With a handful of smartphones, tablets and devices, not to mention copious amounts of mid- to low-range models, some with multiple variants, it is quite easy to get lost in the the world of modern-day mobile devices. Samsung, who is probably one of the greatest offenders, probably knows this too well and has put out an infographic that spells out in easy-to-understand images and marketing lingo the features of its latest masterpieces, the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone and the Galaxy Gear companion smartwatch.
The Galaxy Note 3 is, as the number points out, the successor to the Galaxy Note 2, and customers will wonder how different are the two from one another. A lot different, based on this image. Despite the larger 5.7-inch screen size, the Galaxy Note 3 comes out lighter at 168 grams and slimmer at 79.2 mm in width, making it easier to hold than the previous generation. It is also 1.1 mm thinner than the Galaxy Note 2. But as they say, less is more, and the Galaxy Note 3 does have more to offer, with 1 GB more RAM, a faster quad-core processor, longer battery life, and support for LTE-Advanced networks. And, of course, one can't ignore the latest Android 4.3 as well as the new S Pen Air Command features.
A smartwatch is a totally new concept to consumers, and one would presume that the Galaxy Gear infographic would contain more information. But alas, it shows only the basics appended to the Galaxy Note 3, which practically tells people what it really is: a glorified accessory for the smartphone. Still, users will be informed that it can be used to make calls, control media, view appointments, take pictures, and find your precious smartphone in case it gets lost. It also comes in six bright, except for black, colors to choose from. Hit the download link below to get the bigger picture. A word of caution, though, it really is big at 5.3 MB.
As they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so this infographic might be sufficient to give buyers an idea as the devices make their way to US carriers this month. Of course, if they need a more detailed explanation of the capabilities of these new devices, they can head on over to our review of the Galaxy Note 3 as well as our roundup of the Galaxy Gear.
