Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X vs Galaxy Nexus vs iPhone 4S: spec comparison

0. phoneArena posted on 03 May 2012, 16:07

The Samsung Galaxy S III is not only the beautiful handset with design inspired from nature and targetting - for a change - humans, but also a muscular silicon beast on the inside…

Well, the iPhone doesn't really win at resolution. Technically yes, but considering the human eye can't detect pixels over 300 ppi, all new high end Android devices and the iPhone tie. But if you want to get technical, the Rezound has 342 ppi if I'm not mistaken, though not the best hardware, still "wins" in pixel density. Camera is up for debate, it really depends on what your idea of a 'good picture' is, though the iPhone's camera is good all around, all the others are still great, supposedly better depending on how others view it. The reason iOS runs so smoothly is because it's a very simple OS. Basically, just a 4x4 grid of apps (not including the dock) with a notifications bar. Though it's very good for people who just want things to work, and are either too lazy or just don't have the time to figure out Android (which isn't very long depending on what you want out of it), a lot of people like the idea of having a device that is actually theirs. Like, you can just take a look at it and say, "That's ___'s phone." The only way you could possibly do that with an iPhone is just the wallpaper, and some people leave the stock wallpaper on it, so you would have to go around asking everyone because you can't tell the difference otherwise because it looks the same. Sorry if that was a bit lengthy

Why does Taco always get so many down-votes? He brought up a pretty valid point here.

Because we're dealing with fanatics. They hate Apple without reason. Apple's next phone could have every single thing on it they say they want and they would still hate it.

Well of course my question was rhetorical. Nonetheless, down-voting gets in the way of rational public discourse, as enough down-votes hides the original comment, no matter what it was. This seems like censorship that should be left to the admins, not a mob of fanboys...

Calling someone a "brainwashed human zombie" doesn't do yourself any favors: it suggests that you have a phobia of anybody who disagrees with you, and the only way you know how to get back at them is by spewing poorly-worded insults that make no grammatical sense.

If you actually think that people's choices in phones dictate how they live their lives, I'd suggest you get a better grasp of reality. I'd wager that Taco doesn't live in prison, and that he generally enjoys freedom. Otherwise he would probably have been pressured into buying an Android phone because the 99% of commenters on PhoneArena tell him to because, despite your claims that "Android will create a free and open world in which little boys and girls will laugh and play in gumdrop fields, and Apple wants to take over the world and control everyone's lives" (okay I may be paraphrasing), the overwhelming Android majority on PhoneArena has created an ecosystem in which speaking against Android devices (especially those made by Samsung) labels you as an enemy of freedom, a zombie, and a moron. (I'm sorry about the length of that sentence, by the way.)

You're a FANATIC ONE YOU'RE SELF. You bash everything on Samsung phones or other Android phones. and you keep saying Android copy off from iOS.

quad-core 1.4GHz VS. dual-core 800MHZ. seems to me your processor is really slower than any of the Android phones. you seem to know everything cause you think iPhone IS KING OF ALL PHONES but guess what IT'S NOT.

if you were any smarter the iphone is clocked ar 800 mhz because it doesnt handle all the garbage the android does... but is faster in web browsing then the dual core SGSII.. watch the test... troll

You do realize that SONY makes the iPhone camera right. probably not.

I have used ios devices. Two of my friends have the 4s. I have used thier phonea. And both are very laggy compared to my galaxy nexus. I do not know how the s3's camera preforms so i cannot argue that point as the 4s definitley beats my phone.also as i stated the 4s wins in screen resolution because of the small screen. Samsung or HTC could probably also make a 3.5 inch screen with the same resolution.

for all the pentile detractors out there.. the important part is the ppi density, and with that, it handily holds its own.

apple has to come up with something alot better than all these quad core beasts out there
even if they come up with a 4 inch screen , its still gonna look like a magikarp infront of all these Gyarados' haha

Maybe that magikarp will evolve into a gyarados one day... Over the next few years, Apple is going to need to do some major overhauls in order to compete. Their innovation has come to a halt, and if they don't create some make-overs for iOS and the body style, and boost the hardware to compete with the beasts that are coming out, they are gonna be the next RIM.

waitin for sony hayabusa.
And the difference between lg optimus 4x, one x and s3 are not much except for the screen, battery capacity and storage capacity.
The best screen is lg and htc's as the s3 uses pentile.
Battery capacity round goes to lg and samsung as they both have removable 2100m power batteries opposed to htc's 1800.
And the storage on the s3 is 128gb. On the 4x hd is 80gb ane one x is 25gb.

There is also the difference in the 4Quad technology. The S3 uses 32 nm compared to the 40 nm of the Tegra 3, which means that with such a big battery the battery life it is expected to be MUCH better than the other two. Also the benchmarks will tell if it's better of not, but if past things can teach anything it will be.
I also expect the camera to peform better than in the other two.
