I'm three weeks into the 30-day Samsung Galaxy Note Challenge and going strong with a new white model thanks to Samsung (I guess they do watch my videos!). Totally subjective here, but after years of working with black handsets, I like the way the white model looks.
I'm used to the size to the point where everything else looks small - from the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket all the way down to the Apple iPhone 4S. The only time I still feel awkward is when holding it up to the ear, as the placement of the earpiece feels odd to me. Battery life is definitely worse on the AT&T 4G LTE version (as I expected it to be), though I can still make it through the day with moderate use. Despite the power drain, it's still the second best Android phone in the US in regards to battery life.
More to come in Barcelona!
