I never imagined that there were things to improve upon with respect to the Note 2, so I did not plan to by the Note 3, but after a brief analysis of the specs and features of the Note 3, I think it is a device worth having for the following reasons;
1. The speaker is now at the side unlike most other phones and especially the Note 2 which have their speakers on the back such that the speaker is covered when the phone lay on its back.
2. You can now use the S Pen to operate the back, menu and the home buttons.
3. The S Cover that comes with a window to have a summary view of the phone without opening the cover.
4. The action memo mean I can now do more with hand written notes.
So, for the above reasons, I will be going for the NOTE 3.
I am very happy with the plastic components of the device as it will make it lighter and reduce the chance of the device getting hot. For those who complain about the plastic parts, hope all their clothes, TV, cars, shoes etc are made entirely of iron, steel or even gold.
Hey I am also from India and even if leave 4G aspect because 4G is not available in India but what about Snapdragon 800 and 4k recording and playing 4k videos.
Snapdragon 800 is the best chip available in world today and adreno 330 graphics is also very good.

imaximum, 15 Sep 2013unfortunate Note 3 does not using gorilla glass protection! same with note 2.. Samsuck.. *easi... moreI got a note 2 for almost a year now and I haven't cover it with anything but my screen still look as new. If you wanna get one for urself go for it there is no scratch to worry about
For the love of English, is it just me or is it harder to understand the comments around here? ;)
For me, I'm still debating on whether I should wait for S5 or just go for this phablet.
Is this phone the screen protector Corning Gorilla Glass 3 ?
I finally not realized that the phone has FM radio?
Please comment on this phone's display protection and the body of Galaxy Note3.
I am an Indian customer and I think we all (who ever is in India) should show Samsung that we deserve the TOP specifications when we buy the phone for such a high price....I'm not going to buy the note3 unless we get the snapdragon 800 here in India.
What if 4G is still not available, I'd still like to use 4G when ever it will be available.
unfortunate Note 3 does not using gorilla glass protection! same with note 2.. Samsuck.. *easily scratched :(
Thunder blaster, 15 Sep 2013Oh.... I forgate sony have wather proof... any pepple use a smart phone real life..not the un... moreWhy not rather think that water proofing could be very useful if in case you splash water accidentally on your phone or drop it anywhere that's wet. And another thing you won't worry if you need to take a call and your hands are wet. Some people would prefer a water proof/resistant phone not because they intend to text or play games underwater.
sambhav, 15 Sep 2013okay so here it is,

It is better than G2. Weird thing is:
This is a phablet, G2 is not. But they are almost same sized. Samsung are exploding again! They are out of space. I love them.
p.s Owner of GS4
p.s 2 - Not samsung fanboy. Never used samsung until 15 days ago (bought GS4)
Guys, This is the last bastion of Plasticky era, any nxt S5 or Note 4 will be metal, aluminum. and archtech 64 bit, thus facilitating Ram Memory to 6 MB. Price touching 900$ as of now, will wait to stabilise.
Carlos , 15 Sep 2013Yet the LG G2 beats it in benchmarks with the same Chipset. Cheak agin....
Note 3 is clear win...
And octa core are give result better than snapdragon...
Carlos, 15 Sep 2013The iPhone 5s isn't already obsolete. It has what it needs to run iOS and the features it has ... moreThe iPose isn't simple at all when it comes to file transfer. Or installing an application, even a free one, you need to set up an Apple ID and give your credit card, unless you dig your head in order to find a trick to skip the latter part. In Android you need nothing to transfer a file or an app. As long as you have the app file located on your SD card, you can easily install it without even to connect to internet.
And how long does it take to turn on and off hardware components like WiFi, Bluetooth, hot spot, torchlight, etc?
In Android you just pull down the panel and everything you need is there. In iPose you need to look for the settings icon, located somewhere in your home pages between dozens of other squares (yes I forgot, in iPose you're limited to store only 9 items in a folder! WTF?!?!?) and read between the tiny lines.
So where is the so called user friendly statement comes into expression exactly?
