Special edition Galaxy Note 3 podcast today at 4PM ET

After last night's LG G2 podcast, we're switching things up a bit for our regular Friday podcast, and this week it's going to be all about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I've got the European Galaxy Note 3 in-hand, and I'll be joined by Jerry and Andrew for an hour of Note 3 discussions, questions and opinions.

We'll kick things off today, Friday, Sept. 27, at the usual time of 4PM EDT — that's 1PM PDT or 9PM BST. We'll be talking all about the hardware, software, build quality, that crazy 4K video camera and the recent houpla over region-locking. But we need your questions, too! And we'll be doing a live Q&A through Google+ as the podcast goes out, but if you want to email your Note 3 questions in, then is the place to send 'em.

And if you've not seen it already, our video walkthrough of the Galaxy Note 3 is a great place to get started. We'll see you later today for the podcast!

  • Plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note product line of devices period. October 2nd couldn't come fast enough. Posted from my Galaxy Note 2 via Android Central App.
  • Hardly. If there are region locks then it is totally useless to everyone who travels regularly or even irregularly and on a budget that needs a phone.
  • They are not Posted via the Amazing Android Central App on my Nexus 10
  • edit: wrong reply
  • Squiddy20 Don't bother replying you ain't buying anyway. This handset is beyond your reach. Posted from my Galaxy Note 2 via Android Central App.
  • What a joke of a reply. Beyond my reach? How the heck would you know? You don't even know my real name, let alone my monetary standing. The reason I'm not buying this thing is because I don't have a need (or want) for something so obscenely large. If I want a large screened device, I have my laptop, which is almost as portable. What a retard.
  • Please my friend mark down a easy 15 to 20 million for the Note 3. No Htc, Lg, Sony, Motorola, or Nexus device will ever sell in that ballpark. Posted from my Galaxy Note 2 via Android Central App.
  • True. Funny how Sammy is becoming the Apple of Android though. Quality/specs is what I'm after, not quantity. LG G2 blows away the S4 on that one. Note 3 is too big for me.
  • Please. In two months Samsung sold only 20 million S4's, and then a few months later, word got around that Samsung was basically in a panic mode because S4 sales suddenly dropped.
    Also, Apple sold 9 million iPhones in the first 3 days. Samsung won't ever be able to top that.
  • In all fairness, apple sells one phone (well, two now). Android sells hundreds. Posted via the Android Central App on my Note 2
  • Special edition Galaxy Note 3? Posted via Galaxy SkyRocket running Android 4.3
  • The podcast is special not the phone... Posted via the Amazing Android Central App on my Nexus 10
  • Pretty comical Posted from my Galaxy Note 2 via Android Central App.
  • Says the same guy who seriously told me rooting was for "2plus year old devices" and then a few months later claimed to be "looking into" rooting his Galaxy Nexus for... 2 whole months... Pretty comical (and hypocritical) indeed.
  • As much as I was looking forward to the Note 3 to replace my OG Note, I may just wait a little longer and get the Nexus 5. Posted via the Amazing Android Central App on my Nexus 10
  • If the nexus 5 ever Came to Verizon I would get that in a heartbeat but until then HTC one for me Posted via Android Central App
  • Argh...... Another podcast while I'm at work. Oh well. I look forward to listening after I get out of work tonight. I would really like a good comparison between the N2 and the N3. A lot of us have the N2 and want to know the differences between them. I know the hardware is amazing but I'm talking about user experience. Cant wait to listen. Posted via Android Central App
  • I read that the Verizon version has a low dB rating based on FCC filings, that it is 10db lower than the galaxy s4. Is this something I should be worried about, as I an upgrading from a Verizon galaxy s3 primarily because I have very sporadic data issues at my work near the NYSE on wall street. I was hoping AWS would help alleviate the issues in the very foreseeable future, but this supposed weak antenna is giving me doubts.
  • I'm curious about this also. Posted via Android Central App
  • Why the hell does it cost so much more? Posted via Android Central App
  • My situation: 1. I've never used Android - always iOS (iPhone 4 is my phone)
    2. I want a bigger screen and like the stylus option in the Note 3 Questions: 1. What is likely to annoy me about Andriod coming from iOS? More of a generic question
    2. How does the Note 3 feel in your front pocket (dress pants)? Can you sit down without it jabbing you in the gut?
    3. What methods do people use to carry their Note 3 due to the size?
    3. Is the S-pen that hard to remove? I keep seeing reference to that.
    4. Can any of the Samsung or ATT software be removed if I want?
  • 1. Maybe the wait for updates. 2. I work at a bank and wear dress pants and its not that bad. I can sit down with it, walk around without a problem. 3. I have always carried the note 2 in my pocket, of course i dont wear skinny jeans, but i have got used to putting it in my back pocket, 3. is s-pen is not hard to remove, ive never had a problem in that part. 5. yes it can by rooting,
