jacesk's review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (GSM)

original version, submitted Oct 31, 2013, 1:42 PM:

My point of view....

Ok, Let me start by saying I'm a small business owner and use my phone for almost everything and and on it a ridiculous amount of the day.

I'm not going to get into the specs of the phone,that can be researched anywhere, I prefer to enlighten some on the actual usability and practicality of this thing.

I started with blackberry and loved and was quite faithful to RIM and swore I could never use another. That was a 10 yr relationship and ended with me going into a Apple store and "trying" out the iPhone4 when first released...then to the iphone4s and swore by it too. I always knew it lacked a fee things but just dealt with it because I was not going back to BB nor did I even THINK of using Android, I heard horrible things about the phones.

I heard that this Note 3 was coming out and it was supposed to be the best of the best....I had an upgrade in my back pocket and sat on it until the release of the N3 I had to check it out. It's been 3 weeks and I have to say that this phone/phablet is hands down the best device that I have used in all my 20 yrs of owning phones! Let me start with battery life, I can't kill the thing I have to literally play a YouTube video on full brightness just to drain it so I can give it a fresh charge...and that's on day 2 which is insane to me. Screen is breathtaking, speed is phenomenal, multitasking can be done on the same screen with the split screen option (beaut) there is absolutely 0 lag on this thing it's smooth as silk! I used to jailbreak my iPhone just to get some of the mannerisms that come stock on this beast! Look I'm running out of space to type here but take my word for it, if you don't mind having a larger than usual phone in hand get this thing! Don't give it a 2nd thought it's worth every penny and then some! I still have my ip4s and go back to it on occasion if I need info that I forgot to transfer and the screen and size of that is a utter joke to me..I'm 100% sold on Android and going to keep using Notes.
