Aaron brings the HTC EVO 4G LTE and Samsung Galaxy Note together for a dogfight.  The EVO 4G LTE is a close cousin of HTC's One series and offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 4.7-inch HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel camera with ImageSense and 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, HD voice capabilities (when Sprint rolls out the service later in the year), a 2,000 mAh battery, kickstand, and Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.  AT&T's variant of the Galaxy Note offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 2,500 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0.

They're both unique and offer a ton of features, but this is a dogfight.  Which one is deserving of the PhoneDog gold medal?  Part 1 of 2.

Gabriel Sotomayor Samsung of course, after owning various HTC devices I dislike them and a will not buy another one again, I liked the battery live, screen and light weight in both Samsung phones I've owned, I dislike having a 10 pounds brick after putting a case in my phones

Huey Liggins
Huey Liggins @Anthony Bailey I did just the same and now I have scratches on the bottom of my phone. Doesn't look bad but I loved the look of the phone Nd that scratch bothers me like a nervous tick. And thank god I had a screen protector on it. I picked it up and seen a big gash in the screen. I spazzed out until I pulled the screen protector up and seen the super amoled screen unfazed :-) sorry but the phone isn't as sturdy as some competitors like Motorola. I still love my galaxy note though. Also in white

Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey @Huey Liggins: Samsung has great build quality. I've experienced it for myself. Sadly, I dropped my beautiful white Galaxy Note on hard ass concrete. My phone fell from about 3.5ft and it smacked into the pavement and cartwheeled about three times. I was sure my phone was all scratched up and toast. Remarkably, my phone was still in almost perfect condition. Three of the four corner of my phone were a bit scuffed up and there was the tiniest chip on the front corner of my screen, but otherwise... my screen was in perfect condition and there was absolutely no damage to the back. I was stunned! Try doing that with an iPhone! HTC phones probably wouldn't fair as good, either, even though I did drop my old EVO and there was minimal damage.

Huey Liggins
Huey Liggins Samsung because they can stand up against apple and I love thier products since the galaxy line. Motorola for their tough build quality. HTC is very stylish but phones haven't offered much lately. Number 1 is samsung for what they offer. Too bad thier build sucks. I'm kind of scared to take my note out of its super sturdy case I bought

David Slawter
David Slawter Definitely Motorola. They've been around for a very long time and they make very sturdy and strong devices. And also, they have a much greater antenna than other manufacturers.
Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey Samsung and my Galaxy Note. I used to be a fan of HTC until they turned into one trick ponies, they're phones became too glitchy, and the battery life is atrocious.

George Isenhart
George Isenhart I have been very happy with Samsung, let's see since 2005 I have had a flip phone, the upstage, Galaxy S Epic 4G The Galaxy Tab and now the Epic 4G Touch, otherwise one LG flip phone, and two Palms, the Centro and the Pre, My wife has had the Samsung Seek and presently has the Samsung Replenish, been very happy with Samsung overall. PALM also made great phones, too bad they are out of business. Jan also had two Sanyo flip phones 1 Sanyo texting phone. Overall Samsung has done us proud these last 7 years.
