What would this place be if we didn't keep each other informed and up to date on what's coming down the line 6 months from now...LOL...I also didn't think that I'd be looking at all Samsung devices within 2 years from my jumping on the Android bandwagon.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 coming in black
It's cool, but not dark blue, so I'm perfectly happy with the Titanium Grey. Now, if that other Cobalt Blue color comes out (like was rumored) and it looks sick, then I might be a little annoyed...LOL.

I can say the same 'bout you being the sister I never knew ScandaLeX...LOL. Although, there are many peeps that were former PPC owners, that had moved over from the i500, but are also members on here. Maybe not quite as active, but they're around for sure.

Isn't that going to cut right into the Note series as far as sales go? This may mean that the rumors of the Note 3 being 6-6.3 in may come to fruition. I guess Samsung wants more choices. All in all I can't wait to see how this goes.

Yeah I don't know about this S pen rumor for the S4. I think that's one of the selling points of the Note line, besides the larger size of course.

Personally I think the S4 will probably be just a jump up in specs (faster processer, better screen, more bells and whistles, more memory). Maybe a new design even?

But since nobody knows anything about the S4, the rumor mill will be working overtime the closer we get to the launch. Although it's fun to speculate on these things

Methinks that the new S4 will have either the Exynos 5250 (dual-core) or their new Exynos QC chipset (based on A15 arch). Display will likely go up in size slightly and have that flexible display. As for the rest, I have no idea. I wouldn't be too happy if they did decide to include S Pen, since that means the price will likely drive up a bit.

Samsung could incorporate the technology into the phone so it could be "S-Pen capable" which means Samsung could sell it as an accessory.

My Mom has the HTC Flyer tablet that came out a couple years back. HTC sold an optional stylus that enabled you to jot notes, highlight text, draw and some other things. But HTC priced the stylus at $75.00 which of course was a complete ripoff.

My Lenovo Thinkpad tablet came with a stylus that actually works very well, especially for jotting notes. Although I don't really use that often.

Rumors peg it with the 5450, which is the quad core A15. Rumors also suggest that Samsung will utilize a BIG.little architecture with their chips.

I like the idea of the S4 coming with the S pen. I think it would be great.

I agree, it will be S-pen capable but not be part of the package or insertable.

The Lenovo Thinkpad (Android version) was one tablet I liked, the keyboard accessory was awesome. But with their locked down policy and then turning their backs on upgrading that Thinkpad and instead making it a Windows tablet, totally pissed me off. If they make a universal Keyboard like the Thinkpad had, I would get that. I still think its a also accessory.

I also wish Samsung would have made a keyboard add on that makes the Note 10.1 into laptop like the transformer.

Considering what they did with the Windows 8 Ativ series, I wouldn't be surprised if they do that with the Note 10.1 series this coming year.

Yeah the Thinkpad is a nice device. It has boatload of features, but it's a bit on the chunky side and heavy, but it's built like a tank. Plus like you said Lenovo pretty much bailed on Android and decided to go with Windows 8 instead which means zero updates and support for the Android version. Hoping that Lenovo will eventually enable users unlock the bootloader so I can root the thing.

Funny thing is that my employer bought a bunch of them for the people in the field to use. They actually used mine as a guinae pig to see if it would work with certain programs.

I ended up giving it to the GF to use since I have a Nexus 7 and the Ipad 2.

I think you mean truckload of salt. How or why sites published this is beyond me. Why not send the actual photo instead taking the photo of a computer screen? Most likely because the Photoshop was poorly executed and they wanted to hide their mistakes.

This reminds me of the story that every blog picked about the Jelly Bean features from their "reliable sources" that ended up being a hoax.

Hahaha exactly. Most of these "leaks" are fake, photoshopped, or just prototypes. These sites should learn their lesson from last year. We are not going to know until closer to the unveiling.

I know just rumors still but
Strange, I wonder what this simple and clean version of Sense is...?
Isn't Sense already pretty simple, or am I just too accustomed to it?
Sense is great in my opinion, why does it need to be dumbed down?
Why do we need this new volume slider that will probably "feature" some notification that will annoyingly be permanently placed in the notification bar/drop down shade (like power saver, keyboard input selector, background data, etc.).

If they want to be simple, why don't they just give us straight Vanilla Android? Alot of people would actually prefer that.
Though I wish they would do the opposite and take a page out of the root world and custom ROM land by making Sense more feature rich and option filled - and if the issue is appealing to new/basic users, then they should make an expanded optional development mode/advanced user mode.

The only thing I can think they could reasonably simplify or clean up is that they could make Sense less resource intensive.

I'm glad the HTC rumors so far are more than just fake rendered blurry cam photos. I'd much rather have a thoughtful conversation about stuff like this ^ rather than the veracity of a screen capture.

I think Sprint will definitely get this phone. The question is, will it be an EVO variant or will HTC have the same phone for all carriers?

Samsung has been doing this a lot longer and have the ba@#$ to call out apple. HTC needs to establish that one phone for all carriers that everyone can know,they release the same phone on carriers with different design so imo they lose that identity factor. Everyone or most know of the S3,Note and iphone. No other OEM has that. To me HTC need to establish that one bad a$$ phone yearly like Samsung, Apple and Google.

They tried that with the One X. Fortunately we got the LTEvo.

