Droid DNA vs. Galaxy Note 2 vs. LG Intuition: Spec showdown

LG Intuition vs Droid DNA vs Galaxy note lg samsung htc

HTC and Verizon have announced the Droid DNA, the first smartphone to come with a 1080p resolution to be launched in the USA. Because that screen measures 5-inches though, it’s more of a smartphone/tablet hybrid, which means it’ll be going head-to-head with the current favorite, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and the slightly less popular LG Intuition.

Here’s how they specifications of each big-screen device compare.

The result shows just not only how impressive the Droid DNA is, but also how much it and the Note 2 put the LG Intuition in the shade. Thanks to the Droid DNA’s excellent $200 (with a two-year contract, of course) price tag, the Intuition can no longer claim to be half the price of the other option either.

We’ve already seen the powerful quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip in the LG Optimus G, the Nexus 4, and the Asus Padfone 2, and it’ll easily match Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad inside the Note 2; however, we’re a little concerned by the small battery inside the Droid DNA, especially as it’s non-removable. The lack of expandable memory is a drawback too.

While the Galaxy Note 2’s wide availability will help it stay ahead in sales, on paper, the Droid DNA looks like an incredibly tempting proposition.
