Are you a long time iPhone user (did you have more iPhones before your 4S?)

The Galaxy S3 was a fine phone but it had a dual core and 1GB of RAM.

Nice choice of phone, you're gonna love it. I have the S3 and it's an awesome phone. One comment though, not sure if AT&T is different, but the Verizon branded S3 has the dual core with 2 GB RAM, I just checked to make sure after i saw your comment lol.

Mine has Jelly Bean too, installed the leaked verizon JB ROM that's posted on XDA
Sprints the same as yours. Dual Core, 2GB of RAM. And Sprint's has Jelly Bean.

If you love custom roms, don't pick Samsung. They still haven't released the source code of Exynos 4 processor found in S3 and Note 2 which is creating a big havoc in terms of getting stable custom roms, camera, hardware gpu acceleration etc.
Congrats on your buy btw
im sure the note 2 is a good piece of hardware, but i see hardly any reason for that pen input. it just feels awkward and does not feel natural. i had the note 1 and i had to sell it. i mean what do you really do with that pen input? are there really that nice real life scenarios where you need it? i dont know ...

The Note 2 and S3 have their open source files available for a long time... That's not Samsung's fault if devs can't make good use of it.

That's correct but it was only for ICS. with JB, things have changed a lot. Anyway why not hear it from the devs themselves than i arguing?

Yeah, thanks for the link.
I know Entropy from XDA... He hates Samsung. Actually, that is some kind of pressure he is putting over Samsung (as usual) but the CM team is actually very spoiled and I can bet that they're pretty jealous of Samsung's improvement over their own software. There are many, many features that Samsung is not obliged to open (those are Samsung's sales advantage) and Entropy HATES that. Also, I had CM9 on my Note 1 and there was a bug with SMS messages even on supposedly stable CM9, where sometimes SMS was not being delivered and there was no way of knowing that. Also Samsung had nothing to do with that. But they (he) refused to fix it because it was not priority. Well... Samsung would never let that happen.
I'm not a fanboy on any of those sides. I just want my phone working with all the features that are available to it, and it is me the one who has to judge what feature is priority.
I got a little tired of all that. I'm using the official ROM and if I want other themes and additional features, I go for deodexed ROMs with them.

Might have something to do with Kondik (Cyanogen) working for Samsung in OS development, it wasn't too long after he joined that TW stopped sucking and became the nice skin we currrently have on the S3/Note2
