When choosing a phone, there are certain things which are objectively comparable. First among them when you’re looking at the hardware component – phone specifications.

HTC One X vs HTC One S

By rights, with far superior specifications, the HTC One X should wipe the floor with the HTC One S.

On top of that, the HTC One S shares some of the best tactile elements of the One X, feeling firm and high quality while benefiting from a smaller form factor.

HTC One X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is, in the opinion of Whatphone, much underrated device. It sells enough, even now, to comfortably make the Whatphone top 7 because it offers a truly differentiated capability – an enormous, eye catching screen. The HTC One X is slightly more refined and has a stronger, unibody feel, compared to the plastic of the Galaxy. Why not lift up the hood on both and check out Whatphone’s feature by feature comparison between two very different devices. The HTC One X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

HTC One X vs Samsung Galaxy S2

If you’ve read any of the Whatphone reviews and analysis of the Samsung Galaxy S2, you’ll know we love it. At launch in 2011, it was months ahead of its time. Now, it’s offered on plans which are significantly cheaper than the HTC One X and, to many, represents huge value for money at that price. The HTC One X is newer, more modern, has all the bells and whistles but is it really a better phone for the average user  – or, more importantly, for you.

The HTC One X vs iPhone 4S

In some ways, the competition between these devices is unfair, separated, as they are, by more than 6 months between launch times. The iPhone 4S represented a relatively small step forward for users. The HTC One X came out several months later – almost literally a lifetime in mobile phone terms.

Although these are still some of the best mobiles in the Australian market, they’re not the pick of the bunch ( any more ) and their price reflects that. If having a fantastic handset, rather than the most expensive one, is what matters to you then you may well be comparing the HTC One X vs iPhone 4S.
