    1. It's very light. For such a big device it feels so light in the hand.
    2. The battery life is VERY STRONG.
    3. I'm surprised how fast the battery charge just using the regular USB 2.0.
    4. It's very clean and sexy.
    5. There is ALOT of bloatware. I'd say half is useful and half isn't.

    Overall, VERY HAPPY with my decision.

    I'm in South Korea. I'd love to upload pictures, but the Note 3 is my only way to take pictures.
    Use a mirror! What color do you have? How does the back feel?

    Some of that may be due to your carrier, but I think we would be interested if you could list the items you consider
    to be bloatware as you see them. And if those items can be uninstalled from the phone as you go along.
    And how much free space and memory you have now, before trying to tweak more performance out of it.

    Thank you. And I hope you are enjoying it.

    The reason I say the battery is strong is because ive been using the phone ALL DAY and I still havent recharged it. Compared to my Nexus 7 this thing is very strong.

    But if you just got today of course you haven't had to.. It's 12:38 PM EST and earlier as you go west.

    I haven't charged my phone since last night and it's still going...

    My point being is I just want people to be able to get real world battery results once people use it for at least a day or 2 to get real results. A few hours.. You can't tell anything really.

    How much of the bloat ware is the carrier's and how much of it is Samsung's?

    Unless you read he is in KOREA on the other side of the international date line which means it's 1:38AM Thursday the 26th there by your time stamp, so yes he had it all day the 25th.

    Purchased a new Note 3. Seems that the power drains 50% in 3 hours. I have look at the applications and IndexService is using 50% at all time. Many times, the phone stopped and pop up the IndexService not responding.

    Anyone can help?

    I have not seen anyone comment on the most overlooked aspect of this device. How does the pr0n look on 1080p 5.7" display? If they get any bigger I may get an inferiority complex.

    You might want to try returning it to factory state before you get too far into installing your stuff on it. Some people make it a habit to right away do a factory restore as soon as they get a new phone to insure a clean install.

    Whaat? Why? Unless there is a bug in the manufacturer's process, shouldn't the reset bring it to the exactly same situation as it was when you powered it in order to do the reset?

    Don't ask me, I never do that but people swear by it. It might help in his case since something seems wrong.

    About how long does it take to charge the battery on the Note3 ? I'm really curious since the addition of USB 3.0 ..
    Data transfer speeds should be blazin !

    I have the exact same issue - too bad there are no solutions here, and googling it brings up nothing either. brand new phone.
    what is this IndexService and how can you make it stop killing the battery and causing problems??

    It depends how one feels about TOO MUCH DETAIL. There's some things you just don't need to see in 1080P.

    I don't even want to think about it when 4k becomes available.

    LOL
