    I've always been a big fan of the note, and it's size even as an Apple user. However by the time I had an upgrade available, the SIII debuted, and won me over. Now that the Note II has been announced I'm considering(Not guaranteed) selling my SIII for it. I love the SIII, and it does everything I want it to, but the Galaxy Note 2 just seems so awesome. Is there anyone else out there with an SIII that's considering the Note II, just curious. Sorry if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find any threads here.

    If it would've came out today or before for Sprint. But I'm well pass my 30 days for a return so I doubt it.

    Hardware wise it sounds great but for me it is way to large to use as a phone. I refuse to wear my phone in a holster on my belt and the note is a no go for anything short of cargo pants. I love gadgets but when the practicality becomes a factor i have to pass. My s3 is pushing the limits of what is acceptable to me as it is. If it had squared off corners or was thicker i probably would not be using one now. But if you don't mind the cellphone fanny pack or you happen to be Bigfoot's live child I say go for it.

    I will keep my GS3, but if it comes to verizon. I will sell my wife's GS3 and get her a Note2 since she wanted the original Note so bad.

    If it comes to Sprint I would seriously consider it! I read my school text books on my phone so the larger display would be great for that! I also watch movies and that would just be fantabulous!!

    Trading "up," not sure if that's right, but no. While the note 2 looks awesome, it is more of a phablet. The second is about as big as a piece of hardware is want I'm my pocket or in my hand for one handed operating. Think I am just getting a Tablet instead. I am sure there is a hungry market for those stylus yielding beast!

    • extra bit of screen real estate which i don't need.
    • stylus which i don't care for
    • extra 0.2Ghz on the processor, not significant


    besides, the note II has been redesigned to look so much like the S3 with a bigger screen. i think i'll just stay with the original; GSIII

    Good point, I'm still trying to weight the pros, and cons here. I have an iPad w/LTE that I use quite frequently, and my SIII. Just really attracted to the size of the note, but agreed, the size might be too big for regular everyday use. Guess I'll wait, and see if it comes to AT&T first like the original note, and go from there.

    If I could have both I would but if I could only have one it would be the S3.

    Why not get a nexus 7 and just use the portable hotspot option on your S3? Works perfectly for me.

    When/if it comes to Sprint, absolutely. It might not be the upgrade from the original Note that some people were hoping for, but for those of us who were never able to get it? It will be fantastic.

    It's a nice device and great hardware, but for me it's a bit too big to be an everyday phone. I think I'll wait until the Galaxy S4

    +1 too big for my taste. I'm actually shocked the phone sold well enough for them to make a second run with them.

    Nah the s3 already has everything I need SW wise and as for the HW, I can just overclock it to 1.6 ghz and buy an extended battery(which I didn't because the battery life is great for my usage) anyway, its a win win situation for you because whatever you decide on, you're still getting a good phone

    I'm lucky because when my contract expires, its about the same time the Galaxy s5 hits stores and carriers(I got mine late as it was hard to secure one due to demand)

    Your are greatly mistaken if you think its only has .2ghz more speed. This thing is running the quadcore exynos processor. If this thing is LTE compatible, along with the 2 gigs of ram, this phone's performance would wipe the floor with ours esp in the GPU department.

    Make no mistake, while the dual core S4 chip is fast in its own right, the u.s. models only got it because we settled on it because it was the only modern chipset that was compatible with LTE. The international version is no doubt still the faster smoother phone even though we got an additional 1 gig of ram to compensate for getting the inferior chip.

    Question about this, will the Note 2 North American version have the same limitation with regards to chipset + LTE? How were they able to incorporate this into the Note 2 the same year as the S3 was released?

    Nah I'm happy with my S3 the note is just to big for my taste. But whoever gets it I'm happy for you all. Enjoy the power of android and the different variations that we have a choice to buy.
