Whatever people say, nothing came close to Note 3, only Note 2 is closer to this but still it lacks the screen clarity and brightness that note 3 has.
I was comparing it by starting from s4 mini to htc one max. Htc one mini(huge difference), HTC ONE(NO spen = big deal, cam, no sd card slot, heavy etc), Z ultra(huge size), HTC ONE MAX(HUGE), S4(HANGING,Heating, octa 5410 vs 5420, No Spen, No 60fps cam, storage, ram, battery backup etc etc - and even huge difference for s4 mini), blackberry z10(don't know, never used blackberry :) )
So, maybe I missed apple :D, isn't it?
And even I have n900, but it is really fast enough, never lagging on big games, never heating, for light usage I even entered in 4th day and battery is still 14% remaining.
4k is missing but no worries. ALSO sometimes(not every time) cam produces blurrish photos but video recording at 60fps is crystal clear and no comparison That's my small review after 2 months.
nicku, 18 Nov 2013Which version you are using n9000 or n9005?i have note 3 N9000 3g
I'm using this monster phone almost for a month and i do really love it!
still, there are several things confusing to me
1. the series number... I have SM-N900 , not N9000 nor N9005 nor N9002
I think it's depend on the country the device is being sold at. (I'm in Indonesia). But it's not a big deal.
2. I wanna turn the "My Magazine" offfffff..... it's reaaaally annoying T_T but i don't want to root my note yet.. sigh...
well.... this really is a monster afterall.. went to office fully charged, and come home at night with still around 30 - 40 % battery left after a full day heavy use
great device for traveler too :D

Ever heard of a rechargeable emergency lamp with radio? It's very useful during a catastrophe rather than a smartphone.
i want to buy note 3 which is the better n9000 or n9005 please give me information
I have sony z1 and note3 both .
Note 3 if far good from z1 . .

Guys please, i need you help.
i don't know which one to get the 3G or the LTE version, does thr LTE deserve the price difference. ??
note: the 4K video is not necessary to me, also i don't have LTE network in my country, so it's just the processor which really matter to me.

I upgraded my Note 2 to Note 3 and whereas I could synchronize the Note 2 phone contacts with my PC phone contacts using Samsung Kies software this is not possible with Note 3 even after downloading Kies 3 which is compatible with it. Is there something I am missing or is the Note 3 not designed to synchronize with PCs? PLEASE HELP
Amazing is that since these phones S4 model not bring radio tuner. The radio stations still operating and they will be running for long. Not all radio stations found on the internet. In the event of a catastrophe can collapse the cellular communications and radio stations are the most direct means of communication with people. Do not despise Samsung lords, that functionality is required. My next phone will be a Sony or any other brand if available radio tuner and that respects the users to pay a high price for these teams.
i bought note 3 on Friday night, here is my review
Reception: Good but not very good for network signals, Wifi reception is very good
Build Quality: the bazzel should have been aluminium or steel, the leather back cover looks elegant, gives a premium feel
Every day Usage: very useful in daily tasks, i download and watch movies at it, games, very good music. internet speed very fast
Camera: 9.5 out of 10
Battery: first you will feel its not long lasting but hold your horses, first drain it to 15% and charge it full, after 5 or 6 charges you will feel big difference in battery timing, lasts whole day with me with heavy usage
Display: True HD AMOLED has no comparison, its a joy to watch HD movies at it
Text input: No questions at it large display shows large keys so its very easy to type fast
Call Quality: Crystal Clear
So if any of you has second thoughts about it forget em, this is a masterpiece to have, Go for it
