Not to derail the thread but can I ask why people insist on comparing the Note and DNA?
The DNA is exactly the same width as the S3 and less than 4mm taller. Samsung, Sony, and LG have all announced 5in 1080p screens in the pipeline, and I can't imagine every one will be compared to the Note simply because some 5in screen size has now been met. JMO but the software, and the SPen are what make the Note what it is, not just the big screen.
Is it that the DNA was the first?
