Good for you then to get more than 24 hours with moderate use:) I got 11 hours only. I'm not saying S3 is a crap, but just want to tell that it is over-hyped and for me not better package than HOX.

I am not quite sure why people comment from a position of ignorance. I have both the S3 (crack fixed at a cost of £135 ouch) and One X. Since the upgrade of the One X to 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1, my battery lasts pretty much all of two full days, so No, the battery does not suck. As for Smart Stay, it is glitchy and not 100% and to all intent and purpose is a gimmick and superfluos as is Siri on the iP4s which I also own, albeit just sitting in the drawer!

If you prefer the S3, good for you plus trolling about other brands, especially when you do not own or have used it, simply shows your myopia and fan boyism!

Yes one x 4.0.4 is now better but they took too much time in my opinion,... This applies to both htc and samsung funs,...both phones are good, in europe we do not have one xl s4 cpu, depends on your needs,...l am waiting for the new samsung and qualcomm cpu &gpu, lg G first hands on seems they are raising the bar to another level with s4pro adreno320!

I want to see this redone with a 3 way vs vote for the HTC One x, the Samsung Galaxy S3, and the new Motorola Droid Razr HD Maxx! :-D

HTC One X definitely. It has a better screen, a better built and it's better looking.

About the non-removable battery. Since gingerbread came out, I have never removed the battery on mu Desire HD. And carrying an extra with me is nonsense. The phone lasts whole day with WiFi an 3G on.

And not having a micro-SD slot is not a problem. Maximum size of an SD card that you can use on the S3 is 32 GB, and the ONE X already comes with that much storage. And why would anybody want to swap SD card especial when you have most of your apps on the card.

SD card for media files, most especially when these Monsters take huge sized images and HD videos.

If the reason why HTC didn't include the expandable MSDC is to keep the HOX's solid build, (like Nokia's excuse with the Lumia 920) i'd go for practicality and choose expandable memory card + interchangeable battery over build quality.

Just my arrogant opinion.

Well, different cpu, 32nm s3 and 40 for one x, at the beginning one x, not xl 28nm that I think should not have had the one x hardware and software problems, was really not ready, they took more than 5 months to get a good user experience with ics4.0.4, s3 after one month and a couple of updates was already good, on the net is full faulty phones reports, I read about radio signals problems, screen problems,...much more for htc one x and one s than for s3, i like both phones but after having had so many problems with one s, I decided to buy s3 because I tought I could have problems again with one x!my s2 was almost perfect and Infact no problems at all! One s is really nice but,...all the brands can have a number of faulty phones and have periods of bad business but htc is now loosing market share day after day, I do not think that is only a marketing problem! Also htc tab pen flyer was a good idea, completely abandoned, taken by sammsung and very well implemented!
I had a very good experinece only with one htc, sensation xl, single core very well optimized with beats audio, but for me too heavy! I need my jeans on,....he he
