Which Galaxy Tab / Note / Mega models have removable battery & be used as phone

Q1:
Which models of the Galaxy gadgets ( Tab 10?  Note 3? Mega?)
has battery that's removable?  I prefer to have spare batteries
& not external battery packs as these packs are bulky

Q2:
The specified model with external battery should also be able
to function as a phone (not just as tablet) plus sending SMS &
Wasapp.  Ideally the screen size is between 4.6" to 10".

Q3:
Must be able to support 4G or LTE


I saw Note 3 is out but not too sure if it meets the above 4
criteria (removable battery, function as phone with Wasapp,
SMS & screen size of 4.6-10" & 4G support)

Tab 10 - Battery is not user removable (easily at least)
Note 3 - Removable Battery
Mega - Removable Battery

Q2:

Note 3 and Mega are phones, not tablets, but have larger screen sizes than standard touch screen phones.

Note 3 - 5.7" screen
Mega - 6.3" screen

Q3:
Must be able to support 4G or LTE
Note 3 - 4G LTE
Mega - 4G LTE


the OS of the galaxy device must be able to sync with Outlook & have free MS Office (Word, Excel, Ppt) & free PDF reader

Both sync with outlook.  They are both Androids, so tey both can get the same apps.  No MS Office is free, so if you don't mind getting Polaris Office (which may come pre-installed on both) then you will have no issues.

In my opinion -
If you are looking for the biggest phone, the Mega is the best.  If you are looking for a large phone with more features, the Note 3 is the best.

Another reason I don't get Galaxy Note's styli is it does not
have a clip for me to clip to my pocket besides the fact that the
grip is too slim; I prefer the normal pen-size circumference grip

The above post was meant for another EE thread but accidentally posted it.

Btw, does Note 2 or Note 3 have a bigger screen?  Do they both come with
fine-tipped stylus?

Between Mega, Note 2, Note 3, which ones have longer
battery standby time?  I send & get lots of SMSes from the
servers that I support & this drains battery too

can't see small letters well on iPhones.

In my country, Mega retails for about the same price as Note 3
though in North America, Mega with the same phone plan
comes at half the price of Note 3

Read that the pixel & screen of Mega is not good as Samsung
cut down the Super-AMOLed screen:

Guess for the same price, Note 3 is better value for me as
Note 3's screen is better?

Note 3 is a far better deal, but still comes with the smaller stylus.

You can overcome this by carrying your own stylus pen.
