When Samsung launched the original Galaxy Note smartphone in 2011, no one thought that with the release of Note, the company was creating a new product category in the smartphone world – phablet. The success of original Galaxy Note and even better response to Galaxy Note II showed that phablets were here to stay.
Samsung recently announced the third smartphone in Note series – Galaxy Note 3 and in the next few days, consumers around the world would be rushing to the stores to grab this latest phablet from the company.
Samsung focusses a lot on the software part of its devices, some would say a little too much. Samsung Android devices tend to be filled with software features, which many would hardly use. The company pre-loads applications for almost every normal use case on its devices and Note 3 is not going to be any different. However, for an ecosystem like Android, where Google Play is filled with more than a million apps, why settle for a pre-loaded app when you can find something better.
In this article, we will be talking about some of the best applications that you can put in your Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. If you want to suggest more apps for your fellow Galaxy Note 3 users, drop in the app names in comments.
