If there's a thread on this, I couldn't find it.

It's being announced next week and from what I've read it sounds like it could be a powerhouse, definitely looking forward to seeing what they're offering when it's announced.

I had the S3 for a week, but sent it back because I had zero service with T mobile. What are the phone dimensions? I think the S3 was the limit as to how large a phone could "comfortably" be. They went up in screen size... completely unnecessariy IMO, however maybe the dimensions of the phone are near identical and the screen is just closer to the edge

Regardless, iPhone5 user now

I'm kind of surprised to see the screen getting that big. The S3's is 4.8" and huge... its actually bigger than my current phone (old t-mobile G2) The Note II's screen is 5.55" and its supposed to be kinda tablet like.

The scrolling could be cool but I wonder how well it will work when driving and such.

Finally they got their shit together on wireless charging. Its not a difficult thing to get figured out.

Hopefully its battery life is good. I won't be getting one because I wont get a phone unless it has a physical qwerty keyboard

I hate the fact that supposedly IP5 screen is suppose to be reallygood but its only 4". Such a waste on a small surface area.

Now Samsung is going to release Galaxy Note 8.0 with an 8inch screen, which is mind boggling for a cell phone.
