Did you pre-order a Galaxy Note 3 through Verizon? Chances are that your device has already shipped and should arrive right on time for the Thursday, October 10 launch. In the past, we have seen pre-orders arrive a day before devices hit store shelves, but Big Red seems to have timed these shipments just right. At least one reader is showing an estimated delivery day of this Thursday. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Note line is something of a worldwide phenomenon. Here in the States we certainly have the Note cult, but overseas the phone and tablet hybrid enjoys very good sales. When the Note 3 launched last month, users were quick to find that once they activated their device in one country, it was SIM-locked to that region afterwards. They were understandably annoyed. Luckily the developers at XDA have our back with a workaround for rooted users. (more…)
The Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung is available on AT&T and Sprint starting today, but Verizon customers will need to wait just a little bit longer. If you haven’t seen our full review of the Note 3, you can see that here. To sum up the review, the Note 3 is a fantastic phone for anyone looking to upgrade to a larger device.
The phone is a specification powerhouse, sporting a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera that takes amazing shots, a gorgeous 1080p display, and the phone features a ton of useful S-Pen software to go along with the stylus. (more…)
Last month, it was reported that Samsung would announce a brand new device with a curved display during the month of October, and according to a recent statement from Samsung’s CEO during a Q3 financial call, the device could be announced as soon as next week. Further speculation points to the idea that it could be an extremely limited curved-display Galaxy Note 3 (review here). This has yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but if that is the case and you thought the Note 3 was already too awkward to hold, imagine it with a curved display. (more…)
The Galaxy Note 2 from Samsung was a very successful device, with millions of users falling in love with its massive display, excellent battery life, S Pen integration, and non-stop A+ performance. While the size of the device might scare a few people away, there is now a dedicated group of folks who can’t imagine having anything smaller in their pockets. Back in early September, Samsung introduced the newest member of the Note family, the Galaxy Note 3, giving Note 2 members a reason to upgrade and others a chance to reconsider their fear of tablet-phone hybrid category.
The key things we kept in mind while putting this review together were the subtle differences between this device and the Note 2. The Note 3 features a larger 1080p display, up from the Note 2′s slightly smaller 720p display. The Note 3 also comes packed with a beefy Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM, up from the Note 2′s 2GB of RAM and less-powerful quad-core processor. Other little things to note are changes to the camera, overall hardware enhancements, and misc. S-Pen software additions.
Without further ado, let’s get to it. This is our Galaxy Note 3 review. (more…)
AT&T announced this morning that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will go on sale both online and in stores on October 4. Previously, AT&T had only confirmed that they would carry each device, while also opening pre-orders. Now we have a firm date, which is this Friday.
The Galaxy Note 3 will be available at $299 on new 2-year contract or $35 with AT&T Next. The Galaxy Gear is a flat $299.
With the imminent release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on carriers across the U.S., today seemed like the perfect day to push out our tips and tricks video for the device. In past episodes of this series, we stuck to a “20+ tips and tricks” limit, but there are so many new features in the Note 3 that we had to extend it beyond 30. And truthfully, these 30+ quick hitters are just the tip of the iceberg – this phone is packed full of features that would probably require two or three more videos to cover. (more…)
