HTC One X+ vs Galaxy Note 2

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'll be looking into getting a handset in the relatively near future and it is without a doubt between these two handsets. I've had the One X and loved it, and if for some reason the One X+ wasn't reasonably available in Canada or doesn't release within the next month or two, I'll have no problem conceding to the One X. That being said, the Note 2 is a distinct competitor. I've played with a Note 1 for extensive periods of time and don't find the size intrusive, and seeing as how I often watch movies and sometimes play games on my phone, I think the size of either would be a huge benefit, with a slight edge of course to the Note. Of all the manufacturers interfaces I do like Sense the most, so that is an advantage there as well.

What do you guys think would be best?

Thanks,
Xero.

Edit: As an added point, my hands are large enough for the Note.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 all the way.

I will never ever buy another HTC product again after my crappy HTC Sensation kept lagging and crashing.

Galaxy Note 2.... either that or wait out for the next Nexus rumored to release later this year.

According to my research, the next Nexus isn't going to be all that impressive, and the Note 2 will be much more worth it.

According to your research? There are no information released about the next Nexus device but a couple of rumors which are unyet to be confirmed.

I buy Nexus devices for the stock Android experience and for FAST updates coming directly from Google and not receiving them 4-5 months later.
If fast OTAs and unlockable bootloaders via fastboot is not impressive then I don't know what would impress you.

Roms? lachen.gif

Also sucks that your HTC Sensation "lagged." I've never seen a dual core phone handled by a competent person with a good rom on it lag. lachen.gif

The HTC One X is sexy, but the Note 2 also looks good. I guess if you want the massive screen on the note 2 go for that one. The Note 2 has 2GB of ram though and a s-pen if you're into that.

The s-pen has wacom technology and is a lot better than the pen that came with the first note. Not a selling point for me as I already have a wacom tablet and I doubt it will be as good. Still, it will be with me most of the time when my wacom stays at home so if it works it will get more use.

I personally don't use stock, and just stick to CM10. ROMs are important too, but honestly if you say that you can get any other phone and then just use custom ROMs.

It won't be 100.00% stable out of the oven because it requires porting, possible drivers incompatiblities and so forth. That's why when CM10 for other devices other than Nexus devices (or even any other ROM) they come with broken WiFi, Bluetooth, etc; whereas, Nexus devices ROMs are stable out of the bat because they are compiled off AOSP and Google releases binaries for the latest Android version as well as kernel source asap.

I saw a Galaxy Note II unboxing video though
Looks like it will be a big seller, I would go with the Galaxy Note II; although, it really depends when it releases in the states. It's going to be REALLY REALLY close to the next Nexus release, so if anything you might want to just wait for the Nexus press release to compare the two and you can decide what you want to do from that point.

I love my Sensation... what rom are you using? Stock rom is horrible. Flash another rom on your phone and it will come alive.

You mean... Sense UI is horrible, stock Android is the way to go. That's why in the posts above I praised stock Android so much, native ICS is so beautiful compared to what manufacturers do to their phones. Although TouchWiz doesn't look all that bad after replacing it's Launcher with Apex Launcher or Nova Launcher.

I prefer CM10 over AOKP. Not a fan of the unicorns.
