    It's that time again...looks as if I will have the opportunity to see the device in person sometime next week. As I have done previously I thought I would open it up for questions concerns etc. that I can explore in detail while the device is in hand.

    It exists..."Sammy" has seen it ...and quote "it's awesome"

    so whatcha got?

    Is the screen bigger than 5.7 in and is it going to be a larger version of the S4? Are the rumors true about a premium build version?

    Hey thanks Mr. Ed! :wavey: Good to see you again.

    What size screen? Different screen size for different carriers?

    Flexible screen or no?

    Ram? CPU?

    Plastic body? Metal body?

    Will they have different high end and low end models?

    Can I have one for free since I own 4 different Samsung devices?

    Are they going to have an "active" version that's waterproof like the S4?

    I'm interested in the dimensions (mm please), so that it can be compared to the current Note 2 and other devices. A measurement of the screen dimensions and how much gap between the edges of the picture and outer bezel are helpful too. It might help us size up the whole package?

    I'm not a big fan of TouchWiz - especially more than ever with what I consider to be borderline invasive features (SmartStay, S-Voice, etc.) --but it would be interesting to see if it is running anything new or different software wise, any new features, etc?

    The rumor of a camera button interested me. If it has one, how does it feel, how well does it work, is it 2-stage, etc? (though I just had a fun idea, how about the S-Pen button act like a remote for the camera and can control the shutter action, letting you wirelessly click your photos)

    Something to float by the Samsung rep. Will there be subsequent offerings of the Note 3 with other options or carrier differences that should be available to all? (thinking like the stupid new ATT Galaxy S4 "Active", The "Zoom" variant, or different colors) --durn beat by ovrrdrive! ;)

    How soon after it is out will we be able to root it?

    Is reception the same as a S4 or better?

    Will Samsung finally offer wrapped text?

    Will carriers offer different versions at first release?
    Needing one with gorrilla glass if available.

    Wrapped text might not be be right name, but what I'm talking about is on my old LG Optimus. When a sentence was to long for the screen like say a forum. My phone would break the sentence down to make it all fit on the screen so I woudn't have to scroll over to the right. I know this is a big phone but some sports forums just don't know when to stop! Hope this makes sense.

    To the best of my knowledge all Samsung phones do have this, it just works differently...for instance the s3 once you zoomed in you had to double tap...the s4 I have to pinch zoom, the Note 2 double tap etc etc where on other phones you just zoom in and it is "wrapped"

    I believe the proper term is "reflow"

    There were rumors that Apply had a patent on reflow, that it was part of the suit filed against Samsung, and that is why Samsung was forced to make it less user friendly/different. I never confirmed this though.

    Pocketability is my main concern. Will it fit in the front pocket of a pair of slacks like Dockers?

    First, thanks Ed. How 'bout checking the chip, Octa or Dragon? Also, what's your overall opinion of the feel in your hand, did they round the corners...i.e S4? Lastly, a photo would be great if possible!!!

    Thanks Ed, I would like to know a few things please;

    - Snapdragon 800 ?
    - Battery size ? 4,000mAh ?
    - Overall size of the new phone, same footprint no bigger than the N2, but larger screen by .02" ?
    - Design matching that of the S4 ? Or a radically whole new style ?
    - Is the Note 3 thinner and lighter than the Note2 ?

    And whats with the rumors of different sized Note 3's ? Will the main U.S. version be 5.7" screen ? But new rumors suggest each carrier will get their own different size, one carrier 6", one a 5.7", one a 5.5". Sort of like back when the U.S. carriers got the Galaxy S2, they each got different sized and shaped phones, I hope that's not the case.

    I carry my GTab7.7 in the front pocket of my dockers almost daily, I don't see a 5.7 phone being an issue, so long as your dockers are not dancing-pants tight.

    to Ed-

    My "wonders"-

    Battery size and life, is it removable/upgradeable?

    Is the screen to big to do things one-handed? (This was almost an issue with my GNex)

    Will it work with a docking station?

    I guess my question didn't get translated to this thread, but my main question:

    Size comparison to Note 2 (and overall physical dimension measurements, if possible)

    Screen size confirmation

    All I want is the rumored 5.99" display. I will be thrilled if it does. Everything else will be icing on the cake.

    Now that I have the ever so wonderful Galaxy S4... I must confess that it only makes me want a larger display even more :D

    @DrEx If at all possible can you consolidate all the questions into one post for Mr. Ed like we usually do please.

    It was my plan to do it but I'm covered in splittered wood (stripping old paneling off the walls).

    My thanks in advance if you can do it.

    No more power to do that, otherwise I would. Part of the reason I relinquished the duties. Just didn't have time to devote for lots of organization. :D
