    So basically it will be whether you like Touchwiz or Sense between this and the new HTC One.

      The note 2 has a huge battery so it definitely has best battery out there. When they shrink the phone size they need to start looking at power savings

    I hope this isnt true, the Exynos range are just better in real use. All Exynos devices feel smoother and faster to me than any of the alternatives. It may not be due to the hardware, but Samsungs Kernel optimisation just being better, i don’t know. Still, id take Snapdragon over Tegra any day.
