Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X+: S3 Finally Beat

By  | 

There are some great Android handsets on the market at the moment. This means that anyone wanting to buy a new device is going to have a hard time deciding which to get.

IDT: Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X+

At the moment two of the most popular handsets are the HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy S3 given their top notch hardware, ideal dimensions and features. The S3 is sleek and powerful and the One X+ is a large improvement over its predecessor. So which of these two handsets comes out on top? The folks over at IDT undertook the test and found out that the HTC One X+ came out on top. Why?

The Samsung Galaxy S3 runs on ICS and there is an update to Jelly Bean very soon. The HTC One X+ already has Jelly Bean pre-installed and this gives users many improvements over ICS, including better notifications, Google Now and Project Butter.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with the Snapdragon dual core processor in the US, at 1.5GHz. It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB internal storage, which can be boosted by another 64GB through SD card. The HTC One X+ has a quad core processor that comes with a higher speed and it has newer architecture which beats the S3 (on paper at least). In term of storage however it doesn’t have expandable memory and this may put off those who find the 32GB too little.

The screen of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is 4.8 inches with 306ppi and 1280 x 720 resolution. This is compared to the HTC One X+ with its 4.7 inch display and 312ppi and resolution of 1280 x 720. The screen of the One X+ is the sharper of the two and it is also better when used outdoors. The brightness and colours take on a more realistic look to them as compared to the S3 which many find looks unrealistic (although you can’t beat those deep blacks and vibrancy).

IDT concluded that if you are due for an upgrade now and had to pick between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X+, the HTC phone has the upperhand albeit by a small margin.
