Was Santa good to you this year? Did you unwrap a present and find a tidy little white Apple box?

I got a new Galaxy Note 2 (which is equiValent to 3 iPhones) for Christmas, will these 'Starter Apps' work on my 5.5" screen? Can I use my S-Pen with iNotes or to correct the directions on Apple Maps; that S-Pen comes in handy for correcting Apple Maps.

But can your 5.5 screen and S-Pen fix the constant crashes the apps via android STILL suffer? Can all the added features such as live wallpapers make up for the constant frustration caused by a phone that freezes? Will the effect of spending $300 on a phone only to have it outdated in six months and have virtually no value be fixed by...S-Voice?

Dude my iPhone 5 crashed, lagged,had wifi issues, the k on the keyboard pulsed all the time, and lost service a lot. Even tho I love iOS, and still use my iPad 3 which I absolutely love... I sold my ip5 got a gnote 2, and am blown away by it. Long story short iPhones have the same issues man.

I had the Droid (pathetic) then the iphone 4 which was great..I wonder if the 5 is having issues. My 4 crashed very rarely. I only assume the Note 2 has the same issues generally as the GS3 which I have had for a month and is a huge headache sometimes. Im happy you like your new phone though!

The original droid was terrible. If you do your research on android phones and which one to buy, you will have an amazing experience. I work for sprint tech. services. Iphones close apps ALMOST as much as android apps do. Iphones, so far they experience huge signal loss issues. It's becoming a nightmare.

So what is your point. I sold my Galaxy Nexus, and bought a SGS3, and three month later my phone died due to a motherboard issue. Now I find out several S3 are dying due to same issue, as reported by pocket now. At least yours worked, I have to wait who knows how long before getting a replacement.

And the gnote 2 isn't equivalent two 3 iPhones dude. I own one its an awesome device, but the iPhone is no slouch either. Even tho it has its hiccups.

Of course I didn't get an iDevice for Xmas, my family and I love each other why would they troll me by getting me an apple novelty?

it would be a curse for me if I got any of the apple product for Christmas...especially iDevices... other tech gifts would do.. even the lame Surface RT... best Christmas gift was a 32GB Nexus 7 from my sister : ) ...
