After using Galaxy Note. I do not like anything smaller than 5'' screen. :)

I have a tab 7.7 which is great for movies and web browsing at home, i did buy a nexus 10 but found it too large and heavy for me.

I have the note 2 with me wherever I go, I only take the tab 7.7 if I am flying some where or sitting in a car for a long time.

I played with it for a while it was fast and functional but by long standing usage i found it impractical . Many a times i was forced to get back to my tab which i found was more functional

But not everybody else thinks like you.
I'm sure there are real regular users that don't NEED such a beast, but they just want it!
Think about it, an AWESOME screen, great hardware and very good battery life. Why not?

Guys u call me idiot but i would still say note is impractical. Here are the reasons . Power users who use their devic for more than 5 hours a day , tablet is the best device for them. It can show more imformation on a larger screen. And a tablet is large enough to show and share content with people who sit beside u . So a tablet serves both as a personal and a productivity device . People who use their device less than 5 hours a day are regular users .they should buy a device which is most compact for them ie galaxy s three is fair enough for them. But a phablet which is a hybrid of both tablet and smart phone neither serves as a full productivity device nor a compact pocket friendly mobile . So note is impractical . Note is successful because of its wider availability and samsungs popularity .

The Note 2 has a bigger screen that is sharper (no pentile) and a lot brighter.
It is also more powerful has a lot better battery life and more ram (some models)
On top of that it has the S-pen and a lot of other software features.... YOU STILL THINK THE S3 IS BETTER? (the only place the s3 wins is size but using that argument you would say the I phone 4 is better than the note 2...hich is just silly)

These things are really missing :)
