Came from LG G2
My G2, (which I loved) somehow wound up with a broken screen. I dont know how honestly, but needless to say I found myself utilizing the asurion insurance I pay monthly for.
Long story short, asurion did not have a G2 in stock. Since I am in emergency services (ff emt) and need a phone at all times they agreed to send me a note 3.
I just wanted to post my initial thoughts and impressions.
This phone physically has a nicer feel to it. My G2 would get for lack of a better word, slimy.
The display on the G2 definitely had better whites. They look slightly dingier on my note by comparison. The colors and black levels are more vivid on the note. Its too close to tell which I prefer and both are awesome.
Not having knock on stinks, but im getting used to it. Also the back button being on the right side of the home button is pretty annoying. Getting used to it though.
Headphone volume is quite a bit louder on the note, as well as the notes speaker.
Performance real world is very similar. No lag on either device.
The TouchWiz ui seems more refined than the LG skin. Definitely with a focus on being productive. S pen is truly awesome, and I use it all the time.
The G2 took better pics, but the note snaps them faster. The video is better on the G2 for me. 60 fps @ 1080 with the ois was awesome. Vids of my kids came out fantastic.
So far battery life for me is better on the note. Very good on both phones, but its just hard to kill the notes battery.
I think as time goes on, and as I get used to this device more it will grow on me. It already is, and in my short time i prefer it already.
