Previewing the sample images snapped by each handset’s 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, it’s nearly indistinguishable at first to say which is the superior between the two, but after meticulously combing over them, there isn’t a definitive standout winner. In all honesty, they exhibit the same level of quality with most shots, but the LG Nitro HD is better able to compensate exposure when shooting against the sun – whereas the Galaxy Note LTE has a tendency to overexpose brighter areas. Meanwhile, indoor under artificial lighting, we prefer the punchier colors produced by the Galaxy Note LTE versus the bland tones of the Nitro HD. Either way, we’re content by the results and they’re more than worth it for a 4” x 6” print out.

Concurrently, we can say the same thing with their 1080p video recording quality seeing they share many characteristics – like their smooth recording, clear audio quality, and pleasant details. However, the LG Nitro HD exhibits more artifacing when panning very quickly, which isn’t much of an issue for the Galaxy Note LTE. Aside that one qualm, there isn’t anything particularly dramatic to justify one is supremely better than the other.

Catching the shine in our eyes, we prefer the LG Nitro HD’s music player for the single reason that it features a very glitzy looking presentation when it’s placed in landscape. Oppositely, the Galaxy Note LTE’s offering follows in line to the usual conventional approach, which lacks any significant eye candy to reel us in. Setting them at their loudest volumes, there isn’t one that’s more blistering with their tones, but overall, they’re sufficient in being pleasant sounding.

Mainly for its overly generous size, our eyes are particularly more attracted to the beautiful glow of the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE’s display when watching high-def videos. Well, you can’t count out the LG Nitro HD as well, with its fancy True HD IPS display and all, but it doesn’t quite have the allure and sheer magnitude exhibited by its rival.

I don't understand why any company doesn't wish too make "good" small phones even if they are thicker.

The Nitro HD is hardly Chris Jericho, more like The Rock :)

Samsung have really done a lot of tweaking on the software side. The browser seems to be much smoother with or without exynos. IPS are really good displays but they are so reflective. I hope the 4X have improved. The Note is definitely the winner here.

I remember when ufc first came out, you never know who you're going fight with. As the ufc became more popular and become a true sports, rules had to be applied. I'd love to see Brock Lesner against St. Pierre but just not right and we know why! Fedor against overeen would be breath taking!

I don't know about you but the display on LG looks nicer to me...and I don't have huge hands so I don't feel comfortably with NOTE and this is why I would go with LG...

The biggest difference between both phone is size!! Most of AT&T would go with the Nitro HD, but for Big Men like me, you go with the Note. One thing is for sure, AT&T customer wont be disappointed with either one!!

Samsung said their goal is to sell 10 million of these. Hurry up and release it on all major carriers so you can hit the 10 million mark by 2013. I want the Note but I'm with Verizon and not switching as of right now until further notice.

The video capture looked pretty horrible on the Nitro in the video. The cars looked like they were skipping, like the frame rate was really low. Am I the only one who saw that?
