Dear John,
In spite of your biased article, I'd like to share some thoughs. How can you compare a smartphone with a Pad?!? How can you call the Korean device a smartphone?!? This is either a phone for 10 feet Marsians, a coffee tray or an iPad/tablet, but NOT a phone. Besides, you can also explain what all the hypes about hyper-oled or whatever display, means to the public and why the colours look so unnatural, right? The whole article is wrong. You should compare the ''Note'' with an iPad, not with a smartphone...

Because it has a phone function in it. By your comment we should start comparing the iPod Touch to every other phone out there right? And even if this was compared to the iPad, it'd still win, better display, phone functions, s pen

I would pick android over apple any day but the note is way too big and uncomfortable. I remember when 4.3" was pretty big and now I`d be lucky to find a top-tier phone that`s 4.3 inches. if 5" screens become the standard for android phones then I'll be on my way to a store to pick up an iPhone.

HAHAHAHA you can't even compare the two...they're on totally opposite sides: one is of the smallest, one is THE biggest. No one is going narrow down their choices to these two...

That GNote is a nice phone but c'mon people it's a HUGE DOORSTOP of a phone! Its too darn big and inconvenient to haul around.....you might as well carry around a tablet!

iPhone 4S gets my nod......and jailbroken the iPhone simply RULES!

'Nuff said, and you have been schooled! ;)

Dude I agree, I'd never buy anything that big. If you don't mind the size, then of course, the Note will be a good device. But in my opinion, it just seems slightly impractical carrying that around. Your phone is suppose to be your "take with you everywhere" device.

"it’s able to somehow magically sum up conversation from random strangers"

Totally, 100% true!

I'm forced to agree with the article. The Note is clearly a better tablet than the iPhone.

"Sorry iPhone but 3.5 inches isn't enough to satisfy our insatiable needs"...anybody else chuckle a little at this?

"Also, well endowed in key areas." There is no way these weren't on purpose.

i think we should have a better reviewer such as a person who isnt pro-iphone. because you are trying to make the iphone seem a lot better than what it really is.

I own both; currently using my GNote but it's still lightyears behind my 4S. True, it's huge and it gets a lot of compliments but my iPhone's form factor, design, and outright functionality wins for me.

Aside from the size of the GNote (which isn't operable one handed like my iPhone 4S is), it's camera isn't as high of quality as my 4S, nor does it honestly seem faster in comparision (and mind you, Apple underclocks it's chipset and has half the RAM).

IMO GNote < 4S.
