In the market and was set to buy a S4 and then the guy shows me the Note 3 and talks about the watch. The Note 3 is huge, with otterbox, just barely in pocket. I think it's too big for a belt clip?

What is so great about the Note 3? The watch sounds cool, and I need function. For me, a smart phone is a business tool to make more money, not play angry birds.

He said the Note 3 with watch is $650 with VZ renewal

Is it that good or will I just look like James Bond.

Do you WANT to look like James Bond?

So you are getting talked into the Note 3 because of the watch? If you like the size of the Note, get it. If you like the idea of the watch, get it.
Personally I don't like either so I'd get the S4.

No I don't want to be the dork appearing to be Bond, just the oppposite. I am moving so I can just resign as new customer since my 2 years are up, but $650 renewal for the Note 3 and watch that's $$$$$. I would look like a Bond dork if it would improve my effeciceny and make more money $$$, but I suspect the S4 will suffice.

I guess what it could come down town is, horse power, both are quad but I am going to work for a company running a lot of high end third party apps on the phone whatever I get, so I will take a close look at specs.

I thought you hated Verizon and $90 was too much?

I have the HTC Inc 2 which is CDMA/GSM compatible.

So I thought I could get some unlock software and swap carriers.

People talk?

If there is a better one I am open. I need to balance price/quality as I am job hunting and sound quality is important, but not $90 important.

So.... don't get the watch.

I promise you that watch is not going to make you more money. I promise you the Note will not make you more money then the Galaxy will.

They are so similar that it SHOULD come down to size. The extra .3 of GHZ the Note will give you won't even be noticeable. You are over analyzing. GO to the store. Hold them both. Which feels better in your hand? Get that one. Leave the Watch behind.

I appreciate your point of view the reason I was asking about HP was I will be running a lot of business apps on this phone from the company that is employing me. It will be a tool to make or lose money I will be doing software based demos on whatever device I buy since I am a high tech sales guy.

To clarify earlier, I cancelled with Verizon and switched to Page Plus on my old VZ phone. Right now I carry two devices for work my personal and a company provided blackberry.

My new employer will allow me to run off my own device so just sign a new contract with VZ or whomever and do that so it's S4 or Note 3

If you are going to be showing Demos from your phone to clients, Note 3 no question.
Bigger screen. Period.

agrees with peregrine bigger screen and faster processer. programs start up quicker on the note 3 vs the s4 trust me when i say that comming from the s4. leave the watch behind if you dont want to look like james bond. though the watch displays yout text msgs e-mails call logs contacts. it also has voice memo and s voice for voice controll as well as a pedometer lol camera and you can take pics and transfer em to your phone as well as the watch can be used as a phone also since its connted by your phones bluetooth and nfc. though i do love the note 3 and all the multitasking fuctions that it can do unlike the s4 just personal preferance
