I wondering if any one has an issue with the note 2 only having 16gb of memory. I know you can add a bigger card, but you can't save your apps to the memory card. I have the 32 GB stand I never run out of space.

16 gb does fill up fast, my next phone will have at least 32gb internal storage and a microSD slot.

I don't have any issues. Only use between 50-100 apps here. All my music goes on my sd card along with any rom/root stuff so I have plenty left still

Go with the note 2.
Galaxy s III had alot of reception issues. When I had mine, it got very hot and fried my 64 gbbsd card. Formatted and damaged it due to over heating issues.
I also like the features alot better in the note 2. Other than it being huge, you get used to it in a day or so.
And the whole pen feature the note 2 offers really comes in hand editing pics and such
Good luck with your choice

A lot of pics that I use to have to use photoshop to edit (pixelate, combine whatever) I can do straight from the phone.

The note is a fantastic device. I really love the look and feel of it and the generous screen size. The pen is a real feature. I find myself using it a lotin work to take down notes.

The only trade off is the size of the thing.

I have the Note 2, my brother has the S3. We both agree that the Note 2 is better because of the battery life and larger screen (other than that they're pretty similar). Don't let the size of the Note 2 discourage you, it's still very manageable and I haven't found a pocket on my pants that it doesn't fit in.

I say go with the Note 2, nothing comes close to the power and performance of the Exynos QUAD CPU.

I had a S3 back when I was on Sprint, and if I remember correctly it has a Dual Core Snapdragon. This Exynos flies. Deffinetly the fastes Android I have ever used.

This thing is even faster then my Nexus 7 which is Tegra 3 Quad...
