    There's several threads about the size and getting used to it. Looks like about 98% of people do in a few days, then can't bear the thought of going back to a tiny screen.
    I don't think you'll have much luck with a black Note 2, though, they've already announced the new colors, brown (WTF?) and ruby:http://www.sammobile.com/wp-content/...e7468158_c.jpg

    Boooo I want the black one!!! LoL

    I'm one who doesn't know. I'm considering switching for the bigger screen, but not sure it's worth the hassle of switching. I don't really care about customization. Background colors, skins, etc. just aren't that important to me. Another concern of mine is one handed use, that's important to me. What have you found that you can do with the Note 2 that you couldn't do with the iPhone?
    One is a pocket computer the other is a phone with apps. Watch this and you will see the difference.

    I agree that is incredible, I just don't see myself needing to do any of that with my phone. I guess I didn't have an iPad, that kind of capability would be more compelling for me. But when I'm travelling or hanging out around the house and want to do heavy browsing, watch videos, or read books on my Kindle app, I use the iPad.

    I see the Note as an alternative for when you're out or away from home. You can't put a pad in your pocket so the Note is much easier to carry and more likely to be with you.

    I hear what you're saying. However for me, it seems like any situation where I would need the increased power or screen size, I would have my iPad with me. Otherwise, I'm out socially and don't need to be or want to be doing work. So then a smaller form factor makes more sense to carry. The Note 2 would be better for showing photos to people, but other than that it's hard to think of a situation where I would need the larger form factor and not have the iPad with me.

    Welcome! I understand where you are. I made the same move two months ago. I'm glad I did. The GN2 is a much better platform. I'm sold on Samsung.

    It's not for everyone but once you use it, it's very hard to go back to the iPhone 4 or 5. Could be an age thing too, your eyes and hands can't enjoy using the smaller device. The Note 2 is very skinny too which helps slipping it in your pocket or jacket. The stylus and apps are in a different ballpark too. My wife loves her Note 2 and more people she talks to, the more interested they get.

    oh I agree but where things are headed is pretty awesome. And having a phone that can do what you are asking plus a whole lot more is pretty cool. This phone isn't for everyone but what it does is opening up a whole new way of using technology. The iPhone is just the same stuff all the time.

    I have the Solo HD. To be perfectly honest, I can't really tell the difference between them and regular headphones. My wife spent a lot of money on them so that's why I use them. But the earbuds that came with my Note 2 sounded better.

    My girl bought me the same beats. A month later we was wrestling goofing around when I landed dead smack on top of em and broke em. Have a pair of 10$ RCA headphones which sound identical to the beats.

    Just last night I took my sister to get a galaxy note 2. Color me impressed! I left my iPhone 5 for a Droid DNA briefly in December, but came back. Beautiful phone, just wasn't for me. After playing with the Note 2 and giving it the back pocket test, I'm sold...well almost. Battery life is still the one thing that I'm not sure about. I know it is good, but I have no real world experience in the way I use a phone (which is hardly considered power use). I am definitely thinking really hard as I have another upgrade coming the 21st. After iOS for the last 3 years, I may be able to finally make that jump. Plus, have you seen the size of that screen!?!?!

    The battery is close the iPhone 5. For the screen size and its capabilities, that's pretty impressive.

    If you are getting battery life like that sgtjiggy, I feel a whole lot better about the battery life. I'm actually really excited and can't wait for the 21st to come.

    Do it, and you won't regret it. You should be able to easily sell the iPhone on ebay or Craigslist, and you should get the gray one. Everyone has the white one.

    Sounds like me. I charge mine every other night. If I happen to plug it into my PC USB for any reason, I just leave it in for a few hours and I get an extra day.

    To update my own thread here, I just sold the iPhone 4 which was my backup. It was hard at first to think I would ever sell it but after a months with the Note 2 and Android, I knew I could never go back to it. I sold it to a nice gentleman who isn't technical and was moving from a very old Blackberry phone. He was very happy and it was suited for him because he was overwhelmed just by the possibilities of upgrading. For some, iOS works for them but when you're an advanced computer user, you quickly realize iOS is not made for us.
