I've owned both the Samsung Note 2 and 3 for the past couple of years. Both devices are great for what it does. I've been thinking about getting the iphone 6 and not the plus. One of the things that bugged me most about a big phone was that at most times the device couldn't fit in my pants pocket; therefore I always had to carry it. So I instead went for the samsung S4 and it was the perfect size. What I miss about the note is the pen that it comes with; other than that I think a smaller phone device like a 4.7 is best. Hearing many people going for the 5.5 device I really think it's a mistake for them. I'm a pretty huge guy and I think my note 3 was too big after awhile.
