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.

What a deal
I went to a sprint store to look at the note 2 and see if they would price match (they wouldn't). I had researched it to death and wanted it. I checked out the LG in the store and decided I liked it much better. Went to best buy and picked it up for $49 (I signed up for the phone freedom discount last February). The phone is great and I don't regret not getting the note 2. The note is a great phone but the LG is a better fit for me.

What makes the Optimus G a better phone than the Note 2?

Specs are similar... Quad core etc. Battery is better on note 2 (i can go 16 hours with moderate use but I think the note is longer) . Size was the clincher for me. I couldn't handle the notes size. I'm still adjusting to the LG. I had a nexus s so it's quite a bit bigger. I like the stock rom on the LG. The devs have the bootloader unlocked. I'm rooted buy haven't seen a need to unlock.

I picked up the DNA, pretty cool. The screen is insane. 660 ppi something like that. I think it feels better in the hand than the note 2

Just did the same exact thing after much research and deliberation. I haven't gotten a lot of time to play with it, bit this is easily the fastest mobile device I've ever had.

I just switched from the stock lg launcher to nova launcher and it's perfect for me.

I also unlocked. Just because once rooted there is a $1 app to have TWRP, installed for those interested its called FreeGee

I used nova on my nexus mainly to remember my home screens as I changed roms. It was great for that.

Waiting on Sony to announce their new phones Monday (Xperia Z/ZL). 5 inch screens which are smaller than the S3. I really don't care about the screen size, I just want Sony to make a decent phone because they are the one company left that still bothers to put a FM transmitter in their phones and these are their first 100% true Sony phones. They are gunning for the iPhone and S3/4.

I used Amon Ra's recovery when I had the Evo.

I'll never use TWRP again. Hard-bricked my GS2 back in Nov.
