We don't need any stupid camera... give us speed, BIG battery, BIG display, BIG storage and BIG durability ;)
Who need camera?
4mp and HD video = enough!

Who care for cameras, just bring the phones with 32GB built-in storage and 3GB of RAM with Snapdragon CPU sport LTE and everybody will be happy.

> In reply to Where is 64gb? @ 2013-08-26 11:57 from PGXj - click to readagreed, but i think samsung have listened after the debacle with the s4, and they realized, in their company policy not long ago they confirmed they were dropping 16gb from ALL future flagship series phones, and 32gb would be the new standard minimum, and the note 3 is the first device to recieve that new direction, hopefully they will stick to that, but im sure they know it makes sense to listen to their customers, hense why they rapidly released apps to sd back which did help a lot

If that huge and bulky camera with OIS - Galaxy Zoom - is any indication, even Galaxy S5 won't be a match for Lumia 1020.
It won't even have the big lens to help it a bit.

aslong as the note 3 has a good battery life, the same size as the note 2 but with a bigger screen, then i wouldn't mind if it didn't have OIS, i allready know the camera and video quality will still be good.
