iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Mon, Jan 14, 2013


So The prices are about the same with contract and slightly vary out of contract. Having an iPhone for years now, I debated getting a Samsung Note 2 and have been swapping between the two for the last couple of weeks. If you are a GSM customer, you are in luck. Simply buy a Nano to Micro Sim card adapter on Ebay and switch between the devices. Each has their perk and I feel like depending on which environment you are used to (IOS or Android), will dictate which one you like.

Here are some quick specs on the two devices

The note 2’s battery is replaceable and longer lasting. The Note 2 you can save documents and attach documents other than an image or a movie. Its really a personal computer in some aspects. iPhone however doesnt have as many options but still destroys it in several benchmarks and user feel when using the device.
