After having it now for 3 months the only way they could make this phone better ( S3 ) is make the screen bigger.
If I were you since you are coming from an iPhone, I would wait until the Note 2 is lauched & see both devices side by side & make your decision that way. Most of my friends who are iPhone owners ( none of them are iPhone 5 owners, yet ), see my S3 & think it's huge, so who knows what they will say when they see my Note 2. Hope this helps & again, you can't go wrong w/ either device.
I saw the iPhone 5 in person today and thought it felt so narrow, but I put my iPhone 4 up to it and the width was pretty much identical. For some reason the extra length made it look/feel more narrow. I know this was a little off topic, but for some reason I felt I would share it lol.
Honestly I think the Note series is pretty damn cool. I don't talk much on my phone at all anyways. I like how it is pretty much a small tablet and stuff. I'm just curious to see how the battery life will be. I don't have 4G in my area and I think by disabling that feature it will make the battery last much longer. The biggest thing making me lean towards the Note 2 is it will simply have more processing power. I'm not saying the S3 is slow, but I would just prefer to get whatever the newest thing is at the time. I'll probably try the Note 2 out and if I find that I don't like it I can upgrade again after a year with AT&T since they allow upgrades yearly...at least to me they do.
