I have a Note 2 myself. I have big hands so it works pretty nicely (for comparison, I can type just fine on a full sized iPad in portrait mode just fine). However to me the Note 3 looks like a bit of hardware upgrade 1GB more RAM, faster processor, bit better camera. Most of the more significant selling point changes however seem to be software. Which is much like the transition from SGS3 to 4, why can't a lot of these features be on older devices? The pen is a clear example of this. My Note 2 recognizes when I hover with the pen and has a button on the pen for certain gestures and actions, why can't I get the improved version the Note 3 has in an update?
I know software development costs money, I'm a CS major myself. But these kinds of new releases are what's causing Samsung to go from the championed "Android done easy" and somewhat beloved company by the tech community to being hated and being infamous for meaningless upgrades to their product lines and horrible update support.
