I have the Note 3. I use it for so many things.

Many apps, use it for reading often. Email, facebook, etc.

Very hard to believe so much in such a small package.

I have a book style cover on mine, did you do that or go ruggedized?

To be fair, you're comparing the last model of iPhone to the newest Note. You're comparing apples and oranges...

My wife has the ipuke 6plus, and thoughts remain the same ;)
A little humor for you all. :D:D



BTW, the Samsungs are nice - but I love using my Nexus 4 (and my wife has a Nexus 5). I enjoy them for the "vanilla" android/pure android experience. Plus they are fun to tweak/mess around with. :)

The Nexus uses WIN doesn't it? Instead of Android? I seem to remember having issues with them when the HST app is used.

No the nexus uses android as it is a google device and google puts the latest android software on the nexus first (since it is a "pure" android experience, no skins or tweaks like other android devices - - unless one is to buy google play edition devices offered at https://play.google.com/store/devices ). Other phones/tablets have to wait until the respective manufacturer releases the update for the new versions of android. I'm currently running 4.4.4 kitkat and android 5 (lollipop) is going to start being available November 3. If I get impatient waiting for the OTA update, then I'll just download it from google and do a quick install.

Now if someone is a big ubuntu fan, there is a version of ubuntu that will work on the nexus devices. Info on it is here http://developer.ubuntu.com/start/ubuntu-for-devices/installing-ubuntu-for-devices/ and there are also directions online for doing a dual boot of both android and ubuntu. :)

For info on the latest nexus devices here is a quick link to the nexus 6 https://www.google.com/nexus/6/ and there are links there to the nexus 9 and nexus 5 as well.

I have one. love it. I have a cover and believe it or not it took only 8 days for my kids to smash the screen. I now have shards of glass in my fingers. Dh was attempting to give me a gift cause I have been dealing with my broken I pod for 3 years. sigh. I get nothing nice.

I have an original Note and love it. My eyes bugged out when I saw the clarity of display which was unique a few years ago. Since I do a LOT of reading on my phone, I like the slightly wider screen better than the taller but narrower later models. I read books and newspapers easily on my phone, am able to check facts on wikipedia etc without eyestrain, and it takes great pictures. Enjoy your new gadget!

I found out my neighbors daughter (who is my age) has a note 4. I must say, it is a light phone and the screen seems to be quite nice. She was singing the note 4's praises and saying how happy she is with it.
