    The online reviews rate the Note 2 higher. The S4 is, on paper, awesome. What would you guys do in my situation? Go for the Note 2 or S4?

    I have owned both and loved the Note 2 but I must say the S4 has been awesome and is my only android phone at the moment. The size and features are all in the sweet spot. Unless the spen is a big deal for your I think the S4 is an all around more useful device.

    In the position,I went to Walmart and they had the S4 16 GB for $168.00, and Note 2 for like 198.00,so I don't know which one to get myself but I leaning toward the S4. I know that the both got good resell value so if you don't like it,u can sell it and get your put that money towards something else.

    If you don't want the pen, the only reason to go with the note is battery.

    Note 2. S4 had wifi connectivity issues. Basically they are the same phones. A lil different specs. S pen, no s pen, large screen, a bit smaller. I think the note 2 has better battery life over the s4. Both are great choices.

    from what ever phone I feel like using today

    I had the same issue yesterday. Had to decide between the S4, Note 2, and HTC One. I went with the Note 2. Because of the screen size, battery life, s-pen, and the fact that I wanted an all in one device. Didn't want to have to use a tablet.

    It all depends on how are you going to use the device. Which one fits better on the daily activities in your life, etc.

    Also which size is more comfortable for you and if you want the newest or oldest of the two.

    I can't tell you which one is better for you, because obviously I'm not you. But I can tell you which one is better for me all around: See my signature...

    The Note 2 is already quite a old device and in two months will be replaced by the note 3. The S4 is the perfect balance of overall size, battery life and screen size. If you truly want the note 2 then I suggest waiting for the note 3 otherwise the S4 is the better device.

    I had the Note AND Note 2 for a year then switched to the S4.
    Prefer the S4 simply because I got tired of maneuvering the size of the Note(s) in my pockets, driving, dress clothes, etc.
    S4 has a decent size screen and runs great...especially with the lastest update.

    Both phones are very nice however.

    EDIT: Oops, didn't realize you went with the Note 2...enjoy it...it's awesome and the pen is quite handy for quick notes, drafting thoughts, etc. fun
