Tried the Note yesterday with the wifey. I think this is the only phone which made us consider android. The only caveat is the integration with out current gadgets and the ease of syncing. Both of us got so spoiled with the plug and play ease of the iphone.
Im thinking of selling my iphone just to try this out. I just dont want to get stuck with a gadget I cannot use with all my other gadgets.
Here are some of the "challenges". Feel free to add guys.
- Syncing via iTunes doesn't work. You'll have to sync via Samsung's Kies, DoubleTwist, or copy paste the folders on the phone itself. The good thing though is that you don't have to convert your videos anymore to MP4. Yay! Just put it in your phone after download.
- No AirPlay. I miss this the most since I have an AppleTV hooked up to my 40" TV with the JBL Sound Bar. The good thing is I can still stream music from my MBP to the set-up so it's not really that bad, hehe.
- iCloud won't work. You'll need to import your contacts to Google. Good news is that this isn't too hard to do. Just export the Vcard file and upload to Google.
- Apps that I bought for iOS aren't transferrable to Android. This is what probably annoyed me the most having spent thousands on iOS apps.
There you go
Also hows the Voice Talk of android compared to SIRI of iPhone 4s?
Im in the crossroads of doing what you did but I feel that I still need to maintain one apple device so I wont throw away the apps I bought.
How much is the Note on the mall vendors that offer 12 months 0%? I'm interested to purchase one this Christmas

^ For black (Or Blue)... I'm desperately seeking a WHITE model. Everyone on ebay/sulit/tipidcp have said no whites - even in malls. Hasn't been released here yet.... Even WidgetCity doesn't have white despite having it advertised on their website.
