Big Dissapointment

plok888 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I have had this phone for around 3months now and I have been experiencing difficulties. The UI of Samsung has been very poor. I have contacted Samsung multiple times and they have been unresponsive. I would not recommend this phone unless you are in desperate need.

A game changer

iTechies has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

note 3 is still the best phone out there today! and even the G2/G2 pro is still nothing compared to this phone! it has tons of features especially the s pen which gives you experience more than just a phone!

Pros

  • Big screen that gives you a crisp display!
  • S pen that makes your note 3 more than just a phone!
  • 3GB of RAM so it can handle many apps one at a time.(multitasking)
  • 2.3Ghz quad-core is way too fast
  • wireless charging support
  • air command is pretty nice!
  • ultra-fast browsing experience
  • leather like back design.
  • light weight device

Cons

  • sometimes, it bothers me because i have to use two hands because its too big i guess
  • dont fit in my pocket
  • unrivaled
  • sometimes its dangerous to take it outside because of thieves that can snatch this huge phone easily
  • battery is not tht good.

can be better but still the best smartphone

lllbenjolll has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Note 3 is the best yet it lacks a lot of things i need in a smartphone. This is my choice because of the s-pen, sd card slot, and removable battery options. Samsung softwares that go with the s pen make note 3 great. I do a lot of multitasking for work and daily tasks. That is why i really want the note 4 to be improved since it is i think going to be my next phone. I can't buy other phones that dont have a wacom digitizer. So please, do everything that i have suggested and let other phone manufacturers follow your lead. The secret why samsung is the number 1 choice of most 1. Sd card slot 2. removable battery. The reason why Note series is the best is because of the s pen. :) Looking forward to seeing the Note 4!!! Don't be stupid in the upgrades. Listen to what i have said in the "Cons". :)

Build quality 8/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 9/10
Internet 10/10
Multimedia 8/10 Put the speakers infront like the HTC one has done! It is more audible especially when watching movies and videos.
Camera 7/10 Great rear camera but can be so much better. Use 42mgpx like nokia has on its phone. Front camera should be atleast 16 mgpx with flash since people are fond of selfies. Upgrade the damn thing!!!!!! Ive seen 13 mgpx front cams and samsung is still using 2 mgpx.
UI speed 9/10 Touch wiz should have a speed option like nova launcher has. I hate the delay thingy, it feels laggy.
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10
Display 9/10
Battery 8/10 3200mah for 5.7 screen is just above average. In gaming mode, i grt 6 hours only. In 4G youtubing and surfing, i get 7 hours. Put 4000mah and still removable!!!!!!!!!

Pros

  • micro sd card slot!!!!!!! :)
  • removable battery!!!!!!! :) this options makes me choose samsung since other phone manufacturers are stubborn to give this option. Lg G2, HTC one, sony z1 don't have this option. they are all stupid.
  • s-pen!!!!! :) love the s-pen
  • multi tasking

Cons

  • front camera is 2mgpx. upgrade it to 16mgpx with flash for better selfies!!!! and please make a physical button for this like iphones have!!!
  • make your battery bigger!!! 4000mah should be perfect for this screen size!!! or atleast put this option for heavy users like me. i dont mind about the weight! When you test your battery, test it like everyone is a heavy user. 12hours of 3D gaming.
  • removable back cover should be replaceable. it i can buy new ones, i dont need to put case on it.
  • Put the damn speakers in front like HTC one!!!! i want clearer sound when watching videos!!!! i dont like to put the phone upside down when listening to music!!!!!
  • touch wiz (i hate the delay) i want a snappy launcher. Put an option for speed like nova launcher has!
  • s-pen has delay especially if i write fast. make it faster without delay so that itll feel like i am really writing on paper. :)
  • bezel can be slimmer like lg g2.
  • not dust and water proof.

This phone is the epitome of awesomeness.

TasHsn has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Bought myself one last month. And I have to say, comparatively, this phone is the best among its competitors, although not perfect ( which no smartphone is). I can't say I had a pretty god time with Sammy and TouchWiz before, being a former owner of a Galaxy S2, but this Note 3 just blew my mind away.

