The handsets sport 8MP cameras with LED flash, with the more advanced camera app UI going to the Mega 6.3. It has the stills and video shutter keys on one and the same screen, so you don't have to switch back and forth, and a dialer that picks different new modes like Sound&Shot, Best Face, Drama and so on.

The pictures themselves, however, are better from the Note II, looking sharper, and with a more accurate white balance measurement.

Video is captured with 1080p resolution and 30fps, and comes out fluid without artifacts or skipped frames from both handsets.

The galleries on both phones are split-view, letting you have the folders on the left and their content on the right. There are photo editing options built into the apps, though the Note II's stylus allows for much more precise input here, despite the larger screen on the Mega 6.3

The music players are also with the same interface, and sport a variety of sound modes and equalizer presets. The loudspeakers on both are of about average strength and clarity.

Both phones play popular video formats like DivX/Xvid/MKV without a hitch, and up to Full HD resolution at that.
