Poll results: Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X
posted by Ray S. / Aug 28, 2012, 2:52 AM
Well, it was a tough fight indeed, but the Galaxy S III came out victorious in the end, although with not such a big margin. The Galaxy S III managed to preserve its lead almost throughout the whole duration of the poll, but some of you may have noticed that at the very end, the One X somehow finished ahead. That sudden lead seemed quite strange so we decided to investigate. It turned out that a total of 884 votes for the One X have come from a single IP, meaning that someone out there wanted the One X to win really bad. Of course, we filtered out those votes and the end results are as follows: the Samsung Galaxy S III wins with 3273 votes, followed by the HTC One X with 2477.
What do you think has made most users vote in favor of the Galaxy S III?
Which phone do you prefer?

One X does rather well with fanboys, unfortunately not with normal users.

For me it's simple. I don't like TouchWiz. +1 for HTC

You can't go wrong with either one. I personally like Sense, but Verizon didn't offer the phone, coupled with my preference for a removable battery and microsd, and it had to be the SGS3. Though, I was planning on waiting for the RAZR HD. But now that's not an option.

If HTC had microsd. Maybe removable battery. It would've definitely won.

MicroSD + Removable battery = say goodbye to beautiful monolithic design.

The specs. A lot of people are just spec hungry, and since the GS3 has the best A-9 quad-core processor (or 2 GB RAM, depending where you live), obviously they are going to go for that without considering much else. Though that covers a fair portion of people, another portion just enjoy Touchwiz UX better than Sense 4. Whether because Sense is too heavy for them, or they just like the overall UI and features of Touchwiz better is up to the person. I'm pretty basic with my GS2, my needs are easily met by the dual-core Snapdragon S3, even though being one of the lowest performing dual-cores on the market (web browsing could be better though). So anything more than that would be pretty negligible. I probably wouldn't notice the difference in speed between the One X and GS3, except maybe in web browsing with the One X because Sense 4 is kind of weird with that. I'm most likely going to get the next Nexus, and I will be content with that for a long while if the rumored specs are true, until a couple years of updates when it starts to slow down a bit. I really don't understand people that are just like, "OMG I need a quad-core 2 GHz processor and a 1080p 4.5" display with 4 GB of RAM!" And all they do is just text, watch Youtube, and play Angry Birds. That's just ridiculous.

The basic reason for choosing S3 over One X was the fact of battery life. I have read many reviews about the battery life of One X which has distracted me from owing a One X. SD card does not a real matter for me as built in 16 GB memory is enough for me...

Why do the PA readers vote for the gs3? Easy, 'cause in all the comparisons you have run in the past, you declared the gs3 as the clear winner. But you have never done a comparison between these two with one x running the last version of sense. I bought the gs3 and swapped it for the X as soon as it got updated. Compare them, show the people and do the pole again...

well wellll guyss. read this comment its imp. first of all i just got my htc one x update to version 4.0.4 and damn damn its on fire. buttery smooth. and definately better than samsung gs3. i mean it. look i have both phones. i use samsung gs3 and htc one x. at first sammy seem better but to b frank it actually sucks on looks and its cheap body. the decision is not biased at all cause i like samsung hardware. but when i updated my htc one x , it showed better results. and a very smooth user interface this time with no lags at all. on the other hand sammy still has lags. and user interface sucks. battery has improved a lot . i literally mean it. for those who think i am a htc fanboy, m sorry for them. cause i love samsung phones but this is clear that htc has a better ui and better body and looks .and if jelly bean comes god htc s gna b on fire. and m not giving this review just like that, its a USER REVIEW. and i m not in a mood to hurt samsung fanboys here. its just my experience with both phones. good luck htc ur better, far more better
