Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Compared to Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Marginally more battery power
3.23% more battery power
Significantly faster CPU clock speed
4 x 2.3 GHz
4 x 1.6 GHz
43.75% faster CPU clock speed
Distinctly higher pixel density
45.32% higher pixel density
Modestly bigger screen size
3.64% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
More RAM memory
1 GB more RAM memory
Clearly more megapixels (photo)
1.63x more megapixels (photo)
Vastly higher resolution
2.25x higher resolution
Way more megapixel (photo, front camera)
5.26% more megapixel (photo, front camera)
A tad lighter
15 g lighter
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
1.10 mm thinner
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
Noticeably better video recording quality
2160 x 30 fps
1080 x 30 fps
2x better video recording quality
Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
A little narrower
1.50 mm narrower
ANT+ is a wireless protocol similar to Bluetooth Smart, and is very power efficient. It is mainly used for fitness monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors and cadence sensors to connect to other devices, eg. sports watches, smartphones and cycling computers.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
Notably smaller semiconductor size
4 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Higher GeekBench result
Higher GeekBench result. This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2015)
Supports slow motion video recording
Clearly higher memory bandwidth
6.40 GB/s higher memory bandwidth. A higher memory bandwidth means the memory can be accessed faster and therefore data can be retrieved quicker, having a positive effect on the performance.
Less body volume
15.45% less body volume
For easy multitasking and drawing
The S-Pen gives the user a great way to muktitask and input handwritten notes faster than they could type them, which in turn boosts the productivity of the phone.

Top Five Reasons for the
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Compared to Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Has stereo speakers
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Has a radio
It works as an FM radio with included headsets
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
A bit shorter
0.10 mm shorter
Has a stylus
A stylus lets you draw on the screen and take notes like with a pen
