thanks people, i have now watched so many comparison videos and am still torn. I much prefer sense to touchwiz, i prefer the screen on the one x and the camera, and i love the font aligning on zoom when browsing. But the samsung is a bit quicker, has better battery, more quirky features and better storage. i think because i'm quite a basic user, browsing, music, news, silly apps and i havent even filled the 4 gb on my current phone, the one x could be for me.

But that's today....

Definitely. I was surprised at the difference in smoothness and responsiveness between the two. The S3 definitely has the upper hand in this department.

The 1XL just isn't lacking enough in this regard for me to regret not getting the S3. Because I prefer everything else about it.

1XL looks, camera and screen >

Though I would like to have an S3 for a few days to see how good s-voice is because that might change my mind.

My major points for keeping the HOX:
Build quality
Screen Its hard to describe how clean it looks...

Software updates (I complained about wireless and 1 week later there was an update...)
Camera UI is a lot more polished IMHO (burst shot button and what not)

Things I dont like about the HOX:
Photos are noisy (Indoor mostly) - I think Sammy has the better capture (Big deal for me)
Bluetooth every day device syncing is flaky
Power Button is not getting any easier/ I cant seem to get used to it (Really annoying)
No Expandable memory and only a 16 gig (which I only got 9.something gig out of for storage)

One thing I really like about the new version of the SIII is a common name and look for all carriers. I don't know how many times I had to explain to someone that this model is the same as that model but its on the different carrier so the name is different... It just feels like this will be more of a united ownership which IMHO is what the android camp needs. HTC tried but failed imo with the One series to do that.
I much prefer the build quality and screen of the 1XL too. And here in Australia we got a 32gb model (24gb after stock phone data) and this is enough for me to not care about expandable memory.

The power button is horrible for me too, sometimes it seems unresponsive and is in an awkward position but this is not enough of a deal breaker. I only had the phone 6 days before returning it for an ELF so not sure about the bliuetooth problem yet.

But the display is nowhere near as nice as the 1XL. The camera and video is poorer and the general look of the screens/phone is cheap and tacky.

If the 1XL had the smoothness and responsiveness of the GS3 it would be without doubt the greatest phone.

With that said I still prefer the 1XL.

Run CM9 or aokp and watch what your One XL can really do.

IMO, no matter how much HTC tries to optimize sense, it will always be a lil clunky and hinder the device. Pure android is always the way to go.

What's CM9 and aokp? Apps for what?

I've been given a loan phone whilst my 1XL is sent back to Telstra to be tested for replacement so I've got to wait about a week.

They're custom ROMs without Sense. CM9 is CyanogenMod 9 and AOKP is Android Open Kang Project. Sort of the same, but not by the Cyanogen guys.

They are stripped down and basic, but your phone will fly!

Okay, thanks.

This is my first android, I don't know that I'm confident enough to go rooting it and installing custom ROMs.

I mean I want to but what's the likelihood of stuffing something up?

Having it run quick with instant response and fast load times will be great though.

You have a Telstra One X don't you? AFAIK, the procedure for that is relatively easy as HTC give you the tools to do it via their htcdev website.

It's easy enough to do, it just voids your warranty (although if your handset has a definite hardware fault, HTC should replace it).

Yes, it's a 32gb, dual core, LTE/4G Telstra HTC One XL. I get so confused with all the different names for the same model.

When I get my replacement I think I might root it. Can I always go back to the stock setup if I don't like it?

I love the look and function of it stock, but if it can run that bit smoother and faster it may be worth it because I use it for everything all day. Social networking, media, work, browsing, forums, etc

You don't have to lose the stock feel. A lot of the custom ROMs use Sense but are slicker and feel a lot smoother than HTC's stock offering.

Not sure what's available for your handset, but certainly for the Tegra 3 One X, the Sense based ROMs are a massive improvement over stock.

I might be wrong on this, but I decided against the SGS3 due to it using the exfat file system (rather than ext4) and went for the One X.

Exfat seemed to cause increasing lag and force closes/freezes the more I used it on my original SGS, friends have complained about the same on the Galaxy Tab + SGS2, so when I heard that they hadn't changed the filesystem for the SGS3 that killed it for me. Didn't get a Galaxy Note for the same reason.

Default galaxy s3 vs htc one x

I keep seeing all over the net how the S3 blows away HOX in the benchmarks. However, this is the international models. Here in the states BOTH phones use 1.5ghz snapdragon processors. So I was curious as to how the benchmarks compared when using two stateside models of the S3 and HOX. Anyone seen these figures?

One thing I really like on the S3 is that "smart stay" thing that keeps the screen turned on while you are looking at it. Do you think someone will develop an app that might mimic this idea?

Benchmarks generally mean feck all anyway, they can be manipulated to say untrue readings too.

The real test is how the OS performs when using it yourself rather than using a test.

What can definitely be said to be the truth is that Samsung are very good at marketing their products. HTC are not even also-rans in this department.

Smart stay is already available on other handsets thanks to XDA devs.

