Finally Samsung came to know where it is lacking behind,Samsung used cheap glossy plastic (which it used to call HyperGlaze layer) in it’s all high-end Galaxy devices which made consumers go towards phones by other manufacturers provided Aluminium unibody at same price.To combat this, Samsung uses a new leather-effect design in the Note 3. A faux-leather textured rear and delicate stitching on the edges of the back panel giving user a premium feel but as it is a synthetic leather,it is not durable.
Samsung focused on S Pen and introduced air commands in which you get air commands option as soon as you hover S Pen on Galaxy Note 3 or press the button on S Pen.
Keeping in mind regarding multi tasking Samsung also introduced a new feature Pen Window by which you can quickly access other app while using the app you are already in.
Although Samsung has done major improvements in Note 3 but there is no new innovation or feature to die for, It’s just bigger version of Galaxy S4. By increasing screen size Samsung made it almost impossible to use it with single hand and also synthetic leather used is not durable but 5.7-inch (386 ppi) Super AMOLED screen is sharp and mind blowing. If you are a Note 2 user then you can miss this upgrade. Many more cool Phablets are yet to come like HTC One Max and Nexus 5.
