It’s no secret that HTC and Samsung have released the two most exciting Android phones this year. The HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III will be the most sought-after handsets this summer, but consumers are going to have a hard time deciding which one is the best for them. Fortunately, HTC has put together “special packs” for its sales team which compares the two devices. I’m sure you can guess which One came out on top.
HTC’s matchup between the two phones has a few solid points, but we can’t help but smile when HTC labels the design of the Samsung Galaxy S III as “disappointing” and that its display is “dull” or has a lower density than that of the One X.
Below are some of the highlights from HTC’s comparison of the One X and Galaxy S III

HTC’s sales sheet claims that despite being 0.3mm thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC One X is lighter and feels slimmer than its competitor. HTC counterpoint for the Galaxy S III’s removable battery is that the One X can last a full day on a single charge. they could have left it at that, but they go on to say that having a second battery is a huge hassle due to the need to have a separate battery charger “which is often impractical, especially when traveling.”
But the best counterpoint on the list is when HTC compares the Samsung galaxy S III’s microSD card slot to the 32GB of internal storage and 25GB of DropBox cloud storage available to One X owners. Apparently, someone at HTC didn’t get the memo that the Samsung Galaxy S III can be purchased with 16, 32, or 64 GB of internal storage in addition to 50GB of DropBox cloud storage while still giving consumers the option to add more with a microSD card at any time.
Personally, I agree with many of the points that HTC highlights in its sales sheet. On paper, it’s extremely hard to compare the two devices and pick a clear winner.