Build quality 7/10 Design is pretty much elegant, but the buttons and the glossy sides sometimes feel ... unappealing. Very.
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 9/10 I think it might just be my unit, but almost every day, I experience a crash while heavy browsing, even if once. Might be a bug.
Multimedia 10/10 Big and vibrant screen. Hell it deserves 10/10 in this department.
Camera 8/10 I'd thought they'd go with 20MP camera. Hence, a bit disappointed, although th 13MP doesn't fail to shoot amazing photos at all.
UI speed 7/10 Even with so much power in it, there are a few significant lags which range from 3-5 seconds. ToushWiz is still too heavy?
Everyday usage 9/10 I find the S-Pen and its features pretty useful.
Text input 9/10 With that big screen, typing is like a breeze. I kinda hate the keyboard though.
Display 9/10
Battery 9/10 The battery is pretty impressive, but I actually expected the battery capacity to be 3500mAh+ , given the bigger screen compared to the Note 2 (I am a heavy user). The battery is removable though, which is always a plus.

Pros

  • Bigger, brighter FHD screen
  • Slimmer, lighter and compact
  • Faux-leather backing

Cons

Top of the game....

robert7107 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Samsung isn't just the best Android maker but the best smartphone hands down. Galaxy line is so far ahead of the game it's scary.. IPhone had its day but unfortunately with the galaxy s line and now with note line. There isn't much true competition the note 3 screams it..... Not perfect but close to it.....

Everyday usage 10/10 Very much so... I use it for countless uses....
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10 Gorgeous...... Just hits you right in your face......
Battery 10/10 Battery is beast.... A few people have given it a negative.... Hmm., has off, brightness set.... I use the phone all day... 6am at 100% 9pm in 20% range... We're talking downloads, YouTube, gaming oh my...... Battery is awesome.....

great phone

morrowfellowmen has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

great phone, with a good screen and lots of good functions. i see people say it has a bad battery and i want to know what they are doing with it. my wife has a iPhone 5 and my phone always has more than 30% left when we go to bed. she has to charge her phone during the day to make it last, and we use it about the same amount throughout the day.

Build quality 9/10 yes its not metal, but it is better than other samsung phones. the leather type back doesn't get all scratched like metal phones and doesn't stain.
Reception 9/10 like all other phones i have owned.
Call quality 9/10
Internet 10/10 great on the big screen.
Multimedia 9/10 multi tasking is awesome on this phone.
Camera 8/10 if you have a samsung its on pair with that. i don't us the camera a lot but thats cause i don't take pictures.
UI speed 10/10 wife has a iPhone, buddy has a lg g2 and my phone is always done downloading before them.
Everyday usage 10/10 not much you can't do on this phone
Text input 9/10 two handed but when i had a smaller phone i used two hands anyway.
Display 10/10 top 3 phone in display for sure.
Battery 9/10 better than most phones and with the 3.0 usb it charges super fast.

Pros

  • great screen.
  • good battery
  • awesome for multi-tasking
  • has lots of features
  • fastest phone out there.
  • fits in pockets great cause its so slim
  • best phone on market

Cons

  • you need two hands most of the time
  • screen smudges easily but most phones are like this.

An Over rated device

anthonio360 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

The Samsung Galaxy note 3 (SM-N900) is just an over rated device not a smartphone I will say, I think it all boils down to Samsung U.I the so called touch wiz its actually a poor U.I making the look and feel of every samsung phone look kiddish compared to the premium look of the HTC ONE sense 5, the Samsung Note 3 got lots of bugs and the battery life is of this device is absolutely miserable for a 2013 flagship phone. Camera looks fake like a photo shop, the qhd amoled isn't sharp,a lot of features which doesn't either function properly or probably useless. It goes on & on.......

Build quality 10/10 The build of the device is sleek,light and well designed
Reception 8/10 Has no problem with reception so far but hold up a sec it sometimes takes a little while for the Internet service to come on
Call quality 8/10 Call quality is same to a 2010 flagship phone no major improvement
Internet 9/10 I'll give it a 9 because of the screen size,it actually got a 5.7" so surfing the internet is always fun
Multimedia 9/10 pretty ok
Camera 5/10 looks over saturated
UI speed 4/10 Not encouraging for a 3gig ram device and over a million core processor
Everyday usage 5/10 Battery life sucks, so it actually affects the daily usage
Text input 9/10 the oem keyboard is pretty responsive and nice to type with
Display 7/10 Very Very poor display with the so called touch wiz and amoled display
Battery 7/10 Battery really sucks

Pros

  • Big screen 5.7
  • memory card slot,up to 64 gig
  • Light weight
  • great design
  • removable battery
  • Nice keyboard

Cons

  • Poor battery life
  • Poor U.I ( touch wiz)
  • slow
  • lots of bugs and bloatware

CSURamsJosh has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I've had tons of phones, in 2013 alone I had the Droid Razr Maxx, Galaxy S4, and this phone, and I am so pleased with this phone! The only things I've been a tad disappointed with are the camera, and every once in a while the call quality diminishes. I wish Samsung would have stepped up the S-View case however, because it could have been an awesome accessory! Overall, I LOVE THIS PHONE.

