Everyone is waiting to find out if the HTC One X+ is able to beat the Samsung Galaxy S3. It could be some time before we find out just how well sales have gone for the handset, but we can match the devices specs against each other.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a dual core 1.5GHz processor and the HTC One X+ has the Tegra 3 from NVidia, which is quad core. HTC have said that their device is 67% quicker than its predecessor.
The HTC One X+ comes with an LCD display that is 4.7 inches and which is 312ppi and it has a resolution of 1280 x 720p. The HTC One X+ offers colours that are more realistic and it does perform better when it is in direct light, thanks to it having brightness that is a higher level. The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with colours that pop from the screen and it has deeper blacks. Some users find it is hyper real due to this.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 weighs in at 4.7 ounces and measures 5.38×2.78×0.34 inches, while the HTC One X+ is 4.76oz and measures 5.28×2.75×0.35 inches.
The HTC One X+ comes with 64GB of storage and it also has Dropbox storage of 25GB, but there is no SD card option. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has as much as 64GB of storage and another 64GB can be added via SD card. It has 2GB of RAM, which means it has twice that of the HTC One X+.
Both of the devices come with cameras of 8 megapixels and the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a camera of 1.9 megapixels on the front, while the HTC One X+ has a 1.6 megapixel camera on the front.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has ICS out of the box which has been updated to Jelly Bean, while the HTC One X+ has already got Jelly Bean. Both of the handsets come with batteries of 2100mAh, along with NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is packed with superb features and it has been very popular since it was released last year. The HTC One X+ also comes with specs that are great; however it probably won’t knock the Samsung Galaxy S3 from its pedestal.
The original HTC One X also came with some superb specs, but it didn’t beat the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it came to popularity. It was let down by the fact that the battery wasn’t removable and it didn’t have support for SD card. It also wasn’t available with all of the US carriers. The HTC One X+ has made the exact same mistakes as its older brother and HTC went about fixing things that didn’t need mending in the first place.
