    I know, already been and obsessed over it in store. The nexus news that's just come out has me holding off until I see what happens.

    If it turns out to be shit I'll be picking this up on three immediately.

    Big up to Three too, I've been downloading loads of apps now I've got decent internal space and streaming extreme quality through Spotify and there's been no hiccups.

    As you've used the phone you know what it's like, but coming from a small Chinese budget Android phone the difference in quality is crazy. Can see it lasting me for a long time as the screen (and battery) are both monsters!

    Don't buy the official flip case for it. Thing is even cheaper made than the phone! Mine has completely fallen apart and did nothing to protect my phone when it had a wee stumble. I've recently taken it off and put the original back on and I love the phone (original Note) all over again.

    That looks an awesome bit of kit. Def a contender for when I can upgrade in 6 months!

    I got 50GB dropbox for mine. It even adds it on to your account if you already have one making your total space even higher!

    I still really want to get a case for it but can't decide whether to get one that has a stand with it too. I prefer the pouch style ones as it protects it well and you remove it whilst in use. Not too keen on covers/cases that are permanantly on as they ruin the look of the design which is something i like.

    I'm so used to it now and it's great. I used my girlfriends iPhone yesterday and hated how small everything felt haha. So frustrating using a small screen after using this beast for a few days.

    @crashVoodoo I absolutely love this phone, I want to marry it. The stock experience is decent too (just ignore the Samsung Account stuff, though the remote thing sounds decent), and the update mentioned gives you the multi-tasking stuff - dunno if they'll keep updating it, or yeah you can just root.

    Omg this phone is just amazing. Ive been convincing myself that the nexus s was fine but it wasnt. Its shit!
    Shit shit shit!

    Everything on this is better and this multiwindow multitasking is just the bollocks.

    something else i've noticed, or more appropriately haven't, is touchwiz. so far it hasn't bothered me at all.

    i really can't get over how quick this is. tried the nfc -> wifi direct of a 300mb video last night. was transferred in under 15 seconds.

    i had a quick play on my friends note 2 and i did notice that the default touchwiz was a lot wizzier than anything i've had on my note 1, even straight ICS.

    but then i haven't got jellybean on mine yet.

    still, looking at it didn't really make me want to upgrade this time round, there isn't really anything it does that i particularly am missing, apart from apt-x

    I can imagine there really isnt much difference for you and if I had the original note I wouldn't have upgraded either. Still it is a massive bump up from my nexus s.

    This s-pen is great for scumm games and world of goo is so much easier too.

    The only real issue ive had so far is finding accessories for it on amazon or ebay as hardly anything has a review. I need a decent in-car mount as the one I have doesnt hold it horizontally.

    The S Beam / Wi-Fi Direct / NFC stuff is bloody quick! I annoyed the guy next to me at work in to getting a Note 2 and we were transferring files today by touching phone backs to see how quick it was :)

    Euphemism?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Even with my careful wording, it does sound proper gay.

    too right. a few people at work and my brother in law have GS3s and the NFC/Wi-Fi Direct is the dogs nuts.

    Is this worth getting? I usually get a new phone pretty much every year but I have absolutely no issues with my Galaxy S2 running jelly bean on cyanogenmod.

    I always get phones sim free so should I drop the cash on this? Is it really worth the money I'd be putting down?

    To me it was as it was a massive spec jump from a nexus s. Not sure with yourself as the s2 is still a bloody good phone. Probably best if you test one out and see what you think

    I like the double takes when people first see it, "is that a phone?" :)
