It's the dogfight battle of the year!  Aaron puts the international Samsung Galaxy S III up against the international HTC One X.  The Galaxy S III packs a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, HSPA+ connectivity, a 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 with TouchWiz.  The HTC One X offers a 1.5 GHz quad-core NVDIA Tegra 3 processor, 4.7-inch HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p recording, a front-facing camera, 1,800 mAh battery, Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4, and HSPA+ connectivity.

They're both killer Android phones and at the top of the charts, but only one can win in a dogfight.  Which will it be?  Part 1 of 2.

Shivdev Singh Bhatia
Shivdev Singh Bhatia Both the phones in this dogfight are the international versions. I have the Rogers one x and it is much smoother than the s3. Packing a bunch of gimmicks don't make a good phone.

Josh Lazenby
Josh Lazenby @Jubran. I don't see the option for video calls in the stock dialer, but you can always use apps. 4G on the XL model. And no, not much lag at all... pretty much none.

Robert Mathias
Robert Mathias Samsung, wish htc would put a bigger battery in the one x, especially if it's not removable
Guillermo Perez-Arguello
Guillermo Perez-Arguello SAMSUNG GS3 RULES! all you HTC fans are loko. the Evo 4G LTE is a joke and has plenty of issues, the HTC ONE X is nice in design, but the GS3 DESTROYS IT IN EVERY OTHER CATEGORY! SPEED, RAM, SCREEN SIZE, BATTERY LIFE, FUNCTIONALITY, come on guys... I swear I used to be a die hard HTC FAN since that piece of crap called the HERO. lol. I loved/hated that thing. I felt the last straw with HTC when they introduced the EVO LINE KILLER (in a bad way) which was the craptastic Evo 3D. I bought and spent 700 bucks because i wasnt up for a upgrade, just so that I could buy a slimmer, thinner, narrower phone that I could'nt get used to because the evo was wider and had more space for my hands. since then HTC screwed up and the Galaxy S2 sealed the deal with me and Sammy! Keep it up baby!

Amie Lee Greenway
Amie Lee Greenway Samsung all the way. When and if HTC fixes their call quality, then I may consider taking their side. HTC drags people in with their totally custom UI but that's about it.
Jake Ettery
Jake Ettery HTC
Josh Lazenby
Josh Lazenby Wish you would have done it with the International One XL instead of the regular X. The XL has a more powerful processor, GPU, and better battery life. 4G LTE on top of that.
Waqas Ahmad Khan

Joel Diaz
Joel Diaz Samsung for tv's and HTC for phones.
Jason Stroman
Jason Stroman Question does the SIII have expandable memory card access? I know it has the bigger & removable battery. If the memory is expandable I'll gladly take the SIII despite the Pentile Matrix, but Exynos will also make up for that. Like hits build quality but have to go with SIII despite the plastic build. Both awesome phones both literally s**t on my Droid X2 but I'd rather have SIII for said reasons. -_-

Daniel Marin HTC anytime.
