When I got this phone last week I was worried that it's size would be a major problem. I picked up my iphone 4s today and can't believe how small it is. Anyone who thinks this phone is too big needs to use it for a week before making that decision. You will soon learn just how small the others are. Lol

I bought the Note 2 after owning an iPhone 4. I'm on day 4 today. There's a learning curve but I think I'll have it under control in a couple of more days. So far I like what this phone can do and I don't see using the 14 day exchage policy. The size took getting used to but I'm over that now and can appreciate the large screen.

It took me less than 2 hours to get used to the screen size. I turned my razr on to see how my home screen was setup and everything looked so tiny. I was like wow this thing is small. How did I deal with this for so long?

I am on week 2 with my note. I love it. My son now has my 4s and the other day he asked me to show him how to do something on it and I held my old phone for the 1st time in 2 weeks and I was shocked at how much smaller it now felt in my hand. I don't know if I can ever go back to a small phone like that again, EVER!

IMO, the iPhone is so small as to be laughable. seriously, I dont really understand why it is so popular. anything smaller than about 4.8", for me, is just unnecessarily SMALL.

Dave I totally agree with you I got my note on xmas day and coming from an iphone 4 this phone/screen feels perfect I wouldn't want it bigger I think it is so right but the iphone screen is laughable and so is the iphone 5 screen size.

I'm moving from an iP4 in a little over a month and posts like this are very encouraging. I went to Verizon the other day to play with one and that's when I fell in love and decided that I would be willing to adjust to the size. :D

[Tip] Biggest thing when switching from iphone to b Android is to remember to discontinue Imessage. Trying to undo it after the device has been deactivated can be challenging to say the least [/Tip]

It is popular because of user experience. That what people like on the iPhone. iPhone made that impression in user experience. Android is big on diversity and customization. People on the iPhone don't care about that size of the phone, just the user experience that they have a fond memory of.

Everyone that asks me about my phone I always tell them, once you start using the 5.5" screen and get used to it you CANNOT EVER go back to a phone below 5.5". In fact, I am totally amped to see the 1920x1080 6.3" note 3 screen, lets just hope they keep it an RGB matrix and not a crappy pentile matrix, everytime samsung ups the resolution they go back down to pentile, first pentile 480x320 then pentile 800x480 then RGB 800x480 but then pentile 1280x720 then rgb 1280x720, If history tells us anything then resolution bump will start as pentile :( then the next version will be rgb :). If Samsung can heavily shrink the bezel they can do it without adding to much width and length but some will have to be added, which is OK as I had no problem gripping even the wider note 1.

This phone is a beast. I just got the gs3 not to long ago but I had to have this phone so I used Christmas money from the girl with my money on top to buy it full retail. Man the battery life alone is worth it. No need for a charger at all. Not even mentioning all the features it has. I love it.

And 1080p is useless on a screen this small. Most tv manufacturers don't make 1080p under a 37" because the human eye has trouble telling the difference on small screens

How would you put on a case if there was not much bezel?
