Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Review
From a few months the attention of the entire world gadgets fans is aimed to this smartphone. Also, after they found the full Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs, soon after its release day, many people are already crazy by them new wish: owning as soon as possible this awesome phablet!

Among the most impressive hardware that shocked almost fans, its 3GB of RAM is comparable with a the random access memory that joins a standard laptop or even a desktop computer. With other words, its a very generous amount of RAM that will never be riched by any number of same time running apps.

One important aspect related to this smartphone, also called as phablet, is that it arrives on worldwide markets in 3 main versions: a standard Samsung Galaxy Note 3, another one with dual SIM support, and another version that support LTE connectivity. Of course, prices will be different, even if the storage internal memory and/or CPU type will be the same.

Also, its 5.7 inches display can satisfy the most pretentios people, especially from the business area, where many apps involve a lot of particular fields (such as excel genre apps), and the 386 ppi can provide excelent and clear view for anything: images, videoclips, apps, etc. But we should take in consideration the quality of glass screen: it seems Gorilla Glass II doesn't join this phablet (as previous version: the Note 2), and scratches could harm your screen very soon after you'll get a Note3 (well... a screen protector is a must).

Related to the internal memory space, it cames in two versions: 32GB and 64 GB, that can be extended with an external memory storage micro SD card up to 128GB (in case you'll choose the 64GB version and add a 64GB micro SD). And also related to version, I must add some info about the type of CPUs that are joining Note3: the 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 will be available on LTE smartphones, and the (4 x 1.9 Ghz + 4 x 1.3 GHz) eight-core Exynos 5 Octa will join the 3G phablets.

About the authonomy I can say 3200 mAh are just enough for a classic/standard user/fan, but people who are using a lot of hours per day the internet and many huge resource consuming apps will need a power accessory: an extended battery.

Other details about Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are minor, and these are related to a 4.3 Jelly Bean OS version, a 13Mpx foto/video camera, lots of apps and new software inovations (by the way, it seems that "Air" function is loading very slow).

But the price of Note 3?

As usual, if you pre-order Galaxy Note 3, then it's a little more expensive than it's official price after release days over all U.S. markets by main mobile carriers (Verizon, U.S. Cellular, T-Mobile, etc), that are selling it arround $750 for an Note 3 unlocked version, and more, more cheaper if you'll get it with a 2 year contract.

Thanks for reading my short and comprehensive Galaxy Note III review, and if you liked it, please share it with your friends...

Galaxy Note 3 will have a metal case?

Galaxy Note 3 will have a metal case!

HTC representatives launched the rumor that for this autumn launch of the latest phablet, named Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the south koreans will no more use for casing plastic material, that it will be replace with another material from the premium category, up to this point is not clear whether this rumor has been released to promote the idea that HTC products are better tha Samsung's, or the rumor is a checked information inside the south Korean giant.

The same criticism came from Apple, HTC and Apple both taking advantage of the fact that they have an aluminium cover, not from plastic like that of devices from Samsung.

Sources within the company say that for the phablet that will be released in a few months, this issue will no loger be a proble, without clarifying whether it will be made from aluminum, however, to maintain its light weight, it will most likely be made from aluminum, because this metal is light.

The south korean representatives had the same intention to replace plastic with ceramic or aluminum for the recent launch of the Galaxy S4 smartphone, but finally the case remained still from plastic, because it was more light, more easily processed and because there was no time for producing tens of millions of units until the launch that took place in March.
According to the latest rumors, the release of this phablet will take place in September in Germany, so this will be the first Samsung device with metal casing.

This improvement, and its specs: a 5.9 inches full HD display, 2 GHz proccessor, most likely an Exynos 5 octa core proccessor, an improved S pen device, 4 GB of RAM, and a lot of others features like: S Health, Group play, IR Blaster, etc., that are already available with the just released S4 smartphone.

The battery that comes with it is impressive, the phablet will have 4000 mAh, so the device will be used for a long period of time and will support even more complex applications running simultaneously. These are the news for today, other rumors you can read on other posts from this blog.

