It's too huge though. It's like carrying around the Dell Streak I would imagine.

I had the Dell Streak. It's actually pocketable. Using it was being inside a Toyota Sequoia.

It definitely got attention everytime I pulled it out.

I sold it cuz the rez was crap, Dell sucks about updates and the dev community behind it is thin and the camera sucks.

But my gf loved playing games with it cuz of the size, much more than her iphone.

I always use an ear piece anyway. I've only seen one person with a Dell Streak actually to their ear, and yes they look ridiculous.

Dell Streak is heavier and thicker, not comfortable to put in the pocket.

The samsung galaxy SII is already big for me. I would never buy a phone this size no matter how good it his. It's not practical at all for making calls and it would never fit my pocket. Hope they know what they're doing.

If it could fit in my hand and in my pocket I would say yes, but that this is pretty big don't think thats going to happen! need to see the hands on video.

You can see in engadget. It's way to big for me. I would never buy it. Phones are supost to be portable but that won't fit in any kind of pocket.

Infuse barely fits in my back pocket with a case on it. Next fashion trend? The smartphone fanny pack!

If they shrink everything in this, uh - "phone" - down to 4.5 inches, take off TouchWiz, throw on ICS, and call it the Nexus Prime, then I'd be interested.

26. Commentator (Posts: 2401; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)


It's got HD resolution, 1280x800, so my guess would be Super Amoled HD.

I was a BIG fan of the Dell Streak which never took off. THIS would be my perfect device! I was waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S2, but this will be the device of my dreams!

Don't you guys think Samsung's going a bit over board with the screen size?

Not sure it will be higher on benchmarks then the S II, All those extras pixels will impede performance.

Have been waiting for somebody to do this! I thought the new EVO Tablet would have the phone feature, but no such luck. I cannot wait for Sprint to pick this up! Sprint, if youre reading this, PLEASE hurry up and get this.
