Well after weeks of debating whether I should get a new iPhone or an Android phone, I finally decided to jump ship and give Android another chance, but this time I went big.
I decided to go with a Galaxy Note 2. It's big, but its fast. Quad Core CPU, 2GB RAM. Not bad for $100.00 (after AT&T gave me a $250.00 trade-in for my iPhone 4S), which wasn't a bad deal since I only paid $200.00 for that iPhone when I got it.
I was torn between the Galaxy S3, The Nokia Lumia, the HTC One X+ and the Note 2, but I went for the Note 2. Why? Very simple:
1. Fast Quad Core CPU
2. 2GB RAM
3. Removable battery
4. Micro SD Card
5. Micro USB
6. Impressive battery life for a phone that big.
None of the other phones were even close, although the S3 did have a removable battery, which is a plus for me.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is an impressive piece of hardware, but the battery on it sucks and it is not removable, no SD card and the phone seems to be plagued with reboot issues from what I have been reading, not to mention the poor selection of Apps from the Windows 8 apps store.
The Galaxy S3 was a fine phone but it had a dual core and 1GB of RAM.
The HTC was beautiful. Well built, but like the Nokia, no removable battery and poor battery life.
The Note 2 is also running Google's latest creation, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, unlike the S3, which is still on ICS.
The Note 2 is a big phone. The thing looks like a Star Trek Tricorder, but it is fast. I hope I made a good choice and I hope I don't regret it.
