Even samsung know it is hard to grip, thats why they make the phone taller then narrower with the note 2 and include one hand usage software. Note 1 is wider and harder to grip.

one problem of huawei is their product always get a little internal storage while the other company like Sony or HTC has get started using larger internal storage (main most 16GB but they got 32GB product and even HTC for never considered internal has bumped to 64GB(One X+) while Sony has starting the 32GB)

I had it confirmed that Huawei didnt consider them to be defective since all their USB modems were like that. But sure, go ahead and "save" your money on a Huawei =)

Way too big for me, my galaxy note 2 is large enough. Even if Samsung will introduce smartphone - anything larger than 5.5 inches, I will not purchase that, non depending of how good it will be. All I want is the same size but 1080p SuperAmoled, faster CPU, GPU, bigger battery. + may be better image camera, 8 mega pixels is totally fine, but less noise would be great. Thanks.

Samsung invented phablet? Sorry but just like ALOT of other Samsung and Apple Fanboys, you are misinformed.

Nokia had a Tablet phone way back in the early 2000's.
And you must haven't heard about the Dell Streak that came out years BEFORE the Note.

Now on topic, this phablet game is getting kinda out of hand literally. You can't hold a 6.1 inch device with that much bezel. They will have to rid the device of most of that bezel in order for it to be considered user friendly.

The specs are very nice though.

Is it a big phone or small tablet? I'd call it a tablet because you need both hands to use it.

I know Samsung is much better, but the price for the same hardware is just too high.

I'm ahead of the curve. My phone is called Nexus ... sth and it's 7 inches. It's awesome but it has started feeling small, so I'm thinking to upgrade to one other nexus that is 10 inches. It will be the most awesomest phone I'd ever have !!1!1!

Those who want a XXL phone will continue to buy Galaxy Note 2, and those who cannot afford Note 2 will not buy Huawei as well, they will just continue to post here that the Huawei is better than Note 2.

Keep moving, nothing to see her, just another crappy china phone.

What's the aspect ratio? Looks like 16:10 to me (like the first Note). If that's the case, then it's toooo wide!

And 4000 mAh battery, that's great.

Interesting, but it's coming close to a 7" tablet.
I currently own a Galaxy Note II, and it's big.
It's pocketable, but anything bigger probably won't be.
So, a 6.1 incher probably won't fit any pockets :)

Its great, but i'll w8 for next note because of its software experience, it will be better than any other phablet from any other company because samsung invented phablet and have 2 generations of phablets before any other OEM. its a big advantage...
