They are natural rivals, despite warring preventative screenings in the trenches. Both come to claim the power of manufacturer South Korean Samsung with different arguments. One, the Samsung Galaxy Round, with the attraction of being the first device of the firm, and the world, which uses the technology of flexible display, although in practice the panel does not have freedom of movement to the user, but its character moldable has been used for bending equipment design.
Another is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, governing the tablet phone catalog of the signature, by resorting to the brand that has earned the company a post of exception in the sector of the smart phone. The first is aimed, in principle, for the Korean market, while the second has a global vocation. However, it remains to be seen if the plans of the company passed to make the Samsung Galaxy Round a team for the entire world.
Display and Design
The character of each is obvious in this first point. The Samsung Galaxy Round is a flagship phone that has a fairly steep concave line, which is not only meant to give the terminal a certain ergonomics, but also the curve that describes the screen is used by the system to give a utility that be justified with smart applications and options that give this design use.
For this, Samsung has used technology it calls Super AMOLED Flexible, a screen on this phone able to develop a size of 5.7 inches, delivering a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. In this sense, and with the exception of the curved panel, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 calls the bet before, showing the same dimensions and resolution than its counterpart curved.
In terms of dimensions and weight, the Samsung Galaxy Round takes the prize. The guys in the Korean have gotten whipped into its latest batch device. Despite sharing screen size compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Samsung Galaxy Round is more quiet (151.1 millimeters compared to 151.2 millimeters) and thin (7.9 mm against 8.3 millimeters) and lightweight (154 grams compared to 168 grams). However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a bit narrower (79.2 mm to 79.6 mm). Finally, the two turn to a back flip imitate playing touch leatherette.
Camera and Multimedia
We mark tables in this section. The two devices are betting on the same identical media profile that not only is reflected in a fund really complete compatibility to play videos, audio and images from virtually any media, but also in a video camera and that is the envy of the market.
We speak of a unit, the main two that install both teams, based on a thirteen-megapixel BSI sensor with LED flash great. The result obtained is very good photographs, skillfully mitigating the occurrence of noise in the images and getting as clearly as bright. But the best is in the video.
Since both terminals have three profiles of filming in high definition, which recommended. The most powerful in definition is that we can record in UHD, or what is the same, ultra high definition. This standard, so we understand, gives results which are translated twice as high definition on your maximum range.
Finally, the two terminals have a third mode of recording, in HD720p, with which would reach to film in slow motion, thanks to the way in rate of 120 frames per second. The results are spectacular. To close this section, a two-megapixel secondary sensor is at the front of both phones for frontal photos or video calls. The two terminals equipped also a large background of applications and utilities that squeeze the most creative possibilities of the chambers of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Round.
Power, memory and operating system
As in the previous point, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Round are like two drops of water if we stop to analyze their performance, storage capacity and platform. Or at least, almost like two drops of water. Because although the two teams take the Snapdragon processor 800 quad-core 2.3GHz -still a version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with the new Exynos 5 Octa eight-core 1.9 GHz, but intended for counted markets – and work with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, as regards the memory there is a slight difference: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is available in versions 32 and 64 GB capacity base, while the Samsung Galaxy Round only exists with 32 GB. Both allow memory expansion up to 64 GB, where appropriate recourse to the microSD card. Both have, in addition to three GB of RAM.
Connectivity and battery
On one hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Round repeated on similarities, on the other, seems that they are forced to differ. The first profile is determined by the connections. The two phones opt for specifications that are at the leading market in its category. With both networks we connect to Wi-Fi and 3G, besides equipping ports Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB, presenting it the ability to bind with an adapter MHL 2.0. No missing sensors and GPS NFC. The differences begin when we see that the Samsung Galaxy Round has a connector for fourth generation mobile networks LTE Advance, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE sensor turns to Category 4.
As for the battery, the curved design would have taken its toll to Samsung Galaxy Round at this point, because it has a power supply of 2,800 milliamps compared to 3,200 milliamps of installing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. However, the manufacturer has not yet issued the results obtained on real autonomy with battery Samsung Galaxy Round.
For now, the valuations we do about the two terminals are on paper, as the Samsung Galaxy Round, as we said at the beginning of the comparison; do not plan to cross the borders of South Korea at the time. However, limiting ourselves to the purely technical aspect, there is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Round is, in essence, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 curved.
The differences are minimal and not particularly significant at first. The major attraction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is present in the concave phone manufacturer, and those details that distancing (maximum storage memory, battery, LTE connectivity profile) may not be decisive enough to lead a user to opt for one unique beyond far as the design point of each, since even cost about the same in the version of the 32 GB: about 750 euros.
