Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X comparison ! (which should we buy?)

Reviews By 5 years ago

The Samsung Galaxy S3 was just recently announced and it blew us away !
On the other hand, the HTC One X is a beautiful and strong piece of device which not only does the job, but give’s you a strong and solid feel when you hold it in your hand comparing to the Samsung Galaxy S series.

Here is a comparison between the two !

  • HTC’s Unibody Polycarbonate looks much better and seems tougher. The downside to the unibody is a non-removable battery and no expandable storage.
  • Sense UI is more flexible than Touchwiz.
  • The RGB stripe display on the One X has a finer picture and more realistic and accurate colors while the PenTile Amoled screen creates sharper blacks and better contrast.
  • As far as benchmarks show, Samsung’s Exynos chipset is better than the Tegra 3.
  • Samsung has little extra stuff ( Svoice, Smart Stay and other services taking advantage of the 6 sensors) and packs a better battery, while on the other hand these sensors and extra services use more battery.
  • Cameras are both very quick but detailed comparison can’t be done until SGSIII’s release.

    After comparing the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy SIII side by side yesterday, the HTC One X screen is on a whole different level. It’s such a nice vibrant colourful screen. However the GSIII feels better in the hand and the screen seems a bit bigger (bigger than 0.1inch would normally be). Either way I think owners of either phone are winners here. They are both exceptional phones.
