    I was able to pick up the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 yesterday and I absolutely love this device! The improvements that I noticed was the screen visibility / viewing while outside, S Pen functions, call volume / clarity seemed a bit louder / clearer as well as the fluidity of the phone and how it feels in hand. The phone is amazingly fast and definitely fun to use!

    I put together this short video to show what comes in the box, some phone highlights as well as my first impressions!

    What tips, tricks, and features do you like about the device?

    Great video!

    The usb has two ports because it's usb 3.0. Think the Note 3 is the first phone to use usb 3.0.

    The call speaker seems much better than my S4. Actually had to turn the volume down a bit. This device has been great so far, still tinkering.

    After all of My whining about the camera and speakers, I ended up picking up the N3 because the package is so tight light and fast.

    Literally the only thing reported missing is KNOX. Everything else is there. Pretty in-depth thread over on XDA about it.

    only thing i have noticed is the safety assistance feature. They left blocking mode in this time around. You know Verizon they just can't leave things alone lol.

    Why did they leave out the knox app? You can still activate Knox in the security administrators, so maybe they are looking at bringing it back in the next update? Nothing noted from Verizon as they were leaving this application out, from what I've read.
