    What was the selling point for you , screen is better on X that's about it

    S3 has more RAM
    larger screen
    much longer battery life(allegedly)
    Faster phone
    Camera's a wash from the video review I saw (pics better on X, vids better on S3)

    The S3 does look like a stupid pebble/Rock though at the end of the day

    I'm seriously considering it. The multitasking issue (and HTC's "non-giving-a-crap" attitude) has left a bad taste in my mouth. I know I can flash roms and stuff, but I honestly hate having to tweak products for basic things to work. After the USA version of the s3 comes out and the reviews pour in, I'll make my decision. I honestly don't care about the amoled vs. LCD thingy. My eyes suck anyways

    How is the phone faster? I thought that the LTE version on att will have the same processor as the HOX.

    I already pre ordered a SG3, i will be selling my One X once my SG3 comes in. I can't stand the multitasking on the OX, and Bluetooth has been crap for me and my car. Those are my biggest issues so far and both are annoying on a daily basis. If i thought they would be fixed anytime soon i would stay, but i do not so it's on to the next phone

    • S3 Screen is trivially larger. Most people can't tell the difference.
    • Camera is not a wash. Not by any stretch of the imagination. HOX wins hands down.
    • S3 can be had with 64gig memory, but not if you get it from AT&T. It wins the storage battle ONLY because of microsd support.
    • MUCH longer battery life is absolutely NOT TRUE, at least given equal tests in equal areas with the same carrier. Comparing quad core versions of both phones, HOX wins.
    • The S3 is NOT faster.


    So wrong on all but one of your items.

    Oddly, you failed to mention the removable battery that gives the S3 an edge in some people's mind.

    Also don't forget the reason behind shipping the S4 version of the GS3 with 2GB of RAM is because TouchWiz 5 uses a good majority of it compared to the international 1GB QuadCore versions. You won't notice any performance increase and really won't have any spare RAM waiting to be utilized because of this.

    The only area the GS3 wins out is in expandable storage and swappable batteries. All the Samsung "features" like S-Voice, Smart Stay, Direct Call etc. are all just gimmicks and don't really increase the UX on the phone.

    Also, comparing device support of HTC vs Samsung is hilarious.

    HOX camera is okay, but i would not say it is better then the SG3, both are 8mp, it's hard to tell any difference.

    The screen is bigger on the SG3, shhh don't tell any one who is getting a IP5 that a few CM is not that big a deal(LOL) Seriously though it is bigger

    The SD support is HUGE for SG3, phone has more storage hands down. The difference will be felt every month in streaming data that cannot be store locally on the phone.

    As far as battery goes, my HOX cannot make it from 8am to 11PM w/o needing a charge. SG3 is ?? for now, but it does have option to change battery, effectively giving you another 12+ hrs.

    I'm not saying the HOX is bad by any means, but it is lacking in a few areas. Enough for me to want to get the SG3.

    "the multitasking issue" i see this thrown around a lot in the one x forums but honestly i haven't had any issues multitasking... there's even a button for multitasking called the recent apps button. idk maybe i'm just not understanding the real issue.

    if i was still within my 30 day window i think i would. the more reviews i see of the S3 the more interested i am in picking one up.. and buying one outright is out of the question for me. it's not that i don't like the One X. i love it. but i think i would like the S3 better.
    my friend is picking one up once it comes to at&t so maybe he'll want to trade with me. haha

    Well, consider yourself lucky if you have never experienced it.
    Try this:
    1. Launch the stock notes app, compose a random note.
    2. Tap the home button (or recent apps button), launch the camera app, take a few pictures.
    3. Launch the email app, view an email.
    (Optional: also go view a webpage in the browser app)
    4. Switch back to the notes app.
    What happens? Is it where you left off?

    I'm not.

    1. I don't like the blue-ish tint that seems to be overtop of the screen due to the larger blue pixels.
    2. don't like the cheap plastic feel.
    3. My One X lasts long enough for me. I can take off at 7am and don't need to charge until I go to bed.
    4. The One X is sleek, and nice looking and feels great in the hands.
    5. Who cares about storage? Google Music, Youtube/Google Movies and then Dropbox/Google Drive solves all this.

    Tried this exact thing and yes, it was exactly where I left off.

    I will never own another Samsung again after my experiences with the Droid Charge, SGS II, and Note. The screens suck and I can never select the right things on screen plus TouchWiz is hideous. I love the One X and it always seems like grass in greener but seriously don't just jump ship because of proposed specs and promises. Samsung never updates anything when they say and their devices feel like they're toys. If you want something like that go for it but I'll stay with this and I'll try not to say I told you so.

    Depending on your usage that's actually pretty good battery life.

    Can someone answer this question for me? I pre ordered the galaxy s3 at best buy. I want to get rid of my one x by selling it instead of returning it. If I decide to sell the one x I just take my sim card out and pop it in the s3 and I keep everything I have? This won't screw up my contract?

    I can't imagine switching. The design of the One X alone is enough to make ne never want to let it go. I can work around software issues I don't like, but I'm stuck with anything physical. And the GS3 is no looker to me.

    Remember, Samsung on AT&T will never updaate any of the problems the S3 will have. HTC already has. I am speaking as a former Samsung Captivate owner, and a present international OX owner. Stick with the OX. So much better!

    I've had Samsung phones for a long time. I'm enjoying my one x. yeah battery and storage but the one x is a good phone and I've been testing streaming data to save storage and for me I don't see going over my data. But to each there own.

    Camera in the s3 is better. the hox has the same sensor thats in the galaxy s2 while the sensor in the s3 is a newer modified version of the one in the iphone 4s. both give you fast shutters, iso's and have decent apetures. alsp the processors may be the same but the larger amount of ram in the s3 will increase performance which does equate to a faster phone at the end of the day. especially on a unix based system. then you have removable battery and expandable memory so yes the s3 is leaps and bounds ahead of htc one x. also multi tasking isnt broken on samsung.
