Oh schnap, quad core in the house

I'm glad that there's a device coming out that will fit yet another niche in the market, but I think that's just way too big for me, personally.

I'm in, is late November the new release date?

yeah me too, if I was a chick It'd be cool because I could carry it in my purse but that's just too big for a pocket... unless those giant pocketed pants come back into style.

Until the Google Glasses come out, I'll settle for a separate phone and tablet.

Yeah definitely too big for a phone.

it actually is, I still don't understand your hate, unless you have micro-sized fingers, you simply don't have the precision a stylus offers.

I've played around w/ the original Note, that is virtually the same size and I don't understand why ppl think it's too big. Everybody said the EVO was too big. Everybody said the SII was too big. They said the SIII was too big. Turns out they weren't. I asked to try it out to fit into my pocket and it really felt no different in my pocket than my current EVO which is much smaller. I am DEFINITELY getting this phone when it comes out.

For one, stylus precision is not necessary for a smart phone. That's kinda why the stylus went away back in the days of Palm devices. Second, it's not actually that precise. And from a few reviews on the Note2, people are complaining that the stylus is overcomplicated and an unnecessary gadget.

There's a reason why nearly every other mobile device has abandoned the sylus as a reliable input method.

Samsung has labored to give its stylus many new, novel abilities, but they’re often app-specific and not that intuitive. From note-taking to pop-up windows to formulas, the S Pen and its myriad tricks are either a cornucopia of mobile functionality or a messy pile of gadgety “stuff” of limited usefulness.

With the stylus, Samsung is trying to fix something that isn't broken.

And it probably wouldn't be that big of a deal if the stylus was as accurate as the old-school pen and paper method.

But it isn't.

When writing or doodling with the stylus, there's a very noticeable delay between when the tip touches the screen and when your marking appears. Yes, it's a lot more accurate than the credit card pads you sign your name on when paying at the supermarket. But the stylus still doesn't have that perfect, natural feeling of a pen and paper.

One way Samsung counters that problem is with a feature that converts your handwriting to plain text so you can copy it to an email or text message. But in my tests, it almost never worked properly. Pointless.

You realize at no point do you have to use the stylus right? Having at least the option to use one in no way could possibly be a detriment to a phone.

True, I'm leaning toward this phone but the stylus has nothing to do with why. I may use it if I find an application for it, but I'm perfectly fine without it.

I know. That's why it's unnecessary. If it came anywhere close to working similar to pen and paper, it would be a great addition. But if that were the case, other models would include it. It's a silly gadget that doesn't work very well.
