Is galaxy Note 3 Really Worth 48k??

I was planning on buying the Samsung galaxy note 3 till morning until when i bumped into some websites stating the cons of the product which is the latest flagship of the korean giant!! I am now confused between three phones and for good reasons...

1. Nexus 5 : Mainly because it has an 8MP OIS camera under the hood and is the best phone and is cheaper comparing all the other flagship products and what more it has the purest form of android running it.

2. HTC ONE Max : It seems to have some interesting specs and the features looks cool!! (should i really need to wait for this phone?? )

3. LG G2 : This is looking so promising and the specs are also cool and features are acceptable... And the main thing that attracted me is the 13MP OIS camera....


Galaxy Note 3 : What i found against the note 3 is that it's camera is bad in low light and the thing that it's processor is slow comparing the other flagship as they are using the OCTA processor. I really do like the S Pen and it's features and everything... I just need to no whether i am doing the correct thing.


So what is your opinion guys???? Should i go for note 3 or any of the above? Suggestions are most welcome...

I am in the same hood, have to decide against these smartphone.
Nexus 5 is best among those. i would have selected note 3 but indian version of a note 3 is disappointing.
go for nexus 5.
best of luck :)

If you need s pen badly then you're out of choices here get the note 3 otherwise I'd recommend G2 or a more VFM nexus 5

Get the nexus 5 u won't regret it avoid Samsung my father had note 2 and 3 and he sold it ASAP (he kept the note 2 as a backup phone but never liked it) dont get iPhone either they have issues with hardware buttons
If apps aren't ur priority get a lumia 1020 its a great phone overall and till date i haven't found any issues which would make me return to android
I have 1020,820 720 and a 920 at home as our main phones despite having multiple Samsung and nexus phones at home
Otherwise nexus 5 and Lg g2 are the best in android and are worth buying(I have a nexus 4 too)

Because i thing the N9005 model with the LTE is the best buck for the money and it is also said to have better battery consumption comparing the indian version... I really fell for the sammy guys... Any suggestions on how o get the LTE??

Import one and it will be having a region lock than head on to the xD a site and check out how to break region lock thread and that's it you have a LTE note 3 but without warranty and second option is go with the Indian version but frankly speaking note 3 isn't worth it according to me.

Yes, but one thing i am disappointed about the Note 3 is that the camera is a crap one. I am confused on whether to buy this or not.... Suggestions on this?

If ghost crazy screen is what you want how about xperia ultra. That6.4 inch phablet. And yes you can import with Ishopinternational. But if any warranty problem came up so you have to send it back and get it repaired.

OP seems to be unimpressed with Note 3 camera, then Z Ultra just can't be considered as its camera is much worse than Note 3's.

Lumia 1520 seems to fit the bill nicely with its excellent camera (especially low light) but runs on WP8.

Well one max is looking good on the igyaan review. I think it will also be in the range of 50k why not wait. Or else randomuser111 has given you a good option.

One Max has a crappy camera just like the HTC One. Plus it runs S600. Not worth it at 50k at all.

Maybe for 35k it would be "OK".

EDIT: Oh well looks like its 56k

I don't think Note 3 camera is THAT bad. It's par for the course for a 2013 flagship.

Out of all the phones you listed in your first post, Note 3 has the best camera.

What phone do you own now ?
