I'm a smart phone user from way back, the Treo 600 was my first smart phone. I've been on the Android platform since the first Evo, then went to the Vivid and, never thought I would say this, switched to a Samsung product and never looking back. The Note 3 is the fastest phone I've used flying from app to app with no delay and I'm not a kind user in this. I like to switch from one to another constantly. I've done just a little multitasking and, so far, the phone handles it without a blip. I just did a Google Maps search in one window while playing a YouTube video and the search flew while the video played without a hickup. The phone's massive list of features can be a bit overwhelming, I left the popup hints running for the first week to help me remember what the action items were and could do. The phone is well organized. One of my favorite features (admittedly this is probably an Android 4.3 feature) is the ability to search the settings menu. How often in the past have I laboriously clicked setting after setting to try and remember how to change something? The S-pen is the way to go. I've actually moved Swype from my primary keyboard to secondary so that I can use the S-pen to enter all my data. Admittedly it struggles a bit working in a window in Dolphin browser but in Gmail I can simply write an email, and my handwriting is awful. Any number of people complain about the size of the phone. I do occasionally shiver as I one-hand the phone and feel it unbalanced in my very average size hands. Still, I find I can pretty much one hand whatever I want but this is where S-voice and Google Now are your friends. Use the voice to control your phone. Buy a bluetooth earpiece (you should have one for driving anyway) and use it to control your phone. My complaints are minor. No phone is perfect. S-voice cannot dial numbers without touching the screen to accept the number. I find K-lets to be a better choice for driving but wish I could have my cake and eat it too, there is no way to have both programs answering bluetooth hands free. I have no use for the Magazine app that appears with the swipe from bottom motion and there is no way to reassign the motion to Google Now or another more useful function. I continue to look for a dependable way to backup the S-notes and such. It shouldn't be this challenging. The Samsung Note III is the best phone on the market and it will be a while before anyone including Samsung tops this.

Let me begin by saying that this is probably the last remaining android phones on the market that you can still add memory to. That in my opinion is perhaps the best reason to own this phone. I've owned (and still own) every version of the Galaxy Note series and the only thing that makes this one (or the Note 2) better than its predecessor is the software updates. The Note 3 is thinner than its predecessors and it feels nice when thumbing through the menus, but other than that there is really no reason to buy this one over the other versions e.g. The Note 2. The leatherette backing is going to wear and show signs of age within a matter of months giving you new phone an aged feel too soon, and the cases that protect your investment i.e. the Otterbox series will only hasten the wear on the backing. In summation, if you really need a phone, then this could be a good choice because it can grow with you via the expandable memory, as long as you don't mind the wear and tear that is surely going to accompany the leatherette back cover and the inability to buy a replacement.

In many ways its better than the newer Samsung models
from The "OC" in SoCal
The greatest feature to me is the removable battery. I have the screen turned down to the lowest setting, WiFi and Bluetooth turned off when I'm not using them, a 4700mAh battery, occasional plugins to power up and I still run out of power in the afternoon. With the removable battery I can swap in a fully charged battery in less than a minute and I'm ready to go until late at night. Yes I know - there are external battery boosters - but they are a waste. If I wanted to go around with my phone plugged into a slow charging power source I could just stay home. By the way the Note 7 problem might be fixed with a removable battery option. Send me a couple and I'll try it out for you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
With 3 years on the market it still a great device, not thinking on a new device for now.
Samsung galaxy note 3
Freezes a lot and locks screen on own but besides that I like the size
This is a great phone!
It is a well-made device that is easy to use. The crystal clear screen is the perfect size. You won't be disappointed with all the features, especially the stylus!
Very sleek, and good for both business and play! Great back camera, the front is good too but not as well.
from Lubbock, tx
Other than having to download apps for ads for the samsung games, excellent product. The leather back doesnt slip out of my hand
from LR, AR
Great phone with sd slot and the S pen accessory, Note 8
Oldie but definitely a Goldie
I know this is older version of the excellent Samsung Note series of smart phones. But the design, flexibility, performance and features are as good today as anything we Lee on the market today. Expandable micro SD card will take up to 100gigs if storage. Replaceable battery means you can use this forever. Oh and the stylus...great usable feature for annotating photos, making notes, and more. This is why this amazing product continues to deliver value for a ll who own it...
