Samsung Galaxy Note 2 VS. HTC Droid DNA.

Both of these devices have proven to be beasts in the current generation of smartphones. They both have their unique appearances and features and we are about to get through them to see which one comes out to be a better choice.

To start, I will like to compare the physical features and appearance. The Galaxy Note 2 has dimensions of 151.1 x 80.5 x 9.4 mm and a weight of 183 g while the Droid DNA has dimensions of 141 x 70.5 x 9.7 mm and a weight of 141.7 g. From this detail, we can point out that the Droid DNA is smaller and lighter but the Galaxy Note 2 is slightly thinner.

The Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 and a pixel density of about 267 ppi while the Droid DNA has a 5.0-inch Super LCD3 display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a density of about 441 ppi. One can assume that since the Note 2 has a bigger screen, then more content can be viewed on-screen. I cannot totally submit to this conclusion. The Droid DNA has a 1080p display packed into that 5-inch screen and when you do things like browsing web pages or reading documents, you find that the Droid DNA gives more details than the Galaxy Note 2.  Since the Droid DNA uses Super LCD3, the colors may not be as sharp as the Note 2 but it definitely has the advantage under high light conditions such as using the device outdoors.

The Droid DNA has a rear-facing 8.0 MP camera which can capture 3264 x 2448 pixels of images and record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. It also has a 2.1 MP front-facing camera that can also record 1080p videos. The Galaxy Note 2 has a similar rear-facing camera but a 1.9 MP front-facing camera. The Galaxy Note 2 can record 1080p videos but cannot be played back with full quality since it does not feature a 1080p display. However, the HTC Droid DNA can back it up with its gorgeous display.

Both devices have 2GB of RAM. The Note 2 comes in 16, 32, and 64 GB models while the Droid DNA comes only in a 16 GB model. A disadvantage of the Droid DNA is the absence of a microSD card slot. This seems to be a point for the Note 2.

The two devices run on Android Jelly Bean and are both Quad-Core devices with the Note 2 having a frequency of 1.6 GHz and the Droid DNA having a frequency of 1.5 GHz. The Note 2 has a 3100 mAh battery which is obviously better than the DNA’s 2020 mAh battery.

Based on every detail pulled out from both devices, I guess it’s quite difficult to immediately point out which one is better. If you want a bigger screen with a high level of multi-tasking, the Note 2 is the thing for you. If you want something not as big as the Note 2 with a stunning 1080p display and high power, the Droid DNA should be your target.

Also, you may decide to pick one based on exterior design. The Note 2 has a basic, yet premium design but I personally prefer the Droid DNA’s exterior though I am a ‘Note person’.

What can I say ? Both devices are great. Each has a lead in a specific field. It all depends on exactly what you want and what suits you well.

  3. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. With thanks

  4. In tems of ‘wow’ factor, the Droid DNA is appropriate up there
    with Nokia’s Lumia 920, and it really is easily one from the stars of
    2012. Copy and paste support is one of those
    features that should come standard with all operating
    systems because it makes moving content around that
    much easier. You can zoom with a pinch of the fingers which removes one of the final advantages of the i – Phone.
