    5" screen? No thanks. Phones reach a size where they're just too large. At that point why not carry around a Galaxy Note 7.1?

    Oh my God. Stop with the screen sizes. 4.3 was perfect.

    5" sounds massive but it's not much bigger than the S3's 4.8".

    Any rumours posted now are likely to be inaccurate.

    It will be interesting if those who slammed the iPhone 5 for not being revolutionary enough for them will apply the same high standards to judging the changes in the Galaxy IV....

    Have you held the S3? Have you tried to pocket it? I've done both and in my pocket due to the weight of it and the plastic build, I would be concerned about sitting down. To me, the 4S is perfect but i'm willing to check out the 5. I can't see myself ever wanting anything larger than the 5 though.

    I own an S3 and alternate between a white hard plastic case and see through silicon case.

    Fits in my pockets fine, but I don't wear skinny jeans or anything.

    You'd be concerned sitting down? You must wear some really tight pants. Most girls I know use their purse to hold their phones any way.

    Actually it would be a big difference. When I held the GS3 4.8 against the HTC One X 4.7, the difference in size was very noticeable.

    If that's true, Samsung is getting a bit out of control with the size. Like someone else said, the Galaxy S line should remain 4.9" and under, while the Note can fill that 5"+ market.

    Calm down, Samsung.

    And where are the Nexus 2012 rumors/leaks? :T

    The next Galaxy phone will have the headphone jack at the bottom.

    You can bet your life on that.

    Exactly how I feel. I have the S3 but I don't think I'm willing to go any bigger. This was a bit of an adjustment but as it is.

    I think I'll be getting the next Nexus too. Can't wait for it's release!

    This wouldn't surprise me. Samsung really can't do anything right. If anything, they need to move backwards in screen size. Who honestly thinks they want/need a 5" phone screen?

    I guess make the screen bigger and throw in a stylus they're set with S4. Innovate much?? Oh and fix a couple of motion gestures to actually work in real life.

    The overall size of the phone is what matters when considering a phone 'Too Big'.

    Samsung goes for thin bezels which sort of makes things ok lol.

    The GS3 is not that much bigger than the GS2 in size but the screen is much more bigger.

    Efficiency of space is what counts.

    Why would they do that? They have several Android-based phones that have smaller screens than the Galaxy S3 - some even smaller than the iPhone 5, so you're not stuck with a 4.8" or larger if you want a Samsung phone.

    I'm quite happy with the size of my S3, felt large at first, feels perfect now.
