I have a Samsung Glaxy Note, I bought it in december 2011, if I have to say it myself I think the timing was perfect to buy the phone. It has aged well..and not since I have bought it there have been much on the market that impress me enough to make me want to upgrade...
This is my phone with brown letter flip cover.
I haven ever used the silly Pen features, in fact
I do not even have the pen in the phone to save some grams
Right now I feel there is no phone I want.
QUAD HD display will be entering the market in 2014, I will only buy a QUAD HD display, and the one I want is from LG, they have presented the screen this summer rumours says it is that screen that is used in the Xplay 3s phone.
This is the screen I am talking about, I will not be stupid to buy a 1080p phone when I know QUAD hd is around the corner... this particular screen also offer superior brightness wish makes it very useful for outdoor use...which is good especailly in the summer.
If I was absolutely forced to buy a phone today it would probably be the LG G2 phone. It has the best screen on the market right now, (the is available to buy), and also a really good camera.
