I just flashed my original Galaxy Note to have that function. The S Pen has been great for drawing. The Iphone does not offer those functions & would be silly with is tiny screen. The iPhone is a mid-ranged functioning smartphone. It's damn good at its category. Samsung S3 and Note2 are small computers with phone functions. Your iPhone can't even transfer files directly or let alone connect to media directly.

The s3 is already huge. Heck even the note 2 is huge. To some these are already considered huge phones. Some say the screen is too big. I think it's way too big for a phone. But you fandroids say its good, its good! Its great! Bigger display! blah blah blah, apple iphone display small. blah blah blah. Bigger is better as a lot of frandoids will quote when trolling apple units. Now someone comes a long, tops samsung with a 6.1 inch screen size, now the same samsung fanroids say, the 5 inch and 5.5 inch is perfect and a 6.1 inch is too big? WTF is this b.s If Apple made a 5 inch screen before samsung did, you guys will probably accuse it of making a way too big phone. LOL, so predictable, its hilarious. You guys accuse apple fan boys of being brainwashed, no more then Samsung. lol.

IF apple made a 5.5 inch phone, then Samsung makes 6.1 inch, they will say 6.1 inch is perfect. You Samsung lovers are obviously predictable.

Huawei does not get it. One of the features why I got the Galaxy Note when it came out was its active Wacom S Pen functions and pocketable size. Or it just is an ordinary 6" tablet with phone functions that can't fit my top shirt pocket.

6.1 is a step too far in my opinion, I love big screen phone's but 5.5 is on the limit of a smart phone.

6.1 wont be any bigger than the current Note 2.
there will probably be far less bezel on this device keeping the same overall dimentions.

Huawei is still focusing on competing with something that already exists, while Samsung is pushing the bar to the next level.
It also looks as though Samsung has found two levels of perfect sizing. I hope they hold the 5.5" design when it comes to the phablet category(ie Note3), as it seems they decided 5" is perfect for a smartphone(ie GS4).
If Huawei wants to make a splash, they will need to get something into the American market, which is currently being dominated by Samsung and Apple, and focus on products to come rather than current trends.
It seems Apple is begining to fear Samsung, and recognize that they are falling behind, judging by the frivilty of their lawsuit. They must see Samsung expanding their research base, and producing new products faster than they can "re-design" existing ones(ie iPhone 4S).

**sorry for the book, this is why I never comment, just read and read...ha ha.

It's a typical fanboy response from the SamDroids

I didn't want anything bigger than SGS2 but if SGS4 comes with 5" then i goto check out what others' has to offer before i'll consider buying SGS4.
