    For the last several years, I don't know how how much money I've wasted. When "newer" phone comes out, I must have it. After owing my current Note 2 for a few months, I have lost this obsession. The old me would be "upgrading" to the Galayx S4 by now. Or be in the process of selling the Note 2 in advance of the pending arrival of the Note 3. Now I' just don't care anymore. The Note 2 feels like a phone that I can keep for another two or three years.

    I don't know if this is good or bad....

    I hear ya! The only reason I am considering an upgrade is I'm craving a smaller device. Whether I do it or not is yet to be seen. I got my Note II in January and I usually would have switched by now.

    I used to think the same way and it was because of the Note 2 as well. But I have since moved on. The obsession is hard to break especially when you are visiting tech sites and participating in forum discussions about smartphones. You will continually be intrigued by other services and what you think they may offer you. I love my Nexus 4 but it is hard to not flip it for something newer and shinier. If you can abstain, you ate a lot better than me.

    I would agree completely if the Note 2 had 32 or 64 GB of flash built in. What with apps, and data that needs to be internal, I am always sitting with around 1GB free.

    I am sure I will enjoy all the upgrades in the Note 3, but all I really care about is more internal storage.

    And then I could totally see myself sticking with the Note 3 for at least a couple of years.

    I'm intrigued by the always-on voice feature of the Moto X which apparently is standard on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 found on the just-announced LG G2, and apparently will be on the Note 3. If the Note 3 provides similar "awareness" and always-on voice features, I will be very tempted to sell my Note 2 for the Note 3.

    I felt the same way after a few months on the Note2, but the size got the better of me. I made the switch to the s4 and the size is prefect. I really wish I had some of the money back that I spent on smart phones over the lady several years.

    That happened to me too! The only difference is I'm holding out for the Droid Maxx because I'm not too happy with the lower end battery of the S4. If Samsung out a 3300 mah battery then I'd be all over the S4.

    I noticed since I got my new note, I do not need to frequent forums looking for help or apps like when I had a Blackberry Bold and a Playbook. My Note 2 replaces both of these just fine. I guess it is Android for ever from now on?

    Blackberry was tough. I loved the devices, but there was just too much they couldn't do or do well.

    I love the note 2... I do.... I just am not sure that i want to continue odn with this size... For the first 6mo i thought it was fine.. But lately ive been wishing for a more manageable in the hand phone.. With a large screen.. Lg G2.. On my radar unless the note 3 has something to change the game.. Full Hd screen and more hand gestures won't do it... To keep me dealing with the size.. Too add idk about a 3yrd year with the same touchwiz.. Again I love this phone.. It's been the best.. In the back of my mind im saying.... New phone? To do what?

    At the end of the day, if you love your Note II the only device that can replace it is the Note III. It's the same effect with the iPhone.

    I replaced my Note 2 with an S4 and Note 8.0. I'm very glad I did but I realize some folks prefer to just have one device.

    The main reason why I want the note 3 would be because of Advanced wireless services. That should hopefully provide better data speeds in peak load areas and times

    Yeah same Note 2 is the best phone I have ever had. Was a little skeptical at first in having such a big phone. But after a few days of watching my Dish tv on the 5.5 screen cleared that up. Just last week I was helping a friend with their
    Droid X2 and as I was holding it I thought how did I ever get by with such a small phone. And if the JB 4.3 comes through we should get most of the cool software features that the GS4 has and that the GS3 probably will have.

    Well, given that my wife will not let my buy a motorcycle (yet) I'm gonna enjoy as much of this technology as I possibly can. If the Note 3 looks yummier than my S4/Note 8.0 combo I'm going for it.

    Would you really want to replace your S4 and Note 8 with one device? I will admit that the Note 3 seems awesome, but there will be some tradeoffs to combine your needs into one device.

    I came from the Note 2 to my
    current Dynamic Duo. The Note 3 would have to be exceedingly awesome to carry me until I could add the new revamped Asus Transformer Infinity to the miix. We shall see in a couple of weeks I hope.

    I had a Note 2 and it was a nice piece of tech, but I found that it was too big for some things and too small for others. I sold the Note 2 and with the cash bought a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 7. That combination was awesome. I used the N4 (that's a comfortable size for a phone) when I was out and about and then when I got home, I used the N7 for all of my movies, books, and gaming. It was the best of both worlds. I don't think that I could give such a combination up for one device that will not really meet my expectations as a phone or a multimedia device. For now, I have the iPhone 5 and iPad 4 and the two are working awesome for me.

    Yeah. Having just one device is a bit of a compromise. Another aspect I really enjoy about having both a phone and a tablet instead of just a phablet is that if one's battery dies and is charging I have the other.

    Again, the Note 3 would have to be really awesome...but I could always get a Nexus 7 too in another month. Toys. I love toys.

    Completely understand not wanting to carry multiple devices. When I'm in the house I carry both around...can't help it. ...but when I go out I only carry my phone. ...mostly. ...but the Note 8.0's Otterbox arrives today so that may change.

    And if you are willing to make those compromises then the Galaxy Note series is a great option.
