For me its not the size that's the greatest issue. It is more about the functionality. Samsung have done wonders with the new Note software (much better multifunction support etc...) The other thing that Samsung have done so well is making use of the Stylus, which has improved so much from NOTE 1 to NOTE 2.

I still have Note 1 and love all that it can do. Unless another manufacturer can do something really serious with a stylus I will stick with Samsung and wait for the NOTE 3. In my opinion I think somewhere around 5.8 inches with minimal Baezel would be perfect.

They need to enhance their software to adapt better to their phones.

Sorry for my bad English

Overdoing. It doesnt even have an S-pen nor any of the software enhancement to be actually useful.

It would be almost as pointless as its brand name; Huawei

Before, putting a phone as big as Note 1 in the ears is awkward at first. Some users get used to it but sometimes they feel that something's not right. But this one? Besides not being pocketable is really going beyond what is normal when placed on the ears when making a call. They should provide a free bluetooth headset for this. 5 inch is the maximum for me. I want my phone to still be pocketable first of all and not hold it all of the time.

guys, dont you think a phablet will look good wihout the bezel? 6.1 without a bezel will be just as big as galaxy note with its bezel.... or maybe a little smaller.... maybe a little space for the front cam and sensors...

Nice specs but a bit large to hold. Anyway, I will buy it as long as the quality is good. I don't mind using chinese made phone if it's good

I accepted the Galaxy note 2 even though 5.5" was pushing it, but I found out I could easily do a one hand operation, but 6.1" is just going friggin overboard who the hell is gonna buy that, can you imagine holding something that big against your ears in public :()

Phablet phone is getting bigger nowadays. Next year standard will be 5"inch. sooner and later will become 6.1", 7" and then 10" inch. sounds like back to 80's carrying a big and heavy phone walking on the street. crazy..!!!!

I was rigth, you never used a Huawei smartphone. I'll tell you where Huawei really sucks, SOFTWARE! Not hardware. In Huawei G300 the programming really sucks, they even have repeated lines for the same things.

That's where they loose. That's why i use CyanogenMod Rom's
