Both competitions were open internationally. Thanks to unlimited data, and long battery life of a Note has, I can take breaks during my independent work. I'm not a Samsung loyalist. I still use my Apple iPod, my Sony smartwatch, an Alienware laptop and my Microsoft tablet.
Digital painting can be done on a Galaxy Note. The World of technology has now allowed portable standalone digitizer devices that last hours to do on-location drawings. I didn't say that is all people should be doing. The Galaxy Note 3 is a fantastic powerful media consumer device with a snappy screen and processing response. A Z1 has no digitizer.
I still keep my watercolours and sketchbooks handy for sketching. As an architect, I happen to use the Note for creative idea generating, communicating my ideas quickly, share those drawings immediately. I can generate 8000 by 12000 pixels exports with Sketchbook Ink. I only do Revit and AutoCAD with my laptop at the architectural documentation stage. I know when to use what types of drawings at different stages of designing. I'm not a slave of any particular medium.
I'd love to get the Z1 as a secondary smartphone for those wet situations.

Is painting what all people want to have their smartphone for it?no.even best paints are not comparable with the ones on paper.And a designer would never use a galaxy note because it does Not have accuracy of a mouse(+considering the screen size) or feeling of real pencil.So it's more like a entertaining feature than having real application in life,just like other galaxy features.
You Say Z1 can not survive during diving or under sea water for long.You think People want to capture "The Survival Secret" with a waterproof phone?anyway it's useful in many situations not just an entertaining thing.
wang, 22 Dec 2013Samsung galaxy note 3 is the king among all... Go for the snapdragon version.i am on n900 just fine, superb phone
i can't find note 3 Dual SIM. they wrote in its page that there is note 3 dual Sim.
Emet you need to flash your rom with an official update from Samsung for your region. this worked for me the last time i had a similar problem with my Galaxy S3, use Odin.

After you've done that, you should be able to use your local sim. This may not be 100% spot on, so hopefully someone who knows for sure will chime in.
Pls help me! I cant use my note 3 because of region lock. I got it from saudi and phone shud be use here in Philippines. I i inserted local sim but it says it is invalid sim

Steve J, 22 Dec 2013Neighbour, your post about using Z1 to take pictures in the bathroom was hilarious! However it... moreDon't get me wrong, I would like at least a water resistant Note 3 with the same size, and changeable battery. Some abusive Z1 who actual hosed water or dived with it complained about water sipping through. Noobs.
But I'd NEVER compromise with only the features of what a mere Xperia Z1. Sony's design and software philosophy can't satisfy a dual productive and consumer media device. Anything without a Wacom digitizer isn't worth having since I do my most productive thinking with a pen, sketching and jotting down notes.
I've done some digital art since the Note 1. 2 pieces I did on the Note 2 won me 2 different competitions.
I'm also into sketching on-the-spot of whatever I observer - architecture, people, things. You can never easily draw better details with a finger or wide rubber tipped capacitive pen. The active Wacom digitizer S Pen has been enhanced further with better response and features. The isn't any other smartphone that offers this feature. Nothing. I even use a Galaxy Note as my input tablet for making digital at work with my gaming laptop. The Z Ultra's pencil mono line input was a joke compared to the Note's S Pen.
I could not miss an FM radio tuner and I don't use it even with my Bluetooth stereo has it.
It's difficult to find a device to substitute with the Note's features. It's still unequaled.
The less informed person who keeps making up bad things to say about the Note 3 only needs a basic device.
TheNeighbor, 22 Dec 2013Give it a rest with your Z1. It's free on a lower plan than the Note 3 in my region. Can't do ... moreNeighbour, your post about using Z1 to take pictures in the bathroom was hilarious! However it does highlight the confusion between waterproof and water resistant. They should have tried to make the Z1 waterproof not just resistant. Now that would have been interesting.
I myself will wait for SGNIV since III has no radio. I'm not going to flog the point but I'm deeply disappointed. Samsung should look before they leap into ridiculous decisions like omitting one of the greatest communicating devices of all time.
NeoX, 22 Dec 20131st of all..do you have the z1?do you have the note3?..have you ever made an honest comparison... moreAll of your comments are OK except Camera where you are absolutely wrong. Note 3 camera is second to only Lumia 1020.
[deleted post]1st of all..do you have the z1?do you have the note3?..have you ever made an honest comparison between those two?..or rather, have you ever experience handling those two phones?..don't include that you just play with them a bit at the store..that's not actual experiencing!..i've played a lot with both phones..i've already compared them several times..both have their own pros n cons..the z1 surely is not superior, neither the note3..
here some of my thought:
both phone is NOT shockproof! fall down and it will eventually break..but since the z1 has both side glasses, it has more potential to break..
yes, the z1 does feel more premium when holding because of the glass at the back and the aluminium frame..a fingerprint magnet too~..the note3 has plastic back that has a looks and feels of a leather(almost~)..
i can say that triluminous has better saturation to true life colour, but it does consume the battery faster..the note3 is oversaturated clearly..
yes, the z1 can survive any splash or rain or even a quick dip into the water..but please understand the different between water-resist and waterproof..the z1 is NOT waterproof!
to be honest, the note3 have quiet a lot of bloatware..to some it may be annoying, but others would love all the extra features..
both has almost the same body size..but i found that the z1 is easier to use with one hand, since the screen is much smaller than note3..
i don't think the spen can damaged the display..i own the note1(waiting for nexus 5 upgrade)..the display is pretty much ok to me..unless you use a sandpaper to rub it on the display~~LOL
the z1 is clearly a winner here..but if you are a person who snap pictures only to use on instagram or facebook, note3 is more than enough..because when compressed and resized, the quality is pretty much the same..but if you are a person who like bigger size photos with lots of details, the z1 it is..
the note3 wins this round because you can easily swap the battery with a new one..you can have as many extra battery as you want..it eliminates the need for a powerbank..a great feature if you travel a lot, camping, or doing most of your work outside, in the field..
you want an honest review? This is an HONEST REVIEW..STOP COMPARING unless you have experienced them urself..from the very beginning, your opinion is always heavy on one side..
