Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review


You do not get the title of being one of the best smartphones in the market without actually having something great. Samsung Galaxy Note III not only marked the time when they changed their built quality but a time they started showing some concrete awesomeness in their phones. The Galaxy Note III is an absolute power house and has amazing software integrations, you have to read this.


As I said, this one marked the change in their built quality. Samsung Galaxy Note III has a leather back panel. But here is the disclaimer- it comes stitched on a flexible plastic body. This is pretty clever and you don’t realize it much. Galaxy Note III is substantially large so it is not one of the best phones to get your hands around or fit in the pocket. It has close bezels which make it look really classy. Samsung Galaxy Note III is surely one of the best looking and built phones by Samsung period.

Samsung are now making some of the most beautiful displays we have ever seen on the smartphones. This one has a 5.7 inch full HD AMOLED display. The colours are so amazing, it has vivid colours. They look very clear and sharp. Samsung Galaxy Note III’s display has real deep black levels. Videos on this display are like Christmas in your heart. It very beautiful and so is the gaming graphics. This gives it a solid base of amazing software integration.


Samsung Galaxy Note III has the same 13MP sensor that we saw on the Galaxy S4. It takes seriously amazing photographs but they tend to be more on the oversaturated side. They are able to capture the beautiful colours but not in their natural tone. The detailing from the camera is brilliant. The user interface allows you to tweak your photos pre or post shot. You also get the unique ability to capture video in 4K quality. Most of the features on the camera, the Note III borrows from Galaxy S4.


The phone is not worthy of the Note series if it is not a complete work station. And it is all possible only because of the great software integration. The stylus along with this is the best romantic couple in technology. Samsung Galaxy Note III hosts the v4.3 Android Jelly Bean. With the S Pen (stylus) you are able to access various features such as the Scrap Booker, S Finder, Active Memo etc. and it also comes with the features from Samsung Galaxy S4 too.


I would say Samsung Galaxy Note III shall be used as an example for performance of the smartphones. So many features, such a fast processor and still the battery life is astonishing. Samsung Galaxy Note III has a Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM. That kind of power is too much and I am sure there is no app in the market that can fully tap into that much processing. It has the latest NFC and Bluetooth versions on board for sharing and pairing.

Final Thoughts

Samsung Galaxy Note III is a remarkable phone. If I had this much cash I would probably buy this one given I want a phone like Note III- large display and a complete work station. It is priced reasonably well considering the price of Galaxy S4. Note III serves you well and good battery life is a huge plus that you gain from buying this device.

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.
