Samsung Galaxy S III Vs. HTC One X: Head to Head Hardware Comparison

With the market release date of the SamsungGalaxy S III approaching quickly, the world of smartphones looks more abundant with the number of offerings that it has at the present moment at its disposal.
Today, in this article I am going to compare two of the newest and the best entrants in the smartphone world: Samsung GalaxyS III and HTC One X. Both the phones are in the same league as far as the pricing is concerned; let us find out what is main difference and where does it lie.

Display and Size
The Samsung Galaxy S III boasts of a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, which has a pixel resolution of 1280x720 p that makes the ppi 306. HTC One X sports a 4.7 inch Super IPS LCD 2 screen, which has the same resolution as the S III has.  In the very first first round HTC One X seems to be languishing behind a little.
The Samsung handset comes packed with 1.4GHz cortex A9 processor, which is well complimented by a 1GB RAM and Mali-400MP GPU. The other handset in question the HTC One X spices the comparison with its 1.5GHz quad core processor, 1GB RAM and ULP GeForce GPU. S III equals the score in this section.
Both the devices sport 32GB onboard memory. But unlike the S III, HTC does not come with a card slot. The expansion capacity of the SIII is 64GB. HTC wins the round hands down.
In the battery segment both the devices somewhat disappoint me. The Galaxy SIII has a Li-Ion 2100mah battery, in reply the HTC One X sports even weaker battery of 1800 mAh. In order to keep such giant handsets alive for longer period of time both the companies could have done better in this section.  
In the connectivity segment both the handset offer plentiful options. The Samsung Galaxy S III is 4G LTE compatible. Then it has Blurtooth 4.0 with A2DP and EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, and MicroUSB 2.0 connectivity. HTC One X is a 3G compatible handset, which has all the above mentioned connectivity specs. But the dearth of 4G compatibility pushes it a step behind the SIII.

Both the handsets have got an 8MP camera on the rear side of the body and in the front the SIII has a 1.9 MP camera and the HTC One X has 1.3 MP one. Once again the SIII emerges victor.
There are other features to compare but I will stick to the hardware section only.
The Verdict
After going through all the hardware specs of both the handsets one has to come to a conclusion that says that the SIII is better handset between the two of them. It is not just the better handset but has got all the potential to go on to become the best smartphone of the world, that too in the foreseeable future. Samsung Galaxy S III is the thing.
