True it can't beat Samsung in features (no one can lol), but it sure has 32gb standard + micro sd slot, the big beautiful screen, massive battery, slim design, and a smooth wp os experience with lots of nokia bonuses.

S-Pen alone is a reason the Note 3 is above all other phablets on the market.

IT cant be clearblack, if it is IPS LCD. :D clearblack=almoned
lcd= TFT, IPS, RETINA and other marketing gimics, that means the same, but just updated tech. purewiev camera also means nothing, if you would write aparature, minimal focal distance, sensor size and tech, that would mean something.

Actually, it IS ClearBlack. ClearBlack is independent of the technology of the screen itself.

if you look at it from a different perspective, pa may have seen the note 3's display as a benchmark for other displays to beat.

Clearly you neither read the text nor did you watch the video. The article writer noted that in this screen test the Nokia easily beat the Samsung - something a flippin ant could see and rationally reach the conclusion of.

He also noted that he can't wait to see if it holds up in one of their own tests.

In other words, preliminary results look very promising, let's see if it lasts. If you don't think that's unbiased then I don't think you know what that word means.

Screen and custom software. Nokia has a problem giving a honest demo.

Last round was faking camera footage taken from a SLR camera to be their new phone now faking the screen demo.

Well, it does not matter windows 8 phone is not a good buy yet at least for me.

Nokia is the best in Display and Camera (808 and 1020) without a doubt. Give credit where its due instead of trolling.

it was taken with DSLR but they proved that video taken with 920 was as stable as DSLR's so your point is pointless :))

You've been on this site long enough to know that NOKIA didn't make that ad, it was an ad agency they hired, and no where did it say it was the 920's camera in use.

You can troll harder, or get your facts straight and stop trying to find fault for no reason

Defending Nokia to the bitter end... Or should we start calling it Microsoft phone.

I buy what ever that gives me top value and right now that is Samsung which happens to be the world top selling brand.

Truthfully i am grateful for Nokia fans for holding the fort. Competition gives Samsung the motivation needed to offer customers like me value for our purchase. Thank you.

Fail. Adapt Screen is not turned on for the Note 3.

Do you watch the video? He says he uses max brightness in Note 3. It's the same. The adapt screen will set the brightness to max if the screen is exposed to sunlight.

73. redmd (Posts: 1368; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)

No its not the same. Max brightness in Adapt Screen is brighter than the manual Max brightness. Displaymate found that one out.

manual an auto max brightness are same

NO, there's a HUGE difference between manual maximum and auto maximum brightness.. it's less than 400 nits in manual, and exceptionally high 660 nits in auto mode.
This is the expert analysis which confirmed that:


..and I can attest to it from my personal experience - the outdoor visibility is vastly superior in auto mode.
Really a major difference.

Not to put down Nokia's display here which is amazing, but this article and the test are simply not correct, which is downright inexcusable.
