The Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X handsets are extremely similar in terms of their size and weight. The One X is marginally smaller at 70 x 134 compared to 71 x 137. The couple of millimetres difference is neither here nor there.

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is thinner than the One X but slightly heavier. It measures in at 8.6mm and 133g while the HTC One X is 8.9mm and 130g. The figures are so similar the two phones can be considered the same size and weight.

The screen is another area where the pair are very similar. The Galaxy S3 has a Super AMOLED 4.8-inch display while the HTC One X has a minutely smaller Super IPS 4.7-inch one.

The processor is an important element to a smartphone. The HTC One X uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core 1.5GHz chip. Samsung uses its own Exynos 4 Quad 1.4GHz chip for the Galaxy S3 which is unsurprisingly quad-core.

The Galaxy S III comes in three storage options, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The phone also offers expansion possible via a microSD card slot. In comparison the HTC One X is quite restrictive when it comes to storage with only a 32GB model and no microSD card slot.
