Can i say both?

But if i were to choose, i will pick GS3. Although HTC One X has superior screen display and build quality..

I don't mind for removable battery and micro SD,S3 is beast and all,but design,for me,is awful,and that cheap plastic look is no-go for me,hands down I'll choose one X..even one S is sexier than S3..that's just my humble opinion..

With the recent update to 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1, the One X is now speedier than the GS3, and it's battery lasts nearly as long now. That, coupled with the unibody construction, puts the One X back out front for me.

The major advantage of the GS3 is how easy it is to root and mod compared to the One X.

Who care? S3 will get JB on 29th August.

Maybe, maybe not. JB isn't going to make that much of an improvement. I know, I have both the One X and S3.

Android has been as smooth as iOS since high-end models in mid-2011 came out. Jelly Bean and super phones like the GS3 and One X are just as fast or faster. With Jelly Bean, they will definitely be faster.

It will, in JB there's a feature called Project Butter or "Google's War on Lag" it keeps things running at 60fps CONSTANTLY and somehow uses less power than any other Android OS. It should actually be smoother than iOS... or I'd assume so. Not noticeably though, human eyes capture at 48ish fps.

actually, one x will have more advantages while having the JB. in ICS, sense runs more laggy than touchwiz. but with JB, it might runs smoothly & there's no doubt sense is more polished

definately THE ONE X. much better build quality and looks brilliant. and yeah jelly bean s gna make it far more better in so called benchmark tests. and guys AFTER 4.1 ONE IS DAMN FASTER THAN GS3 AND A BETTER BATTERY LIFE. sammy is just a cheap plastic body junk and look at samsung widgets.... they look like a kids play. htc rocks.

You need a case to protect from scratch and abuse look at iPhone hundreds of cases available even though it made aluminum. Galaxy S3 made of plastic but inside HTC is no match.

S3 because....it has a removable battery,sd card slot, bigger battery, better camera, but i don't like the cheap plastic used for gs3 body, though.

Seriously Ray
Talking with the toy monkey?
Aren't you the one who rate both phone and your review clearly say that sgs3 is better?
Now you still doubt it? From the review you say that sgs3 has solid build than no other, then some of your article bash for its build quality issue lol
Are you start to confuse again which is good?

"Well, technically, the material used for the handset is polycarbonate, but it definitely doesn't feel as high-quality and premium as the body of the One X, for example."

That's what I said about the GS III's build quality in the review. Definitely not as good as the one of the One X. Obviously, I was right to say that, as a few months later, we now see how many users are starting to have problems with the device's plastic.

That said, I do stay firmly behind my opinions in both reviews. The GS III is the better device in terms of software and performance.

But, the point in this article is to see which one you guys think is the better device.

however, even if people break the back side of their s3, they could change it easily. one x however, is a different story, you scratch the shell, it will always be there

Honestly, I really cannot choose between these two smartphones(but I voted for one x since there was no option for both). The sgs3 might outperform the one x on some areas but I really liked how htc made the one x. Look how much effort they had done to make it. For instance, I am not after which web browsing is the best among them because I have my laptop for that, the camera...we have our own cameras right?processor...you won't notice much difference when you're already using them...the screen and user interface I guess is of you're own preference...build quality and design overall, you're own preference again but the lack of micro sd support and a nonremovable battery are the downside for the one x but nevertheless I am not taking that as a big deal and many other more. The high number of advertisements by samsung probably made the s3 sell like pancakes, htc also had their ad but that was not enough to convince the majority of the consumers. If htc wants to sell more devices, they have to think of new strategies again...

tiara ur exactly right here , rather i have exactly the same opinion in my mind. samsung is selling bcause of more no of aads. htc lacks in their marketting skills. however htc is one of the best handsets out there and most beautiful too.my bro owns gs3 and i own htc one x, but the thing is he keeps playing with my handset all the time. haha. he now dosent like his gs3.built wuality of htc is something which others cant compete with. ur opinion was damn right. htc rocks. and good luck to them.

Build quality: One X hands down.
Overall features: GS3 without a doubt. I got tired of Sense.

I would rather have a menu key (S3) than a dedicated multitasking 1 (One X)
