumsiness. At this point, most if not all of the Note 3 variants are easily root-able, and I believe all are boot-loader unlock-able. Mine is carrier unlocked as well, and I'd assume that all of the GSM modules are carrier unlock-able as well.
The Note 3 features a quad core ARM7 processor (some are actually octo-core, incredibly), 3 gigs of RAM, descent internal storage, external SD support, USB 3 support, and of course, my favorite part-- a removable battery! These features make the device future-proof, expandable, and upgradeable.
The stock ROM can be updated to Android Lollipop 5.0, but if you unlock your boot-loader, you can run anything you'd like on it. For instance, currently, I am running a custom ported version of Google's latest OS: Android Nougat 7.1.1/LineageOS 14.1.1 (formerly CyanogenMod), but there are plenty of custom ROMs' available for this device. A few developers have even ported the stock Note 7 ROM to the Note 3, which brings into question the cost effectiveness of upgrading to a newer device.
Other thoughts... Get a *tempered glass* screen protector, and a protective case. You don't need a bulky Otterbox if you like the slimness of the phone, as this phone is pretty durable, a thin case will do the trick, provided you are reasonably careful with it.
Issues: After dropping the phone several hundred times, the camera developed a small issue with the autofocus. Sometime, when launching the camera, I can feel the lens vibrating as the camera struggles to autofocus. This is a minor annoyance and can be remedied by briskly, and momentarily shaking the phone around. After that, the camera seems to focus without issue.
Overall I'd give this phone a 5/5 stars. It totally exceeded my expectations of a device manufactured in 2013.
