For me this Samsung when I saw the phone initially I thought the reason -- -- it's an amazing impact this impart the bigger screen.
And on the resolution and all these things through these guys.
Take a big chance sort of diminishing the brand so to speak with coming out with this new version of it that that's lesser screen that it takes away.
All -- pluses from the product are.
You know one of my big complaints about Samsung in the galaxy line is that they threw -- so much crap in it as it is so to have a phone appeals some of that back I'm calling it sort of -- decaf.

You brought up a great point though in your -- coming -- -- segment which is should apple be worried you know apple sort of sits back and waits in his this marketplace this middle market budget -- a place that apple wants to planes so far they have the iPhone -- high end phone.
-- are they gonna sit back like they usually do with those mid range iPad the iPad mini me -- you know there's a marketplace for a seven inch iPad.
