Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. LG G2

"Monkey see, monkey do" seems to be the way that Samsung and LG operate. When one manufacturer does something new with the release of an Android smartphone, the other inevitably offers something strikingly similar in its next premium smartphone. The two companies have an ongoing relationship of trying to outdo each other but still one-up the other in a way unique enough to attract more customers.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the LG G2, the competing Korean manufacturers have found themselves at a point where both devices are actually rather unique yet still have many commonalities among its software. Before we delve into that, let's focus on how Samsung and LG have attempted to separate each other through hardware.

Both the G2 and Note 3 are on the large side of devices, but the G2 is more manageable because of its 5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35in (138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm) shape. The Galaxy Note 3 has a more challenging 5.95 x 3.12 x 0.32 in (151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3mm) that maintains usability thanks to a slender profile, but it's still rather large. The reason for that big size is the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display included in the Note 3, but I'd rather have the 5.2-inch display of the G2. Considering that both phones have excellent 1080p HD displays, what sets them apart is the G2's superior color profile and more accommodating size.
