Samsung Galaxy S3 takes on the HTC One X (video)

AT&T's HTC One X was the leanest, meanest, most powerful Android smartphone in town. Will Samsung's Galaxy S3 dethrone HTC's finest?

We love a good, clean fight between top smartphones, and the more evenly matched they are, the better. AT&T's HTC One X was our undisputed Android favorite before the Samsung Galaxy S3 blew onto the scene. But the GS3 stands up against the One X.

HTC or Samsung?

Which phone is your top Android pick?

Both have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as their operating systems, LTE capability, and they even share the same dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Qualcomm's fastest yet. Each smartphone heavyweight also packs an 8-megapixel camera with extra software muscle and 1080p HD video, and large, HD screens.

Yet there are areas where each phone distinguishes itself, from software to hardware extras, to the phone's overall design soul. Watch this Prizefight battle (above) to see which phone came out on top in CNET's Prizefight battle royale.

Editors' note: This Prizefight focuses on the AT&T HTC One X, not on Sprint's HTC Evo 4G LTE . At the time of filming, Sprint had not launched its LTE network. We wanted to test comparable network performance for both handsets. We'll evaluate the phone on Sprint's LTE network when the service comes to San Francisco or New York, CNET's mobile testing sites.
