The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with some excellent external and internal hardware, and that all gets together to bring the best out of the 13-megapixel camera included in it. The cameras from Samsung in the Galaxy devices have always done quite a fine job in capturing good pictures, and the Note series has been exceptional in all of them. The Note 2 had a 8-megapixel camera, and now the upgrade brought a 13-megapixel lens on the back of the Note 3.
The flash too is improved, along with the camera and they both do some good capturing together in the low light conditions. We did a few clicks using the Galaxy Note 3, and these are totally unedited and do not have any effects, neither did we use any mode for capturing. You can check the photos below to understand the quality of natural captures one would do using the Galaxy Note 3’s camera.
The various capture modes included with the camera of the Note 3, include Panorama, Surround Shot, Sports, Auto, Beauty Face, Best Photo, Best Face, Sound & Shot, Drama, Animated Photo, Golf, Rich Tone HDR, Eraser. The various resolutions of photo sizes possible:
- 13MP – 4128×3096 pixels (4:3)
- 9.6MP Wide – 4128 x 2322 pixels (16:9)
- 8MP – 3264 x 2448 pixels (4:3)
- 6MP Wide – 3264 x 1836 (16:9)
- 2.4MP Wide – 2048 x 1152 (16:9)
In competition to the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) of the LG G2’s camera, the Galaxy Note 3 has included the Smart Stabilization which although doesn’t do a totally similar level of stabilization but still is quite appreciable with it.

We did some similar tests and captures using the excellent cameras of the Sony Xperia Z1 and the LG G2, the flagship devices from the competitive brands. You could check them too and compare which one’s the best in them. So far, for the Note 3, the camera doesn’t collect much reflected light thrown from the flash and that makes the picture look neat with fine detailing, with the needed object brightened well because of the flash.
