Galaxy Note 2 vs Note 3
Posted on 2014-01-09
I'm pondering whether to get Note 1 or 2 or 3: I don't need
too many fancy features other than to be able to
a) read/edit MS Word, Excel, Ppt & Pdf files
b) play movies in youtube, gooddrama.net & drama.net (which requires Flash)
c) read emails & sync with my laptop's Outlook
d) browse Internet & use Whatsapp
(I need the big screen as my finger tends to miss with
screens smaller than 5" & I can't see small text clearly
due to long-sightedness)
Saw a youtube video showing Note 2's stylus is more sensitive than
Note 3's stylus. Is this a stylus issue or rather the screen technology's
issue? Does Note 1 have this issue?
I read another link that Note 3 requires the stylus to be pressed
harder to get a response, is this true?
Is the tip of Note 2 or 3's stylus finer?
I read that Note 2's battery lasts longer than Note 3 as Note 3 has
higher resolution screen & more power-consuming processors.
By how many minutes longer does Note 2's battery lasts (assuming
both batteries are brand new)?
Does Note 2 has obviously better audio volume/clarity than Note 3?
(I read somewhere it does). What about Note 2 compared to Note 1?
On my kid's iPhone 5 & iPad 3, the movies at gooddrama.net & drama.net
is rather laggy/choppy. Anyone tried if Note 1 or Note 2 is good when
playing videos from those 2 sites? Using my old Lenovo X61 (32 bit on
Win XP), those 2 sites' movies are good.
I heard from a few people that Galaxy S3 (& a couple of Android phones)
tend to hand & will need power cycle (remove battery & reinsert) to
clear while iPhones don't have this issue. Does this symptom manifest
often on Note 1, Note 2 or Note 3?
Does Note 1, Note 2 or Note 3 has an app that could talk to Apple's
Facetime? I have a few long-distance relatives whom I need to
communicate with regularly but they are on Apple products.
