That guy in the pic is trying so hard to make look the phone comfortable to hold... But the reality shows that is very awkward to hold a 7 inch device in that position.
You will look like a fool when answering this phone in middle of the street.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014It is good for gaming on this phone and read e-books.You wouldn't want to read a book on that, I bet the density will be so low you wish you'd rather had a kindle paper white!
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014for smartphone 4' to 5' is good
for notes 5' to 6' is good
more than 6'inches are phabs or tabs.Its very silly now. They call a 7 incher a "smartphone".
There is no specification saying 5 inch = phone or 6 inch = phatablet.
In the future if they call a 10 incher a "smartphone" .. i gonna facepalm.

Lol... pity the people shown in the picture clip...
They must be forced to put a giant tab on their ears.
Why so many haters? I think the bigger the better, and I would easily get one of these instead of a tablet or as a backup from my Note 3. It isn't even ugly, it's just big. So stop hating, you haters it's so annoying reading the comments on any Samsung news and find that so many people are bashing.
A big DUH to all looking at this dating is a huge phone. Samsung Tabs and bigger Note series have call functions for YEARS.
7" tablets do make calls. And now they mention this 7" device as a phone instead of a tablet, you all react like when the first 5.3: Galaxy Note came out 2 yeasts ago.
kr1682, 02 Jun 2014Flood the market with phones and confuse the customer is what Samsung's mantra is. What purpos... morethat's exactly what people said three years ago when the first Galaxy Note was launched.
and now take a good look at all phone manufacturers today. they all trying hard to imitate Galaxy Note.
i'll skip this version, and wait until samsung launched 10-inch Galaxy S10 smartphone on 2019 :p
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014sami has lost their minds.... total bullshit... are robots designing these "smartphones&q... moreAnd you probably said the same about the original 5.3" Note.
Android is about choice. 7" isn't for me but it may suit others. 5.5 to 6" is perfect for me..
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014This is not a smartphone samsung its a tabletPhablet ;-)
Launch event reads: Next Mad Thing!
It's the forerunner to the 12inch "phone"...
To be used in mental institutions.
What is the difference between this and the Galaxy Tab 7"???
Were the designers high or was it just the marketing guys who decided to call it a phone.
