Stacked up against the competition, Note 3 has almost similar features as its competition except it has the largest display. Though the Sony Xperia Z1 has a 5” TFT LCD, Xperia Z Ultra has 6.4” and LG G2 has 5.2“ IPS display, both of them are full HD with higer PPI compared to Note 3’s 57” SuperAMOLED display.
