Galaxy Mega vs Galaxy Note 2 : sensitivity, audio quality & apps

I'm contemplating to get unlocked Mega as it's lower cost at my
place than Note 2

Q1:
is the screen sensitivity of Mega better or equal to that of
Note 2?

Q2:
Which of the two has better audio quality?

Q3:
I've found on iPhone 4, videos can be choppy while being watched
using Puffin browser that comes with flash player (ie sort of slow
motion): If I'm watching online movies (youtube, gooddrama.net)
in HD, is Mega good enough (ie videos not choppy & its screen
supports HD resolution or what's the highest resolution it will
auto-negotiate down) ?  

Later I found that sites like gooddrama.net has a separate URL
/link for iPhone/iPad users that gives smooth video

Q4:
Does Mega's support the same version of Android as Note 3 ?

Q5:
Does Mega's Android OS support:
a) flash player from Adobe ?  or any other substitute flash player ?
b) freeware that allows me to edit MS 2010's Word, Excel & Ppt  ?
c) Chrome browser?
d) as many Android apps as Note 2's Android ?

I've got the answer to Q5: yes, Mega supports LTE/4G
(I suppose both the 6.3" & 5.7" do)

Substitute with another question:
can the stylus that comes with Note 2 work on a Mega?

Here is the comparison: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5398&idPhone2=4854

On Android, Adobe's Flash Player is no longer updated, but you can use an older version. See the guide here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installing-flash-player-android-devices.html

The stylus is designed for Note 2, and even if you make it work on another phone you do not have app support.

The Mega has the same apps, except for the stylus related ones.

Any high end Android phone is capable of playing HD video without issues.

HTH,

Gee thanks, the replies help a lot.

Does Mega come bundled with a fine-tip stylus (& accompanying drawing / note-
taking app)?  I miss the days of multi-touch phones which I can simply use any
pen to navigate/touch around the screen.

The usual soft-tip stylus are simply too "fat": there's a couple fine-tip stylus
in amazon but the low-cost ones (ie those below US$50) comes with a piece of
transparent plastic at the tip which I dislike

Nope, Mega does not have a stylus. If you absolutely need a pen, go for a Note.
