    Samsung is here to play. They are kicking out some serious hardware. I think they are trying to become the GE of the 21st century.

    Lets hope that the OS can use all this power in an efficient way.

    I like the bigger screen and I like that there is less bezel around it so it really isn't that much bigger. Sounds good on the other fronts too.

    Purrty. I like the 4.5 inch screen. Slap that on an iPhone and I'm in heaven. Sadly though it may never happen

    Dumb. It's like buying a semi for your daily driver. The only excuse is if you're a truck driver. Buy a tablet if you need something so big. Ridiculous.

    If this thing has a full RGB subpixel system, it could be quite sweet, but if it's the same pentile matrix crap on the Galaxy S, then FAIL. The subpixels on IPS screens are so tiny that even on the Droid Milestone, I cannot see the pixels from about 10 inches away. Contrast that with the PIXELATED Galaxy S.

    LOL at fanboys complaining about the dot pitch on smartphones.

    Dude, your crappy 22" monitor has huge pixels and I doubt you complain about it. Kind of makes it hard to take you seriously.

    LOL. Um, I was criticizing the PENTILE MATRIX subpixel system used on the SAMOLED displays. Get a clue. Since you don't know what Pentile Matrix is, Google it and educate yourself first.

    My 37-inch (apparently, you can't read either) IPS HDTV blows away just about any computer monitor for color accuracy and image quality...and yeah, it has a standard RGB subpixel system whereby I can hardly distinguish the pixels from a mere 3-feet away (which is normal viewing distance for a 37-inch TV).

    On a Galaxy S - with its atrociously cheap and poor pentile matrix screen - anyone with decent eyes can spot its jagged pixels from normal viewing distances. It has nothing to do with pixel pitch, but the fact that pentile matrix screens are missing 33% of the subpixels found on regular displays and can produce only 2 sets of colors within each side of the subpixel system. Confused by these fun facts? Learn something before laughing, noob.

    I already have something twice this size in my pants - I don't think I've got room for a phone this large...

    4.5" is definitely over the top, but the more larger screen phones come out, the smaller the iphone's 3.5 screen looks.

    That phone is just too big, 4.5" is too much, 4" MAX!

    And it's a single core phone too, wait till MWC in February... where dual core Galaxy S2 is supposed to be announced.
