Super Smartphone Showdown Part 3: Software

For some reason we forgot to publish part three of the showdown yesterday, but don't worry because we're back today, ready to show off the software used on all five devices. We look not only at the UI design of the software, but also at some of the cool features that can be found hidden in the software of each device.

Here's a quick rundown of each device used in the showdown, and what software is used on each device:

  • HTC One X: Android 4.0 + Sense UI 4.0
  • Samsung Galaxy S III: Android 4.0 + TouchWiz Nature UX
  • Sony Xperia S: Android 4.0 (after update) + Timescape UI
  • Motorola Droid Razr: Android 2.3* + Blur
  • LG Optimus 4X HD: Android 4.0 + Optimus UI 3.0

*Motorola has not yet pushed the Android 4.0 update to GSM devices, and we simply couldn't wait any longer to have Android 4.0 on all devices for the comparison
