Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 5 : Which is the better smartphone on the market?
You may be choosing between the Apple iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as both are arguably the best handsets on the market right now which are readily available around the globe. So which is better?
While the iPhone 5 has enlarged its screen to a 4 inch display screen, the Galaxy Note 2 has a massive 5.5 inch screen. This could be a great feature for watching videos or reading, however, a complaint with the size is that you have to use two hands to do almost anything on the Galaxy Note 2. The Galaxy Note 2's processor is twice as fast as the iPhone 5 with more RAM, and has double the battery size at 3100mAh. The iPhone 5 still has a great battery life of 8 hours(talk time) which lasts you a whole day, but I guess if you want to take your phone camping for a whole weekend with no charger, then the Note 2 is the way to go with a remarkable 35 hours of talk time battery life.

The sleeker look and display would go to the Apple iPhone 5 with the Samsung handset looking somewhat cheap with to its plastic materials. Both phones have 8 megapixel cameras on the back. The Note 2 has with a 1.9MP shooter on the front while the Apple iPhone 5 a 1.2MP. The Galaxy Note 2 does have a cool feature with split screen, and even triple screen that is very cool.
So in summary the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has bigger display and battery, storage and processor. The Apple iPhone 5 has better price tag, looks, design and the camera with better photos in low light and faster image capture. In the end it comes down to which operating system you prefer, Android or iOS.
