    I was going to buy the OPO because it is a very good phone for a very cheap price.
    The 64 GB version is $350. However when you add tax and shipping it becomes almost 400 dollars. Today I found out that the Note 3 goes for about 450 online.

    Which phone is the best to buy? OPO for $400, Note 3 for $450 or wait until the new flagships come out and buy them for $600? I mean if I am going to use this phone for 2 years isn't it better to spend only $50 - $150 dollars more to get the best possible value?

    What do you guys think?

    I have had the Note 3 for a few months now and can't wait to switch to something a little smaller. I previously had a Note 1, and though I like the larger screen, the phone is just a little too big for me.

    Also, I hate the Samsung Touchwiz and bloatware on the phone. Aside from that the phone is great. It runs quickly and solid all around. I am considering the OPO or Sony Xperia Z2 depending on when the OPO comes out.

    I really dislike Touchwiz so it's a no brainer. Go test out a Note 3 and if you like it buy it. it's got amazing specs, a great camera, and great battery life.

    You do get upgraded specs with the OPO due to the better processor and it is a newer phone all around, it wouldn't be wise to spend money on a year old phone regardless if it is a Note 3 or not. Better off getting a newer phone, newer specs and cheaper price, IMHO.

    No on the Note 3.. Had it for 2 days and hated it. Right now I'm using the OPPO Find 7a and love it. The width of the note 3 was just to much. I mostly handle my phone one handed and the note 3 wasn't working. The Find 7a is taller and not as wide so it works. But if your gonna wait a little just wait and see what else is coming out in few months. Theres a few coming out.

    I was about to buy a note 3 and step into the phablet world for the first time. Then i read about the OnePlus one. The more i read about it the more i loved it. Its minimalistic looks appealed to me and so did the freedom provided by cyanogenmod, which i would gladly take over the bloated touchwiz experiance any day of the week. So now i have changed my descion and am waiting to get my hands on this baby

    First off, your not gonna get a 64 GB Note 3 for $400 dollars, secondly if you like Smausng bloatware and Touchwiz, you already know the answer, finally if you actually want a device and customer support by a team that actually listens and cares about their consumer, then and only then, there is only but ONE, the "Oneplus One"

    OK you won't see this until you own a Note 3 but just like the original Note the GPS is inconsistent. It loses gps lock constantly. Trust me it has been a problem with every note, including the Note 3. Very frustrating.

    I got the note 3 on day 1 launch and love the phone but absolutely hate touch wiz. I have always been a big fan of CyanogenMod but never wanted to root my phone to get it. So this one plus one is the best of both worlds. Hope to get a invite so I can get the 64gb model n sell this note 3.

    An older note for that price, yes. A note 3 certainly not even close.

    Brand new Note 3 for $450? Sounds too good to be true...it probably is.
