It has been widely reported that Samsung is cheating the benchmarking software. I wonder if GSMArena applied the necessary modifications to prevent the device from detecting the benchmark software used.
Well yes you were wrong ..The Note 3 doesn't improve on the Note 2s speaker, or audio quality. In amazed Gsm haven't mentioned that. .
Please provide a comparison between snapdragon version and exynos octa version and battery tests for the exynos octa.
Indian users need to see the difference and is it worth buying the octa version
First of all, take a bow GSMA. Superb review!
No words to describe about this jugger-note! Sammy has done it again. From screen to compactness from looks to performance, just about everything is fantastic. The new 4k video recording, the advanced S-Pen and its tons of new features.
Yet again samsung has set the rules for what takes to be a phablet. Well done sammy. Kudos.
Oh this review is making me one really happy buyer today :)
The cherry on top of it - that no other review online has - is the audio quality section.
Who else noticed that this boy HAS THE BEST AUDIO QUALITY MEASURED TO DATE on Gsmarena?!
im i have a huge hand .. limit to it ... Lady or small hand .. forget it ...
The battery test & performance is for Snapdaragon version, how about Octa version.
Wow, I have the note 2 and love it butt this note 3 is just insane. Beautiful review, this is a must have.
how about uploading an untouched 2160p video sample alongside the 1080p one?
AnonD-29473, 04 Oct 2013Would recommend that GSMArena test the brightness of the AMOLED screen again: that rating of 3... moreThat is the measurement for manual brightness setting. The screen can actually go much higher than that, but only on automatic mode when needed in sunlight. Displaymate also touched on this in their review of the screen, where they also called it the best phone screen in existence.
AnonD-100398, 04 Oct 2013The best moment while reading the review...."..the note series does'nt break any rules .... moreDitto, when the GN2 came out I thought the 3 would really struggle to improve much on that.... looks like I was wrong. Mine should be here in a few hours.... :-)
thz z a beastkiller... wanna see the exynos variant's performance too...
I am being serious here after just buying S4 MINI in that a Note mini would be brilliant..Plus the Note line up (besides having top spec) have top quality in audio/cam/screen and so on,the mini version would have to keep these qualitys even tho spec would be reduced..Even though spec would be reduced there is no reason why they cannot keep the quality audio and high quality tolerances.
One question to reviewers please:
Is there a difference in quality between the two versions (SD & Octa)in:
Because SD uses own audio chip that is not the same in Octa
We heard that Octa version uses Sony senor, but SD version doesn't.
Can you elaborate on that.
And is there any other difference between the two versions.
The best moment while reading the review...."..the note series does'nt break any rules ....but make them ....." made me feel very proud owner of NOTE II . btw 32 gb mem ,3gb ram and super amoled full hd screen is a hugh plus and does justifies its price...NOTE III- FTW. Here i am coming ......:)
