A qHD screen in 2012??! Srsly? I thought we were past that foolishness in 2011.

I blame the Asian Guy who is trying to confirm every "nerd" stereotype known to man (depicted) for this gaffe.

Not a very attractive device with that low rez. The speakers must be there to annoy everyone in a public space because no matter how hard theyll try, there is no way to have high quality sound out of tiny speakers thats loud at the same time.

Careful Samsung. Apple might patent "white electronics" :)

Tell me they put some decent sounding speakers on there and that it has decent battery life and I'm sold.

ya, im sure they can fit a couple 15inchers into a 5.8 inch galaxy meanwhile being able to power the 15inchers with a couple thousand watts without the battery dying immediately. as rediculous as it sounds, you still think its possible?

I'll tell you what I know isn't possible, it's not possible to know how something sounds, good or bad, without actually hearing it.

I am not expecting high fidelity sound out of something this small, but they may have something "passable".

Thank you for your very helpful and well thought out reply.

So a 5.8" screen and only a 960x540 resolution?

The Galaxy Note 2 is supposed to have a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 display. What gives? I'll take the Note 2 instead. Thanks.

Yeah they should have put one of those nifty 4k screen on it!
