Vj14, 16 Dec 2015Bigger is better? No way, 6 inch phone doesn't fit in hand and in Jeans pocket!It will, if they can keep the bezels at minimum. My Note 3 slides in to pocket just fine, and I can use it single handedly more or less easily, and if I see right then Note 5 is even more narrow than Note 3, so that is even more easy to use. So if there is a device which is 6 inches and slightly bigger than Note 5 then I am totally okay, but yes if its anything like Nexus 6, then God NO.
I own a 4.7" phone, but I couldn't say that a phone is "too big". Why? Because some folks use their devices as a multimedia device, "bigger is better" certainly counts for them. They don't need a phone for one hand as I do, they need a big screen. Conclusion: don't get frustrated if smartphones are getting big. Look at the statistics of world smartphone sales, there you'll see that over 60% sold phones have screens UNDER 5 inches of size.
everything from samsung gets bigger and bigger soon they need to fold or roll
a new bigger device just to fit in the pocket.

mcknight, 15 Dec 2015Most boring company in the world.. YawnnBother much, it is not? There is much people in East Asia and in North America that is troubled with Samsung. Feel so bad because Samsung it is one of the biggest companies of world and it is from South Korea, specially japanese, chinese and americans, fanatics of their own brands, xenophobs and imperialists.
Finally...Samsung is going large again. 6" is perfect for the A9, but they should at least make another Mega variant with updated specs and a 6.3" display.
If the dimensions of the s7plus are true then it will be a huge phone. It has almost the same height as that of the l1520 which is a huge phone.
Kharak Gurung, 16 Dec 2015I am disguised with it size. If Huawei Ascend Mate 8 can provide 6.0" display in dimension 157... moreHuawei have the advantage by putting fingerorint scanner at the back. Samsung's is at the front.
I am disguised with it size. If Huawei Ascend Mate 8 can provide 6.0" display in dimension 157.1 x 80.6 x 7.9 mm, why not Samsung can? The size of A9 is 161.9 x 81.3 x 7.34mm, which approximate taller by 5 mm than Huawei Ascend Mate 7 or 8. People will definitely prefer bigger screen in smaller dimension of size.
I am so glad Samsung is considering 6 inches devices, with the kind of displays they have, bigger is always better.
muya, 15 Dec 2015Thicker is Better. iPhone 6S Plus is thicker and 20gram more heavy than Last Generation iPho... more The iPhone 6s plus is 192 grams ;not 200. And that's because of the 3D touch display and the new 7000 aluminium
The specs of the A9 are bullseye - except for the sealed battery. But that the difference to the J series. Waiting for the J9.
