Samsung Galaxy Note 3

SAMSUNG NOTE 3, the new big thing!

The latest phone in the company’s series is the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Picking up where its predecessor left off, it comes with an S Pen stylus that is now more functional than ever. But that’s far from all. In fact, Samsung’s newest Note handset lands right into the high-end Smartphone department, packing hardware that will easily get any tech geek excited. That includes a massive, 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, a last-generation quad- or octa-core processor, and a 13MP camera, all of that complemented by software fatures and stylus functionality found on no other handset.

So yeah, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is shaping up as a beast of a Smartphone, ranking among the best and on the top of the list that have been announced so far. And now is the time to find out whether it has what it takes to become as successful as its predecessors.

Samsung did mostly what was expected of it with the design of the Note 3, and it did it well, making the phone thinner and lighter than its predecessor. Even though the new model comes with a 5.7-inch screen – 0.2 inches larger in diagonal size than the display on last year’s Note II

We were surprised to see Samsung taking a different approach to designing the exterior of the phone. The company has picked a faux leather back with stitching elements, meant to prompt the impression of a venerable notebook. Although the back of the Galaxy Note 3 is actually made of plastic, it looks fancy and sophisticated, while the soft touch finish does remind us of real leather as we run our fingers across its surface. As usual, Samsung has opted for a removable back cover, underneath which we find the user-replaceable battery, as well as the SIM.

The display on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has grown a bit from what the second-gen Note had to offer. The front of the new model is great, its graced by a gorgeous, 5.7-inch display, and it’s a Full HD affair now.

Lastly Samsung has not forgotten to add some extra sensitivity to the touch screen on the Note 3, thus making it usable even while the user is wearing gloves. Interestingly, the panel’s sensitivity is adjusted automatically, meaning that there’s no need for the user to set it manually.
