Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy SIII?

I'm looking to upgrade from my EVO and I'm trying to decide between these two "phones". Anyone have either one? Anyone tried both? Hit me with your knowledge.

Okay, someone help me out here before I trade this phone back in for the EVO LTE.

I just got the SIII and the damn thing doesn't re-flow text when you zoom. If I zoom into a page, the browser leaves the text at the same size and makes me scroll left/right to get the text back on the page as I read.

Anyone that's had an HTC product knows that when you zoom, the text changes size/format to continue to stay on the screen and just lengthen the text column. It's much more user friendly for reading.

I like this SIII, it's lightening fast and does a lot of things very well. It appears to have far superior battery life to my EVO and I want to continue to stay up to speed with the latest technology. But this is a massive pain in the ass and a borderline deal breaker for me.

Just because I don't wanna start a thread about it, the S3 outsold the iPhone last quarter.

the Evo would actually move text around to fit into a single page as you pinch/zoom.

This does not do that.

FOUND ONE!! Opera Mobile appears to work correctly.

Regular Opera didn't, is it possible I downloaded the wrong Dolphin Browser? This crap's pretty foreign to me at this point as I was fine with my HTC browser.

Or Boat Browser. I really like it. Not a big fan of Samsungs stock browser

Love my SIII. My mom got the Note because she needs a little larger viewing screen. Had the SII and loved it so it was an easy choice for me. SIII is fast as hell.

Note 2 has Quad core CPU and larger screen + the S-Pen

The Note 2 is very tempting but I too am waiting to see the Optimus G drop
