October 2nd can't happen any sooner. I'll skip my college classes and wait an hour before T-Mobile opens to get that phone if I have to.

I'm still not sure. I've got to get it in my hand to decide. I've no upgrade, so I'd be paying full price, and then selling my Note II. Still on the fence. If I had the upgrade, I would probably jump at it without hesitation.

Watch out for that camera protrusion. It's really a downer.

Waiting for the 1520 patiently... The 1520 has much better specs, and way better hardware overall... WP is such a joy to use❗❗

Much better specs? First, we don't even know what specs it will have officially. Second, even if we go based on rumors, the 1520 actually has the same chipset, same 1080p display (though bigger), and actually 1 GB less of RAM. It will have a better camera, but something that most Nokia fans I've talked to can't seem to understand that the camera isn't the only thing about the phone, and isn't a deciding factor, especially when the camera on the Note 3 is great by itself. Lastly, the 1520 will be running WP8, which we ALL know is less functional than Android, especially Android with Samsung's added features. Just because you might not use those features, doesn't mean it's just as functional.

Just to add most phablet competitors produce tablet sized phones which nobody wants. A tablet does not fit comfortably fit into pockets. Samsung produce phablets which are about the perfect size. Sony Z1 Ultra and Nokia 1520 are too big. Samsung could fit a 7" screen into those monster footprints.

I think it's most beautiful smartphone today. Looks classy. And this "leather" is not only leather pattern over the plastic , but also soft touch coating.

I don't like that leather look either. It's a deal breaker for me.

I can't wait to hold it in my hand. It seems too large but I love the faux leather back and the stitching.
