This must be the best time for smartphone lovers across the world. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 USA release date, price details are here. AT&T launch is set for Oct. 1.

Though iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are being sold in their millions across the USA, there are several million others who are awaiting the introduction of even better handset in the market. I must not just say, better, the handset they are awaiting the arrival in the local market is far better than what iPhone 5S or for that matter iPhone 5C offer.

There is no doubt that despite all the praise that iPhone 5S is garnering in the market across the world, it comes with nominal improvement over its previous version. Analysts are saying that other than the processor that is really better than the previous version, the only thing substantially better is its brand new OS version, iOS 7. But the improvement that iOS 7 brings to the new and shiny Apple baby is also available to older version of the Cupertino based company.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is very different from its previous version, Note 2 that was way better than anything that even iPhone 5S offers now. The only disadvantage of the handset is its huge size of 5.7 inch. But this same disadvantage is great plus point for millions of its fans not just in the US, but across the world.

The handset is already available in as many as 60 countries as of now and its US launch is just 3 days from now. AT&T will have the handset on Oct. 1 for $299.99; T-Mobile will have the Note 3 on Oct. 2 for a $199.99 down payment; Sprint will have it on Oct. 3 for $349; and Verizon will have the Note 3 on Oct. 10 for $299. The SIM free version will be available for as around $750 in US.
