I love big screens but 6.1 is stupid.

If the rumour is true then a 6.1 is barely a phone, that is super niche and Huawei do not have Samsungs marketing budget to make that sized "handset" worthwile.

I still get iPhone 4 & 4S users calling my HTC One X huge. Walking and talking into a 6.1" thing next to your ear would get you some crazy crazy looks

It may be too early...but surely a sign of Samsung getting eaten up. Other android mobile manufacturers now mark product to product as it is now a master of the game. U need to inject real innovation culture within Samsung.

Haha this is just stupid! Now i hope people who are saying that 4inch screen is a tiny screen will all see and understand where this size race is going! 4inch is a good size, 5inch is already HUGE device, anything above 5inch is way too much! Its a phone for god sake! Not tablet or TV!!! But 6.1inch? How to hold this thing and make a call? I bet stupid Samsung and his upcoming Note 3 will be aprox 6.5inch! and good luck for people owning this idiotic devices! Ohhhh i know, now Note 2 owners will say that im talking bulshit because Note 2 is so perfect size,,,,,, haha yeah,,, its perfect size for a backpack!

6.1 inch display + the border width and bezel will probably put the length close to 7 inches

yeah no thanks, note 2 was already pushing it

huawei should've just made a 7 inch tablet instead
