Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Hands on

Among the notable features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, aside from its S-Pen, it also comes fixed with a faux stitched leather back—which if I may say—is a far departure to the glossy plastics we're used to seeing on Samsung devices. Caring for the white one would prove challenging since it'll eventually stain and chip. That aside, the back is reminiscent of the aged Samsung Galaxy S2.

Thickness-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes in at 8.3mm, 1.1mm thinner than its predecessor the Note 2 (9.4mm).
