Now in its third generation, the Samsung phablet that marked the way with regard to devices with display over 5 inches confirms all its strengths ulteriormene strengthening them and making it even stronger leadership among smartphones(HTC One X Cases) in this category . Will he be able to repeat the success of its predecessors even on the market?

introduction

Among the manufacturers of smartphones that have been made on the world wide over the past few years have failed to match the success of Apple with its iPhone. Only one of the competing producers managed to actually emulate what has been done in the past 6 years by the Cupertino : We are of course talking about the Samsung , at this moment undoubtedly the most important rival for the colossus of the bitten apple . The growth of Samsung in the smartphone market has been so abrupt to overcome in volumes as proposed by Samsiung , thanks to the market success of the Android operating system on which Samsung relies largely of its own models .

With its own set of terminals of the Samsung Galaxy family has been able to get into the good graces of users through solutions that are technically advanced than the competition and a marketing strategy that , with the passage of time , has proved successful . With this approach, the Korean company has been able to achieve significant results both in terms of numbers related to the sales of its solutions both in terms of brand perception by the public .

 

Head of the family is the first Galaxy S Galaxy(samsung galaxy s3 cases), able in time to reach 20 million units sold. Then we find the Galaxy S II, the first real rival to the iPhone with regard to sales of almost 40 million units sold since its launch , dating from about 3 years ago, today. Success, the Galaxy S II, repeated in 2012 with the third descendant of the tribe or the Galaxy S III , one of the top selling smartphones ever , capable of reaching 60 million share of pieces distributed since May last year to now . In 2013, it was then the turn of the Galaxy S4 that at least for the time being , while remaining in the top positions regarding approval ratings , do not seem to have the expected success .

As regards today's review , however, our attention is directed in a particular way to another branch of the family of Samsung Galaxy , namely that of phablet that , with regard to the solutions of the Korean family , are identified with the name Galaxy Note .

 

The first exponent of this kind of solutions , which is also the first ever of its kind, called the Samsung Galaxy Note and the merit of having paved the way for many other solutions , although not necessarily at the Samsung brand , who followed him in these 3 years. Announced in September 2011, had received favorable opinions not just on the part of many professionals mainly due to the size of the display are considered excessive . Doubts and conflicting opinions that have been completely removed from the sales data which gave reason Korean company .

During IFA in Berlin last year was then announced the first successor of Galaxy Note or Galaxy Note II. Renovated in design and technical content was considered by many, and for several months , one of the best Android smartphones on the market. The dimensions much criticized by many at the onset have become the strong point of this kind of terminals that allow, thanks to its large display , perform operations on the terminals from the measures contained are decidedly difficult.

So here we come to 2013 and the third generation of the phablet Samusung . We speak of course of Galaxy Note 3 , the protagonist of the analysis that you can read in these pages as well as the ultimate smartphone family of Korean giant . Here are a sheet in which we compare the hardware equipment of Galaxy Note 3 with that of its predecessor and one of the main competitors , HTC One Max

As we can see from the data sheet shown above the generational leap from Galaxy Note Galaxy Note 2 to 3 brings with it a number of important changes with regard to their technical knowledge at the disposal of the last phablet house of Samsung . The home-made Exynos processor Quad 4 is replaced by a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800(best galaxy s4 case) , with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz and number of cores always equal to 4. Increase the RAM goes from 2 to 3 Gigabytes remains the same while the internal memory dedicated to the storage , equal to 16 Gbytes and still expandable via microSD, but it does not affect the performance of the terminal. Performance , in view of the evolution of SoC imagine significantly higher than its predecessor .

Best also the photo department : in Galaxy Note 3 was used the same camera that we find in the Galaxy S4 , a decided improvement over the already discrete module that we found last year in Notes 2 and Galaxy S3. Another important new feature is the support the USB 3.0 standard , which, as we shall see in the course of the review , it offers many advantages in the case of data transfer cable from the PC or from the PC.

 

Compared to the HTC One Max, one of the main competitors of Galaxy Note 3 , we find a slightly smaller display , 5.7 inches versus the 5.9 of the HTC model , size and weight much more content and a processor certainly more evolved. HTC One Max offers in fact inside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 , the same that we find in the Galaxy S4 and HTC One , while Galaxy Note 3 comes in range of SoC Qualcomm is a step above the newly cited Snapdragon 600 .

The potential to put on the top list of the best smartphones of 2013 there are then all this . In the following pages we will discover , analyzing smartphone in all its aspects , how many of these features are exploited.
