King of phablets.. ..the size is perfect, battery time decent for a smart phone, and performance is amazing! I've never loved a phone like the Note; had 1, 2 and 3.. ..will probably buy the 4 too!

I read users saying they had problems with WiFi, no problems here works perfect picks up better than old phone Galaxy S plus.

Don't let Scare stories about region lock worry you, The region lock is deactivated after 5 minutes worth of voice calls.
See here [...]. Make sure the phone is connected to internet also.

Excellent screen bright and very clear with it's 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Camera is great and if you get Camera360 free on Play Store all Effect's work in real time so you see effect as you take unlike old phone.

Battery life is very good, Has 3 GB of Ram so don't suffer lag and 32 GB of storage + you can add up to 64 GB Micro SD card.

S-Pen is great as it has Wacom digitser built into screen for accurate drawing with different level of pressure (same as Bamboo pens on pc)
If you like to draw you get free full version of Sketchbook its in the App's Galaxy Plus folder, you can edit photo's using layers import Photo.

Make sure you get the N9005: Quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset 32 MB SMN9005ZKEBTU if you wont UK 2 year Samsung warranty.

Bought Amazon Fulfilled from SkynetShopping and in product description title it stated that the Note 3 was "Region Locked". When I checked the C.S.C. (Customer Service Center) number with Samsung , it turned out to be a Asian Global Market version (Grey Import) and as such Samsung UK would not honor the warranty, and if it needed repair, it would have to be sent to Samsung Singapore. Returned to Amazon who were good about refund.

VINE VOICEon 21 November 2013
I am thoroughly pleased with my Note 3.

My eco-system was (and indeed primarily is) Apple and I'm coming to this unit from a 2 year old iPhone 4s which I was very happy with. Yes I did consider the 5s and have had one in my grubby mits many times at the local Apple Store. Smartphones are a way of life now, and although the iPhone re-ignited my somewhat lapsed interests in music and photography, those have also grown to now include writing and my desire to carry a journal which could be hand-written to privately. This is the point where a new iPhone sadly fell of my shopping list.

The standards set by the iPhone in music playback and photography are comfortably matched by the Note 3 in my opinion. Getting music onto the phone from my iTunes library is certainly fiddlier, but by no means a challenge. Likewise iPhoto on my Mac recognises and loads photo and video from the Note 3. I am very happy with the results. The move to Android was painless.

Its difficult to know where to start though with the S-Pen capabilities though. The handwriting recognition somewhat defies belief and Samsung developers are clearly taking the S-software line very seriously indeed. The supplied apps suit my needs perfectly and a massive / unexpected bonus was the integration with Evernote (and free upgrade to Evernote Premium). Now thats just taking it too far :)

There are plethora of Note 3 web reviews micro analysing pixel density, processor speed and yes the over-hyped-beyond-belief region lock ( funnily enough, I don't spend my working life globe trotting with suitcase full of sim cards). I'm not going there, it sounds great, imaging is excellent and the unit's design is sublime. I have not regretted my purchase one bit.

This phone is not a fashion item and its not trying to be. If all you need from a smartphone is voice/txt/web/mail and a logo to show show off, look elsewhere. If however you make a living (or aspire to) from creative pursuits, are intrigued by how the incredible S-Pen technology may suit your work/study/play, then this smartphone is an absolute must-try.

Update 28/11
=========
I just though I'd add a footnote ... having tried a few cases; I've settled on an excellent Otterbox Commuter. Top quality protection and it gives the Note 3 a cool industrial look / feel.

great cannot fault the phone is any way much better than my previous idevice battery life is excellent not to mention how fast it charges. phone can be a bit large but men shouldn't be running around with little dinky devices anyway. the phone weighs no where near as much as people perceive.

over all I will probably keep this phone for a few years as the new tech is not an improvement just loaded with useless gimmikc that get disabled after a few weeks

This is by far the best phone I could have ever used. Samsung has really done it this time and created a perfect phone.
I was an Iphone user before this and after using this I will never go back. It has the best battery which lasts for full day with heavy use and has enough power to run everything.

If you are thinking of buying this phone go ahead you will be glad you did it.

Few things everyone should know before buying make sure you know which model you are buying and for what region.

There are 2 models n9005 qualcomm processor with 4G and n9000 Exynox processor.

These phone are locked according to different regions so make sure you get the European model which will work in Europe afcourse if you live in Europe.

Go ahead if you are thinking of buying this phone you will never use any other phone once you try this.

Simply the best. Forget any other size phone. It's better rooted then you can clear out all the bloat ware.
