Well, after my not-so-great experience with the S3 (signal issues/dropped calls), I swore I would never buy another Samsung phone...Guess I lied...The Note 2 is huge, and it intrigues me...I like big screens, so we'll see if it annoys me or thrills me. Bought it off eBay, so won't have it till the end of the week. I really don't dislike my Maxx HD, I just get bored every few months. Anyway, I've done alot of reading on the Note 2, and don't think i've read where one person didn't like the phone. That impresses me.
