    Galaxy S3 or Note 2

    Phones 4U "might" be able to do me a deal on a new contract.

    I'm either going for the S3 or the Note 2

    My only concern is - is the Note 2 TOO big.

    Who's got one and whats it like in practice (pocket wise/car mounted wise)?

    I haven't tried the Note 2, but I own an S3.

    I like a big phone, and I must say the S3 is big enough. Much bigger, and I think it'd become an annoyance. I know that's not a lot of help as it's purely subjective!

    What I can say is the S3 is a cracking phone, came to it from a HTC Desire and have loved every minute of using it.

    I have an S3 and its a great phone. I had an HTC Desire too as my first droid phone and I do miss HTC Sense, so I may take a look at the new HTC One X which is out any day soon. Then there is the S4 :-)

    I don't wait for tomorrows any more as have less of them left in the bank compared to yesterdays

    Its the S3 or the Note 2 - and only the Note 2 if someone male says they are fine

    I know I'm being sexist here but females win if they use handbags and therefore have room for a Note - people who just carry wallets in pockets are disadvantaged on this front - maybe I just need a man-bag!

    If you don't already own and use a bag, you sure as hell don't want to start doing just to carry a phone around!

    As it happens, I almost always have a man nag on me to carry my camera equipment, which has got me thinking about a small tablet... but that's for another thread!

    There's two Note2 users in our office, and they both love it.

    The size is shocking at first, but after a week or two, you get so used to it that everyone else's phones feel like toys...

    The main benefit over the S3 is the 2GB of RAM over the S3s 1GB. The note 2 is beastly quick (not that the S3 is far behind)

    Personally, and as I'm using my phone for calls less and less, I'd go for the note 2

    I have the original Note and whilst everyone says "what the hell is that brick" for web services, video, writing it's great.

    I have it in an Otterbox Defender case which makes it even bigger so I'd say get the Note 2

    Note is great in both versions. I've used it since it came out - no issues with size. I use a Bluetooth earpiece for calls - no idea why people make jokes about the size of it for phone calls, why would you hold it to your head?

    Its two weeks away but if you dont want to wait, make sure when you are talking to you mobile provider they are aware that you know there is a new phone in two weeks and you dont expect to be paying the top price for your contract.

    why would you hold it to your head?
    em - cause you look just as much of a geek wearing a bluetooth headset as putting a large book to your ear

    I'm back on now for the Note - now I know you don't need a man-bag for it and @Domino says its OK cause he's cool (For a geek that is)

    Got the note 2. Great phone to use.

    Great battery life. S3 getting old now. Be the s4 out soon I think.
