I am looking to upgrade my phone and deciding on these two phones. Does anyone have these phones, can you tell me the pros and cons?

Thank you original.gif

I have the Galaxy 3. DH wishes he had one instead of an IPhone. I like the pictures it takes (apart from long distance ones). Learning how the widgets works was hard but happy with it overall. Functions are good, easy to get applications etc. I have fun using the photo editing programs. The size is good.

The Note is a fair bit bigger than the S3, for me that alone turned me off the Note. It's not comfortable to hold in the hand when you are making a call. I also like something that fits in the back pocket, I actually decided against upgrading from the S2 because it fits nicer in the pocket than the S3 does.

DH likes the Note over the S3 but he uses bluetooth for most of his calls and really only has the phone in his hand for social networking and gaming. For social networking and gaming the Note is probably the better one.

I have the note 2 and DH has a galaxy S3, I LOVE my note! it's not hard to handle one hand alothough there is a option to change it to one handed use (I haven't used it) I love android 4.1.2  biggrin.gif


I did have their first galaxy tab and it was clunky and hard to fit on a hand bag, the note side by side to the S3 isn't too bad size wise. I love it's bigger screen as I spend half my reading or looking a picture heavy sites.

DH is very jealous  cool.gif

Go into the shops and try them out. They're basically the same phone except the note is massive.

If you're jumping from an iPhone to a S3, the s3 will feel huge in your hand. However, after holding the note for about 5 minutes, you'll feel the S3 is the perfect sized phone.  biggrin.gif

Well I have just ordered the Galaxy S3.

I have seen how huge the Note is - and it's the biggest phone I have ever seen in my life.  It's beautiful.

I honestly went with the S3 because I don't think that I could adjust to a phone as big as the Note and it has this little 'pen' thingy that I (again) don't think that I would use.
