I hope I don't upset anyone with this post but I'm due for a upgrade the end of may and was wondering if i should get the note or the iPhone 5 what are your thoughts
The Note 2 size may be intimidating but it is a beast of a phone. I love its speed and ability. I can easily connect Bluetooth devices like keyboard and mice to make it some what of a netbook for type papers or long emails. screen is big & awesome.
Samsung Galaxy Note II - SCH-I605 (16GB - Titanium) (Current)
JB 4.3 (Rooted) w/ Black Carbon Fiber Back in Seidio Active Case (Black)
Samsung Galaxy SIII SCH-I535 (16GB - White) (OLD)
JB 4.1.2 (Rooted) in Trident Kraken A.M.S. (Black) with Perseus A.M.S. (Black)
LG Spectrum VS920 (OLD)
ICS 4.0.4 (Rooted)
Motorola Droid X (OLD)
GB 2.3.7 (Rooted - Droid 3 easy root script) in Otterbox Defender
The force is strong in this one, get the note 2 , and don't cross over to the dark side. The note 2 is just bad a$$ you won't regret having one

My adult son loves iPhone (and he started with Android, go figure). He finally got his coveted iPhone 4 last year and has been happy as a clam. When the iPhone 5 came out, he couldn't wait to finally afford it. Well, short story long, he was playing with a friend's note 2 and his dream of owning the iPhone 5 is history. He can't wait to get a note 2.
Go to the store and spend some time playing with both phones. If you are a person who likes to tinker with your phone, discover new features, do lots of different things with your phone, then you will love the note 2. If you use your phone for the basics (phone, text, occasional internet, etc), then the iPhone might work better for you (although having a note 2 might quickly change how you typically use your phone).

Here's my feeble take on it based on the usage of Android vs iOS for my large customer base. If mail and some WEB browsing will be your primary use, either will work. If you want to be able to do more than iOS may not be the best option.
I have a cuistomer with an iPhone and he was very upset one day when I was in his office and could properly view his WEB site, but he couldn't. One major gripe some have with the iPhone is that you can't change the default browser when opening a link in a message and some people would rather NOT use Safari so even browsing is not optimal.
Tons of accessories
Very good support
Great ecosystem(itunes/Mac integration)
Easy to use
S-Pen features and true digitizer are great for artists or if you prefer to handwrite texts etc
Battery lasts for up to 48 hours(or longer if you're good)
5.5" AMOLED screen is bright and beautiful
SD Card and replaceable battery
Ultimately you should play with each before you make your call. If you know you're going to get one or the other. Get the one you like the least. Use it for a week(or up to 30 days), and if you don't like it send it back for the other phone. Don't trust the in store experiences unless you factory reset the phone before messing with it. Remember that everyone and their grandma has tortured the in store phones.

Note 2 is outstanding.. But you need to play with them in advance to see what you will like and how you use the phone.. I would test drive the phone.. Verizon you can get it for 14 days before you change your mind.. $35 restocking fee is worth it IMO if you want to test a phone.. Good luck.
