Tech moguls Apple and Samsung are in an all-out battle in the smartphone market with the release of its respective flagship phones.
Samsung introduced its amazing phablet phone, Galaxy Note 2, a day before the IFA event in Berlin, Germany. Galaxy Note 2 boasts its huge screen, NFC through S-Beam, fast processor and many more.
Cupertino-based company Apple also unveiled its 2012 flagship phone last September 12 on a media event at Yerba Buena in California. iPhone 5 boasts some of its amazing features are 4G/LTE connectivity, 4-inch screen display and new operating system.
Many people are asking which device is better and worth the money. Below are some of the features that make Samsung Galaxy Note 2 a far better choice than the new iPhone 5.
Massive screen - Yes, Nokia finally let go of its prehistoric 3.5-inch screen display and replaced it with 4-inch screen. However, Samsung has long been increasing the size of the screens of its smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a huge 5.5-inch screen display, which is perfect for watching movies in your handsets.
Storage - Both devices come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variants. However, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 gained an advantage by including a microSD slot and allowing storage expansion up to 64GB. Thus, the Galaxy Note 2 can have at most 128GB of storage.
NFC - Another advantage of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is that it supports NFC through S-Beam, which cannot be found in iPhone 5.
Camera - The rear camera of both devices are 8-megapixel. However, the Galaxy Note 2 has the edge with its 1.9 megapixel front camera that will be slightly superior to the iPhone 5's 1.2 megapixel when it comes to video calls and the like.
Battery Life - The Galaxy Note 2 has an amazing 3,100mAh battery, which topped many devices. Meanwhile Apple has also boasted that the iPhone 5 should have 8 hours talk time on 3G.
