Galaxy Note 2 vs Rumored HTC Nexus X: Fight!

By  | 

Despite it being very large the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has managed to do something that some people never thought possible and that is to do well. The device now has a larger display of 5.5 inches.

HTC have not let the success of the device go past them and they decided to release a tablet of their own. Leaks said the tablet would have the name of the HTC Droid Incredible X5 and then fresh rumours came out that there was to be a Nexus version of the device and it would be called the Nexus X. But how will it compare to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2?

In the US the device has the same specs as the version that is international. It comes with a screen size of 5.5 inches and this is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1280 x 720. It has the quad core processor at 1.6Ghz and comes with support for 4G LTE. Jelly Bean is the OS and it has the S Pen stylus. This has received an update from the original Note. The device is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB and it was the first to come with quad core and LTE in the US.

The handset was launched on all carriers in the US.

The HTC Nexus X meanwhile has the 1080p 5 inch display with 480ppi and the Snapdragon processor, coupled with 1.5GHz of RAM, 16GB of storage internally. However it will not have support for a battery that is removable or a stylus.

There is little about the information of the OS, however this is said to be Jelly Bean, unless of course Google have Key Lime Pie out.

One of the largest advantages to the HTC Google Nexus X is the fact that it will have a 5inch display of 1080p and this means it is easier to put in the pocket and carry around. It will also have pure Android and this will get updates faster.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a battery that is removable, the stylus and a great track record. The Nexus X after all will be the first attempt by HTC for a phablet.
