Description: For phablet shoppers the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is your best choice. It offers a full HD screen, lightning fast Snapdragon 800 processor and a mammoth 5.7-inch screen. Multitaskers will love Samsung's custom enhancements such as an app that allows you to run two apps side-by-side -- something you can't even do on most small-ish tablets.
