Quad-core shootout: Four of a kind - read the full textBuckle up people, because this is going to get rough. When the world's four most powerful smartphones are about to go ballistic, it is the right time to take this website's name literally. The stage is set for the four titans of the Android world...

Gsma is just being too modest to declare the s3 as the winner, and doesn't want to give the slap on the face to the htc fans out here.

Now s3, with latest update is perfect,also beats beats audio, camera finally happy, no problem with home pages, touchwiz, widgets,....everything works as it has to!
Of course htc is loosing points in the market!same problems with one s that I still have and that will be sent foe the 3rd time to assistence!

I got my one x in a brick and mortar electronic shop some time after the one x got officially released and did have no problems at all.
I played a littlbit with the siii in the electronic shop but the one x was much nicer and "sexier" to hold and handle. I am not happy about the lack of sd card slot, but the overall haptic and visual appearance of the one x is second to none. I am just loving it.

HTC One X won one of the gpu benchs, you just put the scores out of sequence - it wasn't a clean sweep for the s3 as the article states.

I'm the owner of world first dual core phone, LG Optimus 2X, and this is running very poor software, they planned to release ICS for it in Q2 2012, but still no update till now. My suggest is think wisely before buy any of LG phone.

same thing once again. Your conclusion always remains diplomatic. When you are comparing four different phones, why are you so afraid of declaring one phone as a winner. Of course we know it all boils down to user's personal preference, but then there is no point in carrying out this comparison. I think you should declare one phone as a winner, whatever you feel as a leading smartphones website. I always feel your flagship smartphones comparison has no proper conclusion. Believe me, its really disappointing.

If the LG has had software updates to fix its video problems, then I think I'd buy it if I was to choose between them.

I own an htc one x and I love it!!! However it is clear galaxy s 3 is the best here without a shadow of a doubt

I work for a carrier and the one x does appear to have a lot of faults and gets returned frequently

Samsung Galaxy SIII is the only phone of those four candidates that support native video call,
so, i vote for Samsung GSIII, since i use video call quite often.

Honestly, I would go for the LG Optimus 4X HD.

Reason being

1) it's the cheapest
2) microSD slot + removable battery
3) its performance might not be on par with S3 or even the One X, But I think for everyday use it suffices

Only thing I'm worried is LG's horrible track record of phone software... thank God for XDA

the bad camera and the overheating.

When compared to Senheiser or Bose, Beats becomes a sad sad story.. It has little mid to high freq response, thus resulting in lots of bass, but not nearly as clean as any other top brands.. :)

Alright android fans don't shoot this comment down by the quad core smartphones tested here are really immature. For example two smartphones from the same company htc one x (inter) and one x (us) and the one from the us smashed the quad core international one. Pure facts but synthetic benchmarks only
