    It feels like choosing between Ford T-150 or T-350 as my wife birthday present.

    MS and Sammy need to collaborate on a line of phones/tablets....

    I suggest that they name them: The "Pee Wee Phone", and the "Muff Tablet".

    When you choose which size Samsung phone you want it's not a list it's a slider.

    There appear to be some gaps they need to fill. I imagine the people hired in the R&D expansion (up to 25,000 now if I recall correctly) will soon resolve this.

    This is from the onion.com, right?

    ...right?

    Jesus Christ. I don't even.. This has dwelved into self parody. Who the **** is this for? It's like Samsung is mocking everyone, and seeing how far they can go. Mark my words, this giant phone thing is a trend and WILL die off. Samsung is just currently milking it for all it's worth, just like any company who does not respect it's consumers.

    This proves Sammy is more "innovative" than Apple. Those sizes > Apple's 3.5 and 4. /s

    You left off the fine print:



    If you're an NBA player.


    Of course you can 'hold' it in one hand. I can "hold" my 15" laptop in one hand.  You can't USE it with one hand.

    What sort of f***ing retard is gonna want let alone buy one of these as a phone. This must be for midgets who want a tablet.


    God help anyone I meet who has one of these, they are going to get taunted continuously for their choice of phone of which its size is inversely proportional to their IQ.

    They were twentyish, skinny and petite in stature. One of them made eye contact with me and he swung his head away from me, to concentrate on his call, guess. I couldn't see anything more than his hand, the phone, and a tuft of hair.


     


    Is this an object of having a giant phone? To cover your face like a mini phone booth?


     


    While we were sitting over the twenty minutes we were there, neither used their Samsungs for anything but phone calls. Never pulled out the stylus. Never used an app.



    Yeah, I was going to call you racist. But then you went on to point out that they were twentyish, skinny, and petite in stature.


    So... I guess you're racist and an asshole...(?)  What else was the take-away from your comment? That the guy didn't flirt with you?
