Will HTC’s Nexus Phone Be Better than LG’s Nexus Phone?

There have been reports floating around the Internet that there will almost certainly be an LG Nexus coming out sometime in November. But we’ve also heard that up to five Nexus devices will be coming out this year as well, from perhaps five different smartphone manufacturers.

If that wasn’t enough to add to the drama, all of them will have their own take on what the perfect Nexus phone should be, which means you’ll have a tough time trying to figure out which phone you should buy.

All Nexus phones will run on stock Android, so there won’t be any trouble choosing there. Where the real tough decision comes in is when trying to decide which hardware to buy.

Currently, we only have leaked specs to look at, but here they are:

The LG Nexus may have the following:

  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core Krait processor
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • Adreno 320 graphics chip
  • 4.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 placed diagonally

The HTC Nexus may have:

  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core Krait processor
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 5.0-inch Super IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080

If these specs are true, it would be very difficult to pick one over the other.

What may sway people toward the HTC Nexus is the screen, which is rumored to have a ppi of 441. To show you how unreal that is, the brand new iPhone 5 only has a ppi of about 326. That’s a lot more pixels!

But other than that, it may just come down to build quality. And to be honest, LG has been out of the smartphone contest for quite some time. Can it really come out on top?

HTC has already proven to us that it can make truly premium devices (although the non-removable battery is a blunder), so it would be safe to say that it could easily take home the gold in the Nexus duel.

We’ll wait and see how the other Nexus devices fair, but it seems like the HTC Nexus could be the phone to get when it releases (if ever).
