When it comes to the size of the screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note definitely comes out on top thanks to a 5.3 inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology. In fact, this is the largest smartphone touchscreen available, and has caused many people to see the handset as a tablet rather than a normal smartphone. The large size of the screen is of course beneficial to many different types of user as it lends itself to everything from multimedia use (watching movies and playing games) to productivity tasks such as editing spreadsheets which is of course easier on a larger screen compared to doing the same task on a smartphone with a screen of, say, 3.5 inches. This is especially true when you use the S-Pen, which is a specially designed stylus pen for use with the Samsung Galaxy Note and stores in a hole in the top the device when not in use. This feature is unique among smartphones and contributes to the potential versatility and functionality of the handset.
While the screen of the HTC One X is slightly smaller than that of the Galaxy Note, at 4.7 inches, display quality is definitely the order of the day with this handset. A pixel resolution of 720x 1280 within the confines of the 4.7 inch screen means that a higher pixel density is created, rivalling that of the retina display on the iPhone 4S. This phone has Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen technology, making this the first HTC Android phone to boast this type of screen. Although this technology is different to the Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy Note the benefits are similar; on both phones you can expect excellent display quality, wide viewing angles, consistent brightness and great colour rendering and light representation.
Obviously, the Samsung Galaxy Note and the HTC One X are very different phones, and although there are differences in their screens they both make a great choice for different reasons. If you had to choose between these phones based on their screens, it would likely come down to the large size of the Galaxy Note or the superior display quality of the HTC One X.
