One of major reasons why smartphone enthusiasts opt for Android over other mobile OSes like iOS and Windows Phone 8 is because of Android’s relatively open nature.

The Galaxy S III may have a multi-core chip, a gig of RAM, high-end optics and an HD display, but that HD display is also freaking huge! At 4.8-inches, it is among the tallest and widest Android smartphones available in the market. As comfortable as it is to hold, with its smoothly curved body, it is mighty uncomfortable to use with one hand.

The high-end superphone of today is the mid-end, economical smartphone of tomorrow. HTC’s Desire X, which was announced back in June, 2012, comes with a dual-core chip, a 4-inch 480 x 800 display, 768MB of RAM, 5-megapixel sensor on the back and, well, no optics on the front.
