It has a faux-leather backside that adds a more premium feel than the plastic Note II, and also measures a thinner 8.3mm and weighs 15 grams lighter than its predecessor.

Samsung built on its custom software for the Note by adding new features, including a radial menu called Air Command with a variety of options, inclujding Scrapbooker, Action Menu, Screenwrite and more.
