Samsung Galaxy Note II vs Galaxy S III

0. phoneArena 25 Sep 2012, 05:16 posted on

The Galaxy Note single-member phone family just expanded with its second member, the Note II, bringing many improvements over its predecessor. Is the Note II a strong enough package, however, to warrant your attention, if you are eyeing a regular high-end smartphone with “just” 4.8” screen, like the Galaxy S III? Read on our comparison to try and answer this question...

These two phones are targeted for different types of consumers in my opinion. The GS3 are for those that want an everyday to day use smartphone other than an iPhone with a larger screen but not too big to handle. The NoteII are for art-oriented-business esque type of people who are looking for more out of their smartphones (i.e. Being able to use an authentic and accurate stylus). They are not the typical consumers as the relatively large size would be inhibitive for their everyday use. Honestly, speaking from a GS3-owner persepective, the NoteII's size seems to be the biggest factor in the likeability department. The GS3 is already big enough for most people and the Note would go just a little past that. Overall, it all depends on the user's taste, taking advantage of Samsung's wide variety of choices fit for different types of people.

WWhat about the GPS, for the note they specify only A-GPS, for S3 GPS.
Does it mean that Note 2 is not as good as S3 for the GPS?
