When you look at the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy Note side by side, one of the first things that you will notice is the difference in size and touchscreens. The Samsung Galaxy Note has the largest smartphone screen on the market, measuring a whopping 5.3 inches. This utilises super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology which has several benefits, particularly when it comes display quality. In order to ensure great display quality is maintained the larger screen, a pixel resolution of 800x 1280 is utilised. The HTC One X has a 4.7 inch screen which is smaller in comparison but still quite large compared to many other smartphones. It has super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen technology and a resolution of 720x 1280 is able to display high definition content.

Processor
The HTC One X is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market in terms of processing power thanks to its 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. It’s one of the first smartphones to utilise this type of processor, and this provides it with excellent performance across all areas of its spec list. The Samsung Galaxy Note has a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, and although this is considerably less powerful it still provides excellent performance, even by the standards of many newer smartphones. Benefits of having ample processing power include (but not limited to) a more responsive touchscreen, fast download times, faster loading and operating times of apps and efficient multitasking.

This is actually a feature where they share several features in common. The camera of both devices has the same resolution of 8 megapixels, and they share several image enhancing features in common. They are also able to capture video footage in a number of different resolution settings, the maximum of which is 1080p.

Operating System
The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy Note are both Android operated smartphones. However, they both run different versions of the software. HTC One X is the first HTC smartphone to showcase the new ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ version, whereas the Galaxy Note (on account of it being an older phone) has the previous version, also known as ‘Gingerbread’, but can be upgraded to the new version. Both phones run their respective manufacturers’ custom Android interfaces which are HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz.
