Samsung Galaxy Note 3

It's time to kick off our Note 3 coverage with an in-depth look at the phone's hardware and software

We've got the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in-house and we're putting the phone through its paces as we prepare our full review. But first we've got a full video walkthrough of Samsung's latest half-phone, half-tablet 5.7-incher. Join us after the break for the lowdown on the Galaxy Note 3's redesigned externals, upgraded hardware and new software tricks. We've also got a hands-on gallery with the "jet black" version of the phone.
