    One is a phone, the other a phablet. Which do you want?

    The Note is better specs-wise, having a faster processor and a HD screen (that's the highest resoution on any phone), as well as a higher pixel density

    But ultimately it depends what size you prefer. The S2 is very old now despite still being a good phone. If the note is too big for you, its better to consider the HTC One X, or Galaxy Nexus, or GS3

    Me, i went from a GSII, to Galaxy Nexus, and then a HTC One X.

    The Nexus easily beats the other 2 for me, largely down to the superior stock android user interface.

    I've now got a galaxy note, and removed the hideous slow and awkward touchwizz interface with stock galaxy nexus android 4.04. It now runs like a dream, super fast, slick, extremely polished, and consistent - faster than the quad core HTC One X

    Never underestimate the importance of user interface and screen quality/size. Both are more important than anything else.

    The note doesnt even feel large in anyway at all after just a few days use. Its size doesnt inhibit how i use my phone in anyway at all. When i pick up my Nexus now, it feels microscopic and too small to be useful - which is amazing considering i thought it was massive when i first bought it

    Ive been using a note for the last few weeks and I'm genuinely totally and utterly used to the size. It feels quite big when you first start using it but after a while it just feels like any other phone. The only time I'm even remotely aware of the size is when calling people...otherwise its all good.

    I will warn you that it is damn near impossible to use anything smaller after this. I used a friends iPhone and it was genuinely like using a childs toy.

    Yeah, definitely this.

    To be honest, I prefer the larger screen size - it makes games more enjoyable and allows for real web browsing.

    Da***? :lolwut:

    That's essentially a new premium device every 3-4 months. How do you even? :confused:
