Locked. Thanks to Styrafoam and BlahBlahYouToo for highlighting what appears to be some form of astroturfing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astroturfing) or shill advertising. I will say that I'm sorry to you guys for letting this thread go on like it has for so long. Another moderator and I did do some research into EliteIntel earlier but apparently we didn't dig deeply enough. I had suspicions from the beginning but I should have googled key words from the post and I would have spotted it sooner. Moderator PM So what are your opinions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X? Apparently many reviews have given credit for Samsung Galaxy S3's supposedly premium and luxurious build quality (something which the previous SGS2 did not have). The Samsung Galaxy S3 uses a polycarbonate body material and also has a metallic trim. It has a metallic finish for the pebble blue version and a glossy finish on the white version. The HTC One X has a polycarbonate uni-body which means you can open the phone from the back and the battery is not replaceable. So it seems Samsung has really improved their build quality to a level even higher than HTC's. Though the design is still questionable. Spec-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S3 packs a Exynos 4 quad-core processor which is better than the Tegra 3 quad-core processor of the HTC One X. But it's useless comparing the International versions if you're from the US.

Some versions of the HTC One X can not record at 30 FPS and sometimes even dip below 20 FPS which is poor.

Some say that the HTC One X's design lacks ergonomics.

However both are great phones and definitely the best Android phones of 2012. For the enthusiasts? The Samsung Galaxy S3 provides a much longer battery life so for people who use their phones often for Internet browsing, music and movies, the Samsung Galaxy S3 offers top-notch battery life which can be replaced with more powerful batteries.
