Is it worth buying sgs3 / onex now espeacially since cortex a15's are arround the corner ? Dual core snapdragon s4 comes close to both quad core exynos and tega3 & hell even beats them in some benchmarks so naturally quad core a15's will blow away all current flagships . I want a phone which is well future proof - many may say including manufacturers that their current flagships are quite future proof but thats just another gimmick . They offcourse will port one more iteration (jellybean) that too stripped of some features that they've saved for their next flagship - but other than that i dont expect them to be any more generous - afterall if they are going to update older devices whose gonna buy new ones Wink .... So i guess the longer i wait more are the chaces of me ending up buying a more future proof device !
Sorry for the essay to sum it up - Is it worth buying sgs3/onex now or wait a bit more

Edit : dont know if this is the right section to post this or whether such things have already been discussed here if so feel free to delete the topic !

No phone is future proof, all the big boys release a new flagship device once a year, so buy now or wait 12 months?. It's a merry go round.

With such mammoth hardware specs you would expect it to be future proof but they'll find out one reason or the another to break our expectations Roll Eyes i mean what kind of a mobile os would be so resource hungry enough not to run on a quad core application processor and a gig of ram (coupled with a massive gpu) ! It all mostly depends on manufacturers at the end like my old 3GS will soon get ios6 too all i really miss is siri but even ip4 does'nt have it and its understandable as they have to differentiate their new product .

If you like having powerful processors for your gaming needs, go ahead. I'll just wait for some new nexus or something, until then,l I'll stick with ma good old sgs2, which pretty much has all my smartphone needs.

Looking at the way development of devices are going, we could be looking at 8-CORE processing power very soon...

If you want to buy any of these two great smartphones why not buy it now.
Waiting is always a dangerous game to play in the mobile world. You can never stop waiting for a better phone!
But if you have any taste for bigger device, I might as well advise you to wait for Galaxy Note II but If not buy any of these two phones.
They will both for sure get the next version of Android.

HTC One X over SGS III
-Looks, It is subjective though because I personally prefer the look and design of Galaxy SIII.
-Better Camera performance in Low light condition without Flashlight enabled
-Brighter IPS LCD2 screen with a full set of subpixels
-More beautiful Recents & Running App view
-A little cheaper ATM
-Sense UI 4.0

**Both are made of Polycarbonate/plastic***
**Both support Micro-SIM only
SGS III over HTC One X
-Higher display contrast and better sunlight legibility
-S Beam for easy and fast file transfers
-Smoother experience
-Much better browsing Experience (Uber-smooth)
-Homescreen Navigation doesn't stutter when you use any kind of live wallpaper, including the heaviest ones (From personal experience)
-Better Camera Features and performance (Still and Video)
-Better Camera performance in low light with flashlight enabled
-Better Battery Backup
-Removable battery
-MicroSD card Support
-Upto 64G of internal Storage
-Fantastic Multimedia Features
-Excellent Video player, Supports almost any video file type
-Better Audio Quality both Loudspeaker and Headset (according GSMArena)
-Better connectivity support (Can connect to many things simulteneously)
-Better Call audio quality
-Smart Stay
-Smart call
-A little costlier ATM
-Limitless multitasking out of box (HTC One X is limited to 4 apps out of box)
-More functional Recent&Running apps view (it has remove all, View available RAM, advance task manager options)
-S-Voice?
-48 Gig free cloud storage
-Touchwiz Nature UX
-Better Processor & GPU?

But it still depends on your personal taste>

***Note***
there are much reports of hardware dissatisfaction for HTC One X compared HTC One S, P and Galaxy SIII on XDA ranging from the case peeling, dust under the screen, wifi death grip, toTerrible multitasking experince etc

You can have Siri on your 3GS, she will run just fine, I have her on an iPhone 4 and I have no complaints at all.

Check out the recent posts about single core vs multi core, you might agree that these newest high end devices are not as good using their OS as they are cracked up to be.

Quantity doesn't always = quality.

You can try iOS6 beta now on your 3GS without a developers account, see this post http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.php?topic=74431.0

Thanks at jokesy +1 for your help Cheesy i am still confused - if i go for onex/sgs3 what if the a15's outrun what we think today as beasts when they come out in Q4 this year ! - we'll feel pathetic for having spent such an enormous amount of money and at the year end our devices get cheaply outrun by others without even lasting a full long year !
Anyway i've decided to go for onex if at all am buying a phone now . Sgs3 is better than onex in every aspect except the screen and looks but am sort of a game lover and samsung have made it clear that they will not spend money to rope in developers to create exynos friendly or exclusive games while it looks like every  upcoming game is customised nvidia tegra 3 and they look pathetic on other android devices ! eventhough with more powerfull hardware than tegra3 counterparts sgs3 could have run all of them fine .
You can have Siri on your 3GS, she will run just fine, I have her on an iPhone 4 and I have no complaints at all.

Check out the recent posts about single core vs multi core, you might agree that these newest high end devices are not as good using their OS as they are cracked up to be.

thank you +1 i knew about siri i'll try ios6 beta anyhow Wink

Both HTC One X and SGS3 are amazing phones,they both have advantages and minus,if you read other reviews you will see they are on par because very contradictory results from a website to another,then after it's a matter of personal choice.
You wont regret any of 2 for sure!
The thing is that if you got a good phone already for only a couple of months like sgs2 or sensation then wait till september,prices will fall then.
If you have a good phone for more than 10 months then buy either sgs3 or HOX!
Read my review of the HOX in the blog if you want HERE
