I don't usually pay attention to the comments on here unless they're constructive or it seems someone is misinformed and I care enough to correct them. A lot of the comments are barely above youtube status. :/ Plus some of the trolls get banned so often it is hard to keep up with whatever their new sn is.

Dude according to you, everyone is trolling if they don't have the same opinion as you. Once you can afford the Apple devices on your Want list: your opinion will change and Apple haters will be the trolls. I've been on forums since before you hit puberty. Same old song and dance.

No thanks. I'll reward OEM's that make compact Android flagships like Moto and Sony with my money because I enjoy options and not just a sea of bezel-less plastic beasts all of which have the same specs on release.

Sorry, network problems in the factory. Work in the biggest building on earth with metal doors over 100ft tall.

I really hope, that the international version wouldn't include stupid Exynos. On the other hand I won't care anyway, my next phone wouldn't be Samsung anyway. After seeing, how Samsung treats developer community, never again. (S2)

The S2 got terrible support since it was running Exynos. Look at the T-Mobile S2 and check the ROMs for it. US S3 and S4 get full support since it sports a Qualcomm SoC.

Would buy it instantly if they released a WP version of this.

32GB should be the base size for all phones, my friend owns the LG G2 and paid £500 but he can't store many apps on it and he wishes he had a SD slot like my S4. MicroSD slot is also a must.

phonearena redesign this site, use ajax based commenting system where a new comment appears while reading others without refreshing the whole page, where the whole page does not refresh when I comment hence i don't lose focus, just like disqus does or cnet's, theverges's etc

It's a shame that I feel like my Nexus 5 display is "too small" after reading rumors of the next generation of flagship devices.

Nexus 5 is a compact 5 inches - I bet they could do a 6 incher next time and it would still feel 'compact'

I do have a question in all of this: I see everyone complaining about ending up with an Exynos 6 CPU.. but between the Exynos 6 & SD805, isn't the Exynos 6 suppose to carry a 64bit architecture unlike the SD805? I would imagine for the sake of future proofing a device for those not engulfed in rooting & ROMing an Exynos 6 would be the proper way to go.

No SD card slot will just be another reason to wait for the iPhone 6.

lol, seriously? The iphone 6 has no sd card slot - sd card slots are being phased out because companies want your storage on the 'cloud' - for several reasons, too....

I think they should not go over 5" with the Galaxy S range, that's Note territory. I really don't think any more than the old 441 PPI will make any difference at all, and if anything, they should have made the Note 3's resolution higher...

I am using my Note 3 and Galaxy 4 as coffeee coasters. Buying Samsung again? Uh....no. If you can't let yur customer enjoy having the latest phone for longer than months.....you won't have any.

The sequels to their flagship releases have come out 11-12 months after their predecessors for many years now. I don't see how that's a problem. Look it up if you disagree.

Just because you may have been a late adopter doesn't mean Samsung's release schedule is flawed.. Not to mention it's up to you to purchase what you'll ultimately be happy with, regardless of what's coming down the hill.

They seriously shouldn't make it any larger than 5" because 5.24" is only like .4 of an inch away from the note 3. They don't have to make it bigger every time, and they should intead focus on a better build and larger battery.
