But of course, specs don’t narrate the whole tale, there is something called exclusivity too. Sony Xperia Z Ultra, for instance, is the only one which is waterproof and that supports input from even a pencil.

The Galaxy Note III comes with its own stylus in the form of S-Pen with all of its tricks while the Huawei is easily the cheapest. Acer is a mix of them all and given Acer’s emphasis on competitive pricing, won’t be that expensive either.

Either way, it depends on the end users, that what matter most to them.

  • Huawei Ascend Mate has 4050 mAh! Samsung should have done this with note 3

    • Ahsan

      with the increased battery life; the weight increases!
      you have to make compromise!

      • Umar

        there goes the credibility of it

    • I think it should be 9.9 or something like that 99.9 is not possible

    • Azeem Ullah Hasan

      One freakin’ typo and the allegations start rolling in. Fabulous!
