I gotta compare this to the Note 2 to see which will get my money. I'm leaning towards the Note 2 but if the One X 5 can provide an SD Card slot and a removable battery then I'ma go for that one.

I tried the normal ONE X, and man battery although decent, it was not good enough. (Heaps better than the old Desire I used to have (*see 8 hours!)). I couldnt try them again, they just dont spend enough money on keeping the device awake, and really, 5 inches.. thats just stupid. Anything over 4.3 inch is stupid TO ME though.

Beautiful, all phone makers announcing beautiful new phones, except.... Samsung. Samsung now stuck because it turns out, designing phones by yourself is not as easy as copycatting. No wonder they are suing LG, scared of being overtaken now.

You don't have to use the stylus with Note - you can do it all with your finger. The stylus gives you more precision and options that a finger alone can't.
So at least with the Note you get the choice of either - and if you don't want to use the stylus then just leave it stored inside the phone.

However the specs for this are great - love the 1080p! As a phablet is does need a bigger screen - 5.2" at the least

Agree that bigger is not better - smartphones are meant to be phones that do more, so need to be practical to use in one hand yet still have enough practical screen real estate.

4.2" to 4.6" screen hits the sweet spot on a phone, with less than 8.5mm thin with an ultra thin bezel hits the mark - I still find my SGS3 a little large

Just give AOSP Android, not Sense with bigger and bigger screen size. That will improve your sale.

Might be a good phone.. But screen is exaggerated like samsung S3.. Anyways, what should we expect from Androids all they have is nothing but big screen they really cam compete againts apple iPhones.. Let me guess Samsung S4 will be 6.3" ultra Amoled Screen..?
People who uses Android hardly believe that Bigger is Better.. Hahaha
