Samsung manufactures the highest number of Android-based smartphones in the world. This South Korean company is created such havoc in the market today that the competition no longer stands between Samsung and the other companies; there is a race among the different models of the company itself. There is no chance that the other companies can shake Samsung of its number one position in the market. Samsung will continue its reign in the industry so the only option left for companies like Nokia, HTC and Apple is to fight for the second position in the market.
Well, you are already aware of the fact that Samsung has been on some kind of an unimaginable spree to manufacture smartphones after smartphones so as to come up with some of the best gadgets that would satisfy that needs and the requirements of the people as per their preferences. Most of the smartphones launched by Samsung have one feature overpowering the other. If one device sports an extraordinary camera then the other will feature unimaginable screen specifications. The phablets being manufactured by the company are not of any less caliber either, they are also on par with the smartphones being manufactured by same company and the phablets and the smartphones are now on tough competition with each other and at the end of the day, Samsung itself is on a higher end for the company’s shares in the market are just skyrocketing every day.
To adhere to your dilemma for a purchase between a phablet and smartphone from Samsung here is a comparison between the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3; the comparison would be on the specification that the smartphone and phablet would house.
Processor and Power:
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is mounted with a Exynos 4412 Quad core processor backed a 1.2GHz Cortex A9 CPU and powered by Google’s Android version 4.1.1 Jellybean operating system for smartphones. While on the other hand the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is mounted a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor backed a dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait CPU powered by the Google’s Android version 4.2.2 Jellybean operating system.
When it comes to the operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 takes the higher stand but then when it comes to power the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sports a quad-core and the power becomes twice as that of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. The operating system is better in the smartphone for it’s the latest offering from the company while the Samsung Galaxy Note II was released in the month September 2012, when there were no claims of a newer version of the Android coming up. It was quite difficult to give a clear idea of which one among the two would offer better performance but then again provided the processor in stronger in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the Phablet could be considered.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 holds its screen dimensions in its name. The 6.3-inch screen from the company has laid a new benchmark in the industry and the ones who find the display of their smartphones the biggest asset, then the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 can never be a disappointment. The screen justifies the name ‘mega’ the smartphone carries. The Samsung Galaxy Note II sports a 5.5-inch display which does not hold any good in comparison to the ‘mega’ screen that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 sports. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is the best phablet yet from Samsung, therefore, it cannot take a back stand just for the sake of few inches of screen. Both the smartphone and the phablet are supported with a screen resolution of 720×1280 pixels, with the Smart phone’s screen being larger in width, the clarity would be definitely better in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note II moreover The phablet sports a super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen while the smartphone sports TFT capacitive screen, without a doubt, the Samsung Galaxy Note II sweeps the crown here.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3are equipped with an 8 Mega Pixel camera with a resolution of 3264×2448 pixels and are equipped with features like autofocus, LED Flash and Geo-Tagging. There are other features in the Samsung Galaxy Note II like simultaneous HD video and image recording and image stabilization, so if you would want to consider the camera your striking feature, then you can easily go for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, but if camera is not such a prominent feature, then both the devices stand neck to neck here.
The Samsung Galaxy Note comes in three different models, with each of them supporting an internal memory of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB and it also supports an external memory of 64GB through expandable MicroSD slot. The same applies to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 as well, but the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 comes with just two models that support the internal memory of the 16GB and 32GB each. When it comes to the memory then only fall back for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is that does have a mode that comes with an internal memory of 64GB, but otherwise, both the models support equal memory spaces under the hood.
When it comes to the battery, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 takes the higher hand with a difference of a few points, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is powered by a 3200mAh battery while the Samsung Galaxy Note II is powered by the 3100mAh battery, both Li-Ion ones. The difference is almost negligible here.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is tagged at a price of that approximately comes up to 30000/- INR while the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is tagged at the price of 30,900/- INR.
On an end note both the smartphones and the phablet are promising but somehow the Samsung Galaxy Note II emerges as clear winner here, if the screen size matters a lot to you, you might as well go for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, but otherwise, when it comes to power, and performance, the Samsung Galaxy Note II takes it great device. Just that it is now not so new in the block and the operating system is an older version of the Android. If you could wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note III, then you could get a better deal.
