The HTC One prevailed against the Samsung Galaxy Note II in yesterday’s matchup (70-percent to 30-percent). Next week, we will see the LG Nexus 4 vs. the HTC One. Today’s winner will match-up will go up against the winner of the Samsung Galaxy S4, Kyocera Torque pairing.
The third match-up in our Mobile Madness random pairing of mobile devices is the Asus PadFone vs. the Samsung ATIV Odyssey. The device match-ups were chosen at random through a very sophisticated selection process. The AsusPadFone comes paired with a station that converts the phone to a tablet, we will focus on the specifications of the phone only. This pairing is our first that pits differing operating systems, so it should be interesting to see the results.