Had the chance to up grade from the Samsung Galaxy Note II to this Beast of a phablet. Like I said, I am a Freak when it comes to the Note series. I had the First one, Second one, and now Number 3. Of course, my next goal is to get the Galaxy Note 2 10.1 Tablet as well as the Galaxy Gear watch.

Best Smartphone I've ever owned! Better than my Motorola RAZR & my I.phones 1,2, & 3

Rockytop has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I upgraded from Motorola Droid Razr the very 1st razr before MAXX and other forms. I haven't owned my Samsung Note 3 nearly as long but I can already tell I am going to be much happier with it. I'm not bashing the RAZR it was great phone if I had waited about another month when the razr MAXX was released I would've probably been alot happier it just went through battery like crazy. We're my Note 3 I charge it when I get home & it charges insainly fast. Then I take off charge sometimes as soon as charged if I need it if not when I go to bed I do. Then next morning still fully juiced were razr may have already started dropping. I go through my day making many calls doing stuff on internet play solitaire way to much. Lol but at end of day when I get home if I forgot to charge it I think it would make it through the next day if not like I said this thing charges like crazy fast. I love the bigger screen. Was little worried it may be to big but it's not. Like that the keyboard has more separation between keys I don't hit wrong keys with my fingers. I also have to say I'm not greatest speller & when I make mistakes it fixes them with actual word I was trying to say not something crazy out of this world where people I'm texting for example don't get word testing or wild words. Also another thing that shocked me was when I viewed photos & videos from my RAZR they were much improved. Anyways I would definitely suggest this phone to anyone looking for new phone.

The First Best phone that I have

mgerreyn65 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I am having this phone for 2 days now and I have discovered all its features and many more to discover. I had no issues with lagging in games and the UI. Its S-Pen Is ultra cool as it is an extraordinary piece which is attached to the galaxy note. I am very happy with this as this is the first flagship phone that I have used by Samsung. I will be looking forward in getting the android 4.4 update.

Awesome phone

phillyundead has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I have had the Note 3 since December and it still rocks! I recently bought the LG G3 and the Note still blows it away. I love getting 2 days on the battery and how fast it charges. The G3 dies very fast and charges slow. This is still the ultimate phablet. Still holding its ground after all the next generation phones came out. The Note series is future proof!

Build quality 10/10 The faux leather backing makes it easy to grip. I prefer it over metal or glass easily.
Reception 10/10 This varies by carrier but with T-Mobile i have great reception and no issues.
Call quality 10/10 Clear and the way it should be.
Internet 10/10 Fantastic for the internet obviously. I love using this versus a tablet. Tablets are too big for me. At that point I'd rather use a computer.
Multimedia 10/10 Great for music and after coming from the Xperia Z, this has a great speaker. Love watching videos on it!
Camera 10/10 Great camera! Taking videos is amazing too. No distortion at all with sound and very clear.
UI speed 9/10 It's touch Wiz guys. Its still very very fast.
Everyday usage 10/10 I'm use to the screen size. Was having typos a lot but now i'm alright. Fits fine in my pockets.
Text input 10/10 You get use to it in a day or two.
Display 10/10 Not the greatest screen but certainly awesome. I'd have a different opinion if i didn't have an Xperia before this.
Battery 10/10 Amazing battery life. Lasts me two days usually.

Pros

  • great screen size
  • fast
  • tons of memory and expandable SD slot
  • SPEN!
  • android 4.4
  • cool features like the swipe to screencap
  • loud speaker
  • charges faster than any phone I've seen
  • incredible battery life

Cons

  • stock email app (not gmail) force closes constantly and freezes the phone.

Note 3

Didn't like it at all. I found it to be far too bulky. The OS wouldn't allow me to play some of the applications I had downloaded. The size became too inconvenient for me. For having the 3 gigs of ram and snapdragon it still decided too lag on me for some reason. I expected better battery life. I did like the pleather back cover since it did not show fingerprints very well. I did like the multi-window feature as well but other than that I was not impressed especially coming from Samsung.
