Awhile ago I wrote a blog post gushing about the Samsung Galaxy S3. I’d been growing ever-more-jealous of my coworker’s Galaxy Note 3, and when T-mobile hooked me up with another 18 month upgrade I jumped at the chance to upgrade to a phablet.
It was the correct decision. I’d write a lot more about this bit of gear, except Glen Tickle (@glentickle) at Geekosystem already wrote a review of the Note 3 that said every single thing I wanted to say. In particular, I agree with 3 points Glen makes:
- I have gotten a lot of comments about how huge this phone is, though nearly anyone who watches me use it for any decent period of time gets covetous.
- Dress pants are the best pants.
- The phone is incredibly usable, and thank the gods I didn’t have to give mine back like Glen did, because I’m never going back to a regular sized phone.
For completeness, a brief couple of amusing comments from Knightmare and I on the size of the phone on IRC:
