Ohh boy. This rumored HTC Nexus 5 just got 100% more plausible. I really don't know what to get.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II or this rumored HTC Nexus 5. MAN why does my life have to DIFFICULT!!!!

You know it's getting to be a tough decision because on one hand the Samsung Galaxy Note II's screen is 5.5" & the RGB 720p Super AMOLED is phenominal. YES I can root it, & I will, ESPECIALLY since the international Samsung Galaxy Note II has ALREADY been rooted.

But on the other hand the HTC Nexus 5 is going to have a minimum 5" 1080p screen with the all mighty Qualcomm quad-core Krait S4 Pro with the Adreno 320 GPU.

Man I just don't know what to do? I think I am going to go with the one that has the larger screen. I have to wait to see if the HTC Nexus 5 is 5.3" or larger because if it's just 5" then the Samsung Galaxy Note II's 5.5" will be in my pocket.

wendygarett, what should I do????? lol

Will you change your mind if I say that...

HTC and nexus will not give you a removable battery and micro sd that you desire to...

Will you immediate pick note 2? :)

You know, that's right. As of RIGHT now the Samsung Galaxy Note II does have a removable battery & can accept up to 64GB microSD card.

Let's pray the HTC Nexus 5 will have that too because if not it will be a BIG disappointment.

Trust me... It won't... I'm 100% sure about this...
But if you think warranty is more important... Then don't root it, pick nexus 5

Samsung doesn't void warrantys for rooting. I bricked one of my sgs2's that way I asked them and they fixed it.

They fix once, but not twice...
To me I will never jailbreak my iDevice tho...
Because I don't trust Apple built quality and I dont trust a clumsy me...

Don't waste your warranty just because of that my friend :)

My sgs2 got bricked because of a bad ROM. Note to self, do not download from an unknown source.

HTC is likely customer if this is true, SS will only use AMOLED, Google is unlikely as Nexus phones never sold well. Oppo does not have brand recognition to mass produce anything.

But they say human eyes can't see the difference when the pixel density is higher than 350 ppi so what is the point of 443 ppi?

Evena hawk eyes won't be able to see the pixels. :D

Honestly though, reading text on it would be like reading high quality text on paper.

what a rediculous thing to have.

1080p? really? You want to push a much much more pixel dense resolution than 720p why? Your eye WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE.. lol. It cant see anything over the low 300ppi, so its all just a waste. For large tablets sure, but for a phone? useless.

Think of all the extra muscle its going to take to use the smartphone. Welcome back to the land of jaggies if they use any of the current chips. 1080p takes a lot of muscle to run, even compared to 720p which is already pretty intensive for mobile uses. Maybe when the A15's come out it would be enough to power it smoothly. Also, think of the battery drainage to power that PPI and keep it lit.
All of a sudden, the Note2's and the Razr Maxx's battery become "standard" batteries and anything less is a half day battery.

No.. you can take your 1080p and keep that. I dont want it. There isnt a single benefit other than telling your friends you have 1080p on a phone. Not a single actual real life benefit.

For once, I have to agree with you remix...
You know most of the tech, and I think you should be one of a PA writers... Just sayin...

That's what Apple has fed to your brain so you don't put the iPhone's PPI head to head with other phone's... of course you can tell the difference between them... But Apple wouldn't want you to know that would they?

So you bought your phone so you can compare it to the iPhone or to actually use and enjoy it? Seriously over 300ppi you won't notice a thing unless the screen has defects, I can't tell on an iPhone 4/4S and I can't tell on a SGS2 either, and I ain't gonna strain my eyes to try to see it, normal viewing distance. This is overkill

No, the human eye cannot distinguish pixels over 300 ppi unless you are a trained professional, it can be seen more easily with a Pentile display, but it is still hardly noticeable.

Also, to insinuate Remix is a brainwashed iOS fan is just ridiculous.

Exellent comment and I agree 100%. 1080p is over 2x the amount of pixels vs 720p. This means that essentially you need 2x the amount of graphics processing just to draw the same frame.

"Hey buddy look at my 1080p screen isn't it SWEEEET!? Also, see how you can stare at the battery meter dropping 1 pixel per second during this HD game? Cool huh!?"

actually it's 4X if you account both dimensions.

(1920*1080)/(1280*720)=2.25
