Switch ???

I have the Note 2 , and like everybody else I think it is a really good phone. And like everybody else I think it is big, maybe too big, you can not use it with one hand and it barley fits in a pocket,
So now that the S4 has come out and I went to look at it in the store it seems like a good phone. Nice size.
Anyway I was wondering if anyone has switched or is also thinking of switching ......???

Voice Command Activation

Is there a one-step way to activate Voice Command?

Example: with the I-phone, you simply push the lower center hardware button and you are immediately taken to Voice Command.

This is a terrific SAFETY and convenience feature. No more (1) push power button (2) swipe screen (3) press voice icon (or briefly push Search button) (4) Say 'hi Galaxy or press another icon.

4 steps instead of 1. Try that driving down the road.

If Apple has a patent on this, then pay them a royalty to use that safety/convenience feature.

Any other ideas or ways to a one-step method to get to Voice Command on Android?

Any other phones besides I-phone that provides this one-step feature?

Battery Life - Real Life experiences

Anyone have real life battery experiences? I am VERY curious about this phone, but none of the reviews really talk about battery life.

Thoughts out there anyone??

I need a battery cover/door for my note II. Does anyone know if the NFC chip has to be in the cover or is it embedded in the phone? Thanks

Hard to believe ! !

1st went by att store today, Brownwood, Tx. Played with GNII for about an hour.Cked out several benchmarks. Cannot believe the gaming benchmark on Smartbench 2012 is only a little above 1600, which is pretty BADDD.
My 1.5ghz dual core quail comm GSIII is over 2600. Got preorder shipped today, b her on 9th. Mann.
