HTC One X+ vs Samsung Galaxy S3: HTC Still Hasn’t Learned!

By  | 

We’re now waiting for the HTC One X+ to see if they can put paid to the Goliath of 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S3. While it will be some time before we can figure out how well the sales of the One X+ are going, we will check out their specs first to see where both Android stand against each other.

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X+

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a dual-core 1.5GHz chip, while the HTC One X+ has an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core. HTC claims that its handset is 67% faster than the One X.

In display terms, the HTC One X+ has a 4.7” LCD screen with 312ppi and a 1,280x720p resolution. The S3 has a 4.82” Super AMOLED screen with 306ppi and a 1,280x720p resolution. The HTC One x+ provides more realistic colors and performs better in direct sunlight as it has a higher level of brightness. The Samsung Galaxy S3 provides deeper blacks and vibrant colors that just pop, although some users may find it doesn’t look very real because of this.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 measures 5.38×2.78×0.34” and weighs 4.7oz. The One X+ is 5.28×2.75×0.35” and 4.76oz.

The HTC One X+ has 64GB of internal storage, as well as 25GB of Dropbox – there’s no SD card. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has up to 64GB internal and up to 64GB external storage. At 2GB of RAM, the S3 has twice as much as the One X+.

Both phones have 8MP rear cameras, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 1.9MP front camera, bigger than the One X+, which has a 1.6 front snapper.

The S3 is on ICS and waiting for Jelly Bean, which the One X+ already boasts. They both have 2,100mAh batteries, as well as NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi.

So, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has loads of amazing features and has been wildly popular since May. The One X+ also has great specs, but it’s unlikely that it’ll knock the S3 off its perch. Why?

The original HTC One X also had great specs, but didn’t stand a chance against the S3 in sales. It looks fab, but was let down by the non-removable battery and non-existent SD card. There was also the fact that HTC didn’t make it available across all four major US carriers. The HT One X+ has followed these exact same mistakes, instead fixing things that weren’t broken in the first place.
