Review Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 Smartphone

 

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...

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

Rather expensive ; Some SD cards incompatible

Such battery runtimes, despite the huge Full HD display and extremely fast hardware: Approximately 18 hours during our Wi-Fi test will be hard to match

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review: Big, fast and feature-packed, but pricey

 

The Galaxy Note 3 is a clear step up from its predecessor, with a larger screen in a smaller, thinner, lighter chassis, plenty of usability enhancements, plus impressive performance and battery life. The price tag is the only serious drawback.

Superb 5.7-inch sAMOLED screen ; Good S Pen stylus functionality ; LTE mobile broadband ; 802.11ac Wi-Fi ; 2.3GHz quad-core SoC ; Good battery life

Large ; Potentially confusing array of UI enhancements and software extras ; Cheesy faux-leather backplate ; Expensive

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Verizon Wireless)

Massive, stunning 1080p display. Lighter and faster than before. Dizzying array of software enhancements, some of which are genuinely useful

Like all phablets, it's huge. Dizzying array of software enhancements, some of which are dubious

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Verizon)

 

With its big and bright display, long battery life and improved pen input capability, the Note 3 is the phablet to beat.

Strong battery life; Gorgeous full-HD screen; Sharp camera; Useful pen apps; Powerful performance

Not one-hand-friendly; Aggressive crapware; Inconsistent LTE performance

With its nearly 10 hours of battery life, big and bright screen, sharp camera and powerful software, the Galaxy Note 3 is the ultimate high-end smartphone. Consumers looking for a smaller device on Verizon should consider the 5-inch Galaxy S4, 4.7-inch...