I thought sense was bog-slow on my One X, but now I use Nova launcher and it's the phone it should have been since the off.

looks like they are very evenly matched! HOX beats s3 on 6 out 12 benchmarks and S3 beats hox on 6 out of 12!

Engadget just reviewed the American models and compared them. Can't link since I'm the app but it's right on the front page.

Have to agree. I use apex launcher and its way faster than the stock sense.

No, the only way is to be rooted and download System Tuner and alter the memory settings or flash a custom ROM and flash a multitasking mod.

In what way did they do that in the design.

OK - S-Voice is a shameless rip-off of Siri, right down to icon design - but the hardware isn't very apple-like.

I think what he means, the design is so far removed from anything Apple do so as not to fall foul of one of their ridiculous patent claims?

That's how I read it anyway.

I had the One X for a little over a week, and I just got the S3 yesterday.

I LOVED HTC from way back... like when they came out with the dream and magic, i stuck with htc phones until I switched to Samsung when the S2 came out. So when the HOX I was really excited.

Sense is beautiful, so much better than touchwiz, videos came out great and the screen is great. Battery was good too. For me that's where it ended. I don't know if it was just my unit, but it was laggy, and would frequently stutter doing things my S2 would do with ease. Like switching from one app to another, scrolling down a page etc. I was already turned off of having no sd, and the battery, so those things plus the general experience of it made me return it and wait for the S3.

I'm glad I did. I really like the look better, and its just so smooth, the camera is way better IMO too.

Just my experience with the two phones so far. I hope HTC comes back better next time, I miss it LOL but very happy with the S3

Default Outside Comparisons

Here is a pic of a outside comparison of the Galaxy S3 and the HTC One. Would anyone agree this is an accurate comparison?

I would have to say that my HTC Rezound screen outside, looks awfully like the HTC One's in this pic.

I agree that looks terrible..
but..

it looks to me...the phone are leaning against a bush.. so it would be hard to for them to be leaning at the exact same angle. it seems that the htc phone has glare (reflection of out side light)

and also, it is odd.. that the big ass menu button at the bottom of the htc .. can be seen perfectly fine.. why is the glare not affecting that?

looks odd to me.

htc.. if hangs.. you hold the power button down for 10secs.. it hard reboots.. same as pulling the battery.

screens on both are corning gorilla glass .. i hear the htc is the new thinner gorilla glass 2. same durability. high scratch resistance (NOT scratch/shatter PROOF).

Default SGS3 Vs. HTC One X

Sorry if this is the wrong forum - still a little new to Androidforums.

Basically, I am an AT&T customer due for an upgrade. After researching online and checking out some threads here, I was pretty set on the Samsung Galaxy S3…however, because of some minor complications (I'm using another family member's upgrade), I want to go through an in-store upgrade to make sure everything goes smootly.

I stopped by my local AT&T store yesterday, only to find out that it was inevitably delayed yet again (I was first told the 21st, then the 28th...well at least they admit they have no idea now).

In any case, a local HTC rep was at the store, and made a pretty hard sell for the One X. Some of my bigger motivations for choosing the SGS3 were Android 4.0, the nice camera, and expandable storage. Although the Galaxy's specs are a bit better, it seemed like the One X performed admirably in most of these categories, sans expandable memory (but they do have the Dropbox promotion still available).

I'm new to smartphones, so I wanted to ask the experts what the big difference really is. I'm not exactly impatient; I don't mind waiting, but I would like to try out my first smartphone at some point. Any advice would help!

The HTC One is a good phone but for me the deciding factor was no SD expansion ability on the HTC. That's a big show stopper for me! I have the S3 and am very happy with it. I have the AT&T model and also the international model. I have to sell one of them but can't decide which one. One is really fast processing and the other is really fast downloading.

You know that by posting here you're going to get a lot of pro-SGS3 comments right?

One X seems to have build problems - flexing screens and such.

S3 wins for me because the battery is better, its removable (meaning I could carry a spare if I needed to) and its got the card slot.

Really for me:
1) S3 has removable storage.
2) S3 has removable battery
3) It is on all carriers world wide and thus will likely have huge line of accessories and tweaks available
4) AMOLED screen is black when showing a black screen. LCD is too bright at night to use as an alarm clock. Trivial, but I hate how bright a complete black screen is with LCD. However, I'm now thinking the dim screen of the S3 while at full brightness might be a deal breaker. I'll have to test it in my car as a GPS to see if it is useable.

Wait for the S3...it can't be that long until they have them in stock...the One X is beautiful and I really like HTC phones, but the S3 is just so tricked out that I say you gotta hold out for it. But, if you wait too long, in another 3-6 months there will be a new batch of Jellybean phones that make the S3 and One X look antiquated...And then the Mayans say we're all dead at the end of the year so, in the end, it doesn't really matter...

Both are good phones but like mentioned the S3 has the option of a removable battery and SD card. I never owned an HTC phone before so I went with the One X. I told myself I would never buy a Samsung phone after the Captivate.

I like the HTC ONE X screen. If HTC comes with a phone that supports microSD card and removable battery and perhaps a 5"-ish screen I'd be down.
