Aaron gets up close and personal with the HTC One X and AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note, two of the hottest Android smartphones on the market. The global HTC One X offers a 1.5 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, 4.7-inch qHD 720p (HD) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,800 mAh non-removable battery, and Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4, all in a sleek body. The Galaxy Note bridges the gap between phone and tablet and offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD (1280p) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing shooter, 2,500 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0.
Both bring some killer specs to the table, but only one can take home the crown. Will it be the Galaxy Note with its S Pen and large HD display, or the One X with its unibody construction and Ice Cream Sandwich build? We'll figure it out. Part 1 of 2.
