Don't like the back of it at all but it's going to be in a case anyway so whatever.

My wife is seriously considering this for her next phone. She has an iPhone 4S now and wants to wait to see what the next iPhone looks like but she likes the size of this and the stylus and the fact that you can do multi-tasking on it.

Yea the stylus is so nice on the Note. I never thought I would like a stylus on a phone till I used my sisters, but it really makes some tasks a lot easier and more comfortable. I think the biggest thing for me is the 3GB of ram. That's going to be huge for what this phone can still do 2-3 years down the line.

never understood the whole stylus thing.
+ it's fuging huge.

The size of it isn't for everyone for sure, but I think it's a perfect size. Gives you the functionality of a cell phone with a screen that you can manage multiple things at once on....

Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch is expected to land in the US in early October, wireless carriers revealed late Thursday.
T-Mobile said the devices would launch the device duo to its customers on October 2, while AT&T indicated the pre-orders of the Galaxy Note 3 would ship "around" October 1. However, the phablet will be available on AT&T for $299 with a two-year contract or $35 a month with AT&T Next, while T-Mobile is offering the device for $199 down and 24 monthly payments of $21
Meanwhile, Verizon announced Wednesday it would begin accepting pre-orders for the devices at 6 a.m. PT on Friday, although the landing page does not hint when customers can expect delivery.

Not sure if this has been discussed here, but Verizon is joining the upgrade when you want bandwagon, with a catch...
So you have to pay 50% of the phones retail price off to do your upgrade. With the note that would be about 350-400 dollars. Not too bad all things considered....

Probably work for businesses and people with significant disposable income...

And trading in decently used older phones usually will net you 50-100 bucks to deduct from gazelle, etc.

AT&T and T-Mobile will be releasing the Galaxy Note 3 in the early part of October while Verizon says that its Galaxy Note 3, which is up for pre-order, will ship out by October 10th. This is far earlier than the Galaxy Note 2 which didn’t arrive until November 29th last year.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will come equipped with a number of big time upgrades including a larger 1080p display, quad-core processor of the Snapdragon 800 variety, new S Pen features, upgraded multitasking, a brand new 13MP camera, 4G LTE, and a faux leather back instead of a polycarbonate one.

Finally got mine over the weekend. Doing a battery test with light use first, than I'll do a heavy test over the weekend when I can use my phone more. Light use results are really promising. Few calls, maybe an hour or so of browsing, and some tweeting/texting/hangouts as well....
Ended up opting for the Edge program too, so this time next year I'll be snagging a Note 4....

End of my light test since I actually need my phone today. Did about 45 minutes of calls yesterday, as well as another 15-30 minutes of browsing the web and some light tweeting/texting/hangouts. Pretty impressed with the results I got for such a big screen. Had wi-fi on the whole time, and the brightness was about 3/4 level....

That is pretty impressive. My Droid Maxx puts up those kinds of numbers and battery life was it's main purpose.
I have to say that I'm not super thrilled with 4.4 KitKat, as it seems buggier than Jellybean.
