Samsung reveals the Galaxy Note 3

Samsung reveals the Galaxy Note 3

9/18/2013

This September has been an exciting month for mobile device owners. If you're looking for a new gadget to add to your collection - or to upgrade from your current smartphone or tablet of choice - you have plenty of great products to choose from. In a recent announcement, Samsung revealed the upcoming Galaxy Note 3, which comes packed with some highly attractive features you'll want to get your hands on.

According to Gizmodo, this new addition to Samsung's line of tablet-smartphone hybrids comes with a bigger screen - 5.7 inches, compared to the Galaxy Note 2's 5.5 inches - but is actually lighter than its predecessor. The screen is Super AMOLED with a 1080 by 1920 display. Additionally, the gadget has 3GB of RAM and runs on a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor. The battery is slightly improved over the previous model, at 3200mAh versus the Galaxy Note 2's 3100mAh.

If you love taking photos and videos, the Galaxy Note 3 might be an especially appealing choice. Not only does it come with a 13-megapixel camera, but its hardware can actually take 4K video, the source pointed out.

The Guardian broke down some other features, including the new addition of colorful faux leather backings (the phones themselves come in just white, black or pink). Even more importantly, the S Pen has undergone some changes, such as enabling Air Command, which allows you to hover over the screen to activate certain apps. Among those programs are Action Memo, which enables handwritten note-taking, and the similar Screen Write ability. With Screen Write, you can doodle or write comments on any screencapped image. Additionally, Scrapbook is a cool new way to save your favorite content for later by circling anything you like. The tool automatically puts the selected content into a page you can easily scroll through, which The Guardian commented is reminiscent of a Pinterest page. 

Among the other new Air Command-based features are Pen Window, which makes it possible to open a select number of apps by simply drawing a square on the screen. There's also an integrated search engine called S Finder that can browse through documents, chats and more.

Make a trade
If you're ready to trade in your current device for a Galaxy Note 3, make sure you choose smartphone buyback options that will actually get you the most bang for your buck. After all, getting the latest high-tech goodies will likely be expensive. With a ProtectCELL plan, you can get up to 50 percent of your gadget's full retail price back within a year, or up to 25 percent back from 13 months to two years.
