I don't think the One X have access to Gloness. Here are couple of screen shots of GPS test after 2 mins, as you can see the Galaxy Note which do have access to Gloness can used twice the number of satellites than the One X.

All of this is done on a desk facing a large window.

Thanks for that. I think that makes the decision for me - HTC One X or Galaxy Note? I want the better GPS!

I'm a big HTC fan as I'm still using the HD2, now running Android ICS. A pity, but I might just have to go to Samsung. I also have the new iPad and don't want an iPhone.

Well, I don't think the missing GLONASS should be a problem, I get a GPS fix in a couple seconds, up to 2 metres +/- ... much better than on the S2 !

Note GPS far better, sorry if that disappoints anyone - I own both and lock speed and more importantly strength is better in the Note.

I find it interesting to note that GPS Test gives impossible accuracy figures for the One X (as in much better than it is actually possible to get on civilian GPS), but the actual tracks leave a bit to be desired against the Notes.

According to Anandtech, the One XL does have GLONASS support. I don't know whether this also holds true for the One X:

The GLONASS behavior of this system is like other QCT systems Ive seen, wherein it only looks for the GLONASS constellation when GPS SNR is low. You can see these with GPS Test and satellites numbered 6568.

I'd presume that's because the XL has the S4 Krait SoC, rather than the Tegra 3.

The screenshot from the AT&T One X above clearly shows GLONASS support, since you can't see that many satellites without it. I really wish the international one had the S4 SoC instead of the Tegra 3...

Yup, I agree with you there - S4 is superior to T3 in so many ways. Either they stup up their game with much improved drivers or I will consider a switch to the One XL once it's released in Europe.

The thing is: it's highly doubtful that the T3 will ever get similar battery life, no matter how many updates get released and how much optimization is done. At the end of the day, it's still 2 improved, more power efficient cores vs. 4 (probably rarely used) old, inefficient cores. The only possible case where T3 could get similar battery life would be if nearly every app supported 4 cores - don't know whether that will improve in the near future.
