Rumor: Samsung to show a 4.99This year is coming to an end, which means one thing - next year's CES and MWC are near! This also means the "Company X will launch Y" rumors are heating up, including the rumor of a 1080p Super AMOLED display from Samsung. We've heard the rumor already but the new chatter adds more details to...

However, i do believe apple's biggest USP in d coming year might be their convenient size compared to top droids!

Actually, Samsung n the Droid army might be making an avenue for apple 2 sell more of their otherwise not so spectacular iphone by increasing the size of droids ever so ridiculously. People wanting decent specs at a comfy screen size might actually be forced to go with the overpriced iphones as they're more conveniently sized instead of the stellar specced Droids which are gigantically sized! I dunno what's gotten into the heads of these companies, doesn't ANY of them have any common sense? Where will this insane phone size trend end???

A fusion of phone and tablet, in case someone forgotten. A 5" phone should be categorize as a phablet already -_- I don't know the reasoning of people nowadays.. The larger the screen, the greater a phone is? Pfftt...

I don't understand the logic behind making phone screens bigger and bigger. It's quickly making phones bulkier. Not to sound even remotely like an Apple fanboy, but I found the iPhone 5 to be fairly comfortable to use with one hand. With my SGS3 I find that I keep having to stretch my thumb awkwardly and eventually end up using both hands. No, I don't have small hands. The SGS2's 4.3" screen on the other hand was far more comfortable. Seems that for a smartphone, one doesn't need more than 4.3" display, in my opinion anyway.

These are not fones anymore just a boring souless screen,,thats all your buying a screen..4 inch is max and would love clamshell android fone with 3 inch would get all 3 inches because the d-pad and qwerty would be in other part of clamshell.Their is no design anymore all companys have to do is buy a screen..

Hope this boring souless slab no design tablet/phones trend ends soon and the smallest fone is the trendiest.

Your both right.

mi is right that a phone (stress the word 'phone') shouldn't have screen bigger then 4.7". Seriously, it's meant to BE a phone first that can do more.

For those that want there device to do other things as a priority, there are phonblets like the fabulous Note2.

Two different devices satisfying different needs perfectly. Shouldn't be trying to blur the boundaries or make phones bigger and more awkward.

please please please samsung step away from the cheap plastic body that you create all of your phones with. As the Galaxy S series is the flagship phone for your company it should be built with a little quality. Like the nexus 4, solid feeling and beautiful to look at.

next year in 2013.
Galaxy SIV: 4.99" 1080p 441ppi screen.
iPhone 5S: 4" 640p 326 ppi screen.
Clearly, you can see who the winner is.

I thnk they all are gng mad. 5 inch phone, next will be 6 inch. Sony used 720 p display correctly on xperia s, but now 5 inc... Phones shoudnt be larger than 4.6 or 4.5 . Sharp is forcing manufacturers to makw 5 inch phones
