by Mihai Matei on November 19, 2012


During the past few weeks we’ve been assaulted by a wave of amazing handsets that are either available for purchase or will soon be, and we’re not really complaining, but choosing between all these great devices can become rather difficult or even annoying.

To make a quick recap, some of the most sought after smartphones at this point in time are the LG Nexus 4, the HTC Droid DNA and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and in case you’re still having difficulties in deciding which one you should buy, then take a look below and we’ll make a quick analysis on all three gadgets, side-by-side.

LG Nexus 4 vs HTC Droid DNA vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – A Few Extra Thoughts

The above mentioned handsets are as powerful as they can get at this point in time and although there are a few similarities between them, all three seem to be part of different categories. The Nexus 4′s biggest selling point is the fact that it’s a Google device which will receive timely updates, and that it comes unlocked at a very affordable price.

The HTC Droid DNA sports an amazing display with an unparalleled resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a pixel density of 440 ppi, and last but certainly not least, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 packs the larger screen and battery of the three. Additionally, the 5.5-inch handset goes hand in hand with an S-Pen and lots of  apps to support it, being one of the main reasons why the Note 2 is heralded as a great “productivity tool”.

In terms of hardware specs, all three handsets are amazingly good. The Nexus 4 and the Droid DNA pack a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz, whereas the Note 2 conceals an Exynos quad-core SoC running at 1.6 GHz under its hood. All three handsets come packed with 2 GB of RAM and 8 MP cameras on the back, but the Note 2 takes the cake in terms of storage.

Samsung’s phablet also arrives with additional unique features including the S-Pen, great multitasking capabilities, expression tools and some extra smart features, and is also available in the US via AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Sprint, with Verizon planning on launching the device before the end of the month.

The 8 GB Nexus 4 on the other hand, comes unlocked at the same price (or lower depending on the carrier) as the subsidized Note 2, so that’s definitely a big advantage. On the other hand, the HTC Droid DNA will be Verizon-bound and that doesn’t help its case, but it’s a unique device in itself and you won’t experience something similar on any other smartphone for months to come.


In case you haven’t made up your mind, consult the chart above and feel free to see how HTC Droid DNA’s display compares with the rest.

Drop us a line and let us know which one you’d rather pick.

    I have wireless charging on my Note 2. Weird that it’s listed as not having it.
