SD card, cover/case

I'm a planner. The Note 3 will fit all of my wants, needs, and requirements for many things pertaining to work and home. That being said, I would like to be ready to roll when I purchase one from T-Mobile. There seems to be little information on which type of SD card to use. The specs say it can take a 64GB SD card, but those seem to be only SDXC cards, whereas the SDHC max out at 32GB. Can the Note 3 take an SDXC card? Or is it moot and I could buy a 32GB SDHC card for less money instead of paying more for a 32GB SDXC where the speeds aren't perceptible?

Also, I usually get a case to protect all my devices (currently using Galaxy S III T-Mo) and wonder if that should even matter with this phone.

Lastly, does the usb 3.0 requir...

The specs on SDHC cards indicate that the max size is 32GB. 64GB would therefore indicate SDXC card capability. That being said you should be good to go either with a 32GB SDHC initially since the SDXC spec is backwards compatible -- meaning that it...

Imma need some help here.

I'm getting myself a new phone soon. But I just don't know which one I'm getting!
I'm in between the Note3, GS4, HTC One and the LG G2.

I like the Note3 features and all, but the dang thing is just too big! The S4 is good, like the Note3 but smaller, but I don't know. The G2 specs are way too cool... but it's an LG. The One is good too, I love BeatsAudio! But as with the G2, the sealed battery and no SD card slot kills it for me. So I'm not quite sure here... Sad

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Smile
If you want everything and the kitchen sink, the Note 3 is your only option. But beware it comes with the kitchen sink. If you just can't get past that gorgeous, ginormous, uber-useful screen, then I would recommend the mostly comparable GSIV with its...

If the HTC One had been waterproof, then I would be okay with no changeable battery, but I laugh when everyday I see some poor Iphone sucker carrying around their charger looking for a place to plug it in at the mall or in a restaurant. (or sealed And...

Darkitty,
You should also consider the Nexus 5, I do know your post is over a month old. But came late to these posts.

Don't discount LG, yes they made some dogs, but so has Samsung and most other brands. If the size is the issue, then t...

KNOX users beware

I just finished speaking with Samsung and wanted to let everyone know a few things about the Knox security system on the Note 3.

First of all, you cannot undo it once it is enabled. So just know before you enter the Knox waters that once in... you're going to keep it on your phone. No big deal if you use or do not use it though.

Second, it is not possible to cut, copy, or paste any information into or from this software. I was trying to copy or cut some work information from my SD card (from my Galaxy S III) which is now in the SD folder into the Knox folder. Not happening. I'll have to create that folder from scratch if I want it secured within the program.

Third, you cannot use any information contained on your Note 3 in the ...

Rich Corinthian Leather

It's funny that a phone marketed to creatives manages to combine so many bad stylistic decisions- even for Samsung, who has a record streak of building really ugly stuff. Fake leather, fake aluminum, and chunky cheap plastic. Apple was raked over the coals for it on the software end, but at least they executed it well- this is just a hot mess.

But the new functionality looks killer. Multi-window is already awesome, and this makes it moreso. And the scrapbook function is brilliant.

Dont get me wrong its a great phone. its awsome and beautiful and i WILL get it....however, it has a small battery for how big the screen is and how high the res on the screen and that awsome prosessor.... i dont see the battery lasting a full day without rooting it. or finding a way to only use a portion of the processor at a time if you can get away with it............9.2 gigahurtz is alot of power for a phone to support... and the screen is so bright and beautiful. i dont know if im gunna just get a bigger battery or see how it handels all this awsome sauce..... also if u think im wrong ur intiteled to ur opion but 3200mah is only 100 mah bigger then the last note... and only 200 mah bigger then the lg g2 witch people say is to small fer ...

Samsung has done it again!

Great article, thanks. I was already impressed with the rumored hardware. The new software features look very intuitive, I'm loving that square that you can draw to bring up a window on top of an app.
I can't wait for my contract to expire. The Note 3 will be mine!
Shut up and take my money Samsung.

haha. That watch is so rad!

Bravo!

Usually reports on Samsung phones/phablets from PhoneScoop are rough - there's usually a sarcastic comment used to describe the materials - so not having this type of "usual" critics and finding only good ones does make me feel that there's something very extraordinary on this device.

Good report BTW, I like how the information is based on how the apps feel/respond and device performance other than focusing on materials.
