If you're worried about it go out and buy the hot new thing, I'm sure looking forward to the 5.0 Nexus.

Exactly...and those who get the One X will be making a thread a few months later with "______ vs One X"

You guys should watch Transcendent Man with Ray Kurzweil on Netflix. Basically says since we are always using the latest (better technology) to create new technology the speed of our innovation is constantly accelerating faster than before.

I find it funny when people here say that they got VANILLA ICS and that They wud get jellybean down the year....I mean cmon everyone knows HTC ONE X [which is already rooted] will be getting all those through custom ROMS and will definetly be smoking GN...only diff is urs will be official...and btw most GN users use Custom roms only!

And again those saying SGS3 will beat ONE X...seriously?? without even knowing about its specs and how it will perform in REAL WORLD? That is just an assumption...Also the build quality comes into consideration and sammy [SGS 2 , GN] hassnt been good lately..PLASTICKY! but i m not assuming SGS3 will be the same...just like how some are assuming it wud smoke ONE X :P

There is a huge difference. Nexus custom roms use official drivers whereas htc one x/sgs3 aosp custom roms will be using drivers for sense/touchwiz HACKED to work on aosp, if they are able to use it at all. The original sgs was an exception because it was the hardware twin of the nexus s. As for the one x "smoking" the GN, well that will probably be true for the newer games, but in other more practical aspects like web surfing, email, calls, sms, music, etc, I suspect there won't be any noticeable difference.

Now that I've had a nexus device, I don't think I'll ever go back to touchwiz/blur/sense. I'm only waiting for the nexus tablet to be released so that I can give google my money.

I am only buying nexus devices from here on out.I have T-Mobile and I have been burned by both Samsung and HTC in relation to software updates I also hold T-Mobile responsible to share the blame. And I do prefer aosp over touchwiz or sense. While you can argue that the said device get aosp builds through custom roms it often take months and initially in alpha and unstable condition due to manufacturer/carrier not providing source in timely fashion and devs needing to work around the way the software is built around the said hardware manufacturers GUI.

have you seen one X drop test video and any other shattered screen with just light drop (with screen face down)?
not to mention the screen flickering defect of one X etc etc etc
questionable build quality of htc..

exactly
that's why build quality is not the same as the screen. so why bother make gimmick about powerful build quality blah blah blah if the screen can be shattered with small accident like that?

well yes,samsung's build quality is plasticky,that's why i use case protector like otterbox to protect it. since i don't want my screen shattered because i know some people use their phone naked and blabbering about "awesome" build quality

By build quality i meant the overLl quality..the feel of the phone with that Polycarbonate design is just awesome on HOX..i held it yesterday and the sgs2 and GN plastics feel just too underwhelming!
And regarding AOSP builds...it doesnt matter...they will run smooth on that awesome hardware nonethless..it will be the same as using an official update with maybe some sense feature here or there

yeah my galaxy s runs also smooth with the ics builds, but it took very long to get there, but the biggest issue is with all that custom builds, because they had to reverse engineer the drivers, the battery live sucks. I will never go back again to such an device as long as I can get a nexus, were I have the guarantee that we get the drivers to make a real aosp with good experience and good battery life.

Its simple, on the sgs I had to flash I think 1000 times and i was never fully happy, on the nexus I can flash any custom rom and all just works great, and that is since the nexus is on the market, so I bought the nexus and flashed aokp because I like the features it has and stay with it since then.

About HTC great build quality I can only say pffffft no thanks, i had 2 HTC phones in my life, on both the build quality sucked, if I read now the one x reviews, then I think it is still the same, it is not good. Even my Galaxy S looks after 1 1/2 year better then my HTC phones looked after 4 months.

But if you like the one x then get it and enjoy it, I think it is your decision and it need to be good for you and not for anyone else.
