The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy Note have their own strong points clearly cut out for them. The HTC One X is the only quad-core smartphone on the market, while the Samsung Galaxy Note has the biggest screen money can buy.
Samsung Galaxy Note vs HTC One X (Part I)
Now if you’re can’t make up your mind as to which smartphone to get then here is a quick rundown of where the Samsung Galaxy Note still stands as king despite its age. So if you’re into the Galaxy Note and want a reason to pick it over the newer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich One X, this should do it:
Larger display, higher resolution: Not only does the Samsung Galaxy Note have a 13 percent bigger display but its resolution is also 12 percent higher (800×1280 versus the 720×1280.
Battery is removable: The HTC One X not only has a smaller battery than the Samsung Galaxy Note (1,800mAh vs 2,500mAh) but is is also not removable. So if you’re a power user, this is a big plus on the Galaxy Note.
Expandable storage: While the local US variant with its dual-core processor (Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE) has a microSD card slot, the HTC One X doesn’t. The Galaxy Note on the other hand does which is important when you’re shooting all those 1080p HD videos and wish to leave them on your phone for playback (it has a HD screen after all with 5.1 sound via earphones).
Better for video calls: While both the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy Note have front-facing cameras, the Note has a 2MP while the One X sits at 1.3MP. Now if you make video calls frequently then you know just how juge of a difference this means.
To top it all off, the Samsung Galaxy Note has an advanced capacitive stylus with apps to go with it. While many consider the stylus dead, it certainly comes in handy on a humungous display and the clever apps Samsung has designed for it to work with. Give it a try, you’ll know what we mean.
