    Just a stretched out S4 with a better cpu camera is the same. Disappointing no flexable screen. But still leaps ahead of my Note 1.

        Smartwatches. For now, is there really a need or desire for flexible displays? I like my phones with flat screens.

      You are definitely clueless. Samsung Knox, Samsung Orb, new Spen support, 3gb of ram, Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3 ghz, 32gb/64gb of internal storage, sdcard expansion up to 64, Android 4.3 straight out the box, Lte Advanced capabilities, new bluetooth and wifi standard, and various other features DOES NOT MAKE THIS THE GALAXY S4.

    I wish someone would explain the benefit of a flexible display? I understand how one could argue for a plastic display if it was more durable or somehow scratch proof even though gorilla glass 3 is nearly scratch proof with the benefit of the clarity and sheen of glass. But what would a flexible display do that would be so beneficial? Someone please enlighten me on this as I see no point other than for wearable items or unique rounded or curved style phones. I just cannot see the point that people keep bringing up flexible display for a slate tablet styled phone like the note 3?

      Flexible display means the display is able to flex without shattering. Given the plastic construction of the Galaxy range, the phone can and will flex. Gorilla Class is rigid, with a high tension embedded in the glass, so a case flex can trigger a break. This is mitigated by a ‘flexible’ display, even if it looks for all and intents and purposes to be flat/rigidly held within the frame.

      I know 4 people with a note 2….All of them have broken screens…My wife is one of them…never broke a screen once in her life…It was a two foot drop with a very thin case, I do not believe it would have damaged most phones screen. I believe the size of the note surface makes it more prone to damage, thus a flexible screen should give some durablity

        I have a Note 2 and have done the same. When I had the iPhone 5, I’ve dropped it many times without the screen cracking. The one time I dropped the Note, it shattered. More screen real estate = being more prone to cracking the screen when dropped.

      You could put it in your back pocket and not crack the screen i would think one be one use for a flexible screen.

      It’s not actually really flexible, it just can bend a bit better than the average smartphone screen.

    I sure hope Samsung comes out with 2 versions of the Note 3. A 5.68 and a 6 in version. Or just goes all out with a 6 in.If not I will be selling my note II for a HTC One Max. It also looks real good too. We will find out tomarrow. Can’t wait.

      I am with you, if they come up with a 6″ version, then I will upgrade. If not I will pass.
      I held a Mega 6.3 yesterday and it feels awesome and just the perfect max size for me. I am not upgrading for not even .2″ increase :/

    Here is a youtube video on why flexible OLED sreen are nice and what they can do with them. You are going to have to excuse the lame acting on the video they show.

    The main purpose of the Flexible OLED screen is the unbreakable part. It has nothing to do with the phone flexing, just that the screen not breaking. They will also be able to put other uses for it something Gorilla Glass can’t do. As screens get bigger, they get easier to break because there is more surface. Gorilla Glass can only do so much.

    Glass is nice but it seems every time they make it stronger they use a lot less of it. Put a thicker screen in and be done with it. I don’t need a 8.1mm thick device that shatters when I fart if an 8.3mm version can be dropped from space and survive. Never broken a screen and hope I never do. Thick screen and metal body is a must have for me.

    So nothing new. Another evolution and some software tweaks. I never use any of the “S Pen” apps. They all just take memory on my phone. Wish I could uninstall them.

    Silly people complain about no flexible display – LOL I want to see them using flexible smartphone and complain how annoying it is never to be able to make it perfectly flat again.
