    Galaxy S3 VS One X

    Upgrade soon and I can't make my mind up.

    I've read reviews, watched videos and looked at price differences.

    I thought I'd see what you lot think about the two.
    Can we try and keep Apple out of this? lol

    I'm in the same boat as you ScottB5, but i think i've decided on the S3, mainly due to better battery performance and features. Although i must say i think the htc looks better.

    I'll keep Apple out of it when HTC or Samsung make a better phone.

    Of the two, if you're really determined to go Android, HTC all the way. Galaxy is fast but Samsung's UI overlay on vanilla Android isn't as snappy as HTCs.

    Sent from my HTC, but only because my missus has stolen my iPhone because it's better than her Samsung...

    I like the screen on Samsung (who makes parts for Apple) but I agree with Audigex, the UI for Samsungs is poo. No where near as many options or widgets as HTC.

    On paper the HTC is faster than the S3 by 100mhz, I can't remember what the bench tests said, I will take a look.

    Guy in work has a One S and his battery has lasted 2 days so far and that's with WiFi and 3G being used.
    Ok its smaller than One X but that level of battery out of a smart phone is amazing I think. The Galaxy S battery did last longer than my DHD.

    The bench tests have reveiled that samsungs quad core processor out performs the tegra 3 processor by quite a bit, but this is on a test unit. Also, the Ones S is not quad core but rather dual so i would expect it to be better on battery life. I think out of the quad cores the samsung processor is best so far in battery life tests. Also the samsung has removeable battery and microSD slot to expand memory whereas the one x has not.

    I do agree that the HTC sense is better than the samsung touch wiz which is one of my concerns as i currently have a htc. I thought i was decided on getting a one x until the samsung came out. But i wont buy it until i have seen and tested it in real life in the shops when it comes out. Also i'm undecided on whether to get the S3 in blue or white, where as with the HTC it would of definitely been white.

    I also heard there is a design flaw with the htc screen. If you touch it by the edges, the screen blurs or something by the edges. Although this does not bother me as i hardly going to be touching the edge of the screen! lol As you can tell i'm still a bit undecided! lol

    Sarah has that phone and camera on it is amazing.
    The screen is really nice.


    I think I've been with HTC to much.
    I really like their sense UI and nothing else I have used comes close to it.

    I can't say mate sorry.

    I like the unlock screen and sound
    There is loads of little features that brings a smile to my face as I say "ooo cool".

    It did not have a sim card or setup fully so I could not test the speech or face recognition that it apparently has.
    I'll do it next time.

    My vote goes to the S3 (must get one to match the car )

    Got an S2 at the moment which has just had the 'ice cream sandwich' firmware update - sounds like the S3 is a good step up. It apparently has wireless charging as well

    Well, a colleague of mine has the One X and it is a really impressive phone. Think I'll still go for the S3 though when I get home. Well, it would be rude not to.
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...
