Being the newer device and all, the LG Optimus G is sporting a higher count 13-megapixel camera in its Sprint variant, while the AT&T model has an 8MP shooter. The HTC One X is flaunting an 8-megapixel camera. Not a shocker at the very bit, they both feature and the ability so shoot video on 1080p. Additionally, they’re packing along 1.3-megapixel front-facing cameras that also have the ability to shoot 720p video.

Even though the LG Optimus G’s 13-megapixel camera is trumping the 8-megapixel snapper of the HTC One X on paper, it doesn’t prove to be any better with its actual results. Instead, we find the qualities of the two cameras to be nearly identical to one another for the most part. Looking at the shots taken outdoors with abundant lighting around, they put out the same level of detail – though, there’s just a small fraction of saturation with the Optimus G’s color reproduction. Under low lighting situations, however, we do notice that there’s a better exposure balance seen with the LG Optimus G’s results. As a whole, there’s only a marginal improvement found with the LG Optimus G, but it doesn’t quite step over the HTC One X in this specific area.

Likewise, we can say the same thing about their 1080p video recording quality, as neither one really puts out results that are vastly better than the other. In fact, they share many common elements – like their softer looking details, noticeable artifacting, and smooth recording. Compared to some of the other greats out there, the results from the two are nothing worth boasting about merrily.

Looking beyond the stark differences between the stylized look of their respective music players, they’re actually both conventional by nature – as well as their functionality. Cranking their volumes to the max, their speakers emit the same powerful tones that roar with enough veracity to liven a quiet room.

Considering that they’re both sporting 4.7-inch displays, it’s more than ample enough to provide us with an ideal video watching experience. Well, it merely comes down to which one you’ll find as being more appealing – the warmer tones of the HTC One X, or the more neutral stance of the LG Optimus G. Whatever the case, you can’t go wroth with either of them.
