Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones came to parallel Apple’s iPhone. HTC One X was one of the brightest shining stars at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. When two such powerful phones release at almost coincident dates, to which side will the market gravitate? Let us pit the two giants to find out.
Samsung is marketing Galaxy S3’s design as being inspired by the nature and has soft edges and shiny finish. It is also larger than HTC One X by 1-2mm. Speaking of HTC One X, the phone is designed by designers, comes in a polycarbonate body with a matt finish. In terms of looks, HTC wins.
Both the phones have the same display resolution- 720 pixels HD and almost identical screen size- 4.7 inches for One X and 4.8 inches for S3. The display of both these devices is the best in the market today. Daylight users will find One X’s IPS LCD easier to use, while indoor users will love S3’s AMOLED display.
Galaxy S3 has a 2100 mAh battery while HTC One runs on an 1800 mAh unit. The HTC has an additional power core, besides its quad-core structure, that processes lighter items, leaving the four cores unused for higher processing needs. However, remember that actual battery life depends heavily on individual user usage patterns.
You probably would expect HTC which has historically been the creator of best user interfaces to be the winner here, the truth is, S3 comes very close. S3 runs on Android Ice cream Sandwich 4.0, features a Siri clone (S Voice) and eye controls to manage screen settings. One X still remains true to HTC’s commitment to smart user interfaces.
