Not too long ago, I told you that I was having fun with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and I still am.  I love this phone.  No wait I don’t love it I LOVE IT!  I can’t tell you enough what a great phone this is and this time I’m going to show you the awesome pictures that it takes.

We took a trip to Disney in November and while I did take my regular camera with me, I planned on using the Galaxy Note 3 as well for photos.  Since it has such a great battery life, I knew it would last me all day long, even with taking pictures.  Boy and I glad I took it with me because it took amazing pictures.  But before I get into that let me remind you something about this phone that makes it so awesome…. well at least I think it’s awesome.

It’s big – I mean it’s HUGE in cell phone standards.  And I love that part.   Because of its size, it’s so much easier to hold and use.  I don’t feel like I have to talk really loud when on the phone because it sits right at my mouth when using it.

Can you tell in the image above how big this phone is??  I’m not sure I’d be able to go backwards now.

So not only does the big size make talking on the phone easier, but it also helps when taking pictures.  You can see so much more detail of your image because the screen is so big!  So that definitely made it easy to use and I found on our trip that I used it more than my traditional camera!  About 75% of my photos were taken with my Galaxy Note 3 instead of my camera!

We were there for the holidays and if you’ve never seen it, Disney is all decked out in lights and decorations for Christmas.  it’s beautiful!  If you’ve ever been you know that it’s a face paced place.  We don’t stand around very long in one place unless waiting in line so changing the settings on my camera isn’t easy to do.   There is just so much to see and do that it wouldn’t be possible to see it all if I had to stand and change the settings each time I wanted to take a picture inside, outside, in the dark, in the light etc.

The Galaxy Note 3 does all that for you.  Yes lots of cameras and phones have auto settings but I’ve never, ever had one that worked as well as this.   And not just that but I’ve never been able to get good night pictures of fireworks or holiday nights.  Perhaps it’s always been a user problem as in I didn’t know what settings to use but with the Galaxy Note 3 I didn’t have to do a thing except point and shoot and I got this…

Amazing right?  Each night when it got dark, the fairy godmother would come out of the castle and one by one light up the castle.  It was amazing!  If you look closely at the picture, under the clock in the middle of the castle you’ll see a little bit of green…. or maybe it’s blue?  Well that is the Fairy Godmother and she had just lite the castle up when I stopped for quick moment as we walked by and I snapped this picture.  PERFECT, right?  That’s the Galaxy Note 3!

This picture I’m having printed on canvas and will be hanging in my home to always remember that wonderful trip.  It really was amazing.

Also at the holidays, Hollywood Studios has the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in the evenings.  This is also A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  And it snows, real snow which my girls LOVED!  But the light show is absolutely beautiful and I read they have over 5 million christmas lights!  YIKES!  Glad I don’t have to pay that electric bill.

This picture was also taken by my Galaxy Note 3 and I didn’t have to do a thing to the picture settings.  It did it all for me.

We also saw the Fantasmic show at Hollywood Studios one night.  I didn’t take a lot of pictures at this who because I wanted to enjoy it more but at the end all the princesses came out on a boat and since we have two girls who themselves are princesses, I wanted to get a picture of them all together.  Once again I pulled out my Galaxy Note 3 because I knew it would get a good shot and this is what I got…

There are no lights on at all, and no flash but look at what a beautiful shot this is!  I love how it even got the purple and blue lights that were shining on the boat from the water as it went by.  The girls were excited to see this picture!

Each park has a Christmas Tree as you walk in.  They are all beautiful, of course!  This is the tree at Hollywood Studios and it’s massive and the lights are just gorgeous!  Once again my Galaxy Note 3 did a great job capturing it.

If you are in the market for a new phone and you want one that takes beautiful pictures, I highly suggest you take a look at the Galaxy Note 3 before you rule it out. It’s an amazing phone and I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone who uses it, falls in love with it as I did.
