Galaxy S2 to iPhone 5..

Should I upgrade to the iPhone 5 from my S2?

My only concern will be the screen size which is 0.3" smaller then what I am used to. Will it make that much of a difference? Thanks

Go to an Apple store without your SII and play around with an iPhone 5 and see what you think.

If you want to switch, I suggest erasing the SII's screen (and any other larger screened phone) from your memory. If you look at the screen, and immediately pick up an iPhone, you will be thinking "WTF?!??".

I'd say just go to an apple store and play with an iPhone 5 and see how you like it.

The big differences you'll notice hardware wise is the much higher quality screen on the 5 as the SGS2 is pretty low res compared to high end phones out today. But appart from that the SGS2 is still a very capable phone and will be getting JellyBean sometime soon which should make it as slick as you like. The other considerations are do you want/need removable storage and are the pros of switching too a new eco system out weighing the cons.

I have the original EVO. My contract is almost up, so I went to the store to play with the iPhone 5. In terms of size, it was like using my previous phone: the HTC Touch Pro. Too much of a step down. I'll probably go with the S3 or the Note2.

I never saw the movie, nor do I know what you're talking about. I imagine it has to do with the way you view something.
