I am look­ing for a top-class smart­phone and am con­fused be­tween the Sam­sung Galaxy SIII and the HTC One X. I need your ad­vice. The im­por­tant cri­te­ria are that the oper­at­ing sys­tem should be sim­ple to use for In­ter­net and e-mail and should have Swype fa­cil­ity, a good cam­era and sim­ple mu­sic up­loads. Please guide me as both phones are com­pa­ra­ble in price and ca­pa­bil­i­ties. With the Sam­sung S, my friend ran into soft­ware prob­lems within 18 months and the touch fea­ture de­vel­oped prob­lems.

Hari Mun­dra, on email Both the Sam­sung Galaxy SIII and the HTC One X are neat de­vices. While I would say the hard­ware build qual­ity of the HTC One X is su­pe­rior, the cam­era on the Sam­sung Galaxy SIII is bet­ter. Both phones are easy to use and run An­droid Ice-Cream Sand­wich. We sug­gest you test both the de­vices and their in­ter­faces. Swype is avail­able as a free down­load from Google Play store and can be in­stalled with­out any trou­ble. While buy­ing, do keep in mind that Sam­sung Galaxy SIII is now avail­able for around 35,000 af­ter a price cut.
