Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X: Which one do you prefer?
We are sure that many a people out there are currently wondering which Android smartphone to get - the awesome Samsung Galaxy S III, or the fantastic HTC One X. And then we know there are those who would just love to be able to express their opinion on which Android smartphone is the best right now.

So we decided to turn to our friendly office mascot, Mr. Bajangles, who's a stuffed monkey, by the way, and ask him what we should do about it...

PA - "Hey, Mr. Bajangles," we said, "what a fine day for blogging today, eh?"

Mr. Bajangles - "What do you want, you bockhead?"

PA - "Geez, someone's gotten out of the wrong side of the bed today, huh?"

Mr. Bajangles - "Yeah, and you stink!"

PA - "Alright, listen... we've been thinking about those people wondering which Android superphone they should get - the Galaxy S III, or the One X, you know?"

Mr. Bajangles - "....?"

PA - "So we wanted to ask you to give us an idea what we should do to help them out!"

Mr. Bajangles - "Well, why don't you just post a poll, and let everyone do the job for you?"

PA - "Mr. Bajangles... you are one smart monkey!"

And so, shortly after we had our little talk with Mr. Bajangles, here it is, our poll, which lets all of you guys share your opinion on which phone you think is the better one - the Galaxy S III, or the One X. Let's see which Android handset is the people's champion right now!

Both are great phones but the removable battery and micro-sd slot on the galaxy s3 is what puts it head for me. But the htc x one is still a sexy phone. I wonder how good the htc x one plus will be now.

Yeah, I quite don't get the lack of micro-sd functionality; may as well have an iPhone for that matter. Get with it HTC or join Microsoft.

You guys kill me. What would being able to remove the battery or having an SD card slot have to do with the Samsung being better? Why would you want to remove the battery anyway? I have the HTC OneX and I can tell you that it's heads and shoulders better than the Samsung. Everybody knows that Samsung phones have TERRIBLE build quality. They are totally plastic. They also are VERY SLOW in getting updates. HTC and google gets updates FASTER than anyone. When HTC One X gets the jellybean...The Galaxy S3 will still be running the ICS. Oh Yeah...let's not forget how Samsung copy others...just ask Apple. LOL!!! what's going to happen to you getting updates after Apple sue the pants off Samsung for attempting to steal their pattern of the Iphone??? Stay tuned!

It's not that SGS3 better with those features... It's just that majority of the consumers want those features. I could do without those features, that's why I picked my HOX, but there are more people wanting those features picking the SGS3 instead. Other than that... HTC marketing sucks!

1. Samsung do not have bad build quality. The plastic is polycarbonate - the same stuff used fot the One X's body, just with a gloss finish.
2. Samsung do not get slow updates. Both GS3 and One X run Android 4.1
3. Yes, Apple does sue Samsung constantly, but that's just because Apple guys are d*ckheads. Please don't tell me you are stupid enough to believe that Samsung actually copied Apple

I couldnt make my mind up between the 2 for weeks, but in the end it was the non removable memory which swung me away from HTCmy last 4 phones were by HTC. Not sure why they have decided to go this route.

Galaxy S3 is better no doubt but not by much, I have an S2 and don't see a need to upgrade until A15 based phones start rolling out, there's no apps or games that a dual core phone can't handle with ease

Same here. I was all for upgrading to the S3 but then my S2 received ICS and after that, I lost all desire to upgrade.

I'm pretty sure JB will be the end of the road for updates on this though so I'll be looking forward to a TMO LTE phone next year.

Jellybean on the S3 is awesome. And we dont even have the official version yet.

Well, the One X with Sense 4.1 is supposed to be as fast as the GS3 on ICS, so a One X with Jelly Bean AND Sense 4.1 should be pretty darn fast.

I would vote for One X if it had the aluminum case like One S.

dude you don't understand that eventhough it is made out of poly carbonate it is stranger than galaxy s3

S3 for its connectivity support of USB OTG, including pendrives, portal hard disks, PS3 controller, XBOX 360 controller, and lots more!

1 thumb down for 1 jealous being who doesn't have all the features you mentioned on his/her smartphone. I pity him/her.
