iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy S3 vs. Galaxy Nexus vs. One X: Apple, Samsung, HTC Smartphones Head-to-Head

Samsung's Galaxy S III has arrived, and pundits are, as always, wondering if this one is an "iPhone killer." Though the GS3 would certainly beat the iPhone in a fight (it has a huge size advantage!), we're not so sure about the sales numbers -- a huge Cult of iPhone probably guarantees the continued dominance of Apple's signature smartphone as the best-selling single device, at least in America.

But which phone should you opt for? If you're looking to buy a phone in the next month or so, and you want a high-powered smartphone with impressive specs -- which one should you go for? We're lining up four of the most robust smartphones available -- the iPhone 4S, the Galaxy S III, HTC's One X, and the Google-Samsung collabo Galaxy Nexus -- against each other in a battle of the specs to give you a clearer picture.

A couple footnotes:
- Talk time and web browsing time are both taken from tests conduced by mobile website gsmarena. You can view those results here.
- We didn't include processors, as we're still not sure what kind of processor the American version of the Galaxy S III will have. The iPhone 4S, Galaxy Nexus, and HTC One X (AT&T version) all pack dual-core processors; the international version of the Galaxy S III has a quad-core processor, though it's been rumored that the American version will be dual-core. You can see how the Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X and iPhone 4S match up against one another here. The quad-core version of Galaxy S III has been tested here.
