Straight From The Island of Misfit Toys.

Samsung cut out way too much to meet the $149.99 w/ contract price.

Their target market, as it's been said "consumers who want a phablet without the $299.99 price of admission." This market does not exist!

The Note II is more powerful, better resolution, handy stylus with air view, enough processing power to get out of the way of its own shadow and if you do your homework can be purchased NEW from indirect channels may be for the SAME $149.99 "sweet spot" (maybe even less once the Note III drops)

May I add "mid-line" Samsung smartphones are lackluster, buggy, and fail to meet expectations. Just make you feel bad that you didn't ante upthe difference. Its almost like they cantracted the prodution of their mid line to either ZTE or K...
One of the most idiotic posts I've ever read. Not everyone has $300 to spend on an on-contract device. It's like saying Kia should stop making cars because Jaguars are better. It's like saying BMW should hang it up on the 1 series because a 3 is su...
You have obviously never been in sales. Do you know how dumb consumers are? People want cheap stuff. That is why the cheap business works. That is why there are free phones in the wireless market.

Yes I agree with you on the device. I would spe...
So you know people who would go for a drive without their drivers license? Smart.

Also - if your phone is all-encompasing, so important and needed that you sweat or can't go anywhere without your phone, that person should probably get a life.

This is a purse phone

These kinds of phones are not for men to carry around in their pockets so the absurdity of carrying one of these beasts around that way won't be an issue. They are designed for ladies and metrosexuals to carry around in their purse so that they can sit back and read celebrity gossip when sipping lattes at Starbucks. When you carry a purse it would be trivially easy to carry one of these beasts around and it makes sense to have an entry or two for this segment of the market.
I think Jerry Seinfeld put it best when he said "It's not a purse, it's european!"

You are 100% right, however - I don't think this phone would fit in any of my pants pockets, you'd need something to carry it around in.

First I want to point out that is the first thing I noticed and made me really not want to even consider the phone the fact that the size of the screen is 6.3 but the quality of the display is terrible. :/ What good is a 6.3 inch screen when you can still see pixels.

The other is I want to point out the hilarity of your comparison it made me laugh for a while.

"It comes across as classy and elegant sort of in the way Shaquille O'Neal does when wearing a suit rather than his basketball uniform."

hahahaha immediately thought of Shaquille O'Neal in Shazzam and Steel. Thanks for that laugh.

Then this "I dropped it a lot, and felt stupid using it as a phone to make calls. "

With a 6.3 inch phone I agree that it is very silly t...
I don't think Samsung meant this phone to be a superior device. I believe it is meant to be a large affordable phone. The phone itself is only $149.99 with an upgrade while the note 2 was $299.99. The Note 3, which is rumored to be launching soon, wil...

I miss

The time when Eric used to write a few lines dedicated to the performance of the mini amplifier for the headphones.
"Music sounded really good through my favorite pair of..."

It is very important for me to have a decent music player in my phone.

I would really like to have a device like this one (specially now that I deal with lots of emails from clients). So sad it just has a so-so battery life. It would fit well inside my big pockets (I'm most often wearing shorts).
To be honest, phones have come a long way. They rarely sound "bad." If they did, I would point that out.

No air gesture

There's no setting for air gesture.
Unless it's hidden somewhere I'm not seeing it.
