This may therefore explain why Apple has not been in a hurry to put into the market an iPhone with a big screen. Even so, Samsung in Samsung Tomorrow which is its promotional blog announced having shipped close to 10 million Galaxy note 3 phablets. In essence, phablets have been defined by phones that have screens with over 5 inches. This android phones make up to 21 percent of the Smartphones market

According to those numbers, Samsung revealed that the big screened Note 3 Phablet only accounted for only 1/10th of 1/3rd of its 2013 sales. This also points out that oversized phones are not as attractive as those that are of a considerable size. As such Galaxy Note 4 will similarly attract sales made by its predecessor. Worth noting is the fact that most of the phablets sell in Asia and within South Korea.
