Samsung Galaxy SIII or HTC one X+

Posted Dec 05, 2012 at 9:48 pm in Threads > Opinions

My contract is about to end (ATT), which phone should I pick ATT HTC One X+ or Galaxy SIII?

  • Bpear96

    Get the Galaxy S 3, sell it unopened, and then get a 16Gb No contract nexus 4 :D

    Haha well you could do that, if you really want to sign a contract.

    But anyways, if i had to chose, I would probably go for the One X+ for the nicer screen, design (imo), and Tegra optimized games can be pretty nice. Both are great phones though.
    You might want to consider the LG Optimus G, it has GREAT specs, and recently got its bootloader unlocked (unofficially) if your into that kind of stuff. Since its so similar to the Nexus 4, it will probably get some rock stable AOSP ROMs soon enough.

    I have a the old AT&T One X model btw, Loaded up with CM10 :D

      One X+ there is no replaceable battery and so people are not advising, I had an HTC Desire and its battery is gone right after 2 years, what if same happens for the 1X+

    I’m sticking with the S3 until HTC stops with their Fragmentation and starts committing to their “Flagships.”

    I was with HTC for my first 3 android years…….Hero, Evo 4G, Evo 3D and was quite satisfied…..then I got a GS2 and loved it, especially because of the simplicity of rooting. Now my brother got the HTC Evo 4G LTE and my other brother got the Galaxy S3. After trying them both I decided to get the GS3. It has much better features and its NFC works correctly unlike the 4G LTE (you can’t transfer pictures because they are too large -_-)

    The X+ looks great but it has nothing new to offer except a better battery.

    I actually concur with Bpear, you should go for a Nexus 4 over those 2 choices. Grab it off contract and wait for a more improved on contract option, or buy the thing of most value and resell to finance the purchase (Note 2, iPhone5?)

      learnt from forums that Nexus 4 build quality is bad and S3 is better than that (just build quality). Also what would the LTE difference make, my city just got LTE and I see better reception and quality now.

    Sammy is always superior

    HTC ONE X is pretty awesome, the design quality is terrific and the camera is amazing.

  • gp126904

    Out of those two I would say the SIII just because imo Touchwiz is a less bloated UI than Sense. But have you thought about the Note II? That may just be my next phone, and while it is such a massive phone I think most people can get used to it cause it has so many awesome features.

      too big for my hands

    I think One X+ because HTC give Amazing Camera Features as well as Sound .

  • sandy105

    the htc one x+ has the better screen ,easy to use camera modes,and 64gb of staorage and better battery life than one x.
    it will also run those tegra games which are really nice on that super lcd 2 screen..
    and it looks way better and well built than plasticky s3

  • thr970

    I picked the S3 cause its release on all the carriers, the same. So Samsungs support has been quick ie: updates. Also my sister has the HTC EVo Lte but after using both phones would like the S3.

  • gavinb

    HTC One X. It’s a great phone, the only annoying thing about it is that HTC aren’t exactly quick at updating it to JB. If you are happy to root and install a custom ROM this is less of a problem.

  • Guitaraholic

    Samsung S3 or Note 2 if u want the contract phone…. otherwise i’d follow the suggestions to sell it and get a Nexus 4

  • amIT29

    S III does it for me for these points
    1.) it has FM radio (its very popular in india still atleast, and as i travel a lot helps me to kill time )

    2.) Been a social media junkie i keep couple of moview , books and even tv series on phone ( breaking bad, 2.5men ….) having a sd card slot makes life so easy for me to store and even copy /share stuffs with others

    3.) blue is my favorite colour :)

  • ReaL_MaD

    The SIII has an overall better feel to it for me – both from a physical perspective and for the smoothness of the UX itself.

    In addition, you`ll almost guaranteed get updates faster than with and HTC so SIII seems like the better choice overall.

  • r90a22

    HTC fan here. Owned nothing but HTC phones. Would be nice if HTC built a better quality phone. Seems to me they are a little to much plastic, and all over the board with their phones. Too many and not good enough quality. Considering on try samsung galaxy next time

  • Nikhilahuja

    HTC One X+ quietly brilliant than s3 ;)

  • JohnnyRocket

    After trying both of them (long live gadget friends) I find I actually loved both of them ;)
    But if I had to choose, I’d go for the S3. Just had a better overal feel for me.
    Although both didn’t impress me enough to sell my S2 and upgrade to one of them.

  • pol biswas

    I will go with sumsang galaxy s 3 compare to HTC one x .because Samsung has a good reputation worldwide. One of the best thing they have service stationa every nook and corner.

  • Nicholas Rynjah

    If removable battery and expandable storage is what you need, then get the S3 but if you prefer a good looking phone then go for the One X+. Personally I’d go for the S3 simply because of the above reason.

  • redraider133

    Samsung seems a little better with updates plus if removable battery and storage give the s3 an advantage in my book. Both are good phones so I would say whichever you like more, go play with them both in store and decide.
