HTC One X is fitted with an 8.0 megapixel camera on the back panel which has some of the latest features like auto focus, face detection, smile detection, geo tagging etc. This camera also features recording videos with HD quality and simultaneously clicks images. If we look at any Samsung Galaxy S3 review, this phone sports similar camera with identical camera abilities. However the HTC One X out-performs the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it comes to capturing fast moving objects and burst shots. But then again, Samsung Galaxy S3 features a 1.9 megapixel frontal camera whereas HTC One X is fitted with a VGA camera. Both these devices have LED flash lights on their back. HTC One X comes with 32 GB of internal memory and there is no option of additional memory for the device; on the other hand Samsung Galaxy S3 is available in three different memory storage capacities, the basic variant comes with 16 GB memory storage capacity followed by 32 and 64 GB. The users can add additional memory to this device if they plan to utilize large chunks of data on their device. If we look at the HTC One X price in India, it is about Rs. 34, 749.

There is very little difference between the two devices, but HTC One X has slighter edge over Samsung Galaxy S3, as it’s cheaper and faster than the Korean mobile device. But which one finally takes the cake away, with time we all would know.