New rumors about Samsung Galaxy Note 3

New rumors about Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The only negative review that was brought to the south coreen company was related to materials used to cover smartphones and other devices from Note Series are made from plastic and not from the premium category, Samsung choosing to keep a very low weight of its devices by using plastic for cases. Recent rumors say that south koreans have taken into account this critical opinion of his buyers and for this autumn's launch aof the Note 3, this phablet's case will be made from premium materials, like metal.

This change in strategy from Samsung came after his HTC One competitor came with some standards in this field, and an aluminum casing made from high quality materials, so the South Korean company was forced to consider the use of other materials for making future phablet's casing which will be launched later this year, this being the second biggest launch in 2013.

However, is possible that this rumor has been released from the fans or HTC's or even by HTC's PR department to convey the idea that HTC uses quality materials which are much better than those used by this Samsung competitor, anuway for the expected release of Note 3 in this fall will be very difficult, at this stage, to change the materials, and my opinion is that this phablet will have only plastic housing, as the just released S4, the plastic housing beeing a part of south Koreans own design.

However, this phablet will launch in a few months, in a time of high popularity just created by the latest launch in March, 14th, available these days for pre-order in U.S.

The stakes for the company is very high, considering that exports from Samsung represents 20% of total exports of South Koreans, known worldwide also for Electronics, Life Insurance, Securities, in recent years Samsung managed to move from a company known for offering cheap products to a company that offers products of the highest quality.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3
Samsung Galaxy S3 was replaced on March, 14th by a much improved version, but still many of his special features will be found upgraded in this autumn launch of a new phablet, how Note 3 was called, this being the second biggest launch of a high-performance device from Samsung in 2013.

South Korean company has experienced now after the last year's Galaxy S2 release issues, when it had serious difficulties in terms of large-scale production applications that they had with the Galaxy S4, so for Note 3 now we expect not to have such troubles, and after the great success of this year launch model in terms of pre-orders, everyone expects for the next device which will be launched in a few months, to have the same success and to record a bigger volumes of sales than his predecessor.

Special and unique features that Samsung's devices have in the last years, and aggressive but intelligent advertising compaigns helped the company to defeat the main competitor, Apple, last year having a higher volume of sales than the iPhone's.

The enthusiasm and customer's satisfaction for S3 is now found in the high interest of those who are looking forward the improved version to be available to pre-order and delivery in the first days of May, 2013.

Even after the release of S4, the previous version will remain long time in buyers preferences, because only now it is available for sale at extremely advantageous prices, and because of the fact that both the software and especially hardware components are very powerful.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have many technical specifications the just launched Galaxy S4 has, with the addition, of course, of the applications for the S Pen, hence its name phablet, because the appearance resembles a smartphone, but the performance and operating mode resembles a tablet.

News about the Release Date for Galaxy Note 3

Already known as phablet, because it looks more like a smartphone but it performs like a tablet, most likely will have the release date in early september, this year.

One of his special features will be a performant camera called Samsung Orb, it will have 13 MP, and is actually a clone of Android's Photo Sphere. Samsun Galaxy Note 3 will have integrated options for Facebook, thus allowing its customers to share more quickly with all their contacts panoramic photos taken with this high-performance device.

Other highly anticipated features are: an eight core Exynos 5 processor which is very strong and powerful, a flexible display that gives it a great durability, an improved S pen that will have more  wacom options, meanning that signal is generated by the S pen and the tablet receives and interprete it.

Since there are not many rumors about the price for Notes 3, likely it will follow the same pricing scheme that Note2, his predecessor had: it will be launched on most carriers with a $299 price, making it slightly more expensive than a smartphone, since it comes with additional accessories and technologies as S pen.

New feature for Samsung Galaxy Note 3: S Orb panorama


Already called "phablet", because it has features from both smartphones and tablets, this device is the second long awaited device released this year by the South Korean company, official announcements already citing its OLED display much more efficient that will replace the classic LCD, most probably in the third quarter of 2013.

Regarding the price, we will have it in the next weeks, now we have just rumors and unconfirmed information, the fact is that it will be a bit more expensive than Note 2, after the model of Galaxy S4, however, considering that the screen will be much higher, probably 6.3 inches, it will be a normal price.

