With the Samsung Galaxy S5 now out, buyers across the globe are wondering how the premier Android smartphone compares to other key players in the mobile arena.
Interestingly though, with big screens currently all the rage in the smartphone world, as well as its traditional Apple, HTC and Sony competitors, one of the Galaxy S5's biggest rivals is its Samsung-born sibling, the Galaxy Note 3.
Released in October, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 offers a number of custom features differentiating it from the Galaxy S5. Chief of these are its larger 5.7in Super Amoled 1080x1920 touchscreen and dockable S Pen stylus.
The larger screen combined with the S Pen stylus makes it easier and more pleasant to use a number of Samsung's key productivity applications, like S Note. S Note is a note-taking application that lets you scribble notes on the smartphone and save them to your Samsung, Google Drive or Evernote account.
The question is, whether these productivity upgrades are enough to beat the Galaxy S5's new internal components and software. For an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 check out V3's full written reviews.
