    Default Other people's Note 2 looks bigger

    I don't know what it is but when I look at other people's Note 2 they appear larger than mine. Especially if their phone display is on. Even ones on at carrier shops look bigger. Strange.

    You have really big hands or low self-esteem? I dunno, get a ruler out and measure it, the dimensions are available all over the net.

    I dunno but I think it's something about looking at another Note 2 "from the outside" so to speak. I'm used to mine and I'm familiar with it. Looking at others it's like they're new and not quite familiar and thus strangely appear bigger. Maybe it is self esteem. I dunno.

    This is probably why the reaction when the Note was introduced was "nobody would lug that huge thing around!" but people who actually bought one are like "what are you talking about, it's not that big". It gets smaller the closer you get to it, must be some general relativistic warping of space-time or something.

    It's the Samsung Push Service effect. Read the reviews and you'll see why. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.sec.spp.push

    Ha, it is only because you aren't holding it in your hand. I was at work today, and some guy walked by (with his Note 2) and I was wondering, "why the hell does his phone looks so big?"

    Right, when I look from the "outside" at others GN2's it's like wow that's huge! But my own phone is what I use as my daily driver and it's just the right size for my mobile life.

    When I see people with Note 2s on a belt clip they look unusually large. Its like having one of those small personal DVD players on your hip.

    The Note 2 in an Otterbox case is huge. That may be part of the illusion.

    Psychological. Everytime I step into a store and see another s4 I think it looks better than mine but mine is as clean and without a scratch.

    Maybe the color? Mine is black and does look smaller than my daughter's white one. Optical illusion?

    I don't recall how it all got started, but think someone entered a similar review as your question on Google Play and thereafter the reviews took on a life of their own.
