LG Optimus 4X HD vs Samsung Galaxy S III-- Samsung Galaxy SIII vs LG Optimus 4X HD-- Which is the Best ?
We see how LG's forthcoming quad core flagship, the Optimus 4X HD, compares to Samsung's recently launched equivalent, the Galaxy S3. Form Samsung Galaxy S3 - 136.6x70.6x8.6mm, 133g LG Optimus 4X HD - 8.9mm thick, other measurements TBA The LG Optimus 4X HD is sticking with the company's latest design ethos, which has pretty much followed the highly angular trend through to its logical conclusion. This is about as stark a slab as you can expect to find anywhere. It's a look that is starting to disappear with other manufacturers now shifting the other way and making more rounded designs, but we still think it looks good and LG, with its penchant for slick design and solid build quality, executes it better than most. The handset proportions are nice and it features capacitive controls, rounded edges and a textured back panel. The design has been kept quite minimalist on the whole so there's very little in the way of visual clutter. Samsung's Galaxy S3 is a different story altogether. As we mentioned, trends seems to be shifting back towards curvy phones and Samsung said pebbles were its inspiration for the Galaxy S3. That's all well and good, and overall it's not a bad looking phone, but the build quality is absolutely awful with terrible quality plastic. This is an easy win for LG because we're so disappointed with Samsung's Galaxy S3 in terms of the materials used, it does not feel like a premium device in the hand. Winner - LG Optimus 4X HD Display While aesthetic trends shift back and forth between angular and curvaceous, the trend for increasingly larger displays continues with both handsets here. LG's Optimus 4X HD has a 4.7-inch HD-IPS LCD capacitive multi-touch screen with a 1280x720 pixel resolution. The pixel density clocks in at an impressive 312 pixels-per-inch (ppi) and should deliver a sharp picture and decent brightness. The Galaxy S3 has a slightly larger 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD capacitive display at the same resolution as its opponent, giving a slightly lower pixel density of 306ppi. It also features Corning Gorilla Glass for some added durability. Again this produces crisp visual quality and has excellent contrast, deep blacks and good colour reproduction. Between these two there should be very little difference in picture clarity. Winner - Draw Storage The Optimus 4X HD has a single internal storage model with 16GB onboard, 1GB of RAM and a micro SD support for cards up to 32GB. There's plenty of choice with Samsung's Galaxy S3 thanks to 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, each with 1GB of RAM and the same micro SD storage capability as its rival. Samsung wins this round by offering more variety. Winner - Samsung Galaxy S3 Processor The Galaxy S3 is Samsung's first quad core smartphone and runs four ARM Cortex-A9 cores on the company's own Exynos 4212 chipset clocked to 1.4GHz and paired with a Mali-400MP graphics processing unit (GPU). Our hands-on with the handset showed this to a be a lightning quick combo, we experienced no slow-down and are fairly sure it'll handle whatever you care to throw at it. LG's Optimus 4X HD also runs a quad core Cortex-A9 setup clocked at 1.5GHz on Nvidia's Tegra 3 chipset with a Geforce ULP GPU. We've seen this configuration in action on a number of devices now, including the Optimus 4X HD itself during its unveiling at Mobile World Congress. While benchmark tests might show other chips to be faster on paper, it's difficult to argue with the Tegra 3's competence when you have a device running on it in your hand. It is blisteringly quick and will be more than capable of handling the latest games, multimedia and apps. We can argue the detailed performance statistics indefinitely but there's very little point, most users will be more than happy with the capabilities and smooth experience of both these handsets. In practical terms they're on a par. Winner - Draw Operating System Both handsets run the most up-to-date build of Google's Android operating system, version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which has a lot of benefits over its predecessors. Most notably is the overall improvement in speed, smoothness and performance which is noticeable over Gingerbread regardless of the power of the device running it. Stability is also much better this time around. Another favourite tweak is the addition of a quick app-switcher control which makes multi-tasking, a consistent Android strong-point, even easier to use. It's been improved from 3.2 Honeycomb with the added swipe to close functionality. Being on the same platform, there's not much to compare the two here. Admittedly, the Galaxy S3 does have a few added features but none of them are ‘must haves' and they don't put it ahead of the regular Ice Cream Sandwich experience. Winner - Draw Camera Each device has a similar sounding camera setup at first glance as they both feature an 8-megpixel back-illuminated sensor (BSI) with a 3264x2448 pixel resolution. Other shared features include an LED flash, geo-tagging, autofocus, touch focus, face and smile detection and image stabilisation. The Galaxy S3 distinguishes itself with video stabilisation, exposure control, white balance, ISO control, panoramic mode and HDR. On top of this, there's the ability to capture 3.3 pictures per second using a rapid multi-shot mode which also has a ‘best shot' picker ability. The Galaxy S3 also boasts simultaneous still image and 1080p HD video capture. Both handsets have secondary cameras capable of conducting video calls. The LG Optimus 4X HD has a 1.3-megapixel front-facing secondary while the Samsung Galaxy S3's 2-megapixel secondary can capture video in 720p. Samsung has the edge here with a more comprehensive offering. LG's setup is still competitive and should produce high quality pictures and video, but for sheer versatility the Galaxy S3 is superior. wholesale accessories,ipad accessories,iphone accessories,ipod accessories
