For the past few months, I've been carrying the Samsung Galaxy Note II. It's a big device, but I love the battery life and features - not to mention the latest version of TouchWiz, Samsung's user interface. I find that it brings some fantastic software additions to Android.
The HTC One X+ is HTC's update to the One X, and it brings some nice features to the table, including a 1.7 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, 4.7-inch HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 64 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, and a 2,100 mAh battery. The downside? Unlike the DROID DNA, it only offers 1 GB of RAM. Given how much of a resource hog Sense UI can be, it could be an issue.
I'll spend quite a bit of time in this 30-day challenge analyzing some of the differences between TouchWiz and Sense at length, in addition to hardware differences. If you're looking at Android, you're probably considering Samsung and HTC, as they're the current industry heavyweights. I hope you'll join me for the ride! In the meantime, tweet me your questions (@PhoneDog_Aaron) and I'll do my best to address them in subsequent videos. Let the games begin!
