0. phoneArena posted on 02 Oct 2012, 04:23

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…

Pretty much everyone says the One X has a better design than the S3... Even some S3 owners admit the One X has a better design.

but the s3 feels a lot better in the hand than the one x lol
and that is a fact the s3 is more ergonomic and not so slippery.. and more than 20 mio people dont buy it only for the specs ;-) for my favor the s3 looks better

Huh, you would think the One X's matte polycarbonate would be less slippery than the GS3's hyper-gloss. To each his own on the design front, I personally enjoy HTC's designs over Sammy's.

I agree with you people do agree that the One X is far better looking than the S3, and people love the feel of the body of the One X in hand the only downside of it is that it is indeed slippery.

i bought my SG3 two days ago, and I really regret I did it so late. The device is the best one I ever touched and used.If any one still using HTC One X then i would suggest to replace it with SGS3.There are lots of advance features in SGS3 in which One of my favorite features of the Galaxy S III is the new and improved lock screen. With the latest version of TouchWiz, Samsung has not only included some key shortcut spots on the lock screen, they have also given you the ability to customize them and add your own selection of app shortcuts.Check tutorialhttp://www.careace.net/2012/09/28/how-to-change-or-add-lock-screen-shortcuts-on-the-samsung-galaxy-s-iii/

How old are you? Have you even used a One X+? I find the Nature UI of Touchwiz 5.0 to be kind of hyped, it's also kind of cheesy. And there are also key shortcuts on the One X+, and you can change them too. The display on the One X+ is also better, it has better colors, the S3 has over saturated colors while whites have a blue tint to it, and balance between colors is also messed up. A Super-LCD 2 screen fixes all of that, just except for the fact that blacks are blacker on the S3, but I would rather have nice, and natural bright colors with a pure white rather than cartoon-like colors with the white colors having a bluish tint to it, but just the black being darker.

You must blind lol jk. Personally, I think the One X was already the best looking android flagship on the market and now with the One X+ it has the best specs! Your entitled to the opinion thought.

Just curious why you want 1080p on a 5" screen? can you see pixels on a 4.7" 720p screen? I'm not trying to troll, just curious.

600 ppi should be the long term goal.

isn't 1080p on a 5 inch screen less than that?

In certain areas they all stand out but over all the GS3 is still the phone to beat.

yes at the moment, but we'll see the result when the optimus G arrives in stores.

I see what you mean but, I'd still take the original One X over the SG3. SG3's days as the Android flagship with the best specs are numbered.

One X+ is the best overall for me. LG wins in specs, but for software I would choose the GS3 or One X+ over the Optimus G. And I like HTC's design better than Samsung, so One X+ it is.

'Im glad to see someone think logically........although they could of made it better with the S4 pro and 2gb of ram...........it still is overall better and the design of it is enough to get it over the GS3 and the LG Optimus G......when you really look at it HTC might have failed to deliver a "complete" device but so have LG and Samsung!.......How? by not giving it a the best build quality thats how......And i know that LG has a better build than sammy this time around but the problem with LG would be its UI that would only be for a certain type of people.....which im not found of......and also its still an LG sorry but will their service and updates be on top of their game this year? So the overall winner is HTC no doubt because of updated specs and once again....better build quality

HTC didn't really make it an incomplete device. Have you seen the benchmarks? It gets more than 7,000 in Quadrant and more than 14,000 in Antutu, with the unfinished model, so the final model will score even higher probably. The Optimus G gets the same score in Quadrant and less in Antutu (11,000), so statistically this performs better than the quad S4 Pro.

Even with 1 GB RAM, it will still be a major competitor. All 2 GB RAM does mostly is allow for more updates, but even with 1 GB you can still be supported for 2 or 3 years.

I don't think PA reported this, but they also improved the front camera on the One X+, that's just another little improvement someone will appreciate.

This is definitely a competitor for the top spot of devices, facing off against the Optimus G and it (arguably) trumps the GS3. All it lacks against the Optimus G is the RAM, but the software and design win it over for me.
