Now things are beginning to really get ridiculous. OK, so I personally have a Note 2 with its 5.5 inch screen and I think that's more than plenty. It is hard enough to hold it and operate it with one hand as it is with its massive 5.5 inch screen, but 6.3 inches? I don't think so. Enough is enough. How big is too big for a phone Samsung? Really?

The amazing thing is that there will be a lot of people out there that will buy it.

What do you guys think?

No joke, this is a Nexus 7, it's not much bigger!

6.3 inches for a phone is just excessive. And could something with a 6.3 inch display even fit into a normal pants pocket?

some wouldn't mind a 7" phone. If you must pack around a tablet around might as well be one with a cell phone in so its one less thing to have to pack around. If this model is too big for someone, a person always has the choice not to buy it. I "not buy" things i don't like everyday.

I agree, a 5.5" is the maximum size for a phone and also 8 cores!! in the last 4 days, i've only used all 4 cores at 1.6ghz for 30mins!
The maximum CPU it usually use is 1.1ghz

They should include a free bluetooth headset.

Its a tablet, not a phone, Although it functions with phone capabilities. Phones play videos, but you wouldn't buy a phone and sell your TV.

I have Note 2 as well.. But everyone is entitled to their preferences for the phone/tablet sizes and features.

I am interested in Note 3 ... I don't care about the size ... it fits in my pocket of my jacket, no problem. I have iPad 2 which I have to carry to places... Note 2 fits perfectly in my pocket and nothing to carry.. Plus Note has cell coverage in case you are in the restuarant or some places that do not have wireless hook up yet, for exanple: Texas Roadhouse.

They can increase the display size without increasing the body size.

Look at what Sony just did: the Xperia ZL has a 5" display and it is smaller than a Galaxy S3 (4.8"), Lumia 920 (4.5") and the Nexus 4 (4.7"). You just need good design and hardware engineers. Unfortunately for Samsung they are lacking in both areas.

Im relatively new to android but I always thought the Note was a small tablet, not a phone.
