February 20, 2013 / Posted by Tony on Supported Devices

Even though iPhone 5 has been equipped with top-notch components like dual-core A6 processor and 8-megapixel iSight camera, it may still not be favored for being a mobile with 4-inch display. The flooding of monster screen phones like Galaxy S3 has resulted in the fact that the increase in the screen size will help the mobile to gain bigger chance to win more customers. As a consequence, most users may more or less consider about dropping iPhone 5 for Galaxy Note 2. However, before replacing iPhone 5 with Galaxy Note 2, users need to find out ways to transfer music from iPhone 5 to Galaxy Note 2 at first. Otherwise, they will spend much time and even money collecting those iPhone 5 music songs on Galaxy Note 2.
