HTC One versus Samsung Galaxy Note II – spec showdown

HTC One versus Samsung Galaxy Note II – spec showdown

Without a doubt, the HTC One is going to be the biggest smartphone launch since the HTC EVO, but will it be big enough to stand up to Samsung’s monstrous Galaxy Note II? The HTC and Samsung Galaxy Note II don’t really have much in comment when you put them side-by-side, but the Note II has proven to be extremely popular among consumers who don’t seem to be phased by the device’s massive footprint. It’s unclear if people are taken with the idea of having a digital stylus with their phone or if they simply enjoy the Note II’s massive 5.5-inch display.

Are there any features or specs from the Samsung Galaxy Note II which you think would make the HTC One even better? Take a look at our HTC One versus Samsung Galaxy Note II spec comparison below and let us know which device you would rather call your own.

    I’d rather have the One. Since it’s a 4.7 inch screen its the same size of my One X. There’s no way I could hold a Note II in one hand.

    I like the bigger screen of the samsung but the over all size of the phone is a bit much.. problem with the htc one in my opinion is, no sd card slot..or removible batteries.. these options would go along way in improving the appeal of htc phones. the bigger battery in the htc one is a good start..bigger is better..i am wating to see the new 4 megapiexel cameras performance.. sounds good but i really like the 8 meg. camera of my one x.. lets see what the new camera can do… over all i am a htc loyalist.. pet peeve..make a phone that can be used on all carriers..for every one..a truely unlocked / unlockable international/world phone..not carrier based.. i live in canada and hate seeing all the new phone end up in the usa .. where even when unlocked cant be used here.. thx htc.
