Most important thing for a phablet is aspect ratio.
The G-Note-1 is a perfect 16:10 (1280 x 800) - just right for browsing and photo-viewing - and the reason for the runaway success of the market's first proper phablet.
But with the G-Note-2, Samsung have narrowed the screen down to 16:9 (1280 x 720) ... which has turned it from a phablet back into a large phone where too much page-scrolling's required for comfortable web-browsing.
Unfortunately, it looks as if HTC is about to fall into the same trap with the One-X.
If only these companies had sufficient insight to see what it is that makes a particular product a success.
The G-Note-1 is spoilt by the abysmal Pentile display, but is otherwise, the ideal phablet.
But instead of capitalising on its amazing success, they've goofed by retaining the Pentile display and returning to a non-phablet aspect ratio.
The fantasy device would be the G-Note-1 with non-Pentile display, quad-core processor, HTC styling and beefier battery - even at the cost of a thicker device.
Mobilemaster, 08 Sep 2012HTC, you should learn from me. If you want more success with this one, then add these in plus:... moreYes i agee with u..i compete other smart phone ,this phöne will be 12 mp camera,gd battery..n high storage capacity n high ram
The phone specs I would buy:
Quad Core 1.8-2.1 Ghz
12MP Full HD camera
5" screen in a small phone
130 x 70 x 8 mm
Price ~600 euro
That's what I call a phone for 2012!
5" wow impressive, but the sales will go low for too small 1800 battery!
HTC, you should learn from me. If you want more success with this one, then add these in plus: 2100 mAh of battery(to compete with the S3), 12 MP camera with good sensor(to beat the S3 and Note 2), add 2 Gb of Ram and add a memory card slot. These features are enough for this phone to be a success!!!
how the hell would HTC release a device with only 1800ma batt and 1 gig of ram. that is so unacceptable. htc is going down. I just hope this leak isn't true.
I would wait for it, if it had more RAM. Now, I don't think it's worth it... I'll just get the one X
Quad core - 2Ghz
2500 mAh battery
Ok so its Tegra 3 AP37, 28nm process.. That will save some battery i guess?
wanna sold well,,,,u need to update ur RAM,CPU and Camera.... it is old and the same....
Are you kidding 1800 mah... thats crap..I had desire HD but I gave up because of battery.. it's shame 1800 on 5"..
