Ok then.

5.8 and 6.3 i think samsung is violating the principles of tablet. Worsestil gsm arena didn't mention how rediculously large those'll be.
This is plain nonsense.
I'd prefer an iphone with 4" screen to these colossal bricks!

No problem with the 5.8" if that's what they want. The market will decide on the success of that size. Samsung should likewise increase the battery capacity on that device with that screen size. Don't skimp on battery capacity, Samsung. Motorola gave the mobile world an example 2 years ago. Others ought to take that route. Those who did not are still wondering why their sales are plummeting despite the hype and marketing place on their flagship devices. Also, 2GB of RAM should be the standard. Let's just hope that they release it with a Quad-core, then I think I may be buying from them again.

You also know what kind of plastic quality they use in there phones. Samsung have n numbers of phone who achieved the selling numbers in millions but iphone is only who can compete with them all.

But you're saying that because from you're pov,Samsung has actually sold hundred of millions of stupid products to hundred of millions of stupid people. But tell me this, why are the Galaxy S, S II and S III, each have won the smartphone of the year award if they're such a stupid products? Shouldn't we be thinking that the products that win the smartphone of the year award should actually be the smartest products?

You do know that those three phones of the Galaxy S series alone if combined have managed to sell over 100 millons, do you? And the Note + the Note II, over 30 millions? Or is it 40?

I have my Note II for the last couple of months,I really loving it, but actually I wanted a little bit bigger screen. Well done Samsung.

By reducing the bezel size, yes, Samsung will fit this screen in a pocketable device.

Waiting for it.

And besides, everyone who understands knows that the real monster that will rule them all -smartphones or phablets and even tablets alike- is still going to be the next gen Note, a.k.a. The Note III. It's the only one that I'm waiting for.
And if you're having a hard time coping the mere size of it, then you shouldn't even be thinking about it. It's definately NOT for you.

If they're such a retarded company, then why are they selling hundred of millions of their smartphones (better then any, and I mean ANY other company out there-maybe even better than all of them combined) and also managed to win several smartphone of the year awards along the way? Care to explain?

If you dont like big screens, dont buy it. There is a big choice out there. Stop complaining and wining.

samsung is the ABSOLUTELY more rrrreetarded company in this phone game. They have done nothing to this market except increase number of processors and sizes of screens. This is no longer a phone. samsung has destroyed the meaning of "mobile phone" and portability. the galaxy note is neither a phone nor a tablet. infact its pathetic excuse for both.
