What can you predict? That samsung will make another phone? A sequel to Note series? Wow you must be a fortune teller.

Bigger battery, slightly bigger screen, few more colors, beefed up processor, ram and camera what else? A bigger Stylus too? What purpose do these "in crease" serve in terms of "functional utility" as compared to predecessor. Tell me if i have a S3 why the hell should i buy S4? Same Sungs (read apples) for Note2 --> Note3.

That's how each and every manufacturer update their smartphone line. What did you expect? A phone that can turns itself into a car or some stuff like that?

No i would want it to behave like PHONE rather than become a TV in few years ... more i look at Galaxy Grand that SIL bought and compare to TX that wife bought more i start to dislike Samsung ... hope you get what i mean ... maybe at some stage i will switch to NOKIA

No I doubt he gets what you mean. Sounds like some hater gibberish to me.

Great to see that you have telepathic powers too. Yup it will sound gibberish to a zombie for sure :)

Don't need telepathic powers to infer than another person might see the same gibberish that I do. The English language has the same rules to both him and myself.

So which rule lead you to conclude that only a hater could write what i wrote? There's no such rule really (except for in zombie world)

The rule of common sense. Comparing a midrange Galaxy Grand compared to the higher end TX shows an obvious lack of common sense. Judging Samsung based on that shows an even bigger lack of common sense.

Proves that Common sense isn't a comm on commodity these days. Comparing 2 phones that were bought in same price range (diff of around $40 on retail) ... with Grand being released later than TX.

You are lacking a lot of it. you are ignoring the fact that Sony phones drop in price like a brick and the Smasung phone is newer. Fcat is, the TX along with the T was Sony's flagship. The Galaxy grand is anything but. Their flagship is the Galaxy S series which would be the GS3, not the grand. Common sense, learn how to use it.

Agree I too don't want a "TV" as a phone but I have no issue with these bigger phones existing as long as there are smaller phones still available too buy..I had a s3 which is the biggest I will go right now as it is easily portable and fits in all my pockets etc easily..which is why when I heard the s4 was going to be a 5" I was worried it will be too big but thankfully the s4 turned out be actually tad smaller in both width and thinness while still having the larger screen and battery...I have no issues with screen size getting bigger if it means the device itself doesn't .

if you have iphone 4s then why would you buy iphone 5? atleast s4 differentiates much in terms of features than s3..

do you expect an oval or triangle shape phone??

30. rusticguy

One expect design creativity of Sony Phones.

35. SleepingOz unregistered

Yeah, flat rectangles since 2011.

Only if Sony was prompt with S/W upgrades they could give a tough competition to SAME-SUNG. Yes they are flat rectangles since 2011 yet 2012 models can be differentiated from 2013 even from a distance. What has SAME-SUNG done for physical differentiation from 2012 to 2013? Since we don't have carrier subsidies here buying a phone is not same as buying toothpaste as entire money has to be paid upfront.

Go look at a Galaxy Nexus, then a Galaxy Rugby, and then a Galaxy beam, and a Galaxy Active. There is more differentiation between those devices than Sony ever did. Heck, even all the variations of the GS2 has more differentiation than all of the Sony products and they are all Galaxy S2's.

Have a GNex so yes that was different but then i guess GOOG was more in the driver's seat there. Grand and S3 look the same from even 3 feet and one costs 1.5 times the other. So where's the differentiation for the "Premium" phone. All look the same ... like Zebras that we see on Discovery :D

If you think the GS3 looks the same as the Galaxy Grand you are either blind or retarded, maybe both. And yes the Grand looks obviously the lower end phone to myself and a lot of people. Here is a tip, everyone sees the world differently, you can't just assume everyone thinks all Samsung products look the same. I think a lot of the Xperia phones look the same at the front but I am not going to call them out for it.

Ok i will not call you a "RETARD or blind or both" for saying all XPERIA phones look the same. That's the difference between you and me. One needs to be selective about choice of words when in a discussion rather than go into epileptic fits and lose control on use of words.

if we see world wide then I think there is no necessity for sony to differentiate their phones. I can bet, many(general people) have not heard what xperia is and how does it look..Sony is still not that big player and even though I read much about sony phones on these sites, i have never seen it live. Its no where in my country..

So passionate about something so trivial. Fact of the matter is, they're selling more then Sony and it's "unique" design and correct me if I'm wrong what speaks louder than words? Actions is it?

Whats all this "current rumor" stuff. Samsunf already confirmed at the phone would have a 5,9" screen. So whats the deal with all rumors of a 5,99" screen.

PLEASE Samsung...NO More 16 gigs for Christ's sake!!!! I can live with the plastics and touchwuss..but No more 16 gigs!!!!!! With all the crapware that you stuff in, the Note 3 should come with at least 32 gigs minimum now
