ready for note 3

I am thinking of a new mobile phone. I would like a device with large storage available and outstanding battery life. My Galaxy Nexus (keep it as alternative) was installed a mpj 5000mah extended battery so it could be well into 2 days on average. The Samsung Note 3, one of my dream device, stands as the pinnacle that smartphone reached. I really care about if it is fun to play with, and useful for productivity. I've been also waiting for Nexus 5, however, just as my feared, it was not on Verizon. Soo I am ready for note 3 NOW!
