It can be argued that Samsung pioneered the so called 'phablet' category of gadgets, when it first released the Samsung Galaxy Note back in 2011. Now any smartphone which has a screen size bigger than 5 inches is called a phablet. Although a phone this huge was considered to be impractical by many people, Samsung Galaxy Note I and II have been doing good business.
Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy Note III, which like its predecessors, sports a huge 5.68 inch Super AMOLED display. The Note III features a few significant design changes, such as a faux leather back instead of a plastic one, which greatly enhances the look and feel of the device. Samsung has stuck with the physical home button, along with capacitive touch back and menu buttons for now which is sure to put a few people off.
The Galaxy Note III comes with a 13 megapixel rear camera, which is the same as the one found inside Galaxy S4, and is definitely a great performer. The device is capable of shooting 4k videos, which makes it one of only three smartphones that can do that as of now.
Galaxy Note III comes loaded with a quad core Snapdragon 800 processor, clocked at 2.26 GHz and 3 GB of RAM, which easily puts it right on top as far as performance is concerned. Combined with a 3200 mAh battery, Samsung has created a worthy successor to the immensely popular Galaxy Note II which impresses on every front.
