RE: Amazing phone, timely non-exclusive US release is a great move by Samsung

Some people care more about how well a smartphone works as, you know, a smartphone over how some prick looks down on him for using a big phone. Unless you have girly hands, it's fine for handling, even with one hand.
I got my Note used, in anticipation of the new one, and it can always be an upgrade for my siblings or anyone else. Why do you care so much about me changing phones?
There's a HUGE number of changes with the Note 2. Larger screen (yet slimmer width), better stylus, larger battery, 3x the speed (from S3 to quad core Exynos), and a gazillion software enhancements. That's like going from a P4 w/ XP to Ivy Bridge w/ W7.
"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