Other rumors say even that display will be the same as that of S4, which is AMOLED, which is likely to be flexible, thinner and more resistant to shock, impact, the screen rather bending than crashing.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to be the first device from Samsung which will be equipped with a beautiful S orb camera type, that works similar to sphere panorama camera, that's already available on Android 4.2 operating system, known as Jelly Bean, the difference being that for this autumn launch, Samsung has  agreed with the some of the largest and most popular social network, so being able to integrate facebook sharing options in this feature.

However, it seems that this feature, S orb in the future will run on all devices from Samsung, so this is just the beginning.

Latest rumors about Note 3

Rumors and information about the launch, specifications and prices they will multiply as we approach the launch date, so we have the possibility to find out all we want about this wonderful device.

Being a true hybrid between a phone and a tablet, hence the name of phablet, Samsung had demonstrated by all previous products that is able to come every time with the latest technology incorporated in its products and in this way to overcome all competitors, with record sales volumes.

The previous note has enjoyed great success and expectations for this autumn launch are high, and the tendence for preferring this combination between a smartphone and a tablet is increasing, which is highly valued by Samsung.

Some rumors even say that the new note will have a different name, changing it this way means rebranding and start a new generation of Note, Galaxy Mega likely category, it is possible that this name change will take place even in the fall, so perhaps we will look instead of Samsung Note 3, at a Galaxy Mega.

Also according to rumors, likely will be two versions of Mega: 5.8 inches and 6.3 inches. If you periodically check posts in this blog, you will find out the latest details about the launch, specifications and other secrets of the next expected device from Samsung for the 2013.

Rumors about specs of Galaxy Note 3
According to the latest rumors, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have the same high-performance processor which you already found on Samsung Galaxy S4, namely exynos 5 processor with 8 cores, which support up to 2 GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 probably will still have 2 GB of RAM, and will reach a speed of 2 GHz, which is more than enough to support all incorporated applications or running simultaneously more complex applications.

Other features that will be inherited by Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung Galaxy S4 are: recognition and using eye movements to commands without touching the screen, smart scrolling, smart pause. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will still be made from plastic, so I expect it will have a very low weight, too, as all previous devices from Samsung.

Regarding the Galaxy Note 3 design, the rumors are contradictory: some say that line used by Samsung before will be maintained, while other rumors claim that Samsung will radically change the design of Galaxy Note 3, now it remains to be seen how Samsung will proceed with this launch in the late 2013.

Are very high chances that future design of Samsung Galaxy 3 looks like this: form a little right of the extremities, especially corners. Stay on this blog to find out first the latest news about Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from reliable sources, technicians and officials directly from Samsung.

Galaxy Note 3 - release date and price

The successful launch of Samsung Galaxy S4 will now be followed by the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Regarding the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, all rumors give the third quarter of 2013, given that the long awaited OLED display technology that Note 3 will be equiped with, will not be so easily accomplished . Its display is expected to have 6.3 inches, and according to Samsung's officials, the launch will take place in September.

Regarding the starting price of the Galaxy Note 3, all the rumors we have so far does not offer too many details, but it is expected to have a higher price than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, since it has a disply much higher, at 6.3. inches.

Rumored price for this smartphone that looks more like a tablet, but has the design of a  phone, is around $937, an the rumor will likely be confirmed in the coming weeks. First certainty regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is that it will have a screen of 6.3 inches with OLED technology.

Same screen of 6.3 inches may be reflected in near future also in Samsung Galaxy S5. The display of the Galaxy S4, with AMOLED technology, will be incorporated and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, may be moe flexible, more thinner and more resistant to shocks than Samsung Galaxy S4, thus, those from Samsung is trying to make glass screen better withstand shocks and to bend rather than break. From Smasung Galaxy Note 3 we wait a more efficient and much faster processor, a much higher resolution screen and many more applications available for S Pen.

