nothing is perfect neither is the iphone nor S3 nor Onex
but what meant to say is "NOWADAYS companies itself say that li-ion works for near abt 2 yrs as compared to 3-4 yrs li-po"
i meant that what is the problem if onex easily goes for 1 day without charge....
Rest abt games as u said: its personal choice i admit
I like how the HOX rocking the GS3 in low light is reduced to a single sentence: "However, if you look at the low light video frames, you'll notice that the HTC One X once again puts its fast lens to good use and scores a point." whereas the GS3's slight advantage in daylight gets paragraphs in excrutiating detail. Makes you wonder ;)
I also like how the One X's advantages are largely not based on specs and useless synthetic benchmarks.
"Things get vastly different in low light, when the bright F/2.0 optics of One X count big time. In such conditions the HTC flagship crushes its opponent, producing images with far less noise and much better contrast."
JUST AS EXPECTED. Love it. While some will have to pixel peep to look for differences between the GS3 and HOX in daylight, there's massive differences in low light. Don't cheapen out on the glass next time, Samsung!
lol @ the tegra 3 games exclusive reasoning again.
just another reason to pat themselves on the back an in denial assurance per se that they spent money on something where another has already beaten it for bang for the buck had they waited.
if you wanna play games go buy yourself a ps3 ps2 psx psp dreamcast wii super nintendo super family computer atari for god's sake!
I laughed at how S Beam and S Voice are called pros on the front page yet from the review they're obviously useless gimmicks:
"Of course, not all of them are deciders. The S-Voice is a direct take on Siri, but it really fails to live up to expectations, while the NFC-based media sharing over S Beam has limited application for now. Pop-up play will rarely be used while Buddy photo share borders on useless. For more details on these added features you can check out our dedicated"
for my knowledge i would like to know that how does Smart Stay work in the dark
also if Direct call works an the basis of proximity sensor then while reading a text or composing it, will it even make a call if i suddenly or by chance put my hand near the proximity sensor or just S3 upside down
would appreciate the reply...hope sum1 could help :)

Apple is not... morepls.. i don't give a damn about ipone.
GSMArena battery test gives s3 43h of endurance test,
that is 6 HOURS MORE than HOX!
(not to mention ability to just swap a fresh, full charge batt easily)
anyway, what does this means? i don't get what you're saying,
"and again i guess u must be electricity supply at your home to charge the phone or you are scared of paying 2 units extra bill for charging onex as compared to s3..."
Games? :-) No Thank You.. Not for me.
Just gives me a phone with better cam & better batt.
i use it almost everyday at Work.
yes even in bright outdoors light,according to this review the sgs3 wins in terms of readability.
people only have to go to xda-forums and visit the htc one x,s,v section to see that all the main posts you see there are problems.
yes problems with wifi,yellow spots,screens flexing,low battery life even when their unit is just a week old and even the update didn't fix all units - if you were lucky to finally get a unit that is without those other problems you would have wanted to change only the battery now it won't be possible because of yes you can't take off the battery. now you change the whole unit just because of a defective battery and give yourself another chance to get a possible defective unit and not just the battery.
Anonymous, 12 May 2012ROFL, when a flash lens is missing from prodution, that tells me a lot about their production ... moreHey, we can tell when you're REPLYING TO YOURSELF to make it look like >1 person is bashing HTC because there's a code at the bottom of your post.

