    I am not a Note 3 owner but I have always loved the big screen size that the Note has had. Never liked Samsung though. The Note 4 is very tempting though. Confused between the Note 4 and the Xperia Z3 for my next phone upgrade. Love the Z3 because of the 4k camera. Have a 4k TV and still haven't seen a 4k video yet! Lol. Could buy that phone just for that alone
    Doesn't the Note 3 have 4k video recording? lol

    Exactly, along with any other phone released in the past year with S800 or better, if I'm not mistaken. I think Samsung is adding the 1440p recording option, but 2160p has always been there.

    Sounds more like a carrier issue than a phone issue.
    I don't know about that. I have a 10-year-old Motorola V60i flip phone on one of my basic lines. It has TEN TIMES better call quality and reception than any of my current Verizon smartphones(Galaxy S5, Note 3, HTC One M8, Moto X) These old "vintage" phone work even in remote areas of Upstate New York. I wonder if it's because the V60i has an external antenna. What's more, when I connect the V60i to the car's hardwired kit with 5-watt booster and outside antenna, the reception goes from great to ridiculously-excellent. Unfortunately, the V60i is only for voice... no data.

    in rural areas, when my Galaxy Note 3 shows 1 or no bars, my V60i(connected to 5-watt booster) can get all 5 bars. (which is why I'm really afraid when the day comes when Verizon turns off CDMA)

    my hardwired kit is like this one, except I increased the power from 3 watts to 5 watts:

    Since paying full price, I would rather get a Note 3 new for $500 and wait until next year for the 810 or other 64bit device. The 805 is the same family as the nearly two year old S600. Same 28nm fabrication. Ditto for the Note 3 but seems a better overall but if $500.

    I agree. This is the first time I've EVER had any trouble with ANY of my Verizon phones, and since switching from Blackberry, I've always had Samsung phones. But sometimes this Note 3 makes me want to throw it out the window!!

    why not ask Verizon to replace the phone which should still be under warranty? skip to a level 2 tech support and they should swap out the phone within 2 days.

    I did already and they were very happy to swap it out. It helped for a little while, but after a few weeks, the same thing started happening. I even then did a reset of my phone, thinking maybe something I installed was screwing with it. Nope...same thing!

    Your v60i still works?!!! I had a v60i issued by my job that barely lasted two years. I had a v60c for my personal phone that was absolutely horrible, especially in terms of reception. That one lasted only one year.

    To answer the OP's question, I will upgrade from a Note 3 to a Note 4, but I just have to add the Note Edge when it comes out later.

    I bought the Note3 outright only recently.

    My current monthly PAYG expenditure is really small so signing up to a contract to get the 4 isn't really worth it to me.

    Would like the image stabilization and better S pen interface though.

    Anyone has a specific release date for the Note 4. Can't believe apple and the iPhone 6 will be releasing theirs before the note 4.

    It's sad because Samsung announced the note 4 before apple announced the iPhone 6, so got an early jump, but pre-orders for the iPhone 6 starts Friday 9/12/14

    Why? The timing is very similar to the 2012 and 2013 release schedules for both companies.
