[Since my OP was moved, the title didn't apply...so I changed it. Cheers!] Well, 3 years with iPhone, and I have moved on. Not trying to start a debate or anything...just sharing my experience. I have been a devout iOS advocate for the last few years. Bought my first iPad the first week it hit. I have a total of 3 iPads, 5 iPhones, 3 iPods, 1 Mac Air, and 3 modern iMacs in my classroom that I requested for video production. I am not giving up on all things Apple, just my cell phone. I was eligible for a new phone months ago, but waited for the iPhone 5s. This past weekend, I actually went into the largest Houston Best Buy (out of town for me) to buy the iPhone 5s. Although I bought 9" Nook on a clearance deal to experiment with, have a Google TV and thought seriously (for a few minutes) about the Nokia Lumina 41mp camera phone, I really assumed I would get another iPhone. So, I figured if anybody in Houston had one, they would. They did not. Out of curiosity, I asked if there was anything that was comparable to the iPhone camera. The answer blew me away. The guy said, "Are you kidding me? They are 2 years behind." I thought he was talking about the other cell phones behind Apple. I tried to clarify and he set me straight and said the iphone was way behind. So, I let them show me around. They took me to the Note, which had just came out on Friday. They didn't have in stock...sold out right away. But they had one on display that I played with. I also had them print up the specs. iPhone to Note3. One of the things I was surprised to see was that the iPhone only does 60 fps at 720. The note does 60fps at full HD. In fact, top video res is at 2k, not 1080. 2+ hours later, I was pretty sure I was ready to switch. Had to go home to my local Best Buy, but I landed 2 GN3s for my wife and I. Really, until yesterday evening, I wasn't 100% I was going to keep it. The phone is very complex, with every imaginable customization you can imagine. I didn't have time to mess with it Sunday evening, or Monday. But have been tweaking it last night and tonight. I have only played with the camera for about an hour so far. No side by side tests yet, but just with some simple test, like I found the 2 sec self timer, all of the shooting modes, voice mode to trigger the shutter, how to control the ISO, white balance, etc. I really like it. So much freedom! I wish the ISO went higher, but the fact that I can force 100 ISO is more important. I didn't really start liking it, except for the screen size, until I started tweaking it. There are SOOOOO many settings...and different places for different settings. iPhone is so simple...it is apps on the main screen and that is pretty much it. GN3 swipes and wipes from every direction with different things. Settings from the top. Magazine from the bottom. Shortcuts on the left. AND LOTS more. I turned off the double press of the button until I can figure out how to make it do what I want...since I am so use to hitting 2x on my iPhone. The fact is that if a JB from iPhone 5s was ready now, I probably wouldn't have switched. I have JBed every device, and spent a lot of time with the whole JB process, avoiding upgrades, reinstalling everything from scratch, every time a new JB has hit, just so I could do a few things that are easily done on Android. I spent more time learning the new system tonight...pretty much the entire evening, tweaking, setting, trying to get really familiar with the device. Wow! I am impressed and pleased with the switch. The integration with Google Docs, which I use every day in my classroom, is very effective. The size of the screen is perfect. During a faculty meeting this afternoon, instead of trying to look up student data on my iPhone 4s, I had a very intuitive system to work with a beautiful, large screen. It was quite the attention getter with other teachers commenting that they wanted one. I hope the camera holds up to my standard. I shot close to 10,000 photos on my iPhone 4 and 4s, and even won a photo contest with an iPhone shot. So, the camera is important to me (I teach high school photography), but I didn't want to go until January to get a new phone and decided enough was enough of waiting for the JB community. The 4s served me well, but it was time to get something bigger...and hopefully better. I had toyed with the idea getting a mini, but figured I would still have a small, slow 3g cellular connection, and the mini would not really serve the purpose I wanted. So, the 5.7" Galaxy Note 3, I decided, would do exactly what I wanted. I couldn't help but chuckle when I found the graffiti to text converter so effective on the Note...like the Newtons I bought nearly 20 years ago.
