Comparison between Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S3 and HTC One X


As I mentioned in my previous post, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus by Google is a good alternative to either Galaxy S3 and HTC One X (which I compared earlier).

PhoneArena website did a very detailed comparison of all 3 phones. All of those, have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, almost similar size of screen, thickness and weight. The Nexus phone has no expandable memory, like the One X. It comes with standard 16GB( HSPA+) and 32GB(LTE). It also has Super AMOLED screen, same as the S3, while the One X has Super LCD2.

The Nexus has a 1750 mAh battery while the One X and S3 have 1800 mAh and 2100 mAh batteries respectively. On the other hand, with the Nexus, there is an option of getting an expandable battery of 2100 mAh for $30.

So far, there is no reason to choose either one of the 3 devices. Now let's take a look at the costs! The HTC One X retails for $580, Samsung Galaxy S3 for $800 and Galaxy Nexus for $400. This would definitely be a deal-breaker! The price differences are vast enough to confirm that the Galaxy Nexus would be the best buy.
