    Lol. For me it's the other way around. Have school during the week so I use it for maybe a max of 2 hours. Weekends I use it for 3-4.

    Yeah tomorrow I'll go to work with a full battery and screenshot it later in the afternoon. It gets rocked.. I use lots of data.. Streaming movies.. And have 2-3 people tethered to me.. It gets owned during work :P.

    I tell everyone who asks me if i like the phone the same thing.

    If you can handle the size, in hand and in your pocket this is the best phone you can buy. Period.

    If its too big then this is not the category you should be considering phones in. Move over to an S4 or One.

    I was worried the phone would be too big to handle, but after a week i was used to it. No regrets here.

    Went from a Note2 to S4....constantly swapping between the 2 as I found the S4 too small for all its grandness. Finally decided to sell my S4 and trade N2 up to the N3...best decision I ever made (apart from the one deciding to leave iOS behind)

    The Note 3 is a nice phone. HOWEVER, its the phone that made me start keeping two phones (and two lines). For all its sliqness, sometimes I wanted something different...smaller...simpler.

    I get that, actually, as much as I lust for this screen size. For me, though, I don't actually use my phones that much as a phone. (!) MP3 player, ebook reader, video player, review documents, internet browsing....screen real estate is good.

    I used to be an S series user (EPIC 4G and S3) and carried a 10 inch tablet. For me, the whole point of switching to the Note series was to consolidate to one device. I loved the convenience of a tablet (much better than lugging my laptop or carrying a clipboard and paper), but I was afraid to lay it down anyway for fear of damage or theft (I ended up selling it to someone who dropped broke it a week later...lol). The Note was a tablet I could just drop in my pocket and was the phone I was carrying anyway.

    For one handed use yes the s4 wins hands down. I bought the note for the specs and i figured I would get used to the size and I have. I also got it to prevent one handed use. I was a habitual text and drive person. This phone is my therapy for not doing it. Lol

    In certain cases I do wish it were one hand friendly but then I see people already seeing lag in the sgs4 and also complain about the screen brightness in the daylight and that makes me happy of my decision.

    I used to think the s4 was huge. Now it looks tiny to me lol

    I own them both as well as the S3 and the Note 3 is by far my favorite. You can use it one handed if you choose as it has that option as mentioned above. The S pen is a great feature that I use all the time. But most importantly, with either phone you mentioned, there is so much more you can have and do with them over an iPhone. So for me the Note 3 is superior to the S4.

    with the new back and sides of the N3 it is much easier to hold lower down which kinda lets you hold it one handed. And l wrote this post whilst on the train using the stylus! Awesome handwriting recognition. Best phone ever, period.

    True but at some point a line has to be drawn. By that logic in 2 years people will be carrying around a 8 plus inch smartphone.
    My 3g Note 10.1 is an awesome phone. I often use it as a phone just because of the deal with a carrier's sim - it always gets a laugh if I hold it against my ear! Absolutely loving my new Note 3 though, can't put it down.

    I love having multiple phones & tablets as I can run a different setup on each. One launcher on one, a different ROM and launcher on another, a different launcher and ROM on another. All in good fun.

    The S4 is completely outclassed by the Note 3, so no not really. I personally bought the Note 3 to be a 2-in-1 device, and it's exceeded my expectations. It's not all that convenient to use one handed, but I didn't want a one handed device so it doesn't bother me at all. The thing that completely seals the deal for me is that I have it on the $30 T-Mobile 5GB data/Unlimited messaging/100 minute plan. Couldn't be any happier.

    I went from the s4 to the Note3. Have not sold the s4 back yet and picked it up. Felt way too small. depends on what you do with the phone though. I didn't use the s4 for reading books or watching movies but I use the note3 for both sometimes.

    I have somewhat small hands, but Android offers so many options to make one hand operation a breeze. Install Nova launcher pro and set up gestures, both on the desktop as well as in the dock. Switchr makes switching apps a joy and terribly convenient. Finally, a decent keyboard like SwiftKey does support several modes, like compact, which added to flow makes typing with one hand's thumb amazingly easy.

    Don't give up, try some and other options and you will get the benefits of the amazing screen and operation as easy, or more, than the iPhone's.

    The Note will ruin anything lol. Not just iPhones. Used one a few weeks ago at Best Buy and my S4 felt tiny afterwards
    I'm actually thinking about going smaller though

    I went to the store today and checked out an S4 again. Yes...Even the S4 deemed small now. I think I will keep the Note 3 after all. Today was the end of my 14 day period with At&t. I think part of my problem was that I had a cheap case on it that I got from eBay. The case added too much bulk. I want to get a good quality bumper case so that I can reduce bulk. The phone is surprisingly thin and more manageable without the crappy case I bought.
