Ok, the more that I see of the Note 3, the more I want it. I may get the Note 3 instead of the next Nexus. At this point, the only think making me want the Nexus over the Note is the price. The Nexus will probably be less than half the price of the Note 3 (but hey, you getting a ton more things with the Note), so I an undecided. Which do you guys think I should get (looking at the rumored specs for the Nexus 5)?
PS I still have to see the size in person of the Note 3.
Say I get the Note 3. I like all the cool features, but say I were to install a launcher or something. Would I be able to keep those features while using a launcher? If not, then what are these themes I keep hearing about? Are they like different textures for app icons?
Gesture stuff might be ROM based or it might be app based, I don't think any one could tell you.
Well, I probably shouldn't of said anything about the camera, because now that I think about it, the Samsung camera is an app, meaning that even if I use a launcher, I should still have it. But also features like the multitasking (which even lets you multitask while you multitask!) and such.
Not happening. Only one app can be in focus at an time. I don't even think Windows 8 tablets do this.
No, it works. Not for all apps, but many common apps like browsers or email clients support this.

(The faint white dots are because I have Show Touches enabled in developer options, and I took that screenshot by swiping with the edge of my palm, so it registered touches.)
The thing is, I feel it's much more of a gimmick than an actual useful feature. There may be people who use it in their day-to-day lives, but it's kind of useless in my case given that I really don't need to control two apps at once.
Well, I just went to my local AT&T store, and all I can say is that the Note 3 is massive. I really didn't think it would be so big. I may still get it, but my mom thinks it looks outrageous, and it may not fit in my pocket all the time. Well, I might still get it, but I'm still waiting on the Nexus 5 to start seeing what I want.
While it may not be the best choice, I can tell you that if you were actually to get it, you'll get used to how big it is very quickly. 8 months ago I thought anything above 4.5" was too big for me to use well. Now, I feel like I can easily handle a 6.3" phone if I wanted to.
as for emulator's, no, you dont need an external sd card for it, just browse to where you save the file, for example, on the n64 emulator i use:
also, ignore the extsdcard, thats just where i choose to save my n64 roms, when you go to choose file, you just go up parents folder tell your as high as you can, then click sdcard0, which would be the internal sd card (note, that it may be called something different depending on device, i use the GS3 AT&T edition
