I went with the Note 3 in the end. We'll see if I can even carry it. It was on preorder and doesn't even ship until tomorrow. Wheeee!

And now, to upset the North Americans, this is my plan:

-Totally unlimited data (no fair use policy)
-200 minutes (remember all incoming is free)
-5000 texts
£12.50/month (and that includes all tax and fees)

No contract, just a monthly bill.

Woo woo!
