HTC One X+ vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Now this is the match-up that I have been waiting for. The HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Both are amazing smartphones with amazing abilities, but there can only be one winner.
The HTC One X+ is a 4.7 inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels and 312ppi. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 120 and 267ppi. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a bigger display but the HTC One X+ looks better and handles sunlight viewing better.
The HTC One X+ is clearly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. No matter what you say, the HTC One X+ is easier to use in one hand. I love bigger screen sizes but at some point we all have to say that enough is enough. They both have great design aspects but the HTC One X just feels more sturdy compared to the plastic feel of the Note 2.
The HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 both have 8MP cameras with all sorts of features. The difference is in the from with the Galaxy Note 2 having a 1.9MP camera and the HTC One X+ having a 1.6MP camera. I have used the cameras from Samsung and HTC. HTC has much better camera technology even with the .3MP difference. It is odd, I know, but it is true.
Both smartphones will come running Jelly Bean, so there is no contest there. The processors are also to close to call. The HTC One X+ will have the Tegra3 1.7GHz quad core LTE processor and the Samsung Galaxy Note will have a Exynos 4412 Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9. The big difference here is that the HTC One X+ will be able to play Tegra games.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with 2GB of RAM and "up to" 64GB of internal memory. Add that to the microSD slot that Samsung has given us and it wins against the HTC One X 1GB of RAM. But the HTC One X+ comes with 64GB of internal memory (not an option).
On to the battery. The HTC One X+ has a 2100mAh battery and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a 3100mAh battery. I know that you think the Note 2 has won this round but you have to remember that screen size and nanometer size comes into play here. Since the Samsung Galaxy Not is 4.5inches, we could possibly see equal battery life from both smartphones.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note comes out on top a few times it is still lacking in what would push it over the edge and beat the HTC One X+. Between the better feel, style and build of the HTC One X+, I would say that it is the winner. Not everyone will agree but that is what is great about opinions... everyone can have one even if it is different than yours.
