HTC One X body is developed by using plastic and Galaxy S III comes with poly carbonate body. Both phones outer shield is deteriorating as according to reports. Samsung Galaxy S III is loosing its shine and Colour while HTC One X’s is getting out pulp of its fabricates.


Both the Phones HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III phones are beasts in respect of Hardware. These phones have best Hardware from devices which are running Android.
