If it was me I'd go Note 2 I think it's easily the most powerful handset on the market right now (cpu wise) and it's got a better Amoled screen than all the galaxy range before it then there's the stylus, but if you like gaming a lot the iPhone 5 might be a better bet.

I'd say it depends what you use your phone for mostly unless it's gaming then Note 2 and even then it will probably run any Android game you throw at it easily.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

If the majority of your wardrobe consists of fanny packs, cargo shorts, and utility kilts, go with the Galaxy Note 2.

If you dress like a normal human, iPhone 5, as you won't have a place to store your phablet without rocking some sort of elaborate murse.

That any android phone currently on the market is more powerful then the i5 is very, very debatable.

What about some sort of leather belt pouch used for storing your Galaxy Note 2, a YuGiOh deck, and enough d20's for an impromptu game of AD&D?

Well, it'd fit well with the free "MY OTHER CAR IS A TARDIS" T-shirt you (apparently?) get when you buy an Android device.
