Wanted to quickly add a welcome and say that I am, and forever will be, a hardcore Apple user. I own an iMac, Macbook Pro and iPad.
I owned the iPhone from #1 all the way up to #4.
When Apple announced iPhone 5 last year I realized I had enough with their tiny screen.
I have a Note II and love it. Have the Note III on preorder.
Great recommendations in this thread thus far.
I have to be honest....
I think in some ways, having all Apple devices, OS X is better than Android. I will definitely return to Apple should their rumored 6" iPhone become a reality next year.
Android is a good operating system in that you can customize to your heart's content. The only problems I see is that there is no good notification system like the iPhone has, and, I have yet to see an email program as good as the one on the iPhone. AquaMail is the closest that I could find in that department.
