Samsung Galaxy Note 3: come see what's inside the box

0. phoneArena 17 Sep 2013, 03:00 posted on

At last, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has arrived at our office. Needless to say, we're super excited to spend some personal time with it, to see how well the new S Pen features work, to see how good of a camera its maker has picked, and to feast our eyes to that gorgeous 1080p screen it is boasting. But before we get to that, we're sharing with you, guys, this quick tour through the device's retail packaging...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Innovation is the actual start of a new category, the phablet category.

How about that for innovation? What has Apple done but to make the same phone 4 years in a row now. lol

I wouldn't say anything on the note 3 is exactly innovative. Hardware is incremental upgrades. New software is mostly useless stuff you'll use once to impress friends and then turn off. Doesn't make it a bad phone. Moto has the best innovation lately with their active notifications and the always on voice commands. IMHO anyways.

Active notifications have been done years ago in Symbian devices from Nokia. This is nothing new or innovative.

Well... PeApple used to say: 7" tablet would dead on arrival. Shamesunk make the first 7" tablet ever, Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000, not a big hit at the start, but now even Apple and peApple go for minipAd. And now Apple even make iPhone 5s "mini" : 5c?

You are the real poor peApple.

Better wait for GN4. Makes more sense to skip a generation.
Obviously, if you are gadget freak, then you buy anything you want!

Next Galaxy Note probably will be called "Galaxy Note 4" and their latest innovation for that would be: 4gb of ram, genuine leather back cover, new stylus design, and additional useless software enhancements (maybe it will be called, "water command")! Poor Samsung!lolz

"Poor" is probably the least educated choice of word regarding Samsung.

Now everybody kept their prices near to iPhones. Better option is to wait 3-6 months to lower the prices only if we don't run after new new devices.

Sammy and LG always brings and introduces new technology in their devices whether it is Bluetooth or USB or anything else.

Now go and buy a XZ & S4, it's affordable now than earlier. iPhone? No, never.

Are you sure samsung always introduce new technology? are you serious? yeah right.. fake leather, 3gb of ram, new stylus design, and air command are considered "new technology" by samsung and ignorant fanboys..

Most probably YES.

The IR port is pretty sweet and the massive, removable battery (which will probably lasts 20 hours of solid use) is also pretty awesome. Not to mention the big screen and expandable memory slot. Beyond that I don't expect my phone to shoot lasers... Yet. ;)

Yes they do. At least they develop it. Look at the display. Is it same like Note 2? What about bezels?
The SSD? Even Apple brag with Samsung SSD in MBAir

I'm going to guess when they get wore down and start to flatten maybe?

The Note 3 was underwhelming. No OIS, barely improved design and still the same old ugly touchwiz. Still better than the jump from Iphone 5 to 5s though.

Sad that is has 3GB of ram but no OIS.

No OIS is what killed it for me. Pretty much the only thing going for it was teh 3gb ram.

It was written OIS for some versions of GNote 3
