    So I've had my note 3 for about 2 months, and of course I still get the typical "Wow, your phone is so huge!" multiple times a day. However, recently I've been getting more questions such as "Why do you even need a phone that big??" etc etc. I'm sure you all have been there. I've tried all approaches like it's better for watching videos, taking notes, consuming Internet content, using multi-window, all that. Of course all I get back is "Why don't you just get a tablet?" Because a tablet doesn't fit in my pocket... I need help from you guys, what are some more benefits of the big screen that I haven't mentioned? I need to finally silence my friends.

    Running two app windows is so much easier with this big, beautiful HD screen. :-)

    My daughter has the Note 3, but she carries it in her purse. It's a little big for my shirt pocket, but I wouldn't mind having one if it were easier to carry in my pocket.

    Yeah, people say that to me all the time at work when I pull out my phone. I just show them a video or Web browser and they're in awe.

    Or just say nothing. You do not have to defend your purchase of the device. After a while your friends will get the hint and quit asking these questions.

    Of all my arguments, the split window impresses everyone the most.

    Or maybe modify the Crocodile Dundee line, with faux Australian accent (unless you happen to be Australian, in which case it's real) - Pointing at the other guy's phone, say "That's not a phone." Pull the Note 3 out and say, "THAT's a phone."

    "Why do you even need a phone that big??". I get that a lot as well since getting the first note ( have had all 3). My response is, it's not a phone! It's the wrong comparison. It's a mini tablet I can use to make calls. People should be saying your tablet is very small. The phone calling is one of the functions I use the least on my Notes, but I use the 3 / 4G data function that tablets don't normally have, a lot. So I say to people, if all they use the device for is as a phone, then smaller is the right size. If they want to have a pocketabe device for media consumption, decent web-surfing and gaming, then the Notes are the right size. Simple.

    And no I don't look an ***** holding such a big device up to my head to make calls, as it is normally in my pocket and I take the calls on my blue tooth or wired headset. Why do I need to hold a device as large as even an Iphone, up to my head for an extended period of time. That is just silly.

    It's not a small tablet, it's a big phone

    Thanks for the responses guys. Just to clarify, my friends just all have iPhone's and refuse to switch to any other phone. I'm not actually angry that they ask all these questions, it's just a little playful competition.

    Can you make a phone call from a tablet?

    I would just respond with baby bear. Regular sized phones are too small (mama bear) and tablets, which can't make phone calls anyhow, are too big (daddy bear). The GNote3 is just right (baby bear).

    A year ago the Note 2 seemed gargantuan. Now, in a tech filled world where the norm is a five inch screen, the Note 3 is not even noticeably that large. Its more rectangular and svelte appearance minimize it somewhat.

    That's so funny. I get the total opposite. "Is that a Note 3?" "Wow, beautiful phone!" "I wished I had gotten the Note instead of this iPhone."

    Just a couple creative responses to iphones...

    Awww... that's a cute little phone!

    How long until it grows to a full size phone?

    Does it come with reading glasses?

    Have fun!

    One of my responses is, I can actually see my phone and save my eyes. I also have a wallet case for mine which has credit cards in one side and the phone on the other side. Now all I get is that is an awesome wallet.

    Right after I got my note I had a server at a restaurant go holy crap that is a big phone and I said, yes yes it is, but I can see what is on my screen.

    I never get people asking me why do I need a phone that big. I get people asking me if it's a tablet and when I say it's a phone they are amazed. Honestly, if somebody asked me "why do you need a phone that big" i would reply "why do you care how big my phone is?" lol

    THE BEAST,,NOTE 3. SIZE IS EVERYTHING!!!

    my reply is simple really I just say "oh this really isnt that big to me" and then i pull my Nexus 7 out of my other pocket ( I work in black dress pants that have big pockets). They usually just look at me like I'm crazy. I love that look.

    Big??? The Note 3 is TINY!
    Note 3 Size Justification - need backup!-motorolabagphone11.jpg

    When they ask, play a video, then do something with the dual screen... then they next ask why not just get a tablet, call them. And while they're trying to figure out why you called them surf the web. If they haven't figured it out by then just pat them on the head like you would a small child, and slowly explain to them that you couldn't do that on their cute little iphones nor on a tablet. Make sure to use small words to rub it in more. Now only do this if they are your friends and you know they have a sense of humor and won't get all **** hurt about it!
