Apple iPhone 4S And HTC One X – Comparing Key AttributesSep 3rd, 2012 | By phoneslimited | Category: Telecommunications
In this article, I am going to compare some of the key features of the HTC One X and the Apple iPhone 4S. These are two of the most impressive and popular smartphones on the market, and after reading this article you will be able to decide which one comes out on top.
One of the most important features for many people when choosing their next smartphone is the quality of its touchscreen. Luckily, this is a feature where both of these phones impress. The HTC One X has a 4.7 inch screen which utilises Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen technology, and with a resolution of 720x 1280 it is able to display high definition content, making this a great phone for multimedia use like playing games or watching videos. The screen of the iPhone 4S differs to this significantly. It is much smaller at 3.5 inches, although this contributes to its display quality. This is because a resolution of 640x 960 creates an industry leading pixel density of 330 pixels per inch when packed into the small confines of the screen. As a result, the naked eye is unable to distinguish between individual pixels on the screen, which is why this is also known as the retina display.
The Apple iPhone 4S has a 1 GHz dual-core processor, which at the time of the handset’s release made it one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. Although many smartphones now have more powerful processors, the iPhone 4S still boasts outstanding performance, even by today’s standards. The HTC One X is one of the first smartphones to boast a quad-core processor. At 1.5 GHz, this makes it one of the most powerful smartphones currently on the market. There are several benefits to this additional processing power. These include a more responsive touchscreen, faster download speeds, faster web browsing speeds and much more efficient multitasking, plus much more.
One of the fundamental differences between the HTC One X and the iPhone 4S is the operating system. The iPhone 4S of course has iOS as its platform of choice, which is well known and used by millions of people as this is included on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. It is well known for being extremely easy to use, and its simple interface combined with its powerful features means it ticks all the boxes; it is easy enough for a child to use, but boasts some of the most innovative features on the market. The HTC One X on the other hand utilises the latest version of the Android operating system, which is known as Ice Cream Sandwich. This works in conjunction with the HTC Sense user interface which provides an alternative aesthetic appearance along with additional customisation features to the stock Android interface.
The iPhone 4S and the HTC One X are clearly very well equipped smartphones. While they both impress for a number of reasons, they are also very different from one another as you can see. Choosing between them comes purely down to personal preference, but either way it is easy to see why both handsets are so popular.
