"Great Screen, but way to big"

User for 2 months now. I was an iphone user for some time then switch to Galaxy S3. It was not hard to use android vs ios7 and I am 61. Iphone screen for my eyesight is just to small, so the Note 3 tempted me and I purchased it. I love how thin it is, but I ruin that with an otterbox case. Have to protect Iphone is perfect for my wife since she has small hands.
My problem is, when the phone rings, is it is very hard to get out of my pocket or jacket before they hang up or it goes to voice mail. To solve that issue, I usally lay it on my desk or lay it on the car console. Pain though when I am out shopping.
The phone has many features as you all know, I just have not found a reason to use them, not even the S-pen. I am not an exec or Lawyer nor do I work on Wall Street, which I am sure is amazing for them to use. Other then easier to see the screen, which again I love, it is a waste for the average user to own. The call quailty appears to be not as good on this phone as well for some reason.
I have determined that a phone the size of the Galaxy S4 is just about the perfect size. It fits in your pocket and has many features as well.
As far as the war between android users and iphone users, there is really not much difference using the two. Widgets, not many people I know use them anyway. I only use the one for weather and time.
I bought this phone with the AT&T next plan, so I think if Apple makes a device the same size as the Galaxy S3 or S4, I will switch back. I just feel like the OS7 is smoother to use.
Bottom line, if you need a phone for business the Note 3 is amazing but if you work in a different field or line of work and have pretty good eyesight, try the S-4 or other 4 or 4 7/8 size device out there.
