We recently gave three devices a home in our forum. Not too long ago, we created a forum for the international Galaxy Note II. Now, it’s time for the US variants. Coming in as the successor to the wildly popular first generation Note, the Note II builds on its predecessor by increasing the screen size and processor speed, while decreasing device thickness slightly to 9.4 mm. Packing a powerful 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, the Note II is certainly no slouch. The fast processor is coupled with 2 GB of RAM, and either 16, 32, or 64 GB of internal storage. The device ships with a modified version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and features extensive Wacom active stylus functionality.
Next up is the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. The device comes in as the flagship device for the late 2012 Droid RAZR line. Serving as the big brother to the recently added Droid RAZR M, the RAZR HD offers a larger and higher resolution 4.7″ 720p Super AMOLED panel and a larger 2530 mAh battery. The rest of the specs, including the 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 and internal memory, remain unchanged compared with the M. All of this is wrapped up in an 8.4 mm, splash-resistant casing.
Finally, we have the Meizu MX. The MX is quite the interesting device. While it features category-leading specifications, many in the western world have never been exposed to the device. Earlier this year, we had our own XDA TV Admin Jimmy McGee gave the device a closer look. Now that kernel source code has been released, we have decided to give it a place here as well. Featuring either a dual-core Exynos 4210 or a quad-core Exynos 4412 (both clocked at 1.4 GHz), its specs trade blows with the flagships of 2011 and 2012. In fact, the processors used are shared with the Samsung own flagships, the Galaxy S II and III. In addition to a fast processor, the device features a 4.0″ 960×640 ASV display, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB ROM, an 8 MP camera, and a 1600 or 1700 mAh battery (depending on model).
