i choose One X.
fully aware One X loss in camera, video, benchmark.
photo/video perfomance: for meaningful moments, i'll capture with camera or camcoder.
benchmark: if a company to develop a game/app, do you think it will let its app run on most powerful machine only? that wont push the sale.
my personal preference, i like Sense UI, cant stand TouchWiz. yeah i dont look at the back of the phone most of the time, but look at the screen -> UI :) thats my reason of choosing One X.
AnonD-26870, 13 May 2012To pay so much for a phone(any company) that's ugly or that fragile to sit hidden in a monstru... moreFragile?? are you kidding me? plastic is most durable material you can get for a phone and it is proven by millions of galaxy s2 users. How are the sensations holding up against the galaxy s2 with those "expensive and durable" metal and matt coating huh?
The key issues for me were; Battery life, Audio quality, video playback, outdoor screen performance and memory capacity. GS3 won all of those so I'll probably for that.
I can live with the design, as people have mentioned, it'll be in a case most of the time.
affandi, 12 May 2012So basically Barcelona did 10-1 goals over Real madrid and the ref decided it's a draw?Hahaha exacly! the best suitable comparison! high five:)
Ted, 12 May 2012i read the whole thing but i still cant find a reason how this can be equal?!?! i mean SGS3 be... moreFinally objective comment! I have read review and now I am reading comments. I couldn't believed it! I was wondering: or is something wrong with me and I've got some problems with rating or I thing like samsung fanboy. Let me get that straight!(I dont wanna go into the details coz all of you have read review) SGSIII over HTC One X:
2.more storage options
3.features (s voice, s beam, direct call)
5.quality of videos
6.Photo quality comparison (2:1 for sgs)
7.second-gen Gorilla Glass
8.1.9MP front-facing camera with Smart Stay
9.tests results(eg.Contrast ratio,Linpack, Quadrant, offscreen 720p,BrowserMark)
12.Audio quality( here i am so suprised that sgs beat so badly hox with audiobeats??!!)
13. GPU and CPU
HTC One X over SGSIII:
1. better look ( here I would argue coz in the end of the day most of us will use case and what we will see, it will be mainly screen, not design or back of the smartphone! but i dont wanna sound like a SGS fanboy so Yes! it looks better;p)
2. Better photos quality in a dark
3. videos come out with a relatively lower bitrate
4. Already on the market and bit cheaper???? noooo! here we compare devices, not price or time of relase so definitely no point with this one!
4.... any more?
Even if I missed something (probably I did;p) You wont find EIGHT more points for HTC.
By the way, I didnt consider things like size of the screen or launchers coz it's personal.
So this was a "vs" battle and for sure the winner is GALAXY III!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not saying it's a way, way much better device! But if it's about the battle it's definitely a winner!
true or not???
So why You are saying is draw???!!!!!!!!
The galaxy s3 has a classy look to it! It's something you'd take out in a high class restaurant, high class places.. The one x is the one you'd take out in a mall, movie theater, it looks nice it looks modern but not sleek looking like the galaxy s3.. Imo
Samsung has been doing an outstanding job regarding electronics and even marketing, but has been failing bigtime when it comes to developing a chassis that matches the iPhone aura of perceived quality. That step, which seems a lot easier, is amazingly quite difficult to them.
I bought the SGS1 on the first day and it sucked due to crap slow filesystem and non-existing GPS. I now have the SGS2 and it is very decent. In this case I think I'll skip HTC's fine chassis and go with the SGS3 as it provides 2 features that are essential. 1) It allows external storage, say, any microSD and 2) It allows any battery. Right now in my SGS2 I have a nice fat microSD and a nice external Momax 2700 mAh battery, and would like to keep having such features.
AnonD-48120, 13 May 2012The S3 back compared to the HTC One X makes Samsung's flagship look extremely cheap. The desig... moreMost will eventually get an exterior casing for the S3, and how the back looks won't matter. And besides, a flat back (except that little camera lens butting out) will steady the smartphone on a table than a curved design of the One X. Someone demoed that on YouTube of the One X.
Oh, remember, you'll be using the S3 looking at the Super HD AMOLED screen, not the back side, most of the time.
The S3 back compared to the HTC One X makes Samsung's flagship look extremely cheap. The design is not worthy of a flagship model for samsung. I have no complaints about its performance it is generally better than the One X. At the end of the day you would want a easy to use phone which you would hope looks and feels good. So... HTC One X has the better looks while Samsung Galaxy S3 is the better performer. But people might consider sacrificing a little performance to make sure their phone looks better for the few years they have. Still that is just my point of view although i cannot stress enough how incredibly disappointed I am with both Samsung and HTC for using god damn plastic. Htc still did a reasonably decent job at it but samsung stepped its design to something looking worse than the S2.
Actually i like the simple look and killer specs of the s3..Battery is a big deal for me so my next upgrade will definitely be sgs3. Plus factor are removable battery and micro sd! for those commenting negative feedbacks about s3,wait til you get a real hands on,its really different from pictures and videos than holding it in your own hands. :)
Anonymous, 12 May 2012Well what do you expect? pop up or professional external flash units? Seriously...A f/2.0 lens does fine to relieve my pain over crappy LED flash. Unfortunately for the GS3 it doesn't have that, which is why it got killed by the HOX in low light shots.
my sgs 2 is still compairable to hox even after 1 year ........gsm arena sud have used sgs2 for this vs review i am sure sgs2 will win once again afterall its still worlds no 1 phone Gsmarena sud have saved the sgs3 for other phones for reviews hox is nothing in front it....and this review was not fair to htc.....
so here is my decision :
i will buy the htc one x for my girlfriend because the one x has a better design and the girls interested more than us in the design.
for me i will buy the galaxy s3 because it is more powerful ,has better still and video camera,has better sound quality,has the best screen in the market,has a longer battery life ,and has a tough built quality .
