The Note 3 "unlocked" models are still locked to regions like DVD's and thus not very attractive to globetrotters or international purchasers who are being asked to pay £600 or so for a crippled device. There is a sticker on all boxes purchased in EU. A lot of people have returned their phones or cancelled their orders due to this.
Stupidest mistake by Samsung...first flawed design (screen breaking) of SGS 4...and now this stupidity with region lock note 3. Seems like in trying to become the next Apple, they are digging their own grave...if they don't retract on there stupid mistakes....I'm moving out of Samsung for my next phone...may be Sony Xperia ultra or LG G2...or perhaps iPhone 5S....
rohan, 25 Sep 2013why don't you buy one FM radio instead of a smart phone or a phablet? I hope it will save your... moreYou are expecting people to carry one radio and one phone in hand,please comment with sense.

The phone is awesome... very good display and good camera as well... a big hand to samsung developers...
Oh Come on,,,,
Lg G2 has no comparison with Note 3. You can compare G2 with s4 but with note 3 is an insult to N3.
Best Specs N Best Score Worlds Best Fone Ever.
I am waiting for the Battery Test Result.
Also the Xperia Z Ultra is Good Fone but the Camera N Battery N Loud Speaker is Too Week.
Z Ultra Dimensions wise phones Bezel is too large Compare to the Mega 6.3 =
Z Ultra = 179.4 x 92.2 x 6.5 mm 6.4"
Mega6.3 = 167.6 x 88 x 8 mm 6.3"
Also the Note 3 is compaq nothing difference between note2 vs note3. Same size easy to fit in pocket
Bookings in India has not been good as per one of the largest retailers in Bangalore.
i'm a Note II owner and appreciate with it,
dear all who ever used Note II and now changed to Note III, can you share your experience in comparison with this 2 devices all spec like:
- Battery drain ...
I much appreciated with all the hard works of Samsung company on improving the designing, hardware, software for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but one thing is really disapponting me that they have not included the function of FM Stereo Radio in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In some developed country internet are much cheaper with wider coverage so without a function of FM Radio customer still can listen it throgh the internet but like in my country which is still under developing country internet is very expensive many people still no access or can afford it. So could Samsung reconsider for putting back radio function on their next smart phones release such as Samsung S5, Note 4 etc. Thank you for your attention and listening feedbacks from your customer from a under developing country Cambodia
No FM Radio! :( . Stop telling me to download FM radio app because it is not FM radio. You connect via data/internet where you are charged and not via FM radio where you get all local stations for free! And don't ask me who needs it. There are. It might not be you, but there are.
who need fm radio, go to play stor get free fm radio app 100% free...
Hi. Jst bought the exynos octa version yesterday in india. It was so smooth and fast Samsung has ever produced. Coz earlier sammy phones were laggy. But am amazed it is buttery smooth. Right now am still exploring it. Will post the full review later.
