  •  My wife and I have the GN2 (1+ / 0-)

    I suppose it's not fair to compare an Iphone to a phablet.  But since I have no trouble carrying it around or using it as a phone, the Iphone users in my office act like they are stuck banging two rocks together whenever I bring it out.

    When extra-terrestrial beings make their first appearance on our planet, and ask for representatives of our species to best exemplify humanity, I'm sending a nurse, a librarian, and a firefighter.

    •  the GN2 is awesome (0+ / 0-)

      I've only had a few of those types of encounter. Usually people either notice that it's big, or don't notice at all.

      Not much I don't like about this thing.The phone itself is so powerful, I think it's better specced than my netbook. It can run for days with a replacement battery (super important for a frequent traveler like me), which is not an option for iphone (or most other newer Android phones). Stylus is great, software overlay is usable, there's a very active ROM community,  etc...

      I'm a stickler for specs and usability, i.e., "function over form"  and Samsung has won me over.
