Cellphone contract due for renewal — either HTC OneX or Samsung Galaxy SIII
My current 2 year cellphone contract is up for renewal this month. I have been using a HTC Desire for the last 2 years and absolutely loved it. Comparing to today’s Android phones, the Desire is very limited particularly when it comes to internal memory and storage.
I have already decided to stay with an Android phone so the iPhone is not even on my list to look at.
I have narrowed my search down to 2 phones namely the HTC OneX and the Samsung Galaxy SIII. On the left you see the HTC OneX which was announced by HTC at the Mobile World Conference and the specs is well known. On the right is what the Samsung SIII might look like. Samsung has not annouced the phone yet so there is not official images of it yet. From rumours and leaks, it seems to be in the same spec class as the HTC OneX.
I am a HTC fan so I am leaning towards the HTC at the moment but will wait till the Samsung SIII has been announced and then take both for a test and only then decide. I just hope that my mobile provider, MTN, will be bringing both to South Africa. They have already indicated that they will be bringing the SIII but have not seen anything about the HTC OneX.
From what I have read about the reviews of the HTC OneX, everybody is highly impressed with the phone particularly with the camera that is on this one. Seems like HTC has gone out of their way to make the camera experience a real good one. I use my camera phone fairly often so a good camera is a must on the phone. I am eagarly waiting for reviews on the Samsung SIII and what reviewers have to say about it. I am particurlarly looking forward to a side by side review of the 2 phones. Please comment below if you have seen or read a review like this.
