Part I, Objective Data  Comparison

The fight includes five equally important rounds: price, android os version, cpu/processor and ram, battery, screen display.

Samsung Galaxy S3 is now priced at around $600 on Amazon whereas we are expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 price to be around $700!!

Android OS Version :
Galaxy Note 2 has the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. Even the Samsung Flagship Galaxy S3 would be getting the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

CPU / Processor and RAM :
Samsung Galaxy S3 sports a powerful Samsung made Exynos 4 Quad ( Exynos 4412 ) 32 nm chip which is a A9 Cortex Quad Core processor with each core clocked at 1.4Ghz and the same Exynos 4412 Quad is in Galaxy Note 2, only difference is that it is clocked at 1.6GHz.
Samsung Galaxy S3 has 1GB RAM whereas the Galaxy Note 2 features a 2GB RAM.

Battery :
Galaxy S3 which does certainly lasts long even with moderate to heavy usage.
Now the Galaxy Note 2 has a 3100 mAH powerful battery.It certainly would give huge battery life and it seems that can easily last a day or two.
But yeah comparitively, Note 2 battery wouldnt be much superior to that of the Galaxy S3 because the Note 2 is a bigger device meaning more bigger battery.

Screen Display :
Now these are some big displays in the market and undoubtedly almost the maximum the technology could offer at the moment.The Samsung Galaxy S3 flaunts a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD display with a pentile matrix having 306 ppi (pixels per inch).Its having a resolution of 1280 x 720 ( 720p). Now whereas the Galaxy Note 2 is flaunts a gigantic 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD with the same resolution surprisingly having the Pentile matrix as well.

Part II, The User Experience Contrast

Most of the time, user feedback is also very important, you can more truly to know the two mobile phone performance, include most things that not mentioned in the specification.

    * These 2 are wonderful smart phones of the year, if one decided to buy any one, they won’t select one from this easily since both are awesome specs. - from Taylor
    * I would say, it all depends, S3 is bit more expensive than galaxy note here. But Note gives more control over usage as its big in size. S3 is a proper phone while note is sort of alternate to tablet and laptops.  - from Norris
    * note 2 specs are little better than the s3 but there is not a major diff between them..if u like the bigger screen go with the note 2.if u like th lighter go with s3!!  - from Partridge
