Hi. I'm Richard Trenholm for CNET.com live from IFA 2013 in Berlin. Take note. It's the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. So the distinguishing feature of the Galaxy Note's range is the S Pen Stylus which you can use to write on the screen. When you pull out the S Pen you get prompted with this air command wheel which allows you to do different things with the S Pen. You can take a memo. You can draw around something in say some text or a bit of a webpage to save it to your scrapbook or you can use the S Pen to search through your notes or you can use the Pen window to draw an app wherever you want it. Another clever feature about the Note is the multitasking option which allows you to have more than one app running at the same time. For example you can have Chrome open, but you can also have your Gmail opened at the same time. You can resize where you want the different apps, how much space you want it to take up, and what's really good is that you can drag and drop stuff between them. So for example you can drag copies and text in the browser and drag it straight into an email. So another multitasking option is sometimes you just wanna pull up a small app like say for example the calculator and all you have to do is draw a box where you want it to appear and you can pull up the calculator with a clock or a YouTube app. So let's pull up the calculator, it'll appear where you wanted it. You can move it around like that. You can do a quick sum and get the results. And then if you want you can minimize that and your minimized app is just floating there, and any time you want to open up another app it stays on top, so you can still go and find any other numbers you need to refer to and then just do the quick sum or make a quick phone call or whatever it is you wanna do. So the screen on the Note 3 measures 5.7 inches which is slightly bigger than the screen on the Note 2 which is 5.5 inches, but it's still in a body that is smaller and slightly thinner and lighter. And it's encased in this kind of leather effect back which feels got rich. It's also got this stitching down the sides. It's really to everyone's taste but it just give it a bit of a premium feel. I'm Richard Trenholm for CNET.com and this was the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and I have to say I'm really impressed with some of the new multitasking features in this.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review
The good: The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a gorgeous and massive screen, screaming quad-core processor, and refined S Pen skills. It also has long battery life, makes clear calls, and takes great pictures.
The bad: The Note 3 is expensive, large, and its faux-leather styling is crafted from cheap plastic.
The bottom line: Though its plastic skin doesn't do its high price justice, Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 makes the most compelling case yet for a supersize phone.
