I've been holding out for a ling time now, mainly waiting on the J Butterfly to hit the Americas. I honestly can't see the DNA as a competitor to the Note 1 or 2, as the only thing that would make them cross-shop items is that they're huge. A stylus, multi-window support, and aspect ratio really places the note 2 into mini-tab area, where the DNA seems to be a GS3 competitor (it's actually closer in size to the S3 than the Note2). I also think that SD card slot is the only thing keeping it from being a true galaxy S3 alternative (since we don't know battery life yet). I think that the Note3 will probably have exynos 5 dual in it, and that's really the only SoC beside s4 pro I feel comfortable to get me through a year+ of 'power use'. Do you guys agree? Have you heard of anything that actually gives the Note2 a run for its money? Thanks.
