Oh samsung only 5.9" phablet, and I was waiting for 20" phablet/laplet smartphone, which I can Carry in backpack, and I will need to hire somebody to hold it to my ears, while I'm calling someone with this device......... :)

It just kills you guys that Samsung brings these things out and people flock to them, to the tune of Samsung selling more smartphones than any other manufacturer.

I think this was expected to have the Note III as a bigger version of the S4. I like what will be coming with the Note III, but I hope that it'll be a upgrade from the Note II OR it may suffer the same fate as the S4..............having a phone that isnt that much different from the Note II. Cant wait till the end of the year because Im going to get either the Note II or Note III.......depending on price of course

This is exactly why I'll pass on the note III because the differences aren't going to be substantial enough to make me leave the Note II.

I cant argue with that. I hope im wrong when I say that mobile technology has started to plateau.

This is going too be sweet. Can't wait for the Samsung Youm. Glad I skipped the GS IV. Can't wait for IFA.

Damnit, I wanted it to be an even 6'' Awhell, i'll still buy it to replace my Note 2 that replaced my Note 1. And im fine with poly plastic bodies. Metal framed phones get perma dented when dropped, poly phones just bounce back. HTC one and apple fanboys can hate in their ignorance. Go Note, or go home

I don't think that the Note 3 needs to be any larger than the Note 2.

It's just too much...5.7" and keeping about the same physical size as the Note 2 would have been perfect. This way Samsung is both risking loosing existing Note 2 owners for an upgrade and also scaring away potential new customers with the 'mega' forma factor... It's a shame Samsung.

What I want to know before buying the Note 3(III) is if Google will release a Nexus Ver. of the phone like they did with the S4. Cause I was shocked when they did that. And if they do that with the Note after I Buy it, I'll be really upset.

I really, really doubt it, since Google would have to support via software the S-Pen....

Well, I can't say I'm not disappointed in the out come of the screen size, but it's alright, I still gotta wait see what's good with the Sony Togari before I make any kind of move. Disappoiting Samsung, disappointing indeed.

Then the Galaxy Note 4 will have a 6.5 inch screen (I think they will like may the Mega 2 Bigger like 7 inches and so)

Shut up iboys.LOL Making the screen bigger , doesen't mean always that device will be bigger. See S3 and S4 . The 5'' S4 is smaller and ligheter than 4.7" S3 . Right? Same will be with Note 3.

(Am I the only one who is hoping for "Understandable" screen that was rumored a while ago?) What I'm still looking for (from this brand in particular) : 1# Build Quality Improvement 2# Battery Improvement
