Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? Nope, it’s a phablet: the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 has arrived, equipped with its gigantic full HD 5.7-inch screen and stylus. It’s available now from Vodafone UK, so read on for all the details…
Samsung all but created the phablet category with its original GALAXY Note back in 2011, and two years on, it’s honed its craft down to a fine art: small enough to use as a phone and fit in your pocket, large enough to give tablets a run for their money, the GALAXY Note 3 is the ultimate convergence device.
Running the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on a blazingly fast 2.3GHz processor, it’s been designed to handle everything you can throw at it: its 3GB of RAM means you can multitask with ease, flitting between apps while grabbing shots from its 13 megapixel camera.
Best of all, a large screen makes space for a huge power reserve: the 3,200mAh capacity battery is big and that means a huge runtime.
If you’re concerned about the practicalities of using a device this size you needn’t be as, its software makes it a breeze. Samsung gives you a one-handed mode that shifts the on-screen keyboard within reach of one thumb or finger, and there’s a stylus that pops out of the side for scrawling directly on the screen instead of typing.
The new Action Memo feature even triggers apps and actions just by writing – you can ring friends just by writing out their name, while Pen Windows lets you open another app window on screen just by drawing it. The stylus itself is pretty clever too. It’s pressure sensitive, and you can use it to open a menu of options without even touching the screen, just hold it above it.
Of course, the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 is 4G-ready: choose one of our Red 4G-ready plans and you’ll be able to jump on our new network and upload all those pictures, videos and doodles instantly – not to mention making the most of either Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV as part of your plan Act fast, and you can take advantage of our #4GBonus too.
All in all, it’s jack of all trades, and master of them too, we think you’ll agree.
Tempted? The Samsung GALAXY Note 3 is available to order from vodafone.co.uk today.
