My thoughts on the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note
You can't really compare both phones. The S2 is for the mass consumers and it fits a lot of the criterias for a typical phone. Not the Note. It's in its own category, something not seen the past few years. Yes, there was that Dell 5" phone, but it just didn't have the computing power, the resolution and functionality to make it stand out.

The S2 is what I would call your typical phone. It's for those who want a real phone. Something they can use with one hand to call their friend, type a SMS/Whatsapp message, check their email or play the occasional game. The size and shape is fantastic despite what people believe. I never really had a lot of problems using it with one hand. It's a fantastic device, the screen never disappoints, but in the end, it's just a really nice phone and that's all there is to it.

Enter the Note. It comes with one of the highest resolution available on an Android device (1280x800), powered by dual 1.4ghz cores, comes with a huge and brilliant 5.3" screen, a slim form for its size, a huge 2500mah battery and the superb stylus based on Wacom's superb inductive technology. This is what I would consider a phone for enthuiasts out there who want the best technology can provide.

The Note is for those who want to use their phone like an organizer, something to take notes, and to draw/sketch art or technical stuff. I would say it's for anybody who uses their phone like an organizer more than a phone. Some may comment and say that the stylus is a throwback to the dark resistive age, but I fully disagree. The Note is functional and extremely useable even without the stylus. And this is where the stylus really shines. It's like a tool to further enhance your productivity, allowing you to do things not possible with crappy resistive styluses, or huge tipped capacitive styluses. Whatever you have written will be as accurate Wacom's technology can achieve.

Is the Note for everyone? Definitely not. It's big, a little on the heavy side, and the screen is definitely not 1 handed friendly. But if you are like me and do not use your phone much as a phone, this will be one of the best phone you can get your hands on.

Any comments on my post?

Well first of all, I'm tired of waiting for telco plan.

Assuming SGN will be priced similarly with SGS2, thus ip4s when it first released, you can sell the iP for 980 and purchase SGN for 895 (complete with flip cover provided telco doesn't include it... which is worth ard $39).

Anyway, the money made out of this may not be very substantial to justify doing this trade.. just that you get to play with the phone 1 day earlier or mayb make enough money for chicken rice at far east plaza and a movie opposite at Lido..
