Why would Samsung make a phone that is nearly the size of a tablet?!
Sometimes I think that Google uses Samsung's products to try new screen resolutions for Android...
And I'm all for a smaller size, and would actually like to have a 4-inch or 4.3 inch really high-end android phone in my pocket. That said, I've been using the Note as a testing device for one reason alone: screen-size.
I'm a multimedia junkie and if I'm to watch something on my commute I just can't deal with the 4.x inches in screen size, the Note is actually a great size, although a little small. This device fit in that perfect category where it's not too small, but still small enough to be portable (i.e fit in the bag).
I'm really intrigued to have a closer look at this one.
I used the Galaxy Note briefly, and it fit in my skinny jeans but was totally noticeabe.
Yeah it may not fit great in the pockets of your pants, but it does fit great in the pocket of a blazer, suit, or purse. A lot of the Galaxy Note 2 owners I know keep them in cases in their purses.
