You mean the battery can last a week with heavy use?! That would be such an outstanding feature I would like to have! What apps did you removed?

I used iphones for about 3 years and have been on android for about 2... my wife currently has an iphone 4S.

In answer to your questions.

I think android is ahead of iOS which is getting a bit old. That said iOS and apps is very polished and smooth and plenty for a non-power user.

The note 2 is better than the iphone 5 but a lot of people dont like the size of a 5.5 inch phone so its really personal choice.

I agree that iphones hold their value better. To start with they are a lot more expensive to buy ($200-$300 outright).

I think the iphone 5 camera is better than the note 2 especially in low light... thats not saying the note 2 is bad its just no better that the note or S3. However the camera app on the note 2 is streets ahead with controls and features.

Personally the iphone 5 with a 4" screen and iOS is starting to get really dated.. they really need a 5" phone and to upgrade iOS but are still good phones for most users.

ps. my biggest peeve with apple (apart from the OS and small screens) is being locked into iTunes which really does suck... full file management, OTA, micro sd card and USB OTG make android devices a lot more like a PC.

It's a cell phone with a media player. Camera for the Note II is excellent. The burst shots, zero lag and other functions are fantastic. If you're into photography, I suggest a DLSR camera. The pros use that.

> In reply to [deleted post]There is no way you can get a genuine Note 2 for 7000 Indian Rupee... that's about $125 AU.

This price is either not genuine or its on a plan.
