HTC One X Vs Samsung Galaxy SIII Vs Sony Xperia S, Comparison of The Best Cameras Android

In high-end Android smartphones compete and differentiate themselves is all a feat. Processors not already represent an important element because all use very similar technology with a performance that is hard to beat. So are other elements who are trying to make a difference: the screen, resolution, size and one very special camera.

This year the high-end manufacturers the batteries have been in this last aspect. Sony has improved its already on good technology, HTC has grown at a rapid pace to try to take the lead and Samsung has also renovated its camera. Three phones: Xperia S, HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3. We bring you a comparison of all camera.

We start with the theory, what each one offers

Before entering into matter, We do a small review What offers the camera of each analyzed terminals. They are a good starting point and even then what matters is the quality of the photo it is not bad to review the technical specifications of each. Here they are in this table:

Feature \ phone HTC One X Samsung Galaxy SIII Sony Xperia S
Resolution 8 megapixel camera 8 megapixel camera 12 megapixel
Maximum size image 3,264 & #215; 2.448 3,264 & #215; 2448 4,000 & #215; 2,250
Front camera
LED flash

On paper, who takes the cat to water is undoubtedly the of the Xperia S by its resolution. However, this is only the beginning, and now that we have made this introduction we will to the practical. To take the camera to see who, aside from these data, it gives us the best photos. Let’s start.

Physical section

We give back to the mobile and begin to compare. HTC One X camera protrudes a bit the unibody design. It is not to be a nuisance but it is the first element that rubs against the surface surplus which leave the phone. Could have been a little more careful this aspect.

Samsung Galaxy SIII protrudes very slightly and integrates better in the design of the housing. In this aspect has improved enough with respect to the SII where the camera was a little more. Unobtrusive and well-kept.

Sony integrates the camera about the case pretty well, does not protrude at all and seems to be one more element and not a glob on the design of the phone. In this respect wins the round by a very simple appearance, but that other manufacturers have overlooked: a dedicated button to make photographs. Thanks.

Menu and interface when making photographs

Click on the button of the camera and we look at the interface. HTC One X leaves us perfectly display the image we are going to register. The elements don’t distract and are well integrated, Although some of them may sometimes be a little more at the sight. Intuitive and correct.

Samsung Galaxy S3 also brings an interface very clean. On their behalf it has customization of the menu so that we can have more options that we are going to use. In my humble opinion, in this respect, the point is for Koreans. Everything by hand and without too many hops between options.

Xperia S does not show the menus with great simplicity. The most commonly used options are simple view and the more complex something else hidden. Discrete and somewhat more easily than the other two competitors. The fight for second place here is difficult since HTC One X also does really well.

… Point and shoot

We have already framed, now time to aim and shoot. HTC One X behaves well even though there are times where we can notice a small vibration by pressing the screen. Maybe this is a very subjective perception, but the pictures taken for the comparative has been that more problems has given me. Speed shot and approach, that Yes, pretty fast.

For not having a physical button to shoot the Galaxy SIII it behaves perfectly. Easy to focus and shoot. Contrary to One x in this case I have not noticed problems with vibration or light movements that down the image. Also very fast shooting and focusing.

Things as they are. Point with a touch screen is not a choice and here the Xperia S with the dedicated camera button makes the difference. Fast, simple and no need to worry. It is fast, although not the fastest of the three. It is still by having an own button more than enough to win in this section.

Effects

The effects in the photographs always are a relationship love hate. Some people use them and others passed directly from them. HTC One X includes a good selection of these with the advantage that we can see the results in time real and not once take the image. Some thank you like us more or less is another matter. Point for the Taiwanese.

Samsung Galaxy SIII also has a selection, more concise but sufficient to meet record. That Yes, we cannot preview until you have taken the picture. The basic features, and some other creative effect.

Sony also wants to stay behind though which is more simple effects palette. There will be many who don’t throw it less but beyond the basic features, that has them and fulfils perfectly, has no effect in particular that stands out, nor is it a loss in my opinion.

HDR

I wanted to separate this section of the effects because it seemed to me interesting to see the comparison on the other hand. HTC One X allows us to images of this type and quality offering is pretty good and is capable of helping us to take very good pictures. At the beginning and at the end of the comparison you have examples.

Samsung Galaxy SIII also behaves perfectly here. Processing time is quick and the quality that offers really good. Yet in these two smartphones are misses that the effect is a little more intense. The Sony Xperia S is out of this section by not having built-in HDR. Technical tie between HTC and Samsung.

Now… the pictures

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and these will now be to speak to defend the quality of each camera. Then you can see different comparative images three smartphones. All of them have been simply reduced size and exported with the same configuration and without any processing. In addition, there have been no further configuration to aim and shoot, the findings explains why.

And the video, of course

As in photographs, uploaded video unprocessed and without any prior coding.

Conclusions

When it comes to taking photographs with the mobile there is an element which, in my opinion, it is determined whether a camera is good or not: make it fast. I.e., that we take the Mobile Pocket, write down and make a photo. It is true that the Xperia S, has more resolution and sharpness that gives is very good but in certain circumstances forces you to make a small adjustment in the white balance or ISO. This for when I do photos with the reflex is great, when I do them with the mobile no.

In summary, the three mobile they have excellent cameras. Leading-edge technology that nothing has to envy what offers the competition of other systems operating, with permission of PureView; a damn smartphone by an operating system to the brink of death. We’ll see with Windows Phone. Returning to the topic, the three offer outstanding performance.

If we like to make photos calmly and make a couple of quick adjustments the best choice is the Xperia S. Antonio Ortiz already showed us with ten photos that is capable, much potential but must stand up a bit. If I instead want to take quick photos the best options with the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy SIII. A hard-fought dispute which for me WINS Korean little by little details such as menus.
