As a loyal Apple I can really no longer defend this slight upgrade every year. I think the biggest thing that irks me the most is that when I bought my 5 soon as I walked out the store I knew a new one was on its way in less than six or seven months. Apple is making a mockery of its fan base and users. I've ventured into my local AT&T store and played with the Note2 and was enamored with the screen size but Android's OS leaves a lot to be desired with me. But at this point I am not opposed to switching after I do a little more research.
Coming from a long time Apple fan, the Android OS is miles ahead of iOS in my opinion. I just got the Note 2 yesterday and I couldn't be happier. The amount of customization that you can do out of the box is unreal! If you don't want the Note 2 then just wait on the next wave of Android devices. They're only getting better.
