Real Smartphone
By saurabh | 24 Aug 2014 | 24 Aug 2014
The most important thing that must be considered while buying a smartphone is its hardware.A smartphone should be evaluated in terms of how capable its hardware is. Every other thing comes secondary. This phone is top of the line even after 11 months of its launch. Octa core processor and 3 GB of RAM are the biggest reasons to buy this phone.It will respond to every hard thing you throw on it.The phone is powerful, slim , elegant or you can say its a true business class phone with all the capabilities of a tablet or laptop. The full HD super AMOLED screen is just amazing.The performance of the phone is so smooth. With this strong hardware you will get a bunch of features which are real useful.The S pen is amazing. Just have a hands on this surely gonna love this.

Allrounder Note 3
By Deepak Sonar | 31 May 2014 | 31 May 2014
My 5 stars for this phone are for its allround ability to surprise the user at it's every use. Its a great looking phone with its own swag. Its for cool dudes. Special shoutout for its great camera. You just can not point out any negative thing in its camera. With its cool makes people turn at you and have a close look at your phone. Gaming is as usual at it's best. The S pen needs a special mentioning. Its for users who wants a complete feel of a Notebook rather... a digital Notebook. All the described sensors works perfectly but you would like to avoide using all those sensors and its trics when you are out.I don't understand why people rate Samsung's Touchwize so badly or negatively. I find it way better than the xperias, the LGs,...rather I find it the best. The processor and it's working is good but Samsung's Exynos version in all the indian variants is a bad move..India is a fastly growing mobile market and one would want to catch the market by giving its best service to the Indian users. The phone gives you the best of Samsung and if you are good with paying some extra for this beauty, then this phone is a beast. The phone is projected for the businessmen and for their industry..but I feel it is very much useful for students like me..who likes to have everthing at their fingerprint...and S pen is a real help for writing quick notes. I am using Note 3 for last 4 months and I call it...'The Beast'. It's my go for it if you are looking for an Allrounde phone.

Awesomeness personified- A device to use to believe
By Rizwan Azad | 6 May 2014 | 6 May 2014
After having owned the original Note aka Note I and then it's succesor Note II, picking Note III over other phones was quite an easy decision for me. But once I got a hold onto the device I was a bit disappointed. Why? Because initially I felt that the leap from Note II to Note III was not as BIG as it was from Note I to Note II. Putting my skeptism aside I began using and exploring my Note III. The design of the latest iteration is more in the line with the original Note than the predecessor Note II. Phone is more rectangular at the edges and surprisingly lighter than the previous gen Note II . What Samsung has done incredibly well is that they have increased the size of the screen to 5.7" but the over all size of the phone remains same. Screen is typical Samsung Super AMOLED full HD with a resolution of 1920 X 1080, with colors popping out making text and images crisp and clear. Watching videos and playing games on a 5.7" screen with such vibrant color is pure joy. I would concede that this is one of the best diplay by Samsung. The phone house a 13 MP camera coupled with an LED flash. The camera clicks some excellent photos in outdoor conditions but the low light photography is a bit disappointing and could have been better. Also, lack of OIS is certainly not a good move. Few minor grudges apart, this camera is still one of the best in the business. The phone shipped with Android Jelly Bean 4.3 which I later upgraded to Kit Kat 4.4. Amongst all the bells and whistles of Note III I like the S-Pen aka stylus and Multi screen the most. Stylus has some pretty nifty and useful features, a quick note taking is one of them. Multi Screen makes running two, or even more Apps quite easy and switching from one screen to other is quite easy. Under the hood, it is powered by Samsung's Exynos Octacore processors clocked at 1.9 GHz and 1.3GHZ and supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB(expandable upto 64 GB) internal memory which makes operating the phone quite a smooth & buttery experience and haven't seen any glitch, lag or stutter yet, barring few rare occasions. Powered by 3200 mAH user removable battery it easily lasts me an average of 18 hours on moderate to heavy usage, and takes around 3 hrs to recharge the battery fully. Phone does occasionaly gets heated but nothing serious though. Call quality is crystal clear with very few drop calls experienced so far. Bluetooth , WiFi and 3G all works perfectly fine latching and locking the signal quickly.Speaker is located on the bottom of the phone which pumps out loud enough sound but tends to distort at max level setting. Music in a good pair of headset sounds pretty good with ample volume and bass. Absence of FM radio is a noticeable omission. It's a perfect all round device especially for those who enjoy multimedia and gaming on the go. A niche but almost perfect phone. At Rs. 46000 approx, it's a bit costly though. After using for mor than 5 months I can proudly say that I made a good choice

It has a stunning display and blazing fast processor.And it comes with Android 4.4 (kitkat) on launch.The deal breaker is its price.
