Some of the time, you need more than what a mere smartphone or tablet have to offer. So mobile device manufacturers have taken the best of what smartphones and tablets provide and combined them into a new device coined the “phablet.”

In fact, the phablet is currently beginning to overtake the tablet in sales, becoming the new surrogate for the tablet experience. One of the most popular phablets is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Read on to find out more about this amazing device:

Device Size.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 offers a high-definition screen display measuring 5.7 inches, which means it is the perfect size for viewing photos or videos.  Because of its overall size and weight (measuring 6 inches by 3.1 inches by .33 inches and weighing in at a mere 5.9 ounces), the Galaxy Note 3 provides the added convenience of being able to be more easily held in one hand than does the bigger and heavier tablet.

Internal Specs.

The Galaxy Note 3 offers 32 GB of internal memory – perfect for loading it up with your favorite music and movies – and runs the Android Jelly Bean 4.3 operating system.


The Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with the same powerful camera as its flagship smartphones. The camera comes standard with a sharp 13-megapixel sensor and LED flash. Take smart photos with this delightful camera providing a range of shooting modes. The images are clear and crisp and offer vibrant colors and details.

The Phone.

Perhaps the most important feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the fact that it has what tablets don’t: it is also a phone. Now, you don’t necessarily have to carry two devices with you. At any given time, the Galaxy Note 3 provides the utility of the tablet and the connectedness of the best smartphones.

The S Pen.

One of the most important features of the Galaxy Note 3 is the inclusion of Samsung’s noted S Pen stylus. This makes taking notes that much easier. No longer are you limited by the virtual keyboard. With the stylus you are able to write directly to the phablet as you would with a regular pen and paper. You can also convert those notes you have taken into to-do-lists and them port them over to Evernote for preservation.

Advanced Multi-Window.

Like many of Samsung’s newer devices, the Galaxy Note 3 comes with the ability to view two applications at once. This means you do not have to close one app to open another, but can actually drag and drop content between them.

There are a great many features included in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. We have only scratched the surface. Perhaps most important is that when you combine the Galaxy Note 3 with service provided by T-Mobile, you get to enjoy all of these features with the peace of mind of having access to one of the premier 4G LTE networks available. Moreover, T-Mobile provides affordable plans with the freedom from having to sign confusing contracts. You receive unlimited talk, text, and data with no overages, ever. You also receive unlimited international data and text in more than 120 countries with unlimited international texting from the U.S. to almost anywhere in the world.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the perfect device for people on the go. It combines the features you have come to expect from the best tablets with the reach of the smartphone. And with the promotions offered by T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the perfect device to keep you connected to friends and family and to provide access to the entertainment you enjoy.
