Of all the Android devices that have been released over the past few months, only one stands out enough to make me consider it. The Galaxy Note 3 with its ridiculous dimensions and silly fake leather backing is a phone that stirs memories for me, back to a time when a stylus was normal and when carrying something as large as a Psion 5MX was not an inconvenience.
I admit to having my curiosity raised by the workings of the S-pen, the huge battery, software such as Scrapbook and many other features, and so it came to pass that I ended up with a Note 3. This is not a review device, it was purchased outright with a 64GB microSD card (admittedly mainly for a freelance project) and so I have as much time as I need to play with it and understand if something like this can have a positive impact on my life.
I have theory. The Galaxy S4 and S5 were too big for me so the Note 3 seems a logical choice. They are both phones that are too big, but maybe a phone that is more than a phone (phablet, phone tablet or whatever name you want to call these things) will make more sense and not feel too big. Does that make sense? No, not at all, but that's my theory and I'm sticking with it.
Anyway, I should have one in my hand by the time you read this and look forward to documenting my thoughts next week.
Update: it has arrived and your advice would be useful. What's the best tool to transfer iPhone SMS to the Note 3? I have an iMac and Samsung SmartSync is not working at all for this.
