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.
