I am in Pakistan and here we also got note 3 the SM900. It's my 4th day with it and it's running just great. The battery charging time I think depends on the charger amps and the voltage I think it should not be related with processor. Other than that the Exynos processor in this version is awesome it has the big.LITTLE processing theory and it's great. All the benchmarks u will see between SM9005 and SM900 are not justified because the SM900 does not allow these 3rd party benchmark testers to utilize the whole octa core so see the great exynos that even on one core of quad at 1.9ghz the results are very much closer to Snapdragon and some are even higher. Note 3 with Exynos is better because both are made by Samsung. It's a very nice set. Using the pen window option I opened all available apps on the main screen and then I opened everything in the menu and even then the note 3 SM900 was working fine and smooth. One more thing the best set is that which is launched in your region by the maker and which u can buy in warranty.
hey i have a question !!!
i know that the note 3 with exynos 5 octa does not record 2160p @ 30fps
but does it record 1080p @30fps or @60fps ???
Sanat, 18 Oct 2013If I buy Samsung note 3 SM-N9005 from Dubai, will it run in India or I need to unlock? Plz rep... moreIt will be region locked. The phone has to be firstly used with a local SIM (Dubai SIM in this case). And only then will an Indian SIM will work on the phone.
Also, the model being sold in India is N9000. The N9005 is LTE capable, but I don't know the LTE bands being used in Dubai, so can't say whether that will work in India.

Hi guys.. pls share ur note 3 experiences. Am frm india n am using the exynos octa version. Every thing is so smooth till now. Bt I have a question? ? My note 3 is taking 2hr:20 minutes frm 0% to 100% during CHARGING.I have heard several reviews tht the snapdragon version takes around 1hr:50 minutes to charge the battery completely. . Is it true guys?? If yes.. thn might be Samsung will update it via OTA to charge it more quickly fr the Octa version. .
I never really used the multi window option on the Note 2. I'm loving it on the Note 3 but. It has been improved a lot with more apps. Great for listening to YouTube videos while cruising the Web.

Kami, 18 Oct 2013Be advised that you can NOT use your Note3 in another area of the world than where you bought ... moreOld gist, why are you bringing back this topic again? It has been discussed here over and over.
Why can't I get 4g LTE on AT&T network using Samsung Note 3 9005 model?

Be advised that you can NOT use your Note3 in another area of the world than where you bought it. I.e. a Note3 you bought in Europe can not be used with a local SIM card in Asia because it is Region Locked.
