Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is soon to be released in the market with brand-new features and hardware. Note 3 will come in two variants - the International Exynos and the LTE Qualcomm models. Are any of these models will suffer bugs and issues on the hands of consumers?
Samsung's Exynos octa-core chipset is remarkable when it comes to speed and performance. But devices such as Galaxy S4 suffered overheating problems due to eight CPUs actively running the device.
Eight-core processors are designed to divide tasking to avoid power draining on the device. The first four cores with less speed are effective on handling background applications while the next four cores are mainly performing for running applications and high graphics demand.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may or may not suffer from overheating which plagued the Galaxy S4 on its display and camera lens. Overheating can damage the internal parts of the device and may injure the user.
The TouchWiz UI is one of the heaviest user interface and default launcher among Android devices. So heavy that it can slow down overall performance and eats a lot in the storage space. Rumours suggest that Galaxy Note 3 features the latest TouchWiz seen on Galaxy S4.
Drawback of TouchWiz UI includes large storage space consumption, cluttering performance on the RAM and battery issues sometime reported by users. These negative effects may depend on the usage of the owner regardless how powerful the Galaxy Note 3 is.
Screen Display Cracking
Galaxy Note 2 users reported cracking and breaking of the screen due to accidental drop. Samsung Note phablets are huge and may slip depending on the gripping comfort. The reinforced glass type protecting Note 3 is designed to withstand scratches and even breakage.
However, if accidental drop occurs, the glass attached on the device may loosen out due to constant impact. It is highly recommended to use covers for increased protection and durability of your device - remember that Galaxy Note 3 is not perfect.
Not a Metallic Device
Even if Samsung improved the exterior design of the Galaxy Note 3, it is not 100 per cent metallic unlike with HTC One family. Owners should take good care of the device against bumps and drops by purchasing cover or bump guards to prevent damaging the corners.
In addition, dirt and dust may attract Note 3 so you must be ready for the cleaning kit and proper maintenance tools to preserve its elegant and beautiful body.
Samsung installed a 3200 mAh battery unit on the Galaxy Note 3 and it will be the first complaint once released. Try to be kind on your new phablet and use the power saving mode built inside the device.
Avoid enabling wireless connectivity 24/7 so that the battery may last within the day and saves you from complaining it. Do not install unnecessary or contradicting applications such as third-party battery savers or task managers which may affect the system and battery quality.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one remarkable phablet with tons of new features for multimedia, graphics, applications, music and more which you used take good of to make it last for Android 4.4 KitKat.
