BENCHMARKS -Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X vs SGS2 vs Iphone4S vs others

If you are a geek, you will know that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was recently launched on 3rd May 2012.
And if you are a geek like me, you may be interested in how it performs against other top line smartphones.
I don't own one, but I've scoured the web for some numbers and this is what I've got so far.
And I've listed a few others that might be interesting for comparison.
Please remember benchmarks only measure processing power, not quality of user interface, which in itself is subjective. Benchmark numbers can change each time it is done, so the numbers are approximate.

As you can see the SGS3 is kind of the beast leading the pack at the moment, with the HTC One X coming close. No doubt, these records are meant to be broken, and new challengers will arise.

  1. Hi nice post. I want to buy a good smart phone from the BB 10, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3. Can you compare them as well?

  2. Hi Indianist, as the iphone 5 is not out, there is no way to make this comparison now. I think the important questions are, what will you be using your phone for? What is important to you? Any specific applications? Are u already in an Apple ecosystem? For the average user I think both Apple and Android are fine. I personally favour Android.

  3. Actually, I am eyeing the Galaxy Note 2

  4. I can take a photo when when i'm shooting a video with HTC One X I love its Features.
