Can Sony's rumored 6.44" Togari phone rival a Galaxy Note III if both came with a stylus?

0. phoneArena 25 Jan 2013, 06:00 posted on

Not to say that Snapdragon 800, a 6.4" Full HD screen and 3,500 mAh battery are not impressive, but what caught our attention is that Sony is making the big screen matter with a stylus silo, like in Samsung's Note series, and equipping the handset with an IR blaster to serve as a remote control for your home electronics...

I think, that there use Sony stylus, which he patented some time ago, with with friction-based haptic feedback... If this were true, it would be awesome and Sony would have the upper hand.

If these specs are true then yes it can compete with the GN3, but i'm more interested in the software features & if they can match-up or exceed samsung's usual offering.

That's the key......can Sony provide the software to match the hardware or will they design a phone that is boggle down by sluggish software. The hardware is only as good as the software and vice-versa.

the specs looks very capable and something to be excite about but i think 6.44 is too much for a phone 5.5 to 5.8 i guess would be enough

So let me get this right, Huawei manages to squeeze in 4050 mAh in a 6.1 inch phone, and Sony only 3500 mAh in a 6.44 monster device.. what?

Didn't even see this post initially, but that would also be a concern of mine if I were interested in a tablet sized phone. If I had to guess, I'd say that Sony is trying to reduce the weight of the phone by using a smaller battery.

Good point. Think ALL manufacturers should have bigger batteries.
I do not need a credit card thin phone, need one that doesnt die on me.

Sony will never be a copycat, stylus has been popularized a long time ago by Sony. Yes, maybe other companies have stylus before sony but they popularized it with their P series phones (P800, P900, P990i and so on...), Samsung will and cannot patent that.

Let's not forget, we are discussing Sammy and Sony, not Apple. Apple is the patent king who wants to patent everything.

I'd be a little concerned about the battery size, considering Sammy has placed a 3100mAh battery on a 5.5 inch screen phone and Sony is placing a 3500mAh on a 6.4 inch screen phone.

Yea. America was built on competition. Bring it on and may the best phone (with the best and best looking screen) win.

I love Samsung, but it I would also love to see some stiff competition! It keeps all the maufacturers on thier toes and gives us buyers good choices!

A note 3 will most likely have similar if not better spes than this. But aside from specs the software is what really counts. If samsung makes touchwiz and their software features as good as they did with the s3 and note 2 that would be a reason why the togari phone wouldn't be able to rival the note 3.

If this is true, I will wait for this to come out, forget the Z and ZL, they're too small. Full hd phones should have a display size near 6" and above so this togari will be perfect, and NO I don't have big hands, I have small hands yet I find my 4.7" LG 4x hd on the small side.

I doubt it will beat sgn3, but it will be a rival. Sammy have developed 4 GB LPDDR3 ram. I don't know if it will be in togari, but it will probably be in sgn 3.
