The HTC One X And Samsung Galaxy S2 - Comparing Their Key Features

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 133

The HTC One X is the manufacturer's latest flagship, sporting key features such as the new Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' operating system, HTC's most advanced camera and screen to date, a new version of HTC Sense, and wealth of other impressive features. In this article I will compare the HTC One X with the Samsung Galaxy S2, which is Samsung's most popular Android smartphone to date, so you can decide which phone best suits your needs.

The HTC One X showcases HTC's latest advancements in just about every part of its spec list. The screen measures up at 4.7 inches, so it is rather large. Despite this size, the resolution stands at 720x 1280, so the combination of high resolution and large dimensions ensures great multimedia usage such as watching HD videos or viewing photo slideshows. The screen technology utilised is super IPS LCD2 capacitive, meaning that on screen content is bright, with great detail and colour rendering. The Samsung Galaxy S2 on the other hand has a Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen. This screen is well known for its brightness, display quality and wide viewing angles. The resolution and size are below those of the HTC One X. This is largely due to the fact that the phone was released over a year ago, whereas the HTC One X has much more up to date technology, having only been unveiled last month. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a 4.3 inch screen, so it is only slightly smaller. The resolution of this is 480x 800, which at the time of the phone's release was considered cutting edge which goes to show how quickly smartphone technology evolves.

The HTC One X comes with the new version of Android, called 'Ice Cream Sandwich. This sports features like Face Unlock, along with a massive overhaul to the aesthetics and functionality of the user interface. The Samsung Galaxy S2 on the other hand, ships with the previous version of Android which is dubbed 'Gingerbread'. The handset supports an update to the new version though, with most UK networks rolling out an over the air update shortly.

When it comes to processing power, the HTC One X reigns supreme, with a quad-core processor on hand to provide outstanding performance, with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. This makes it one of the most powerful smartphones out there, matched by only a couple of other handsets. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has slightly less processing power, with a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip. This is still capable of providing a great user experience, and unless you are well versed in this technology, you are unlikely to notice the difference during day to day use.

As you can see, the HTC One X is a very impressive smartphone. However, the Samsung Galaxy S2, despite being a year old is still an excellent choice. If you want the latest and greatest smartphone technology, the HTC One X may be the phone for you. If you want a reliable, high performance which is the choice of some 40 million users then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy S2.
