Comparison : Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs Samsung Galaxy S4

By -

Samsung introduced earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 , the third edition of his best-known tablet phone  and comes with new and improved features. As we are accustomed, the stylus S Pen is the star of the party, but there is also a significant leap in terms of technical specifications. More screen, more processor and better camera.

Galaxy Note 3-vs-Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the other high-end brand, in fact regarded as the flagship of the South Koreans. This model also has more pointers systems today and despite being older, is still one of the most complete Android smartphones that can be found. What are the differences between the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Samsung Galaxy S4? We see a comparison .

 

Display and Design

The most obvious difference with the naked eye is the size , and here the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is imposed by providing a panel with 5.5 inches of surface, while the  Samsung Galaxy S4 has an area offive inches , which is not wrong. The two share the resolution FullHD , but the compact size of the flagship of the brand makes the density is higher, and therefore sharper panel. However we move in figures as high as the eye can no longer distinguish the points that make up the panel, which incidentally is Super AMOLED in both cases. They also have a sheet of glass resistant and fits the tone system and contrastaccording to ambient light and the application that we are using at the time.

Samsung continues to maintain the same design language characterized by curved shapes, plastic housing and the typical silver bezel that surrounds the device. However, the huge screen of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 makes your form is a little more square while the Galaxy S4 has a more smoothed. We also note that the back cover of Note 3 leaves a smooth surface to make way for a texture that mimics leather, giving a notebook look very interesting. The difference in size also makes tabletófono weight increase, reaching almost 170 grams, 50 grams more than his opponent. Anyway the Samsung Galaxy S4 is also a large device, but next to this model will get to see small .

Camera and Multimedia

The  Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has raised the bar of the camera and now stands at a level very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4, but with some differences to be discussed later crushing, first go to the similarities. The two have a thirteen-megapixel BSI sensor, LED flash, autofocus and two-megapixel front camera. Moreover, they also share features like Dual Camera, Drama Shot, Sound & Shot, Best Photo, Best Face, Panorama and sports mode . To this the  Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a smart stabilizer that prevents earthquakes, both to take pictures as videos, and video going. The new Note Range to capture quality footage in 4K or Ultra HD at 30 frames per second , almost nothing. But in addition, can do the same in full HD at 60 frames per second and 720p HD at 120 frames per second,delivering results in slow motion in great detail. The  Samsung Galaxy S4 classical content with recording full HD at 30 fps, which is not bad.

The media profile both also is a draw, both formats as special features. This included the presence of the system Group Play, by which it is possible to play the same video or song in several compatible Samsung smartphones.

 

Power, memory and operating system

The power has never been a problem in the high-end Samsung, in fact it is one of the items in which the brand gets harder. compared the two models are available in two options with different processors.On one side are the versions with chip eight-core Exynos, although I must say that the model integrates the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is newer and therefore more quickly and efficiently . On the other hand there are models with quad-core chips, and again on March Note anticipates a Snapdragon 800, while the Galaxy S4 carries a Snapdragon 600. The memory RAM is S4 two Gb and the tabletófono amounts to three Gb, another point in its favor.

Speaking of memory, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is available in three capacity options: 16, 32 and 64 GbBut Samsung has decided to remove the 16 Gb version in Note 3, because it does not leave much space for the user. Where we do agree on is the possibility of expanding the memory card 64Gb MicroSDmaximum.

How could it be otherwise, the operating system of these two models is Android , however the serial Note 3 will Android 4.3 while the Galaxy S4 will have to wait until October to receive the update . In this sense they are very close, as are some of its unique intelligent features. In both cases we find systems like Air Gesture, Air View, Stay Smart, Smart Smart Scroll or Pause, all aimed at improving the user experience and offer new forms of management. They also come with some very practical tools totranslate (S Translator), control mobile by voice (S voice) or find travel tips (S Health). But here we must recognize that the Note 3 takes the concept of intelligence to a new level with full battery of tools focused on your stylus, the real key is special about this product.

Samsung has included many developments in this direction with the Galaxy Note 3 so that its S Pen is becoming indispensable. For example, we collect information from various sources to Scrapbook , make screenshots and write about them , draw a window to open a new application bringing multitasking to another level and more. For all this we can say that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 provides aricher user experience than other smartphones.

Connectivity and autonomy

Technical draw connections profile, which incidentally is the most complete that we can find. Samsung has nurtured its two most popular high-end with the most advanced of the moment and do not lack anything at all in this regard. We started with the Internet, which can be carried out using WiFi or mobile network, whether 3G (21 Mbps) or 4G (150 Mbps). We also have a number of systems to share content without using wires or duplicate the display are the standard DLNA and WiFi Direct. On the other hand we see an antenna GPS with Glonass satellite access, wireless port Bluetooth 4.0, chip NFC and an infrared port.The physical connections consist of an output headphone port and a microUSB that lets launch a high-definition signal cable MHL .

Samsung is committed to enhance the autonomy of its products by introducing very large batteries. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 integrates a lithium battery of no less than 3,200 milliamps, which promises a very long time as long as we give normal use the device. For its part, Samsung Galaxy S4battery takes 2,600 milliamps which can be turned on 17 hours in use and up to 370 hours on standby.Without knowing the specific results of autonomy, Note 3 is anticipated as a tough opponent to beat in this section.

 

Conclusions

The two models analyzed are very thorough and probably also the best in its class, but when compared to each other’s differences that tip the balance in favor of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 just a matter of time. The last model is newer South Korea, and because it takes advantage of a more powerful processor and more complete camera, specifically for 4K video recording and also the option to record in slow motion, no doubt his strong point. The stylus also expands its capabilities, making it more versatile and perfect for creative users. But this attachment is itself a very definite type of product, thus no advantage over the S4, it is simply marked their difference, as the size of the screen. We see that the connections are tied, the profile media and much of the unique features that integrate.The decision between the two should be based on the needs. If we want a smartphone very large panel pointer and the Galaxy S4 is a very interesting option. But if what you want is something that allows us to interact more dynamically with the stylus undoubtedly Note 3 is the best bet right now.
