Between the imminent release of the HTC EVO 3D, the newly announced Photon 4G, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II, and the pure Google experience of the Samsung Nexus S 4G, we have to ask - which device is next for you? To help you decide, here's a break down of each phone's specs:
HTC EVO 3D
- 4.3 Inch qHD Super LCD
- 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
- 1GB RAM
- 4GB built-in storage
- 5MP 3D Capable rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
- Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0
As the follow up to the super-popular EVO 4G, it not only packs a harder punch under the hood, but also includes some groundbreaking features like Sense 3.0 and the inclusion of both 3D playback and video capture. HTC's recent update to its bootloader policy doesn't hurt this bad boy's chances of success, either.
Motorola Photon 4G
4.3 Inch qHD display
1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
16GB built-in storage
8MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
Android 2.3 with MotoBlur
Web-top and global ready
Just announced today, the Photon has some features that are unmatched, like the enterprise-level security (thanks to the newest version of Blur) and its ability to connect to Bluetooth game controllers (like the Wiimote) right out of the box.
Samsung Galaxy S II
- 4.3 Inch Super AMOLED Plus display
- 1.2GHz Exynos processor
- 1GB RAM
- 32GB built-in storage
- 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front camera
- Android 2.3 with Touchwiz
Even though the Galaxy S II hasn't even been officially announced in the US yet, it's the powerhouse of the group. In terms of processors, the Exynos is is a figurative God among men, making this one hard to beat (once it becomes official).
Samsung Nexus S 4G
- 4 inch Super AMOLED display
- 1GHz Hummingbird processor
- 512MB RAM
- 16GB built-in storage
- 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
- Stock Android 2.3.4
This one is the clear underdog of the competition, and rightfully so, considering its original incarnation appeared well over 6 months ago. It does have its advantages though - namely NFC and pure, stock Android.
