We've already seen what the 5.9 size will look like. It will be approx .5 inches taller, which may be too much for me. bah.. who am I kidding?? I'll get it anyway! As long as it's not wider! bah.. who am I kidding.. I'll get it anyway!!

There's no way the Note III will be more narrow than the Note 2. Not possible.

I can confirm this, if you look at the comparison page of the galaxy mega and a few other phones....you can transpose the mega 5.8 screen to the note 2 and see that there is no way in hell 5.9 inches (extra .1 of an inch to mega) would fit on a "note 2 footprint"

take a look at the original article posted on April 11th, or just trust me ;)

I was really hoping for 5.7 inches....oh well i'll probably still get it. (hoping it's around 8mm thick)

That's entirely way too big (that's what she said).

I agree - even the 5 incher that's already in my trousers can be a little uncomfortable sometimes...

Ok. I was gonna wait till Note 3. But no more waiting. HTC One it is. Plastic has become dull.

Plastic is cool. I just hope they do not put that god awful pattern on the Note 3 like in the S4. That's why I went with the HTC One. IMO, it makes the phone look hideous.

The pattern on the battery cover? For $10 you can get pretty much and battery cover type you want on Amazon - aluminum, carbon fiber, poly. All posted and colors.

The HTC ONE is the new android smartphone reference - great quality build and brilliant industrial design and interface (HTC Sense 5). To be perfect though still lacks a microSD card, a larger capacity battery and a better camera.

5.9 inch? Geez......I wish I have big hands! But still, I'm excited to see the Note 3! Can't wait!

I can't wait and see what the note 3 has to offer considering the success of the first and second note version! I bet that oled display will be the talk of the town once it comes out

If they do what they've done with the Galaxy S4 iand increase the screen size by eliminating more bezel, I can see them getting away with it. If they eliminate 0.2 inches of bezel then they only need to increase the phone's size by 0.2 inches, which is not a huge increase.

If they increase the overall size of the phone by 0.4 inches that's pushing it though.

On a related note (no pun intended) Samsung really needs to start putting 32 gigs of internal memory into the Note. If you're going to sell the damn thing for 300 bucks, it needs to beat the equivalent priced iPhone in every aspect.

Big Red customers will push their sales beyond belief. not to mention 4th of July saies, back to school sales, etc. Samsung has pretty much decimated the competition, despite "lag" issues and such.

yea I know! verizon owns third of the population of the US, 100 million customers!! only company to match that number is At&t and some Chinese companies.

Many phones have issues/problems, not just the Galaxy S4, the Xperia Z and Optimus G, HTC One etc. have issues/problems too (such as freezing, overheating, battery drain etc.), don't expect it to be a healthy fella.

Just like humans like us, we will get sick right?

Your country is not the only country in the world.. your city is not the only city in your country..

Why should a company lie if there are external auditors? Why should a company lie if their operating profits are being publicized?
Internal storage is not an issue for people who love all touchwiz features.. besides, almost all android skins take signifcant amount of internal space.. Lag was already fixed by the recent update.. and not all units are affected by these issues..

Ok! That should be the limit! Beyond 6" might be considered as a tablet.

I walked around school once pretending to talk on my Nexus 7 like you would with a phone just to gauge people's reactions. I fear it might actually come to that someday now s:
