#1, apply. #2, everyone knows that in both colors and features, the Note is always better than the S.

The note is dead ay least in name. I don't think Samsung is foolish enough to bring out that bears that name.

Thank you! Those are absolutely screen protectors! Seriously, I don't know why people keep thinking that Samsung will allow those sensors to be so pronounced. It just won't happen.

Love that almost symmetrical sized top & bottom bezel !!

Phone like scale... when you watch tv or video you couldn't satisfy

So it appears the front is going to be black on all the colors to hide the ugly sensors and the back and sides of the phone will be different colors?

Wow, I hope it is true because with coloured bezels the phone looks hideous. Looks very nice in these pictures. Shame for Samsung's heavily modified Android fork, lack of digital noise cancelling and -lately- late updates that keep me a Sony customer. If it weren't for these points, I'd give this phone a try.

Yeah, those sensors look really ugly on light colors.

So the front bezels will be black regardless of color ? That would be on way to hide the top bezel sensor array.

Smart doing it that way

all come with black front panel? nice decision... since the white front leak looks like a dalmatian

All black front bezels are actually an attractive contrast for any bright colored rear panel.

Wau finally a different phone design. Yes I know about Xiaomi, but this is Sammy so I can't compare.

They had to make that decision because of the very busy top bezel. It's either black or a dark hue.

Hold up? 3000 and 3500mAh for each' chassis respectively? Like how hard is it to instead do 3500 and 4000mAh instead? People are expected to be paying the big bucks for them to figure that s**t out no?

Rather have less mAh and not have the phone blow up on me. I'm okay with it. I miss my note 7, can't wait to get this phone and replace my edge.

Had no relation to batt capacity whatsoever but rather crappy suppliers' crappy batt packs. Plus if Samsung know what's good for them at this point then that's sorted out already. Nothing wrong for asking more for your money imho, especially if these models are gonna be that big then a bit more thickness should be proportionate enough.
