    What about SG3? I think that would be more of a comparison to iphone than the note 2 because of size wouldnt you think?

    If it is a choice restricted to the two phones, Note 2.

    Nexus 4. Hands down. Much better comparison to an iphone. IPS LCD screen, vanilla android, updates, speed, perfect size. Buy and and go to any carrier that can support it. You will not be disappointed.

    You got a hate on for the N4. Not sure why. It too delicate for you?

    Nope it is just overrated and overhyped. It is a device with few things going for it, but yet it is talked about like it is the second coming. It not only is bad on its own, but it sets a terrible example for future phones.

    Tell you what. I will match the N4 with my s3 feature for feature and we shall see which gives more options and a more well rounded user experience.

    I'm not crazy about the iPhone, but I can't imagine having a Note as my daily driver. No way.
    I was sceptical at first but after using note for a year now ill never go back to iphone. Theres no such thing as oversized screen. More like a perfect size to me. I've never felt so comfortable when browsing websites and watching videos on my note. I had to use my ipad to watch movies because iphone screen is just too small.
    I personally like Samsung approach on using plastic as note back cover. Its hard to break and light. but i have to admit that iphone back cover looks very sexy and beautiful.

    90% of people buying the N4 are doing it purely for updates, hackability and price. Nothing more. The Note 2 blows everything out of the water with features and the S3 is an awesome phone, but after having a SGS2 I got tired of waiting for updates. And adding custom Roms aren't everyone's cup of tea. If you like the S3 then that's awesome. I love the N4 and being carrier free for half the price.

    One X rooted with custom ROM is very good value plus I feel better than iPhone 5 in several ways. S3 and N2 not to my taste and was more expensive anyway.

    Take hackability out of it and you are right. The thing is though that all the negatives with the n4 outweigh those two positives. I won't even go into all the threads from users with the updates complaining about how many issues they are having.

    Lol... I just was catching up on posts in other forums. I guess that the N4 being delicate is on your mind a lot

    I don't think you've held the Note 2. The one thing the Note 2 is not and that is flimsy/cheap feeling. You might not like the size, which I love, but the phone does not feel cheap.

    The cheap feel comment is just common amongst Samsung haters. Though I admit the feel is different, it isn't bad

    I've always loved the fluidity and simplicity of the iPhone. The retina display always amazed me, too.
    The great thing about the iPhone is that specs don't always matter, because iOS is optimized especially for the iPhone.
    That optimization is something android will never have, and android phones will have to rely on insane processors and large amounts of RAM to run 4.1 as smoothly as the iPhone 5 runs iOS6.
    But I still love the screen of the Galaxy S3, and the freedom of its software, along with its nifty features to make it my phone of choice.

    Actually no. If you know how to do it Android offers a very compelling experience eg my HTC phone now. Amazingly fast, Trickster mod and custom ROM it's even now cooler in temperature.

    This screen is also unbelievable like the iPad 3 screen but almost 5 inches and in a smartphone form factor.

    I'm not sure what all the negatives are that you speak of. It is more breakable but all phones break. I always put a case on mine so it doesn't matter. All the fuss about plastic etc doesn't mean much to me. I will miss the removable battery to some degree but I have had fantastic battery so far after 3 days compared to my SGS2. SD card isn't as big of a deal. Would I take it? Sure, but I'm on wifi most of the time so I can do what I need. I am in Canada so I am running LTE. I downloaded yesterday at 38mb sec.

    But I get updates immediately which I like. This one feature out weighs all the others combined.

    Weird thing is this optimization makes it more expensive than my android phone. There's nothing great about ios. Iphone doesn't need a good spec because ios is too simple with 900 x 640 resolution of course games and app would run smoother.

    I can get an s3 way cheaper and better spec and bigger screen and resolution than iphone.
    Some of Hardcore fanboys always try so hard to make iphone looks good and other looks bad.

    I own 2 iphones. The 3gs and 4g. And an ipad too.

    I have both Note2 and iphone5 went to my wife at the end. We both use each others phone and she prefers the i5.

    For me the lack of jailbreak made me jump ship from apple!

    So it isn't broken yet? I knew it was tough but figured it was done by now. Maybe they asked moto how to do it

    Note 2 is great if you want a very large screen.

    In the middle we have Galaxy S3 and a few others by HTC and LG.

    As soon as you try a working version ,you'll know if you like the size.
