Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a breath-taking cellphone launched many years ago, which counts with an exceptional 2300 MHz Quad-Core processing unit, a big size 5.7 inches display, and 2 cameras, a 13 MP back-facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. That's everything we have to say? Not at all, it's just the beginning of a detailed review.

The Note 3 is incredibly thin and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.33". This cellphone is a very compact phone, given that it has a 5.7" display and it's just 5.95 inches long and 3.12" wide. This cellphone feels much lighter than what you expect from a phone like this. Samsung sells this phone in three colors: black, pink and white.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with a great 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5.7-inches display, providing this device with a great image quality. This display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Samsung decided to power this device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip, holding a very fast 2300 MHz Quad-Core processor with a big 3 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering generally uses lots of CPU time, so it has a 450 megahertz Adreno 330 graphic processing unit to help handle those graphic tasks. An amazing feature of the Note 3 is its large 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, more than enough to install lots of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

This phone has two cameras, a 13 MP back camera and a 2 MP front facing camera. Although it's 13 mega-pixels might appear incredible the back camera has a very little 0.326797" sensor it takes darker photos than it should. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can also film 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 120 frames per second (4 times slower than normal videos). This camera also has a large number of great features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, digital image stabilization, face detection shooting, smile detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This cellphone packs amassive 3200 mAh Li-Ion battery, enough to provide this device with an impressive battery duration. Samsung afirms this phone has a 528 hours stand by time and a 25 hs talk time.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 offers wi-fi connectivity (and it can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE great performance connectivity and also HSPA+ data connection, a lower speed 4G variation and 3G fast data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers and it works with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This cellphone also features a wide variety of interesting features as Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Infrared Port, Bluetooth (provides communication with other phones, computers and accessories) and GPS, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Note 3 is being sold for 320 dollars, quite expensive for a phone this level. No matter if you are looking for a work cellphone, you love taking pictures, will use it as a gamer cellphone or are looking for a social cellphone, you will probably be very happy with this cellphone.
