    I think your reply gives a good sense of how diverse the android community is. To me, rooting my phone is probably something I won't do. For those that are rooters, it sounds like Samsung may be a better option. My view of my phone changed when I got my xoom. The things that are important to me are ease of use, a good stable UI, and the ability to take and share great pics/video. In those respects I think the Evo is a better choice. I don't know that I would say the video on the GS3 is much higher quality. I believe the GS3 has a higher frame rate, but the reviews of the one x and evo video have been very good, and the evo has a dedicated camera chip which will no doubt make the picture and video taking experience better. As for a plastic body being better, all I can say is HUH? I'll take cnc'd aluminum with anodizing every single time over machined plastic. I bet the majority of the rest of the world would too.
    And when you drop your phone by accident and DENT that cnc'd aluminum with anodized, come back to us and let us know how it goes!

    There is not a chance the s3 display beats the One X. Same for the camera.

    Nothing better to do than repeating same arguments over and over.
    Have you seen the SGSIII screen in person?
    No? Didn't think so.
    Since you obviously seem to have no real interest in the SGS3, I suggest you go here:

    According to GSMArena.com, the camera is better. At the end of the comparison, they found that the winner is Android. Both phones do everything well, one does some things better and the other one does some other things better and then both phones do things just as well.

    The only reason someone picks the X over the S3 or visa versa is their own personal reason. I will pick the S3 over the X because it fits my needs better than the X, that's all. The X is a great phone, but not for me.

    "We were pleased with the video capture on the HTC One X. But the Galaxy S III is just too good to compete with - the resolved detail in the Galaxy S III videos is incredible and they are very smooth with accurate colors."

    "Overall, it's hard to see beyond the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III for the winner in the video recording category. The One X produces decent clips, but those are nowhere near the S III standard."

    "As you can see from the crops, in good lighting the Galaxy S III tends to produce images with more detail than both its predecessor and the HTC One X."

    "The processing algorithm of the new Samsung flagship is much more mature, too - it introduces very few oversharpening artifacts and loses little detail, while still managing to keep the noise under control. The One X on the other hand is a bit too aggressive with the sharpening and isn't doing nearly as good a job of removing the noise."

    "And there go a couple of more shots, which tell a similar story. Differences aren't huge, but the Galaxy S III still has an edge."

    "It's interesting to note that the HTC One X frames pictures differently from the video so you always end up with a result with a wider field of view. So if you've framed your video just right and think what you see is what you'll get you'd be wrong. The Galaxy S III in-video shots on have the same framing as the video.

    In good light, the two smartphones resolve about the same amount of detail here, but the One X has better contrast and it sharpens its images more aggressively, which makes its output look punchier. The Galaxy S III still has slightly better color reproduction, though.

    Things get vastly different in low light, when the bright F/2.0 optics of One X count big time. In such conditions the HTC flagship crushes its opponent, producing images with far less noise and much better contrast."

    "The Galaxy S III uses its resolution advantage to easily outdo the HTC One X in the first two charts. The two are much more evenly matched on the last studio challenge, but the S III shot has far less noise there."

    I'd say the S3 camera is better than the X.

    Yeah no. I'll take an f/2.0 lens and separate imaging processor over the S3's f/2.6 any day of the week.

    Samsung claims they altered the space between the sub pixels, but every hands on says there is no difference. Other than that, it is the same display.

    Both screens are excellent. The X may have an edge, but you can't tell the difference.

    "Still, both densities are high enough that you won't notice in regular usage. You can see slight jaggines on finer detail displayed on the S III screen but you have to look from extremely close range and quite carefully at that."

    "Super AMOLED has very deep blacks, vibrant colors and excellent viewing angles. There's some color shift when you reach the extremes, but the icons and text remain almost perfectly clear. Samsung's software also allows you to adjust the saturation - you get to choose from four levels of saturation raging from super punchy to slightly toned down.

    The One X's IPS LCD2 screen is about 66% brighter than the opposition. It has excellent color rendering and viewing angles. The blacks aren't quite as deep as what the AMOLED has to offer, but the contrast ratio is high enough to make this almost a non-issue."

    "the HTC One X is very good for an LCD and the excellent brightness contributes to that, but the non-reflectivity of the AMOLED screen gives the Samsung Galaxy S III the edge. In fact, the Galaxy S III emerges from our tests as the best outdoor performer we have seen to date."

    "Both Samsung and HTC have turned to Corning to keep their lustrous screens safe. But the Galaxy S III uses second-gen Gorilla Glass while the One X sticks with the original. According to Corning, Glass 2 offers the same level of protection, though it's slimmer"

    Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy S III seemingly has a new antireflective coating or layer applied, as it has shown excellent result in sunlight visibility tests, despite not being brighter than the Galaxy S II, for example, with about 330 nits brightness.

    Since the screen is strictly gonna be preference...how can one screen beat another? On paper? Specs?

    I think my RAZR screen is better than my Rezound screen....overall. Specs be damned. I listen to my eyes...not a spec sheet.

    And as for one phone beating another...this will be a never ending debate. My wants n needs have me picking my RAZR over the G Nex and Rezound. Based on specs....it shouldnt. I also want to get a Bionic. Based on specs...I shouldnt.

    Sorry, but the X screen is simply better. More accurate colors, higher true resolution, and none of the pentile nonsense. All of the hands-ons have said the screen on the S3 is good, but the one on the One X is in a whole other class.

    The GSMArena review is not totally accurate - e.g. HTC One X also uses Corning Gorilla Glass 2 unlike what they claim. They do seem to have a bias in favor the GS3.

    Also, the GS3 screen is NOT the same as the Nexus. It is significantly brighter, esp at 50%, which makes a huge difference.

    Yes, we should believe you over professional reviews and technical data supplied by the manufactures which proves it's a different screen.

    It's actually NOT Gorilla Glass 2.

    There are no professional reviews yet. Nobody has a device. Going based on a hands on at the release party, and anything released by Samsung PR.

    Maybe you wanna try being less of a fanboy and understand preference is just that...preference.

    Rezound has a sharper screen.....at closer than my normal viewing distance. At ...my...normal viewing distance.....its a wash.
    Rezound has a brighter and whiter screen. Thats doesnt really matter to me as I cant tell unless holding both phones side by side. It doesnt effect web page viewing and arent we always turning down the brightness to save battery life?

    After those things.....I prefer the colors and blacks better on my RAZR. Outdoor viewing and viewing angles on my RAZR. Watching Netflix on both phones and to me the more accurate colors on the Rezound dont make up for the the deeper blacks and the more vibrant colors on the RAZR. I just prefer the colors and blacks on the RAZR more.

    The Rezound screen looks like the brightness and/or contrast is cranked up too high. It really does looked washed out next to a RAZR when watching Netflix.

    I have 2 phones...RAZR and Rezound. Had a G Nex. Trust me when I say your normal viewing distance will make the difference whether you notice Pentile and screen res or not. Everybody isnt the same.

    My eyes dont need to be checked, they like what they like. Your head needs to be checked. Because fanboyism is a disease. Seriously.

    I know three people who were in London, and had the One X and SGSIII side by side.

    All three say the screen on the One X is much better, including the self-admitted Samsung fan who will be buying the SGIII anyway.
