Default Galaxy Note, or Galaxy 3?

I'm staring at my new Galaxy Note that my wife bought me..... and while I like it , it seems like I'll hate its size eventually. I'm trying to find out where to go from here. Love my current phone, HTC Evo, but need to upgrade to something Note or G3 comparable. Help!!???

Not me. I LOVE my Note. The only issue I have with it is my tendency to drop it, which has messed up my reception a little.

One thing worth mentioning about the Note 2 and it's better specs, it is powering a huge screen which will probably make it a little slower than the S3.

When I was due for an upgrade I had to choose between a Note and a One X, I chose the latter and although I am glad I do quite like the Note.. I have 2 mates that have one and they swear by it and both have said they'll never go back to a smaller screen again... this seems to be a general consensus among Note fans so give it a little time as you may end up loving it.

Yes I believe at some point the displays have gotten too large.

Lol. I did use to think the Note screens were too big but I eventually got used to seeing it here (used by a lot of Korean students)

Yea the note 2 coming soon with a quadcore cpu. I own a galaxy s 3 and i love the size. I just think the note is overkill on its size. Im also getting the galaxy note 10.1 tablet.

Well I read stuff in bed and my ipad is killing me in terms of weight. I sometimes read on my S3 but 4.8" screen is getting smaller each day.

If the Note 2 comes to Verizon and I have the cash to buy it outright, I'll be swapping my Galaxy Nexus for it for sure. Love the specs and the size (a friend has a Note 1 so I've been able to play with it a bit). Hoping development for it will be great as well.
