The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 are some of the very best phones currently available. In this article I’ll check out a couple of their key specifications to find out how they differ and what features they share with one another.
The HTC One X currently is regarded as the most powerful device you can buy when it comes to processing power, because of its 1.5 GHz quad-core processor chip, although this title is shared with the LG Optimus 4X HD. The Samsung Galaxy S3 features a quad-core processor too, though is slightly less powerful at 1.4 GHz. Unless you’re well versed in the ins and outs of this technology, you are less likely to notice a noticeable difference between the performance, and sure to be satisfied with the performance provided by both devices. The main advantages of such powerful processor chips are wide ranging. Numerous elements of the handsets’ performance benefit, from the responsiveness of the touchscreens, download rates of apps and website content, and the fluidity of the user interface on the screen.
Both the HTC One X and Galaxy S3 are their respective firms’ top Android devices, so as you will expect, they’ve got the new version of Android which is version 4.0, otherwise known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’. It has the most significant revamp to the user interface of any Android upgrade, with regards to the visual appearance of the interface and also the features of the operating system. Combined with the Android operating system, both phones include their respective manufacturers’ custom Android user interface software. The Galaxy S3 has TouchWiz v4.0, that is found on many other Samsung handsets for instance the Galaxy Note and the earlier flagship the Samsung Galaxy S2. The One X has got HTC Sense UI over the top of the default Android UI. These Android interfaces provide an alternate appearance to the UI, and extra customisation options such as a number of customisable homescreens and other downloadable content from Samsung Hubs and HTC Hub, where you will find downloadable apps and widgets which are optimized especially for each smartphone, and multimedia products like books, motion pictures and songs. Needless to say, both phones offer access to Google Play, which allows users to download apps of which you will find thousands available.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X rightly deserve their position as flagship smartphones, and for people who are searching for the very best smartphones on the market, these two phones are entitled to a place on your list.
