HTC One Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Vs Apple iPhone 6: Who Would Take Lead The Pack In 2013

Now that we know that Samsung’s all set to unveil its latest Galaxy Note 3 pretty soon and that Apple will take on Samsung with its iPhone 6 latest by next year, we wonder if this would affect the success HTC could face with its stellar flagship, the HTC One.

From the latest concepts of the Galaxy Note 3 that have surfaced on the internet, what we can say is that this device is expected to be one sleek thing, with a design akin to that of the Galaxy S4, only with a much bigger screen. Some say it could be 5.8 inches, others feel that it could be 6.3 inches. We’re expecting Samsung to put in its 8-core Exynos 5 processor, at least 2 GB of RAM, either a 13 MP or even a 16 MP camera and possibly even Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Like we needed more reasons on top of the S Pen to love the Galaxy Note anyway!

And then there’s the iPhone 6, which is also expected to be a phablet with a screen size of up to 5.5 inches. We’ve also heard that Apple could offer different versions of the iPhone with varying screen sizes – all the way from a Mini right up to XL. And then there’s the rumor about the wraparound screen – we wonder what that would be like.

Can the HTC One with its 4.7-inch screen manage to take on gadgets so futuristic and amazing? Sure, it’s got neat specs and the Ultrapixels camera, but will that be enough?… Read the rest

Companion For PDA Or Working Mate– Choose Between The HTC One And Samsung Galaxy Note 2

For smartphone enthusiasts like me, each smartphone release is a way to stem out greed and temptation with a buy. This time, I have seen too much in a month with two darlings– Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and HTC One. In fact, so much is my addiction to both that I can barely weigh them against each other to arrive at a fave pick!

However, here is a clever way to compare both my buys with a simple outline of the hot and not features on each. Perhaps this could let you make your mind up on choosing either of the two.

HTC One is on a high with its top-class unibody design, a Qualcomm processor that boosts faster than lightning and a display that mesmerizes me to the core! He look is a winner with HTC One. The white and black color scheme is a classic combo that can never fade, even with time. Given that the body comes made from aluminum, the phone is sexy and sleek. Carrying it hardly makes me feel I am even having One in hand. The chassis has no flex at all. The 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display is gorgeous and the 1920×1080-pixel resolution at 468 pixels-per-inch tag makes it a beauty. The Qualcomm 600 Snapdragon S4 quad-core chip processor comes clubbed with dual-channel 2GB RAM and the Adreno 320 graphics-processing unit.

Now when I take my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in hand, I cannot skip noticing the stylus and the generous 5.5-inch display. Against the awesome HTC’s Super LCD3 display, the Super AMOLED might appear a wee bit weak. However, the 1280×720 pixel resolution at 267ppi tries to make a worthy mark. The processor is of Exynos 4412 1.6GHz quad-core chip variant and is as powerful as the Snapdragon. The only complaint I have here is that Samsung tends to become hot all too soon. Here, HTC One hits a sixer!

However, in terms of storage, my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 stands over HTC One with 16, 32 and 64 GB options in tow. The shutter earns Samsung a point with 8-megapixel, LED flash and 1080p video against HTC One’s 4-megapixel, LED flash, 1080p video and optical stabilization.  In terms of the OS, Samsung is slightly on the ups with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean against HTC’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

However, the HTC Sense 5 UI is more responsive than Samsung’s TouchWiz. If you are out for a buy to flaunt, Samsung would be a champ but of you truly desire a smartphone that works as much as it speaks, the HTC One is a choice to make with eyes wide shut!
