    After seeing and reading about the Note 2 and how great of a device it is, my urge to want one has been increasing. I enjoy both the S3 and the Nexus 7 but I've been wondering about selling them to purchase a Note 2. The only thing holding back is the fact that I would essentially be giving up 2 great devices for one.

    Anyone else have a similar experience?

    Hmmm. I have an S3 and an N7 and was going to do just that. I ordered the Note from Amazon but when it arrived, I found that the screen wasn't as sharp as either. Preferred the S3. And the N7 is awesome value.

    I would if I were in your shoes.

    Was thinking about getting a Nexus 7. Not anymore.

    Got a Note 2. Probably more fun than a Nexus 7.

    Stylus, rear camera, expandable memory.

    I definitely agree that a Note 2 is more fun to use but that shouldn't be the main factor to base his decision on.

    I have a GS3 and Nexus 7 but I rarely use my Nexus 7, but only because I'm too busy to. I'd be neglecting an iPad or any other tablet just as much.

    For me the Note 2 is too big. If it's not for you then you have to think about what you do on your Nexus 7 and how you'll be doing it on the Note 2. Will the screen be big enough? Really if size wasn't an issue for me I would definitely own a Note 2.

    I think the Note 2 too big.
    But I also think the S3 is too big.

    For a daily phone that is.

    That's why I'm keeping my iPhone 4S as my primary phone. Note 2 is more like a PDA.
