I thought I saw somewhere that Verzion is offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.... If they are, I can tell you that would be the phone I'd have.. Given that the $$ allowed it. I went with an s3 just because the $$ was not there to go with the Note2 in my case, but had I been able to spend the money, the Note2 would be in my hands.
That being said, even though everyone already has S3's, I gotta say I really do love this phone.
