I just bought a Note 3 and I really like it so far. The size really isn't that big of a deal and the screen is great. I'm a big fan of the stylus so far too.

icloud plus iphone has been the best phone experience i've ever had. I'm an ex android user. Just about at the two year mark for me and the phone has performed bug free and maintained its battery life. I'm very pleased.

I would stick with the Samsung Galaxy lines or the HTC Ones. As a former iPhone user, I found that the IOS is so boring and out-dated. Even with the new IOS 7, it's still very unappealing. Most of the new features in the IOS7, Android already has it. Best thing is to try it out in the Apple store and see if the iPhone is right for you. It is really personal preference.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best smartphone out right now if you don't count the Galaxy Note 3 which is just not a phone anymore.

For me I think it has everything you need to have:
-Large, high quality screen and the phone is incredibly thin
-Android 4.3 is awesome, and with the Kit Kat coming out soon? iOS7 doesn't compare.
-Great google integration as well, which helps with almost all the apps you need.

Only thing I'd say the iPhone is better at is iMessage and some apps in the Appstore. Other than that? Android is the way to go.

They're not bad, but they're made of plastic which gives a "cheap" (they're certainly not cheap) feel.

The Note 3 will have 2 quad core processors in it.

Great review on Note 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NSBB-kFDGQ

Also S3 rooted aka SuperNexus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQy0NeVnxLo

Can someone explain to me why rooting your phone is a good idea? What are the benefits? Does it allow me to do more? If so, like what?

Shitty build quality
They infect and warp the Android OS with their TouchWiz (or whatever it's called), which is laggy
Horrid customer service
Short lifespan
Gimmicky features that are half assed and don't work properly (if at all)
Shitty screen… really, the colors aren't realistic… vibrant YES but not realistic
Again… L A G
Poor battery life

Even many in the Android community dislike and dismiss Samsung's offerings. So this isn't some sort of Apple fanboy rant, I recommended the HTC One which is a very nice phone.

They've also been caught lying about their benchmarks in order to sell to the geek community obsessed with specs and benchmarks.

Again, I'm sure some Android users will attest to everything I just posted.
