Over confident Samsung
06 Jun 2012 By Karan Singh On flipkart.com

1. PricennSamsung 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.nn2. ResolutionnnResolution of 720 x 1280 Pixels is very promising and produces a realistic display quality with high contrast and sharp looking images.nn3. Screen nnAccording 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. nn4. Battery nnBattery (2100 mAH) is quite impressive and works beyond expectations on heavy duty of such large screen and quad core processor.nn5. Build QualitynnPeople 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. nn6. CamerannCamera is 8mp same as that of Galaxy S2 with improved interface and color sharpness. courtesy- Android v4 ICS. Front camera is also provided.nn7. GraphicsnnGraphics have not been improved, same old Mali-400MP as that of Galaxy S2. But Quad core makes its own contributions.nn8. Other FeaturesnnHowever 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. nn9. Final words and logical predictions.nnS3 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:n1. Festival season is comingn2. Indian Rupee is weakest at the momentn3. Hype of Galaxy s3 has inflated its initial pricennIts passionate to buy this phone but not wise.

Why did I finally go for HTC One X?
09 Jun 2012 By D. Mitra On flipkart.com

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:nna. Display- Both are impressive. Though, I liked Samsung Super Amoled display for vivid colors, but in direct sunlight HTC one was better.nnb. 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.nnc. 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.nnd. Camera: Both were awesome for my limited needs.nne. Price: HTC One X was 4k less, though it has 16GB more space.nnf. 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.nnBoth 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).
