Samsung created a new category when it launched the Galaxy chú ý.

The Galaxy Note"s strength is the S Pen, the intelligent stylus that accompanies the device & allows users to bởi more than just navigate the user interface & scribble notes. With the chú ý 3, Samsung claims to take the experience at the next level. We try khổng lồ find out if its still the best phablet in the market, in our Reviews. Build/ DesignThe Samsung Galaxy Note 3 retains the same design that gave sầu the cảnh báo series of smartphones their own identity. When we first lay our hands on the phone, it reminded us of the original lưu ý. The cảnh báo 3 looks much more similar to lớn the first-generation cảnh báo than the chú ý II, which was more curved.The lưu ý 3 is essentially made of plastic but Samsung has cleverly disguised the finish of certain elements khổng lồ give sầu the smartphone a premium fit and finish. Despite its huge kích cỡ, the phone doesn"t feel heavy & fits in the pocket in a better manner, if you compare it with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Having said that, it"s still ungainly when it comes lớn singe-handed operation, though Samsung has tried khổng lồ find a solution for it.

The chú ý 3 is available in three colours - Jet Blaông xã, Classic White, & Blush Pink, và we got a Jet Blaông chồng phone as our Review unit.The front of the phone is dominated by its 5.7-inch Full-HD Super AMOLED display. The bezel is narrow on the left & right sides và unlike the Galaxy lưu ý II, the Galaxy Note 3 is not beveled above và below the screen và is flatter, sporting a textured dark grey finish. The front of the phone still features a physical Home button & two capacitive touch buttons for Menu và Bachồng controls. The different sensors, front camera, notification light và earpiece grill sit above sầu the lưu ý 3"s screen.The phone"s front panel is surrounded by a chrome frame, which gives a premium feel to lớn the Galaxy Note 3, but the edges sport a faux-metal finish with a ribbed pattern.The power button is on the right edge of the Note 3, volume rocker on the left, a 3.5mm headphối jaông chồng & Infrared receiver on the top & a new USB 3.0 port sits at the bottom aloneg with a small speaker grill & the slot for the S-Pen stylus. It"s good that Samsung has placed the power button on the side và not on the top, in line with other large screen phones, but if you have small hands you"ll still find the location a little cumbersome.

The back of the Galaxy chú ý 3 is another place where Samsung has made some major changes to give sầu the phone a refined look. It sports a leather finish, complete with the stitching, and we"ll have lớn say that it looks really cthất bại to lớn the real thing and Samsung deserves some credit.The baông chồng also features the 13-megapixel-camera lens, with the LED flash right below it. The Indian version of the lưu ý 3 just features the Samsung branding at the back. There"s a small speaker outlet towards the bottom.The back is removable and hides the micro-SIM card & microSD thẻ slots that are stacked on top of each other, và the battery. Samsung has been able lớn please people who advocate the use of a removable battery và memory card slot, once again.Overall, the cảnh báo 3 looks much more refined than the cảnh báo II with its leather finish baông xã & good weight khổng lồ dimensions ratio, though it still sports the same thiết kế.Display
As we mentioned, the Galaxy chú ý 3 is in a way Samsung"s other flagship device, other than the Galaxy S4. All flagship devices now tick the full-HD display checkmark, and keeping with the trkết thúc, Samsung has also upgraded the screen lớn full-HD. The screen"s also bigger by 0.2-inches at 5.7-inches. The Galaxy Note 3 comes with a full-HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080x19trăng tròn pixels packing 386 pixels per inch. The Galaxy Note 3"s display, is aao ước the best displays we"ve sầu seen so far. In our use, we found that text, images & videos appear extremely sharp, with vibrant colours. Reading text and browsing the web was also a pleasant experience.

The only downside to lớn the display is that colour reproduction is not very accurate, và as with other AMOLED displays, they appear a bit oversaturated. Just like the Galaxy S4, Samsung offers what it calls Adapt Display, lớn optimise colours according to ambient light conditions. You can choose between four manual modes (Dynamic, Standard, Professional Pholớn and Movie) và automatic modes if you select the Adapt Display option. The phone also offers the option lớn adjust the screen tone automatically to lớn conserve battery power.The display was not very reflective sầu & sunlight legibility was great. The viewing angles on the phone are excellent.The lưu ý 3"s big full-HD display enhances the user experience by leaps & bounds.Software / User Interface
The Samsung Galaxy chú ý 3 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the lakiểm tra iteration of the OS (at the time of writing this review) và TouchWiz Nature UX, Samsung"s own UI that includes custom apps in addition to lớn a skinned interface. While some people prefer stochồng Android to lớn any kind of skinning, Samsung"s TouchWiz UI has been panned for employing big, glossy and cartoon-like icons và menus. The intent might be khổng lồ make the UI user-friendly, but it ends up looking anything but pleasant. The Galaxy lưu ý 3"s UI has been optimised for the S Pen, a stylus that offers enhanced functionality with the device"s built-in digitiser.

This even works for speed-dial contacts, lớn view Inhỏ labels, scrolling lists & for tracking progress bars while watching videos. You can choose khổng lồ either use your finger or the -Pen or automatically switch khổng lồ whichever one it detects.

The major feature of the chú ý 3 that integrates the S Pen is Air Commvà. The -Pen that comes with the cảnh báo 3 features a button that can be pressed to invoke an Air Command thực đơn on the screen when you hover it over the screen. The Air Command thực đơn brings kích hoạt Memo, Scrapbooker, Screen Write, S Finder và Pen Window options. One can also insert content, và contacts & view additional options while hovering the S Pen around the display và pressing the button on the S Pen. It does make things a bit complicated but if you"re someone who loves khổng lồ create nội dung & mô tả it in a jiffy, you might like this feature. We found the additional S Pen button shortcut features a bit overwhelming though.

