By  | 

There is no longer just one major phablet player on the market right now. As of this week’s announcement, the crown for the best phablet will be between the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and HTC DROID DNA. So let’s take a look at their pros and cons to see where they stand against each other.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs HTC DROID DNA: pros & cons

HTC DROID DNA: The HTC Droid DNA has one of the best displays seen on a device and it is easy to fit in the pocket and comes with great looks. However on the downside the device lacks external storage through SD card and the battery is non-removable plus smaller in capacity than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2: On the plus side for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the large 5.5 inch display, the fact that it comes with one of the fastest CPUs around on Android phones and it comes with software functions that are unique (e.g S-Pen features, multi-windows, etc). On the downside is the fact that the display has fewer ppi and it is hard to get the phablet into the average sized pocket.

When it comes down to which of the two phablets is the best for you, you will have to take several things into account. The main points to focus on is size, battery life and storage capacity. These 3 factors should help you decide. If not, you can look at the little extras such as the 1080p display and Beats Audio integration in the HTC DROID DNA, or the stylus and mult-windows support in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Both phablets have features of Androids of tomorrow and come with fast processors, crisp large displays and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
