Friends are using iPhone but I prefer my Note 2. I get unlimited data so they all leech off of my 4G connection when I open wireless hotspot. Think it's much faster than 3G on their iPhones. Even though it sucks up a ton of battery, but it's ok because I'm using a mpj battery with higher capacity and carrying around a portable charger. When it's just me, 4G is faster than my cable internet at home. Can't get that on the iPhone, but it is just personal preference anyway.
