    NRj,


    To be honest, I think Iphone 4S is extremely expensive for what it gives me, also S2 is slowly getting outdated. I am extremely impressed by the Note, Have you seen it and used it? You know what I like about it the most, I can connect it to HDTV, USB Pendrive and even a normal USB Mouse. How cool is that.

    Samsung note is very big. more than a handful.

    My dad bought a Galaxy and frankly its a difficult to operate. Apple has patented all the user friendly operations and android has to work around it. Makes you go around in circle. For the shear user experience, iphone beats them all.

    Which one more reason why I dont want to give my money to apple and join the apple zombie bandwagon. Even I like the feel of apple better than Samsung S 2, but NO, I dont want to give those arrogant and over priced idiots, my money.
    The Note, might be a big, But I wear suits, It is easy to carry in my jacket pocket, also It is not that big in my hands.
    Another reason going for the Note, that I intend to use it as a tab as well as my office phone, which I dont have to carry into social gatherings or in casual dress. I have my personal phone,my blackberry bold 2 for that.

    Note is good, almost similar to S2 with added goodies & hardware enhancements. You can't carry it in trouser pockets, but if you usually wear jackets/blazer they it ain't any problem.

    I use S2 and even it can directly connect to pendrive/mouse/keyboard with USB OTG. Android ftw!

    Nrj,


    My friends carry the note quiet easily in their trouser pockets, it doesnt overflow out of the pocket, but neither does it give space for any more items .

    My vote goes for the Galaxy Note, the only negative is the battery. It barely lasts a day.

    Even though I have a few Apple products my gripe is that everything is centered around the Itunes store, and they decide what you can get. And the age old war between Apple and Adobe, it is very frustrating.

    Take my Word - Any latest Android phone will do you a favor!

    HTC or Samsung S2 are the the best in the market!

    imo Note is too large, more like a mini tablet. Get the S2 or the Nexus Prime (when it's available)

    But being a mini tablet, gives you advantage of having a tablet which you can never fit in anywhere, but the samsung note is compatible. I can read my documents as well as browse the interent, heck even watch movies, or even connect it to my JVC DVD Car entertainment system. Also when I talk to other people for my business dealings, I can easily show them my documents, and it will be large enough to read it. Much the size of a newspaper font and paragraph structure.

    Nobody is going to buy a Nokia anymore, they have messed it up so much in the last 4 years.

    Yup, they missed the smartphone bus. The company that was always a step ahead a few years back is not many steps behind the rest.

    wait a couple of months and buy the upcoming htc edge...it has quadcore processor.

    but if you cant wait then take a pick from samsung s2, galaxy nexus or htc sensation xe. iphone is full of shit..you'd be an idiot to buy it.
