LG Optimus 4X HD vs Samsung Galaxy S III
In-call audio quality:
in-call audio clarity. Voices are loud and clear on both sides of the line, without any hints of digitizing or distortion. On top of that, the secondary microphone does an excellent job canceling out background noise, regardless of whether we are speaking or not. The LG Optimus 4X HD delivers above average audio quality, but its microphone and earpiece are a rank below those on the Galaxy S III.
There is a pretty good loudspeaker on the S III's back, but the one on the Optimus 4X HD does not impress with its volume. We played back the same YouTube video simultaneously on the two devices and the sounds coming out from the S III could be heard a lot easier. At least the stock ringtones sound equally loud on both smartphones.
Battery life should not be an issue with either of these smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S III comes with a 2100mAh battery, while the Optimus 4X HD is equipped with an even larger 2,150mAh cell. Both handsets are capable of delivering over 11 hours of continuous talk-time on 3G and should last for over a month on stand-by. Furthermore, a full charge should be more than enough to last you through a day of moderate usage.
There is a lot to love about the Samsung Galaxy S III and the LG Optimus 4X HD. Both devices come with powerful, top-end hardware, absolutely no major drawbacks, and will surely serve you well for years to come. The pros with the S III, however, seem to outnumber those of the 4X HD. Samsung's flagship has a better camera, superior in-call audio quality, and we quite like its aesthetic features. Nevertheless, keep in mind that the 720p screen on LG's pride and joy, with its neutral color representation and superior outdoor visibility, outperforms the S III's Super AMOLED HD display, at least from our point of view. Besides, the device itself feels more compact, and is therefore, a bit easier to handle.
