Apart from not wanting a smaller screen (using my old Galaxy S just to get files off of it confirms that I couldn't go back to a smaller screen), I actually use the s Pen a lot more than I thought I would.

I use it often, every day, for taking notes, playing games, cropping photos etc. Doing these things with a finger would be a lot less accurate.
I find it a lot quicker to take handwritten notes in Freenote, than typed text notes using an onscreen keyboard.

I'll be waiting for the note 2, hard to go back to a smaller screen. And I kinda want the pen.

The notes ruined other phones for me. I'll be waiting for the note 2 or if there's a better 5"+ phone then I may get that as long as it has decent development.

I've been considering a move to a smaller phone, but I'll skip at least one generation. Would have gone for the Nexus, but I wanted a uSDHC slot.
Current devices: Moto G
Past devices: iPhone 5, HTC 8X, Samsung Galaxy Nexus (i9250), Samsung Galaxy Note (N7000), iPhone 3GS

But I know that it will be very hard to use a samller screen once you have owned this phone.
Apple won't create a 5'' phone.

But, yeah, you are right, it would be very difficult to switch to a smaller phone now. I love the Note!

I can't wait until the official ICS release comes out! I'm on ICS Stunner now and I love the S-pen, but it is rather pointless right now. It's just a stylus. But, then again, it will never work fully without the Samsung framework.


If you are helped by someone, it is only the right thing to hit the "Thanks" button.

I won't be picking up an SIII. There is no way I will go down in screen size. I don't care how many cores it has.

Quad core core ain't got the programing behind it yet asfaik. I can't see any other benefits.

I don't want smaller screen. Anything below 5" is not good enough now... so i don't know what samsung would have to pack into the galaxy s 3 to convince me - and no, i won't replace 5,3" screen with quad core cpu i wont even utilize in half.

I'm torn, I love the screen on the note, but could be tempted by a superior camera and more efficient processor of the s3 . Note 2 won't be here took October/November as they usually leave a year between releases. And they won't outspec the sgs3 as they won't want to impact on the sales of the flagship s3.
I'll prob get an s3 and play with it but doubt I'll keep it more then a month
