Droid DNA has a 1080p display, the same resolution as a full HD TV, but all in a 5-inch display. This gives the device the highest PPI of any smartphone as of its release. Of course, if the phone looks familiar, it's because its based off of HTC's Japanese release, the J Butterfly.

Description

Physically the HTC One X+ is indistinguishable from its predecessor, altering only its color scheme and Beats insignia, but internally it includes a larger 2,100mAh battery, 64GB of storage, and a more potent 1.7GHz Tegra 3 processor.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the successor to the popular Galaxy S II Android smartphone and is upgraded in almost every way from its predecessor. It features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II, successor to the famously huge Galaxy Note, ups the ante with an even larger 5.5 inch screen. Like other Samsung Note products, it's built with stylus use in mind, with several OS enhancements to support it. Additionally, the Note II's hardware has been redesigned to resemble that of the Galaxy S III.
