    I own both. I'll be keeping the Note 3!

    And watch how OP scythe through this thread:


    deleting posts that challenge them, because they know that the yellow band issue is potentially death to them, and they'd rather censor people than deal with it!

    Majority of people in this thread have never used a Note 3 and do not own a note 3 at all. They're just riding OPO's cock at the moment so they are a tad biased and really on something.

    If you have used both.... it would be pretty obvious that Note 3 is still the better choice. Infact... ask most any Note3 and OPO owner.

    Make sure you come back and tell these people. Because you're in a rude awakening with the OPO lol.

    I would get 1+1. Solely 'cause after owning one Samsung phone. I vowed never to get Samsung again. :p

    Respect your choice, but Samsung has great hardware, great Customer service & RMA (Compared to...)

    Alex, why do you need 5 reasons, all you need is one, because it's the one. 5 reasons would confuse you more, stick with the one.

    If I was not able to buy a 1+1, I'd just wait and get another iPhone. 1+1 is the only Android phone I ever considered to be worthy of replacing my 5. And if Apple went bankrupt or stopped making iPhones for some reason, I'd turn my attention to either HTC or Motorola. :)

    Or maybe LG... but I've had one of their phones too and vowed never to get an LG again either. Samsung and LG were the sh*ttiest phones I had but I will take your word for it. ;)

    I do not have a reason. I waited patiently and got it. So if you want to wait some more time ok if not buy Note 3. :p

    Thanks all for your comments; here is my update: I was lucky enough to get an invite from another kind NY geek, and I am using the OPO as my daily driver for a couple of weeks. I am very happy so far, and have already tried a few things to make it even better (wireless charging at home and in the car; Bluetooth audio/calling in the car, etc.) and use it as a productive tool (BT keyboard/mouse, office applications, MS OneNote, Miracasting to PC display and TV, etc.).
    I already have my answer to the topic of this post: OPO (with some minor adds on) is better than Note 3 (and, possibly, Note 4) as a productive tool. The key solution was to find good enough yet affordable stylus that works with OPO, and the software that allows to do handwritten input (including OCR) to ANY Android package (emails, notes, office, etc.). I have tried a few things, and found both. The advantages vs. Note3/4 are not just price, but the versatility, interface, and freedom to do what you want/need. I will follow up with details in a special post.
