It's quite obviously a Chinese knock off.

"122 sold" - Oh dear!

To be fair it's not a bad knock off for the price.
For £100 it'll do what you expect of a £100 phone.

But it's not a Note 3 and is not going to be as good as a Note 3.

Ebay can be a bit misleading sometimes but the easiest way to spot a knock off is to look at the description. Usually the specifications are completely different and it states the phone is dual sim or comes with an MTK processor. Those are the big give aways... oh and it's £100 and not £400+...

The problem is not what you'll get... a hundred bucks will get you a hundred bucks worth of phone (benefit of doubt etc...)... The problem is that the vendor claims it's a Note 3 which, as Ahmad already said, it isn't.

AVOID the vendor. In fact: they are borderline criminal in most jurisdictions.

Yes, by calling it both a "Note 3" and an "N9000", the seller is in breach of the Misrepresentation Act 1967. As the seller will be fully aware that the product they are selling is, in fact, not a Note 3 N9000, they would be liable to pay damages (if found guilty) as their conduct would qualify as fraudulent misrepresentation.
