Differences Between Samsung Galaxy S 2 & Samsung Galaxy Note

In my previous post I mentioned Samsung Galaxy Note to be a “counterpart” of the current smartphone of the year – Samsung Galaxy S 2. Samsung has been constantly providing people with phones which have tons of features and all the same they are available at very low price too! This is probably why Samsung is progressing so fast. Samsung Galaxy S 2 was a huge success from the Samsung company because Samsung has already sold more than 25 million units of it.

Now as Samsung Galaxy S 2 was getting out of date, Samsung decided to bombard the Indian phone market with another amazing and super sizzling phone – Samsung Galaxy Note which also belonged to the same group, Galaxy. Samsung Galaxy Note cannot be called a counterpart for Samsung Galaxy S 2 and here is why it can’t be.

Samsung Galaxy Note Diff Galaxy S 2

Operating System

OS of both the phones are same and they are Android v2.3 (Gingerbread). Samsung Galaxy phones are generally loaded with the most common OS of the year i.e. Android. Android v2.3 is the choice of the youngsters of our country and that’s what different companies like Samsung, HTC, etc are providing them.

Processor and Performance

There is a huge difference between the processors of two amazing phones. Samsung Galaxy S 2 was powered with Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, with Exynos chipset but Samsung Galaxy Note is powered with a super powerful Dual-core 1.4GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, with Exynos chipset. There is no difference between the chipsets used in two processors but there is a huge difference in the clock speed of the processors of two phones.

Storage and Capacity

Storage capacity of both the phones is quite enough for daily use but let’s see whether the capacities are good enough to passify each other’s effect. Samsung Galaxy S 2 has 16GB internal memory which is upgradeable to 32GB via microSD card and on the other hand Samsung Galaxy Note is having 16GB internal memory and expandable memory up to 32GB via microSD card.

Camera and Photography

You can even record videos and click photos from these two amazing phones. Samsung Galaxy S 2 is having a 8MP camera with features like autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization etc. It has a 2MP secondary camera and you can even record full HD videos of size 1080p from it and that too at the speed of 30fps.

On the other hand Samsung Galaxy Note is having the camera of 8MP with features like autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization etc and it’s also having a secondary 2MP camera. It also allows you to shoot videos with the same quality and at the same speed.

  1. galaxy s2 is really nice phone..!!

  2. Samsung Galaxy Note is a huge phone when it’s screen size is compared to Galaxy S2. Being at the screen size of 4.3″ Galaxy S2 is a nice fit in hand but 5.3″ screen size of Galaxy Note can create mess for the users as it don’t fit comfortably in hand…Every manufacturer must take this issue seriously.
    BTW nice post. Keep it up…!!!

  6. i have used samsung galaxy s2 on hands the mobile gives outstanding performance and i didn’t any bugs in the phone. Even the mobile has powerful dual core ARM processor providing better processing speed and i opened multiple apps and all are running at background, even thought the mobile is performing very good without any sluggish.

  7. I always love Samsung for its low SAR.So using Samsung Mobiles may decrease the lose of tissue in our body.

  8. Samsung Galaxy SII is outstanding performance and this phone was not getting out of date (I believe) since the launch the sales is great and it almost kills iPhone sales.

    Your comparison is excellent.

  9. I think Galaxy S2 is Good but the Galaxy note is the best.
