Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo: Preview


Samsung is out with a new phone, this one is a smaller and lighter version of their flagship the Note 3- it is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. We will present you with the changes these guys have made to get this slower and more toned down version a full review will be available very soon.

Just on the design side, both phones are more or less the same but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is just a tad smaller. The display on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is a 5.5 inch 720p HD display compared to the 5.7 inch 1080p full HD display on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It has the same leather case at the back which gives you a good grip but the phone is just too large to be too comfortable.

You get a standard 8MP shooter on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo while we have a stunning 13MP one with 4K recording capabilities on the original Note 3. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo also has a much smaller battery and hence battery life. It supports NFC, latest v4 Bluetooth and all those things that you would find on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 feature wise. Even the features of the new improved multi window, the air gestures and the notes are all there on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo comes with 2GB of RAM and Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 & dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex A15 whereas the Note 3 came with the Snapdragon 800 and 3GB RAM, so yeah in everyway a slower and smaller version. In other words, Galaxy Note 3 Neo is literally a Note 3 Mini. People who do not have the money to reach the Note 3 will surely want to get their hands on this one.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.
