At 6.3" they'll have to change the slogan. It will now be: "Phone? Tablet? Best of both.....well maybe it's like a slightly smaller tablet combined with a big mother f***in' phone." They'll have Samuel L. Jackson do the ad since he's known for saying the mofo word.

I found the first Note to massive to be consider a usable phone. As it does not effect me, because I don't really care for Samsung phones. But, I do hope this is just a rumor. I consider 6.3" to be a tablet and not a phone. You never know tho, some people out there might like it.

I have a big hand and 6 inch note 3 is welcome very much.
Anything above 6 inch then I am out.
You will see guys that the next note 3 will be between 5.8 to 6 inch.
I like to see it at 6 inch and nothing more.

i don't wanna imagine come year 2020. Phones that have 21" screen, phablets at 27", tablets at 32" and laptops at 42". LOLs

i think 6" is the limit for phablet, any gadget bigger than that will be extremely hard or even unusable with one handed operation.

When I heard that a true phablets measurements are 6.3" I was excited cause i figured that Sammy would eventually get there. I think its too soon to see a 6.3" Note 3 by next year. I think they should take it slow and make it at least a 6" screen. Then after that they should make a 6.3" screen. Honestly, the biggues I want my Phablet to be is the size of the Nexus 7. With less frame of course. Still waiting on the news tho whether or not that Note 7.0 or 7.7 will have a phone feature on it.

this is good news. it may not be for everyone. at least we have options.
75. joseph98 (Posts: 167; Member since: 03 Feb 2012)
Not really. unless they make 2 versions of note 3 one with 6" and other with 6.3".
As a note 1 and note 2 user I will diffenitly go for the 6" otherwise I don't see any other option but to dumb the note series and go for the new sony with 6".

Oh goodie! 4-core A15, 8-core GPU, 6,3", 1080p...
54. ckoch125 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Unless it has no bezel that is to big. The current note size is good why keep going larger why not use better screen tech and pixel density??
55. ckoch125 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
I just hope they don't make the s4 any bigger than 5 if even that big. Unless they shrink the bezel so it's same size as the s3
57. sujithahmed (Posts: 1; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
wont be a good 1 to keep in hand......note ii size is perfect
59. bubbadoes (Posts: 547; Member since: 03 May 2012)
getting ridiculous now--Samsung----6.3 inches---that's a little smaller than the 7' Nexus tablet.
62. jibraihimi (Posts: 710; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
Instead of calling it Note 3, they should call it Galaxy Tab 3, 6.3

I LOVE my Note 2 from Tmobile. Everywhere I go I almost always get a "wow what is that!?" asked by people and bar tenders, and what not. Although I am used to the phone's size there are ocassions where it's size hinders me a little bit. I will be buying another note in the future IF they keep it this same size... but anything physically larger and I won't be able to fit it without a man-purse! 6.3" sounds TOO big! I would have to pass on the Notes if that is indeed true. (Hope not!)
64. Jeradiah3 (Posts: 1011; Member since: 11 Feb 2010)
Id have to look at the design before I can say that Im for or against this idea. I love the Note and Note II because its a big phone for a big guy like me. Hopefully making a phone that big should be the limit because you're talking about tablet territory w/ phones that are 6.5 in and higher
we'll have to wait and see

I'm feeling like the physical size of my Note 2 is about perfect for me. It's able to fit in my pockets ok, but any bigger and there could be issues.
I'm all for the Note 3 sporting a bigger screen as long as the physical size doesn't change much, if at all. I could see them getting maybe half an inch more out of the current Note 2.
I'm IN if it comes out as 6" in the SAME size chassis.. but any bigger and I think I'll pass.
Sammy has to be careful here with the Note 2. It's about perfect now and if they keep pushing the size, they will quickly hit a point where people will stop buying it and it will become a niche product. It already is to a degree.

i agree the note 2 i have is close to the most perfect device ive ever handled.
71. Dubskillz (Posts: 9; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
I applaud Samsung for pushing the envelope, but if I want to wrap my hand around 6" I'm gonna either grab a Subway sandwich or SOME of myself... Lol...slow it down Sammy.....
72. speckledapple (Posts: 892; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)
Samsung loves its funny screen sizes. I am quite content with the 5.5 inch. I may jump at that 6.3 if its true but man that is really pushing my limit for comfort and blurring the lines between tablet and phone.
74. yatmiko (Posts: 36; Member since: 13 Dec 2011)
it might looks big, same like when I use my note2 first time and I feel it too big for me.
But now the 5.5" it look small for me because I use it anywhere and any time.
I think 6.5 is the best size if they can keep the bezel less then 2MM at horizontal and less then 5MM at the vertical side.
76. alfadolla (Posts: 28; Member since: 14 Mar 2011)
That's insane I am still trying to adjust to the 5'5 inch screen and having to explain to on lookers why is your phone so big? it is a phone isn't it!
77. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1791; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
PLEASE STOP!!!!!! I don't want to have to use 10" phone in the future....
78. imkyle (Posts: 1044; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
The nexus 7 is 7.0 inches... I cannot see carrying something an inch smaller than that in my pocket. Instead of making it better add a A15 CPU and improve the screen.
80. downphoenix (Posts: 2685; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)
Too big. 6+ inches is tablet territory. At that size, its no longer pocketable. Unless JNCOs come back in style, LOL.
83. skymitch89 (Posts: 1184; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
6.3in is not a phablet, it's straight up a tablet, though small. What I would like to see in the next Note would be the same 5.5in screen but with 1080p resolution using the technology that the Note 2 us using. Aside from a higher resolution screen, I could see having about 4GB RAM (based on the fact that the demo Note at my local Sprint store only has about 750MB free RAM out of like 1.8GB) and a more efficient processor (not more powerful but better power usage).

How far will Samsung go for their "phablets?" 6.3 inches!? That's insane!
91. D_Tech-tive (Posts: 104; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
Better have some deep pockets for that monster! Might as well talk on a tablet! SMH
96. yatmiko (Posts: 36; Member since: 13 Dec 2011)
Everyone said 5.5 is too big last time, but see how ppl respond now
Note II is the 2nd higher best seller device for sammy now

If they make it narrow and tall like they did with the Note 2 then it might not be that bad
