One of the most sought after gadgets to make an appearance on the mobile market this year is, without shadow of a doubt, the HTC One X. Undeniably it has its flaws such as the lack of a microSD slot, and the built-in battery might pose a problem in some circumstances, but nevertheless the HTC One X is one of the greatest handsets currently available for purchase.
So, have you wondered how powerful it actually is compared to let’s say, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus? We did, and apparently so did the guys over at DroidLife who laid their hands on both an HTC One X and a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, loaded them up with a bunch of benchmarks and let the battle commence.
To be honest, it’s not a fair fight. The HTC One X is clearly far more superior in terms of performances than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It packs a 12-core GPU and a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, which is far more beefy than the dual-core OMAP4460 found on the Galaxy Nexus, but for the sake of science (and giggles) the Galaxy Nexus must be sacrificed.
Overall, the benchmark results were interesting to say the least. The HTC One X was almost constant at around 50 FPS in Nenamark2 whilst the Galaxy Nexus was struggling at roughly 20 FPS, and on Quadrant the HTC One X yielded 4718 points, more than double compared to the Galaxy Nexus. With this much power the mobile gaming segment is bound to make a significant leap in the near future.
As a side note, if you’re wondering whether or not the HTC One X version sporting the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (AT&T’s HTC One X) will be as good as the Tegra 3, don’t worry. It might be even better (International HTC One X vs AT&T’s HTC One X). And since AT&T’s version of the smartphone has come up …
HTC One X Release Date and Price at AT&T
The carrier has announced that the HTC One X release date is scheduled for May 6th. The best smartphone currently on the market can be yours for just $199.99 on a two year contract. However, if you pre-order it from Radio Shack you’ll be able to save up even more.
That’s about it folks. This was truly a display of power from the HTC One X. If you want to see the results with your own googly eyes don’t hesitate to head down to DroidLifeand check out the benchmark screenshots for yourself.
Thanks Droidlife for sharing the HTC One X vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus benchmark results.
