There was a HOX right next to it and I kept opening the same apps at the same time and the HOX seemed faster time after time. Played a few youtube vids side by side and honestly the HOX screen is just that much better. The one thing I did like about the sammy was the loudness, the speakerphone, media volume and earpeice volumes seemed significantly louder on the S3.
I think I would have chosen the HOX even if I had the chance to compare them before I bought, it just seems more cutting edge and representative of a flagship phone. Now if only HTC would fix the volume issues on the HOX.
I've been saying this for a while, I have both phones in my house (One X is mine, S3 the wifes) and have tested them both at everything, the One X is a faster phone.. I'm sure the benchmarks that people keep banging on about are out of date, off a prototype version or something as the S3 is not faster except on the stock browser.
