Note 3 is an incredible phone.i have been using it for a month now.Very good battery life 1 day with heavy usage and about 2 days with medium low. the screen is beautiful. just one issue is a lag i face on locking and unlocking lock screen besides that its awesome Phablet!!
The size of this device is pretty good with hands on it4 months using my Note 3 and it's pretty ok. Memory almost full of games and apps,internal and external too. Any app with Note 3 is like a breeze.
All doing perfect, fast, helpful while multitasking, easy to do all i need to.
Worth each cent i've paid.
The Note 3 is humongous,other phones feels like toys after using it.. Mind blowing smartphone
AnonD-220574, 13 Feb 2014I was have note 2 now I buy note 3 but I think note 2 sound higer than note 3 . .Even i had the note 2 earlier . The main thing i miss is the camera effects which the note 2 had . The note 3 has camera filters which can be used after clicking the picture. In the note 2 we could use those effects while clicking the photos. Is there something like that in the note 3 as well ??
Do you know how to downgrade Android 4.4.2 to Jelly beam 4.3 for Galaxy note 3 ?
AnonD-121248, 13 Feb 2014Agreed!
Many people appreciate Cellphones with Removable Batteries and they know they Reaso... moreOh yes, I cycle 3 batteries, changing them everyday to offset the eventual degradation of each. This is true for all batteries, even for the built-in types.
Until we have a technology that finally can hold 10 times more capacity for power using silicon base commercially, there's no where around the most practical method of maintaining the power hold ability by swapping batteries from time to time.
Apple was the first to implement the fixed battery concept. Making the device thinner was not the main idea for the first iPhone at 13mm thickness. The reason was that no one would tinker what's inside. Steve Jobs was very protective of that.
Then they did it with their laptops. The fixed battery for a laptop worked since only roughly 5% of people actually got spare batteries. The laptops became thinner without the extra housing for the removable batteries and they could be moved elsewhere in the chassis. This is good for laptops.
So now we have roughly half the thickness of the original 13mm fixed battery smartphone,and that achievement WASN'T done by the iPhone.
But there's are injustices of what a built-in battery system for SMARTPHONES holds.
1. Weaker and tinier battery.
With the more power demanding hardware, and new OS features, you'd think they would increase the batteries. Instead, they have resorted to "it got 20% thinner" and "it's waterproof" but in reality it's just water-resistant of about 1m depth and anything beyond that, water seeps in. Is a shorter usage time what you want with a 2mm thinner device? Switching off features like LTE just to get by the day?
2. Exorbitant prices for replacing built-in.
It would happen long after your warranty expires. Warranty for my region is only 6 months to a year. Battery degradation happens after more than a year. It'd cost you more than twice the amount at the service center. For big OEM batteries like the Note series, it's only around $25.
3. DAYS or even over a week to have them replaced.
Fixed batteries aren't always stocked, and hence the ordering time needed to get them. You can imagine too the millions the manufacturer has sold and you'd be not the only one in waiting. In the meantime, what do you think you'll be using as a smartphone? How much time you'd think going to the center and coming back again to get your device back?
4. Making us carry power banks, power jackets or plug in more, away from home.
I thought the whole point of mobile devices is being wireless. What use is that thinner design form factor when you end up carrying extra stuff thicker than your device itself? Power jackets just can't give you an equivalent 100% charge, heats up everytime and becomes dead weight.
5. Limiting capabilities & features and LTE signals.
Steve Jobs NEVER officially signed off with LTE for the iPhone. Verizon's CEO said so, only after Jobs passed away. We got iPhone5 users complaining about LTE signals not and switching to the 3G signal often. Apple never intended its users to download torrents, unless you do some hack configuring with the settings. They just don't want you draining that tiny 1500mAh battery they put in.
I'll be getting the ZeroLemon 10,000mAh for those long out of town weekends or even as a daily driver for my Note 3, than a new power bank.
Thinking of buying LG G2 or Note 3... which version of the Note 3 has better battery life and doesn't heat up the N9000 or N9005?
Why the led indicator some time light very sharp and some time not sharp and I can't see the ligt very well .. note 3 n 9005

I used it as I know the Engineering behind Recharge Cycle Limitation of Every Battery.
Before and even now, I go with 6 months with 2nd battery and 6 months with original and I am getting pretty good battery backup of 2 days from my Note 2.
Yes TheNeighbour is Galaxy Note User and I second that I have seen him on forums of Galaxy Note. Thanks
I totoally agree with Scuba that Samsung services are poor. In fact, if you do a search you will find a lot od complaints - most, if not all, ignored by Samsung.
May be Samsung is saving funds to pay Apple's claims.

ibu, 12 Feb 2014I'm planning to buy Samsung note 3 my only concern is phone big
Please any one advice meHi there,
Big is a relative term here. Its really depends on your requirements. Yes is is bigger that the iPhone 5s but do remember that the note 3 is a phablet and not just a phone. the device is such a wonder in terms of good screen,resolution, processing power among others. Got mine recently and am liking it big time
