Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 vs Samsung Galaxy Note II
Phone calls made with either of these devices sound very good, but the Note II beats the Mega 5.8 by a hair with its better-sounding earpiece. Their microphones perform great as well, delivering clean, undistorted sound to the other end of the line.


While the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 comes with a massive, 2600mAh battery, the cell in the Note II is even bigger, with a capacity of 3100mAh. Both smartphones have battery life that is well above average and will last through at least a full day of moderate usage.


It goes without saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note II beats the Galaxy Mega 5.8 by a mile. The former is a high-end handset after all, while the latter is positioned in the mid-range tier. Unsurprisingly, the Note II delivers a much better user experience since it is faster, easier to operate, and outfitted with a screen of higher quality. On top of that, you get the S Pen digital stylus for doodling and taking down quick notes.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8, on the other hand, is inferior in a number of aspects, although it is still a decent device with very few alternatives. We must note that it is very similar to the Note II in terms of software, and it has a pretty capable camera as well. But what's likely to be the biggest advantage of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 over the Galaxy Note II (and many smartphones of 5-inches and beyond, for that matter) is that it will be cheaper once it is on the market, although we can't yet say by how much. Still, if pricing is not an issue, going with the Samsung Galaxy Note II instead would be a better choice.
