Operating System

The Galaxy S3 comes pre-installed with the latest Android 4.0.4 code named Ice cream Sandwich whereas Galaxy Note has Android 2.3.4 which is code named yet another dessert name, Gingerbread. Android 4.0.4 or Ice cream Sandwich (ICS) is rolling out for Galaxy NOTE also now. The operating system is layered with Samsung's new Touch Wiz UX for Galaxy S3 while Galaxy Note comes with Touch Wiz 4.0.


Galaxy S3 features the 1.4GHz Cortex A9 Quad core CPU and an Exynos Processor while the Galaxy Note possess 1.4GHz Cortex A9 Dual core CPU and an Exynos Processor. Both the devices use Mali400MP GPU for graphics acceleration.

Definitely Galaxy S3 will be powerful than the Galaxy Note.


Galaxy S3 has a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which is scratch resistant and said to be much thinner that the Corning Gorilla Glass 1. The thinner the glass sheet over the display make Galaxy S3 more touch sensitive! The display has a pixel density is 306ppi. Galaxy Note on the other hand comes with a larger capacitive touch screen of 5.3 inch super AMOLED Plus with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels with Corning Gorilla Glass. Pixel Density is 285ppi.

The higher pixel density delivers sharp and crisp images with decent brightness.

Again Galaxy S3 wins here for resolution, latest Gorilla Glass and pixel density but Galaxy Note roars it victory for it's larger display size enabling more space for the visuals!


Galaxy S3 has an 8MP rear facing camera with LED Flash and Backlit Sensor. It records HD video at 1080p. The 1.9MP Front facing Camera records videos at 720p.

Galaxy Note has an 8MP rear facing camera which records HD Video at 1080p. The 2MP front facing camera is just for video calling purposes only.

Galaxy S3 wins slightly over Note for its backlit sensor that aids in much sharper and clear snaps and the HD video recording with the front camera!

Almost same feature but Galaxy S3 have a 64GB option too!


Both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note comprises of 1GB RAM.



Both the devices support LTE (Long Term evolution) which is a part of 4G technology. 3G/HSDPA and HSPA+ at speeds up to 21Mbps where supported. Wi-Fi can handle 802.11a/b/g/n with DLNA content sharing, Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi Hotspot.

Galaxy S3 can also use MHL to output to a monitor via its micro USB port. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, EDR.

Galaxy Note supports Bluetooth 3.0.


Galaxy Note now has a bit more advanced Li-Ion 2500mAh standard battery when compared to the Li-Ion 2100mAh standard battery that comes with Galaxy S3. This can be extremely useful for the larger display of Galaxy Note.

Although Galaxy Note has a better battery capacity, considering its larger screen, the devices should be again in a tie!


Galaxy S3 weighs 133 g while Galaxy Note weighs slightly more to 178 g.


Obviously, for a larger screen larger the dimension. Galaxy Note is 146.9 x 83 x 9.7 mm when Galaxy S3 is 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm (Length X Breadth X Thickness)


The pre-order price for Sim Free Galaxy S3 ranges between $790 - $830 whereas Galaxy Note is available for around $530.

Lets wait and see if the new device really worth the price!
