Reviews Word on the street

Galaxy Note 3  vs 808 PureView 

It’s also much larger than the average sensor used in most compact standalone cameras, thus able to capture more photons on its surface, which makes for excellent low light performance.
808 PureView

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.
