Idk what kind of ppl will buy this to use it for its purposes, like multitasking and stuff, yhe normal user cant use 30% of what his device is capable of so why bother, u can just buy a normal phone like idk nokia samsung or,apple , it doesnt matter what u like and than just a tabblet,

some people think retina is a technology, don't know who manufactures them, have never cared to understand PPI and pixel density...

1st, apple do not create their retina display. Other company made retina display for apple.

Ever heard or read about flexible amoled screen?? or transparent amoled screen?
samsung develops both

Just buy your own preferred mobile unit and stop bashing other undesired ones. That simple. No need to be haters. Bad attitude...

all you WP and iOS fan boys can go troll else where, this phone or should I say device is just amazing. Though some of you say it doesn't need more Cores or RAM but I say you do if you need more OS updates in future unlike WP where the Lumia 800 and 900 cannot get WP8 why because they can't handle it :P. The spilt screen feature is just amazing and I'm glad an Android based device has it first so Apple can't have it and start suing everyone that "copies" it.

this is the king of kings of phablets.

yoda: i feel a terrible disturbance in the force. i can feel the jealousy that radiates from other fanboys!

luke: never fear, master. with my galaxy note 2 with true multitasking, i will wipe out the competition all at the same time.

yoda: may the force of the galaxy note 2 be with you....

luke: and also with you...

My N900 was heavily used and never failed me, never reboot for no reson, never crashed. However i do admit that the first firmware was not good, some ppl had problems but more than 99% of the users the problems went away with the first update.

No ads, no pay, no bluffing, the N900 is the ultimate symbol of total freedom, it never asked for your creditcard number or filled your apps with ads from google or anyone else, and no OS restrictions. Phone for the outlaw biker, live wild and free.

Well wp and ios can't take advantage of big screens......but android can and it does.......don't ever expect this feature in wp atleast for 3 years......

and it has enough innovations under its hood....split screen, howering functionality....

android is not laggy anymore with 60 fps in jb....

Instead you make the original screen look "smaller & narrower" in a big phone such as SGNote2!

My n900 had to flashed in the shop i bought it from, the 2nd time it had to go to the nokia high level repair centre. In the end, i didn't dare download anything at all. My handset was slow like the n96 and n97. In all 3 phones, i had to remove the battery due to them freezing. For me, they were 3 expensive handsets that did not deliver.

I have a Nokia 3310 and it last for two and a half day. I love Nokia of the old but todays is bunch of crap. Their just bragging their pureview stuff but all it does is take crappy pictures. Nothing really special with it just naming their camera pureview so people would think there's really something in it actually it's just plain ordinary.
