A lot of people are starting to get their phones an I thought we should have a place for everyone to input their first impressions and possibly to discuss the first mods they are making. For me, I returned my Galaxy Note II today and have obviously moved to the N4. I am in no way an authority on Android and phone reviews in general so I won't try and add too much to the conversation. I'll just say that even after 1 day, I am MUCH happier with the N4. While the Note II had a beautiful ginormous display, it wasn't always practical as a mobile phone. At times it felt like there was too much real estate. I like to read texts in landscape mode but trying to use Swype on the Note II in landscape mode was completely impracticable as the swypes were just too long. Sure there is always speech to text but that is usually not perfect and you end up having to swype to fix something anyway. So I would end up having to flip it sideways to read, then flip it upright to text. Annoying. Also, just holding the Note II in a comfortable way provides it's own challenges. I don't have a car dock for either phone so having to hold the Note II while driving and texting, talking, using maps, surfing etc...proves to be more difficult than with the N4 which is much easier to manipulate with one hand. (I know, we aren't supposed to be doing these things while driving and I try not to but in the end, we all do it from time to time). I can now tether to my iPad (don't hate!) without having to root or pay more money which is something I use almost all day, every day. Oh yeah, and I can buy an N7 now for my daughter for Xmas with the savings I got from my Note II. There is also a freak factor to having a phone that big. People see it and inevitably comment that it's the biggest phone they've ever seen and sometimes bring their friends up and ask you to show them your phone. I'm not kidding, I had this phone only a month and that happened 3 different times. If you like that sort of attention then great but it can be a little embarrassing when someone brings a stranger up to you declaring, "show him/her your phone!". One thing I will miss from the Note II is watching the NFL Sunday Ticket mobile app. That was pretty sweet on that screen Speeds have been around 10-15mb down on T-Mo. This phone fly's and everything seems smooth so far. No stutters or hicups yet although I haven't exactly put it through it's paces.
