What's important for me? -Large, high-resolution screen. Web pages don't look very nice at low resolutions. -Performance and responsiveness. -Reception. A smartphone loses much of its utility without a connection. -The ability to do exactly what I want with it instead of the device manufacturer dictating what I can and can't do. -PIM software that can compete with the Palm OS and Windows Mobile offerings. -If feasible, a Wacom pen digitizer. That's what really makes me rank Samsung's Galaxy Note line above all else, along with all of the above. I have a Galaxy S III right now, but mostly because the Sprint BOGO promo didn't extend to the Galaxy Note II. Oh well, I can wait for the inevitable Note III or Note IV.
