    Just came across this thread and I am also coming from an iPhone 4. Tomorrow I'm planning on picking up the Note 2 and switching back to Android. I had the nexus one and still have it but Gingerbread got old and I decided to try something new and went iPhone. After a couple of years, it's boring as hell now. Yes it works fine but I dread picking up the phone now daily. Sad I know, it was such a nice polished premium phone compare to the nexus one at the time.

    I tried a Nokia 610 to see what windows phone was about but omg that is simpler than iOS. Not for me. After watching YouTube videos of the note 2, I can't imagine not switching to this phone. I'm getting older too so the larger screen will be a bonus for the eyes.

    Does anyone use this for navigation and are there car accessories? I can't find any. I use the iPhone and waze for navigation but miss google maps when I used the nexus one years ago.

    2 years changes everything. I don't like iOS now because it treats you like a ret^rd.

    I currently have a 4s and would LOVE to get this phone. Unfortunately I don't have an upgrade available for quite some time. I've been keeping an eye on Craigslist but most people are wanting almost full retail price. Also there just aren't a ton of them out there right now. I guess people just like these phones too much!

    I agree on Craigslist they sell for quite a bit, even locked carrier models. Two years a lot has changed and I'm looking forward to an upgrade soon.

    After owning 3 different iPhones, I'm thinking about making the switch. My current phone is the 4S.
    1. Is it safe to assume that any apps purchased for IOS will need to be either abandoned or re-purchased?
    2. Are there any critical things (features) that I'm giving up if I make the move from iPhone 4S to Galaxy Note II?
    (I don't one to have one of those moments where you make the switch, get everything setup then all of a sudden it hits you... I can't do xyz or I'm missing xyz, I forgot to take that into consideration).

    I really like the screen on the Note II, large, bright and sharp.
    I recently purchased a 7 inch Android Tablet, that was my 1st android device... a part of me says having a Note II and a 7 inch table is sort of redundant! Not wanting to spend money needlessly. I wonder now if one owns the Note II wheather a 9-10 inch tablet then makes more sense.

    Yes there are serious things you'll give up, I just made that switch kinda regretting it. Virus protection bein huge on the list! At least $30 a month for that second is battery life.....IT SUX BEYOND BELIEF!! While sitting on my nightstand not bein used battery went from 100% to almost dead in a matter of a few hrs. Think long and hard before u switch!
