The processor of Mega 6.3 will get the support of 1.5GB RAM and Mali-T604 GPU where as the processor of Note II is having the support of 2GB RAM. So it is pretty clear that you can expect a good performance from galaxy 6.3 but not better than Note II.
Coming to the battery the Mega 6.3 got the battery power of 3200mAh which is slightly greater than Galaxy Note II’s 3100 mAh. But as Mega 6.3 has a big display and Note II operates on quad core processor the expected time with the battery is almost same for both the device.
