Samsung is one of the top smartphone manufacturers in the world, and its Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note handsets are among the most popular on the market. While these phones impress in terms of features like screens, cameras and operating systems, in this article I am going to look at their processor technology and storage capacity, as these features are often overlooked by many people when choosing their next smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the first handsets to boast a quad-core processor, which is the next generation smartphone processor technology. The 1.4 GHz, this processor makes it one of the most powerful smartphones in the world. Because the Samsung Galaxy Note was released around a year ago, it does not have this up to date technology, but instead has a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor which still provides the handset with excellent performance, even by today's standards. In fact, at the time of its release, this made the Samsung Galaxy Note one of the most powerful handsets on the market. There are numerous advantages to having ample processing power; it is responsible for a major part of the user experience of any smartphone. Benefits include efficient multitasking, whereby you can run two or more apps at the same time without jeopardising performance of any of them, a responsive touchscreen, fast download times and fast loading and operating times of even the most advanced applications. The processor is also largely responsible for the display of on screen graphics when playing games or watching videos.
These days, smartphones are required to store everything from PDF files and spreadsheets to apps, music collections and full length movies. Therefore, it is essential that handsets offer adequate levels of internal storage. Luckily, both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note tick all the boxes in this department. Both handsets are offered in a number of different storage variants. The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB versions, with the Samsung Galaxy Note offered in 16 GB and 32 GB options. While even the basic 16 GB versions should prove ample for most users, both phones also come with expandable storage in the form of a microSD slot. This allows users to install a memory card whereby further storage of up to 32GB can be achieved, and offers a relatively inexpensive means of increasing storage.
As you can see, both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note ticks all the boxes in terms of processing power and storage capacity. While there is obviously much more to both phones, it is good to see that these features have not been overlooked.
