Battery life
No smartphone will hold its charge for as long as an old Nokia handset. But there is a noticeable difference between the battery life of iPhone 4S and the HTC One X. Apple's device will get most users through a full day quite comfortably; if you're a light user you might even be able to eke out a couple of days' use. The HTC One X, on the other hand, will be in the red by bedtime almost without fail. Samsung seems to have grasped the big-screen power drain issue with more aplomb, including some clever touches such as a power-saving mode for web browsing. You can also switch out the Galaxy S3's battery. That's not an option with iPhone 4S or HTC One X, both of which are sealed units.
