Depending on what you are using your phone for that is why some like iPhone while others like Note 3. I personally like the Note 3 since the performance and the features on the phone are way better than iPhone. Others will argue with me but as we all know everyone has different taste for things.
try to compare iphone vs note 3 LTE (9005)- LTE is better..
Why the hell all reviews favors iPhones, why, why. This note 3 outranked iPhone in all areas but yet they say they can't reach a conclusion, but when iPhone outranked others, they just write is jolly. Seems to me apple is paying these review website to not say anything bad against the iPhone.
used and tested both phones iphone is elegant but note 3 with a massive feature list is giant i preferred. And bought...
