The Note 3 Neo's display size is very conducive to multitasking, and when you add the S Pen apps to the mix, the handset becomes in a league of its own.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo

Granted, we could live without some of that software, including the TouchWiz UI itself, but the pen software is top notch, Samsung's Multi Window split window multitasking is the best in the business and there are several enjoyable creature comforts like Air View.

Sure, it would have been better if it had 1080p resolution, but 720p still manages to deliver enough density to guarantee a comfortable and pleasing viewing experience.

We feared battery life might not be up to much thanks to the full HD, 5.7-inch display which adorns the front of the Note 3, but we were pleasantly surprised.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The S Pen glides a lot easier across the screen, the responsiveness of the Note 3 is excellent and with the display being so near to the glass, this is as close as you'll get to actual handwriting on a mobile phone.

A nice feature we enjoyed using while recording was the ability to take pictures, as the camera shutter key stays on screen even when you've started rolling.

In terms of extra functionality, you can expect all the bells and whistles that come with Samsung's homemade interface overlay, like Smart Stay, which keeps the screen on while you are looking at it, and the multi-window mode that can run two different apps on a split screen.

On a 4.5 to 4.7" phone, one could easily argue that 720p is plenty good, but at 5.7", 1080p is a must to achieve really smooth text and sharp looking photos.

It may be big, but the full HD, 5.7-inch display is fantastic and the Super AMOLED technology makes everything pop from websites to movies.

Playback quality is really good with crisp textures and rich colours making for an excellent movie viewing experience.

Thanks to the quick settings panel in the notifications bar you can easily toggle Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, mobile date, NFC and the wireless hotspot at pretty much anytime without having to dive into the full blown settings menu.

The Gmail app is the same as you'd find on any Android phone, with a clean, simple layout making for an intuitive application.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
Samsung's ChatOn service looks to take on the likes of BBM, iMessage and WhatsApp in the instant messaging game and while the application is well laid out and attractive enough, the reality is not enough people use it.

Samsung's camera UI is excellent, and it's based on the Galaxy Camera's UI, and is the same as the GS4.
by MobileTechReview (Oct, 2013)
Samsung offers an abundance of shooting modes like HDR or Panorama, arranged in an easy to flip through carousel, as well as plenty of color effects you can apply to your pictures and videos.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
A single LED flash just below the camera lens on the rear of the Note 3 is there to help you out in lower light too, plus a 4x digital zoom helps you get closer to the action - but image quality does suffer.

The Galaxy Note 2 is still a fast phone with a good looking and large display and the camera is pretty good.
by MobileTechReview (Oct, 2013)
If you want a big screen smartphone (really big) and a digital pen, the Note 3 is your machine.
by MobileTechReview (Oct, 2013)
Combine that with the big display and you get more words per page than on a smaller screen phone (without resorting to 6 point fonts).