Snapdragon 800 will join Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Snapdragon 800 will join Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The previous versions of Note had superior processors than the S series, so, for Galaxy Note 3 is expected a new high performance mobile CPU. Under the latest announced CPU technologies, it's clear that Snapdragon S800 will join the new Note 3, at least for United States, because in the last years Samsung usually made these smartphones with two version of processors. Also, is very possible that Exinos 5 octa to join this mobil device, maybe running at a higher speed.

Snapdragon 800

Designed as a mobile processor for smartphones, tablets and even more, its semiconductor technology is made for 28 nm HPm, the instruction set for CPU is ARMv7 and support up to 2.3 GHz, it's a quad core processor that uses Krait 400, and its cache levels are: Level 2 cache is 2Mb, Level 1 cache is 2x16kB, and L0 has 2x4kB.

Snapdragon 800 uses as GPU an Adreno 330, it's memory technology is a 2x32-bit dual-channel, running at 800 MHz (can be achieved the performance of 12.8 GB/sec), and ather incorporated technologies are TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, LTE, W-CDMA/UMTS, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless communication protocoles, USB 3.0/2.03, and of course Bluetooth 4.0.

Among devices that are using this high performance mobile CPU I can list LG D801, Google Nexus 7" 2.0 and Xiaomi Mi3, and is very possible that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to get Snapdragon s800 processor. Also, Note 3 will get more specific advanced feature of this CPU: USB 3.0, 802.11ac protocol to increase the wireless communications performance, Quick Charge 2.0 integrated to increase the battery life up to 75%, and so on.

What to expect from the new Galaxy Note 3?

The next week launch will be observed by those who are interested in Note, because it may may provide clues about its future facilities. Samsung will improve the formula in Notes and Samsung Galaxy S4 will set new standards in the field.

In terms of display and shape that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have, we know it will be a 6.3 inches and edge to edge embedded technology. Progress is evident, if we think that the first version of Notes was only 5.5 inches diagonal, so better features for this year's launch is a logical step forward, and through these new features are very close to tablets.

Recent history has already shown that Samsung Galaxy Note was inspired by Samsung Galaxy S, and so Samsung Galaxy S4 that will be launched next week, will greatly influence the design and performance of the following notes.

Many hopes are for Samsung to drop the plastic case?and adopt other materials from the premium category. I personally do not think this will happen too soon, because it would affect the weight of the device, so the aesthetics are sacrificed for for maintaining a very low weight.

In terms of image quality, it will have at least 1280 x 800 pixels resolution, and a decent pixel density also. I look forward the next releases from Samsung that will take place this year, most likely both in New York.

News for Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Its launch will be in late 2013, and it will be preceded by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on 14th March, 2013. It Will have a 5.9 inches active matrix Organic light emitting diode for display that makes images have more accuracy and sharpness. So, the response time is very high, and color saturation helps reduce blur in motion.

Initial rumors even say that it will come with a display of 6.3 inches, although in this case there is concern for functionality of the corners. A FullHD 1080p resolution and a density of 300 pixels per inch is likely for Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It will have at least 2 GB of RAM and a 13 MP camera, probably just like Samsung Galaxy S4.

We know that Stylus is already customary for all versions of Galaxy Note, so it will be standard equipment on the launch in late 2013, this is actually a writing tool for shapes and figures, or for notes that requires high precision on touchscreens. Such sharp objects had been used even by the Romans for writing on tablets. Now stylus has many applications in arts, design, graphics. Phones or tablets today use the stylus to navigate through different menus and settings precisely or to make accurate selections. It's a great precision tool that allows even handwriting or drawing on sensitive surfaces.

Battery and connectivity for Galaxy Note 3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs
The standard microSD card (16GB, 2GB or 64GB of internal storage) is already tested and provides performance, so from this  point of view, there will be no surprises.

Samsung has raised the stakes in terms of connectivity, so i expect Samsung Galaxy NOte 3 exceed previous version. It will have the entire range of wi-ficonnections, and the 4D technology will also be added.
We already know that the battery at Notes 2 has a very long lifetime because of the 3100 mAh battery, so there are no complaints about it. I personally expect a 3300mAh battery from Motorola. It remains to be seen. I expect wireless battery charging, as well for Samsung Galaxy S4.This is truly an innovation that will revolutionize the market. However, the release date is sometime in the fall of 2013 (around September). There are rumors that even the lion battery will reach 4000 mAh.
Currently the release date is uncertain, being taken into account that competition has already announced the launch date for Iphone 6, so it is possible that Korean manufacturers will advance the launch. I will tell you the updates here, on my blog.

