GS III will be the more comfortable phone to hold and work with. Not that it's small, but the Note simply dwarfs anything next to it. Both handsets are made of plastic (though the GS III is polycarbonate), with the Galaxy S III being smooth and glossy, while the Note is more matte and has a texture to its back side. Overall, the Note has more of a business look to it, while the Galaxy S III is more consumer-friendly. If you watch tons of movies though, or play a lot of games, the Galaxy Note's 5.3” screen will work better.The GS III comes with a resolution of 720x1280, while the Note packs a bit more pixels – 800x1280. Due to its significantly bigger size, though, the Note has a lower pixel density – 285, versus the 306 ppi of the Galaxy S III. I like the display of the Galaxy S III more, because it's a bit brighter and has slightly more natural colors. Viewing angles on both devices are great. Outdoor visibility is also the same – not very good.
