I used almost 1.2GB in the first few days. I think a lot of that was syncing a lot of email/contacts/calendars, downloading all my apps, and running speed tests. After that my usage dropped to more reasonable levels that I'm used to, probably a rate of 1-2GB per month.

Note to self - next time setting up a new phone, use Wifi for all the big stuff.

Coming from an iPhone 4 no I can't go back. This phone has ruined me for all others.

Default Bigger the better!

So im assuming you made this post so a number of people would agree with you and say YEAH ITS TOO BIG EW... Im sorry but most users to post on xda are aware of the size BEFORE they order it. Its not like you order it than cross your fingers hoping you get a small one haha. When i return something its usually because of something i was not expecting (like the atrocious pentile display when i recieved my droid bionic) Something like that is understandable because motorola did not write anywhere in the specifications sheet that it would look like TERRIBLE! To be honest if i was a phone company i would refuse that return because that is just such an invalid argument, they list the size of the freaking thing EVERYWHERE. Ever heard of buyer beware?

I'm pretty sure your logic for returning the bionic is just as flawed. It was definitely announced before the bionic was released that it would have a pentile display. And it was your fault for not checking it out in person before buying it. Also, the Note has a pentile screen, so what gives? Just like Motorola didn't write anywhere that it would look terrible in your opinion, Samsung also doesn't say it's too big for somebody's opinion. Same logic. So before you go and make one of those posts to rip on somebody, take a look at what you yourself have to say.

Honestly I wish the display was a bit larger. When I bought the Note I wanted to fill the gap between a phone and a tablet, and for the purpose the I717 has completely succeeded. I have abnormally small hands and I don't have a problem with the size. I find myself using two hands to type things out but I can use one hand if needed. I honestly wish the Note was just a bit bigger.

I have had MAAAANY phones just like most of you all probably have. But I could never keep one no matter if it had ICS or whatever else was the selling point for the particular device or no matter how many roms tweaks mods pixels or whatever else, I would get bored with it in about two weeks (and thats if I liked the phone!) Then of course I got the Gnote because its the new hotness and was thrown off a little bit of how big it was HOWEVER that wore off in about week and now I realize why I never like any other phone...THE SIZE!!! This is why I will never get another phone that is any less than 5" ever again. Yea I had a Dell Streak 5 but that phone was complete **** quality (stupid battery door design!) This phone is a damn keeper for real and the only phone ill give it up for is a new Gnote lol get this phone and give it some time and GET A SCREEN PROTECTOR!

I actually returned the Note after using it for 1 week. I decided to get a regular S2 instead. I did like the Note though. My biggest problem was battery life and reception. I would get about 13 hours out of it with about 2 hours of screen time. To me that was just way to little, my Cappy would get 3 hours of screen at least.

Also LTE was hit or miss for me, which drove me nuts.
The Note felt very laggy and I did even try OC

I will be back in about a year because i am already missing that beautiful screen.
