The Galaxy Note 8 is a tablet with no cell phone features. Lol.

An argument can be made that with a smaller screen size, quality is that much more important. Also, it looks like Apple is giving in (sigh) and will make a 5" phone this upcoming generation or the next.

But I don't think cowmoo wants the discussion to head that way- so I won't.

I have a GS3. Supposedly one of the features it has is wireless charging but I've never heard of anyone using that. I wouldn't even know how to use it. I miss the old blackberrys that just dropped in a cradle to charge via two external charging prongs built into the side of the phone. easy.

anyway i'll probably pick up a gs4. i imagine that eye tracking won't be a good feature. it'll likely only work in good light and use lots of power (via the camera maybe?) do not like. i usually turn off all that crap off anyway. like the speech junk

Yea but apple is behind like 2 years with a 4" screen. I think 5" should be the standard and will most likely be pretty soon.

Regardless, the S4 should be significantly better than its counterparts and im excited to see it revealed this coming thurs.

My wife just got the HTC DNA, which has the same size screen.

And just like my penis, it's too damn big and is hard to handle with one hand.

The Galaxy Nexus is now an outdated phone which should be pulled off of the market.

Its not your penis but the lack of hand size your wife has.

I guess it depends on how you use your phone. I use mine only when I have to accept a meeting invite, reply to an email, or send a text. I barely talk on the bitch. The only time I use it for "entertainment" is when I'm taking a dump. I don't need a phone the size of a damn poptart.

Then there are those there are vegged out staring at their phones 90% of the day. I guess it appeals to them.

And yes, my penis has a 5" screen.
