The Smart phone segment has always seen tight competition in the recent past. Almost every manufacturer has a high end Smart phone model in the market today. Smart phones are no longer targeted only for business magnates and company CEO"s. Even youngsters and school children now pocket Smart phones and the number of Smart phones sold every month is always growing on a rapid scale today as compared to 2 or 3 years back. In the present day there are over 50 different models of Smart phones for customers to choose from.
Today we compare two top of the line Smart phones from 2 of India"s most trusted Smart phone makers, Samsung and HTC. The models under comparison are Samsung Infuse 4G and HTC Max 4G.
On comparison both Samsung Infuse 4G and HTC Max 4G are stylish phones with sleek design patterns and large touch screen based displays. But the Samsung Infuse 4G offers one of the largest screen sizes in the mobile industry which stands at 4.5 inches compared to the 3.8 inches of the HTC Max 4G. The HTC phone's display is a resistive type while the Samsung phone has a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen for better visual experience. However the HTC Max 4G has a dedicated graphics engine of 66MB to support 3D, HD and high graphic contents like movies and games.
The camera is one area where the HTC Max 4G is steamrolled by the Samsung Infuse 4G. The Max 4G has only a 3.15 Mega Pixel rear camera and it does not have Flash or a dedicated camera button. It does not even have a secondary front camera. It has video recording but only in normal VGA quality. On the other hand the Samsung Infuse 4G has an 8 Mega Pixel rear camera with Xenon flash and a 1.3 Mega Pixel front camera for video calling. The Samsung model even has 720p high definition video recording capability.
On the connectivity front both the Samsung Infuse 4G and the HTC Max 4G have similar options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB PC sync. But the models vary largely on the network support front. They both support high performance 4G networks but due to unavailability of such technology in India it is not a USP of both. However the HTC fails to provide 3G network support unlike the Samsung Infuse 4G which offers high speed 3G internet access.
Both the models have all sorts of multimedia playback features. The last factor is the price. The HTC Max 4G is priced at Rs 45000 whereas the Samsung Infuse 4G will cost anywhere between Rs 35000 and Rs 38000. So it is clear that the Samsung Infuse is the better model as it offers better features at a more reasonable price.
