Well I have owned and liked both. But, and it is a big "but" the international versions of both. I know carrier/US versions can be very different from what the rest of the world is using.
Having said that for the screen size, S-pen and (on international versions at least) the extra 1GB of RAM is, IMHO only worth it if your not gong to spend more than a handful of dollars upgrading. It really is pretty subjective although I feel my "upgrade" was worth it.
