I had the Iphone since release up until the 4. Was tired of waiting for a bigger screen so now I have the Galaxy Note 2, plenty big for my tastes. Sadly the Iphone seems to be losing its muster since. Samsung is the new Apple.

The note 2 is huge, but the Galaxy S4 is supposed to be just half an inch less. I wont be surprised if the note gets bigger lol. I hope Samsung introduces a new mini, with the same specs, but just a smaller screen.
