If it comes with an S-Pen what will be the use of the note? Doubt it will.

SamSuunnn..... What? Did I just fall asleep on Samsung's "Creativity"?

Forgive me, I'm just a bit tired (of Samsung's uncreativity).

Simple. Cause this people like android more than ios n window. Im also too. But that the past now. Im switching to nokia lumia 920 cause it really have a good hardware than samsung n all other brand.

No cheap plastic like Lumia 920 and no cheap aluminium like iphone5, Samsung know how to use use expensive materials and they dont mind the price, they are not greedy like Apple and not desperate bankerupt as Nokia.

How can Xperia V get full score in reviews and the 920 fail again and again to make reviewers really exited, they like it but theres no love for it, compared to Galaxy S3, Note 2 and Xperia V reviews from the same reviewers.

And this the fans are saying about 920 being so solid and well built?? We already know the Xperia Acro S is more solid than Lumia 920, and in addition its water proof. Its even shatter proof, as we saw in video the 920 display was shattered when thrown in a wall, the Acro S does not.

Using a 920 as a hammer? Sorry to say they copied it from a Saudi Arabian review of Xperia Acro S.

And this

About this news, i have a Note 2 now and i would welcome S-pen on Galaxy S4, the rumor that its thicker than S3 makes me positive as it could mean huge battery, that would be great.

Now the problems, Full HD is a given but im afraid the matrix wil be Pentile, with the low brightness and other disadvantages. What if it has a blue tint to white colors like the S3 and S2 and S before it?

And what if it comes with the same touchwiz? After seeing Sonys take on Jelly Bean i honestly look forward to saying goodbye to the nature UX and touchwiz menus, the S4 better be the greatest ever if i am to get this instead of Sony. No blue tint to white, no dim pentile, with S-pen, battery 3000+. IF those 4 requirements are met then i may forgive the messy and inconsistent touchwiz nature ux.

Is it? Is it possible to be that shameless copycat as apple is and then even use the stolen feature as the highlight of iphone5 features? So tasteless, i be the first to say that Galaxy S and S2 where tasteless copies of iphone 3 but apples copying is more tasteless now. I want noting to do with this company, a half eaten apple is already blasphemic and distgusting and then this arrogant shamelessness in addition.

this rumor is stupid, unless some marketing genius in Samsung is about to get fired.

Why would you cannibalized the single outstanding feature in another of your own flagship product? Namely, Galaxy Note series.

I own a Note 10.1 and really like the Spen, but I'm really not sure how much good it would doon a 5" screen, not to mention the dent it would put into Note 3 sales as some people here noticed.

Here's hoping this rumor doesn't turn out to be true.
