While both phones come with plethora of settings in their camera applications, including the special burst/best shot mode, the Galaxy S III is the obvious winner in the camera department, because of the superior quality of its pictures. It simply manages to capture sharper, more detailed shots, with lower levels of noise at the same time.

The color balance is pretty good with both handsets, although colors in the One X's photos are often too saturated to be considered realistic. In addition, the GS III handles exposure better. In some situations, if you're shooting against the light, some object/details might entirely disappear on the One X, while in the photos of the Galaxy S III, they are still visible.

The Samsung Galaxy S III also shoots the better 1080p video. Detail level is about the same, but the GS III again manages to expose the whole scene a bit better. Where The S III really outshines the One X, though, is that it records video at the smooth 29 fps, while the One X is limited to 24 fps, making its video seem a bit more choppier.

Multimedia:

Obviously, both the Galaxy S III and the One X would be great companions when it comes to multimedia.

The One X puts a bit more focus on music playback through its integration with Beats Audio, that's why it might appeal more to those people who listen to a lot of music on their devices. Still, the Galaxy S III isn't really barebones in this respect as well, as it has a Sound Alive equalizer with many presets, which should let you achieve similar quality.

It's debatable which of the two offers better movie-watching capabilities. Both screens are almost equally big, and while the GS III is able to display some more vibrant colors, the One X is still not too far behind, keeping everything much more real at the same time. It will obviously be a matter of personal preference whether you'd select the HD Super AMOLED or S-LCD 2 experience.
