got mine from a second hand dealer and it works perfectly. The only problem i had was with the battery that gave out after one year since i started using it. After that i bought a bigger battery and know i don't have any more problem with searching for somewhere to charge my phone. I get almost a full day (that's with using the browser, facebook, chating and even the gps). I should say that i don't play on it to often :)
I feel it's a good smartphone and I'm reading these comments because I want to get a used one. Pls any advice
I bought my first Note 3 from an overseas dealer in my neighborhood on eBay in 2013. Love the studying out of it until about two years later it over heated and wouldn't charge. I simply bought a new one from the same person, swapped in my Sim card and memory card and was happily on my way. Then about a year and a half ago I noticed it getting real slow, so I bought a new battery and a bigger memory card and it's now working fine. This is my favorite phone and I am sad to start seeing apps that won't work with it. I am curious to what other android supporting phones out there can *really* compare.
It's been 4 years since I bought it. Still so great and serving me well. Cheers to more years ahead ;)
Best Note ever made. The Note 4 has the emmc fail bug. Look it up. Note 3 had everything you could ask from a phone for its time except FM radio. Samsung is celebrating its Note history by not mentioning the Note7. Beautiful but I will say the Note 3 was their best one overall. Too bad I sold mine. It was working great last year after nearly being a 4-years-old model.
Love my note 3 5yrs old but now the ear piece does not work requiring me to use speakerphone or blue tooth so unfortunately it's time to move on to a new model but it's served me well.

Bloatware was bad, got so annoying that I had to root with towelroot and get superuser. There are very few good protective cases for it. Thin ones do not protect it properly (I broke 3 thin cases) and the strong ones (otterbox and the like) make it feel like a real brick, even though they provide amazing protection. Consequently, NFC will not work for you if you have a thick or metal case, it will also not work for you if you have induction charge case or insert installed.
Otherwise this this is a solid reliable phone. Adjusting for age i'd still recommend, 8/10.

Initially I thought the problem is with my original battery but it still work.

ive had my note 3 for at least 5yrs...love it..my only problem is something running on it and drains battery immediately..problem just started..what am i doing wrong? any help?
I remember I got it at November 2013 for about 800$ still working fine and loving It. Had battery problems last year so I just flashed it with note 7 ROM and got a new battery. The note 7 battery management also made a difference. Still l0vin it, especially while changing every single detail with AryaMod :-D
Wanted to buy a new phone that has an AMOLED display and a better or equal sunlight reliability with the new hardware and better battery. Don't really care about screen resolution 1080p is more than enough. But sadly the closest phone is the mi8 which heats up. So for now I will just wait for the note 9 ROM to appear and continue on with this master piece

Sam, 29 Jul 2018What about your battery back up? mine is giving worst.Sorry for late reply. Battery can last a day. But i have extra batteries to pop in when battery is low. It depends on how often im on phone. If on 24/7 battery will drain.

Note 3 although release 5 years ago is still a very high end phone compare to phone release now. Bought battery replacement , going to use another 3 years then determine whether to switch phones.
