The screen is beautiful and i am very picky when it comes to that sort of stuff with countless hours playing with tv's, monitors calibrating and fixing them i have some sort of a fettish and trained eye so props for the screen.
But everything else just doesn't seem that great, i expected better from quad core from my move from sensation and the performance in some apps is less pleasing then it was for the sensation.

I just think there's nothing really fascinating that would make you want to keep the phone so i am thinking about getting the samsung galaxy s3.

Whats your thoughts.
Thats kind of surprising. You are moving from a 1.2ghz dual core scorpion to a 1.5ghz quad core A9. Each core is at least 60% faster. Sense 4.0 is also much better optimized than 3.0. Most likely down to user error. Try factory reset.

Wow. I've just wasted a good 10 mins of my life reading through this thread, and I'm at a loss to see the point of it.

If you don't like a phone, get another one. If you can't afford another one, then use these forums to figure out why your user experience is so much worse than everyone else's. If the phone is too big for you, then a bit of common sense could have prevented you from buying it in the first place.

The problem with threads like these is it can attract fanboys of other phones like moths to a flame. They will put in their 2c without even owning the One X, as if their opinion even matters.

I bought a Note, and didnt like it much. Did i join a Note forum and publicise my dislike? Of course not. Because I am not a pleb.

I simply returned it, bought an X, and told everyone how awesome it is.

Tegra 3 is a flop?

One of the most powerful chips currently available for phones/tablets is a flop?



The Galaxy S3's new GPU might theoretically have a bit more raw grunt than Tegra 3 but it lacks the developer support of NVIDIA. Developers are going to design games for Tegra 3, they're not going to focus on a chipset being used in only one phone.

There's nothing wrong with negative threads. We all use devices differently and some of the things pointed out that everyone might not use or use the same way are helpful. OP's post isn't one of those. What does "but everything else just doesn't seem that great" mean and how is it in anyway helpful? As for performance compared to the Sensation, I've never used one so can't comment. But the One X is significantly faster than my I9100 which I know was faster than friends Sensations so if OP's was slower maybe his phone's defective.

Every phone is not for everyone. The One X isn't for OP. But that joyous news could have been shared with OP's reseller rather than a forum of thousands of people who are unlikely to share his opinion. Even if he closed his post asking "what do you think?"

Isn't the SIII going to have a 4.7" or similar sized screen too? In which case it will also be too big for OP. I'm off to the SIII forum to await OP's "Just got the SIII and dislike it." thread. lolz!
