- Lag, lag, lag. I owned a HTC One X back when it first came out. It lagged. This is 2012 guys. My SGS3 does not lag, ever. It's so smooth and compared to the HTC One X, the SGS3 is like butter.
- Bad camera quality. Yes the HTC One X has a f2.0 aperture, but what good does that do when the camera lags? Video capture is only possible at 19FPS (well at least my HTC One X did). Anything below 25FPS is unacceptable.
- Crappy battery life. This is probably the most ignored feature of a smartphone but probably the most important. What use does a phone have when it dies on you during work or college? My HTC One X could barely get past 5pm after a whole night of charging. And that's with moderate usage. My SGS3 gets me past 9PM with moderate to heavy usage (I get up at 6am each morning).
- Just poor quality control.
I like the aesthetics of many HTC products and the HTC One X probably has the best LCD screen on the market. But come on. They are crap in terms of quality control.
I am going to get an S3 over the One X, but saying the battery life sucks is just wrong. Just about every review I have come across says the One X has incredible battery life that bests the S3 9/10.
