Samsung claims next Galaxy Note will have new form factor | Android and Me. The best smartphone I've ever had is my Note 3. I have kept it longer, used it more, and it has never disappointed. However, Samsung is planning to change the "form factor" (whatever that means) in the next iteration of the flagship device. I hope they still make this form factor, because, to my mind, it is perfect already. What changes are coming? No one is saying; but, think curved screen, or similar next tech. I don't like boxing my phones in cases, so a kick stand would be nice. But, I suppose I will have to have it when it comes. My addiction compels me.
