Samsung Galaxy Note 3: First Impressions


Samsung Galaxy Note 3: First Impressions

** I received this device and 6 months of service in exchange for my honest opinions. Thank you Verizon!

As a member of the Verizon Boomer Voices group I first received the Droid Razr Maxx HD. Loved it! Now Verizon has surprised us with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Gotta love Verizon. Bringing us Christmas early! 🙂

So the package arrived when I was not home. My husband signed for it and then texted me: “It’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 3!” He resisted the strong urge to open it since he knew I would want to do an ‘unboxing’. Well done dear!

Galaxy Note 3


For those of you unfamiliar with this product it comes with an S Pen. It slides right inside the phone. This is no regular stylus. Take a look at what this baby can do.

This is a ‘phablet’. Not too big for a phone. Not too small for a tablet.

I am just learning about this new device, but I can tell you that I am loving it already! I have been busy customizing it and downloading apps. So much fun! 🙂

Do you have experience with this device? What are your impressions?

  1. For someone like me who dislikes how small most phones are, the size of this one and the stylus are big selling points.

      Yeah, I think even you would like this phone. The size would be perfect for you! Now if we could just get you off of your not smart phone. LOL 🙂

    Cheryl — I like the large screen of the Galaxy and the stylus. I have an iPhone and because I use a desktop iMac I don't want to change phones . The iPhone and iMac are compatible and transfer information I input into one device into the other via iCloud.

    The larger screens are intriguing to me, but I'm still not sure I want to carry something that large around with me all day!
