On the other side, Samsung Galaxy Note II is also a monster, which has got a massive 5.5-inch Super HD AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels of resolution, 267 PPI, a 1.6 GHz Exynos quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM which, a rear 8 Megapixel Auto Focus Camera with LED Flash, a front 1.9MP camera, Bluetooth v 4.0, NFC with Google Wallet service, and a massive 3,300 mAh battery.
