Well, now you put a galaxy S3, Note 1@2 in that visual comparison tool, look carefully and draw some conclusions.

i don't see what you're trying to do here. my point still stands. it's still just a .3" screen size difference. the Notes do have bigger bezels though. is that what you're basing your Phablet criteria off of? how much phone is in your hand? there's really not enough of a difference to try so hard to discount devices with 5.0" displays from being Phablets.

Are you freaking pulling me? Even after i basically draw it out for you! SIII and Eluga Power are of the same size! They are thus OBVIOUSLY the same category, while other two are OBVIOUSLY another one. As long as you can fit something within the GSIII size, it is a phone.

Verizon seems to decide to consolidate all of their major releases into the holidays instead of the 2nd and 3rd quarters like other carriers do.

Not related but just found out HTC Singapore customer service is amazing. My sister needed to have her HTC One X serviced. Call up HTC customer service. They will send a courier to pick up the phone. Fix it and courier back. All free of charge. I am truly impressed! Never expected that!
