"Awesome"

To put the Note 3 in one word in awesome . This phone doesn't break a sweat at anything I throw at it and stuttering , while occasionally happens , is easily forgiven due to the full HD display , the screen is gorgeous , watching videos a real pleasure .The screen was a little big at first glance but I got used to it , the textured back really feels nice and is not 'tacky' as some people call it , it indeed gives a premium feel , Multi-tasking abilities and awesome Camera and video-taking software makes this a real beast . Only disappointments are low-light photography , the phone takes less than stellar photos here , Battery life while still great was not as good as the Note 2 , but still forgivable ( The Note 2 has 720p display ) , Touchwiz which looks great and adds a pleathora of cool features , bogs the phone down , its really painful to see the phone stutter even with a powerful S800 processor , lagging , albeit occasionally , on the Note 3 . These features are great for ads but really unneccessary for real-world use , features like Smart-scroll and Smart-pause were buggy and didn't always work .
In conclusion , the Note 3 is a beast and well-worth an upgrade from any phone that you are thinking of letting go , the gripes aren't really that huge and I can live with them , every piece of tech has its downsides , so the Note 3 definitely will be able to last as a great premium offering from Samsung .
