Samsung Galaxy Note 3 preview: ask us all you want to know about it!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 preview: ask us all you want to know about it!
Currently, there are few smartphones hotter than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It is here to succeed last year's Galaxy Note II, bringing lots of goodies to the table, such as a super-fast processor, upgraded camera, and an even larger Super AMOLED screen – all attributes that place it right in the category with all the other Android high-ends. 

Having that in mind, we bet that many of you are eager to test the Galaxy Note 3 personally – to feel the leather-like finish on the back cover, to check out the new S Pen features, or to experience its smooth performance delivered thanks to the handset's capable silicon. This, however, won't be happening until Samsung's new phablet is launched – the Galaxy Note 3 release date is set for September 25 internationally, while the US carriers will get it at a later date. Of course, a week or so isn't that long of a period, so the wait is definitely bearable. But in case you're of the impatient type, 7 days may seem like forever. That's why we thought we'd help out.

Feel free to ask us anything you'd like to know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and we'll answer your question to the best of our knowledge. Just keep in mind that the answer you're looking for could already be mentioned in our Samsung Galaxy Note 3 preview, so you might want to read that first before posting. The comments section below is all yours, guys! Expect your questions to be answered within several days in a new post.

It should be illegal to put a device like this near a blender...

I want to see a 4K video sample and a slow motion 720p@120 fps shot by this beast.

4K video sample is nothing less than stellar, although a gimmick.

Not really, 4K will become the standard in the near future, I mean you can go & BUY a 4K HDTV at this very moment.

It's more like future proofing.

4K TV's won't be the standard for another year or two at the rate and cost they're being offered for. Yes it's great for future proofing, but it's a little too early to support it. As of now, I'll classify it as a gimmick than a feature.

A gimmick comes and goes, it NEVER becomes the standard. 4K is just the evolution of the HDTV. Just because it's new & STILL in it's infancy doesn't mean it's a gimmick.

It's good to be ahead of the curve, & that's no gimmick ESPECIALLY when it's going to become the norm.

I think you misunderstand the term gimmick.

Remember those 3D phones from a couple years back? Now that was a gimmick. 4K is DEFINITELY not.

About.*

Maybe not today, but tomorrow, it is future! Not all people are buying phone for one or two year, some are buying it for three or four years and it will be a future proof for them, people may keep 4K videos for a future. And feature is coming, almost every day we can see news about various new devices wich in one or another way support 4K video.

Also 4K TVs are already on sale, so how it is a gimmick? For 4K TV owners it is gimmick?

Benefits:

Higher quality, better image, more detail. Better than current 1080p resolution.

If it wasn't better then why even invent it.

It's like saying we should have stayed with the Model T, & never invented Ferrari.

Tech moves forward whether you want it to or not. Evolution of tech is never a gimmick.

Just because it's the not the norm doesn't mean it's a gimmick. I remember a time when they said land line telephones would never get replaced by mobile phones. Can't really say that now can you.

Also they said the internet was a gimmick. Now it's the norm. 4K will be the norm way faster than the internet became the norm.

On a big screen like an 8' screen the benefits are obvious. My Samsung projector upscale everything to 4k including Blu-ray and the picture looks much better.

It's extremely ugly compared to a beast like the Z1. Add HTC One max and Nokia 1520 and this doesn't stand a chance. Plus the uglier still touchwiz makes it lag and the cheap quality of plastic, as used in other samesung flagships makes it feel bad in the hand. Overheating will melt that plastic in your hand. To answer your question, yes it blends and yes it's an extremely bad device, but if you get fooled into specs that don't matter at all, buy this cheap, mid-range looking (and feeling) device. If you want good value for money, go for Sony Z1 or Lumia 1520 but best wait for the One Max. Just my opinion.

It's incredible you know so much about a phone before you've demoed it in person.

Sony Z1 -> Better Camera, water proof, better materials but the GN3 is much superior in terms of specs: speed, RAM, ROM, sPen, software, battery, expansion, customization, dev. community support (xda)...

Lumia 1520: The specs are uncomparable better in the GN3, besides: Windows Phone 8???

One Max: Snapdragon 600. The GN3 is much much better in all aspects. Besides - HTC is the worst manufacturer to provide support or ROM updates. (But I shall say that despite limited in ters of specs, the One is beautiful)

Let's not argue purely subjective aspects like appearance because we can disagree (and do), and still both be right.

The rest of your screed is completely foolish. When the Note3 releases, it will be the spec champion of the mobile phone world, at least briefly. Everything you say exhibits a complete ignorance of the Note line. These phones are light, bright, colorful and powerful. They don't get hot under normal circumstances.

As for the back cover melting, I've never heard of it happening... ever. I think you're just trolling.
