Australian carriers recently added HTC One S and HTC One V in the line of smartphones that they are offering.
The HTC One S was recently released in Australia. Smartphones made by the Taiwanese manufacturer are slowly making its name in the field by bringing high quality devices packed with incredible specs and features.
The HTC One S is one of the smartphones in HTC One series, which quickly gained popularity among Aussies by supporting 4G/LTE connection that promised incredible speed in browsing and downloads.
It will pick up competition with Samsung's contender, Galaxy S3, which was launched last May 31. These are the top contenders for the title of being the best smartphone in the Australian market along with the upcoming Apple's iPhone 5.
Below is the comparison of some of the notable specifications of the devices:
The HTC One S is equipped with 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen. The Samsung Galaxy S3, on the other hand, has a large 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen display.
HTC One XL scores a point by offering a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The Galaxy S3 leaps ahead with its 1.4 GHz quad-core processor.
When it comes to storage space, there will be no further questions that Samsung's greatest device up to date nailed it with is 62GB expandable memory of the Galaxy S3. Samsung Galaxy S3 allows its users to add microSD card to further increase the memory of the device. The HTC One S has a total storage of 16GB.
Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One S tied in the category by using Android's latest Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Galaxy S3 and HTC One XL are at par by sporting 8 megapixel cameras.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is supported by Wolfson audio chip that reduces noise that impedes the delivery of clearer sound. HTC One S, on the other hand, has Beats audio that promises HD quality sound.
One of the downsides of owning a smartphone is its short battery life. It has one of the issues that are constantly addressed by developers. Galaxy S3 promised longer battery life with its 2100 mAh. HTC One S trailed behind with its 1650 mAh battery.
One of the advantages of HTC One S is its 4G/LTE support that promised faster connectivity. Unfortunately, Samsung Galaxy S3 does not support this feature.
In terms of features and performance that Australians are looking for, Samsung Galaxy S3 is a clear winner. However, Australian consumers who are looking for a cheaper alternative as well as those who wants faster internet connection and enjoy 4G connection, HTC One S is the smartphone for you.
