The phone’s screen is crisp and very clear. I watched several YouTube videos and a preview for Iron Man 3.The bigger screen makes watching video a joy, and I can see myself watching movies on it instead of a tablet. The new phone’s screen resolution is far better on the Note 3 at 386 pixels per inch (ppi) rather than 264ppi on the Note 2. (By comparison, the iPhone 5 offers 326ppi.)
The phone’s 13-megapixel camera took clear shots, but it was slower than I’m used to on my iPhone 4S, the model from 2011. A processing alert pops up for a second while a photo is saving.
