    I've been reading a lot of rumors and I've been really interested in the Note 3 however I told myself I would hold out at least till the Note 4 came out . As the note 2 is still an awesome phone and fulfils my needs. Anyway was just curious to see who's upgrading or are you guys perfectly content with the note 2.:)

    I would think the Note 3 screen would be larger still and that alone swayed me into my new Note 2 contract a few weeks ago, anything bigger than this is just not going to work with me but the Note 2 is still a great phone no matter what the next installment comes with. Updates should be coming for a while yet, just look at the S2 recently on the same software as us Note 2 users :)

    It has to have more than a larger screen in order for me to spend another $700 when my Note 2 is still serving me so well.

    I think the screen will be larger (less bezel surrounding the face), but the overall phone will be smaller

    I'll probably hold on to my N2 until my contract expires. Unless something radical comes along.

    I will likely go to the new Note 3 (or LG) if the screen is bigger and the full size is NOT much bigger AND it has 32gb internal (or 64). Plus LTE.
    With all the blot ware that is coming with Samsung phones you need 32GB........
    But, as been said: I can wait. The N2 is a great computer, I mean phone.... :D

    Lateck,

    I want one! 6" won't be a problem for me. My contract with T -mobile UK runs out in May 2014 but I will buy myself out of it and get a Note for Christmas

    Note 2 will still suit my needs. Wonder if they can really keep the price down with the full HD screen with S Pen (Wacom licensing). Probably still use the same S Pen at 1024 levels of pressure.

    If anything, I just hope they at least give users pen calibration software and not this auto-calibration nonsense.

    Interesting to say the least, but probably still stay with my Note 2 until my contract is up (which is a long while).

    Do you think the battery life would not be affected when they introduce a faster cpu and 1080 screen?

    Yes If they want to maintain great battery life they will need a bigger battery

    That depends. If the faster CPU is also an efficient CPU, then battery drain shouldn't be as bad. What good is a fast CPU if it's just wheels spinning in the mud? I would much prefer an efficient CPU over a fast one any day. Look at Intel's chips which has better efficiency over each generation. The newer chips can be clocked lower, use less power and still produce the same results as a higher clocked previous generation chip. Speed is not the factor, efficiency is. The more efficient the chip and architecture is the less power it should consume theoretically.

    Of course, everything to deal with battery will be pure speculation at this point. Since Samsung will most likely continue using OLED screens, battery drain should be at a minimal compared to traditional LCD screens. I think RAM does need to be boosted out of necessity as well as the GPU VRAM. Especially if considering S Pen. Heat would be another issue too, right?

    I'm pretty sure I'm getting one! I'm still loving my note 2 after almost a year but I will still upgrade if the note 3 has the specs they are expecting.

    Being a phone junky, I know I'll end up with one. I can tell you that I'll wait until my contract is up, but I haven't done that in years. Just like asking me will I get the Xbox One or PS4? At the moment, I've the the Xbox One fully paid for, but just like last generation, I'll end up with both because I have no will power, I'll cave. Thank god the wife doesn't mind my issues, haha.

    I hope all the future notes will continue to have a fantastic battery life. I'm not really concerned about speed right now, the phone is more than capable of doing anything I want it to do. Maybe an even better camera sensor would be a welcome feature for future phones in the Note series.

    Strange article because only a portion of the stats were supposedly "confirmed" by Samsung mobile, but I don't see a link to the source, just arbitrarily mentioning that Samsung mobile confirmed the few stats that they did. It goes on to mix in "rumors" that have been talked about, so if not read carefully, some people may think that all of the mentioned are confirmed.

    I'm on the fence until more "true to life" leaks come out and more definitive specs. I'm completely happy with my Note 2 and would last another year, no problem. There are certain things that would make me lean towards doing another upgrade on the Note 3, but only if at least one of these factors actually end up coming true:

    1) Smaller physical form factor than Note 2, but with bigger screen (just like they did with the S4)
    2) Flexible screen that converts phone to tablet screen size (not likely, but would definitely make me buy full price, just to upgrade)
    3) Tri-band radios for Sprint

    I'm tempted by the Sony Xperia Z Ultra personally, but it all depends on what nifty things Samsung shows us in the Note 3 really. I'd really like to have the water/dust proof Xperia though, just for the ef of it. Something different.

    Love Z ultra shape, that shape is amazing.... but 3000 mah battery & no Camera flash / flashlight killed it for me... Then the Honami i1's got the design & flash right, however it's just not big enough at 5in... plus I made a promise to myself steer note 2 (3100mah) or better.... Note 3 FTW!

    I still really love Sony's designs. I think the only thing that's been hindering their sales is not making phones for non-AT&T providers (or providing the Xperia line on Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile). I think Sony could be in more of the conversations, if they expanded. Just not sure the costs are worth it to Sony.

    This only applies to the US, but it's similar to how I felt about Motorola before, where they were practically in bed with Verizon (as far as offering their top of the line android phones). Prior to the Atrix, all of Motorola's top android phones were only offered through Verizon. Once the Atrix (ATT) was released, then the original Photon (Sprint), that's when Motorola started offering some semblance of top tier phones through other providers, but Verizon was still getting the cream of the crop (and still is).
