Sadly its not the Android 5.0 Lollipop update everyone is waiting for. Instead all three handsets will remain on Android 4.4.2 after the update.

Samsung, like many other manufacturers are hard at work readying Android 5.0 Lollipop for their top shelf devices.Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are expected to be updated to the next version of Android, but the following video and screenshots give us a sneak peak of Lollipop running on the Galaxy Note 3.





When Samsung launches their Lollipop update, it will be customized with the company's TouchWiz user interface as demonstrated in the screenshots and video. The experience will differ from what we have seen on stock Android devices like the Nexus family and even Motorola's handsets. However Samsung users would find their transition quite comfortable. 

At this point the update still maybe inconsistent and unfinished, but Samsung will hopefully iron out the experience and have Lollipop ready for their devices by early next year.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Video Comparison


Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Apple has entered this year's smartphone market with not one, but two new iPhones. The regular iPhone 6 aims to take on other flagship smartphones while the iPhone 6 Plus is Apple first phablet, which aims at devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. While Samsung already has a successor around the corner, lets see how the Apple iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 3 compare.



Despite its recent #bendgate issues, the iPhone 6 Plus is a beautifully crafted device with a premium build, bright and accurate screen, and an impressively thin 7.1 mm frame. The Galaxy Note 3 may not aachieve the same wow factor for its plastic body, but it does offer a replaceable battery and a microSD slot.

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with excellent camera, which excels in low-light and video capture, thanks to its large pixels and optical image stabilization (OIS). Samsung offers an equally impressive camera, but OIS is not in the cards for this device.

Apple's phone also supports a record number of LTE bands, for a truly globetrotting experience. Meanwhile Samsung includes features like split-screen multitasking and its one of a kind S Pen experience which sets it a part even in the large screen device category.

Samsung has been dominating the phablet segment for years, and has a well established offering in place. Apple has done an excellent job, in terms of offering a large screen device but needs to allow users to do more with the larger screen real estate.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for Sprint receives Android 4.4.4 software update


Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for Sprint

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for Sprint is now receiving the Android 4.4.4 update. This will likely be the last Android update to the Note 3 before it ventures into the world of Android L later this year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 receives update with Download Booster and KNOX 2



The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is now receiving a software update which brings new features previously exclusive to the Galaxy S5. One of those features is KNOX 2.0, Samsung's secure enterprise mobile platform and the other is Download Booster, which boosts the download speeds on your device.

The update is already rolling out in select markets like the UK (as always, it’s a gradual roll-out, so you might need to wait a few weeks until it arrives to your region), and it’s available for the Snapdragon 800-powered Note 3 version.

Samsung KNOX allows companies to better handle users (BYOD) bringing their own devices to work. KNOX is basically a platform that strengthens your phone’s security on all levels - from all the way down in the kernel to the apps. With a secure device, companies can save money purchasing separate work phones (and tablets) for employees, and instead allow them to use their personal phone, but securely, without leaking sensitive company data.

The Download Booster feature allows users to download files quicker by combining the power of their cellular (4G LTE in the Note 3) connectivity with their Wi-Fi connection. This maximum speed will be of particular value for large files that you need to download in a rush.

The update is being pushed OTA (over-the-air) and is reportedly around 185MB in size. Make sure you are connected to your Wi-Fi network if you want to avoid data charges and make sure that your battery is fully charged before you install the update.

Samsung has a device to suite just about every need and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 aims to please users who want the largest screen sizes on their smartphones. While the is not meant to suite the same niche, its premium design will make any smartphone use stop and take notice.



Even though the Galaxy Note 3 is around six months older than the One M8, the latter is still the more affordable of the two. The Galaxy Note 3 is priced at $300 on-contract, and $725 contract free, while the premium built One M8 is priced at $200 on contract and $650 off-contract. While Samsung and HTC fans can argue over which is the better of the two devices, new users should try and understand their requirement with their smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Video Comparison


Samsung Galaxy S5Samsung Galaxy Note 3

While we don't consider this a valid battle, the following video will compare the Samsung Galaxy S5 with its own sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Both devices are aimed at very different users - while the Galaxy S5 aims to pack as much power while remaining portable, the Galaxy Note 3 breaks past the barrier of portability in favor of productivity with its S Pen stylus and value adding apps.



