This is extremely good advice. It's the same approach I usually take. However I'll be the first to admit I let my enthusiasm get the best of me.
As a result I do realize I'm gambling by pre-ordering a day one Note 3. Yet that said, I'm fortunate to have a very good SGS 4, which I will fall back on in the event my Note 3 is bug ridden, has major annoyances, or otherwise fails to fill my needs. I'm that way about my laptops too, always having a new "spare" on hand. Redundant as it is, the peace of mind is worth it
