Carrying on the Note tradition, Samsung launches Note 3, the successor to its last year hit Note 2. Perfectly built for those who want to have both, the phone and the Tab, but find it too cumbersome to carry both.
With a hand busting Super Amoled, full HD, 5.7 inches screen and a thinner and lighter body which weighs at 168 grams, 15 grams lighter to its predecessor, Note 3 has almost achieved its goal. The phone carries a supersonic 2.3 GHZ quad core processor with a 3 GB Ram and an optional 32 or 64 GB internal memory. Its backbone is the latest offering from Android, the 4.3 Jelly Bean, which runs fast and efficiently.
Samsung are fully aware that Note 3 will not be a mass selling product as the price does not indicate the same. Priced at somewhere around 44,700/-it has some improved features like the S pen which, when taken out, immediately puts the screen on a special menu called the Air command. You can scribble a number on the screen and the phone lets you call that number directly. Write a line of address and it takes you to the Google maps. Besides, Note 3 carries some exclusive apps like the S Translate, in which you talk to the phone in a language and it talks back to you in the translated language.
The most coveted feature however, is the connectivity to the Smart Watch. Note 3 is the first phone which can be connected to the Galaxy Smart Watch. It sure comes in handy especially with its large size, which makes it a bit cumbersome to carry.
However, Samsung’s fetish with plastic back cover continues. Although it is given a leather finish, with the stitches and all, still it doesn’t do justice to the handset. With a larger screen, the pixels should have been improved, but the 386ppi doesn’t give it a crisp picture.
But the 13 megapixel camera and smart designing on the edges, helps in ensuring that Samsung Note 3 is one of the best Smartphones launched in India yet.
