We cannot deny that Samsung changed the landscape of smartphone. In September 2011, Samsung had announced a phone with a 5.3 inch screen and we all look weird and started looking for whatever it was that they gave designers to Samsung. But time has shown that it was the right way, and more and more high-end smartphones aimed at 5 inches as a standard size.

Galaxy Note makes its way to offer bigger screen sizes, and in Note 3 we find a 5.7″. The evolution of the range Samsung Note has gone from 0.2 to 0.2 inches, through the 5.3 “of the original Note, the 5.5″ of the Note II, and finally these 5.7 “of Note 3.

But there is something that stands out especially in the latter model, and incredible design in terms of economy of space. The Note 3 is more than 0.2” screen compared to its predecessor and still maintains a smaller overall size and weight of the Note II, an achievement that really is appreciated when we talk about as large terminals.

Design

There is a little change in the design of the Galaxy Note 3, but the two main ones are important and worth talking about them and highlight them, because it is so you can start to chart a new course in the design of Samsung and its smartphones, which we will see in the future with the successor to the Galaxy S 4.

The first thing that stands out as a novelty is the change in the design of the back, as it is now made of a plastic that mimics leather, and the truth is that it gives very premium finish. Initially the first images not call much attention, but the touch is nice and very well done. Frankly well thought out to the audience it is intended this terminal.

Multiwindow

One of the best ways to capitalize on the huge screen of Note 3 is taking advantage of the already exploited by Samsung multi-window function, which allows us to divide into two parts Note screen and use two applications at once.

The best thing is that you see this little video that shows the main characteristics of this function:

Other Functions

Although these functions and their sub-tools are some of the most outstanding, the Note 3 includes much more like the ability to write with the stylus directly on fields for entering text, selecting images automatically crop your profile or a completely renovated S Note.

Overall everything is to take advantage of the screen Note 3 and Android offers a completely different experience to what we find in other terminals. Each will prefer one or the other, either a pure Android like the Nexus 5 without any extras and advanced features offered fluidity and immediacy, or these types of tools to take advantage of a different form such as the Note 3. What is clear is that Samsung has worked hard, and although some do not ever going to use, others are really useful.

Camera

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 features a 13 MP camera that offers fairly good results. It is situated on the top of Android cameras at the time, but not the best. Good colors, contrast, focus very fast and a pretty decent job in low light is what stands out, but you lose slightly in post processing and image processing, thus losing sharpness.
