Complain as some people might, smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. Nothing exemplifies that fact more than phablets like the HTC DLX (or other variants, such as the J Butterfly), Samsung Galaxy Note II, and LG Optimus Vu II. Packing 5"+ displays, powerful CPUs, and 2GB of RAM, these phones aren't for your grandmother.
Left to right: HTC J Butterfly (Japanese variant of the purported DLX), Samsung Galaxy Note II, and LG Optimus Vu II. Not to scale.
|DLX||Note II||Vu II|
|CPU||Quad-core (Snapdragon?)||Quad-core Exynos||Dual-core Snapdragon|
|Cameras (F, R)||8?12? MP, 2MP||8MP, 1.9MP||8MP, 1.3MP|
Obviously, they're not for everyone. But if you were going to buy one, would it be your carrier's version of the DLX, the Note II, or the Vu II?
