Very good devices, i m looking forward to buy one of them,
samsung making what consumers really wants since they want bigger screen but at the same time it should be pocketable since even tablets aren't pocket able.

I will use this as my next tablet.

No, Seriously.

I am still using my original galaxy tab 7.0
I find it perfect for use while commuting in trains and bus. I use it as my gps device while driving too.

The 6.3 mega will have just 81% screen size of the original tab, but the overall size is very slim and it is incredibly light. I hope they sell at a "mid range" or low price.

The South African market is really on the edge of their seats for this one but at what cost? Seeing as the SIII will get the same updates at a later stage I feel it's safe to say that the next big flagship should be the Note 3.

Even though the Note 2 will stay superior to a lot of phones that will be launched.

So in simple terms - The Snapdragon 600 will be the only reason for upgrade.

qHD on a massive display like this turns my stomach around. I can barely stand the display on my Note2. And it really is just too big. The Note2 is the limit regarding to the size of the handset. Anything more and you can't use it with one hand, nor is it pocketable. Why don't you just buy a 7 inch tablet?

People are not buying Samsung as a fashion statement. Touchwiz is a big negative, but it's technically superior. They are not for everyone, but they created this segment and they will sell like hot cakes. But not for me. The S4 is my next phone, but it is a bit big too.

Only for aliens. S4 design will be copied to gazillions of devices.

And next year, Samsung releases the Galaxy Maximus Prime, a 14 inch smartphone.

Rolling out devices is fine. But, price should be reasonable. 6.3 one should be 350 euro and the 5.8 inch one 300 euro.
