Help me decide HTC One X or Galaxy S III

by 3kgtsohc / June 20, 2012 4:07 AM PDT

I think I would like the screen better on the One X. Still unsure which camera is better both are good. The main issue I have with the One X is that it still may have wi-fi issues and the battery is internal. On the plus side its a solid build due to unibody construction.

The S3 on the other hand has a dimly lit screen but produces deep blacks and some vivid colors (?). The battery is larger and storage can be upgraded. Camera also seems good. I also like the S Voice feature which will probably improve in the future. The S3 also doesn't have any wifi problems.

It's a toss up between the two and I'm torn. Can any one list some more reasons why I should go with one or the other?

Main reasons for a smartphone for me:

1. Camera (old Pentax is only 5 megapixel and takes 320p video)
2. Features (S Voice, etc.)
3. Screen

Thanks.

Tell more about that WiFi issue.

The only issue I know is that users often expect the same range or distance they get with their laptop. Seasoned users or engineers don't expect that.

What issue are you writing about?

wifi

HTC stated that there was a hardware fault with the wifi antenna not being secure. Lots of people had to send them in for repairs not sure if newer models fixed the issue. From what I read some people had no signal at all even though they stood next to the router, etc.

Most phones rarely get to 2 years so you begin to wonder at times when folk get upset as the units are rolled out with better integration but loses out to user serviceable parts.

If that is a deciding factor, then your choice is easy!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
