I know it's early, but anyone see a 6" Note 3 as a real possibility? I would buy one, would you?
Hmm, I don't think I would want it any bigger than it is now.
But then I don't even have my Note 2 yet (coming tomorrow), so maybe someday I'll agree. Having handled one in the T-Mobile store, the Note 2 already seemed pretty huge and made me think twice for a bit about fitting it in my pockets etc.
I'll definitely buy one. I still think the note 2 is a bit small.
I think something that's often overlooked is that there are two distinct groups of phone users, or in this case Note II users. Those who generally use phones with one hand and those who use them with two hands. I've always handled most tasks (at least 90% not including phone calls) with both hands and this was even true with my previous phones (Evo 4G & E4GT). For people like myself, moving to the Note II was very easy and the potential of the stylus only helped to make it easier.
Anyway, I think I could go bigger and while 6" may be viable in terms of usability, I'm honestly not sure if I'd want a display quite that big. That being said, I can't see anyone who uses the Note II predominantly with one hand wanting anything bigger.
If they would just use the existing bezel space for it sure, but it would mess with the 16:9 aspect ratio at this point because there is barely any bezel on the sides. If they went back to 16:10 I'd be pleasantly surprised.
Me too. An extra half an inch wouldn't be bad IMO. I like the Note 2 as is but if it could be a smidge bigger, I'd be stoked.
No. Having owned the GN1 and now the GN2, the 2 is the perfect form factor. No need for physically bigger. Higher resolution? Possibly, but not bigger.
Yes, I prefer a 6.3 inch screen please
no. I have big hands and the note series are a stretch on occassion. 6" is tablet territory ie Nexus 7 and that won't fit in your pocket lol.
Id prefer to stay at current phone size. If they were able to expand screen to fit current phone dimensions, sure.
If I could tuck my iPad into my pocket, I would carry it with me... but I can't.
The same goes for the Note. If it doesn't fit in my pocket, I'm not going to carry it.
As I was sitting in the deer stand the other day and took my iPhone out, I realized that no longer will I be able to use my chest pockets as I do now since the phone is too large.
There comes a point where the screen gets too large and can no longer be functional as a mobile device.
Having said all of that, it may be a 6" screen if it is edge to edge on the top, bottom, and sides.
I wish they made a 10.1" note....that would be awesome...
This thread is ridiculous. This thing hasn't even been completely released yet, and we're talking about the next gen already.
Or they could expand the Note family and add the 7" Note in the line-up. I think 6" is pushing it in terms of pant pockets.
Possibility? Sure. Practical and realistic? No.
6" is too close to 7" which is a tablet and too big to be carrying around in your pocket. If you really need 6", then you might as well carry around a 7" tablet.
There needs to be some noticeable difference between a 5" device and a 7" device. Just like you can't buy a 43" flat screen TV above a 42". There needs to be noticeable differences in sizes.
I most definitely wouldn't buy a phone with a 6" screen. 5.5" is plenty big.
To me the GN2 is perfect right now. I would not go bigger.
I have a tablet for that!
I think this is the perfect size. Any bigger than I might just opt for upcoming nexus 7 with phone function. ***wink***
I've used the phone one handed most of the time, including using the note 2 with posting on this thread. Thank God for big hands and Swype beta. =)
exactly. i'm not too keen on having two gadgets at once, especially in this city, lol.
I would grab a7" tablet phone without hesitation.
How about this... a 6" Galaxy Note 3 with the same physical size as the Note 2... I want my next phone to be all screen with minimal bezel. Or a flex amoled screen to wear on my wrist.
note 2 is a perfect size... nothing bigger
If were going to keep going bigger, Samsung should just make the 7" note with phone capabilities.
