Who had the best phone

10 years or Marvel movies will culminate to the big daddy of them all, Avengers: Infinity War. This will be the most anticipated Marvel movie because all movies led to this point. As we prepare let’s look back at the Marvel themed Android phones in the past and ask who had the best phone.

   HTC One: Winter Soldier Edition Phone

   Hail Hydra! Winter Soldier not only introduced us to Bucky but also a shocking twist. The ramifications of the twist made its way to the tv show Agents of Shield. Another centerpiece was all the HTC phones in the movie. This was by design as HTC used this movie to promote their special edition Captain America HTC One. Outside of the wallpapers this phone still looked like the standard edition. Still seeing all the HTC phones throughout the movie was a nice easter egg for android fans.

Who benefitted most from the advertisements and product placing, I would say Marvel. Between the word of mouth about how good the movie was and the anticipation at seeing the Winter Soldier, people were going to see this movie regardless. HTC just helped to continue to remind people what day it was in theaters.

Samsung Galaxy S6: Age of Ultron Edition Phones

   The Age of Ultron was the second Avengers movie. The anticipation of seeing Hulk fight the Hulkbuster armor brought people to the screens. Plus with this movie coming off of the excitement of the first Avengers movie and Winter Soldier, there was a lot of momentum in Marvel’s favor.

This would have been a great marketing opportunity for Samsung but it was not released to the public. If those phones did exist they were either prototypes or special edition for top executives. But if these phones were made available for the public they would have made for some awesome looking phones. Though customers could not buy the phones they were able to install custom made Avengers themed wallpapers and icon packs off of the Samsung store.

This was not an actual phone but a fan concept

By default HTC wins because they actually had a phone out on the market for customers to purchase. But if we were to go by design I like Samsung’s much better. Having phones with the wallpapers and color palettes themed after an Avenger was a cool design. Plus I truly think there are a few of theses phones that were made for concept that are locked away in a vault somewhere.

Who had the best phone, HTC or Samsung?
