    The question is, Do you need to keep it in charger because of that screen resolution and specs or can it be unplugged for 2 minutes?

  3. I don't get way so fast releases. People buy a new very expensive phone every year?, I'm very happy with my S1 running cyanogenmod.

    They are just trying to compete with Apple.

    Apple has released 2 phones a year since the Iphone 3. Samsung is just attempting to keep their market share versus what Apple releases. The GS3 has been a MONSTER for Samsung. Im sure Apple didnt see this phone being as big of a hit. Add on to that the Galaxy Note 1&2, and Samsung has effectivly pinched Apples market. Now comes all the fun questions. Is Samsung going to be able to keep this level of innovation up against companies like Apple. Companies that by the way, are looking at Samsung with a very sharp eye. They want to know why everyone who isnt getting a iphone is getting the GS3.

    I sure hope the S4 is a big enough upgrade from the S2.

    I feel like Samsung phones are a bit too large though. They need to stop increasing the screen size in my opinion
     
  8. Agreed on the size thing. I have the s3 after having the s1. After a few weeks I still think the size is a bit much.
     
  9. Even though this is a higher number then the S3 I think this is just aimed at a person who would need little more than an S3 so basically I don't think this is a altogether phone with drastic improvements like we saw from S2 to S3 just an upgrade of the same thing
     
  10. I have the 5.5 inch Galaxy Note 2 and after a few months I want a bigger screen. I hope the Galaxy Note 3 has a 6 inch screen while maintaining the same phone dimensions as the current size is very comfortable. Small bezel and a bigger screen, the 3100mah batter is already great but I upgraded to a 4500mah which keeps the original back plate. I get 20 hours screen time.

    2 phones a year? Really? Which two phones have been released in the same year?

    I was thinking the exact same thing, I'm 100% confident Apple only releases 1 phone a year, think this guy is an Apple hater and therefore making up numbers is natural xD

    Apple releases the original handsets, I.E. Iphone 4 then roughly 5-6 months later they release a updated version of the originally released handset and put a S behind it. Once again I point to Iphone 3 then 3S Iphone 4 then 4S Iphone 5 next will be 5S. I do hate Apple and I own a Iphone 4.

    iPhone - June 29, 2007
    iPhone 3G - July 11, 2008

    iPhone 4 - 24 June, 2010

    How could you possibly think they released a new phone every 6 months?! only a quick Google brought all these dates up!

  15. Agree entirely , I love the note 2 and a 6" screen would be great as long as the overall dimensions stayed the same.
