We're going way off topic here. And let me get this straight, you had an Xperia T and now a HTC One X. So at what point did you have an Xperia S(L), Acro S or Ion? Because those are the devices this forum section is about (fuji board based devices that is).

About S4 Plus vs Tegra 3, you can't just compare like that. Did that Xperia T even have JB, because Sony's ICS firmware was very laggy. Most reviewers found the S4 Plus and Tegra 3 to be approximately as fast as each other. Tegra 3 has a better gpu which probably makes it feel more snappy. And bad battery life, compared to modern high end devices, One X and Xperia T had tiny batteries. Xperia Z2 has a 60% bigger battery than One X (and Xperia T because 50 mAh is no difference at all). Let's just say both of those devices had power issues. But there are S4 Plus devices with good battery life, it's just that Sony did a bad job with the Xperia T. On the other hand, most Tegra 3 devices have bad battery life, and it's not surprising considering it's made with 40nm transistors.
My current devices:
Sony Xperia S: Paranoid Android by deedwar
Google Nexus 7 (2013): Paranoid Android

I have used a xperia s and flashed ROMs before and I found it to be a very bad phone. (It was my brothers)
