We'd prefer the Galaxy S III when it comes to phone calling. That's because its earpiece tends to be louder, while the voices sounding through it are also deeper, probably thanks to the special EQ that's implemented. Meanwhile, the One X isn't a bad device to use for phone calls, but it's a bit quieter and not as impressive with its quality.

Neither Samsung, nor HTC have announced official talk and stand-by times for the batteries inside the Galaxy S III and One X. The S III features a 2100mAh unit, while the One X sticks with a slightly more modest one of 1800mAh. This difference alone probably won't affect the battery life much, instead, it will largely depend on your usage pattern. For example, if you're doing pretty much everything on your phone, including email, browsing, calling, texting, gaming and so on, and if you do it a lot, then both handsets will need to be recharged at the end of each day. However, if you are more of a moderate user (and again, the definition of moderate will vary from user to user), then we can see the S III and X being capable of working for up to 2 days on a single charge.

All in all, if you aren't content with the battery life of your handset, try optimizing its power usage a bit by setting auto brightness on, lowering the brightness, quitting unnecessarily running apps, etc.


Well, folks, it should have become clear by now that the Galaxy S III will once again rule the land of Android, at least until a better contender arrives on the scene. For now, however, the powerful HTC One X isn't capable enough to question its leadership. Although HTC's offering is arguably better when it comes to appearance and overall design, the Galaxy S III is unbeatable as far as user experience goes and that's what's more important. Why would you need a good-looking phone that takes mediocre images and video, and has a number of nasty issues in its software? Meanwhile, the Galaxy S III may not be the most beautiful phone ever, but it does everything right in terms of functionality, meaning it will cause you far less trouble during day-to-day usage.

Once again, HTC's finest will have to play second-best to the Galaxy S phone of the year.
