Samsung Galaxy Note Challenge: Day 14

I'm almost at the halfway mark with the Samsung Galaxy Note, and I have a confession.  Originally, I said I would keep the Galaxy Note on my personal line for 30 days.  I have accounts with all four carriers, and have nine personal lines of service.  So I threw the Note on another personal line (nice little loophole, huh?), and reactivated my iPhone 4S on my main personal line. 

Here's the kicker.  After a few hours of use, I found myself missing the Galaxy Note.  I'm still not sure what happened or if I'll keep a phone this large after 30 days, but I switched back and have been pleased with the experience since.  Otherwise, 4G LTE connectivity is a welcome feature on the AT&T version, though I find myself missing the physical home button on the international build.  Battery life has remained decent, despite the expected battery drain that comes from LTE connectivity.  It's noticeable, but I'm still able to make it through a full day with plenty of juice to spare.
