Bestriding the gap that separates tablets and smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the latest Samsung offering in this hybrid space. An impressive piece of kit, the Note 3’s larger screen makes it a great choice for work and business purposes, while also serving well for entertainment and leisure. In fact, it comes with a whole slew of features that make the Note 3 a really appealing piece of technology.
First up is the Note 3’s screen, its most obvious and prominent feature. It’s larger than the Note 2 but, thankfully, just as slim – this is no brick like the mobile phones of old, but more like a slimline tablet with the accompanying great visuals. The 5.7″ screen is in full HD, meaning you’ll get a brilliant experience from whatever you choose to watch. It also puts the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on firm ground when it comes to using this hybrid tablet-phone for business purposes, since it offers plenty of space to work in – preferable to the rather cramped confines that some smartphones offer with their tiny screens. This twins wonderfully with the Note 3’s stylus, a key part of the Note package.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has taken several steps further forward in the integration and functionality of the stylus too, turning it from a useful tool into a great one. Just like the S4, the Note 3 is experimenting with air command, letting you use the stylus without ever touching the screen; the stylus itself comes with a button that lets you take advantage of all sorts of new features and options for doing precisely this sort of thing. They’ve gone further than that, though, implementing common sense features like the pen window (letting you simply draw on new windows with the stylus) and offering an improved Scrapbook that makes organising your content even easier than before.
All this means the Galaxy Note 3 combines wonderfully with the roll-out of the new 4G connectivity across network carriers. The ease of use that the Note 3 offers means you’ll have plenty that you want to share, while the improved screen will have you wanting to watch and stream content. 4G offers far faster speeds for such activities, so you’ll no longer be left waiting idly for results to hurry back and forth. This hybrid of tablet and Smartphone is a great opportunity to really take advantage of all that the 4G roll-out has to offer; 4G coverage is rapidly expanding, so be ready!
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a great piece of technology that ably fills the gap between more slimline smartphones and tablets.
