I switched from an iPhone 4 to the Note about six weeks ago I think. I couldn't go back. I love the screen size the most, but having an android phone is like having a jail broken iPhone - battery life isn't quite as good, some things don't work quite as smoothly or perfectly, but in the end you can do SO MUCH more with it that's its absolutely worth it.

Edit: occasionally there would be lag when I first got my Note, but that was from the Power Save mode that must have been running by default. My battery life is only a bit worse than my iPhone 4 ran on ios 5... battery like was great on ios 4 but it went downhill some after 5 came out.

I'm embarrassed to say that I used an iphone 3g jailbroken on Tmobile the past 3 1/2 years. Unlock & JB after unlock & JB rendered my iphone useless. It sometimes would get stuck for like 4 min plus I was on edge speeds too.

I thought I was cool being one of the few using a jailbroken device and bragging how I could do whatever on my phone and get tons of stuff free.

Then I came across the note. It totally blew me away. I cancelled my contract and got one. I'm rocking a white Gnote, rooted, flashed Saurom and OC to 1.836ghz.

I could never go back to an iphone. They seem so small and outdated to me now.

My favorite thing is showing all of my friends with iPhones that their whole phone fits on just the screen of mine with room to spare. Haha.

Though it's not iPhone, I am showing ppl my HTC Aria next to the Note. It's about the smallest sized phone in dimensions with a 3.2 in screen. To me it's a HUGE step up!

It is pocket friendly to me. I dont know what kind of jeans you wear it actually fits good in my skinny jeans. The phone is thin so there arent bulges unless u have a bulky case. The main reason why the Note isnt flying off the shelves is because people are scared of change. Especially when they first see the Note in person. At first...its a bit overwhelming..but after a few days...you're hooked!
