I have to agree. I think the Note 2 is borderline acceptable. It's still not acceptable for most people. Anything bigger than the Note 2 will just be too big.

I don't see why some people are whining that the note 3 projected screen size is too big. If you think it's too big for you, get a smaller phone. End of story. For those of us who are 196 cm tall with big hands and long fingers, we welcome the larger screen size which will essentially be a full tablet/ereader replacement. I love my Note2, but I wish it was 6.3".

Interesting forecast. Only problem is that the MCSE certification has been deprecated long before even the Note 1 came out. The geezers who still have that are probability still using a Nokia 3310. And I have a feeling that we'll be moving to either neuro-implants or at least a heads-up-display well prior to a 17th version.

Note 2 is max size for me. I will not go bigger. The note 2 is border line too big. I love it and will not trade it for anything currently on the market. However, IF the screen can go bigger without the phone physical size, maybe. However, for my current hand size and the offset keyboard, even a larger screen and same size form factor will probably be no go. I'll defiantly go play with it in the store, but that is about it.

The thing is, the Note has features that are unique to that particular line. If the next model is too big, we can get other phones, but they won't have all the features. Furthermore, if they go to 6.3" and don't produce a 5.5" phone, then everyone who got used to a 5.5" phone is stuck with a smaller phone that will feel tiny.

I hope they keep the Note line at 5.5". The Note feels good in my hands, but can be a tight fit for some pockets. If I wanted a 7" device, I'd get a Nexus 7.

Can you be a bit more specific? What 'features' exactly are you referring to?

Other than the quad-core processor and bigger screen, (and later version of android which of course any deviced can be updated to) the note 2 is basically an S3 as far as I'm aware. Perhaps the next 'S' series will also features a quad core, so that the note series will basically be just bigger screens, and perhaps a battery with more mah to accommodate the bigger screen.

The Nexus 7 is not a phone. The idea is not to have to carry several devices around with you. One device an be your eREader, mp3 player, calendar/journal, digital voice recorder, mobile internet browser, digital camera, and phone. There are obvious advantages to this.

I do kinda agree with what one one reviewer said about the Note 2. It's just a bit too small to be a tablet and a bit too big to be a phone. The idea of a 6.3" screen sounds about perfect to me. Maybe even as much as 6.8. I'll still be able to fit it into my 3/4 length leather coat at that latter size and now reading pdf's would be a little nicer and same for videos/mobile TV. Anyway, having said that, I still think the Note 2 is the best phone on the market. I always use bluetooth when on the phone, which I think is a no-brainer for a phone like this. Just leave it in your pocket or on a coffee table until you need it for mobile browsing/videos/etc, and talk via bluetooth.

I agree.
One thing they will have to keep is the 16:9 ratio to view movies and HD content. The screen on the N2 is very close to being edge to edge so there isn't a whole lot of room to grow without making it wider.

Once that happens then you loose the ability to pocket the device and it becomes too big for a belt holster too. At that point it makes much more sense to just get a full sized tablet as you will end up carrying it in a backpack.

If you want to see a really poorly designed device then look at the LG Intuition. It's big, but with the 4:3 display and the width, it's just not a practical device and has had dismal sales. I would hate to see the note go that route.

In a business perspective, Samsung should take care not to rob the sales of there 7" tablets. It's more lucrative for them if you buy 2 devices from them than just 1. In my case, I bought both note 2 and 10.1. Had I realized I'll be using my note 2 a lot more browsing the web and forums, Facebook etc. I wouldn't have bought the tablet.

I have a hard time Samsung would 1. do 4:3 and 2. be that poor of a product.

When I was at Verizon with my dad (he was getting a Note 2) I was playing around with LG. (well... trying anyway) It crashed 3 times on me and I wasn't playing with it for that long. That's pretty bad and I'm not surprised it's doing poor. I didn't think holding it was that bad. I was laughing at how it made my Note 1 look more smallish.

Sadly, I'm Tom Cruise sized (5'7) but my excuse is being asian...

I'm Tom Cruise sized too...my excuse is that I'm short

Myself, I never even got to the point of playing with the LG..it just looked so ridiculous and felt so strange in my hand that I put it down before considering it any further.

My issue with a MUCH larger Note (as proposed in this thread) is not so much how it feels in the hand, but is how I'm going to carry such a large device around. As it stands the current N2 is too large for me to comfortably stick in my pants pocket (it fits, but is really bulky), but it fits nicely on my belt with the Seidio holster. So it's a device that I can carry around without any problem. Bigger and wider though (it would have to be to approach 6.5”) and then it becomes a device that I need to put in a back pack or briefcase. At that point I lose interest.

Yes, some will still buy it, but it wouldn’t make much business sense as it will make the product attractive to fewer people.

I'll admit in certain situations it's hard to put in or pull out of my pocket (twss) and it would be harder for me with a note 3, but it still wouldn't deter me from getting one. I bet the price would more than the phone since I'm on straight talk...

