Ill admit, the GNex is slowly showing its age...HOWEVER

It is very extremely highly supported by the XDA community, if not the most supported phone (for being a nexus device)

If you like to tinker with ROMs, kernels and such, and/or a DIYer this is the phone for you, no questions asked!

Both are great phones the Nexus has a little older specs but has the benefit of receiving software updates much quicker than the S3, and the updates make the phone seem much faster than its specs would let you believe (look at jelly bean). In terms of raw power the S3 is much stronger and if your purchasing the phone in a contract the S3 would be much more future proof and to add to this as others have mentioned the community is very active in modding the S3 as well so I would go with the galaxy S3. Last I checked the htc one x is on sale at rogers for 29.99 on a 3 year contract if your going the contract route but there's supposedly a new htc one x plus being released in the near future if your still interested in that phone.

The One X is by far the easiest to root, there is actually a 1 click root out in the form of a comand line.exe,

I just bought the Galaxy Nexus. For $350 from Google, why not...... I don't want to be on contract for 3 years for a new phone. And I still have to pawn out $180 for the S3. I am happy with my decision. It works very well and has more than enough horsepower to do what you want it to.

I buddy of mine from Cali came down with it redface.gif

If you have family in the states, I would get it. I am going to stick with google only phones now. And the fact that I can change from any carrier (with bell now) is epic.

Good luck mate.

Either Samsung Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Nexus.

HTC One X is the worst option of the three because it uses a low quality camera (same as last year's SGS II) and has a non-removable battery meaning you can't replace it when you have long days at work or meetings after work/school).

Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X camera comparison



The HTC One X uses an old crappy sensor. It does have a f2.0 aperture which hardly makes up for crappy image quality.

Also the HTC One X can't even do video capture at 30 FPS. It can only capture at 19 FPS and the bitrate is very low meaning video quality is very bad:


This is part of an article from GSM Arena:
Quote:
We were pleased with the video capture on the HTC One X. But the Galaxy S III is just too good to compete with - the resolved detail in the Galaxy S III videos is incredible and they are very smooth with accurate colors.

Here's the Galaxy S III 1080p FullHD sample.

And the One X 1080p video sample.

There's also the bitrate to take into account. The HTC One X videos come out with a relatively low bitrate of about 10 Mbps, while the Galaxy S III's clips hover around the 17 Mbps mark. Both devices offer stereo sound recording during capture. Below we've lined up 720p video samples by each of the devices.

The lower bitrate is evident here as well. At 6Mbps the One X videos have about half the bitrate of those captured with the Galaxy S III. (Galaxy S3 is the winner)

Overall, it's hard to see beyond the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III for the winner in the video recording category. The One X shoots decent videos, but those are nowhere near the S III standard.

Okay that picture has differant weather in the One X photo and In the Galaxy S3 photo, there is know way on earth you can justify a better camera using just those photo's,
