good write up - what do you think?


Honestly?

No offence (maybe it's a translation?) - I find it very poor.

Will the Htc One X dethrone the trail blazing iphone branded phone? That is the smartphone question on everyone’s mind. Htc one x vs iphone 5. ..Since the iphone inception a few years ago, the phone quickly staked it’s claim over and over with each release as the market making phone.

The iphone currently leads the market, and with good reason – brand. The iphone brand was built on the back of one of the most successfully branded companies in history. Branding is why people buy. While this article is not about marketing, here I will unfold to you how htc has already poised itself and created - htc one x vs iphone – as a new english phrase.

There are so many flaws, jumps, inconsistencies in those first 2 paragraphs that I struggle to find a starting point!
- There is no iPhone 5, yet. But the author freely mixes up the non-existent iPhone 5 and earlier models... What is an "iPhone branded phone"?


Honestly, htconeclub... it only gets worse! Whoever (whatever) translated the article did a poor job. Whoever typed it, did an even poorer one. When you come here to promote your site and your own articles, then the piece shouldn't contain typos.
But hey, typos I can live with - it's the incoherence and lack of cohesion that made it really hard to read through the whole thing. It's full of allusions to details that never follow - possibly in the assumption that "the reader" knows what is meant. I know a fair bit about phones, and I do not favour iOS over Android and vice versa... but to be honest, in it's current form, that article smells of thinly veiled, poorly informed fanyboy-ism.

To the content (what little there is): the HTC One X may "rule" now, but the iPhone "5" and the Samsung Galaxy "S3" aren't even out, yet. By the time the iPhone 5 is actually on the market, HTC themselves may well have a phone out that beats the OneX... utterly pointless, therefore.
Also: The claim that the HTC One X is allround of better hardware, is a paper argument.
It is fairly useless to compare devices of different hardware that run different OSs.
Yes, not totally pointless, but not deal-breaking.

I hate Windows Phone 7, but: a single-core 512MB RAM WP device will perform "better" in many regards than an Android phone with the same super-ficial specs...
Different requirements, different strengths...

Anyway...
Sorry to say it, but you linked to it, you asked for an opinion...

Better is totally subjective. In my, subjective, opinion the One X is the better phone.

Saying that, there have been more iPhone 4S' sold so if everyone gave their opinion then the 4S would come out on top, probably.

That assumes that all the 4s owners feel it is better than a phone that for some wasn't even an option when they bought theirs.

They already bought a, hideously expensive, 4S over an S2, remember :p.
