    I have had the S3 for about 6 months now but have an upgrade available. What are the impressions from those of you that have upgraded from the S3 to the Note 2? Are you super happy with the new phone, is it worth the $ to upgrade??

    Any and all opinions appreciated.

    I didn't have the s3 so..... but if you're looking for a 5.5 in screen, an S-Pen, a quad-core processor, stupendous battery life, multi-window.....this is the device for you:D

    I exchanged my S3 for it on the last day of my 14 day exchange period. I wasn't sure it was a good idea, but I have no regrets. I liked the S3, I love the N2.

    I've had the Slll since it dropped as well. Lol, I couldn't pass up the GNll either. I love both devices, but the slll is for sure neglected. In my opinion, it's worth the extra $$ for the upgrade. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. :D

    Purchased the S3 on launch and while I loved the phone, I find the note 2 so much more fun and business friendly.

    I'll agree. The S3 is a great phone but if the size increase is either not an issue or a bonus then the N2 wins hands down. The processor is much faster but more battery efficient. It has double the RAM. The larger screen consumes a little more battery but the battery is bigger so I still often go 2 days between charges.

    The S-Pen is just fantastic.

    I switched and love the note 2. Reception on verizon is MUCH better with the note 2. Great screen. Battery lasts for two days of moderate use. Did I mention the screen?....it is amazing !
