I had this discussion in the Note Thread - but it really didn't go anywhere - so - let's see what happens here: Here's the deal - not a huge HTC fan (had the TBolt - and was the primary reason I got the SIII). Between the 2 manufactures - IMHO - there is no comparison in build quality - HTC wins by a landslide. I'm actually really enjoying the SGIII - except (I can live with the build quality) is that the radio quality isn't up to what I really need (it pretty much is all over the place at work). There's no question - the lack of expandable memory, and no replacement battery are 2 strikes against the DNA. I've seen a couple reviews (one here) that are very positive about the radios in Philly) where I work. Does anyone know how the radios in the Note 2 stack up compared to the S3?? I actually went out and got something to check the network - so far - it's been SOLID LTE on my S3. The comment was regarding the DNA not dropping LTE.I'll be able to confirm (or not) my issue with the S3 dropping when I go back to work on Tuesday!! Here's the reason I wanted to see a comparison of the S3 vs the Note 2 - 3 days at home - solid (almost 100%) 4G. 1 day @ work (and home - and travel time) LTE 47.6%, 1xRTT 26.7%, EVDO 3.3%, EHRPD (whatever that is) 20.8% If I upgrade - it's going to be a tough sell on the SO - or maybe a divorce - but - I seriously doubt THAT!!