And no matter how great their next phone is, the press will whine about Sense again.

What's new this year is the same thing from last year, "Sense is lighter now."

Hard to play against a stacked deck.

If more sites let go of the "me first" mentality we'd have less fake leaks. They're in such a hurry to post "exclusives" yet don't take the time to fact check.

They don't, but they should. I think that would be a brilliant idea, actually. However, the issue lies in their poor marketing.

htc and everyone.. knew that sense was very heavy and used a lot of memory.
they should have had 2gb of RAM before Sammy. the evo og was one of the first to have 1gb of RAM.

Stylus... htc tried it with the flyer to bring it back. it was a step in the right direction. to bad htc could not think farther outside the box, and change the stylus more. Sammy again saw the potential first.

Having used the Evo, the 3D and LTEvo, I can tell you that extrapolating from what the Evo was like to what they did in 2011 isn't a safe bet.

The OG Evo 4G did not have 1 GB of RAM. It had 512 MB, and 1 GB total storage.

Compare .5/1 to 1/4 or 1/16, and the og S1 processor to the later dual cores and that adds up to a huge difference in what Sense has been for a year and a half vs what's believed.

And it's that innocent but universal mistake that has everyone claiming how heavy weight Sense is.

And it's going to whack the new HTC phones again.

And make no mistake. The more they cater to the "make Sense light" meme, the more they break things.

OK.. i thought the EVO OG had 1gb of RAM..

dont want Sense to be smaller... never said that.

I want htc to add more mem to the device to handle Sense and more apps at the same time.

that is why EVO LTE fell off my list of possibilities...
stuck on 1 phone for 2 yrs or more... 2GB of RAM would be better in the long run.

Well, let's round out the wish for much larger stock batteries at the same time.

I've yet to see an SGS3 report with a stock battery matching what I get as a matter of course running the same processor.

I attribute that to the 2 GB trade off.

Also one of the reasons I have such high respect for the Note 2.

So, can plz haz fewer trade-offs this year??!

And if you do get a visit from him/her, info on the Samsung 7.7 Note tablet would be greatly appreciated, as far as expected release. I don't even really care about specs that much, since I'm assuming they'll at least match the Note 2, which is more than sufficient for what I'd need the tablet for.

I'm a bit curious to see the next EVO. HTC will always have a place in my heart even if I'm currently loving my SGS3.

Still have the original EVO, I've been holding out for a new phone because I was hoping for a Nexus device from HTC. This might not happen now so the M7 might be my next phone.

Wow, looking at the Huawei Ascend Mate next to the Galaxy Note 2...I really hope Samsung doesn't follow suit and make the Note 3 a 6.3 inch phone. The Ascend Mate is a 6.1 inch screen, but it absolutely dwarfs the Galaxy Note 2!



Hands on: Huawei

Funny thing is, when I was watching the Phandroid video, I kept wondering why they haven't done a size comparison with the Note 2, so I googled to find that pic (since I knew there had to be somebody that took size comparison pics).

The Note 2 was already on the borderline for me, but if they go up to 6.3 inch for the Note 3...I'll likely have to pass on it, if it gets close to the Huawei.

A bit off topic from most of the phone discussions going on here now but, I hope that our next Flagship devices on Sprint support all 3 of Sprint's LTE bands (Sprint's 800 & 1900mhz, and Clear's 25/2600mhz). If one phone does and one phone does not, that will be a huge differentiating factor in my next purchase. Sprint says (in the article below) that they will be releasing tri-band LTE phones in 2013. Lets hope both the next EVO and Galaxy S support this!

This sounds good to me since I can't upgrade my S3 until 2014. Sprint does seem to be moving in the right direction. I just wish they would get LTE in my area soon.

I could go as large as the gs3 but note and note 2 screen size would probably be just a bit too big for me.

I thought that the Note 2 would be too big for me, but after having it for almost 2 months, it's right at the borderline of the biggest phone I'd feel comfortable owning. Any bigger and I'd have to explore another option. And it's only comfortable because I refuse to use a case on it (or any of my phones for that matter).

Wow that Huawei phone is huge! If the Note 3 will be bigger than that, I don't know anymore. lol But who knows, I might still get it. The GS4 is another option as well.

Oh please drex, you and I know that when the samsung Galaxy Note 3 with 6.9 inch display comes out, you won't have to worry about putting a case on it or not, Just wrap it in a blanket and carry it around like a baby. I for one will do that and place the pacifier in my own mouth lol

All joking aside, that device is huge. But we won't know how it actually feels until it in the hands, much like the Note 2.

LOL...I already know, TS. That thing is way too big. Heck, I thought the Note 1 was big and would never have gotten the Note 2, had it been the same physical dimensions as the Note 1.

Only way I get a Note 3 w/ a bigger screen than the Note 2 is if they squeeze it into the current form factor, which just doesn't seem realistic.

1st .. i agree...

but it is funny...
how each time the phone pushes a little bigger.. that is accompanied by a feature that makes use of it.. our general comfort is moved to fit it.

iphone OG... that is all we need
EVO OG... damn that is biggest i would ever go!!!!
Note1... nope.. that is too big.. cant do it.
SG3... ok, pushing my pocket size!!!
Note2... this i can do.. i want it! but that is the biggest i will ever do on a phablet.

hhhmmm.....
