    Do you remember the Huawei Ascend Mate and how it screen size compare to the Galaxy Note II?​
    Samsung manage to even top that with the omega announcement of their Mega series.​

    Depending on the price, I might finally be able to put my htc hd2 to rest and get the 6.3in Mega, man!

    ...that's pretty freaking stupid.

    I really don't see the point in buying those "big phones" - they're too big to be comfortable as a phone and too small to be considered an acceptable tablet - it's the middle ground and in this case, that's a bad thing in my opinion.

    It's meant more for the serious business types, let's be honest. This isn't for every day use like for most people these days who get phones. I'd assume these are also for the types of people who have to travel a lot for business.

    The larger phone has a weaker processor?

    I think the era of PDA's and Palmphones taught everyone that such devices don't really help in business as much as they claim to. :P I was just voicing out my disapproval when it comes to having a phone the size of a paddle.

    Too freaking big. I'm contented with my S3 for the next couple of years.

    MHz Myth says "Hi!" again - until we find out what kind of processors those are, that rating alone doesn't help much. ;)

    Why buy a phone if its screen isn't as big (on average) as your dick?

    To buy anything else would be a major boner.

    I see they didn't even bother putting top of the line hardware in it

    We're going to start seeing adult jokes about the screen sizes...

    EDIT: Gahars already started it.

    I expect these to be in the $900 mark when they hit here; the gs3 are already outrageously expensive.

    I knew of a time where people wanted smaller and smaller phones.

    Considering the note 3 is coming and the Megas aren't using the highest specs, they wouldn't be too much price over prices of phones now, saying that from over here of course.

    The note is probably going to be a bit bigger too.
