Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer present in this device. It's a constant struggle with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo to balance my need for a large screen and keyboard that accommodate my large fingers, against the need for a small size and low weight device that would enhance mobility. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I like typing on the large keypad of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo but the screen overall is too big to carry around. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, however good the other features might be. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Gaming or reading on the larger-than-life 5.5 inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is really exciting as the graphics seem so real and the text so lucid. Be it reading or gaming, my display is continuously powered on. The AMOLED display, however offers an awesome viewing experience and even saves up on battery. Reading or gaming on a display so sharp and crisp, is really a pleasure. Gaming on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo with 1.7, 1.3 GHz is decently fluid, not that exciting though; for the long haul however, I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming. Heavy multi-tasking and graphic-intensive games seem like a cakewalk with the 2 GB RAM of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo with the 16 GB internal storage really talks to me; it understands my storage needs when it comes to my ebook and gaming collection. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurts and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5.5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. And I simply can't stop admiring the awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. Movies and videos on a large screen are the best, the screen type or resolution doesn't matter to me much. Even typing is quite easy on a large screen, although you always need both hands to operate it. Yes, 8 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. With the 16 GB internal storage I have to choose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from my phone. I hate to do that and hence don't like phones with average internal memory; a bigger storage is more of my style.
