Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review

 

Despite receiving heavy criticism for its overwhelming size, Samsung managed to make this niche segment wildly popular, not to mention highly profitable. Everyone has a 5-inch and above handset today but they exist mostly due to pressure from the...

The features of S Pen have been updated heavily and there are plenty of new gestures available. Some of the important ones are best demonstrated in the video below. Apart from the usual suite of apps that were present in the Galaxy S4, Samsung also...

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)

 

Samsung refines its top-tier phablet with the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3, a powerful, full HD phone/tablet combo that may be the only mobile device you need.

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

Now in its third iteration, the Galaxy Note line continues to prove skeptics wrong—people just can't get enough of these supersized smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on Verizon Wireless ($299.99 with two-year contract) picks up right where its...

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...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE (N9005 only), 5.7" 16M-color 1080p Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen; Adobe RGB mode, S Pen, Android OS v4.3 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI, N9005: Quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU;...

N9000 model (Exynos) lacks LTE and 2160p video capture, Large size makes single-hand operation problematic, No OIS, No dedicated camera key, No FM radio, Shared camera interface makes framing tricky

Samsung has done it again - and it made it look so easy. The Galaxy Note 3 can pretend it has no competition, while otherwise remarkable rivals know they'll will have to live with - but not quite live up to - comparisons to the gadget that defines an...

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review

 

Samsung essentially created the market for the in-between smartphone — a device that could ostensibly take the place of both a smartphone and a tablet — with its wildly popular Galaxy Note lineup. (The Korean phone-maker recently boasted that it has...

Great performance ; Long battery life ; Improved look and feel

Still too big for many people ; Improved S Pen software still lacks many logical features ; TouchWiz is an acquired taste

One more from the company that invented the huge phone
