"Undeniably the best phone out there right now"

I'm super happy with this phone, the happiest I've ever been with a phone in fact. If compared to any other device on the market it has the best battery life of them in most cases by far (plus the battery is removable). On top of this it charges faster than most of the competitor devices out there. It is a physically gorgeous device. Has as much built in memory 32 GB as virtually all the competitors with the added benefit of expandable storage. It is a super fast and fluid device. The screen is gorgeous (easily on par with virtually all the other screens on the market and better than most). The size might be slightly large for some people but you benefit from the great screen size while being at the upper limit of what's handlable. The device is also nice and light, which is great (lighter than the last 2 note devices). It has one of the best video cameras on the market able to take 4K video and 1080p video @ 60 FPS with fantastic image at least in proper lighting. The daylight camera is certainly excellent, though the low light camera leaves a lot to be desired. The speaker are great being one of the loudest devices on the market.

It's one of the only devices running Android 4.3, the Samsung value adds are significant whether or not a person likes Touchwiz it definitely gives a lot more capabilities to the phone and is better designed than most alternatives. For example, a lot of the music players don't allow navigation by folder, Samsung's does. HTC Sense, LG's UI, etc. don't allow you to rotate through the home screens like a carousel while on Samsung you can. Being able to adjust phone settings (wifi, etc.) is more convenient on Samsung than any other device with all the options directly in the notification shade. The multi-tasking on Samsung is second to none especially with the S-Pen. The media streaming eco-system on Samsung is only rivaled by Apple and beats everyone else by far. The S-pen gives it a unique advantage and flexibility not available on other competitor devices.

Bottom line there really isn't any competition, the only reason not to go with this device would be if you really needed the low light photo taking capability, if you found the screen too large to be manageable, or you were deeply invested in the Apple eco-system (then of course the iPhone 5S is the best), or if you needed a much cheaper off contract phone (then of course the Nexus 5 is the best). As a general rule though and in the aggregate the Note 3 is far and away the clear winner amongst current smartphones.
