Samsung has unleashed the Galaxy Note 3 at long last, but how does it stack up its predecessor, the Galaxy Note II? We’re going to find out.
Hands down the Note 3 is a beast of a phone. With 3GB of RAM, and a 1.9GHz processor (at minimum), added in with the improvements of Android 4.3, this phone should be screaming fast. We won’t know until we get it in our hands for extended testing, but it definitely appears that the Note 3 will leave the Note 2 in its dust in just about every way possible.
Take a look at the specs and let us know what you think.
