    I have a (white) iPhone5.

    I'm not a real Apple fan, but the iPhone5 works great compared to the Samsung Galaxy S that I had before.

    You're comparing a 5th generation phone to someone else's first generation phone?

    Dare I say my chevy impala works better than your honda horse wagon?

    I have a huge Note 2 with a cool carbon fiber case. Ok, you may now start to make fun of how big my phone is. My daughter and I are the only none iPhone people on our family. She has my 'old' Samsung S3 and I'm on my third phone in a years time. My wife is cutting me off from anymore upgrades and says I have a problem!

    goodintentions, I probably had more problems with the Samsung than most. It would require a "power reset" (removing the battery) at least once a week, sometimes more. That has nothing to do with the version of the phone as I had an older phone that was solid as a rock in that area. It had lots of preloaded junk apps that I didn't want or use and I couldn't get rid of them.

    I didn't have my Note 2 24 hours before I rooted it and removed all of the junk! My past three Samsung phones [Skyrocket, S3 and now the Note 2] have all ran great but my first one, the original Galaxy S needed TCL to run well.

    I think you got a lemon there. Ever since I lost my s3, I have been using my old original s. Works great. Haven't had any problem.

    Electronic devices can be inconsistent.

    Talk about lemons, this is my 4th Droid X2 I had replaced within 1-1/2 years.

    The first incident happened within the first month or two after having personalized with apps and icon placements. I set the alarm for 6:00 a.m. weekdays. When it went off I couldn't turn it off via the screen for it was froze. I had to take it out of the protective case, open the back, and yank out the battery. Upon reboot it worked fine. I thought it was a fluke and went on.

    Lol! It happened again the next morn! I took it to a Vz store to get a replacement. The tech stated "Well, Sir, we have to see that in order to replace it". She hard reset it. I suggested we test the alarm of which she did. Worked fine. No problomo. I went my way and had to personalize it again.

    Lol! It happened again for the third day. More determined to get a replacement, I took it back in only to hear her once again "Well, Sir, we have to see that in order to replace it". I'll tell you, it took all that was in me not to cuss her up and down! Gathering myself I said "Young lady, I'll tell you what. You show up at my house at 5:59 a.m. and I'll show you then". Luckily her supervisor said right then that they were having problems with screens on this particular model and to give me a replacement. Another personalization.

    One day not too long afterwards the back light for the search button ceased to work. I could live with that, but while I was at the store getting a case for my daughter's phone I thought I'd show them. They gave me a replacement. Ok. Personalized the phone again. Luckily I kept paying on the extended warranty.

    After a year in I unlocked it one day only to find a faint white screen. I almost got on my hands and knees to beg them for a different model! I said you'd be better off. No can do! Another replacement and another personalization. And yet another time 6 months later, being a year and a half into the contract.

    In the mean time Google buys Motorola. Nice!

    This last replacement screen has held so far, but I have to reboot every other day. I was up for new-in-two in February and they want me to upgrade so badly. I say "No can doooo!"

    I'm contract free as soon as my daughter's phone is up for upgrade in October. I'm saving up for phones to buy outright and going prepay. They won't be Scroogle Motorolas. Hopefully Windows phone 8 Lumias or similar.

    Note 2 is a wise choice.

    Once my colleague saw a Note 1(N7000) in my hand and exclaimed, "Man, that is so big!"
    I replied, "Why? Haven't you held anything more than 4" in your hands?"
