Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to rock seriously massive battery?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to rock seriously massive battery?With the Moto X and LG G2 now very much a reality, the rumour mill is eagerly anticipating imminent new products from Apple, Sony, HTC and – last but not least – Samsung.

It’s largely accepted that the South Koreans are working on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and now we’re told that it’ll have a significantly meaty battery.

Specifically, according to phoneArena, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be powered by a 3,450mAh juice unit, making it the largest battery in a Samsung smartphone/phablet to date.

Uhm, not including the outrageous Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, which is clearly way more tablet than it is phone.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note had a 2,500mAh battery, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 weighed in with 3,100mAh. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is worth a mention too, at 3,200mAh.

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be pretty demanding on the old spec front. The 3,450mAh battery will supposedly power a 5.7in 1080p display (and possibly two further sizes), Exynos 5 Octa processor, and as much as 3GB of RAM.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch will almost certainly go down at IFA 2013 in Berlin, which gets underway in just under four weeks. If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, it might possibly maybe be joined by the 20MP Sony "Honami" Xperia i1 and the 5.9in HTC One Max.

I read a review on Amazon the other day - I think for an old E-series device.... someone was b*tching because he couldn't get more than 5 days on a single charge.
Times have changed.

The battery on my mobile I'm currently using is a 500 mAh and it get's me through the whole week. Did I mention it was a cheapo Alcatel that I bought from CarPhoneWarehouse for a fiver last year... delievered and TCB!!

Yay. I'm considering getting a dumbphone and some used iPod-ish thing for a bit of online action when near WiFi. A lot of the stuff that is now added to smartphones I don't need.
Only hesitating because I do like a decent camera.
Carrying 3 devices seems a bit excessive.

Which is why I sold my HTC ONE. Took me a short amount of time to realise that it was over priced tat. Can't decide what to get so I'll wait for the next batch of phones to come out (including iPhone 5S and everything at IFA) and hopefully the price of older smartphones will drop.

Yep. Been meaning to replace my cranky N9 for most of this year. Nothing feels right.
The HTC One I got impressed me - until I turned it on. The camera was okay, but nothing to justify the gorgeous bulk and bloat. Since I like a decent camera, the Lumia 925 has been on my radar, but my dislike of everything M$ and some of WP's restrictions make it a no-no. Plus, it seems the video performance isn't so great.
Z10 I've already said more than enough about. The SGS3 p*ssed me off so much I couldn't even touch the SGS4 store dummy.

The iPhone 5S or 6 or whatever it's going to be called might be it (devil you know, and all...), but who knows how long to a jailbreak - without which I wouldn't use an iDevice.
Oddly enough, I do like the somewhat subdued UI that Huawei slapped onto JB on the P6; but still, I think I should avoid Android untilit's out of BETA :p
So maybe I'll just juggle the N9 and my old E75 until something happens.
