But, don't worry about 4G, it's just a huge transfer rate that's not very usable, even, since you're not going to download nor upload large files over your LIMITED data plan.
LTE would matter more for users having an unlimited data plan. Even so, in 3.5G (H+) the download and upload speed rates are good enough in most parts of the world. H+ 6 to 11Mbit/sec and LTE +-35 to +50Mbit/sec You see? Only useful when downloading and uploading large files over an UNLIMITED DATA plan. Otherwise, LTE is a near a waste. Good if there's, ok if there isn't.
I'd worry more for the CPUs/SoCs comparison: Exynos + its GPU vs S800 + its GPU. But, if you're living where there's no LTE, from the carriers you're only going to get the N9000 which is the Exynos version one. The same is for my country; Peru.
An easier choice would be the Xperia Z1 or Z Ultra.
Please rate so people can see.

Samsung have confirmed that the regional restrictions will lift after first activation of a SIM from the correct region. After this the device can be used in any region.

Not that it's gonna matter to me, but I'm curious if this handset has notification LED? Would be cool to have but won't keep me from getting it if it doesn't when my contract ends. Thanks :)
4G services are already launched in some regions and under launch in other regions by Mobile operators in India. Will the model N9000 of Note 3 work with 4G connection as it does not have LTE?
Finally sold my s4 bought this beast & it is awesome faster smother brighter bigger than s4 better camera than s4 back cover is awesome
DEAR SAMSUNG HATERS..GET THE FACTS BEFORE COMMENTING. .
While Samsung’s wordings aren’t very clear, it seems that the Galaxy Note 3 will actually be usable everywhere, but not before it is activated with a SIM from the region it was bought in. Once you activate it/use it with a local SIM, you’ll be able to visit other regions/travel abroad and use it with SIM cards from that particular region without issues. This is likely to reduce grey imports by retailers and those who want to make a quick buck by importing the device and selling it at higher prices, as the retailer would have to open the box to activate it before selling it, which would make it less attractive to a buyer.
This is a smart MOVE from GIANT COMPANY like Samsung.
why this phone is not protected by Corning Gorilla Glass ?? thanks
