Oh man…the new kid on the block has been garnering plenty of praise and adulation from the masses, and from the looks of it, rival handsets are finding it very difficult to compete with something so massive – literally! Cementing itself as a top-contender on AT&T’s lineup, the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE has captivated our attention thanks to its killer specs, but most importantly, its uncanny size for a smartphone is undeniably its trump card. Before its arrival, the LG Nitro HD pushed the envelope with its then above-average sized 4.5” True HD IPS display, but as we’ve all come to realize, it’s pales in comparison in size against the obnoxiously large display of the Galaxy Note LTE. Regardless of that, it’s still quite a lovable handset on its own, especially now it’s priced at under $100, so let’s find out how these two juggernauts stack against one another.
Over 2 months ago, the LG Nitro HD reaffirmed that 4G LTE smartphones could be manageable in size, even with super-sized displays in tow, but it was in fact bearing one of the largest footprints of any 4G LTE smartphone at the time. Well, it’s evident that’s not the case anymore, as the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE takes it to the next level with its ridiculous dimensions. Visually, there’s nothing whatsoever that stands out with their designs, seeing they’re both constructed out of all plastic, boast streamlined bodies, and sturdy construction. However, what’s apparent is the sheer size of the Galaxy Note LTE, which makes it the harder device to wield with one hand – whereas, it’s not a disturbing nuisance with the Nitro HD. At the same time though, it’s the size of the Note that draws us in more into it than the Nitro HD.
