Why would they wait so long to make, then put out a weak version? If they gone make a phablet, they shud make it right. I'm still gon be searching for a 7 inch that's got sum guts!
As soon as it come out I'm going to purchase one. Hopefully it has a pen to it and the capacity to hold a large external micro sd card.
i am getting one for shure!! sounds big. but a great convo starter. not to mention if you have a problem with some body. you have a brick handy lol
When I was a child, we used large landline handsets against our ear. When the first cell phone came out, we watched in envy as others talked wirelessly on very expensive airtime. Now, I am 60+ with failing eyesight and shaking fingers ... If you think I'm going to mind having a 7" phablet next to my ear (when not on speaker) plus the convenience of a mobile computer at my fingertips .... you are so mistaken! Lol .... and I'm sure I am not the only baby boomer who feels this way! Come on Verizon ..... get off the stick!!! :)
i would definitely get the mega 7...im with tmobile have a LG L9 phone...and a 7in tablet would require me to add a seperate tiered plan (current promotion is free 1.2gb 4g lte data til the end of 2014)...a 7 inch smartphone with my current unlimited data no throttling @ 70.00/mo would mean no need for additional plan at additional cost. i rarely make outgoing calls and mostly communicate via google voice txting or email. so an all in one smartphone would save me money and my media consumption on a bigger screen would be more enjoyable.
NEWS FLASH!!!!!! no ones forcing anyone to buy it! If you like big phones get yourself one. If you like small, get one. other than that stop f**king complaining!

I presume u never really feel the need to pocket ur device Mr. Anomynous it's always at hand all through you're daily activities? It beats reason for comfortable mobility...mobile...movement...????
You don't suppose functionality is moving to smartwatches because they have bigger screens do you & while we use the gear they're trying to shove down our throats they expect the phones to have their own carrying cases and bags or rather easen it and have it pocketed.
MdN8, 24 Apr 2014Exactly. Maybe 4 inches if the design is right, like the 808. But if people want more, let the... more4 inches is the best, I have galaxy ace 3 and I can navigate all screen with one hand. That guy/gal who said 3.5 inch is the best must have a 5 year old hands lol
It will ultimately be a phablet or tablet according to the screen size and body dimensions.
What is wrong with most of people here? You don't like it? DON'T BUY IT. Everyone has DIFFERENT PREFERENCES for a smartphone. Some like big, some like small, some like tablet-size, some like tiny. You can always bash Samsung for creating a 7-inch smartphone, but when it's Huawei or another manufactuer, you are acting like it's a goddess or whatever.
Anomynous, 24 Apr 2014Go have a look in East Asia, noone is trying to put them in the pockets, where did you get tha... moreTrue! :) i want 7inch phablet too. Let the people buy what they want. I like the Huawei mediapad x1 compare to this but samsung has more advantages in my country. It will have a good rival for x1. :)
Stupid idea, whats next 10" or 14" phones, why go the whole hog and do a 22" mobile. what doubles as a TV.
at least!! and please, make a 24inch tablet with verrrry slim bezel, please please!!!! NO, better 31 inch!!!
make it with real small bezels and that would be great for me.
i need a big phone. my note 3 looks normal on me...
Jarret, 24 Apr 2014Samsung already have made 7 inches smartphone since 3 years ago - the Galaxy Tab 7.0Aha. thats a tab not a phone. thats like saying a landrover is a tractor cause its bigger. wow, normal tasks must be a struggle for you :)
kamikazi, 24 Apr 20147 inch phone? isn't that called a tablet?no. its a phone. 'smartPHONE'.
