    Picked up my Note 2 this afternoon. Transitioning from the S3. S3 has been/is likely the best phone I've had. Now I probably said that same thing years ago when moving from a StarTAC to an early generation Windows phone, and before that from a brick to the StarTAC. But in today's smartphone world, I've been happy with the S3 considering the alternatives and my requirements.

    Like others have noted here, I need the bigger screen size to help the eyes. The S Pen and its related software ecosystem are a bonus, and something I've missed from the older Windows phones that had them.

    While I was waiting to get the account stuff completed at the store, one of the staff was comparing the S3 to an S4 demo unit. I didn't have long to look, but was not obvious which phone was which until the staff said "that's an S4". Understand that some form factor tweaking and design changes have enabled Samsung to get a larger screen in the S4 compared to the S3. Now I look at my S3 and Note II side by side, and the screen size difference is noticeable. Perhaps obvious statement knowing the specs for both phones, but noting to help illustrate that the screen size difference between the S3 and S4 will be relatively minor.

    The note 2 is great. You won't be disappointed. If you're a heavy user, get a back up battery. My note 2 drains a battery quickly.

    The Note 2 was an awesome choice from a iphone. Yeah the iphone is simple and fun... but this note 2 with its power and battery life can't compare. Iphone since day one. . And now using Samsung N2. No jail break needed to change appearance and font

    Here's my take since I am in a similar situation. I had the iphone 5 and was pretty happy with it for a while. I've been looking longingly at the N2 because of it's huge screen and pen interface, but wasn't sure if I should get it or the G4. I waited until the reviews of the G4 hit the web and concluded that it had nothing I really needed that wasn't already on the bigger, pen-enabled N2. So I bought the N2 and am happy with my decision.
    I think at this point in the game the current phones are more than adequate. Or as I keep hearing it - good enough is good enough.
