There is no shortage of Android phones in the market, and the two biggest manufacturers, Samsung and HTC, have often gone head to head on a variety of occasions in order to determine who takes the crown. As history states it, Samsung has often come out victorious, especially after the release of the Galaxy line of phones. However, as of late, HTC has also come up with a number of stunning smart phones, and the HTC One S was a really popular device at its time of launch. The phone was launched in February, a full three months before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S3, so it did have time to cement its place in the hearts and minds of Android users. However, how does the phone hold up to its counterpart in terms of performance and looks? Here’s our comparison:
HTC One S:
The HTC One S has a SUPER AMOLED display with a 4.3 inch screen running at 540×960 pixels. It includes 16 GB of built in storage and has a dedicated 1 GB of RAM to enhance games and app performance. The screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass. All the standard features that you would expect in an Android 4.0 compatible device are included, as well as a 8 MP camera with full HD recording as well as simultaneous image and video recording options. It has a front facing VGA camera too. The phone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, with a 1.5 GHz Dual Core Krait CPU. There is a dedicated Adreno 225 GPU inside too. All the custom features that you would expect in an Android phone are present, and you can alter the phone’s OS as per your requirements.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 was released in May 2012 and features a 4.8” Super AMOLED screen running at 720p. The phone uses the Exynos Quad chipset with a Quad Core 1.4 GHz Cortex A9 processor, meaning that at present, there is no app that can make the phone slow down. It is encased in a beautiful casing and is very thin. There is a 8 MP camera within the phone for full HD video and image recording. The phone also has an intelligent front camera that can sense when you have fallen asleep, and optimizes itself to save battery accordingly, making it one of the most advanced and friendly smart phones available on the market.
