They all look exactly the same. Looks to me like that if there's no external change then you think it is cr*p! Keep changing the externals and you have what? Extra costs for manufacturing. Extra costs for keeping different sized parts (think screens). That is D.U.M.B.
It is the one thing I think Apple has done well. New model, hey it fits in the same case. Pretty much a no brainer for me. And NO, I am not an Apple Fanboi. Haven't got one, never will.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2013awesome! i hate s3/note2/s4 rounded look ...welcome back gorgeous note1!I personally like the rounded look for larger devices. Plus it makes it way more ergonomic. I like the brick look for smaller devices
mixa, 28 Aug 2013Samsung can't afford to waste time on new designs, cos if they do that, Sony will stomp them i... morePreference of material does not equal quality. Just because something is covered in glass does not mean it's built better. In fact it means it's heavier, more costly, less, malleable, more fragile, and generally no removable battery.
And just because you hear a rumor that someone might have something does not make it fact. DO you know the difference? And just because someone is "supposedly releasing" a feature does not all of a sudden mean they worked on it first, invented it, or will release it first.
johnroby, 28 Aug 2013Lols look how they this form going back to Galaxy S2 design, i think LG have better design pro... moreReally? Even though it's starting to strikingly resemble Samsung? But Samsung's is ugly? That sure makes a lot of sense....Not. fanboy
[deleted post]Oh Yeah. Really. Apple has culture to come up with radical designs. SONY has a culture of coming up with new technology and dumping it for companies like sammy.
Sammy has a culture of COPYING. Moreover, I have never seen apple or sony guys staring at any other guy's phones. SAMMY guys.. oh.. see at their phone.. or his or that.. dumb. Dude.. Apple and SONY is CLASS AND PREMIUM. What is Sammy Cheap plastic COPY and fake marketing? I am not buying sammy cheap again. I am Daring you to change me perception. lolz.

Dont tell me what they are. S-Pen is dumb sh**. Try buying any WACOM tablet for CAD designing and then talk to me. S pen is for those who think.. wooow.. this is so advanced. BS. Its 10 year old tech. nothing new in tht.
Ok now they are going too far, 4k HD camera??? what the hell are we gonna use that for? and 4K HD screen cost a lot... too much...
mandarin, 28 Aug 2013Yeah,atleast pencil is not the only thing it works with.....besides what would you do when you... moreHow can you loose your precious S-pen? The answer is, you can't. How can you loose it when just a couple of meters apart and your phone starts beeping. That's why it is called advanced. It's not like your old chopstick stylus from the 90's.

Better design... What design?
This is like iphone3 to iphone4 to iphone5 super design awards fiasca all over again.
Mobile tech is getting boring............
Theres not even a single piece of innovation worth mentioning.
Pro.DigiVid, 28 Aug 2013OMG.. Phablet of the trolls is finally here - Switched to old Note 1 design. So innovative ... moreO yeah, and you're the one saying that using any sharp and pointed object is better than the advanced S-pen with Wacom Digitizer. How brilliant of you. Good luck carrying pencils with you all the time. O, maybe you could just ducktape a pencil to the back of your phone. Lol
TheNeighbor, 28 Aug 2013Right... It also has a Wacom digitizer. Ever heard of z ultra......
[deleted post]Right... Because Samsung had no competition, therefore we were forced to get the Note? Yes, we're idiots.
[deleted post]You're comparing because Samsung devices caters to be affordable?
Pro.DigiVid, 28 Aug 2013OMG.. Phablet of the trolls is finally here
- Switched to old Note 1 design. So innovative ... moreFor better design you buy a pyramid from Egypt.
Cheap plastic? Please compare manufacturing cost of s4 and iphone5.
Super amoled is bad ! You still don't know what is the importance of high contrast.
Super amoled is best with high contrast and wide viewing angle.
You don't like octa core? Please make a processor for yourself.
Actually now Sony and HTC following Samsung note series .
[deleted post]You can't do much with iPhones. Not even being able to transfer files directly.
TheNeighbor, 28 Aug 2013Whatever you say, bottom point is the Note II and III is beating all others in this category ... moreNote 3 has same internals as other phablets or G2 and upcoming phones,and touchwiz is most sluggisg of all android ui,so how exactly will it be better than the others in performance,just because sammy fanboys think so does not make it true....
The Cosmicist, 28 Aug 2013A sealed battery is not impractical. That's why everybody but Samsung is doing it. Because nob... moreIt's practical for me since I'm a heavy user. I'm always on the move. I don't have to plug in and wait for hours to get power restored. What can't you get?
