Negative. I desire the expansion of storage since I have a lot of music and use my phone's as an MP3 player as well. Plus, I was planning on getting the Note 4 but with the way all of this bootloader garbage is going, that might change. I'm so close to ditching all of this locked-up B.S. It's very old.

I've been having nothing but problems with my Note 3... Since day 1 it would make my caller's voice echo when not on speaker phone. Got that fixed and now I'm running into more issues. I've had my replacement for a little less than 2 weeks now and my data just randomly drops. Shows no signal but still can make calls. After the 4.2.2 update my screen was unresponsive. I had to pull the battery. And the list goes on and on.

If it wasn't an invite system I'd sell this Note in a heartbeat and buy the OnePlus One. It's sad because I loved my Note 2 and had zero issues with it. This one just seems to be nothing but problems.... Maybe because I've always had a black phone, this is my first white one. They say once you go black you never go back

The average person won't be able to buy the phone for about two months.
Also, keep in mind some other things.

1) No HDMI output capability
2) No MicroSD card
3) No removable battery
4) No APT-X Bluetooth Codec
5) LCD panel won't be able to get as dim as Note 3
6) New company, new design, new/rushed production
7) Taller phone with .2" smaller screen
8) No IR remote capability

With that said, the factory supported CyanogenMOD & unlocked bootloader is to me, a HUGE deal.
And the 64GB version (at $349) negates my need for MicroSD.
The only thing I'd really, really miss after that would be the removable battery.
If the phone were available today, I'd have already bought one.
Whether it would replace my Note 3 is a big question mark.

Let's all hope this phone takes off like crazy. If it does, then maybe Samsung & AT&T will rethink their locked bootloader thing. Or at least, offer a developers edition that you don't have to pay full retail up-front for, like you do with the VZW phones.
