As a long time user of the Galaxy Tab 7 and now 7.7 as my primary telephony device I think that it could be a little bigger. :D

Seriously though, this will be on the Xmas list if another 7" tablet doesn't come out in a next few months.

I don't really care what other people think but I am not sure I'd really be able to use a phone that is so large. Also the battery is quite low capacity considering the screen size and the Snapdragon 800 is more about speed than power efficiency.

yeah my only concern at the moment is the battery size, the screen is bigger than the note 2, and has a higher resolution than the note 2 but a smaller battery capacity, so be interesting to see how that turns out. but yeah, im going to get it anyway, and maybe get the new smart watch 2 aswell

This is going to be my next device. Love the design. Love the size. Was waiting for the Note 3, but this is gonna be pretty hard to beat.

No camera flash? In 2013? That's a MASSIVE fail right there.

It's not something you think about, but when you don't have it, you realize just how much you use it.

Waking up during the night and not wanting to wake anyone when you go to grab a drink. Or you drop something under your seat and need a light, or need to crawl under the car. Just random little things. It's actually a bloody important feature to have and in this day and age to NOT have it is just stupid and careless.
