They’re worse rivals than Kane and Abel, but when Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 devices, even they couldn’t have foreseen the massive success that came their way. And then, a while later, Apple launched the iPhone 5, making the world pause and wonder if this would somehow put a dent on the rising success of Samsung’s latest. We’ve already shown you how the iPhone 5 compares to the Galaxy S3, so here’s taking a look at what differentiates Apple’s latest smartphone from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.
Better viewing: Even though the iPhone 5 has a much smaller screen of 4 inches when compared to the Galaxy Note’s gorgeous 5.5 inch display, its higher pixel density reproduces images much more clearly than the latter’s.
More storage: The best thing about the Galaxy Note 2 is not just its 64GB internal memory, but the thoughtful microSD card slot that can let you add more memory to your device. The iPhone 5, though available with 64GB of internal memory, has no other means of expanding storage capacity. But in this day and age of the cloud, would this really stand as too much of a deterrent? We leave that up to you to decide.
Thinner: If size really does matter, and we don’t just mean the display, the iPhone 5 can be termed a winner. It is 1.8mm thinner than the Galaxy Note 2, bringing sleek back in fashion!
More processing power: The Galaxy Note 2 is powered by a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, making it way faster and more powerful than the iPhone’s dual-core A6 processor with 1G RAM.
What’s more, the Galaxy Note 2 even has a more powerful battery (which can be removed too!), a better screen resolution, a better front-facing camera, and NFC connectivity capabilities. So, what’s your device of choice – an Android Jelly Bean Galaxy Note 2 or the iOS 6 iPhone 5?
