Hi
I am an old Note 2 user, but currently on the Blackberry Q10. I am starting to miss a bigger screen and IR blaster so I am now looking at the note 3 and note 3 Neo.

The prices in my country are quite similar for both, only about a 15 usd difference, so that is not an issue:

Is the Neo better when it comes to batterylife? I like the fact that it has what seems to be more of a hybrid cpu with 4 slow cores and 2 fast ones.
Also, does the neo run less hot?

I do not game much, so gaming preformance is not that important to me. However I do multitask a lot, using remote desktop on my phone while wrting messages og wathing a youtube video.

How big SD card does the Neo support? I am often traveling and like to have some series or movies handy.

For 15 USD diff. Go for note 3. The 3gb ram will future proof your device.

$15 difference? That's a no-brainer. Go get the Note 3

If you are tight on budget, wait a little longer and grab Neo 3. It will definitely go cheaper as in rest of the parts of the world, it's falling every day.

Go for note 3
In India note 3 neo is only 470 USD whereas Note 3 is more than 700 USD. So prices will fall for sure in your country too.
The screen and camera are the deal breaker for note 3 neo. It will be not much of an improvement from note 2.

I think its a TAD better on the big brother. Else the sensor seems to be the same. Just the MPs are lower. I compared the image quality of S4, N3 Neo and N3... They were ALMOST same, except for the size of the image (for cropping etc). Even Neo 3 has a wide angle sensor.. captures more view than S4 and N3.

As price isn't a factor you can blindly pick up the Note 3 and Neo variant supports max of 64 GB SD card whereas Note 3 supports maximum of 128GB. Neo doesn't run hot but I've heard Note 3 exynos variant with Octa core processor does run a little hot .

At my region there's a huge price difference and hence I picked this one .
