It's officially available in the Philippines and I got to test it a bit. We're getting the Snapdragon 800, and the Gear Watch is also available. The leather-like back is okay to me. I would not want the back to be the real leather as leather would wear out. No complaints about the user interface. The screen is very brilliantly clear with full HD. The s Pen and neew air trigger app is very resposive. Overall impression is as good as the Note II.
It's now available at Smart free at P2000 ($47) monthly unlimited data postpaid. I'm waiting for 2 months till my old contract expires as I really think it's too much to cash out, at a cost of 3/4 of an Alienware MX14 laptop which I recently bought! And I agree that Samsung should have priced the Gear at $150 to gain more customers for the Note III.
McQ, 28 Sep 2013So finally does the n3 have a functional FM tuner?it doesn't have radio at all. I'll switch to HTC One Max
There's nothing beasty about this machine, if you've used Note 1 and 2. I have used both.
It's barely 20-25% more than Note 2, either in terms of features or functions etc.
Note 2 was worth upgrading from Note 1, but not Note 3 from Note 2.
If you are using Note 1, then this may be a good step up, else wait for Note 4 or 5.
In India, Note 3 is costing Rs.50k, which is unheard of and very unreasonable.
Very strange that it doesn't come with Radio!!!
I am using a note 2 as of now and I m very much impressed with its operation. Battery awesome. Am getting a note 3 in a couple of days time. Wish to ask 1 question to all who have already got this beast. Does the company provide the flip cover for this beast along with the phone or is it separate.. awaiting reply. Thanx in advance
I don't know why people rate this crap call it Note 3 to High! it's not even worth it, i played with it in store and i noticed that the screen isn't that sharp like SGS4, camera ok but not great, the whole phone fells like a toy plus i saw the YouTube reviews games performance isn't that great at all even with these massive hardware this thing still lag!

Fer9, 28 Sep 2013Does this phone support OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) for its camera? Please reply me. Tq.No, it's only LG G2 that supports OIS with a 13 MP sensor. And it's much cheaper and well built with a stunning 5.2" edge-to-edge display and it never lags,Note series have tons of bezels a Samsung superphones suffet lags.

Please reply me.
and fyi it's combined iPhone 5s and 5c sale! not just 5s you know?
Launching such a power full device also when Samsung exertion is to stay on the peak Samsung should avoid fake things like note 3 leather back . If Samsung brings note range with a premium quality real stuff like XPERIA Z 1 and Apple 5s did then SAMSUNG will see the definite results and will stay on peak for long time. Covering this weakness SAMSUNG must introduce new things in note range as well as up gradation.
To GSM ARENA
95% popularlity; Does it mean 95 people(from 100 people) buy or like note 3??? How about your survey???
I think it is impossible!
APPLE have sold their iPhone 5s " 9 million" in three days launching(not include China&Asia)
Fingerprint Tec is so nice and secure!
So, iPhone 5s is 99% popularlity worldwide
It is the best smart phone ever in the phone history, design custom make for professional user, not for entertainment based (IPhone user) or any other follower in the phone industry. It is the smallest note book you ever own that can fulfilled your personal satisfaction for the pleasure or working and entertainment.
