The processor will be better, quad A15 vs. quad A9, and the video chip. For those that don't want an SPen, it should be a great phone "IF" it is 2500. At 2050, I will be a disappointment I think.
For the majority of people, it will probably be a better size than the "giant" note 2. The battery, if 2500, will be the largest out there less the Razr and Razr Maxx, right?
Besides, it's a phone, not a phablet. It doesn't try to be a phone/tablet cross breed like the Note 2.
P.s. I do have a note on order, but I do think the DNA will rock.
Droid X and root. Not overclocked.
