Samsung Galaxy Note coming this week!

I have a dilema at the moment where my contract has run out and I’m itching to buy a new phone. I was holding on for the iPhone 5 and was a little miffed at the 4S. For me I use my smartphone as a portable information, resource and entertainment centre: always with me keeping me connected and amused whatever the situation.

Samsung Galaxy Note coming this week!

The Samsung Galaxy Note has been on my radar since rumour control and I’ve just learned that it will be launched in the UK this Wednesday (source). I am still concerned that it may be too large although a larger screen is on my ‘must have’ list. I’ve also been looking with great interest at the Galaxy Nexus, due out later in November. Will my impatience lead to grabbing the Note next week or will I stick with my iPhone 4, fearful of a complete leap to a new OS? Or will I be persuaded to wait and see what the Nexus is like and make my mind up in a few weeks…? Let me know what you think!

  • Similar quandary for me too. My iPhone 3GS is getting tired. I held out for iPhone 5 but they launched 4S instead. I never liked the shape or feel of the 4 so still have a problem. Thinking of jumping the the Nexus, but am concerned by completely new OS and the fact that the Nexus screen is not as good as the GS II screen. Also, if the stories of the iPhone 5 are still to be believed (new shape, bigger screen etc) then I don’t want a long expensive contract right now. But, I do need a new phone. ( 3GS drops calls now and again and starting to drive me nuts).

    Id like to know what the HTC roadmap is, XL is a bit of a comprimise, low screen Res, low processor.

    Try HTC Titan, WP7 still has a way to go but is wonderfully fluid. Titan is just a great phone in spite of (relatively) low res screen.

    Exactly the same here. Had a 3 waited for a 5 which  didn’t come. So jumped at the excellent Galaxy S II. So first few days thought the screen the speed the camera are fantastic. Exchange email ok but not as quick as iOS. Started to notice I was getting in to dead ends with the interface most of the time. I tried so hard to swap, even getting an extended battery but after 2 weeks gave up and my new 4S is on the way. iOS is just better. Android is better than it was at the start but I feel it has still along way to go to catch up. Galaxy is now here >>

    It must be difficult for anyone with an older iPhone wnating to upgrade to something different?
    You will have had your phone for 2 years and as such invested in some apps. If you don’t want to lose them you have to upgrade to the another iPhone.
    At least if you have an android device, you can upgrade to any other Android device and won’t lose any apps.

    Same situation here, got an iPhone 4 and contract expires this month. Waited for an iPhone 5 which never came, took one look at the Note and knew this would be a awesome phone. Bit wary about moving from iOS to Android but I’ve heard good things about it.
