Is it a Phone, a Tablet? No, it’s a Note!

On September 25 2013, Samsung, one of the strongest competitors for electronics nowadays, presented a new electronic gadget called Note 3. The Note 3 has a 5’7 1080 pixel Super Amoled screen and an octa-core processor. Sounds fancy? The amoled screen is the is specially engineered by Samsung and allows the owner to visualize the screen better and with more ease. The octa-core is the processor for the Note 3. Due to the fact that there are 8 (octa) processors, the device functions in a speed that shames most other electronic devices. The Samsung Note 3 has a micro storage of up to 64 gigabytes. This makes the Note 3 perfect for people who likes to store lots of music and videos on their devices. Lastly, it also boasts a 13 megapixel camera which captures photos in clear quality. Although the specs and its technology seem beyond excellent, the Note 3 has failed to change enough to surprise the audience with the design. The only aspect that seems to be changed is its cover, which is made out of synthetic material to resemble leather.

The Note series started on September 1, 2011 with Note 1, which has a smaller screen of 5’3 inches than Note 3. It had a satisfactory visual technology with 800 pixels in addition to the Amoled screen. In addition to this, the processor had a dual core, so as to divide the work in order to allow the device to run  faster and smoothly. Afterwards, the Note 2 was released as a sequel on August 29, 2012. The Note 2 was a giant leap from the Note 1 because of its larger, 5’5 screen. The processor was upgraded to a quad-core (having four processors) which made the Note 2 faster than most electronic devices. Now, the Note 3 has stepped up to such a level that the best competitors for electronic devices will have trouble catching up because “the Note remains unchallenged in its category [with its excellent] Battery life, a brilliant display and top performance” according to the Engadget Review. Yet with other upgrades in the world today, the Note becomes largely overshadowed. Perhaps the new Note will ensue a greater recognition of the  brilliance of this technology.
