If you have ever wished you could somehow try out a phone's fancy new features first before purchasing one without even walking to a store, then Samsung's new Galaxy Note 3 Experience app might just be your thing. That is, of course, if you're curious about Samsung's latest Note phablet, or as Samsung would like everyone to call it, "fonblet".
The Galaxy Note 3 does have things to be interested in, such as the high-end hardware, which includes a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or an octa-core Exynos in some regions, 3 GB of RAM, a 3200 mAh battery, and, of course, the star of the show, the S Pen. But aside from that, it also packs software features, mostly revolving around the stylus, that, in some ways, could make you forgive or forget about Samsung's bloatware and customizations on the device. You might even fancy, or abhor, the faux leather back cover that minimally addresses criticisms about the manufacturer's plastic fetish.
But knowing specs is one thing, seeing features in action is a whole different ballpark. But in the absence of an actual device to play with, Samsung's app might be the next best thing. The Galaxy Note 3 Experience provides an interactive introduction to the best features of the device, letting users see and, to some extent, feel what the features do. It also has some videos to give users a better idea of what they're in for if the make a purchase. And when they do, they can also use the app to see what accessories are available for the device.
The Galaxy Note 3 Experience app is available for free on Google Play Store and can be installed on any device running Android 4.1 or later. It does, however, recommend at least a 1.4 GHz processor and a screen resolution of 1920x1080.
