As consumers, there are several factors that we consider when looking for a product such as gadgets. The same is true with smartphones. Among the factors that we consider are high resolution of the display, fast speed of the processor, long life of the battery, and many others. These are things that Smartphone companies also know and take into consideration. That is why they keep on creating new models that they hope can address the needs of the consumers. Among these companies are Asus and HTC.
Early this year, both companies have also released their respective flagship phones in 2013. Asus has announced Asus PadFone Infinity in February and was released April. On the other hand, HTC announced HTC One in February and was released the next month. So, to know which one is better below are its specs and features worthy of consideration.
Which one offers better Visual Experience?
The PadFone Infinity has a screen size of 5.0 inches. It has 1080 x 1920 pixels and 441 PPI pixel density. The type of the display is IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors. The HTC One, on the other hand, has a screen size of 4.7 inches. It has 1080 x 1920 pixels and 469 PPI pixel density. The type of the display is Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors also. With these numbers, it is apparent that the PadFone Infinity has a slight edge in terms of having the bigger screen size. As you know, a bigger screen size also contributes in delivering a better visual experience. However, the HTC One has the slight edge in terms of having the higher PPI pixel density. The pixel density also contributes in creating more vivid images. Having said all these, the HTC One has a slight edge over PadFone Infinity.
Which one has Faster Processing Speed?
The PadFone Infinity has the Android OS, v4.2 (Jelly Bean) as its operating system. The CPU is quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait while the GPU is Adreno 320. The chipset it has is Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600. On the other hand, the HTC One has the Android OS, v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) as operating system. It can be upgraded to v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). The CPU is quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 while the GPU is Adreno 320, too. The chipset it has is also Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600. Apparently, the two phones don’t much have to differ. The HTC One has a very slight edge as it has a slightly higher version of the operating system. With all these, it can be confidently said that the two have almost the same processing speed.
Which one has Better Camera?
The PadFone has a 13 MP back camera with 4128 x 3096 pixels, autofocus and LED flash. The features are geo tagging, touch focus and face detection. The secondary camera is 2 MP. The HTC One, on the other hand, has a 4 MP back camera with 2688 x 1520 pixels, autofocus and LED flash. The features are 1/3″ sensor size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo tagging, face and smile detection and optical image detection. The secondary camera is 2.1 MP with HDR. With these, it seems that the PadFone has a better camera even if the HTC One has the most features.
Considering all this, it seems that the Asus PadFone Infinity is the better one.
