There seems to be a battle raging between two of North America’s top mobile service providers AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 went on the market since September last year at a cost of $700 EUR and the price has since fallen to about $450 EUR, however Wireless giants have taken the going price to a whole different level since they have dropped the price to an astounding $299 US. On Amozon.com AT&T is offering the hand set from as low as $199 US on contract . Verizon Wireless however was not about to lose this battle as they too dropped their cost to an astounding $149. US on contract.
The Galaxy Note family is credited with not only starting the phablet craze, but also resurrecting the stylus. The S Pen is no ordinary stylus though – the special screen digitizer and a button on the S Penwork their magic to augment the thumb-on-screen experience, and rival it in terms of speed and options.
Other than that the Galaxy Note 3 phablet continues the tradition of being the current generation’s Galaxy S phone on steroids – a large 5.7″ screen (in a body the size of the Note II), choice of Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420 chipsets, 2160p (a.k.a. UHD) video recording, USB 3.0 (a first on a pocketable device) and Samsung’s ever-growing list of software features available right out-of-the-box.
Here is a comparison video on the Note 2 and its predecessor.