Apple is not mad giving locked batteries,
there's reason behind it
LI-PO vs LI-Ion(google it)
Li-Po got a way better life then Li-ion.....and again i guess u must be electricity supply at your home to charge the phone or you are scared of paying 2 units extra bill for charging onex as compared to s3...
do you even know tegra has special Full HD games for exclusively for Tegra 3 processors...
that's because this is the moment the samsung users waited for to fight back against those who only have "ugly design" to attack it with.
you might say the cpu/gpu benchmarks won't account for real life situations because nobody will notice, alright we agree with that. but you surely can't say that for the movie playback for sure with the sgs3 mopping the floor with htc with its 4+ hours more of movie playback time.
that alone speaks volumes of how good the battery life is for this unit.
and by the way,those who made fun of sgs3 for its design now are saying the triumph of sgs3 over htc x in benchmarks are just minute. the same goes for the pentile display you've all been attacking, for only one who puts the phone near his eyes or uses a magnifying lens or microscope to use it will see those things. but on normal arm length usage away from your eyes you won't see them.
GSMARENA in truth was just DIPLOMATIC.
but what they are really trying to say IS LET THE RESULTS SPEAKS FOR THEMSELVES and that is the GS3 wins by a mile.
all those many little details, features gives gs3 the edge.
beats audio is nothing compared to voodoo.
we have all seen the video comparison of sgs3 and htc way before this article was written and htc's video looked pale.
in pictures the sgs3 clearly won on good lighting condition.
in low light condition, the htc won. so on this one it's a tie.
being able to change batteries and have microsd is a huge plus.
all in all you add all those things, all htc x won against the sgs3 is design and non-pentile display.
design, we all know users can change that once front and back covers will be available.
non-pentile display, unless you use a magnifying lens those things are not noticeable at arms length distance at hd displays.
ROFL, when a flash lens is missing from prodution, that tells me a lot about their production line quality check. And no headphones? WTF is that? This is 2012 Fail HTC is Fail
Here are some other USER reported issues that plague the HTC. Yes, Samsung has SUPERIOR R&D
HORRIBLE Battery life
External SD Option
Internal SD Storage Issues
Locked Bootloaders, [HTC, don't blame AT&T]
"First unit: Flash lens was missing. Returned for a replacement. - rpritch" SERIOUSLY WTH
"I struggled to buy a defect-less One X unit"

i'm not the one who cares for benchmarks, its just for bragging right, but then, why are you mentioning One S in HOX v S3? very comfortable of you.
read the review fully, not just the conclusion!
gsmarena are just being nice to HOX.
Higher display contrast and better sunlight legibility >>>>>>
Brighter IPS LCD2 screen anydays!
beats audio only comes into effect with earphone plugged in.. not so much of an adv, S3 even owned HOX on audio test
Impressive polycarbonate unibody?
the polycarbonate body of the One X looks and feels cooler, but it locks away the battery and precludes memory expansion!
S3 is even thinner than one X.
& What's with that bulging cam lens? seriously?!
so, what adv does HOX has over S3?
NOT ONE! Get REAL!
Samsung can never compete in quality with HTC and here's the proof again....talking abt benchmarks and all those boasting and barking about it, that s3 beats onex in performance, i have a question for them
"why you people rely on benchmarks so much ? because if benchmarks tell the true story then why don't the score is same all the time"
these words are not mine....this is XDA Developers(check out there forum)
ok you want practical proof....check gsmarena bolg itself compare the results of S3 benchmarks when they first tested it with that of now.....
In first test s3 beated every device but now in 3 benchmarks it is beaten by HTC one s...why???
and then touchwiz hardly managed to cope up with sense this time
for battery you've got OTA update for 1x...then it works pretty well...
I do admit that S3 got Smart Stay,Direct call,memory advantage
and guess what it may sound harsh but its d truth
GSMARENA-"its a win-win" but still sammy troollers blaa blaa.....s3 wins ,s3 wins!!
its for d first time gsmarena has respected an htc device against sammy but still sammy trollers are finding hard to accept it...bullshit
I have 3 S2's , a note and Evo 3d....practically after 6 months of usage and installing sumwhat 150 apps, my evo 3d works way faster then s2 and note...where the hell are benchmarks now.....all Crap
It doesnot matters the no. of sales to me because in this biased world people buy by looking at others rather than there personal preference and knowledge due which again S3 will get some nice amnt of sales....that's poor world....
before replying think TWICE---PRACTICALLY, PRACTICALLY!!
awe..........now i get it....but i wonder if it will work even if the headsets r plugged in without those over-priced-like-hell beats headsets...even my xperia mini pro costs lower than that n it has a wonderful Xloud enhancement which also boosts loudspeaker performance...
Why no Optimus 4X in the comparison? Lets bring all the Quad-core beasts out and let them riot.
'the polycarbonate body of the One X looks and feels cooler, but it locks away the battery and precludes memory expansion'
I'll take better battery life than good looks everytime
S3 is even thinner than one X.
( beats audio only comes into effect with earphone plugged in.. not so much of an adv, S3 even owned HOX on audio)
Loved the last part of the review....very objective....but yet I find myself asking the question: Why is beats audio an advantage? At first I thought its a very cool feature significantly boosting the loudspeaker/Audio performance....but in reality.....It just....sucks! :S
