Im kind of at a loss for words on this one.

Yes, it is a large phone
Yes, it is not inteded for the general population

but there is no need to hammer it for its size. The size is what makes it unique and functional! Cant wait to get my carbon blue on friday and prove them wrong!!

That is THE strangest hands-on I have ever read.
The phone is too big. You will look stupid talking on it, people will laugh at you, and youíll be unhappy if you buy it. I really canít get around this, unfortunately, because Samsung pushed things way too far this time.
Not even sure what to say.

The Galaxy Note essentially has everything you’d want in a smartphone: a great dual-core processor, a solid camera, a beautiful display and good build quality, and it runs on AT&T’s new 4G LTE network that delivers incredibly fast downloads speeds. Plus the battery seems actually decent so far, which is a triumph for modern smartphones.

Throw all of that right out the window.

The phone is too big.

Essentially: Nothing but praise, but it's too big!

If you look at the first picture you can see that the "reviewer" has pretty small hands. It's fair to write an article saying that the phone doesn't work for you, but to say that anyone who uses the phone looks ridiculous and that people will laugh at you is just poor journalism.

I think size 6 shoes are too small, but I don't go around criticizing people that wear them...

it's not something I hide...I can't stand that site.. they rarely back anything up

but this kind of thing happens often with android phones in general....

they get used to simply point out how much better some other device is.

Did you expect anything less from this apple fanboi? He just had not been told by apple yet that a 5.3 inch screen is better than a 3.5 inch screen.

No sense in waiting to get the phone to prove him "wrong". The phone is / will be amazing and the biggest reason I personally bought it was for its size. The guy who wrote the article doesn't like things that are big.......just the same way some people would prefer to drive a Civic over a lifted F350 Diesel. Big deal? The guy is entitled to his opinion as much as you are entitled to your right to buy and enjoy the best smartphone currently out.

I will give him 2 thumbs up on the comment about Android Phones having 7 different flagships in the same year......that part needed to be said. Each time I walk into an AT&T or Verizon store, they have a different lineup of Android phones....but the iPhone is sitting there...in the same place it has for months.....and still outselling all the rest.

Be secure with your purchase - and use it because YOU want to use it, not to use it to prove someone else wrong. That's just......silly.

I guess jockey-sized hipsters shouldn't be reviewing Samsung devices ...

His article kind of reminds me of the Burger King commercial about the guy that doesn't want to go and get a BK Double Cheeseburger because it will make his hands look small.
