If the first two smartphones were launched at the beginning of this year, being quite fresh on the market, HTC One is, let’s say, a veteran (it was released in 2013). Though, if we compare it with Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Sony Xperia Z1, the differences aren’t very noticeable. But let’s compare the specifications of the three devices and see which one is perfect for you.
Display and designs
In the order of display sizes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is the champion, having a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED and a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. On the second place is the Sony Xperia Z1, with a 5 inch TFT capacitive touch screen and a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, while the HTC One has the same resolution, but it was designed to have a 4.7 inch Super LCD3 capacitive touch screen.
Even if the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo has the largest display, it doesn’t make it the heaviest phone. Its dimensions are 148.4×77.4×8.6 mm, but it weights 162.5 grams. The paradox is that the Sony Xperia Z1 has these dimensions: 144x74x8.5 mm and it weights almost 8 grams more. Weighting 143 grams, the HTC One has these dimensions: 137.4×68.2×9.3 mm.
Hardware and operating systems
Samsung equipped their Galaxy Note 3 with a quad core 1.3 GHz cortex A7 + dual-core 1.7 GHz cortex A15 processor + Exynos 5260 chipset, having an internal memory of 16 GB, but you can expand it by up to 64 GB.
At this chapter, the Sony Xperia Z1 stands better, because it comes with a 2.2 GHz quad core krait 400 processor + Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset and 16 GB of internal memory. Just like Galaxy Note 3, Xperia Z1 allows you to expand its internal memory by up to 64 GB.
The HTC One has a 1.7 GHz quad core krait 300 processor + Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 chipset. Its internal memory is higher, 32 GB, but there is no Micro SD slot for adding more memory.
The three smatphones have three things in common: they run on the Android platform (Jelly Bean o.s.) and have 3 GB of RAM.
The Sony Xperia Z1 will blow your mind when you’ll see the quality of the photos taken with this phone. It has a 20.7 MP primary camera (autofocus and LED flash) and a 2 MP secondary camera. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo won’t disappoint you, either, because it has an 8 MP primary camera (autofocus and LED flash) and a 2 MP secondary camera. Anyway, the HTC One has a 4 MP primary camera (autofocus, LED flash and optical image stabilization), and a 2.1 MP secondary camera.
