HTC One X or Apple iPhone 5

We have heard plenty of rumors about the specifications of both the HTC One X and the Apple iPhone 5. Let us see how these super phones stack up. (rumors of course)

Let us start with the HTC One X

The HTC One X is said to have the all new Tegra 3 quad core processor at 1.5 GHz, with a 1GB RAM. A 4.7 inch Capacitive touch screen with 720x1280 pixels. The 8MP rear facing camera with auto focus, LED flash, face detection, and Geo tagging that can capture 1080p video. A 1.3MP front facing camera for video chat.

As far as memory goes, the HTC One X will have 32GB of internal memory, and HTC may have got rid of the microSD slot in this one. As expected the HTC One X will come with Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich. Although rumors are going around that it will be an upgraded version 4.0.5 that will be able to support mass storage mode. It will also be operating with the new HTC Sense 4.0. 

You can also expect a 1800 mAh battery, and it would not be a stretch to say that 4G LTE will drain it nicely. But the Gorilla Glass is always great to have. 

I have not heard anything regarding the HTC One X having NFC capabilities. 

Now the Apple iPhone 5

Let me start by saying that I am not sure as to which way Apple is going to go with the quad core. It is just that Apple is currently testing two versions of the iPhone 5, and it would not be a stretch to say that Apple may release a iPhone 5 dual core and then a iPhone 5S quad core.

Let us just say that the iPhone 5 is the quad core A6 at 1.5 GHz and 1GB RAM. Besides, anything less and this comparison would end here. The display is rumored to be between 3.7 and 4.0 inches with a Quantum DOT LED. A 12MP rear facing camera (WOW), with Geo tagging, auto focus, LED flash, and 3D (If you like to get dizzy). A 2MP front facing video chat camera too.

Apple always goes with the three memory sizes of 16, 32, and 64GB in their new iPhone's. We hope to get to see the new iOS 6 or at least a iOS 5.1.

Let's see that 4G LTE!!! The iPhone is in desperate need of speed. That brings me to the battery. I hear that it will be 1420 mAh. Yes, that is bigger than the previous battery and they say that it will give 8 hours of talk time on 3G. What about 4G LTE? I imagine that it will drain that puppy dry quick, like all the other LTE phones.

Now it comes down to who is better from the rumors....

MY answer is WHO CARES!? Both of these sound like dream phones. I can't wait to try them both. Although I do lean toward the HTC because I feel that I can do more with Android.

Any other rumors that you would like to share???
