I spent a lot of time researching before I personally made the purchase posted here. This phone remains nearly as powerful as the 2015 flagships, but at less than half the price. This 2013 phone is a tremendous value in 2015 for a powerful phablet. It really hits the sweet spot for price, performance, features, and quality.

Also, unlike most of the 2015 flagship phones, this one has a removable battery and a micro SD card slot. Not to mention, it has 3GB of RAM and comes with 32GB of built-in storage.

Unlocking
This is a carrier locked phone; however, AT&T unlocked it for me immediately and without hassle through their online request form [att.com].

Using On T-Mobile
This phone works on T-Mobile after unlocking. You get T-Mobile 2G and 4G/LTE data, but it lacks the radios for T-Mobile 3G. If you're not in an urban area, you may have some data coverage issues as a result.

Rooting
If you like to root your phone, the AT&T and Verizon versions of the Note 3 have locked bootloaders that makes it more complicated. It is still possible to get the phone to the latest firmware version with root and warranty intact. I'll give a high-level overview of what worked for me, but you should head on over to the XDA forums [xda-developers.com] to make sure you understand before proceeding at your own risk.


The phone comes out of the box with the NC2 firmware. Stock NC2 is your starting point.
Root using towelroot.
Use flashfire, then ODIN to get the phone to OC1 with root.
Use stock recovery to flash the OTA for OC2. Root is retained.

And for good measure, here are Amazon links to what I think are the best screen protector and the best case for this phone:

Latest OTA on this phone is from August. It's Lollipop 5.0 with the patch for the stagefright vulnerability. It comes out of the box with KitKat 4.4.2.

Unfortunately , it doesn't matter how powerful the device is. Samsung loves to stop pushing updates to their older products. I have a 2013 note 10.1 and they stopped supporting it at jellybean. Went as far as KitKat on non-us models. It's a quad core 1.4 ghz device. While I'm a big fan of rooting and cfw, I don't believe you should have to do that to keep a device like this updated.

In some ways, the Note 3 is better than the Note 4 and 5. It has microUSB 3.0 which is not only sturdier but also allows for faster charging & synchronization compared to standard 2.0. It's backwards compatible with standard microUSB plugs as well. It's also a little shorter & thinner than the Note 4 but not as slim a the Note 5 (but the 5 of course lacks removable battery & microSD).

The only drawback to the Note 3 is that it definitely is not officially getting Marshmallow 6.0 and may not even get 5.1.1.

The 3's radios are not as good as the 4 or 5, at least in my experience with the VZW variants.

Still sitting with Android 4.4 on my T-Mobile Note 4. They went as far as 5.0 with my model (non-T3 Note 4) but didn't go past that and 5.0 is full of bugs from what I hear. I'm fine with 4.4 so I'm not pissed off about it, but it will make me think long and hard about buying a Samsung phone again. Why don't more manufacturers continue to make Android phones with a physical home button like Samsung? I really don't want to waste a chunk of my screen for the Back/Home/Fast Launch buttons.

How's the battery? My Note 4 with a new battery and a restore still only lasts 16 hours.

How does this compare with the Nexus 6 that has been around the $290 range quite often? It seems that phone is newer and has better software support as well as slightly better hardware. What about things like call quality and camera?

Want T-Mobile Note 3 or 4. I have a Note 2 and love it except for bloat... extreme, unmanageable bloat. I have an app that I can't transfer to a new phone so I can't root/mod it. I want to get a new Note and use this one just for the one app but they never go on sale. :-(

I have this phone, and rooting is a pain, even after you root the locked bootloader poses many issues , The rom support because of this is pathetic, you'll find plenty of stuff not working on 5.0 like NFC related , also I dont think there's support for xposed on lollipop, id go in for it if it was tmo ..just what i know about this phone

note4 has quick charging 2.0 note3 does not. USB 3.0 makes no difference in charging speed.
