That's it....it felt like a toy.
To the OP I don't feel you could go wrong with either phone. I've waited this long I'm just gonna stick it out for the Note 2.
I even took my nail to the back of the iPhone 5 and could see visible lines from my nail. They were not popping out at you, but you could see them none the less. I am going to wait for the Note 2 I am pretty confident. A release next month would be awesome and be much better for my situation, but I believe my best bet is to hold onto my iPhone 4 until the Note 2 comes out and then sell it. I can't be without a smartphone for a month or two. I'm bored enough at work as it is and if I get some basic go phone I might pull my hair out lol.
