Samsung has been pushing updates to their phones a lot faster than other OEM's. Jellybean rolled out to the GSII, a phone that's almost two years old. Sony has great designs, I will give them credit, but their UI is the reason why I pick Samsung over Sony. Just my opinion.

Probably has something to do with the fact that they make the best overall Android phones.

Strange thing is that out of all the phones that I owned last year, HTC and Sony ones were the only ones that I had a problem with. Great build!

Stop Replacing build quality with design, they are too different things, Samsung's Phone are actually proven to be less likely to break

Apple has NEVER, EVER borrowed, copied, stolen anything ever, right? Wish I felt like copy and pasting all their "original" ideas but, obviously, the koolaid is strong with this darkvader! LOL

Nothing more which would reveal any iota of brilliance coming from you.

How bout you google everything you just said, and TouchWiz like HTC Sense? I can't even begin to understand how you came to that conclusion, they are polar opposites in terms of a UI

And Plus Samsung and LG use two completely different types of OLED screens, I mean look at the screens, The Samsung Colours pop way more due to the Saturation of the AMOLED screen, so unless yoou know the name of the screen tech you would never guess that they were the "same" screen

I know LG Galaxy Note II Pro has a better resolution of 1080p compared to the original Samsung Galaxy Note II, but Note 2 has a better screen, IMHO. AMOLES rules! :D

No S Pen, no software like dividing windows... A Note wannabe. Samsung is better.

How are you even going to use three windows on that screen, it would be way too cramped

It has something like that!
And you can control transparency too-so basically what you do is set transparency for both at 100% and resize them to fit half the screen each. Simple as that!

First of all we cant compare a 2012 phone with a 2013 one. On these days 6 months makes huge differences. Second, GN2 is about features.. and in that item i still dont see any phone that can compete against it.

For those of you that own the Note II, you know it's going to take more than a couple of spec improvements to top the software advantage that I believe Samsung will maintain.
