HTC One X vs Galaxy S II vs Note vs Nexus: Benchmark comparison

0. phoneArena 02 Apr 2012, 09:56 posted on

The HTC One X was so anticipated not only because it marks a new beginning for the manufacturer, but also because it feature the brand new quad-core Tegra 3 processor. This being the first phone to hit the market with this chip, it was very interesting for us to compare it against some of the best handsets out there, in terms of benchmark performance...

this doesn't seem fair... S2 with stock ICS gives over 4000 in Quadrant... why is it tested with a GB rom, when ICS is already out, and it that gives the proper scores?

My guess, based on the picture, is that they're using the i777, us att version, of the galaxy s 2, which is still running 2.3.6 because att has not yet pushes an official ics rom.

OK at the risk of sounding like a huge douche, I need to retract that last statement...seems I was dead wrong. Oops.

Amazed.... But if the S2 was rooted and clocked at 1.5mhz, would have been near-nuff?????? Think so.....

benchmark is nothing, what more important is the real life experience....

Very true. Unless you're planning on running AnTuTu to try to impress your friends, real life beats meaningless benchmarks - most made up to make the CPUs or GPUs look good.

For those few pathetic people who are extolling their phones to other geeks because of their benchmark score - you need to get a life.

I agree that real life > benchmarks but no need to get all uptight about it.

This doesn't matter until the One X with the quad core hits the US. So far we will be getting the dual core so give us a dual core rating comparison.

The S4 in the lower end model HTC One S beats Tegra 3. I'm glad the US variant will ship with the S4 instead and have LTE on board!

Yep. Dual-core S4 beat the quad core processor of the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL or whatever, which was claimed to be the fastest.
Now it's just S4 vs Exynos.

The One X is a definite game changer.

I completely agree with you about the GS3. That's the phone I really want. Currently, I have the Epic Touch 4G and I love it, but I seriously doubt that Sprint will be getting the GS3 anytime soon. My guess is later in the year. Until then, I'll be getting the EVO 1 to hold me over. Hopefully, the EVO 1 will be quad-core. Every article that Phonearena has put out says the E1 will be dual-core. If it's not quad-core, I won't be getting it.

You must have deep pockets to buy one phone and then buy another one only 3 months later. Deep pockets and little patience.

I wouldn't say that I have deep pockets. I have a good job and I work hard for the things that I want. I usually buy two phones a year. That's only $800 a year if you really think about it, considering I get up to $130 for my trade ins.

Fair enough. You sound like you would be a good candidate for the Best Buy Buyback Program. At your rate of adoption, you would be able to get back ~$300 per phone trade in. I'm mostly glad you don't buy apple. Nice avatar btw.

Why didnt this review have the skyrocket in the review rather than the regular s2? And this test should really say non U.S market HTC one x. So not to be confused with the one were actually getting. Then benchmark them all again when they actually get a version of it to test.

The Galaxy S2 they are using has outdated firmware. It's not even the latest version of Gingerbread...this test is unfair and inaccurate.

The S2 with an uptodate ICS ROM and Siyah Kernel clock in at around 4300+ on quadrant.
Its pretty awesome sans the bloatware
