    Taste it. Im sorry but as a previous iphone owner, there is nothing an iphone does that an android device cant do better. I am so glad I dont have to go to itunes for every little thing. You cant do anything on an iOS device unless steve jobs' ghost says you can. Ive jailbroken my old iphone quite a few times and it was still behind android in terms of functionality. And thats with the android device remaining stock.

    One thing iphone does better naturally is itunesU. There is no official app for it though there is tunes viewer. Problem is if the lecturer makes his lecture private, you need an ios device to login and see the content....

Even though you can put a camera shortcut on the lockscreen, I still have to unlock the phone before the camera opens and anyone with kids knows, if you take too long you miss out on the opportunity for a great shot.
    I would argue against this point.With the iphone you still have to hit the home button to turn on the lockscreen and then swipe up on the camera softbutton.
    This is no different than having the camera as a shortcut on the Note 2.
    Hit home button and swipe up on the camera.
    Alternatively you can even set it so when u hit home button with your thumb on the screen and rotate into camera position it auto launches the camera.

    HEHE! Sort of a variation on my personal position: I will never purchase another Apple product of ANY KIND. I got caught up in the ipod craze and own at least 10 ipods of various models. heck between my wife and I we have FOUR touches. Never again will I be going into an Apple store to consider the purchase of ANYTHING they have got for sale. It is a promise that is easily kept.

    I had 1 ipod touch, and it fried after 2-3 years. That plus knowing how bare bones iOS is, made me now very wanna touch an Apple product again.

    Yeah, one thing that annoys me is when people (such as lecturers) don't accommodate for Android users :-(

    Been in the you section at Wal-Mart recently? Lots of toys that include the iPhone or iPad app. Think it off the entire section, I saw one or two that accommodated android. I'm stuck of everyone playing iPhone favoritism... look at market share, accommodate us who don't want the same old iCrap.

    It's pretty sad. But Amazon has some great stuff for Android phones.

    As iPhone's market share keeps shrinking and Android's keeps growing, those that want to only support iPhone will eventually be replaced by former competitors who chose to support Android.

    Default What can the new iphone 5 do better than the Note 2?

    The iPhone certainly can't get people laughing when you hold it up to your ear, or make you look like you have a pizza box in your pocket. Lol. I honestly tried to get my wife to consider a Note 2 and she just gave me the evil eye - then she laughed and laughed when I told her it really was a phone.

    Woman prefer the S3 over the note because it's a little smaller with similar features minus the s-pen. I already promised my gf to get her the new S4 when it comes out because she hates her iphone 5 with a passion lil

    Not that I'd get an iphone, mind you, but you can get it with more then 16gb of internal storage. I'm hoping the next round of Android phones (GN3, GS4, etc) rectify this.

    The iphone 5 has nothing on the galaxy Note 2. Not even close.

    Apple's advantage used to be that you can just pick it up and use it because it was just so simple but now android is just as some if not easier than an iphone.

    I think the Note 2 is overall superior to the iPhone 5 but I like the 3d sculpted look of the iOS buttons and some labels. I also like the flipping transitions between screens and the use by developers of deep looking transparent color icons.

    You mean these icons? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....Iphone5Screen
    The ones that are available on the Google play store by the boat load? I skinned my daughters SGS2 to look just like an iphone. The best part is even though it looks the same as an iphone it still does way more.

    She hates that the iphone 5 has very rudimentary user interface, she hates the restrictions that service providers place on the phone, she hates the small screen, and she hates the lack of customization.

    Eww I hate the look of the iphone. Everything you just described makes me cringe lol. Android has surpassed the iOS with ice cream sandwich and jelly bean.

    To each their peach. I have a Note 2, so I use Jelly Bean via TouchWiz, but I still like the 3d sculpted look of the iOS buttons and some labels, the flipping transitions between screens and the use by iOS developers of deep looking transparent color icons. Not that the Note 2 is the pits or anything, it's nice and it's the first Android user interface that I like, but I do like those those touches of iOS.
