Nearly every phone maker out there has a tablet to offer. But the fact is that whatever size you want and whatever screen you like - Samsung most likely have it...

Now in HD: Galaxy Nexus vs. Optimus LTE screen shootout

GSMArena team, 13 January 2012

Done pushing megapixels and well into pixel popping, still the good old numbers game. HD screens are the next big thing and they'd better enjoy it while it lasts, with quad-core around the corner and all. Anyway, is it just another number to brag...
