    Default Would you get it?

    According to the article here on AC the Samsung Galaxy Round is set to release in Korea today with no information on whether or not it's going to be released to different regions. If it were to release in your area, would you get it?

    I could see myself getting into this device if it came over to the US and hit AT&T. The thing that catches my eye is the tilt-based interface. I think it would be cool to be able to check your phone for messages just by tilting it towards you while it rests on a table. It also seems like the curved form factor would feel better in your hand. I currently have the Note 2 and sometimes think it would be easier to maneuver with one hand if it was a little bit curved.

    So what does everyone else think about the Samsung Galaxy Round?

    No. Spend less money and get the Note 3.

    I would have to agree here. The cost of this device is ridiculous when the Note 3 is a great device.

    Valid points but I don't think any carrier would price it in the $1,015 range because it would never sell.

    Specs aren't all that bad....but the price is a definite downside.

    Most likely not but if they did we wouldn't see a lot sold. Specs are decent too. I was surprised to see the large screen size.

    I think for right now, it might be hard for US carriers to subsidize.

    Decent? They're the same as the Note 3's but with a slightly smaller battery

    And no S-Pen, which is the reason to want a Note 3.

    I know, but I was replying to his comment that it had decent specs not what the phone has.

    I have the note 3 since day one and I won't give it up for this phone no way! The note is a beast and ran everything and anything I tried on it with no lag whatsoever

    Can't say yet that I would get it but I definitely want to check it out in person so I can make that decision. Plus I want to see how it fits in my pocket and if it will actually curve to my thigh.

    Call Apple nonnovative. Call Samsung downright foolish. Curved display? Really? Christ.

    What's wrong with it? They're not marketing it as the best phone ever or telling everyone to go buy it. It's just another option you have. Believe it or not, there has to be SOMEONE out there who would love a phone like this.

    I'm thinking that person would be me

    I like the design because it's definitely something different. I'm all for trying this phone out.

    Just imagine if the curved display is the first step in making a phone more flexible. Samsung already has highly flexible screens. No more people accidentally sitting on their phones and crushing them.

    Right now they have the flexible screen on top and the components in a small box at the bottom. Looks kind of weird
