HTC One X+ vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus G: spec comparison

HTC One X+ vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus G: spec comparison
The HTC One X+ has just become official and it’s a monster of an Android smartphone. Retaining the gorgeous design of the original One X, it solves most of its predecessor’s problems like the battery life, and it adds an impressive amount of storage and beefed up processor.

Who will it compete against? The juggernaut in the room, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung’s flagship Android baby boy is selling like hotcakes for a good reason, and HTC will definitely have a tough time competing against it. Looking at both the beautiful design and solid spec sheet, though, the company does have what it takes.

Probably the most serious rival that’s yet to come is the LG Optimus G, though. It’s a battle for tech geeks to explore in the sheet below as the two devices both have a spec sheet perfect for mobile gamers. The Optimus G might have an advantage with the quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro chip, and we expect HTC to truly have the answer to that with its next-gen devices.

Which one of the three would you buy?
