iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Big Versus Bigger

A few days ago we’ve brought you the iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 showdown and since the article got pretty popular among the smartphone enthusiasts, we thought that we should compare the biggest iPhone ever with the biggest Samsung smartphone ever.

Even though some would say that you can’t compare a smartphone-tablet hybrid (the Galaxy Note 2) with a smartphone (the iPhone 5) the iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 battle should be interesting, since both devices are running the latest versions of the software platforms underpinning them, and both are hig-end terminals.

It’s obvious that the iPhone 5 is the more popular one with 5 million pre-orders in the first weekend, the same number of Galaxy Note units shipped by Samsung in five months. But the South Korean officials are confident that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will outsell its predecessor.

iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 come from different environments: one famous for its stability (Apple’s iOS 6), the other popular for being highly customizable (Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean), which would make the comparison between them an even tougher job.

Because the Samsung flagship was only made available for purchase in South Korea, there aren’t too many benchmark tests floating around, so the result of the iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note fight will be dictated by the technical specifications.
