Rich Corinthian Leather

It's funny that a phone marketed to creatives manages to combine so many bad stylistic decisions- even for Samsung, who has a record streak of building really ugly stuff. Fake leather, fake aluminum, and chunky cheap plastic. Apple was raked over the coals for it on the software end, but at least they executed it well- this is just a hot mess.

But the new functionality looks killer. Multi-window is already awesome, and this makes it moreso. And the scrapbook function is brilliant.

Samsung has done it again!

Great article, thanks. I was already impressed with the rumored hardware. The new software features look very intuitive, I'm loving that square that you can draw to bring up a window on top of an app.
I can't wait for my contract to expire. The Note 3 will be mine!
Shut up and take my money Samsung.

haha. That watch is so rad!

Bravo!

Usually reports on Samsung phones/phablets from PhoneScoop are rough - there's usually a sarcastic comment used to describe the materials - so not having this type of "usual" critics and finding only good ones does make me feel that there's something very extraordinary on this device.

Good report BTW, I like how the information is based on how the apps feel/respond and device performance other than focusing on materials.
