The latest additions to Samsung Galaxy's family has just landed in Malaysia this morning. This time it is not just an introduction of a new phone, Samsung has excited the world with the first generation of smart timepiece- a Samsung Galaxy Gear, that currently works best with the most-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9000 and Galaxy Gear grand launch in Malaysia
allowed me to have a quick hands-on with the phone and watch.
Dimension: 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3 mm (168g)
Fiddling with the new gadgets, I am impressed that Note 3 is only 8.3mm thick (1.1mm thinner than Note 2), at the same time being smaller and lighter yet the 5.7 inches super AMOLED touch screen is larger than the preceding generation with only 5.5 inches.
I was comparing my Galaxy Note 2 (on left) with the latest Note 3 (on right).
I love the way the Galaxy Note 3 appears sleeker with a larger screen display.
Unlike Note 2 which is more prone to fingerprints, the back cover of Samsung Galaxy Note 3
features a textured leather, which enables a better comfort of gripping.
The improved S Pen is another great improvement in Note 3. Once the S Pen is pulled out, the Air Command appears on screen to give you options to draw and doodle around, but also place apps (more than one) on parts of the screen while you're browsing the app drawer, homescreen, browser, etc. The S Pen is now a genuine multitasking tool.
All thanks to its high-capacity 3,200mAh battery and Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) powerful Quad-core 2.3 GHz processor, Note 3 is now faster, last for long hours and therefore truly a device for multitasking. Incorporated with a robust 3GB RAM and the latest in LTE technologies through its CAT4 Carrier Aggregation, the GALAXY Note 3 delivers significant speed and power for everyday usage.
Samsung KNOX Privacy Safeguard
For a secure mobile experience, the GALAXY Note 3 comes with enhanced privacy and security protection provided by Samsung KNOX where you can store security-sensitive applications and data inside a protected "container" with no worries for data leakage.
Afraid of losing your smart phone? No worries, Note 3 now has an improved Find My Mobile feature that allows people to disable the phone when it is stolen or lost, and then remotely track or erase the data from their lost or stolen devices.
Samsung also introduces the GALAXY Lifestyle Rewards where you can enjoy different content and services with free trials, discounts and complimentary offers. Some of the exclusive rewards include TM WiFi, Dropbox, Evernote, MPHOnline, The Star and more.
Another spec I find it very important is the 13MP rear camera with Smart Stabilization and high CRI LED flash. I've experienced how awesome the pictures I took during concerts using Galaxy S4, now Note 3 has even better capability to produce sharp, vivid images including under low light and moving-object condition.
Colorify your Galaxy Note 3 with the metallic back covers!
...or with the colorful S View Cover!
Ultimately, I feel that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear are the must-have devices
to make everyday task easier and more enjoyable to complete!
