Bing bing! Let the bells toll, because this is a battle of the big screens. In the midst of pre-orders and sighing over the specs, better still is the question “which one should I choose?” The Galaxy Note 3 made a massive splash, this buzz of excitement may be slightly tempered down with the Apple announcement scheduled in a couple of days. Alas, that will bring another battle. For now let the specs games begin!

The Note 3 has tremendous features and is available with all four major carriers. The carriers are selling the Note 3 for $299.99 and carriers like Verizon are selling the Galaxy Gear and Note 3 combined for $599.98 with a 2-year agreement. All carriers have an installment alternative to the contract for your review. Onward to the second portion of the versus battle of the two titans.
- Display 5.2-inches
- 13-megapixels rear facing camera resolution. 423 PPI and a screen resolution 1920 x1080 Full HD IPS.
- It mirrors the Note 3 with a Quad core 2.3GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.
- The RAM is a bit less with 2GB, and the internal memory up to 32GB.
- Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS.
- Battery is 3000mAh (not as impressive as the Note 3, but far superior over other models on the market).
- The camera features are pretty amazing and include: the Time Catch Shot, Clear Shot, High Dynamic Range, VR Panorama, Burst Shot, Beauty Shot and you can even take your photos using only your voice with the Cheese Shutter feature.
Like the Note 3, the LG G2 is available with all four major carriers. The average price of the device is $199.99. Of course of the biggest features missing on the LG G2 is the S-Pen included with the Note 3. If note taking and using a stylus isn’t a big selling point for you, the LG G2 may be the way to go.
These two contenders are entering an arena, waiting in anticipation for the iPhone 5S. How Apple decides to promote the features and release date can affect the sales of these two Androids. LG and Samsung took the early initiative to release their much wanted phones. AMOLED is a wow factor for many consumers, it provides a vibrant, enriched seamless experience.
The LG is a fantastic go-to phone for those who enjoy a stabilization camera feature. The phone is also priced about $100 less for customers who may want advanced features, but not quite ready for the price of the Galaxy Note 3. Personally speaking, this reviewer calls it a draw. Each of these Android powerhouses really bring specs and features to the table. The cost, stylus and display may be the point of final review for customers.
When it comes to the battle of the Galaxy Note 3 versus the LG G2, you can almost guarantee satisfaction with either one. If you want a huge screen, a writing utensil and a long time reputation from the King of Android, choose the Samsung Note 3. If you enjoy a comparable version with a scaled down price, a basic large screen with a slimmer hold, the LG G2 is your choice. Which of these two mighty titans will you choose?
