Interface and Functionality:

For a long time, HTC delivered the goods by enhancing the core Android experience, but for a change in pace, we’re now finding LG’s custom Android experience to be more comprehensive. Visually speaking, we still like the style and look of HTC’s 4.0 Sense experience, but when it comes to depth of functionality, LG has made some considerable ground in making its experience the deeper between the two. Without a doubt, LG’s custom Android experience takes multi-tasking to a higher level with its QSlide and Dual Screen/Dual Play features, which are items that the HTC One X doesn’t offer with its experience. Call it a changing of the guard, but for a change, LG has triumphed over HTC in the experience department.

Although the core functions of their organizer apps are intact, HTC’s set are able to stand out more for their cool transition effects. Looking at the email experience, it’s a safe bet to say that the two are more than effective in keeping us productive on the go – especially when there’s nothing different with the Gmail experience.

Presenting us with enough room for our finger to play around with, we don’t find one to be better when it comes to the messaging experience. Not only are they spacious with their layouts and offer us the ability to input punctuations and numbers from their main layouts, but we find the responsive nature of the two keyboards to soundly solidify the perfect experience.

Processor and Memory:

For the average Joe, it’s rather difficult to distinguish which of the two is the faster when it comes down to raw performance, as they exhibit smooth executions with a variety of basic tasks. However, as we’re able to test them out to their limits, we find the LG Optimus G giving us that tight and snappy performance that we desperately crave to make it the stand out winner. Showing off its worth, the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM goes beyond the benchmark results put out by the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU with 1GB of RAM on the HTC One X.

Getting more bang for the buck, the Sprint version of the LG Optimus G presents us with 32GB of internal storage out of the box, while the AT&T one has 16GB and microSD slot. Meanwhile, with the AT&T variant of the HTC One X, we’re only given a measly 16GB of internal capacity.

Internet and Connectivity:

By now, we’re all aware that these two are superb devices for surfing the web, naturally, mainly due to the fact that they offer exceptional and smooth navigational controls combined with speedy 4G LTE connectivity. Between the two, we notice that the LG Optimus G is more gracious with its fluid movements than its rival, but it’s not something that we’d consider to be a deal breaker in this category. Rather, it’s just the annoying way that the HTC One X renders things on the go with its constant blinking actions – essentially sticking out the most in our minds as being a distraction. Aside from that, they’re wonderful.

With various versions of the two handsets floating around, we know that they’re available in GSM and CDMA variants – though, the CDMA version of the HTC One X is the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint. Not too much of a shocker, they share many common connectivity features. The listing consists of aGPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, mobile hotspot functionality, and NFC.
