How Amazing is the Note 3?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Rumor has it the Note 3 will be 179.99 at midnight on Amazon wireless and i'm thinking very hard about it. Those who have it. How amazing is it? I currently have an S3 now.

First off. Are you comfortable using a phablet of that size? Will you use/need the stylus and the functionality it provides? If the answer to both is yes then definitely consider it.
I recently had a go on it, and I must say it impressed me way more than the note 2. I like the aesthetics, with the leather back n all. The stylus and its implementation, makes one thing I find extremely irritating on any other phone a pleasing experience: "Multitasking and content transfer between apps".

The hardware is top notch, no question. It will fly through anything you throw at it.

I gave it a miss due to ergonomics. A 5" screen is the limit of what I personally find comfortable. For everything my phone can't do I use my tablet or my touch laptop.

Take a look at a "software features" video. It should give you a better idea of how it could apply to your smartphone needs smile.gif

Here's one to give you an idea

It is the best phablet hands down and it have a the best pen support for any phone currently available as well, if phablet size(seems you don't like this) & pen support are your #1 need then it will be amazing for you.

Personally I have no need for a phablet and have no need for pen support, so I prefer to get a Nexus phone & tablet for less cost off contract and no 100+ touchwiz "features" I don't need.

I have a note 2 and now every phone feels too small, I cant go less than 5.5" anymore and have average size hands. You will love the note 3 considering its even faster.

Love it love it love it. I actually use the stylus features also. The screen is just amazing from colors to quality pure awesome sauce. I came from iPhone 3-3Gs-4-4s to S3 to note 2 to Note 3 and its the phone I've fallen for the hardest.

Of course you'll use the stylus.

It wouldn't be a Galaxy Note without a stylus tongue.gif.

IMO the biggest contributing factor as to why I think the Galaxy Note 3 is the best smartphone out right now is the screen and functionality.

No other smartphone offers the same robustness yet in a compact, sleek form factor.
