Software & content rule at the end of the day. My Mac, iPad, iPhone & Apple TV integrate so smoothly that I'm hooked.

Software and content for Apple is better.... if you're a middle-age women or in grade school in need of wide array of game apps. I have both Android and iOs devices and have to say Android is the no-frills, faster os for productivity for me. The big problem with Android devices have been battery power however which makes this phone intriguing. But 2 days on new LC tech seems kind of iffy to me. If Sharp can pull it off at quality of Samsung displays, it's an industry game changer.

@melonbarmonster, samsung displays quality? Its the first thing i notice whenever i see anyone using a Samsung phone; deep blue tinge to the screen which looks like it would tire your eyes super quickly. They make glasses for taming down blue light from your PC these days; perhaps Samsung needs to start including them with their phones.

Note, i had a play with this phone the other day. For anyone used to Android, or Even iOS, it is going to seem WEIRD. It is using Sharp's FeelUX (?) interface, and it was completely bizarre. Supposedly it works well, but the single physical button is not a home button as you would expect - it is some sort of quicklaunch?

And softbank need to get off their high horse if they think people are going to pay 90,000+ for this phone, with a balance of 40,000yen after 2 years of subsidies. Docomo phones are 20,000yen less to start with and the subsidies bring them down to basically free after 2 years.

-hopefully this 2 day before recharge concept will be modeled by others besides the Galaxy Note 2.
