False picture[edit]

That picture on the top of the page says that it's Galaxy Note 4 in the photo. But it's not, it's probably Galaxy Note Original. Fix that please :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.248.145.131 (talk) 19:35, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Merge with Phablets.[edit]

There is no clear distinction between "Phablet" and "Smartphone". Both are devices which can make and receive calls and are held to the ear. And in many cases are still just as usable with one hand. Some larger phones also have the ability to be used at a smaller display area to allow one hand use. Such as the larger Sharp Aquos Zeta series. Also larger screens is a natural evolution of smartphones as technology increases and becomes cheaper to produce. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 8739ccc (talkcontribs) 06:58, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
