Girls Are Impressed By The Galaxy Note 2

So I was with a couple of girls the other day and they both had iPhones. We were sitting around and they were trying to play some games, read some webpages, etc... on their tiny screens and complained about how small the screen on iPhone is. They were literally scrunched up with their faces moved toward's their iPhones in order to see better. I took out my 5.5 inch Galaxy Note 2 and they were impressed by the size and wow factor of how clear, vibrant and easy it is to see things on the Note 2. They were also impressed by the richness of the colors.

We placed their iPhones side by side with my Note 2 and we laughed at why they were using something so small, especially since they always put their phones into their purse. They asked where they could buy my Note 2 and said they are ordering right away. They are not tech nerds so they had very little idea of what was available to buy or what phones better suit them.

I didn't even have to try.

Cool story brah!

Yeah well if pulling your 5.5" out of your pocket is going to impress a girl, these girls clearly don't need much to impress them....

You think that impresses them, try showing up in a Lamborghini with some blow.

I honestly think it is really funny that you mention this. Out of everyone at my office, the girls seem to like the note 2 the best.

The Note 2 is impressive and if it meets your needs better than the iPhone then congratulations.

You don't seem very secure about your choice of phone if you are always trying to get other people to use the same phone as you. But carry on your posts are always funny.

I was just with a friend yesterday and he took my phone to text someone and he made the comment "Wow, I feel like I'm literally in touch with the person, like we're having a real life conversation."

I'm like that's EXACTLY why I love this beast.

As opposed to every iPhone user who comes in here trying to stir up trouble?

Call me an old romantic but rather than a phone, I always find that a pair of slippers in the shape of elephants feet is the way to impress any girl.

This story sounds more like fantasy.

Couple of helpless girls struggling with something until their white knight showed up.

How does that impress them? I'm going with the Lamborghini and blow scenario, at least that's more realistic.

I seriously think Fiat 500C is the way to impress a girl, not a fancy Lambo. :P
