Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 good as a tablet?

I'm torn between buying

1. just a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to use for everything

2. a tablet that's a bit bigger like the Google Nexus 7 or LG G Pad plus a cheaper smartphone like the Moto G.

Any thoughts from people who own any of those things!? :)

Well...
I'd say the Note does most things. Yes, on a tab or iPad many games are more fun and better to control. It is also more convenient to edit documents or photos. But that's about it...

It really is your choice. Of course, the Note is also a bit more convenient to stow away in your coat's pocket...

I only ever use my Note 2 as a phone, I can't imagine the Note 3 is vastly different to use. It's just too small to be used as a tablet.

The OP should say what s/he intends to do with the gadget... I know people who use their tablets almost exclusively for Twitter or FB... maybe a quick light game, a short sneezing panda video... A Note can do that unless your eyes are really bad.

On the other hand, yes - an 8-in or 10-in tablet does add convenience.... for watching a longer video, using Photoshop Touch, complex text documents etc, etc...

Well, yes, but I could hook my laptop up to my plasma TV and still only use it to check FB and Twitter. What I meant was that the Note phones are too small to perform tasks which are generally considered to be tablet only or vastly better when performed on a tablet properly.

Gotcha... which brings us to the whole are-tablets/phablets-useful territory... which I'm way too important and bored for right now :p
