Its not out. Screens hardly bigger but the phone itself is. There is clearly a limit when it gets to be too big. Note 2 isn't though its perfect size. Doesn't look stupid either. Huwei might be a tad too big.
I'd consider the Huawei one if it was second generation. Note 1 sucks and is a piece of shit. Note 2 is bettter than the S3 and you get the awesome screen.
The Iphone is tiny. You are making yourself look really butthurt for not acknowledging the screen being too small. (Ya ok you want to watch a tv show or movie on that little thing.) When iphone5 first came out everyone was complaining about that.
Anyways I am hardly an expert just someone who waited until there was something worth stepping up for. Which is why I am trying to help this dude out so he doesn't waste his dough.
Read the reviews online of people who don't suck off apple or android most are tech geeks who have had both phones. Compare them in the store. You won't want that little ass thing.
