There are so many smartphones out right now that it’s hard for customers to decide. If you’re stuck between the Galaxy Note 2, the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC One X+, we’re here to help.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Nokia Lumia 920 vs HTC One X+
Display: The Lumia 920 has a 4.5” LCD screen, and the HTC One X+ is a shade bigger at 4.7”, with an S-LCD 2 display. The Note 2 is biggest, with a 5.5” Super AMOLED screen.
Each phone has its plus points – the Note 2 is big, the Lumia 920 has an amazing responsiveness and a high ppi, and the HTC One X+ is good in bright light.
Software: These three phones are the company flagships, running the latest OSs. The Nokia Lumia 920 is on Windows Phone 8, while the HTC One X+ and the Galaxy Note 2 have Jelly Bean. WP 8 is still new, but the Lumia also has some nice apps like Lens Caps and Nokia Maps to attract people. OK, these can’t compete with iOS and Android, but this OS can only improve. Onto the Android phones, and the Galaxy Note 2 has lots of features, like S-Pen, multi-windows and redesigned screen rotation. The Note 2 is the winner.
Memory: The HTC One X+ comes in 32GB and 64GB versions. The Nokia Lumia 920 has 32GB. Neither has SD, so if storage is a big deal to you, the Galaxy Note 2 has 64GB and SD support for another 64GB. The winner stands out by miles.
Hardware: The Nokia Lumia 920 has a dual-core 1.5Ghz chip and 1GB of RAM. The Note 2 has twice the RAM, as well as a 1.6GHz quad-core chip. The HTC One X+ has a 1.7GHz quad-core chip with 1GB of RAM. The poor wee Lumia 920 doesn’t stand a chance against these Android big boys.
Cameras: The HTC One X+ and the Galaxy Note 2 have 8MP rear cameras with LED flash and autofocus. The Nokia Lumia 920 has an 8.7MP camera with dual LED flash. There’s scarcely a better camera for low light out there, as Nokia’s Pure View really does the business.
Front cameras: The Lumia 920 has a 1.3MP front snapper, the HTC One X+ has 1.6MP and the Galaxy Note 2 has 1.2MP.
Design: The Galaxy Note 2 falls down here. The Lumia 920 and the HTC One X+ are gorgeous, and have lovely build materials. It’s a matter of preference, but the Lumia 920 does it for me.
Batteries: These phones all have big batteries that’ll go for at least a day on one charge. The Nokia Lumia 920 has a 2,000mAh battery, the HTC One X+ a 2,100mAh battery and the Note 2 leads with a huge 3,100mAh battery.
In summation: The Galaxy Note 2 wins more points than the other two. The Nokia Lumia 920 was second, and the HTC One X+ lags behind on no points. Samsung stands victorious in this deathmatch.
