Some people say Spen is good;
Here are the trouble of being spen*
(1)Taking out spen
(2)Writing on glass plane(phone screen) with spen is rather unpleasant
(3)In writing, you can't use two hands like on keyboard
(4) For 15_minute passage you have to spend up to one hour due to difficulties on glass plane writing
(5) you have your own 10 spen (10 fingers) and they are mire manageable
(6)*using spen more often make tons of lags on your note3 screen&performances
(7) it make battery life shorten***

Have a closer look at my pure aluminum. I chose that over black to avoid seeing scratches on it in the long run.
There is one that aren't screwed in. Avoid the two piece types where you will slide in the front part. It will leave scratches.
5.7" is enuf screen size. Just trim the bezel more for Note 4! Perfect!
what is better the camera on note 3 or s4? i want some one ho has try the 2 phones to answer me pleasseee
Is there any possibilities in future that Note 3 N9000 3G version(Exynos) to support 4G LTE network by any software update from Samsung.

You really do need to zoom in to read better. Word or PDFs can't have adjustable text.
However, you can adjust the text style and size of ebooks on the PlayBooks app. Highly optimized.

I would like to know PDF and word reading experience on this screen size..

Don't think I should be getting a case that disrupts signal as I live in an area with signal issues to begin with.. I am looking for a bumper that would cover the sides of the phone completely.. If you could link me to something that would cover that, highly appreciated. Saw the siege cover, they good but I am in desperate search for one that doesn't add bulk and would protect and cover the sides..

I'm vaguely interested in the Galaxy S series. Not even the Galaxy S5 with its water resistance and nice power optimization. At least those will be in the next Note.
Galaxy Notes give so much more features with a built-in Wacom digitizer, than without to boast how much power and RAM it has.
[deleted post]Hi Bunnyip, good to see you here. I think neighbor is supporting Note 3. Am I perceiving something wrong?
MRooney, 05 Mar 2014I highly agree with TheNeighbor.

Some were done on-location while they aren't asked to pose. You can't get those dynamic thin to thick lines spontaneously with just a finger or capacitive pen. The S Pen has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The more pressure, the thicker the lines.
Of course also writing and sketching with S Note.
Why in the world should visual artists like me would switch to something without a Wacom digitizer (S Pen)? The Note series just gives us a wonderful device for sketching anywhere, anytime.
TheNeighbor, 04 Mar 2014Some misconceptions you made regarding the Note 3:

No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users"
And as I always say and I use. Neighbor knew that from Note 2 forum...that....Removable battery is plus factor.
I always go with that and that's my deal breaker!
TheNeighbor, 05 Mar 2014Yes, avoid my points that I had previously mentioned. The Z2 can never replicate the S Pen wit... moreI highly agree with TheNeighbor.
Z2 cannot beat Note 3 at this moment although there is difference of 6 months between 2 flagships.
S-Pen is definitely a leading factor, someone admit it or not. I have seen my companies Higher Management they love you use Stylus while checking their e-mails. Yes they do.
And S-Pen features they are wow.
If 2 people are fair and sitting together, let them give Z2 and Note 3 respectively and they will tell the real innovation in them.
Note 3 is a real discovering Handset!

I bought mine in Dubai and haven't received any updates yet. I'm not so sure if when will it be but I'm looking forward on getting the KitKat update pretty soon. BTW, I've been using my SMN3 to 3 diff countries already inc where I'm currently at and it's perfectly working. I was told by the dealer that it can be use anywhere so I didn't do the "region lock" thingy. But might as well try it out just to make sure:)

Do you know what is .1mm thickness difference? 5g lighter makes a whole difference for you? Omnibalance has more to do with the exterior "a minimalistic form where only the essentials remain, with balance and symmetry throughout."
See that video again:
Xperia phones are made in China.
The only weakness for batteries here is the inefficient management Sony has implemented with the Xperia Z lineup. Their mid-ranged Xperia C has a more impressive battery performance with a removable battery. I'd get that over the Xperia Z2.
