The HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III

There was a review done by PC Advisor recently about the two biggest (literally) Android devices available this year. These devices are the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The HTC One X had a significant lead over the Samsung Galaxy S III in terms of time on the market. During this time, the HTC One X was able to capture a lot of the market and many commented that this device was one of the best that HTC had produced for a while.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 was released and did take a lot of the shine away from the HTC One X. The Galaxy S3 is slightly bigger than the One X but not enough to be very noticeable. The Galaxy S3 is thinner and measures 8.6mm whereas the One X measures 8.9mm.

In Australia Samsung Galaxy S3 plans are more expensive than HTC One X plans so therefore the HTC still has some good sales.

The Apple iPhone 5 can’t be far away

Sprint, a telecommunications company in the US has lowered the price of the iPhone 4S by $50 from August 8th. This is a strong indication that the company is shortly expecting the release of the iPhone 4S.

This makes the price of the 16GB Apple iPhone 4S $150 on a 24 month contract. The 32GB and the 64GB is $250 and $350 respectively.

It is expected that the iPhone 4S will be announced in the September, most likely the 12th. Keeping with Apples tradition of quick releases after announcements, it would be highly likely that the phone will be available for purchase a couple of weeks after that.

Apple recently reported a strong increase in revenue, rising to $35 billion. This was however, lower than the market had expected so the share price dipped nearly 10% as a result.

In Australia, the iPhone 4S continues to be Apple’s best selling device. The iPhone phone plans continue to be the most popular available. You can achieve lower costs for the device if you have promo codes however. Vodafone promo codes seems to be the most popular.
