    @randy – the 5.8 – dual / 6.3 – single
    @arvinsim – imagine watching a movie or a video on a 6.3-inch screen
    @Freeje – note 2 is currently at 26,999 with sumsung store / mega is currenly at 22,999 with 16GB internal memory. 4k is 4k and specs are not that far to compare
    @Treng – ok
    @abuzalzal – were did you get the 1k difference? honestly if you are going to compare the actual screen – its better than the note 2
    @marco – i dont vote for the 5.8 even if its dual sim
