Cons: Somewhat awkward to hold, confusing software, expensive
Awesome phone with plenty of potential. Great if you are willing to put in some time to optimize it. Software suffers from having 3 masters: Samsung, Google and wireless carrier(in my case Sprint). Everyone wants you to use their store and apps. My advice is to use Google (it is an android phone after all) and add the other bits as you need them. If you're really ambitious troll YouTube for Note 3 tips and techniques.
If you prefer phone use with one hand there are special setting to shrink and move the buttons to facilitate that. But I'd recommend a Galaxy S4 or iPhone instead.
Still love the hardware. The software or rather the battle with the software providers is getting on my nerves. For example, picture handling is totally out of control. Google started automatically downloading my pictures to my google+ account. Samsung would like to but I don't have a Samsung specific account. Dropbox has to be stopped from automatically doing this. What I really want is to download pictures to my computer where I can edit them. Simple huh? Well not in this new world. Android phones and Mac computers don't like each other. If you want to do what THEY want you to do, life is a trip down a water slide. If you want to do something else its a climb UP a water slide.
Also: car chargers are an issue for this phone. See my review for the PowerGen 4.2Amps / 20W Dual USB Car charger Designed for Apple and Android Devices
If you DON'T keep your phone in a pocket or on your belt this is a great, inexpensive case:i-Blason Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Note III N9000 Smart Phone Leather Slim Book Case Cover with Stand Feature (Black)
My only downside is that it has all the Samsung stuff pre-installed and there is no easy way to uninstall it. I wish I could have the Nexus experience on this hardware. I am moving from an open Google Nexus branded phone and the proprietary Samsung experience and it is not even comparable. The Google Nexus experience wins hands down. The Samsung hardware wins hands down. This is why the old Google Nexus S by Samsung did so well; the best of both worlds.
