The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 are among of the most impressive Android smartphones on the market. In this article, I am going to compare a few of their key features to see which one comes out there.
The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 are rather evenly matched when it comes to their credentials as cameraphones. They share a number of features in common in this respect, such as an 8 megapixel resolution and video capture in resolutions of up to 1080p (full high definition) and several features like LED flash, autofocus, touch focus, image stabilisation and face & smile detection etc. Both cameras are capable of capturing high quality still images and videos with ease as many of these features can be set to automatic which takes the guesswork out of getting the best results.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X have the same version of the ever popular Android operating system. This is version 4.0, and is also known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’. It sees the biggest overhaul to date of any Android upgrade, and is renowned for its versatility, customisation and ease of use. While they share the same basic operating system, they also have their manufacturers’ respective custom Android interfaces. These are HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz. They provide additional customisation options along with an alternative aesthetic appearance to the stock Android interface.
Both handsets also have the same operating system. They both have the latest version of the popular Android operating system, which is also known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’.

These provide an alternative aesthetic appearance and a number of additional customisation options to the stock Android interface, along with many exclusive apps, widgets and multimedia download services.
As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X boast some of the most impressive smartphone technology available. Choosing between them is likely to come down to personal preference for brand, screen size or design etc. Either way, both handsets make a great choice and it is easy to see why they are both so popular.
