Can Samsung put a 5.9″ screen inside the Note III and keep it the same size as the Note II?

There’s one thing about the Galaxy S4 that doesn’t get a lot of attention. It’s size.

The GS4 measures 136.6 mm tall by 69.8 mm wide. The GS3 on the other hand, it measures 136.6 mm tall by 70.6 mm wide. So despite the fact that the GS4’s screen is 0.2 inches larger than the screen in the GS3, it’s actually a smaller phone.

Another day, another rumor. This time it’s about Motorola’s first “real” phone. I say “real” because Motorola had several devices in development when Google snatched them up back in May 2012.

With that in mind, here’s their nine minute video review of Samsung’s Galaxy S4. There’s also a four page written review on their website, but I feel that the video is more comprehensive.

The Verge makes the best videos on the internet. Period. It’s not even a contest. But who sits in second place? That’s a huge area of contention, but for me it’s an easy answer: Pocketnow. They’re not the biggest tech news site on the internet, but they damn well deserve more attention.

According to Mobile Magazine, Samsung plans to spend 20 million British pounds to to market the Galaxy S4 when it launches in the UK on April 26th. That translates to $30.5 million.

SamMobile, the Samsung fan site that has an above average track record when it comes to rumors, claims to have photos of Samsung’s as yet to be announced Galaxy S4 mini. Like the Galaxy S III mini, the Galaxy S4 mini simply looks like a shrunken down GS4. It’s said to have a 4.3 inch qHD display (960 by 540 pixels) and a dual core 1.6 GHz processor. Not much else is known.

Evernote’s Chief Technology Officer, Dave Engberg, recently gave a talk at the IGNITION Mobile conference. He offered the standard advice you always hear, that it’s better to use each mobile platform’s respective capabilities to their fullest extent than make a mediocre HTML5 website, but he also dropped a huge bombshell.

Here are a few dates I’d like to share with you in order to prove a point about not just HTC, but the smartphone market in general. In less than half a year, HTC somehow managed to announce two flagship phones. What’s worse is that these phones, the DNA and the One, couldn’t be more different from each other.
