Our recommendation: Both the devices are great and the only difference comes in the screen size. At the front of display the Galaxy S3 definitely is better. The Note 2 comes with enterprise solutions. If you want to use it especially for your office so that you do not need a carry a separate laptop the Note 2 is great device. In case you need an all-rounder device with more play, less work and a size that fits into your pocket the S3 will be good. On price front there is little difference.
