Compared to the Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy Note 3 is familiar, yet different. It’s an upgrade in every aspect, thanks to the use of 3GB of RAM and the brawny Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU (or Exynos 5 Octa, depending on where you get yours). The display, a bit larger than before, also bumps the resolution from 720p to 1080p; this is one of the best displays we’ve ever seen.

Visually, the two are similar, save for the much smaller bezels on the Note 3 and the reduced depth. The S-Pen is still there but with new software features. In terms of in-hand feel, the Note 3 feels just as plasticy as its predecessor, though perhaps a bit higher quality. In nearly every way it could be , the Note 3 is an improved, more refined Note 2. Check out or video to see for yourself just how these two stack up:
