The Android A-List: HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S IIHTC One X is the flagship model of the Taiwanese company's new 'One' range. It boasts a 4.7in display covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 2, an 8MP camera with 1080p recording, 32GB of inbuilt memory and a 1.5GHz Quad Core Tegra 3 processor running on Android 4.0 (AKA Ice Cream Sandwich). In our tests with Quadrant benchmarking, the One X scored an impressive 4868, which is higher than some tablets. This translates to smooth gaming and a zippy browsing experience.
The Samsung Galaxy S II, meanwhile, has a slightly smaller 4.3in display, a choice of 16GB or 32GB memory and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor based on the ARM Cortex A9 design. It runs on Android 2.3, although an official Ice Cream Sandwich update is imminent. When it comes to performance, the Samsung Galaxy S II is no slouch in the speed stakes but it cannot compete with the One X. It gained a score of 3460 points in our Quadrant test; 1408 less than its HTC rival.
