I broke down and got the AT&T Note. My earpiece went out on my other phone so I upped my time table.
Not impressed with fluctuating signal strength (15dBm delta just sitting on my desk at work), though Speed Test app consistently produces minimum 8Mbps DL speeds and above (32Mbps at home and max 58Mbps near work). I'm more concerned about the weak'ish signal and subsequent battery drain.
I still have 27 days to decide...may be going back for GS3. Other than than, I just wish it had a few more display/network settings that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 has.

I dont know why people want the note. I baught it and it was the laggiest phone ever. Ya hd screen and s-pen is AWESOME! but... What good is it when the phone debt function right? It was just a challenge for the phone to bring up the dialer and contacts. Talk about a 10 second wait. And i had both international and at&t ones. It needs to be quad core. Just wait for note 2. By the way gs3 is going to be the phone to beat for the next couple years.
Right now I don't care for any of the phones that are out, or coming out. I purchased the Atrix 4g, love it. Then used my wife's upgrade to get the Galaxy S2 and am sorely disappointed with it.
I really dislike Samsung's style and method of creating phones (And not at all because of plastic bodies, I like that).
I haven't found an HTC phone I could work with due to their consistently bad battery life and then the non-removable one to top it off in the One X.
I dislike big phones. I prefer the 4" size of the Atrix 4G, am ambivalent about 4.3", and am not willing to go larger currently.
I like the design of the Xperia S but I am constantly hearing bad things about it including its non-removable battery.
I will not touch the Note with a ten foot pole, and will probably not get a new phone if the currently known selection is what is available when I'm due for another upgrade, in fact when my wife can get a new phone I'll probably head back to the Atrix and leave this GS2.
