My skin tone looks bizarre and mottled. It just looks terrible!!!
Settings you used? Is this the front or rear camera? And it's really hard to tell exactly how low of light that really is. The place I work in looks like it is pretty well lit but if I were to take a photo here, I'd have to ramp up a few settings because it isn't really. My copy of the N3 did pretty well considering but I also don't think it is as dark as where you took that photo.
One thing to note is that ANY digital camera shooting underexposed like that will have some IQ issues, some will be harder to spot than others but they will be there. A tiny sensor packed full of pixels like the Note 3 will show more artifacts than a "full frame" sensor that's not nearly as densely packed. If I had to guess, I'd say that the shot posted isn't too far out of what one should expect from a sensor of this size for those conditions.
