    • Anon

      you can expect that from a low end and cheap phone…

  • Mozaik

    49000rs (900$) :(.

  • samrat

    am using the phone since 3 days and there is problem with it till now. cam quality and display quality is superior to S4 as i ditched my S4 for the note 3. however in one of the phone reviews i found that the snapdragon version consumes much less ram than the octa core version which is true. over all its awesome although i got for a less price

    • deepakmallick

      its good but price is so high

    • kavi

      What sort of prob are u talking about? Exynos consumes 1.6-1.8gb ram in idle where else snapdragon 800 version occupies 1-1.2 ram in idle…

  • mits

    Am planning to buy mote 3 in Singapore, with 4g lte, will it wrk in India (bangalore) ?

    • Vishal

      It will work. If not locked to network.

  • Richard Benjamin Samson

    under budget phablet i got one and very awesome.
    i have the international version

  • BravoAbhi

    OMG this is very expensive 49,900!



    • Ankit Banerjee

      It won’t unfortunately. Right now 4G LTE (Airtel only so far) in India is limited to data only, i.e. accessible via dongle. And I think there might be a difference in the bands, but I’ll need to look into that and get back to you.

  • Manik

    It’s 2 expensive but also best. Love this phone in 1st look only. Definately: buy it after some time.

  • Suresh Roy

    Its too expensive , seeing the combo price of Rs 72,000/- (N3 + Gear). The combo price should be between Rs 50,000/- to Rs 55,000/-

    • Anshul

      I agree, 40-42k for the note 3 and 13-15k for the gear, maybe after 6 months or so the prices will come down. Plus why the inferior exynos is coming at the same price level as the snapdragon one, From ebay singapore if you order you can get note 3 round about 45k with shipping and the better snapdragon version not this shit.

    I prefer Apple comparetively Samsung
