Samsung Posts Official First Look Videos For Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear

The announcement of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will dominate headlines for the next few days and with good reason, the Note 3 is an excellent upgrade to an already awesome large screen smartphone. While the jury may be out on the Galaxy Gear, there’s promise in smart watches and wearables of the future and Samsung just fired the first shot in what’s likely to be an all-out battle in the coming years.

First things first however, let’s take a look at these devices in action thanks to two official videos posted on Samsung Mobile’s YouTube page. The first one is specific to the Galaxy note 3, with the second video adding in some Galaxy Gear action. If you want to skip through and just see the Gear, skip to 12:50. Obviously there’s a big Samsung slant here so you’ll want to wait for full reviews before making a buying decision, but the walk-through will certainly show off every feature of what you will get for your hard-earned dollars.

    The Galaxy Note 3 will definitely be the perfect way to cap the 2013 year.

      I dunno dude I’m not really excited for this one like I was the Note 2. I think I’ll just hang on to my Note 2 for now and see what else comes out, because honestly, I don’t see another phone out right now that I think is much better than my Note 2…

      • Noor Mahmoud

        I couldn’t disagree more. I jumped the boat and sold my Note 2, running Jedi master 16 and everything, for this. Unfortunately, I have to go a couple weeks without a phone lol.

        • Chris

          Wow! I actually just flashed Jedi X17 last night (pretty good but I’m tempted by CM). Just not enough motivation for me to switch over and lose all my stuff…this phone’s working fine so I’ll see what the future holds…good luck without a phone!

    Waiting for the next nexus

    Can’t wait… I like the new look.

    I think that Samsung is making a big mistake by releasing this phone so late after a intro on Septenber 4th. I think that they are letting many other phones get the jump on them, including the iphone.

    • Noor Mahmoud

      What? You do realize that releasing a phone in the same month as its announcement is incredibly fast, right?

        1 word Apple

        • the2000guy

          This is amazing because we are going to see head to head the sales of the iphone and the note 3 to see which one attract more.

        • KingCobra

          It won’t be close. Remember last year the iPhone 5 totally sold out preorders in less than 24hrs and moved over 5 million in one weekend.

        • taron19119

          the iPhone will have a major head start over the note 3 Apple will release the iPhone a week after its announce the note 3 will not be released in the US until October

        • vinnyjr

          Don’t think the people who buy the iPhone are the same who want the Note 3. Two different phones for different people.

    The 299 price tag for gear seems a bit steep. The design of the watch is a little chunky too. I think I will wait for google to release their watch.

    • the2000guy

      If you think is expensive, wait until apple reveal their smartwatch and the price tag. You will say that samgear is cheap. And that’s good, I want to see what google have stored for all of us. And more if a new nexus is expected to be reveal soon.

      • Eugene

        Apple’s and Samsung’s prices will mostly likely be similar. Just look at samsung’s tablets. They’re about the same price as ipads. I am definitely excited for google’s watch. I think they can also make it much cheaper. I honestly don’t think that a smartwatch should cost more than 150.

  • vinnyjr

    I like that package. Nothing at all I dislike. The phone is slick looking. Don’t understand the haters at all. The phone has it all, Looks, specs, big specs, battery , camera, internal memory++, sd-card, processor power. After market accessories will be a knock out. This phone is the best in 2013-2014 IMO. My only wish is T-Mobile carry the 64gb version. Thank You T-Mobile.

    The editing options looked cool. I like the multi text windows with easy drag and drop file/img sharing. I agree this is a good way to close out 2013 but I also am not dropping everything for this. I do feel the s pen functions could have been kick up a notch if samsung really wanted me to be envious. The long press and mini swivels to select might be difficult to someone with tremors or pd.

    At least they took a step back from some of the more janky features like scrolling your page with your eyes (more like an uncomfortable head nod) or other useless things. I say all this in full support of innovation and still appreciate some of those things.

    Still, this is a step forward. Notice how swatch was coined on some bs and now we can’t use it on some equipment that might better suit the handle?

    the features on this Note 3 are interesting but there are nothing to be impressed with, imho i have seen and used devices that are really impressing on the hardware and software department according to the year released, Samsung just wanted to be the “first” one to release a device ahead of the competition, going ahead from Apple and the other competitors i understand that is all part of their strategy but come on, this looks like an over sized galaxy s2 and top of that most people won’t even bother on using all those S features, do you really think people will use them? all people care is for a device to have a big screen and to call/text and do facebook and twitter………Samsung should really take a look at what they are doing, they are the first and not because of quality department but massively throwing their products out there….after my Galaxy S3 frustration i threw away Samsung for good, that phone was horribly done and to this day i dont understand how that was the best thing back then…..my F906i does not have all the features all the notes and galaxys combined have but is a fully functioning device with all the necessary options to not make it boring or plain and top of that it caches more attention and eyes than an oversized black or white brick, im not bashing Samsung because i want, i just feel like they are getting extremely lazy in the design/concept/development department eventually they will be Apple 2 were all their devices look exactly the same and we all know you can’t stick to the same thing for too long, if only they put those people at R&D to do some work…..if only.

    I bought a Note2 on day one. Looks like I will have to buy a Note3 and watch on its release date too. Nope I dont know what I will do with the watch other than scratch the heck out of it. But I will be a cool toy. Calling all Dick Tracy’s!
