The Cosmicist, 20 Jun 2013Of course it is. A billion-dollar marketing budget in a market segment with no competitors is ... moreA trillion dollar marketing would be a big waste when the product is bad. Where's your logic. The Note II is considered as the most advanced and most feature-packed Android gadget of it's time, even untill this day.
This phablet just needs a 20,000 mAh battery but then again due to the resource hungry os ,this phablet will last only 4 hours even with a 20,000 mAh battery. Sigh.
Gsizzle, 20 Jun 20136.2 inches? are you f!cking kidding me? For f!ck sakes, say No to Phablets. Yes to phablet! yes to phablet! yes to phablet!......
The Untouchable, 20 Jun 2013DOA? Note III? You made me laugh. You have no idea what the Note III will bring. You honestly ... moreOf course it is. A billion-dollar marketing budget in a market segment with no competitors is the reason for Samsung's Note success. This time around though, there WILL be competition. Lots of it. Sony and HTC (at least) are bringing out the big guns.
Like I said, the Note 3 will sell more, but if you want the best device, you'll get the Xperia or the One Max.
Problem is not with the phone makers, samsung or sony makes good phones under the limitation of a crap OS. The real issue is with android, power hogging and resource intensive. People just shuns phones with battery >3k and not quad core of at least A15s.
I'm sure the battery will be small. That's always been the problem with Xperia. Probably 6 hours of web/video.
The Untouchable, 20 Jun 2013DOA? Note III? You made me laugh. You have no idea what the Note III will bring. You honestly ... moreYeah just wait! Sony will prove why they are considered to be the best
in second photo system storage 2.24 GB omg really ? i dont wanna believe it
I mean what, and why these high specs, size ok targeting people who like bigger screens why other, what am i gonna run in this, that other simple dual core or 1.2 like quad core not, or the OS is that much crappy that need this much hardware to perform efficiently??
The Cosmicist, 20 Jun 2013You haven't kept up with the news. The Note III is DOA. It'll sell more, of course, because of... moreDOA? Note III? You made me laugh. You have no idea what the Note III will bring. You honestly think that the Note and the Note II success is based on Samsung marketing alone? Poor you. Like I said, this Xperia thingy will have nothing on the Note III. Just wait.
The Untouchable, 20 Jun 2013this will have nothing on the upcoming Note III. Mark my words.You haven't kept up with the news. The Note III is DOA. It'll sell more, of course, because of Samsung's billion-dollar marketing budget, but this phone will be thinner, water-resistant, better display, better build quality.
Between this and the PS4, I think the term "Sony'd" should become part of the lexicon.
this will have nothing on the upcoming Note III. Mark my words.

INDROID, 20 Jun 2013y didnt put complete 1080*1920 resolution n keep those buttons outside the display... on scree... moreAndroid is the first to introduced softkey buttons.. from honeycomb to ics to jb..
But its still the worse navigation ever.. and unusable for 10 inchers. i feel this will spread to sony tablet Z and this phablet.
1. 3 softkey in the middle with NO WAY to customize or MOVE it..
2. Play games and misclick those buttons..
3. Giant Phone UI for tablets in android 4.2 .. (Not much people know or understand this.. because no one buys 10 inch android tablets)
They better get their acts together and develop something different for 5.0.. else get stuck with that 3 physical buttons forever.
Use the multi-gesture from ipad, then use android .. you feel crap unless u root and install GMD GestureControl.. its that bad.
If the above given specs are correct then so far so good. Now what is left is how it is priced. Meaning obscenely priced or competitively priced.
y didnt put complete 1080*1920 resolution n keep those buttons outside the display... on screen buttons r out of league...

I am not exactly an Android fan, I am more of a WP/Nokia fan, but I like to keep a tab on what's new.
Coming from where I have been. I know precisely how it feels.
