GS3 or HXO

I currently have a HTC Desire HD. Decent phone, works pretty well.

However, looking at upgrading I think. I'm deciding between the Galaxy S III and the HTC One X.

Just wanted to know what your thoughts were on it? Not sure if anybody has either of them either.

I saw the thread about the GS3 but wasn't anything too conclusive there.

Re: GS3 or HXO

I have the HTC One X and can highly recommend it, played with them both and went for the One X purely because I prefer Sense to Touchwiz.
The Tegra chip was a pull to as it gives me access to Tegrazone and should in theory be better for gaming.

Get down a phone shop and have a play really, or if you haven't decided at the lan come have a look at mine One X, Really its going to come down to which interface / brand you prefer.

My sister has the one s and it's silly fast. Plus the design of the one series is excellent.but if you like flashing custom roms then the sg3 may be better because Samsung unofficially supports the rom community

Re: GS3 or HXO

I went for the Galaxy S3. Love it!

It all comes down to which brand you like better really and which (out of HTC Sense and TouchWiz (which still seems like something that Si would likee)) UI you prefer.

If you're not in any rush, wait till LAN. Plat has the HTC X One and I have the S3. You can play with both (of us)

Re: GS3 or HXO

I need a smartphone as my one has just died. I'm going to have a play with both of them today and make my decision later.

Re: GS3 or HXO

I have an 02 contract but the phone is completely unlocked, no bloatware was a massive bonus.

I think the next phone I buy will be outright. Wasn't in a position to pay that much money at the time.
