The Note 3 ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Samsung's TouchWiz interface supplies shortcuts and software add-ons.

Replacing the glossy plastic of previous Notes is a textured leather-effect back. Its leather-look is complemented by suave stitching.

The new look evokes an expensive wallet.

The metallic edge and stitching aim for a more luxurious feel than previous glossy Notes.

Like the Galaxy S4, the Note 3 is edged with classy metallic accents. Despite the bigger screen, the Note 3 is thinner and lighter.

The Note 3 isn't too much larger than its predecessor.

Either side of the physical home button are touch-sensitive light-up buttons, but like most Galaxy phones, they annoyingly disappear most of the time.

An IR blaster makes its way on the Note 3, next to the headset jack. You can use it to control your TV.

The S Pen stylus calls up this Air Command wheel of shortcuts.

The Air Command wheel has several options for the S Pen, including the option to draw a box of any size anywhere on the screen to show where you want an app to appear.

Use the stylus to jot down a memo.

A new Scrapbook option saves snippets and clippings of text, pictures, or anything you draw round on the screen.

The big screen can be used to show two apps at the same time, such as the browser and your e-mail.

You can pull up various options when two apps sit side-by-side.

A look at the browser. Some Note models will get 4G LTE, while other non-4G regions will continue surfing the Web with available 3G speeds.

You can drag and drop text, pictures, links, or other snippets from one app to the other.

You can share your Galaxy Note 3's screen with other Note 3 that are nearby.

When you screen share, one image will take up both screens, so you can watch videos or view photos with more display space.

Pick the primary and secondary screens, then playback videos or view photos on both Note 3 phones collectively.
