Sony Xperia S beats the HTC One X in a sleep-to-snap camera speed contest (video)
Both the Sony Xperia S and the HTC One X claim sub-second focus and shoot times, similar to the zippy iPhone 4S, but who would be the fastest in actual everyday usage?

Not surprisingly, the Sony Xperia S with its dedicated shutter button can beat them all, as it goes from a turned off screen to taking a picture quicker, eliminating the need to unlock the screen first. 

The Xperia S showed similar results against the iPhone 4S, Galaxy S II and the Lumia 800 in a cowboy shootout recently, again thanks to the thoughtful sleep-to-snap function Sony has provided via the physical shutter key. In our review we found it taking a second or two to make a shot, depending on the lighting conditions, starting from sleep.

The One X also gets measured against the Galaxy Nexus, which claims "zero shutter lag" in-between shots, but the 4 shots per second burst mode of the One X can hardly be beat, especially when we also consider that the constant pumping of the finger on the Nexus screen made its shots blurry.