Hardware and software specifications for Note 3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs
First Note was equipped with the latest technology, but lacked style; it will be another situation with the Note that it will be launched this year, after Samsung Galaxy S4, on 14th March, 2013.

Galaxy Note 2 had a quad core CPU and a 2GB of RAM that secured it a place in the top. So, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have at least the same amount of RAM, but I expect double! In terms of processor I anticipate it will be an 8 core chip.

In terms of processor I anticipate it will be a 8 core chip that will greatly help speed, allow running multiple applications simultaneously and, most important, to save battery power.

Regarding the operating system, it is most likely an Android 4.2 updated version. Samsung must always have a priority in increasing processing power, So I'expect some new setting that can do that.
This hybrid (Note) between a tablet pc and a smartphone, first launched in October 2011 includes a stylus pen which is used to introduce data with more precision, to make selection or to draw on the screen different objects, signs and commands. In this Samsung Galaxy Note 3, that will launched this year, the accuracy and usefulness of the stylus will be higher.
I believe it will not disappoint, because in the last two years Samsung had strengthened it's market position.

The design and size of Galaxy Note 3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs
As already predicted, launching this model will be marked by the much anticipated launch of Samsung Galaxy S4 on 14 March 2013. However, until now, nobody has a definite idea about the final look, only Samsung has all the details. We have so far only fans and users expectations and a lot of rumors about it, which is a good thing, because competition is good for business.

I personally hope that in the near future,  Samsung will give up plastic covers and use for manufacturing them other materials from the premium category, such as aluminum, for example, although it has to be solved the problem of weight resulted.
Another issue is related to sharpness: New Note will have a better resolution and a greater range of colors than the Galaxy Note 2: at least 1280 x 720 pixels and more than 16 million colors.
My question is whether once the enlargement of the display,it will not lose clarity. I hope technicians have already found a solution to this. Everyone expects a screen with more than 6.3 inches for Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Strong points for Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs
Today I have decided to share with you some of the latest news about this release. I Begin by revealing you my enthusiasm for technological leaps from one version to another, which greatly facilitate and beautify my life.

Korean company has already confirmed the launch of another Galaxy Note at Mobile World Congress,in February 2013, but did not give precise specifications about it. The most common and most credible rumors are about the launch of the Galaxy Note 3.
How will Samsung improve the next edition of Galaxy Note, here are some scenarios or customer expectations.

Maybe the manufacturer will even equip its devices with an operating system based on Java for his applications.From my point of view, this model will be a new reinvention of an existing model on the market. The previous version was a great success, but now probably the most attention will be drawn to the Samsung Galaxy S4, which will be released on March 14, 2013.
Going back to Notes 3, here are some of his strong points: regarding the display and shape, I anticipate that we will see a display of 6.3 inches and I want to see how Samsung is trying to incorporate edge to edge display to maintain compact display, also. Note was sold very well, so at this chapter are not fears.
The question is whether this version will be able to improve his position among competitors. In terms of aesthetics, it is known that Galaxy Note design was inspired by Galaxy S2, and Galaxy Note 2 from Galaxy S3. So I expect like Galaxy S4 to be a model of inspiration too. We will see on 14th March.

Higher expectations for Galaxy Note 3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will appear in a few months, in summer. Enthusiasm is worth it, because earlier versions have exceeded all expectations of buyers, even those of specialists in the business.
Such overlaps at launch with the release of the new iPhone model from Apple. That actually means competition, right?
Hardware specifications that will come equipped with, will exceed all that is currently on the market. Expectations are high about the RAM and the display.
However, it seems that the launch will be overshadowed by Samsung Galaxy S 4 which have generated more rumors than any Apple launch. I look forward two releases in the coming months from Samsung and I promise I will keep you updated with all the news I know. See you soon!
