The Huawei Ascend P1 LTE was next of the four, topping out at 27Mbps and averaging around 15Mbps. The HTC One XL disappointed, peaking at 15Mbps but averaging closer to 10Mbps. But before the folks at Samsung get too excited, we have to offer a word of warning about 4G tests. These results reflect 4G speeds at that one time, at that one spot, and shouldn't be taken as a definitive demonstration of the speeds you can expect once 4G is open to the public and every Tom, Dick and Harry is watching iPlayer while they're walking down the street.
I should also note that we carried out these tests in central London, We're conscious that the performance of any phone in London is likely to be very different to what the rest of the country can expect, but for the moment our tests have been confined to locations near to EE's office, When we can test outside the capital, we will, For more on 4G speeds, and why they iphone x screen protector can't be accurately measured yet, hit play to check out our speed test including the iPhone, S3, One XL and P1 LTE -- and read the results here..
So the jury's still out on 4G performance. But how do the phones measure up against each other in other areas?. The iPhone 5's smaller screen is matched by light weight: it's just 112g, nearly 22g lighter than the S3. The iPhone is also a beautifully built piece of engineering, with a gorgeous aluminium casing banded in steel. Unfortunately the black version is prone to scratches round the edge, although the white model is less susceptible. The S3's clip-on plastic back and blobby camera don't have anything like such a premium feel, and nor does the One XL's featureless rear. But the larger screens give you more room to play with, while the P1 LTE has a subtle chin that helps it sit comfortably in your hand.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 iphone x screen protector is the biggest of the four, with a whopping 4.8-inch screen, Or if you prefer something a bit more petite, the iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display, Both screens are absolutely gorgeous -- perfect for watching movies, playing games and browsing the Web, all in crisp, clear detail, Which you prefer is up to you: I personally find the iPhone a bit small, and love the S3's slab-like screen; but others think the S3 is too pocket-stretchingly big, For some reason the One XL has a much lower resolution 4.7-inch screen than the One X on which it's based: the display is 540x960 pixels, instead of the One X's glorious high-definition 720x1,280-pixel display, The P1 LTE is has the same resolution, but crammed into a more dainty 4.3 inches..
The One XL and P1 LTE both boast 1.5GHz dual-core processors, which means they're no slouches. But once again the One XL is a step down from the mighty quad-core chip in the original One X, which was crushed by the original S3 in benchmark tests. But the S3 is in turn beaten by the iPhone 5. The A6 processor in the iPhone 5 dynamically overclocks, which is a fancy way of saying the chip uses less power when you don't need it, and ramps up when you do. We'd need to do proper benchmark tests to see how the S3 LTE specifically shapes up against the iPhone, but early signs point to Apple's chip winning out.
