    If you can fit it in your pockets, then definitely, it's a great device

    Edited:

    At least, from what I've heard, unfortunately I haven't had the chance to see one in the flesh

    I've had this phone in my hands before, its a great phone but depends on what jeans u wear if it will fit or not, the screen is truely HUGE and i cant control it with only left, or only your right hand your dumb can simply not touch the other side of the screen if u hold it normaly, Its indeed not so-much diffrent from the galaxy S2 , how ever its a great phone and if you are looking for a big phone, that will do everything u want and very easy to use... Buy it!

    The three best Android devices available right now are (arguably) the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy SII and the Galaxy Note. Choose based on size, but from what I've heard, the Galaxy Note is undoubtedly the best of the bunch. I don't think I've ever heard a negative thing about it, short of the size argument.

    Edited:

    I'm pretty sure a good test is, if you can fit a DS in your pocket, or a PSP, you can fit a Note. Try it in person, nonetheless.

    The original fat ones, then. Isn't the Note's screen 5.3"?

    Ah, it is. So the screen is the size of the entire DS.

    Nothing to apologize about, you had a valid point. The DS is the size of the entire screen on the Galaxy Note. That alone speaks volumes about the sheer scale of it.

    Only if you value the size of the phone and it's stylus. Otherwise, the Skyrocket HD is functionally identical, with higher DPI and generally more phone-like. If you don't care for Samsung, the Xperia Ion is another viable alternative.

    Guys, I got the Samsung Galaxy S2 from Dubai (European version I believe) and when I brought it to the states in California to use with AT&T and everything was fine.. however then I switched over to T-Mobile and apparently it can't register with 3G on their networks, it can just use the one lower than it, slow as shit, I think it's Edge or something..

    So planning on buying buying a Galaxy Note, I believe I should get the one from AT&T but will its 3g/4g work at T-Mobile?

    I think AT&T and T-Mo use different frequencies in their UMTS/HSPA protocols, so you can't just buy one from one carrier and use it with the other

    You can't do anything about it, other than wait for a T-Mo version or switch to AT&T.

    ugh, I love that phone, but at&t they canceled my unlimited data account and tried to bill me $400 dollars after it was already canceled too. So I'm not going back to them.

    I think the only phone that's compatible with both networks would be the Galaxy Nexus

    For the GSM Galaxy Nexus, this is completely correct.

    T-Mobile's 3G/4G frequencies are fucking weird.
