The Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note are among the most impressive smartphones on the market, and contribute significantly to the popularity of the Korean manufacturer. In this article, I am going to compare the touchscreen and camera features of these devices to find out how they differ.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 4.8 inch screen, which utilises Super AMOLED HD capacitive touchscreen technology, which is similar in several ways to that of its predecessor the Galaxy S2. This is Samsung’s former flagship smartphone and one of the most popular Android smartphones in the world, the screen of which many people regard as its crowning feature. The Galaxy S3 screen has a resolution of 720x 1280, meaning it can display high definition content which makes it an ideal choice for multimedia use. The screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note on the other hand is considerably larger, at 5.3 inches. This makes it one of the largest smartphone touchscreens on the market. Because this screen is larger, the pixel resolutions been increased to 800x 1280 which ensures high display quality on the larger screen. This also has super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology, which further adds to its display quality. The Galaxy Note comes supplied with a stylus pen which is optimised for this device, called an S-Pen. In conjunction with the large screen size, this makes the Galaxy Note is truly versatile device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note and the Samsung Galaxy S3 share several camera features in common. They both have a camera resolution of 8 megapixels, which can also capture video footage a number of different resolution settings of up to 1080p, which is full high definition. Both cameras also share several image enhancing features such as autofocus, touch focus, face & smile detection, image stabilisation and LED flash. One of the main differences of these cameras is the fact that the Galaxy S3 boasts a couple of unique features not found in many other smartphones, on account of it being a much newer handset. These include the ability to simultaneously capture photos and videos, as well as a function which will capture a set number of consecutive photos after tapping the capture key just once, which is ideal for taking action shots.
As you can see, both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note have impressive touchscreens and cameras. The Samsung Galaxy S3 may come out ahead in these departments on account of it being a much newer phone, but the Galaxy Note can still hold its own against most newer smartphones, and it would indeed be my top recommendation for anyone looking for a smartphone with a larger touchscreen.
