what are u looking for in the device?




i have 12w11 and dont have yellow tint issues...

battery life of the One X is HORRIBLE... even though it has 1800mAh battery it suck it like crazy... i got fedup and gave the One X to my bro to use




to be honest the camera and screen of Xperia S are WAY better than One X




Android cant take full advantage of the hardware... just recently it has started using dual-cores properly...




very good decision!




the video regarding browser is not accurate




quad core is a HUGE battery hog... even while calling the device HEATS up a LOT!!!

I wouldnt care a lot about custom ROMs. Though its fun to flash

What I'm looking for:
-Nice screen
-Battery life thats decent (HOX cant even read the battery properly)
-Nice camera
-Nice deisgn
-Fast web browsing.

So whats your opinion on this? I noticed you have both since you made a kernel for the hox and xs.

Thanks

The One X is a beautiful phone. Better processor, LTE, "unibody" construction. Unfortunately the Canadian version of the phone is only in white, and I do not want that. I've only seen the HSPA+ ones available for import so that bugged me too.

In the end, I bought the Canadian XPERIA S for 499. Which is going to be cheaper than importing the One X.

The screen on the XPS is better than the One X in pixel density, but some say it is not as good in contrast/color. For me it is much better then the overkill AMOLED on Samsungs. Battery life is better by a margin on the XPS, mostly because of less cores and less HTC Sense. The camera is hands down better on the XPS, Sony has years of experience in digital imaging. The design is your personal choice. I like both phones though, they're just different. The browser is great on the XPS and it has the WebGL patchset Sony developed, which allows it to run 3D graphics inside the page.

Check the One X forum section. They have lots of quality control issues, from yellow tint to flickering screens to faulty batteries.

I guess I should try a demo then. And I agree about AMOLED. Had the sgs2, comparing it to the one x, it exaggerates the colors, doesn't feel natural.

My set luckily doesn't have any flickering issues. The yellow tint is also really minor. Though I agree on the battery part..

I don't have a Tegra 3 phone, but I spent some time with the dev board on Linux. Mostly it uses the coprocessor when the device is sleeping or when the load is very low. It engages two cores when under average load and only uses the remaining two when the two are overloaded.

I thought about swapping to the Canadian One X too, but I am a firm believer that a phone stops being easy to handle in the 4.3-4.5 range (too big for pockets etc)

The LTE, 4.7 screen with the 1800 battery is shameful IMO, at the best of times it is still going to be a battery hog. And 16gb of storage (9.6 you can actually use) is shameful for a flagship device.

The Sony just works, reliable, good mix of size, battery and speed.
