CyberShack Shootout: iPhone 5S Or Galaxy Note 3?
Obviously, there’s a considerable difference when it comes to the size of the Note 3 and the iPhone 5S. Based on the dimensions alone, the Galaxy Note 3 is over twice the volume of the iPhone. Consequently, the Samsung sports a bigger screen, which makes it a joy when watching movies or viewing photos. Its screen is also higher in resolution compared to that of the iPhone.
However, the larger dimensions also mean that it weighs more. Even though majority of the Note’s components are made from thin and light plastic, it is still over 50g heavier compared to the iPhone which is made from a combination of aluminium and Gorilla Glass.
