    They made them too big, too normie orientated and too expensive for compromises. The note was for the geek or hardcore user who wanted everything. It wasn't a concept meant for a range, it wasn't a concept meant for batteries that couldn't be swapped out. It was a product for all those people who didn't fit into the traditional smartphone user bracket but ended up being the same... with a pen that became a gimmick rather than a tool. The note wasn't a fashion statement, but that's what they tried to make it.

    Re: Samsung has no plans for next gen Galaxy Note say insiders

    I think it's the right move. The S-Pen has not been needed for many many years now and has been a bit of a throw-back item in reality.,..even if there are a few die hard fans, it really serves no purpose for most users other than taking up valuable space in the hardware. All good android software is touch optimized now - so there isn't really a big enough market for it in the west at least. The note's other big USP of large screens isn't unique anymore, so take that away and you just have a Galaxy SXX phone.

    The fold makes more sense as the top end product now. Samsung did quite frankly an amazing job with the Z fold 2, taking it from a concept/prototype device range (the fold 1 & Z Flip) to a true production ready "real" phone that genuinely "just works" and deserves flagship status. If they can get the price down a touch, remove the punch-holes and apply some better screen protectors out of the box, they will really be on to a winner. I am a bit biased as I own one, but nearly 3 months into ownership I still feel it's the best phone i've ever owned.

    I just hope they don't decide to add S-Pen support to the fold 3 to appease that tiny % of the fanbase - we don't need the extra bulk & cost that it offers.

    Another year another no more "Note" at least for the last 4 years.

    S pen comparability is been added to the "S" and possibly the fold series and to be sold separate .

    As for the folds they have a way to go yet

    BORING TRENDS: Good move by Samsung, the smartphone arena has become saturated by the same technologies for years, 64mp camera, 'magical' neural link processor blah-blah-blah only BIG change has been the 5G implementation.

    I still remember when we laughed about images like this. Sadly, it's the norm today. And with that, the Samsung Galaxy Note line has lost its raison d'ĂȘtre.

    Re: Samsung has no plans for next gen Galaxy Note say insiders

    I've been with Samsung throughout the smartphone era, but if they're dropping the Note range I might as well go for any of the other manufacturers on my next upgrade (the Pixel and OnePlus have piqued my interest in the recent past).

    Clearly they still make good phones, but between this announcement and the fact that others have now implemented multi-tasking they don't really have any worthwhile USPs left.

    Pixel stuck with 1 camera setups at moment. One Plus issues with software upgrades. I mean each to their own but saying that they have not got any USP's seems a bit rash, especially as nearly every year the demise of the Note range has been announced and/or leaked

    Pixel has >1 camera in all bar the most budget one. What USPs do you think samsung has? They aren't the only manufacturer with multi camera setups, or software updates

    I never said they did... just surprised that someone said they hadn't any. Ecosystem with watch etc. for me. Each to their own I guess

    That S-Pen really is fantastic. It's weird how I use that in preference to the touch screen without even thinking about it...