Also, didn't notice the pic earlier. Funny stuff.

I bet everything except the S-pen will be on the S4. The big question is: What will the screen size of the S4 be?

I would hate to give up the S-pen, at this point I don't think I could. But I could not carry anything bigger than the N2.

Either way, I don't have to worry about if for 2 years.

Samsung LOVES making 900 sizes of the same product but this time I think if they're going to "bridge the gap" they're going to come out with a 7" note tablet. That bridges the gap between the 5.5" phone and 10" tablet.

AND I didn't see it mentioned here that Samsung already has 7" tablets people use to make calls on so a 6.3" phone really wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for Samsung.

I don't see a phone that will bridge that gap (5.5 and 7). I just think that's too small a gap to even consider making. You'll just be competing with your own products as well as other manufacturers.

If we are talking about 1 hand, I can barely use the phone with one hand if my other hand is occupied. Yes, I can pull it out of my pocket and check email, but it's a stretch. I mean this is the limit. I didn't have any such problem with my Gnex. Although we can always be tempted to go larger in 6 months, I have to concur with most of the posts above that anything larger than this would be too over the top for every day phone/text/email usage on the run.

I highly doubt its going to be this big. I believe the first rumors of a 5.8 in screen a little more.

Contrary to everybody's belief that they'll bump up the size, I think they'll put in a flexible screen before increasing the size:

Samsung said to be bringing flexible 5.5 inch display to CES

5.5 Flexible screen sounds like the best option, considering there have already been horror stories of some people cracking their screens (and some of the drop tests showed cracking right away).

I wouldn't mind if they went that route first, and then figured out how to turn the flexible screen into a bigger screen, while using that flexibility to keep the form factor where it currently is.

sounds great but i can't see it being implemented for Note 3 unless they've done lots of work on it already. i just can't imagine something debuting at CES being ready for mass market at an affordable price within a year....though i could be and probably am wrong as i have nothing to back that up.

Before the Note 2 was officially announced, there were rumors that it was being implemented on it (but obviously, that didn't happen). So, realistically, there's nothing that I could say would hold them back from doing it, unless they don't feel the technology is up to their standards yet.

I don't want or need a Nexus 7. I already have a 10" tablet and like having a 5.5" inch phone. The 7" form factor does nothing for me. Too big for a phone, too small for a tablet. This is why I don't want to see the Note 2 get much bigger.

I wouldn't mind if they went that route first, and then figured out how to turn the flexible screen into a bigger screen, while using that flexibility to keep the form factor where it currently is.
I'm thinking this doesn't really solve the screen cracking, but more on design. I can imagine future phones will be curved. They still need to put something hard (usually brittle) to prevent the screen from being scratched so easily. Either that or some sort of protector.

What do you mean? are you referring to the Note series? I have all three (actually had to be more precise).

Note one with its 2100 Mhz battery was at the time awesome, It lasted far longer than the EVO 4G, and Photon 4G I had.

Note 10.1 even though its a tablet is fine with battery life and lasts for qwite a long time (at least for my needs).

The Note 2, is a beast with its battery life, far outlasts anything I've had my hands on.

Now if you are referring to previous Samsung phones, then I can't comment.

I mean in general. That's how they made it sound. Also, expectations of "better" to me is lasting longer than just all day (with any kind of use). I'm talking like 2 to 3 days on moderate to heavy use. I dunno how unrealistic that is, but that's my idea of a SIGNIFICANT improvement. With that said i dunno the note 2s batt life but i figure it's better that mine.

I'm very happy with the N2's battery.
With extensive use I've never drained it in a day so far. I spend a couple of hours each day using it as an e-reader with brightness turned up high, and browse the internet often during the day.

I've been thinking of using my 50% off coupon on the spare battery / charger combo, but with the long life of the battery, I'm not sure if I'd ever use the 2nd battery.

If it gets me though a day of such use, I'm happy. I have no problem recharging at night.

What smartphone actually has the capability of lasting 2-3 days with "heavy" use? Blackberry is the only device that I've seen where people have managed to go 2-3 days with heavy use, but of course, use on a Blackberry's eco-system is much more limited than Android, iOS or Windows phone.

That's why I said SIGNIFICANT improvement. Either way... that's what they should be focusing on... not this bendable screen crap.

Not the BB's that I owned!! they never could manage a full day, let alone 2-3 days. I had numerous storms and storm 2's.

Oh, yeah, I heard stories about the Storm, since they were touchscreen. I'm talking about the standard blackberry's, just because of the way that RIM's messaging delivery was configured.

:shudder: Storm... ugh... Never mention that again. My friend had it. The one time I used it I would've gladly thrown it on the ground as hard as I could for him.

I remembered using my Palm treo 650 for more than 3 days without charging. But then again, I wasn't connected on the net, and I don't have access to any information that I have in today's devices.

My T|650 never lasted a whole day. Like the Note 2, it was glued to my hand. Fortunately there were plenty of chargers cause during that time everybody was feeling the Treo.
