Shelly Palmer Radio Report – October 24, 2013

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is ready to replace most of your devices. Packed with tons of power and featuring a gorgeous 5.7-inch screen, it’s quickly become my smartphone of choice. Samsung’s newest – and biggest – smartphone raises two important questions. Do you need a tablet if you’ve got a phone the size of the Note 3? The answer is very simple: No, you don’t. But is the phone too big? I don’t think so, for a whole bunch of reasons. The web experience on a device this size is fantastic. Also, reading on this phone, like in the Kindle app, is incredible. The screen is big enough to read in a very comfortable way and I don’t have to make the type really large. Your enjoyment of the Note 3 comes down to how willing you are to carry around a phone this size. It fits perfectly in your breast pocket and isn’t a burden. And the fun part of carrying it like that? The phone becomes a pocket square for the 21st Century.
