    what's your reason? I'm getting it because I want to be able to read my cell phone screen without grampa glasses.. Oh, and because it's a great device!

    I want this phone because my eyes are older than the rest of me and because, for a couple weeks last year, I tried a 7" HTC Flyer tablet which continually bugged me---Felt as if it should be used for texting and talking (but couldn't be, of course). I'm waaaay excited about the Note II and hope it is imminently released to USA carriers.

    ^^ Loved this reply.

    My upgrade is burning a hole in my pocket. I was really close to getting the S3 when rumors of the Note 2 started appearing. That made me decide to wait it out.

    After using an iPhone for years, I've figured out what I want and need a smartphone to do.

    That is to say, my app usage is very different on my smartphone vs. my tablet. Some crossover -- like syncing bookmarks -- is great but for the most part I use these devices in very different ways.

    I've discovered that making calls is, for me, not the activity I do most on my smartphone; in fact, it ranks like #4 in activities I spend the most time doing on a mobile device. I access the web the most and want my web-accessing experience to be the best I can make it.

    So, for me, the top reason to get the Galaxy Note 2 is the screen size. I want a phablet, I want a big old window looking onto the internet and my data. I also want to keep it in my pocket, something I can't do with my iPad.

    There are Android versions of most all the apps I use on my iPhone. For certain ones, there are easily-instituted alternates. I point this out because it's not the Android OS so much that I find appealing (even though it is very nice and I love its very customizable options, something I didn't get much of from iOS).

    When the Note 2 hits AT&T here in the U.S., I'm jumping on board and buying this bad-boy as my communications device. My iPhone 4 and its tiny 3.5 screen will become a wifi-tethered music player I keep in my car.

    Sorry for the rambling reply -- I just want to be sure I'm making sense.

    Better yet, sell the iPhone 4 and get a 5th gen iPod touch!

    Of course you can survive the switch! I've loved my HTC Fuze and Inspire 4G the past 4-5 years, but I look sooooo forward to the Note II !

    Bigger is better.

    I've had a Dell Streak for 2 years and there is no way I can go back to a small phone. I'm sort of glad the iPhone has finally moved to a 4" screen, cause my wife's 3.7" iPhone looks just TINY compared to mine. Most of our phones are media machines, and the bigger screen takes full advantage of that. Now adding in the s-pen (stylus) adds creation capability to it. i had an old touchscreen PDA for years. I'm looking forward to getting back to a true all-in-one device that can do everything and do it well.

    As a road warrior I've always thought a tablet with text talk capabilities would be sweet!
    Oh yeah, now there's the note2. If VZW ever gets it I'd bet it would sell very well.

    I have a nook color I just mostly for productivity apps and heavy reading, books, comics, etc
    I use my phone phone for reading news and forums and gaming,I find seven inches to be a bit ungainly for playing touch screen games, so something right in between four and seven inches sounds great to me
    Also the specs, can't beat 'em

    I spend a lot of time away from home for 24+ hours at a time so I could really use the bigger screen for video, browsing, better email viewing, games, and reading. Not to mention finally having a phone with a front AND rear facing camera so I can video chat with my kiddos. Couple that with the quad core processor and 2 gig of ram and I am thinking this phone was MADE for me.


    I wonder how big it will be if they make an Otterbox for it...? lol.

    I've never oned a smartphone that wasn't an htc. Sense and their build quality has always been my favorite. I had the sensation and was satisfied with it but wanted a new one. The one s didn't satisfy me, not big enough. That's when I laid eyes on the galaxy s3! Had to have it.

    I was very worried about the switch, I remembered the touchwiz of not long ago and am actually quite surprised. I remember playing with the gs2 and thinking this touchwiz is killing it for me. But I must admit I'm not minding it on the gs3, actually impressed. No problem switching. Don't get me wrong though, I am way more terrified of dropping this gs3.

    Now on to the note 2. I really want it too now! I'm thinking maybe I should get the titanium (I have the white gs3) and then I'll just use which ever one tickles my fancy that day. I know it's odd but I really like both. Really liking huge screen!

    I hope someone does a comparison between the new and the original Note.
    Want to see a big jump in performance.

    Basically, I use the internet on my phone alot. And, I always wished the screen was just a little bit bigger. So, this is perfect.
