Confrontation: HTC Vigor vs New Nexus Prime Specs

As the new iPhone 4S handset enters the smartphone market, our attention turns to yet another from HTC and Samsung, the Vigor and the Galaxy Nexus or Prime as its still being called. This week has been a roller-coaster of a week with Apple’s fifteen month wait coming to a stand still with its announcement of the new iPhone 4S. A day after, the world of technology was shocked and saddened by the loss of Steve Jobs whose funeral was reported to have taken place yesterday.

Today with his legacy left behind we wonder how future Apple devices will fair on the market? The two in question as we’ve mentioned from HTC and Samsung are pretty big contenders and we wanted to put them side by side to compare their specifications. We have to add at this point that neither have released and dampening news has filtered through, that Samsung have now postponed their Galaxy Nexus/Ice Cream Sandwich OS launch in respect to Steve Jobs.

Running on what is reported to be Verizon’s network, the Galaxy Nexus will be taking over from the Samsung Droid Charge and the HTC Vigor or “Rezound” as it may be called, from the HTC Thunderbolt.

Ok so starting off with the HTC Vigor and its benefits? First up the new HTC is expected to release with a possible 4.5-inch HD touchscreen, although it may come with a 4.3-inch, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Dr. Dre Beats Audio technology, running on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3.4 OS, Verizon 4G LTE network, 8 megapixel rear camera and front-facing, WiFi and connectivity via Bluetooth.

Next up is that of the impressive Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime) with its 4.65-inch Super Amoled curved touchscreen, smaller 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android’s new 4.0 Ice Cream OS, LTE, HSPA, 5 megapixel rear camera and front camera, WiFi, Near Field Communication (NFC), big 1750 mAh battery and so on.

News for the HTC Vigor’s battery size still remains unclear, but it will need to be a vast improvement on the Thunderbolt’s, which caused a whole host of criticism when released. News from gottabemobile.com has opted for a battery size of 1650 mAh which could be seen at the end of September on an accessory listing on Amazon.

Just before we go and we let you decide on the better option, we wanted to remind you that HTC are bringing out the new Sensation XL which only yesterday we compared to Samsung’s very popular Galaxy S II model.

Give us your thoughts on the Vigor and the Galaxy Nexus? You tempted by either?

        1.5GHz dual core. 8MP camera. 1.3MP forward facing camera. 9mm thick. Big battery, but I can’t recall the size, maybe around 2000mA?

          Doubt that highly. I’m sorry but everytime something innovative with android OS happens. Its almost never the BEST thing out its just the newest. The BEST normally waits a couple of months later to show its head once everyone is over the shock and awe of the newest android OS.

    Verizon didn’t get Galaxy SII because they wanted something “more” impressive. The specs of the Nexus Prime with only a 5MP camera and the same processing speed as the Galaxy SII 1.2GHz leaves me to believe the Nexus Prime would be weaker than the S2.
