95% of their sales are from nokia devices. A lot of that market will leave no nokia is owned by MS.
WTF is revolutionary about the iphone lol.
it's a touch screen device like the windows pda style devices had been doing for years prior to its release. ha
For the next few years Android will have pretty decent market but Windows is a big challenge for Android. Apple's iPhone is almost over but windows is growing really fast on application side and it is for sure that in 2020 Windows will be on top.
I am a software developer and all my friends who were working on Android and Apple had already started making Windows Applications which indicates something.
Tomorrow is the biggest day 4th September.
I bet everyone one of you that its screen will 0.18" bigger than note 2 but its size will be smaller than note 2. Just like S4 is smaller than S3 in size but have bigger display.
I love Samsung's Plastic Quality but they have so much pressure from above to give it metal finishing and even premier look.
Have been waiting for it since half a year.

what the HELL is this 3GB RAM are you kiting me,its the collest phone i ever SEEN!

I think the days of revolutionary devices (like the original iphone) are probably gone. While the Note 3 will be top of the pile when released it wont be much ahead of the competition and will no doubt be passed in the next 6 months. That's technology for you.

I say this after watching that prototype/rendering or whatever on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxBiQRCbhSI
by seeing where phones might get I think things are expected to be on a higher platform than what we already have now, At-least from Samsung..

2) scratch proof phones don't exist, waterproof is mostly a gimmick.
3) Haven't you seen the bezel? It almost doesn't exist. Any less and you keep touching the screen.
4) Android 5 doesn't exist
5) 4k is over kill, OIS would be nice, MP on a camera dont mean much.
6) Carbon fiber back would be nice. You can buy these aftermarket for the Note 2 so they will be available for the note 3.

It's unique that way though. Also I don't think the carbon fiber would shatter that easy. It is definitely durable and much better option as compared to glass/aluminum....But like you stated so is Poly Carbonate.
Mahven, 03 Sep 2013Been a Galaxy s2 user since its release, That was a revolutionary device when I bought It and ... moreThe problem with all that is no manufacturer can do a phone without a bezel strong and cheap enough yet, You can't make it waterproof and have removable battery, Andriod 5.0 is nowhere near finished and carbon fibre would shatter if you dropped the phone because it's only strong in certain ways and polycarbonate is still by far the best material for a big phone.
Been a Galaxy s2 user since its release, That was a revolutionary device when I bought It and they proudly sported a line saying It was the world's best smartphone and so it was.
I think, for Note III to be a revolutionary device, it should have been loaded with at least
* 6' screen
* Scratch/ Waterproof.
* Literally no bezel at all
* Android 5.0
* All those rumored 4k camera, OIS with atleast 16mp back and a HD front Camera and underwater recording(wasn't rumored).
* Also a showstopping carbon fiber back panel- Just to shut the arguments and fights about plastic and metal.
Trust me!! all the above isn't too much to expect at all..

Because it's flexible it absorbs shock better which is what you need on huge phones like this, but the tiny little iPhone can get away better with glass or aluminum because small screen means less surface area so is less likely to break, but big screens the shock just ripples through it and more likely to break so the shock absorbing of plastic helps reduce the energy going through.
And Samsung is by far the best at optimising power consumption so almost always get the best battery life.
Mili mj, 01 Sep 20133GB ram for what work !!! i thing it is not usefull..and just rise price...Then you please go to 3310 or Nokia 1100 because you no need high ram what's upgrade in hardware in your eyes?
