1. Price Samsung achieved top position in mobile world due to best hardware at aggressive pricing but HTC ONE-X is quad core too clocked at 1.5 GHz and available at lesser price. 2. Resolution Resolution of 720 x 1280 Pixels is very promising and produces a realistic display quality with high contrast and sharp looking images. 3. Screen According to a consumer survey 4 inch screens are most appropriate for single hand use whereas screens like 5.3 of Note and 4.8 of S3 have reduced the mobility comfort in mobiles. People end up using both hands to operate such large screens. Not to mention the increased risk of screen cracking due to inevitable rough usage. Otherwise AMOLED screen quality is phenomenal. 4. Battery Battery (2100 mAH) is quite impressive and works beyond expectations on heavy duty of such large screen and quad core processor. 5. Build Quality People might like rounded corners and plastic finish but personally I feel the cheap looking plastic design is toy like and doesn't gives a premium look. Its a matter of individual taste. 6. Camera Camera is 8mp same as that of Galaxy S2 with improved interface and color sharpness. courtesy- Android v4 ICS. Front camera is also provided. 7. Graphics Graphics have not been improved, same old Mali-400MP as that of Galaxy S2. But Quad core makes its own contributions. 8. Other Features However Samsung has always amazed its customers by setting new benchmarks in mobile world. Android Ice-cream sandwich is icing on the cake. S view and S stay though new features but are little unreal in the fast world where we cant wait and press for long, speak to mike, wait for system response and then affirm. Phew ! A bit lengthy process, I would rather touch the app icon. 9. Final words and logical predictions. S3 is so far best in hardware but all its expensive features are not much usable in market like India for example their is hardly any app that can use all the four quads of its processor. But yes this is a future proof handset at overpriced tag. Prices are bound to fall in coming months because: 1. Festival season is coming 2. Indian Rupee is weakest at the moment 3. Hype of Galaxy s3 has inflated its initial price Its passionate to buy this phone but not wise.
I had liked Galaxy S2, and was looking for a replacement . I borrowed each one for three days from my retailer, and finally chose HTC One X. My impressions were: a. Display- Both are impressive. Though, I liked Samsung Super Amoled display for vivid colors, but in direct sunlight HTC one was better. b. Battery: Both were ok for my kind of usage, mostly in an office environment. Though HTC gets a little hot, and battery is also not user replaceable. c. Storage: Samsung is 16GB, but you can add another 64GB. HTC has no such option, though has 32GB. Both come with 1GB RAM. For me 32GB on-board space was enough, as I was quite happy with 16GB on my S2. d. Camera: Both were awesome for my limited needs. e. Price: HTC One X was 4k less, though it has 16GB more space. f. Brand: I was disappointed with Samsung's treatment of its Indian customers. India is always last to receive any updates. In fact, India was one of of the last countries to receive ICS update on S2, almost two and half months after they released in Korea and several European countries. Both are impressive phones. For me S3 negatives were Price and Samsung's update policy for India (5/7), while for OneX minus is non-user-replaceable battery (6/7).
Its been a week I bought this phone, and trust me guys, this is a beast!!!nThe first thing you will notice about this phone is, well,its size. Its huge to say the least, and phones shouldn't really get any bigger than this. Personally I feel the size is big for a phone, and is simply risky for one handed use. On the other hand, the larger screen estate does help when browsing the internet, or watching a video, etc.nMany people have been complaining about the build quality of this phone, saying its cheap plastic n all. While it doesnâ€™t look as premium as other flagships, but its not that bad either. You will be fooled if you judge the phone's appearance by the pictures; in hand, it really looks and feels much better and sturdy. Also, its polycarbonate, the same material used on the HTC One X, so you can comfortably forget about the bad comments on quality of materials.nThe display is one of the the best displays right now in the market, period. Super AMOLEDs are known for their rich colors and deep blacks, and trust me, you have to see it to believe it if you havenâ€™t already. The blacks are impenetrable, and colors pop out to the eyes. You can tweak display settings if you like more natural looking colors. Finally, those who are worried about the pentile nature of the display, don't be. At pixel density of 306 ppi, you won't even notice the graininess in day to day use that was prevalent on galaxy S, unless you see from very close range.nThe ICS 4.0.4 UI is skinned by Samsung Touchwiz Nature UX. This is nothing like what touchwiz used to be couple of years back, and really brings a fresh feel to user experience, not very visually appealing as HTC Sense, but not bad either. The software runs on Exynos quad core processor, that coupled with a MALI 400 GPU and 1 GB of RAM, this phone literally eats most other phones for breakfast. I haven't seen any android device this smooth, the UI literally flies with your touch, and apps launch in a flash; it just refuses to give up, its insanely fast! All of this is powered by a 2100 mAh battery, which is a removable one too. It easily lasts a day and a half with moderate to heavy usage, and the longevity is certain to increase after a couple of charge/discharge cycles.nStorage option is plenty, as this phone comes with 16 GB onboard. If you crave for more, it supports microSD card slots of upto 64 GB capacity, so storage shouldnâ€™t be a problem for most.nThe default video player, as usual, has very rich codec support. I have experienced some issues with .mkv format, and really hope this to be fixed soon with an update. The other popular formats, divx/xvid,mp4, flv, all played without any issues. 1080p videos played smoothly without any hiccups. This phone really is one capable video player OOTB.nSamsung has incorporated the touchwiz music player, with new, polished look. The player supports all popular formats, and the phone really excels in the audio department, with a top notch audio output. Buy a pair of good headphones and you are good to go.nCamera has the same pixel count as its predecessor, the S2 (8 MP), but Samsung have improved on the sensors for better pics, which is a smart move. For all who are talking about the absence of a 12 MP unit, unless you are planning to print billboard size photos, its really not necessary. Image quality depends on the sensors. The zero shutter lag feature works as expected. The camera has a couple of useful shot modes (burst shot, panorama, etc), which are handy, but I found that not all of them uses the flash, like the burst shot mode, so forget it if you are planning to make a burst shot in low light conditions. The front camera is a 1.9 MP module, and is pretty decent as well.nThe camera is capable of recording 1080p videos is mp4 format, and you can actually capture 8 MP stills while recording the video simultaneously, which is a nice feature. I won't comment much on this since I haven't shot videos yet, but the online reviews have been positive about the video recorder. The front module is capable of shooting videos in 720p.nA couple of negatives that I have come across:-n1) Some of the features I feel are more of marketing gimmicks, like The Smart stay feature only works in a well-lit environment, and that too, the operation is not guaranteed (I personally was annoyed about this feature, and Samsung itself warns about the same).n2) Surprisingly, Samsung has removed/disabled the ICS feature of drag-n-drop one app shortcut on another to create a folder, so you have to go the old-fashioned Gingerbread way of creation of folders.n3) You cannot move installed applications to memory card.nIf you consider the overall experience, there are not many phones in market right now which can dare to stand toe-to-toe with this beast. Its not perfect, but its far from being bad either. If you have the pocket and do not want to go for anything else but the best, you cannot go wrong with this phone. Highly recommended!!!
