I own a Note II and I love having a big phone but this is absurd. A 5.5" screen is already pushing the limit of being able to use my phone one-handed. A ~6.5" screen is ridiculous and will most definitely need 2 hands unless you're 7 feet tall and in the NBA.
I have the original Note at 5.3 inches but agree with the other guys that 6.5 is getting ridiculous. Watch the Sony video for this phone on YouTube with the lady holding it walking down the street and almost drops it. It looks way out of place in her tiny hands. I'm a big guy and that phone is too much. But its cool tech.
Damn why would anyone need that phone. Too big and probably too expensive. Cell phones are made for calling (Im happy with my nokia (not nuke proof one, but Xpress music)).
Invest that grand in better computer rather than in phone.
