Never quite understood these threads... Everyone's needs are different, and I believe you have a 30 day window, to try out a phone, and see if it fits YOUR needs! My son has an iPhone5, and loves it! He's had it since they were released, and loves all of the accessories, loves the size, it works with his Apple computer he has for school, etc. etc. Me? I wouldn't take an iPhone if it was given to me. My point is, unless you don't have a return option when you buy outright (and I'd think you can purchase whichever phone from Best Buy, and be able to return it if you hate it), bite the bullet, make a choice, and buy one. If you decide you hate it, take it back! I've had the DNA for about 4 weeks, and absolutely love it! I couldn't imagine lugging the Note2 around, each and every day, pulling it out of my shirt pocket? pants pocket?...(where exactly DO you keep the Note2, if you're a guy) man purse?, and slapping that monstrosity to the side of my face, each and every time I need to make a call, but hey.... that's ME.
