    Im curious being a first time android user what are the things you are surprised about on android vs "flaws" or things that "Aren't as good as iPhone"

    Thanks!

    I really love the freedom of it, the ability to do what I want. I've noticed the os' of both android and iPhone are similar. The only "flaw" if that is the lag, definitely not as smooth and polished as iphone, but that doesn't bother me. I've had no problems with the note so far. Never using Android before, I'm not sure what flaws to look for. Although, the market can get frustrating with all the error messages.

    That's annoying not having the badges for notifications, also I haven't figured out how to close open apps. This is driving me crazy. Lol

    Hold the home button until the apps appear and then swipe to the right or left any individual ones or press the X at the bottom right to remove all

    Yeah I think Closing apps and S Voice are the opposite of what iPhone does clicking wise with the home button.

    Also since I use an iPhone as my work phone, and Considering most people I know have IPhones. I'm sure you would be pleased to know that in the stock keyboard there's emojis. Now fully compatible with iPhone. So you can still emoji your friends, if that's your thing 👍👍👍👍👍

    I don't think you can unless you download alerts in the market. I'm still working on that.

    I know with text you can get a notification on lock screen. Goto your texts open settings, scroll down to preview message and click that.

    Oh man... I didn't realize that this option wasn't on the Android... However, i'm really enjoying the phone so far.

    I'm having kind of annoying integration issues. I have an Apple TV, Philips Hue, Macbook Pro, and iPad. I'm not having much luck getting text messages to work as they are all going to my iPad, mac, and even iPhone 5. I turned iMessage off on all of those, and i'm hoping that will solve the issues.

    Without getting text messages properly, it defeats the purpose of a smartphone since most people use it for text. Crossing fingers that turning off iMessages on everything works.

    Yes the Imessage being on will stop you from receiving texts

    This must be an issue because I'm not getting my texts either. They are all being sent to my iphone/I pad too. Let me rephrase that, anyone sending me a text from an apple device. All others are coming through on note.
