    Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III vs. HTC One X: Alien vs. Predator - GSMArena.com

    For anyone still debating between these 2, this will help. It's a very detailed comparison.

    Very good review! I am going with the SGSIII! I was already going that way and this review just confirmed my decision.

    Another thing is my familiarity with Samsung. My wife just went from a Samsung Vibrant to the One S on T Mobile and learning a new UI is driving her nuts. She is taking the One S back for the Galaxy S II. I told her to wait for the SIII but she feels that is too big.

    I have had a Captivate, OG Atrix, Atrix 2, Skyrocket, and now have the ATT GNote and International GNote (with ICS) so I am very familiar with the touch wiz UI so that counts for a little bit in favor of the SGSIII as well.

    Yes, I saw this yesterday and the GSIII was the clear winner. However, Mashable posted yet another story about the pentile screen technology being the Achilles Heel.

    Meantime, over at the One X forum, the thread started about bugs with the phone now has over 89 responses. And this is just the first week since the phone was released!

    Since I'm a newbie with Andriod phones, is this normal and can we expect this with the GS3, too?

    Muaaahahaha... Muahahaha..

    I have a Galaxy Note with a pentile screen and I for the life of me cannot see what people are talking about. I have excellent vision, but I have to believe people when they say they can see the difference. I cannot. I had the skyrocket which was super AMOLED plus (non pentile) the Galaxy Note which is pentile and I cannot see a big difference except the resolution in favor of the GNote.

    You can expect some bugs but I think Samsung got slammed over the Galaxy S series of phones and their GPS, so all the Samsung's I have owned since then have been pretty bug free although not perfect. The skyrocket BT was borked with my car until they sent out an update. The Galaxy Notes have been very bug free from my perspective.

    I think you can expect this with any highly touted phone release. Anyone remember the iPhone grip of death? Mostly nothing, but made it's way onto major tech suite news, not just forums.

    This is all speculation...nobody has a retail unit to do a real comparison with.

    It's not speculation, it's a review of the units they had. One X is retail. Differences in the GS3 production model will be minor in any. Samsung is the one giving these phones to the press for review.

    Personal preference. I had the original S and the screen was excellent. Is the X screen better? According to most people, yes, but according to most people, you won't be able to tell the difference.

    I think he means that it's speculation because no one has seen a retail version. Based on the numbers, the X has the advantage, but people don't live in/with numbers, they see the world with their own eyes and everyone's eyes are different.

    I wish I could find a one x locally so I could for my own opinion. Haven't found one yet.

    The Galaxy S2 was the BEST phone of 2011. And the Galaxy S3 is the best phone of 2012 period.

    Watch out, the HTC boys that are trolling here are going to jump all over you for that statement.

    To be honest in my eyes the clear winner is the GS3. The One X is still nice but when you actually think about it...

    The S3 = the One X + Much more. One X advocates only say 2 things (Camera and Screen are better) But the point is, the Camera and Screens of these 2 devices are so similar in terms of quality it doesnt even really matter. Theyre basically the same.

    The S3's features alone are enough for me to say that its better than the One X. Add in the SD card slot and the Removable battery (that is also bigger). Then it puts it right over the top. Its just enough to say its better than the One X.

    As for TW vs Sense, its strictly preference. In any other instance I would like Sense (TW is kind of ugly lol) but the features make me want TW so I'll take that along with go launcher or nova launcher and keep moving. Give me my S3 now.

    The One X does look much nicer than the S3, I've gone for an S3 but almost went for the One X just because it look so much nicer. I think if the battery was on par/better with/than the S3 and there was a clear method of doing a hard reset (battery is sealed in the phone) i would have chosen it over the S3.

    According to a lot of reviewers the one x's 1800mh lasted longer than many phones with 2100mh+ batteries. And besides the screen and camera being better, the one x has a slightly faster quad core processor. It all comes down to whether or not you use a lot of storage, because if not the one x trumps the S3 in every way, particularly in not being ugly, both in body and UI.

    Just because other phones have 2100mah batteries it doesn't mean that the S3 will have the same battery usage. The GSM link shows quite clearly that the S3 has a better battery, even if they did something wrong during their testing the difference is so great that its hard to ssee how the HOX could ever be better on battery.

    How many phones have a 2100 battery? The galaxy note has a 2500 the razr maxx a 3500, what other phone has a 2000+ battery out of the box? also, it depends on how well the os and launcher are optimized and what's under the hood processor wise.

    One MAJOR advantage the one-x has is you can buy it now. With the release timeframe of the gs and gsII in the us...who knows when it will get here.

    I do agree from what we can gather, the gs3 is the superior phone.

    The One X camera is so good that it strips the leaves off trees! (Looking at you, GSM Arena)

    Seriously, if he wants to do an actual camera comparison, then it needs to be the same conditions. Yes, that includes the freakin SEASON, time, weather, etc. I'm incredibly curious to see how the cams stack up, but it needs to be done right. Also, his screen section sounds garbage, completely contradicting what I've heard from people who've held them side-by-side: (One X blows it away in display). Finally, the performance comparison is moot, as I'll be looking at the US SGS3 with (most likely) an S4 processor. I can't wait to hold the SGS3 in my hand myself and compare it with my EVO 4G LTE.

    you know that clock speed is not a true indication of speed right? The exynos at 1.2 ghz smokes the s3 snapdragon chip at 1.5 ghz. The quad core exynos as seen in the benchmarks obliterated the "faster" tegra 3 chip. The UI moves smoother based on the videos too. Even qaulcomms own s2 snapdragon at 800 MHz as faster than the s1 snapdragon at 1000mhz. The Samsung hummingbird chip beats them both at 1000 MHz.
