    I have the T-Mobile version of both and I like the larger format of the Note II. The S4 seems snappier but I'm running a custom kernel on my Note II and can OC to 1975Mghz.

    For me, I loved the Note 2 - everything about it... except the size in my pocket and in my hand. It was perfect for some things, but simply too big for me for my day to day driver as a phone.

    So for me the S4 is perfect - smaller size, similar features, etc. to the N2.

    And FWIW I also have a Note 8.0 that covers the tablet "half" of the Note 2 - it's a great tablet.

    Yeah. I'm 5'4". This 5" screen is already pushing it for a man of my stature.

    I would agree with you if I carried mine in my pocket.

    I tried using the Note 2 at work and even bought a belt clip holster for it. It was so big and clunky on my belt that it was uncomfortable, and worse, I bumped into a counter and the holster gave way and the Note fell onto my shoe. No damage though. I gave it to my wife and she carries it in her purse and loves it. I use the S3 and use the same type of holster and it works great for me. The S3 is at the top of my useful size scale. I prefer the dimensions of the 4.3" phones like the Charge and Rezound best for a work environment. But the size of the S3 and S4 seems to be the best compromise for me since it falls between the Rezound size and the Note 2 size. I might try out an S4 mini (4.3") to use at work and the S4 at home once the prices drop.

    I agree completely - S3/S4 is as big as I can handle. It helps that even though their profile is large, they're very thin and ergonomic, so still pocket well. I'm coming to really appreciate the large screen size on the S4 on basically the same sized phone as the S3 - it's spoiling me. I've also tried out an HTC One, and it's incredible, but the screen is starting to feel small compared to the S4.
