    I waited and waited to upgrade from my original galaxy fascinate. I think it all worked out for the best in the end.

    When do you guys think the S4 will come out?
    My friend is hoping for around April so he can upgrade from his S3. LOL

    But if you are always waiting for something better you will never get anything.
    I've been hearing this for over 20 years ... and it's still true!

    No I am planning on getting the Note 2 but the question is, is it worth waiting for the S4?

    So you decide to wait for the S4, right? When that is released the rumors of the Note3 are flying, along with a new 5" quad core Razr Maxx HD, DNA2, etc. . . .

    If you're ready for a new device now then go for it. In this crazy world of tech you simply cannot wait until the next rumored device is out and stay sane. The day after the iPhone 5 was released I saw stuff on the web about iPhone 5s. There are already leaked photos of it floating out there.

    Since May of 2010 I have had the following (not in order): iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S (twice), Droid Charge, Galaxy S3, Droid Razr Maxx HD, iPad 2, iPad 3, and now the Note 2. I still have my last 4S and my iPad 3. So yes, I am stuck between the two platforms like a lot of others.

    In the two days I have had the N2 I have been thoroughly impressed with the many features of the device. A few things that annoyed me on the GS3 seem to be gone, mainly BT issues and S-voice issues. The screen is too big and that's a good thing for me. I have already started getting used to it. It fits well in my hand while on a call and I can hold it in one hand comfortably while working with it. I have noticed that I have accidentally activated an app on the outside row due to the thin bezel when I am holding it. I think this will stop once I get my case.

    So you think I should pull the trigger on the galaxy note 2 now? I am not interested in the Note 3 as I think any bigger is too big.

    Hi guys. I know there is another thread very similar to this one but I have different questions. So I have been interested in the Note 2
    $100 is pretty good price to get rid phone. Do it this is the best phone on the market today. There might be better in the future but this form factor is going to stay for some time. The Pen adds a dimension that really makes it a real productivity to it.
    I'm really digging my note so far I have no complaints it's a great phone.


    Really? Pretty sure if you follow my posts around (and you have, I've seen it) then you'll know that your statement is false.
    Yeah I agree you have written some of the best and most informative post very technical yet easy to understand.... But beating your chest isn't winning you any points jk

    I wouldn't even hesitate. I bought an iPad 3 4g this summer and kept it for 6 weeks. I had to sell it because I just found iOS to be blah. Android has so much more capabilities. It really is the only system if you are looking for customization options. I tried out WP8 but it isn't to the point where I feel it is competitive.

    I am starting to feel similar about iOS, but what I use my phone for and what I use my tablet for are two different things. I use my iPad mini for work. Taking attendance and recording grades in Teacher Kit, using Pages and Keynote to do lessons and lesson plans. For those tasks I don't need customization, I need it to "just work" (sorry for throwing an Apple slogan in an Android forum). My phone, however is used for none of those, and I wish I could have more customization (hence my desire to get a Note 2). I need my tablet to "just work" and would like my phone to be "the next big thing."

    My friend got a Nexus 7, however, and absolutely loves it so for him that's the better tablet.

    To answer the original question: I too am looking to trade my iPhone 5 for a Note 2 so I say go for it. I'm as Apple as they come and I still drool at the sight of a Note 2.

    I use my tablet to access my online classes. This could not be accomplished on the iPad. My tablet is strictly for school and reading. It only did one of those tasks efficiently.

    And they contradict each other....just sayin....we had just as many rumors with the S3, and guess what? Most were wrong.

    That being said, DroidXcon is awesome.
    Just razzing ya lol. Shoulda put sarcastic face in there. You all do pretty decent, some better than others, but overall, this site is really awesome, and the mods, advisors, and users make it so, along with a great staff. Okay, enough cheeze.....back to normal!

    Good point. I can't access my online classes from my iPad. I use my MacBook for that though. Does your online class use Blackboard Learn?

    I just looked at the antutu benches and the note 2 is at the top of the heap for overall processing power, is there any synthetic benchmarks that are on both the app and play stores?
