EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW :/ :/ A 7" phone..Probably Samsung's phone dept head doesn't wear a pant...Next year it would be a 24" Dumbphone Galaxy BS series...Samsung is loosing their brains...I hope Samsung starts falling down!!!!!!!
Oh ! That will NOT help my plans to buy the Huawei X1 !
If Samsung can rip off people with a price of
> over $500.- (!) US dollars for that medicre spec - then Huawei no doubt will be encouraged to price their much superior HUAWEI HONOR X1 EVEN HIGHER !
Why , Huawei has taken forever to release their X1 !
It was first reported in FEBRUARY, and said to be released in march. Then it was said to arrive in April. And then it was to be delivered in May. Now the rumour is that it will come in June ( OK, you get the picture, right ? Isn't it June already ? )
Why woukd I buy that Samsung , if there's a much better 7"-incher coming soon. Or have Samsung bought Huaweis' new up-and-coming star, to eliminate competition ?
I'll keep the faith - one day that Huawei X1 might actually become available , or ?
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014Now Samsung seriously should start manufacturing jeans for such big phonesAgreed.. but they won't since they'd have to buy the material from North America
Dont know whether to be happy or sad or laugh or cry on release of this phone

It might be worth looking it up before making smug posts which extol the 'virtues' of consumer markets that are primarily interested in 'bling' products

3kdark, 02 Jun 2014I'm a Samsung user but I must ask who is the target market for such a device??You cant read? It says in Korea. And its gonna sell well all over South East Asia, this is surely one of Samsungs new bestsellers but they are late, people been asking for this for a long time.
Its could sell well outside Asia also, many females like big phones, but i doubt Samsung bothers to launch this in Europe, the European market matures too slowly, always the last to catch new trends and carrier deals in most of Europe doesnt favor midrange phones anyway. Russia otoh is a given for this one, a very adaptive and up to date market.
Samsung took the phrase "go big or go home" waaaayyy yo serious. This looks ridiculous.

Lots of people slagging it off but I still think it'll sell well. Woman in the UK would go crazy for this. I work for phones4u and all women want is note3 or HTC one max. The bigger the better.
3kdark, 02 Jun 2014I'm a Samsung user but I must ask who is the target market for such a device??A neighbor and I went to the store to buy a smartphone. After seeing some phones, she asked if there is bigger one. Finally, she bought Tab2 7.0 . And I was shocked.
Hahahahhahaa samsung has gone crazy, ,, that picture just looks so retarded lol
hooray! at last i found a phone which can be used as a cricket bat. thank you samsung. this world will certainly perish if not for your excellence in innovation.
I belive it's a good ideea. Surely it will be hard to use a 7 inch phone with one hand, but la larger screen has ít's benefits. I belive we will see even bigger phones than this with 8-9 inches display
I'm a Samsung user but I must ask who is the target market for such a device??
I personnally wouldn't use a device anywhere near that size (currently, 5.1 - 5.2 is my max).
But I don't think this "phablet" is aimed at the European or US market, but most likely for South Korean and maybe other Asian countries.
From what someone told me, many of them use tablets as phones over there, so phones of that size are actually well received.
Samsung is just following the market, that's all..
Surprisingly enough, I know people who use 8'+ tablets for calls.
It looks odd, but honestly, many people talk very little on their phones, compared to browsing, messaging and gaming. As GSMArena states on their Mega 6.3 review, everything but calls is better on larger screen.
You basically want a 2' disply phone for talking only and a 12' tablet for gaming, brwosing, messaging, etc. So a 7' phone is not that bad. The only downside is that you don't have pockets large enough to fit them.
