Samsung recently unveiled three new devices, the Galaxy Gear SmartWatchGalaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) tablet. We were able to get our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and decided to do our hand-on review of the device.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is Samsung’s thinnest and lightest ‘phablet’ yet. It features a screen larger than that of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note II, while maintaining the same width as the previous Galaxy Note version. The device also features an improved S Pen and enhanced multitasking features.

Hardware & Design

The GALAXY Note 3 comes with a wider (5.7″) Full HD Super AMOLED display, yet slimmer (8.3mm) and lighter (168g) hardware design, and is powered by a 1.9 GHz Quad-Core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB user memory, 3,200 mAh battery and runs on Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. Also, equipped with a 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera with Smart Stabilization and high CRI LED flash, you can take crisp photos, even in low light and active situations. Plus, it can record and play in full HD (1080p), and record in UHD.

The GALAXY Note 3 also features a faux leather back and delicate stitching that delivers a premium look and feel.

The new design gives the devices a more premium appearance with its almost sharp edges, similar to what we have on the S2

Everyday Made Easier with S Pen

Air Command, a palette of features and commands which you can activate on any screen simply by hovering and clicking the S Pen button, lets you access useful features for everyday tasks such as Action Memo, Scrapbook, and S Finder.

Smarter Large Screen Experience

With a larger Super AMOLED screen, the GALAXY Note 3 not only provides a stunning and defined viewing experience but also enables multitasking capabilities that allow users to fully utilize the larger screen. The enhanced new Multi Window allows you to easily move content between applications in one quick step with the Drag and Drop mode.
