Samsung Galaxy Note II vs Galaxy S III vs Galaxy Note vs LG Optimus Vu: spec comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note II vs Galaxy S III vs Galaxy Note vs LG Optimus Vu: spec comparison
The Samsung Galaxy Note II, the second phablet, is now finally here and it exceeded all expectations coming with a larger and brighter 5.5-inch Super AMOLED RGB display, a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos 4412 processor, and 2GB of RAM. If that wasn't enough, it seems to be tailored for the US market with iPhone like 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, all expandable with microSD cards.

And if you add in the soft Hyperglaze plastic coating, the same as on the Galaxy S III by the way, and the removable humongous 3,100mAh battery, the Galaxy Note II forms to be a really outstanding device on its own. Finally, it sports Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the newest and snappiest version of Android.

It's a killer device for those wanting a crossover between a phone and a tablet, but how does it fare against other jumbo phones? Let's take a look at nothing else but just the facts. Here is a spec smackdown showing the differences between the G Note II, the best selling Samsung Galaxy S III, the other rival phablet, LG Optimus Vu (we expect to see the Vu 2 soon!) and the original Note.
