    Ok, so making the switch, and I have setup a GMail account, but i currently sync Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Photos, App data, and Docs with my iPhone, what apps do this with Android?

    I am hoping right out of the box the Note II will have all these features? If not how do I Sync all my stuff like I do with iCloud.

    I noticed when I login to Gmail on the Web, Calendar is seperate from Email and Contacts? is there a way to have it all on one page?

    For Photos I use Google+ Instant Upload. You can choose to get unlimited at a smaller size or use Google Drive for full size photos. I use Google Calendar for all of my calendar stuff, so you'd have to do everything on there. Same goes for Contacts, I use Google Contacts. Google Drive is for your documents/files/whatever and you can get that from the Play Store here:

    Want to make things uber-easy for yourself?

    Buy two apps that should cost you just under $5

    SmoothSync for Cloud Calendar

    SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts

    Yes, you could do this all for free. I can explain it from here, but really, after doing it the free way originally, I wish I had known about the free apps.

    Here is the manual way of doing it:

    How to sync iCal with Google Calendar

    How to sync Contacts with Google Contacts

    Here are the instructions on setting up an iCloud iMap account on the Android Samsung Email App (or any email app other than the Gmail app)

    Verify that you are using the correct server credentials:

    IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:

    Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    SSL Required: Yes
    Port: 993
    Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
    SSL Required: Yes
    Port: 587
    SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    Password: Your iCloud password

    Note: If you receive errors using SSL, try using TLS instead.

    Additional Information
    SSL is required for both IMAP and SMTP connection with iCloud. POP is not supported by iCloud.
