  1. already covered by me…

  2. difficult task with all of these spammers targeting your blog. Any Suggestions??

  3. samsung galaxy note is a winner for sure..

  4. Although Samsung Galaxy Note is a winner in this race, but we need to realize one thing that Samsung Galaxy Note is very recently launched one and Galaxy SII has already proved that more than 10 Million units sold in 6 months.

    So people are very eager to buy Samsung Galaxy Note since the hardware is built to perform more than what Samsung Galaxy SII perform. In my opinion both the phones are good and we cannot validate which one is good when it comes usage.

    The thing is that the difference is what we pay for the hardware, if we want 1.2GHz = 30K or 1.4GHz for 40K. Isn’t right?

  6. Well my friends i must say u need to also compare the portability of both phones and i own the s2 and it does feel light and comfy to carry around which i cant say the same for the note so i guess if this adds up then overall its a tie…size galaxy S II wins…just to add about the Galaxy Note hope they consider battery capacity because bigger screen means less battery life…
