Samsung Galaxy Note versus Samsung Galaxy S II: spec comparison
Have you heard about the Samsung Galaxy Note? We barely knew about the smartphone supernova until it hit us with its gargantuan 5.3-inch screen with impressive resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels and 180 degree viewing angles. 

It scores a couple of industry firsts except for the screen - most notably the tucked in S Pen stylus, which might not be exactly a new feature for smartphones, but it certainly seems new for modern platforms. Its connectivity package is pretty comprehensive with both LTE and HSPA+ radios, backed up by  a 2,500mAh battery, the biggest we’ve seen in a smartphone. 

But after the initial excitement, we’ve quickly peeked at the current Samsung flagship - the Samsung Galaxy S II. How does the new Galaxy Note fare against the S II? We’ve cold bloodedly put the specs of both devices side-to-side and the Galaxy Note seems to win in almost every category, but probably for the first time we’re starting to wonder: is bigger necessarily better this time around?
