Video Comparison: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung is responsible for two of the most highly anticipated phones of the year – we’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

They look similar, boast many of the same features and aren’t radically difference in price. So, which one is right for you?

The most obvious difference between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 is that the Note is much larger. It has a 5.5in screen, while the Galaxy S3 has a “puny” 4.8in number.

Extra screen inches come in very handy when you’re watching a video or surfing the web, but they do mean that the Note 2 is a beast of a phone. If you wear trousers with dainty little pockets, it simply won’t fit.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has another big plus point to shout about though – the S Pen. This is a stylus that uses a Wacom digitiser, making it much more advanced than the average capacitive stylus. It can sense varying pressure levels. To break it down, this means that with the right drawing app you can draw with difference thicknesses just by pressing down a bit harder.
