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)

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.

Bummer.

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 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).

No air gesture

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

6.3?

Jesus Cristos that's HUGE. What's the official line between smartphone/tablet? 7+ inches is tablet, below 7 inches is phone? Who wants a phone that big?
