Released around the same time last year, Samsung’s Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus were, at the time, two extremely impressive touch screen phone on the market. Even with a number of manufacturers asserting their advanced new flagship samsung s20 ultra phones recently, they can still hold their own thanks to their impressive specifications lists. In this article I will look at the similarities and differences of some of the devices’ key features.
The Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note boast some of the best touchscreens out there in terms of their answers as well as the Super AMOLED capacitive technology. Only recently have we seen competitors offering similar screens on their cell phones. The Sony Xperia S, and a number of HTC phones like the HTC One X which was recently shown at MWC 2012 in Barcelona incorporate the same answers and technology located on the screens of the Nexus and Galaxy Note. At 720x 1280, the resolution of the Galaxy Nexus is able to display HIGH-DEFINITION content like movies and games, while the same is true of the Galaxy Note, which even sports a higher pixel resolution of 800x 1280. Amazingly, this increased pixel resolution is on a larger screen, which measures 5. 3 inches wide, making the Galaxy Note something of a hybrid between a touch screen phone and a product. Given the fact that this huge pixel resolution of found on such a large screen means that on paper at least, the Note boasts the most advanced touchscreen of any touch screen phone in the world.
The Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note have impressive rear facing built in old digital cameras. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has a 5 megapixel camera, which can seem a little low for a modern touch screen phone, but improvements in lens technology means that despite its relatively low pixel count is it still capable of capturing high quality still images, and unusually for a 5 megapixel camera can even capture 1080p HIGH-DEFINITION video footage. The Samsung Galaxy Note boasts an 8 megapixel camera, which as you can imagine produces higher image quality. Both phones offer the ability to capture HIGH-DEFINITION video, as well as the standard features such as autofocus, touch focus, image stabilisation, LED flash and face & smile diagnosis.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the first to showcase the newest version of Android os, called Ice Cream Sandwich, while the Note runs the Gingerbread version although it will support an ICS update when it rolls out to compatible cell phones at various points throughout 2012 based on manufacturer.
If you are looking for the best Android os devices out there, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Note are worthy of a place on your shortlist. Both devices offer something not seem in many other devices, and with their advanced screens, innovative operating systems and capable cameras, both make an ideal choice for a range of users.
