Thanks Tcool, Parbinder, TheN... moreCongrats on your new possession, one thing is correct that size of Note 3 is little big, but addiction of bigger size is bigger than the size, lol. I can't return to small screen size even if I want to, badly addicted to the big screen. S5 is good but it raises the expectations for Note 4,so no returning back. Enjoy the S 4,is it Snapdragon or Exynos version. Is black edition available in India, for how much.
I sold Note 3 and bought newly launched galaxy S4 Black Edition. Thanks Tcool, Parbinder, TheNeighbour, Bunnyip and all my friends as I was following your valuable comments since 2012 when I bought Note 2 first time and surely I'll miss all of you.
I sold it bcoz I never felt comfortable with Note series specially outdoors. I know I'll miss big screen and spen. But I found various similarities in Note 3 and S4 except 4k recording. But I feel comfortable with 5" screen of s4.
I know it depends that how we use Note series. But I rarely used spen which is main concern of this device and got this decision.
Thanks to all of you.

But I guess I need to tighten my belt since it will become heavy. LOL!
For people n Pakistan, only Warid is capable of delivering LTE at present, just becuz it had technology plus wave length to support. Go ahead and see fr urself. Even 900 note 3 wud do.

I live in Bangladesh. My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 LTE. In Dhaka, there is 3G. But in the network mode I see 2G/3G (Auto Connect), 3G only, 2G only. LTE is mentioned nowhere. Is Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 LTE is a real LTE variant phone. Confused. Please reply.
I got it last March and it was working Super UNTIL the last Kitkat Update .
1 - it keeps freezing and i cannot almost use my phone as i cannot get out the black screen .
2 - I did the Factory reset , it worked fine for some days then it's becoming even worse !
3 - now i cannot know who is calling , cannot stop the alarm sometimes i cannot use it at all !
Any ideas what to do rather than endless factory reset !

But it is inconvenient because every time I need to check the phone I have to open the bag and dig inside.
Should I dump my tight jeans and buy loose jeans? LOL!

Or Samsung has caught on with funneling people to buy music from their Hub. Haha.
I have no qualms about the Note 3 having an FM radio or not. I'm pretty happy with internet radio.
On a side note, the Note II has recently got a 4.4.2 update that gives it the Air Command and seems all the software features of the Note 3. That has an FM radio, but no LTE for most.

An alternative casual thing you can use is to try out a belt bag. I found the thinnest one, with another compartment for the extra battery:
