THE BIG FIGHT

HTC One X v/s Samsung Galaxy S III

After reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S III, we can now have a fairly good in-depth comparison of it with the HTC One X. They both have quad-core processors and have the latest ICS Android OS. They both have 8MP cams with really cool features that will always try and out-do each other. So, isn’t it hard to choose between the two? Why don’t we make your lives a lot easier by putting them against each other so that we know which is the better choice for you!

CONCLUSION : Two superphones, one Android crown. The HTC One X managed to come to the market first, while the Galaxy S III is a little late, but has plenty to show for it. We’re tempted to play it safe and split it equal. The HTC One X: this is what a droid flagship should look like. The Samsung Galaxy S III: that’s what a droid flagship should perform like. But that won’t be fair to either of them. They didn’t get where they are by playing it safe. It seems obvious that the Samsung Galaxy S III wouldn’t have raised as the new standard-setter without a powerful challenger like the One X. There’s no consolation prize here, no second-best. A fair fight and a win-win for Android.
