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


That can be called "Phablet"... phone + tablet = phablet

see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phablet

If people want this I see no problem with Samsung building it. I want a Note 2 but 6.3 is a bit large for me.

Note 2 = 5.5"
Note 3 = 6.3"

Think about it, if it had a near edge-to-edge screen and no buttons it wouldn't be much bigger, if any.

If it had similar sized bezels to the note 2, then it will be ridonkulous.

My note2 fits very comfortably in my hand and my pocket (with space to spare, even when wearing a case).

Yes this note3 seems big and will be mocked, but meh - it'll fit.

I see people using the note and it looks ridiculous. Even on guys that are huge and have sausage fingers. 6+ inches is just silly.

Have you ever used one? Have you ever held one in your hand and actually use it? If you haven't, try it. Believe me, as a former iPhone user, once you hold a Note 2 on your hands and use it, you will never want another smaller phone again.

I went from an S3 to an i5 no problem!

The iPhone 5 is a fine piece of hardware, no doubt, but the fact is the Note 2 can do more.

1. Micro SD card slot
2. Very long lasting and exchangeable battery
3. Very customizable UI
4. Much better multitasking
5. Multiview Screen

Five things that may not be important to some, but are very important to others when buying a phone.

Who has their phone to their ear anymore? Most people, I think, use bluetooth or buds.

1. That will only be a factor for most people if the internal storage isn't enough. I'm using less than half of the storage on my 64GB iPhone. It wouldn't hurt to have the option though.
2. iPhone lasts a day; any more than that makes no difference to me as I charge overnight. Nobody is going to complain about a longer lasting battery though.
3. Had three Android phones. Eventually I got bored of customising it. I find I use my iPhone more for actual stuff (playing games, watching videos, talking to people) than customising. This isn't a negative for Android, I just think I needed a change. :p
4. Debatable. I never find iOS multitasking lacking and it's much better for battery life. Push notifications are a much better system than just letting apps run amok in the background. Wakelocks are a major problem on Android for a lot of people. I was a guide on a popular Android website and helped hundreds of people with wakelock problems.
5. Cool feature, but not sure how useful it will be on such a small screen. I haven't used it though so I won't comment on whether it's good or not :p

They're both excellent devices in their own right... I loved the S3 so I would love the Note 2 too, I'm sure. Just fancied a change!

I watched the Note 2 announcement. The S Pen features are very cool.

I'm just thinking... do I really need to multitask that much on my phone? It's usually a bit of gaming, listening to music, browsing the web/forums, texting, taking pics, that kind of thing.

I have a phone, tablet and desktop PC for varying levels of complexity. I never need to do anything complex when I'm out and about, and when I'm at home I can just use one of the other two.

I have used the S-Pen quite a bit. Very useful. The multiview feature is great too.

That is a valid point. Almost no one.
