Personally I believe that the so called reviewers/experts and pundits are influenced by giveaways by Apple's Marketing and Sales.
It is there that the "Apple Way" and the "Apple Gospel" is preached.
The Apple Way and Gospel are:
1. 3.5" is the perfect screen because of the span or reach of most people's thumb, unless
2. it is an Apple iPad with it's 9.7" screen which provides magic.
3. Stylus are useless, and in fact detrimental. In fact they may cause baldness. You will note that Jobs tried a stylus and it had some effect on even him.
4. Thinnest is next to Godliness (equate to Appleness)
5. Apple invented "shapes."
If you follow those tenants you will see why the Note was derided, and just about everything that might compete with Apple is both wrong, fattening and probably illegal.
