Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X

0. phoneArena posted on 16 May 2012, 08:15

The HTC One X was the first new-generation Android smartphone to come out this year. It introduced us to a new kind of Android experience – one powered by an ultra-fast quad-core processor. With the recent introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S III, though, things are going to get much more interesting. Take a deep breath, people, as what follows is the most epic Android clash for the first half of the year – the Samsung Galaxy S III is facing the HTC One X!...

if samsung can sell tens of millions with an average design, imagine how many more millions they can sell with a stunning design and quality material... more often than not, i dont understand the thinking of manufacturers, seems that they dont listen to consumers

Sorry I will wait for a dog fight on Phone dog for a real fair comparison. Ray is just feeding you SG3 people what you want to hear. I am not discrediting the phone just the messenger. It may very well be better but I need to go where the reviews are consistent and fair, as well as honest!
Not to mention Samsung's always having poor radios, who wants a phone that can't hold a signal or track gps wise.

Not to mention he doesn't have his basic facts straight such as the amount of memory available for S3 (16GB, 32Gb and 64GB) as well as the fact that the S3 comes with almost all video player formats while One X comes with more limited formats, I love HTC devices but I'd prefer a more detailed and accurate review, not someone blatantly favoring one over the other but giving me facts and actual useful information than glossing over the details and putting alot of their personal opinion.

Agreed, I really want the best phone for my money that works. I want a phone that makes phone calls rather than be a multimedia device. If I wanted a MM device phone I could get an Iproduct. lol

The One X got rave reviews from most sites. Android central gave the battery a thumbs up, and test the battery while streaming music all day answering emails and making phone calls. They are now doing real world battery test to see how the battery holds up. That's the basis for a true review, not the "in my opinion review" because opinions are not facts, and usually are biased to the users preference...

I wish I can pick and choose the feature from both phones to make into one phone myself.
From Samsung: performance, keyboard layout, battery life
From HTC: camera, design, UI, Beats
Display can from either, because they are probably both look sexy as hell :P

What would you guys pick?

Sgs3, think of it in the long run, it will have a model for 64gb memory+64gb microsd, plus if you don't like the oversaturation of the screen it has 5 screen modes. faster UI, and so much more

think of it in the long run? I would think upgradable for next android platform is much much important than this... after samsung announce no ICS update for galaxy S...

Well if i wanted people to buy the new iteration of a device i wouldn't update the old one either. they are targeting sgs1 owners here because most carriers have 2 year contracts.

Most phones are upgradeable, it's just the manufacturers aren't good enough to keep up with it. If the Desire C could run ICS, then pretty much all Android devices should be able to run ICS.

Even is all else were equal, the one thing no one mentions, and it is a huge one for me, is the removable battery on the GS3. I'm a freak about running out of battery and often carry a spare with me for my EVO 3D. The wireless charging option, while charging a second battery on the SG3 is a feature I haven't seen since way back on an old Nokia. So simple, yet so perfect. Grab your charged phone and spare battery from the cradle and go! Doesn't sound like it will be released until Sept, though aftermarket may offer sooner?

i think this is the first time PA compliment samsung UX :) but by the looks of it samsung really seems to get the top of the android phones though the built and the looks are so.. so.. but features and utilizing its quad-core usability makes it much better choice though having a one x is not a shame at all for it compensates with a sturdy built and damn good-looking materials.s III really won my heart hmm.. im just wondering lg seems to be the last one to release their flagship would this mean that they really gearing up?

So all this talk about the GS 3 does anyone know when or what carriers will get it.

Well, this review is interesting. I don't see why the S3 wins this, I think they are on par. In my opinion the screen and the build quality of the One X is better, on the other side they say that the S3 is more fluid and it seems like it has the better camera. So once again it comes down to personal preferences which to choose.
