Don't be afraid of the big screen!
when I was thinking about getting this phone, my main concern was the large size of it, will it fit in my pockets? I've had this phone for about 3 months now, and I just love the big screen! yes the phone is big, but you get over that pretty quick! after having this phone for 3 months my old phone (iPhone 4S) feels like a toy phone! how did i ever read long Wikipedia articles on such a small screen?
This version of the Galaxy Note comes with a Dual 1.5GH processor, very fast! so far I've never had any problems loading anything.
The stylus is great! it works very well, you don't really need it for anything other than drawing, the touch sensitivity on the phone is great with just your finger.
Battery life on this phone is surprisingly pretty decent! My galaxy note with it's huge screen actually has far better battery life than my brothers Galaxy Nexus. I'm a heavy data user, and my phone will easily last a day on a single charge, I'm sure I'd only have to charge it every second day if i used my phone as much as most people do.

Another concern before getting this phone was the camera. My old phone had an amazing camera, and I thought that was something I was going to have to give up for a bigger screen, turns out I didn't have to! the camera on the Galaxy Note is just as good as the camera on my iPhone!

This phone is my first Android after 3 iPhones, I highly doubt I'll be going back to iPhone, Android is miles ahead of iOS.
