If you're on AT&T and you're looking for a hot Android phone, this is the dogfight battle for you.  Aaron throws the Samsung Galaxy Note and the HTC Vivid into the ring.  Both phones offer 4G LTE connectivity for fast downloads, and are available now.  The Galaxy Note offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display (1280x800 pixels), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 2,500 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0.  The HTC Vivid sports a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch qHD display (540x960 pixels), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, front-facing camera, 1,620 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0.

They're both packing nice feature sets and 4G LTE connectivity, but only one can win the battle.  Which will it be?  Part 1 of 2.

Paulie McLovinn SGS2 Skyrocket = Best on the market at the moment
KoDy Designed ByCrime Samsung Galaxy Note
Daniel Rivera HTC Vivid because the Samsung Galaxy Note is wayyy tooooo biiig like a tablet!!!!!!!
Kerstin Anderson HTC VIVID!!!!!!!!
David Castro The Samsung Note would be my choice
Nathan Allen The vivid is the best but its cheaply made
Huey Liggins Note. The only Phone Competing with the Note is the nexus. It's really hard to decide but the note has slightly better specs than the nexus. Also nexus Is on expensive Verizon so yeah I'm gettin the note pretty soon
David Sabillon Not even close. Note all the way from someone who has had both.
Kirk Ngo Samsung Note
Ethan Shrago That's a horrible dogfight
Mohd Helmy Mahat samsung galaxy note all the way.
William Wadsworth AT&T is way too expensive. The note is pretty cool, but it may be too big.
Joel Diaz HTC TB!!!
Eduardo Ordaz Man hope the note gets to sprint.
Norman Chan at&t sucks go verizon
Keith Ainsley You mean the company who says they have more 4g coverage but you never see it?
Eduardo Ordaz 4S is the ip5.
Christopher Williams The unreleased iPhone 5!!!
Anthony Bailey That's funny, James Watts, every professional and personal review says otherwise. HTC Sense >>>>> TouchWiz. TouchWiz looks like something that would be found on a touchscreen Nintendo Gameboy from 1991. There's a reason why you're always hearing reviewers gushing about Sense and not even a peep about TouchWiz.
Tyler Tresenrider It's not out yet but the Nokia lumia 900
Shawn Poling Note just went today
James Watts Note sense blows touchwiz is the man!!!!!!! And yes im on the gnote. HTC owners are just jealous.
Mitch Evans At&t blows.
Anthony Bailey I just don't understand how THE worst mainstream cellular network in America, keeps getting first dibs at the newest and best phones. I guess that's what happens when you have hoards of blind Crapple iSheep flocking to an inferior network to buy an antiquated iPhone. Verizon and/or Sprint would make more sense to have the Galaxy Note.
Paul Ledbetter Love my Vivid. It's solid, quick, excellent camera, good battery life, gr8 wifi range & call quality, no problems. Samsung's are very cheaply made, and I hate the greenish tint to their over-rated screens and their harsh colors. I personally wouldn't ever buy another nor recommend the brand. They don't even have a status LED. Sense kicks TouchWiz's arse.
Tito Velazquez How stupid are you gonna look after you put an otterbox case on the note and it looks like your talking into your laptop
Jay Ortiz LG Nitro HD and it is now only $99
Kyle Cordiano coming from a Galaxy S II with 4G, the best LTE on AT&T is the Note.
Richard Allen Yarrell Be serious NOTHING beats the GALAXY NEXUS ON VERIZON and the GALAXY NOTE ON AT&T..
Nikole Gentilquore As a Vivid owner AND AT&T representative, absolutely the Note.
Nick Costanzo I'm commenting from my skyrocket... So skyrocket.
Tito Velazquez Vivid hands down
Eduardo Ordaz Both. I might want to use sense.
Justin DesRoches Vivid is cheaply made. Especially for a HTC.
Paul Davis HTC Vivid is 99$ at best buy, Note is 299$... ummm...
Allyson McAtamney Note would definitely win this one. But between the note and the skyrocket, the skyrocket would win because the note is just a little too big in my opinion.
Frankie Mora Jr. technobuffalo!
Frankie Mora Jr. stupid ass comparison
Jeff Hollins Skyrocket
Kevin Ford Hands down the Note
Baldus Maximus Note easily
Brandon Kassab Galaxy nexus on vzw
Gordon Christie Note hands down