Since they are not meant to compete against each other, its hard to point out which of the two is the better smartphones. While the Galaxy Note 3 may have the advantage in screen size and battery life, its sheer size is clearly not the more portable device.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3

At the end of the day the choice will come down to personal preference as they will offer you a near identical experience aside from subtle differences that make them unique. However if you are thinking about purchasing the Galaxy Note 3 we should remind you that the Galaxy Note 4 is due later this year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for AT&T receives Android 4.4 KitKat software update

Samsung Galaxy S5 camera compared with the Galaxy S4, Note 3 and Lumia 1520


Samsung Galaxy S5 camera

The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 16MP ISOCELL camera,compared to the 13MP camera on last year's Samsung Galaxy S4. You get a reasonably large 1/2.5" sensor, which is larger than most Android phone sensors, only giving way to the 1/2.3" sensor found on the Sony Xperia Z1. Samsung has also managed to cram in 16 million pixels, instead of 13 million ensuring that the pixel size remains at 1.1 microns.

The ISOCELL technology, however, decreases the cross-talk interference between adjacent pixel cells, which bleeds light meant for one pixel, into the neighboring pieces. This allegedly overcomes the problem with stuffing many small pixels close to each other, which some argue is the reason behind the artifacts that often appear with Sony's 20 MP photos from the Z1, for instance. Samsung also explained that the pixels in the ISOCELL sensor have 30% larger well capacity. This means that each individual pixel can receive more light before saturating itself, which results into a wider dynamic range, and better color representation.

In addition, Samsung claims the fastest in the industry 0.3 seconds shot-to-shot times with the Galaxy S5, and the camera interface got a number of extra features, like the Selective Focus mode, that you see in action on the right. Also, the camera on the S5 shoots in wide view 16 MP mode by default, while the full 13 MP resolution of the S4, for instance, produces photos in 4:3 format.

However without an optical image stabilization module, the low-light performance of the Galaxy S5 might be called under question here. Luckily, an abundance of real-life camera samples with the S5 just appeared, putting the 16 MP ISOCELL sensor through its paces in various scenarios. We have the camera tested under indoor, outdoor, and night conditions, as well as some macro samples.

Nokia thinks Ellen should have used a PureView at the Oscars


Ellen's blurry selfie

Samsung was one of the major sponsors of tonight's academy awards. The company took the opportunity to debut their first Galaxy S5 ads during the award ceremony, but also made sure they outfitted the host, Ellen Degeneres with a Galaxy Note 3. Ellen would first take a selfie of herself on stage followed by one circled by some of the attendees.

The first once appeared on Ellen's Twitter feed with the hashtags #Blessed #Oscars #Blurry and Finish smartphone manufacturer Nokia was quick to catch on to the last hashtag and tweeted the following message



Nokia's smartphones come with optical image stabilization (OIS) which does away with blurry photos by balancing the lens, even when the users hand shakes.

Samsung's marketing machine was in full swing at the Oscars, just like it was during the Sochi Olympics, or in NBA games - putting big Note 3 phablets, and other Samsung gear, in everyone's hands for the world to see. With all eyes on last nights oscars, Samsung definitely got the global exposure they wanted, so you cant blame Nokia for wanting to be a part of it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo officially announced


Samsung Poland has officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The handset features a 5.5 inch display with a 720 by 1280 pixels, Samsung's S-Pen stylus, an 8MP camera, 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, and a hexa-core processor with 2GB of RAM. You get a 3100 mAh battery powering your device and the faux leather back cover, which is quickly becoming a standard for Samsung's devices.

The new phablet come in two variants - The Galaxy Note 3 Neo 3G and the Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE+. The '+' at the end indicates that it supports LTE Category 4 with 150Mbps download and 50Mbps upload speeds. But other than the connectivity options both devices are identical.

The handsets run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. Its a little disappointing that Android 4.4 KitKat has not been included, especially since the latest version of Android has been around since last year.

Samsung hasn't revealed the pricing for these phabelts but they did mention that they will be launched globally starting February and that they will be available in black, white and green. Its safe to assume that they will be offered as a cheaper alternate to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
