IPS screens are more color accurate while the super AMOLED screens tend to over saturate colors badly. Outside of this, I'd pick an GS3 over an iPhone any day, but if screen display is of any importance, the newer IPS displays (nexus 4, HTC one X) smoke the GS3's display.
I do realize that the note 2 I'm getting does have a super AMOLED display, but it has been improved to a more natural RGB pixel display, mostly eliminating the bluish/greenish tint to the whites and gives better color accuracy, and size be damned if the screen has improved that much.
I would agree totally. SAMOLED is low on my list of desired screens, but they do have their perks too. Great contrast, blacker blacks, low power consumption, and lower blur for video and games.
They do however have slightly over saturated colors (which I actually like, but most reviewers count against it) and whites have a slight blue tint I think.
You will be very happy with it I think. Don't let a few tiny specs scare you away unless you're a die hard for the best of the best screens. Besides, even Apple's IPS displays have faults.
