  • Addymore

    Not so impressed……!!!!

  • Taya

    this is the phone of my dreams! It’s cool and I love the new design. Can’t wait to upgrade when this phone comes to the US. :-)

  • jjordan

    I like it a lot but what I need to know is how many nits brightness? Is the 3200 mag battery really enough?

    • FL Guy

      Agree on the brightness question – S3 & S4 displays were VERY disappoint ing in strong daylight (pretty much not usable outside in sunny FL). Need to know the brightness of the screen .

      I find it pretty interesting that none of the early reviews have mentioned this specification. Apparently Samsung is not saying much about that particular aspect. Do they not think/realize that it is important? (Or are they perhaps not proud of it? :-)

      • jjordan

        Exactly I feel like brightness is where the note 2 loses big time as well…AMOLED screens are beautiful but if you can’t see them outside at all what good are they…its going to be the difference between the g2 and note 3 for me

  • Vchamp2k

    Sammy, i wanted and waited for some strong reasons to upgrade my note2. But just the spec bump and screen size bump wont help you stay as an android market leader. Why did you want to stick to exact 1 year refresh cycle when there are no major innovations to attract current note2 owners? Why didnt you take few more months and bring in water/shatter/dust proof capabilities or any other major innovations? You spent 1 year just to re-design the back cover, since everyone was concerned about plastic. You spent 1 year to add few mah in the battery capacity. The new software features that you have brought in can be applied on note2, why do you have to introduce a new device. Just to use the smart watch, do you want me to upgrade to note 3. When my note2 can still perform faster and make me happy everyday, i dont want to buy a note3 myself. And you will lose the market if you dont watch your handset pricing. Do not try to compete with apple pricing. There are lot of chinese manufacturers look quite promising and lot of companies like sony & htc bringing in innovations. Dont dig a graveyard and burry yourself….

  • Scorpineo

    Which version is better? The Snap800 or Exynos Octo? I heard the Exynos Octo has overheating issues?

  • Physiguy

    Oh man! I madly want this phone. I am amazed by its spec and what it features, especially the spen. It is great but I wish it support ois and has more apps on the knox.
