Ok, thanks again for directing me to the proper thread. Now I want the G2, the Galaxy Mega, or the Note III. Why the G2? It's the 4G advanced S4. The Mega.... well obviously I'm the type that can't afford to have a tablet and a phone simply because bills and no wifi atm.... The Note III I don't know I like it due to I loved the 2. What can be a deal breaker if there is no 2.5/6ghz (Clearwire LTE) connectivity, or no 800 lte. The Mega has mid-range specs compared to all phones listed above, its a bigger less powerful S4, not a phone I want to be with two years from now so I'll be fine with either the G2 or the Note III (depending on the LTE bands it supports)

CDMA1X, EV-DO, GSM, W-CDMA, and LTE all share the same transmit path, thus no SVDO nor SVLTE. Meh didnt care for it too much, it was nice when i had LTE when I was on the phone

... Question is, how long 'til it's available?

Bonus question: on-contract price? $250?? $300?

Many different sites have it pegged for early Sept release. Some say from early to mid Sept.

Looking at this picture hopes this isnt the final build. It makes me think of the iPhone 5.

Note 3
I heard about the note 3. but haven't heard anything as of yet to make me want to run out and get it right when it drops on the market. unless I missed some of the specs?
