    I originally got it because of screen size and I was sick of iOS, but now I am using s pen more and really enjoying having it. Plus the battery life is so much better than that of the iPhone's.

    Yeah, I switched from an iphone 3gs for the extra screen real estate. After about a month into my first Android experience, I must admit that if Apple ever releases a 5.5 inch screen, I'll go back in a heartbeat!

    I got it for the large screen, fast processor, awesome long lasting battery, and for some samsung software features (such as blocking mode and the soon to come multitasking). I never use the S Pen but its nice to have if needed.

    I'm looking to switch but don't really envision using the pen so I wanted to know if there were other people like me.

    Thanks

    The screen size is a major plus for the S Pen. It allows you to write without having to use a somewhat cramped workspace.

    Handwriting is a pleasure on a larger screen.

    Give android more time and you will likely change your mind. Check out different keyboards and other apps that you customize and you'll see what I mean. While I agree that iOS has a better selection of apps, android is so much better than iOS, it just takes some time.

    I originally got it for the specs. Was going to get gs3. Now I love it because of the screen size and extra features like the spen which has been a lifesaver several times. My next upgrade will be a note 3 if it keeps same form factor.

    I saw a rumor today that the new Note 3 is going to have a 6.5" oled screen.

    The note 2 is just barely NOT too big to be an issue for me. 6.5 is pretty damn big.

    That's what I want, with a 1080p screen. Then I'd have 1 device that does it all!

    cmatthews,
    You were right! Longer "learning curve" period for Android + several app issues have been resolved. I don't see myself ever returning to the "walled garden!"

    I obtained the Note2 because of my eyes. I had some eye surgery, Cataracts repaired and high tech lens implants. My vision is 20/15 15/10 depending on light conditions. I needed the new GN2 display (non-pentile).
    Whites, Blacks and Colors are fabulous. I also did it because of 5he feautures on the GN2.

    same here, got hooked in because of the screen size. as a by product, started falling in favor with androidOS. however, i'd switch back to iOS if apple released a big screen phone because this is week 3 for me on the gn2, and it's been one problem after another (or having to locate an app to do something that iOS does natively). i could list all the problems i've experienced over three weeks of getting the gn2 to work right, but that would take too long here.

    You might want to start a thread and ask, you might find you might not need all those apps. I have few apps, about 20 I have downloaded and only 1 is to "make" my phone do something, Home 2. That app is to make the double click of the home button open Google Search like S-Voice does with double click of the home button.

    Yes! That and the stylus. I love to doodle with the s-pen but there's still lots of uncovered features that's yet to be explored!
    I had an iPhone 4 before this, I liked the iPhone 4 because it didn't came with AT&T bloatware. Of course you can root to get rid of bloatware but I really just want to have this w/o bloatware or the ease of deleting bloatware w/o rooting. The bloatware really does annoys me a great deal. Maybe I'll root later when I'm really, really bored or something.
    Overall, I'm satisfied with the note 2. After I fully customized it to my liking then I'll be even more happy with this phone.
