Galaxy Note 3 Price, Specs Worth It VS Galaxy S4, Says Release Date Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 price and specs are up for review now that the Galaxy Note 3 release date is upon us. But is it a good deal?

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs were rumored to have a fingerprint scanner like the iPhone 5S but Samsung shot down those rumors.

But it’s possible a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will feature better security according to the rumors. Still, the Galaxy Note 3 specs include “Fort Knox” software where security-sensitive apps and data can be protected against external attacks in a “Container” while still allowing remote connections to secure office systems. In addition, a Samsung feature called Find My Mobile allows Galaxy Note 3 users to locate and disable their stolen or lost smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 VS Galaxy S4

A review of the Galaxy Note 3 specs wouldn’t be any good without making a comparison to its closest competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S4. Both smartphones use a Super AMOLED screen producing a 1080 x 1920 HD resolution, although the Galaxy Note 3 screen size trumps the Galaxy S4 at 5.7 inches versus five inches.

You might say, “Well, wouldn’t that mean the Galaxy Note 3 screen isn’t as detailed for the size you’re getting?” Actually, the pixel density is 386 ppi and scientists estimate those with a 20/20 vision won’t notice a difference above 229 ppi based upon the average screen viewing distance, never mind the Samsung Galaxy S4 screen. But you will need a S Pen in order to use the Galaxy Note 3’s Air Command mode, which gives access to special features.

The Galaxy Note 3 specs for the CPU and GPU are enhanced. While they’re both quad core CPUs, the Galaxy Note 3 CPU is running at 2300 MHz while the Galaxy S4 is 1900 MHz. The Galaxy Note 3 system memory is 3 GB running at a higher speed versus the Galaxy S4 using 2 GB.

The Galaxy Note 3 battery size is 3200 mAh, which gives it 25 hours of talk time over the Samsung Galaxy S4’s 17 hours provided through a 2600 mAh battery. The built-in storage is 32 GB versus the Galaxy S4’s 16 GB.

A Galaxy Note 3 vs Galaxy S4 specs comparison on things like Bluetooth 4.0, WiFI, external storage, and the camera are pretty a tie, although the Galaxy Note 3 camera features continuous autofocus and its video recording capabilities allow Ultra HD/4K recording while the Galaxy S4 is limited to HD. The Galaxy Note 3 also has USB 3.0.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Price

Like pretty much all smartphones, the Galaxy Note 3 price depends on whether you buy the smartphone with a contract or not. For example, the Galaxy Note 3 price is $299.99 at Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint but T-Mobile is selling the Note 3 for $199.99 based upon a 2 year payment plan.

The full retail price for the Galaxy Note 3 is listed as $724.99 on Amazon although you might try shopping around to find special deals for less than $700.

Do you think the Samsung Note 3 price is worth it for the specs you’re getting?

    It's an awesome device. Granted the size is tough to deal with but the screen, features, specs, camera, etc. are just awesome. I would love it to be a tiny bit smaller and the voice quality (speaker) to be better but besides that-so far so good.
