A Closer Look At The Screen Technology Of The Samsung Galaxy Note And HTC Sensation XL

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 309

The Samsung Galaxy Note and HTC Sensation XL offer two of the largest touchscreens of any smartphones currently on the market. In this article I will compare the screens of both handsets so you can decide which one comes out on top.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is currently the highest spec smartphone on the Samsung roster. A large part of the appeal of this handset is the screen. It measures up at 5.3 inches, and boasts a whopping 800x 1280 pixel resolution and a specially designed 'smart' stylus pen (or 'S-Pen' according to Samsung). In fact, because of the screen's large size many regard the Galaxy Note as the first true smartphone/tablet hybrid. Whatever category you think it falls into, the screen on this device is one of the best out there. The combination of its high pixel resolution, large size and Super AMOLED Plus panel produces fantastic display quality of on screen imagery, and makes the device particularly suited to multimedia use like watching HD videos, photo slideshows, playing games or viewing websites with embedded videos or flash graphics.

The HTC Sensation XL also has one of the largest smartphone screens out there, but at 4.7 inches, it cannot be considered a tablet. The screen is slightly less advanced in terms of its resolution (480x 800), but because the screen is also smaller, it still results on an impressive pixel density of 199 ppi. The screen of the HTC Sensation XL also differs in terms of the screen technology used. Rather than the Super AMOLED Plus panel of the Galaxy Note, the Sensation XL has an S-LCD capacitive screen like the original Sensation and Sensation XE. This technology is well known for its brightness, colour rendering and levels of detail. On paper, the Samsung Galaxy Note comes out on top, thanks to its higher resolution and bigger size, but obviously but everyone wants such a big phone. Unless you are familiar with the intricacies of smartphone screen technology, you are unlikely to notice the difference and surely be impressed with the HTC Sensation XL.

Aside from the screens, both handsets offer impressive spec lists. Both handsets have an 8 megapixel camera, the latest version of Android (via an over the air update) called Ice Cream Sandwich, and powerful processors. The Galaxy Note has a more powerful 1.4GHz dual-core processor, compared to the 1.5GHz single-core processor of the Sensation XL.

Both handsets offer a number of impressive features, but it has to be said that the Samsung Galaxy Note is superior in a number of ways. The HTC Sensation XL though still makes a great choice, particularly for those who want a stylish smartphone with great music playback credentials.
