Because they are fans, which means they are unrealistic and idiots of highest order. If the fans are any good, they would be in Samsung's board, not commenting in PA.

I would rather phones be built for 2yr use than this 1 year stuff. Had a note 2, now a note 3, while it is lovely i just cannot justify another note purchase. Especially after the bad taste of this one so far. Who knows maybe if i play with it in the store and it wows me, i might change my mind. I think what also kinda killed my excitement over the note series was owning a full blown pc tablet, and probably why this note 4 announcement doesnt do much for me. I wish it did look like the render though, lovely pic.

The rightmost image looks like a refinement of the "band aid" motif, but done much more tastefully. As a Note 3 owner, it'd be great if Samsung makes an amazing Note 4. The Note series to me is still the most iconic line of phones/phablets in the industry, even more so than the iPhone. But I am also setting myself up for disappointment. Samsung has locked down their phones of late and is decidely more unfriendly to rooting. And without root, there's just too much bloatware, no Xposed, Greenify doesn't work all the way, etc, etc. Also having used an S5 Active for a while, I realized how nice it was to have the "action button". But how "not so nice" to was to have hard to press main buttons. So if the Note 4 adds an action button and keeps the other buttons the same, that would be great. Lastly, the Note 3 was so underwhelming with headphones. Decent line out quality, but Samsung was cheap and didn't use a separate audio chip for the headphone circuitry/amp. Also the S-Pen didn't track as well as it does on the Note tablets. Anyhow, hope Samsung is really burning the midnight oil and getting every last detail done well. If Samsung falls down and cheaps out on the Note 4, it will be a hurtful blow to the Note brand, to the Samsung brand.

Samsung's TouchWiz IS the MAJOR reason for LAG. Samsung should go back to the drawing board in the UI department.

Agreed. They also pile on a bunch of apps that take up your memory also. I will give credit that Samsung is good at hardware, but their weakness is software which has always been mediocre.

The specs in the S3 are still good. Just do a new design already.

Come on Samsung.. Release the real smartphone king & crush the rebellion I for one can't wait for its release. The only bummer being that here in India, I have to make do with an exynos version unless I can get one of my cousins in the USA to buy one there & send it to me.

May the force be with you brasstax...the rebellion will live on my friend. It's called competition...and it's healthy! It would be a very dull world if we only had Samsung making smartphones.

Im new in this site, I've been reading diferent articles since the Galaxy S5 pre-launch and I've desided that making a coment or two could be fun, what you guys think about this ''phablet''? Could we still call it phablet although there are phones like LG G3 which are huge and considered smartphones? And... do you spec a lot of this phone just like I spected a lot from the S5?

I'm going to have to change my username because I think the specs race has been run now. Current flagships have everything you need, they are super fast with fantastic screens and great cameras. Manufacturers need to start thinking about design, especially Samsung who seem to be churning out device after device which look basically the same. The challenge now is to pack all of these wonderful features into the smallest possible chassis, using premium materials whilst considering ergonomics and battery life. C'mon guys show a bit of imagination. Take a look at some of the wonderful concepts on You Tube, and try to take some inspiration from these.

Why would they change the design? All of their phones look fabulous. Apple hasn't hardly changed a thing either and they have the majority of the smart phone market. That means with their totals added together, 70% of the U.S. market is happy with the similar designs. Meanwhile, the imaginative manufacturers, like Nokia, are going out of business.
