Samsung Galaxy Touch 3 Vs. Htc One Max: Whoever Secures The Phablet Crown?

Both Android-4.3-Phablets have a top equipment and their own specials – S pen here, fingerprint sensor and BoomSound there. Which can assert itself in direct comparison?

We crack at us today two absolute top Phablets and compare them in terms of exterior, the screens, the technology, the cameras, the battery and the Extras.

Round 1: exterior & display

When the dimensions, it becomes clear that the HTC One Max is again a corner greater than that Samsung Galaxy touch 3 comes: the former measures 164, 5 x 82.5 x 10,29 mm, latter 151,2 x 79.2 x 8.3 mm. While note 3 so just yet as one hand can be controlled that,

this is difficult, at the Max as long as there is no unusually large hands. The Max brings significantly more than 168 grams with 217 grams comparatively light note 3 on the scale, making it a real Brummer.

The material, the Phablets give little: a chic art leather back on the other side is fine aluminum on one side.

The 5.7 “-AMOLED display of the note of 3 triggers like the 5.9”-S-LCD display of the One Max in FullHD on both are protected by Gorilla glass 2. Given the high resolution and despite the slightly different pixel density should individual pixels (Note 3: 386,5 vs. One Max: 373,4 ppi) be recognizable at any of the two displays. There are the devices in the Androidpit - comparison at the same level in terms of brightness.Computer base a maximum brightness of around 486 cd / m m², in the notebook check test certifies the One Max but the Bill comes to 3 “only” to no more than 387 square – what is but always still bright enough, cd / m from the unit in the field to be able to read. Androidpit also provides a better viewing angles in the grade 3 screen.

The first round is given the greater convenience just in favor of the grade 3.

While waiting for the HTC one Max with a Snapdragon S600-quad-core processor at 1.7 GHz per core, a still upbeat S800 Snapdragon with 2.3 GHz per core works in note 3. Support there is here a 2 there from a 3 GB large memory. On paper the Bill 3 has the edge so in terms of technology. Nevertheless, Our site in his confrontation means that beautifully liquid running Max and the installed Google Android 4.3 despite the weaker hardware such as in note 3. In terms of internal memory, the situation looks numerically similar, the note 3 offers 32 GB memory, the one either 16 or 32. As Androidpit notes, seven gigabytes in the grade 3 but are occupied by the firmware, at the one only 5 GB.

Look also the camera really can especially in the note, here comes the excellent 13-mega pixel-snapping with CMOS sensor used, that already got some praise in the Samsung Galaxy S4. The ultra pixel camera of the one with f/2.0 aperture, and smart Flash cuts a fine figure in particular in low light conditions, during daylight hours but due to the number of pixels (4 MP) a difference to higher resolution camera modules clear. Strange also that HTC took the optical image stabilizer of the HTC One to the One Max.Both cameras shoot films in full HD resolution. Front cameras exist over here as over there, for the 2.1 MP camera of the One Max there is thanks to the 88 ° wide angle function a little plus compared to the 2.0 MP Frontcam of note 3.

The winner of the second round is still 3 Note that both in terms of processor and camera the Phablet is simply better than the competitor.

Round 3: batteries, tools & interfaces

An important advantage of Phablets compared to ordinary smartphones is the larger and thus often lengthy battery thanks to the larger design. This is true as well both for the 3,200 mAh power donors of note 3 for the 3,300 mAh block of One Max. So this creates note 3 in the ‘ idle ‘ test notebook check, where at the Smartphone is turned on at minimum brightness and minimum load, over 36 hours. The tester with Samsung s Phablet 18 hours could surf on the Internet. The One Max allowed the testers from computer base almost eight hours long videos at 200 cd / m ² brightness. The official instructions of the manufacturer are 3G-Gesprächszeit at the touch and 25 h at the One Max at 21 h. While the battery in the grade 3 is interchangeable, he is firmly installed in the One Max.

 

As for extras, so the Bill offers 3 large pen functions such as air command, Scrapbook, action memo, S note etc., the you in our post “Samsung Galaxy note 3: faux leather and high speed Internet” can read more. There are, however, with BoomSound stereo speakers at the one on the ears, and in a quality that only the HTC one or the HTC one mini offer. Max is also the only Android device that a fingerprint sensor, à la Apple iPhone 5 S has installed. The BlinkFeed message stream is also a neat feature which rises a little off of the Android home screen uniformity. However, given the size of the Max quite, you miss a stylus.

There is a wide range of interfaces on both sides. One finds in two Phablets WLAN 802.11 a / ac / b / g / n, LTE, DLNA, NFC, infrared port, MicroUSB, HDMI (HTC) or MHL (Note 3) and GPS GLONASS.

The third and final round is quite balanced and produces no real winner. Both models offer strong battery, great tools, and comprehensive interfaces support.

Conclusion

We have a winner – the Galaxy touch 3 has earned ultimately prevailed. Also the excellent camera and ultimately more handy exterior towards the One Max was in addition to the better hardware. This can be seen with the luxurious aluminum design, the strong sound and the fingerprint sensor but also quite. The Samsung Galaxy touch 3 is available in black, white and pink, the EIA is €749. The HTC One Max has appeared in silver for € 699 (MSRP).