Elaborating on the Air Commands on the cảnh báo 3, the Action Memo lets you jot down things và turn them inlớn actionable items. For instance, you can jot down a number and save sầu it or Call it through the Memo.The "Scrapbooker" Air Command feature lets you add content from the screen including pictures and YouTube videos và put additional notes.

You can read more about these apps in our Galaxy S4 Review.Camera
The Galaxy Note 3 features a 13-megapixel rear camera that takes excellent shots in daylight & good artificial light. We found that pictures clicked with the phone had good amount of detail và looked very cthảm bại lớn life with accurate colour reproduction. We found pictures shot with the chú ý 3"s camera to be a little better than the ones shot with the Galaxy S4.Low-light shots are an area of weakness. Pictures come out distorted và noisy if it"s too dark. Strangely, Samsung has not included a Night Mode setting in the phone"s camera phầm mềm. The phone can"t match the low-light performance of the Smartphone HTC One và the iPhone 5. The Galaxy Note 3"s 2-megapx front camera does a decent job when it comes khổng lồ Clip chats but pictures taken indoors were grainy at times.

The Note 3"s rear camera is capable of recording 1080p đoạn Clip & performs well. It can also capture Slow motion, Fast motion and Smooth motion videos. It also offers đoạn Clip stabilisation khổng lồ let you take steady shots. The phone"s rear camera performs well in the đoạn phim capture department. It"s worth pointing out that unlượt thích the SnapLong 800 variant of the lưu ý 3, the Exynos 5 Octa-version sold in India does not offer support for 4K video clip recording.The Galaxy chú ý 3 also adds the Galaxy S4"s new camera tricks including Cinemagram like Animated phokhổng lồ mode; an Eraser mode to delete moving objects from 5 consecutive photos; Drama shot, which takes multiple photos of a moving object and merges them all to denote action; and Best face, which allows selecting the best face shot in group photos, in addition to lớn the usual Burst mode that takes đôi mươi continuous shots, và HDR mode and Panorama mode. It also allows you to shoot through both the front & rear lenses simultaneously và put a stamp-sized photo of yours in a photo lớn that you"re clicking with the rear camera.

You"re not likely to find all of these tricks useful in the long run, though.Performance/ Battery Life
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is powered by Samsung"s Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor which is essentially a mix of two quad-core processors- a 1.9GHz Cortex A15 quad-core processor and a 1.3GHz Cortex A7 quad-core processor that work together lớn optimise processing. It has 3GB RAM onboard, & a Mali T628 MP6 chip for processing graphics. Our Review unit had 32GB of expandable built-in storage, out of which 24GB was available for our use.With Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the overall experience of navigation through the interface was extremely impressive, thanks khổng lồ all the power under the hood. We did not experience any lag at all on the Note 3. We had no issue while launching apps, playing games, scrolling web pages or switching between apps. Performance wise the Galaxy Note 3 is a power horse, compared khổng lồ the other Android flagships in the market at this point in time.The Galaxy cảnh báo 3 offers Chrome in addition khổng lồ the mặc định browser. The mặc định browser does not offer Adobe flash. It also offers a reader mode for reading text heavy website pages. We were able to play full-HD clips on the cảnh báo 3, though some formats including .mov, were not supported natively (this was easily fixed by the use of third buổi tiệc ngọt apps). The speaker outlet on the phone delivers good quality sound at average volume levels.

Gọi chất lượng on the Note 3 was great, và the phone is able lớn latch on lớn cellular networks even in weak signal areas. Notably, the Galaxy cảnh báo 3 lacks FM radio functionality, which will surely disappoint many, especially in our Indian audience.The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a 3200mAh battery, & in our usage, it lasted us a full workday. We charged the phone in the morning (at around 9AM), & with medium to lớn heavy usage, including đối chọi.5 hours of phone calls, two gmail accounts with push notifications, playing some music, taking some photographs, Twitter notifications & WhatsApp chats, the phone lasted a good 9-10 hours. It"s worth pointing out that we had turned off Wi-Fi & auto-brightness, & the phone was hooked to lớn a 3G network with the screen brightness at the highest màn chơi. Altering these settings might help in running the phone for a longer duration, depending on your usage pattern.Verdict
The Galaxy chú ý 3 is indeed the best big screen phone or phablet available in the market, at this point in time. It packs in the lademo hardware, a brilliant full-HD screen, better build unique & a smart stylus that makes multi-tasking a breeze. At a price of Rs. 49,900, the Galaxy cảnh báo 3 offers almost every imaginable feature that a modern smartphone could offer. But is it really for you?If you"re looking for a big screen high-end điện thoại thông minh và only want to lớn settle with nothing but the lademo hardware, the Note 3 is a great device. It makes even more sense if you lượt thích scribbling notes, collecting và organising content that you come across, or doodling, in other words, going beyond just pure nội dung consumption. The S Pen"s Air Commands also take interaction with the features and UI of the phone, lớn the next màn chơi.
*
We"re a bit disappointed that Samsung chose khổng lồ offer the Exynos version of the lưu ý 3 instead of the Snapdragon 800 one, as it misses out on 4K đoạn phim recording which would have sầu made the phone future proof for at least some time.If you"re fine with last year"s hardware & don"t want to lớn shell out a lot of money, the Note II is still available, và with the software updates, offers a good phablet experience. Other devices you can look at include the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, though it doesn"t offer a good camera (lacks LED flash as well) experience và feels a little awkward to lớn carry due khổng lồ its dimensions lớn weight ratio.Price:
