Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the newest phone in the massive (and massively popular) Note lineup, a runaway hit that many doubted would gain any traction in the market. With the huge display comes the S Pen, an active and accurate stylus with some awesome software features. Looking at Samsung’s track record, we know ...
Summary: Samsung got a lot right here, despite the throw-everything-at-the-wall software melange, and I can easily recommend the device to someone looking for the closest thing to a PC replacement that fits in a pocket.
Summary: For all of the Galaxy Note 3′s positives, there is one big negative that you may be unable to overcome: it’s a damn big phone. To be perfectly clear: if you purchase this phone, you can forget about one-handed texting; nearly every task will require two hands. The only time I catch myself using one hand is when my phone is on a table or I’m just scrolling through a news feed.
Summary: The third time is the charm? The newest addition to Samsung's successful Galaxy Note series comes with a huge 5.7-inch display - fitting, given the current trend toward ever-larger smartphone screen sizes. But is this beast truly a sight to behold or is it actually a step in the wrong direction?
Pros: Phenomenal battery life, Full HD Super AMOLED display, Extreme performance levels, USB 3.0 port, Camera quality, Capable of QFHD video playback, User-exchangeable battery, User-expandable internal storage (micro SD), S-Pen functionality, The combination of a lightning-fast SoC, a Super AMOLED display and superb battery life turn the Note 3 into an universal multimedia player in all situations - it is even capable of high-resolution QFHD video playback.
Cons: Rather expensive, Some SD cards incompatible?, This gets harder and harder to answer as almost all current high-end devices ship with pretty much every feature available on the market. This observation holds true in case of the Note 3 as well - we are not really "missing" anything on that phone.
Summary: This review has seriously over-used the words "big", "huge" and "monster". The Galaxy Note 3 isn't for everyone. You'll need big pockets, or better still a bag, and if you have large hands that will help too. It's not a cheap phone either, but it's cheaper than some rival smartphones, which is surprising when you consider what you get for the money. You have to experience a phone this big and powerful to really appreciate what it can do for you.
Conclusion: We know: it’s a lot to take in. That’s almost always the case with a flagship-class smartphone, and even more so with a device like a Galaxy Note. It’s not just physically larger; it’s larger-than-life , with a spec sheet and a feature set that seem almost specifically designed to overwhelm.
Pros: Most powerful hardware available, Best display we’ve seen on a smartphone this size, Removable battery, expandable storage, Outstanding battery life, S Pen offers unmatched utility, Unparalleled multitasking ability
Cons: -like news and social viewing experience. It’s not perfect; it takes more than a second to launch and several seconds to update, and out of the box it appears every time you hit the home button more than once, which is pretty annoying. But it’s essentially an omnipresent , As noted above, the Note 3 is available unlocked via , Negri Electronics, for a full retail price of $689 to $829, depending on model. The Note 3 is currently rolling out to over 140 countries worl...
Conclusion: Prepping for that crucial holiday season, Samsung seemingly has a one-two punch offering now, seeing that the Galaxy Note 3 perfectly complements Sammy’s other flagship smartphone. On the surface, the two share many of the same commonalities, like their designs and software experiences, but as we’ve come to know and love, the Note 3 gets the love with its juicier hardware specs, updated design, and deeper software experience.
Pros: Long battery life, Has all the S4 features & more, Fantastic note taking features, Well rounded performance
Cons: Expensive, Weak speaker, Limited apps support with Air View, Gestures, etc
Summary: The Galaxy Note 3's all-day battery life would be reason enough to recommend this phone. However, when you also consider its best-in-class screen, sharp camera, powerful software and pen-enabled apps, it's hard to not to want this Android phablet. Users who desire a smaller or less expensive handset may opt for the Galaxy S4 or HTC One , both of which cost $100 less on T-Mobile. Those who like Apple's operating system will still prefer an iPhone 5s.
