Samsung unveiled its latest addition to its Note series in the shape of Note 3, with 5.7 inches of display and Snapdragon 800 processor with 3gb of ram. The phone itself doesn’t fit in a phone category neither in a tablet category and it’s better to give it a phablet category like Galaxy Mega 6.3 launched by Samsung and Sony Xperia Z Ultra 6.4.
Note 3 packs Super AMOLED display that runs at 1080p resolution that is without any doubt better than its predecessor Note 2 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. It packs 386 pixels per inch which seems to me better than its rival Xperia Z Ultra, but not as good as we have seen on LG G2.
Samsung Note 3 is powered with mighty Snapdragon 800 processor with a 2.3 GHZ clock speed and 3gb of Ram, this is a best clock speed you can have in your mobile until now with 3gb of ram. Note 3 have powerful Adreno 330 GPU same Gpu that we have on LG G2 and Xperia Z Ultra to push all the power for gaming and graphics. Hardware is one of the strength in this mobile as it introduces you to most powerful Snapdragon 800 with over clock cpu speed with 3gb of ram.
Despite the fact Note 3 sports 5.7 inches of display the Note 3 is thinner and lighter than Note 2, measuring 8.3mm and weighing just 168g. However, it’s not easy to handle Note 3 in one hand due to its massive measurements unless you have giant hands or fingers or if you are comparing it with Xperia Z Ultra. It's set in a textured, leather-effect rear edged in fake stitching. Perhaps stung by the criticism aimed at the cheap-looking glossy plastic of the Galaxy S4 and its predecessor, Samsung is obviously going for the premium look of an expensive wallet, and, coupled with the classy metal rim and let see does its going to work or not.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes up with Android 4.3 and runs Samsung Touchwiz with a same feature that we have on S4, like air gesture, air view, smart scroll, smart stay and many motion sensors that we have on S4. However Note 3 is accompanied by Spen with some of the additional features as compared to Note 2 to make Spen more productive than its predecessor.
There's 32GB of built-in storage, while a microSD slot will add upto 64GB if needed.
Note 3 packs 4G LTE connectivity, HD Voice along with NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on S4.
Note is equipped with removable 3200 mAh battery which seems to me better than Xperia Z Ultra and LG G2.
Note 3 has 13 MP camera at the back which is capble of recording 1080p (4k) videos from it and supports HDR for both stills and movies with Dual shot mode like S4 Camera with single flash. On the front of Note 3 we have 2 Mega pixel camera similar to Xperia Z Ultra and LG G2.
To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below
Note 3 packs a considerable beautiful 5.7 inches display with a superior design, better camera and strong processor than its predecessor.
One of the weaknesses I have found in Note 3 is its build quality for some of the users and unrelated software features which people think slow down a device and doesn’t make any good use for them.
3gb of ram is the biggest opportunity Samsung can avail by introducing a Snapdragon 800 processor in its new flagship.
The biggest threat to Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is Xperia Z Ultra, Htc One Max and LG G2, as all of them packs Snapdragon 800 processor.
Note 3 is expected to fall on shelves on 25th September with bang.
