Bigger isn't always better, but phone manufacturers still challenge the concept of portability by adding a few inches to devices. When you say phablets, perhaps, three of the most popular Android phone/tablet devices to find in the shelves are HTC One Max, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
From these three, which one do you think has the best specs? Below is the comparison of the three top phablets available:
When it comes to size, the HTC One Max comes in at 164.5 x 82.5 x 10.29mm, weighing 217g. This makes it the heaviest of the three. The lightest and smallest of the three is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, dimensions of 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3mm, with a weight of only 168g. Vital statistics put it at. With the largest screen, the Sony Xperia Ultra is the largest of the three. Measuring in at 179.4 x 92.2 x 6.5mm, it also manages to keep the weight lower than the HTC, at 212g.
The HTC One Max has a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, which is identical to what the HTC One has. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM, while the Sony Xperia Z Ultra has a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
Overall then while all three are certainly powerful the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the most powerful while the HTC One Max is by far the least powerful. As for storage, three of them support microSD expansion.
The HTC One Max has a 5.9 inch 1080 x 1920 display with a pixel density of 373 pixels per inch. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a marginally smaller 5.7 inch 1080 x 1920 display with a pixel density of 386 pixels per inch and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra has by far the biggest display at 6.4 inches. It's 1080 x 1920 for a pixel density of 344 pixels per inch.
All three phablet have the same resolution screen, but the Xperia Z Ultra being the biggest therefore has the lowest pixel density. Size and pixel density aside they're all very high quality screens, so there's little to choose here.
The HTC One Max has a 4 megapixel camera, which allows it to capture more light than conventional cameras, making it impressively good at taking low light shots. It also has a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera and can shoot 1080p video at 30fps. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a 13 megapixel camera alongside a 2 megapixel front facing camera and can shoot 1080p video at 60fps. Sony's Xperia Z Ultra has an 8 megapixel main camera, a 2 megapixel secondary camera and can shoot 1080p video at 30fps.
All three of them have decent cameras. However, in most conditions the Galaxy Note 3 is likely to take the best pictures while for poor lighting the HTC One Max will excel. The camera on the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is solid enough but fails to stand out.
Out of the three, the HTC One Max comes in with a fairly respectable 3300mAh battery. This means that there is a quoted 3G talk time of 25 hours, with 585 hours of 3G standby time. Samsung's Note 3 comes in with a whole 3200mAh battery. This gives you only 21 hours 3G talk and 420 hours standby. As for the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, it comes in with the smallest battery size. This is measured at only 3000mAh, giving it the smallest talk time at only 16 hours. However, the standby time is far more impressive, measured at 820 hours. That's over 34 day, apparently.
Which one will you buy? Well the HTC One Max is both the most expensive and least powerful, though it has a high quality metal build. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looks to be the most powerful but it has the smallest screen and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra has the biggest screen of the 3 at 6.4 inches.
