screen resolution

Galaxy Note 3
1920 x 1080
Galaxy Grand 2
1280 x 720
That's the same resolution as the Galaxy S4, but as the screen is larger on the Galaxy Note 3 the pixel count isn't as great at 386ppi, so it's not quite as pin sharp as its smaller brother.

Note: we're still including our benchmarks section, but in light of Samsung's "cheating" to increase benchmark results by ~10% in all major benchmark programs except GFXBench by raising thermal ceilings and maximizing use of all cores, we're not going highlight the Note's 3's synthetic benchmark results.
