    Agreed.

    Same body size, 1/4" top bezel for speaker/camera, no side or bottom bezel, no buttons.... that gets you around ... 1/2" more wide and 1 1/2" long. That gives you about 1.54 to 1.55 more inches extra screen, measured diagonally. Too big. If the 6.3 rumors are true, that means we're seeing a 1/4" increase in width and 1/2" increase in length, or something similar to this. That's about a .79 or .80 inch extension, taking us from 5.5" to 6.3".

    Getting rid of the S-Pen would be a mistake in my opinion.

    They're not getting rid of the S-Pen for the Note 3. The source of confusion here is that rumours of the Mega came out the same time everyone was looking for rumors on the Note 3. The Mega will be in a 5.8 and 6.3 size and not feature the S-Pen. The Note 3 should be in the 5.9 range have an S-Pen and generally be more high-end than the Mega series.

    I hope the phone keeps the same physical size as the GN2 and increases the screen and limits the bezel much like they did with the S3 to S4 design. I have the OG Pro right now since the GN2 with limited storage and lower res display. So far its a really great device and solid performer.

    My concerns with the Octo processor is developer support and Samsungs unwillingness to release code for it. This could make rooting and bootloader work a lot harder, though I have confidence in the developer community that's for sure. Still if it doesn't come with 32GB minimum and 23-25GB of that as usable storage then I likely will just pass on it. I am not going to live with under performing storage on phones again.

    It is a big screen, but I guess it's not for everyone, different people like different sizes.

    Part of what makes the Note a Note is the S-Pen. It would be cool if the Note 3 came early like the S4 did. However, I wouldn't expect this device any earlier than IFA in Berlin in August.

    There are rumors now of more S4 variants including an S4 Mega. To me that would a test run of the design platform but only bumping it to a GN2 5.5" size leaving the GN3 5.99" for the fall with the pen. Given people who want the bigger screen the GN2 gave but no S-Pen and the BIGGER 5.99" GN3 with S-Pen.

    The Note 3 apparently showed up in a benchmark this week running JB 4.3 on the octocore.



    Various rumors I've read say it will have a 6 inch edge to edge (flexible but not bendable) screen but could be same overall size as Note 2, also could be 720p, could be 1080. June or September. Not at IFA because Samsung has grown too big for that now.

    The question of course remains, were those benchmarks fake or real? That is the question and if they are real then with more optimization it should really be a sweet device.

    Why on earth would it be running 4.3? A completely unannounced and unknown os being created by a different company with nothing to warrant Samsung having it?

    Rumor mill says we're a little over 2 weeks away from 4.3, but, aside from Nexus devices, it is weird to hear about any OEM having access to a new build before everyone else. There have been many rumors from Dev's about new app standards as well, etc. so maybe there is something floating out there.

    Because Samsung was the first to roll out a new phone with 4.2.2 (outside of the Nexus) and why wouldn't they roll out the first 4.3 (outside of Nexus) phone as well. The GS4 has great potential, but the GN3 IF built right could be even hotter.

    ZTE rolled out 4.2.2 first I think. Then Asus. Samsung is still relatively good though.

    I don't follow ZTE, but Asus is all over those updates.

    That would imply that Google is giving them the software before releasing it or even announcing it. All those phones seem to have taken it after release and then made their software off of it. From the reviews, the gs4 software seems rushed with the random ui lags and such.
    Once again we can't know, but...
