    Love my Note 2, but I still use my Nexus 7 around the house and primarily use the Note 2 when away from home. I just prefer the larger 7" screen on the Nexus 7 when I'm at home.

    Same exact thing for me. Note loses out to the N7 at home. And I'm kinda psyched about the 8" Note Tablet coming out...

    At home I use the tablet. I got the note 2 so I wouldn't have to carry two things when traveling. So far the note 2 has been enough when traveling.

    I still use my iPad 3 LTE, but not as much as before the N2. I picked up a Note 10.1 wifi at Costco on Sunday, but I haven't opened it yet. I have seen that Verizon is coming out with an LTE version of the Note 10.1 and I would like to see pricing before I open the wifi version. I think I will use that one to take notes at meetings, which happen way too much. I like the larger size for serious web surfing and watching video. Other than that the N2 has filled the need for some of the things I used to do more frequently on my iPad.

    I still like the combination of a regular sized phone and a full sized tablet. I had my Note 2 for two months and it was awesome. But still doesn't compare to a regular smartphone and a tablet.

    Did you switch away from the note? I notice past tense

    Yea it actually is, I sold my ipad 3 (I got a monster deal on it) and actually picked up a cheaper nexus 7 for the few times I need a tablet. I dont own a labtop anymore so its pretty much my nexus 7 (read stuff on it before bed), my desktop that I use mainly as a media center for my entertainment system, and my note 2 that I use for everything else.

    I also use my phone to stream media at my girlfriends house when we wanna watch movies on her tv.

    That depends a lot on what you want to do.

    I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 and had a Nexus 4 that I traded for an off contract unlocked T-mobile Galaxy Note 2.

    The nexus 4 had no chance of replacing my Gnote10 but with the Note 2 I find myself using the Gnote10 much less.

    Now from what I have read and my experience with the Nexus 4 I think the Note 2 would easily replace a Nexus 10. As the only advantage of the Nexus 10 would be the size and the quick updates (which can cause problems them selves). While the Note 2 offers quite a lot of screen size and the resolution combined with the different pixel characteristics the Note 2 has makes reading and such a pleasure even for my old tired eyes.

    I feel the Note 2 can't really replace my Gnote10 because of some special apps that won't run on the note 2 (like PS Touch) and the extra screen size for drawing the Gnote10 offers. Hope this helps.

    It did for me. For I use to carry a 4" phone and a 7" tablet everywhere I went. since I got my note I only take my note. I don't even use my 7" at home.

    My Note 2 did replace my N7. As far as a 10 inch tablet though, I think I would still use that size tablet but wouldn't carry it around with me. It's be for home usage. But unless I got an extremely good deal on a 10 incher, the Note 2 satisfies any of my needs, from Web browsing to playing games

    I use my phone when I'm out and about and infuse my tablet when home. So it makes having both beneficial.

    I've had my Note II for a week but still use my GT 2 7.0 about as much as before when at home. I still take the tablet to work, but usually just use the Note II except for when needing to look at manuals for the equipment I work on- that extra screen real estate of the tablet makes it easier.

    Will not be replacing my tablet, just the same as my tablet will not be replacing my laptop.
    Note II- for emails, sms, phone calls and short web browsing sessions while on the go.
    Tablet- for reading ebooks/magazines and playing games
    Laptop- for work related activities, requiring long hours of use at any given time and occasionally watching movies.

    I use my note 10.1 as well. I bought it after the note 2. Could have done without it but I enjoy it. This is the first phone I don't mind browsing the Web on but it is still nicer on a 10" tablet. I think a 7" would end up collecting dust.

    I will say this is my tablet. For anything serious, I use my Windows Desktop. My wife has an Archos 101G9 tablet and my son got a Lenovo A1 7" tablet and I've tried to use them and was not very impressed. My GN2 seems to be faster and more responsive overall than either of them. I use my GN2 to look up fast facts and for work with my medical programs I have installed. For any serious Internet research and forum reading, I'm at my desktop.

    I bought an iPad 2 back when I owned my S3 and I hardly use it now that I have my Note 2. Even for watching movies on the go, using the Kindle app, or (on the rare occasion) Skyping, my N2 is my device of choice. And I don't have to worry about charging my N2 in the middle of the day like I have with devices in the past, so I don't have to ease up on using my phone and supplementing with the iPad anymore. Plus my phone is so much easier to transport than a bigger tablet. I only have the iPad now because my toddler loves the learning apps, but she still likes playing with my phone as well. My husband also uses it, but he owns a Skyrocket and has to be careful with its battery being sucked down. So as far as replacing my tablet goes, I think I could sell it and not even really miss it.

    Same here. I still use my Nexus 7 at home and occasionally the Note 2, but have actually found myself going back to the laptop more and more as these mobile devices just can't duplicate the typing efficiency and raw power of a regular computer, not to mention the much larger displays (ex. 15-17"). There are times I just get so frustrated trying to type on the tablet or phone and/or zoom in and out on websites, whereas on the computer it's so easy typing using both hands without having to look at the keyboard (big thanks to my old high school typing class! Home row, home row! ).

    I gave my Ipad 2 to my mom, after buying my Note 2. Ever since it came out of the box, the Ipad never got used.

    Plus, the Note 2 hurts less if you manage to fall asleep while using it. Trust me, the Ipad 2 hurts like hell.

    I'm embarrassed to say I have three devices (iPhone 5, boring; Nexus 4, and my brand new Note 2). I also have an iPad 3 and Nexus 7. Plus a 13" MacBook Air.

    I hardly ever open the Air and N7. The iPhone is used only because my whole family has them and I'm too chicken to give it up. I'm totally enamored with both the N4 and Note 2. I use the iPad daily, however, I think I could probably do without it now.

    And yes, I do have a tech problem.
