The screen size of Note2 is 5.5 inches which brings the phone in the category of the usual tablets while for the other one the screen size is 4.8 inches which is also not lagging in the race with the other smartphones.

Galaxy note itself is huge in screensize with 5 inches now note 2 with 5.55 inches is not for a normal user,galaxy s3 is ok with 4.8inches.
And the prices are too much for a average user,iam looking forward for the lg nexus and lg optimus g, and asus padfone 2 to be released as these three have quad core processors with 2gb ram.Lets see what they are priced at.

Well I feel that Note 2 is a better choice if one is going for a very high handset above 35 k price level.
Specially the Ram and the processor, won’t let any interrupt in between heavy gaming.
