Samsung Galaxy Note 3 render pops up, alongside first price hints

0. phoneArena posted on 02 Sep 2013, 05:57

We also got the first quote of the alleged Note 3 pricing, courtesy of a Russian electronics retailer, which expects to carry the phablet in the end of September with a price tag of 29 900 rubles, which equates to about 900 USD. Russia is always a very expensive market for these things, so based on this quote and historical differences in prices of newest gadgets in Moscow and other major markets, we'd wager to guess it will land with about 700 USD or EUR starting price elsewhere, depending on the market, which would be in line with last year's Note II...

I have my display auto-off set to 10 minutes for occasional hands-off viewing, like for instructions, recipes, and Ingress. Normally I turn the screen off manually.

My "bag" is more like a purse about the size of a DVD case, so the slimness makes items press against it easily.

That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard someone complain about. I own a Note 2 and have never had that happen to me.

Chill out. :P I was being hyperbolic when I said "frequently." I love my Note 2, and this is just a nitpick rather than a serious complaint.

It's not a common problem, but there are a number of "how to disable home button wake" inquiries for Galaxy phones on various forums.

This actually happens to me too, but the home button isn't the problem. It's the unlock button. I bet that's what being pushed on your phone too. Considering how flush the home button, it just sounds unlikely that it is the culprit. It's kind of rounded & not very flush with the body of the phone, so it gets pushed in my pocket somewhat frequently. It's rather annoying. The design of those buttons (the volume rocker also) has been changed to remedy that problem in the S4, so hopefully it carries over.

The One Max will be the beauty and the beast, so that is your best bet! I already have my upgrade and money waiting!

Then get some other device. Problem solved. No point getting something which is annoying.

Physical Home button looks much good, as compared to capacitive buttons or on screen button.

I hope not. I prefer a physical home button.

I like the home button. Good for exiting apps, switching previous apps used and waking up the device. Not sure why people don't like it. :)

I don't hate home button there it could be nice if instead home button replace it with swipe gesture and speaker in front instead on the back since big screen mean for media consume

I think if Samsung can take home guesture from BlackBerry 10 to wake up the device and speaker like theONE that will be almost the perfect perfect phone.

Home button is just more practical than software keys on-screen, as they're less intrusive. I must say, this is going to be the best looking Samsung phone to date

I hope is the same material that sony xperia z tablet uses.

Looks better but still the back looks generic as hell. Still a beast inside so that mostly what matters. I can see in e very near future we are going to see 1000.00 phones cutting the gap between phones and tablets/computers

Agree the s2 was awesome, especially the back, wish Samsung would get rid of the glossy back and go back to the s2 back. S2 felt premium even though it was plastic.

And that was one hell of a rugged phone..
Unlike the next models.. and display was lot better that the HD and FHD oversaturated Amoled panels..

I'm usually one of the first person to slam Samsung because of its design. But this look really goodI if its true. I was getting tired of the same rounded design year after year.

Real time response on the S-pen, That's all I need. Keep it up Samsung!

Really liking the look of this, it's similar the s2 which was a great design but with a bit of modernity to it..

Def like what I see... But that 3rd render... What's up with that one? Looks totally different than the other 2 and there's an extra button on the side... It'd be nice if it was a dedicated camera button .. I def like the looks of that one better. But its probably just a fan render of some sort. :-(

Give us a 32gb at launch please. But regardless of that, this is the phone I've been waiting all year for. Samsung can't shut up and take this money any sooner.
