Haha by your recent comments one would say your favorite phone is the Lumia 1520 :) yet you have a Note 3. Why is that?

S3.

I'm actually planning on getting an iPhone 5S (32GB Champaign) or a Lumia device come spring to try something different. All I need is for T-Mobile to release the a 929 variant and I'm pulling the trigger. As for the 5S, it's been two years since I've personally owned an iOS device. I'll still keep my Note 3 of course, but swap between whatever I choose and my Note.

Depending on how my check tomorrow looks, I might pick up an iPad Air for myself. :')

Nice to see people like you who dare to try everything and do not live in a bubble with a company's name on it.
I myself want to buy a phablet but is afraid that it will feel too big. Was it easy to adapt from S3 to Note 3?

When I first got it, the Note 3 felt huge and thought I would never get used to it. Two days later, I found anything smaller than the Note 3 completely small and unusable. It literally is the perfect size for everything, especially watching videos. I have anOtterBox on it, and it still fits in my pocket with no problem. Charging the phone from 1 to 100% takes about 80 minutes, which is faster than any phone I've ever seen.

Pull the trigger and get this phone. I have absolutely no complaints about anything at all. It's literally perfect in my opinion.

The App gap is decreasing with a pace. Good to see this. Carry on WP.

This game was the main reason I was going to switch to a Nexus 5... I know that is very lame, but most people underestimate how much I love Despicable Me. So now I am happy... However, as it has already been pointed out (+1 PapaSmurf), would love to run this on a 5+" screen!

Waiting for a new T-Mobile, Windows Phone.
