The Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Revealed
After months of relying on the leaked images, reviews and rumors in the internet, Samsung has finally revealed the latest in the Galaxy Note family, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Some rumors were proven wrong, and most of them go beyond the real specs of this much awaiting gadget. But what entails with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
Well, it actually comes with full HD Super AMOLED 5.7-inch display with 1920×1080 resolution (that’s 397 pixels per inch), which is not that far from the Galaxy Note 2 with 5.5-inch display. It runs on a 2.3GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 800 Processor and a RAM that jumped to 3GB (from the traditional 2GB of its predecessor), and Android Jellybean 4.3. Back-camera flashes with 13MP which is capable of 4k video capture and 1.9MP front-facing camera. The device has internal storage of 32/64 GB and it’s expandable using microSD card. And, the battery, it compliments the size of the display with the size of 3200mAH.
Meanwhile, the design isn’t similar to the Galaxy Note 2 since the edges of the Galaxy Note 3 are quite sharper. And instead of plastic casing that gets negative comments from the critics, they used leather finish for the backing. So definitely it won’t be mistaken as Galaxy Note 2, unlike the previous review with Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4. Design-wise, Galaxy Note 3 so far gets my eye sparkling — I want to pre-order now!
The highlight of the Galaxy Note family is, of course, the S-pen. Galaxy Note 3’s S-pen gets cool features for superior experience that it brand itself “more than just a pen”. It enables you to enjoy the upgraded functionality by simply hovering or doing air gestures on your device. Firstly, once you hover your S-pen on your device, a dot will appear. In the Galaxy Note series, when you push the dot, it will show you the Air Command that allows you to choose an action from something that you have written (calling a phone number, add contact, or sending a message). Secondly, transferring something to your Scrapbook app is only as easy as encircle the items you want using your S-pen. This Air Command is very usefully for most fan. And thirdly, drawing a box on your screen will pull up a list of useful application that you can use. This is perfect for multitasking to show notes or images that you can refer to while working on other task on your device. Remember, the application you chose will be shown as big as the box you’ve drawn on the screen.
For me, this is a big “Yes” for must haves; however, price is still TBA here in the Philippines. No matter how much this phablet will be though, it’s worth it to have this device.
