Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to the One X
Over the last couple of generations of Android phones, there has seemingly been a battle between HTC and Samsung for Android-powered smartphone supremacy. Both sides have their fans, and both sides have their haters. Given that the specs are usually so similar, it really does come down to a matter of opinion because both manufacturers release amazing smartphones. So if you wanted to sample one’s software on the other, there’s no harm in that. Now, HTC One X users can try out the latest Samsung TouchWiz Launcher.
XDA Forum Member Ppain ported the launcher to the One X. While there are alternatives out there, this version was made specifically for the One X so users should see much fewer issues than ports that cater to everyone. So far, the launcher seems to work on everything from AOSP to stock, as long as the underlying OS is Ice Cream Sandwich. In other words, there is currently no support for Jelly Bean.
So far, users have only reported small issues, such as sizing problems and a very quirky infinite scrolling bug. Ppain has been working on fixing these issues, though, so it has fewer bugs than its initial release. For additional details, check out the original thread.

Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
