Great for Samsung for not suing others copied screen size 5.3 - 5.5 gigantic phone. Rotten Apple filed lawsuits and expected Samsung to pay $2.5 billions for "the looks and feels" on Samsung Galaxy S to iPhone. Apple's CEOs are very crazy people like Steve Jobs and now Tim is trying to Cooks Samsung.

We need hard cold facts; not iRumors. U.S. Carrier Availability? Release Date? Exact Size? Verizon? Verizon? Verizon?

Samsung will make the "fat phone" narrower so it will be easier or more comfortable to hold. Basically, it will be more rectangular than the first generation.

Try MOTO MAXX! It is a sign of your personality and Samsung device compatibility issue.

Want a phone that is superior in every way than samsung? Try Sony Xperia. Best phone ever.

how is e hardware excellent? kinetic scrolling is so choppy, the phone hangs and it lags even when i scroll through pages! and mind u, i dont have many apps on my phone. im not going to root it. the phone is like 3 months old only.

i'd find that hard to believe if you have the International Variant but if you have the Crapdragon powered US Variant then i could find that a little more believable.

34. u-suck-more

well it is true. looks like exynos isnt as great as i thought. oh FYI, the phone lags worse than my Optimus 3D and my Optimus 3D has never hanged on me before, but the far superior Note has for some odd reason

35. KingKurogiii

it must be something with your particular device then because nothing with Exynos lags. the Note wouldn't be THAT much better than the 3D being that it uses an OMAP4430 which is second to the Exynos from SoCs from that generation but the Note should be noticeably faster.

but considering that the Note has almost 50% more RAM and that Samsung is known for good software optimization and LG isn't, shouldn't the Note be significantly better??
