Is AT&T's One X really better than the global model? Yes. If you can live with the carrier's software tweaks, this is the best subsidized Android phone in the US today.

Quad-core processing isn't everything, and AT&T's new $199.99 HTC One X proves it. This advanced Android has style, speed, blazing 4G, and power galore.

With Ice Cream Sandwich, a stunning screen, and fast AT&T LTE, the HTC One X takes its place as the king of all Android smartphones—for now, at least.

The HTC One X is a fantastic phone, providing you can overlook its flaws. For some, the below-average call quality will most likely be a deal-breaker. For others, the One X's weak audio recording capabilities and inclusion of bloatware will be what drives them to another handset...

The $199 One X for AT&T makes quite a strong statement for HTC, which couldn't come at a better time given the upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The screen is stunning, and the camera combines best-in-class speed with better image quality than the Galaxy Nexus.

Should I Buy It? Totally. The one caveat is that you must like big phones. They're not for everybody, and that's a totally respectable position. If you do like big phones, though, this is easily the best Android phone on AT&T, and very possibly the best Android phone period

The HTC One X is an excellent and fitting flagship handset. It's a great smartphone to live with: a cleaner, fresher HTC experience, packed into a device with the power to impress and a design that will turn heads.

HTC's latest wonder phone comes packing all the bells and whistles, but is let down by the non-removable battery that will last you about a full day's use. That said, the One X could possibly be one of the best handsets you'll see in 2012.

The HTC One X features a superb design, a fantastic display and offers excellent performance along with some very well designed software. Poor battery life and some annoying inconsistencies in software are downsides to an otherwise excellent Android phone.

We fell hard for the European HTC One X, and with the addition of LTE the AT&T version is even stronger. The slick physical design, excellent display...and solid audio quality, when paired with 4G data speeds, add up to a fantastic smartphone and a fitting flagship for HTC’s 2012 range.

It’ll take more than good looks and a fast chip to make the One X an automatic success, but it’s is a capable phone and, perhaps more importantly, a sign that HTC has finally turned a corner in its strategy and products.

HTC's flagship One X is a large yet stylish handset with a stunning 4.7in. screen. Its cutting-edge specification, headed by a quad-core CPU, will appeal to power users, but the lack of storage expansion and poor battery life are disappointing.

The One X is a phone for a specialist group of gadget fiends with big wallets and high power requirements. Unfortunately for them, the price of all that power-draining tech appears to be less than stellar battery life.

The HTC One X is a handsome, speedy handset with power and versatility. You can see that a lot of thought has been applied to key features – the OS, the camera, the Beats Audio – but also to details such as the carefully milled holes that form the earpiece and rear speakers.

Whether you buy the HTC One X will come down to two things: do you want a phone that rewards you the more you explore its features? And can you live with an iffy battery life? If the answer is yes to both ... run down to your local retailer and pick up an HTC One X. You won't be disappointed.

The bottom line is that the HTC One X is a speedy, beautiful phone with a great display and a camera that should satisfy most average shutterbugs... Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4 work pretty well together to boot.

AT&T's got itself a winner here in the HTC One X. The dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is as good (or better) as NVIDIA's Tegra 3 platform. But it's the excellent battery life that makes this one a no-brainer.

Overall, the One X is an excellent effort from HTC. It's easily the best hardware to come from HTC in the last year. The One X clearly jumped to the top of the smartphone hill at AT&T's stores. It's "the one" to get if you're an Android fan.

The HTC One X is an amazing smartphone that provides a ton of power in an elegant and beautiful package. I've been really happy with the form factor, the overall experience and the quality of the camera. On the downside, those who don't like Sense won't be won over by this.

If you can get past the fact that you will probably need two hands for this phone, the One X is a pretty great phone. The phone absolutely ties the Galaxy Note for the title of best Android phone on AT&T right now, but doesn’t jump out as being the best hands down.

You can probably tell that I really like the One X, and here some additional thoughts. Should note that I reviewed the quad-core HSPA+ version, not the LTE version that will be released by AT&T here in the US: DESIGN I think my first impression of the One X is that I'm really glad HTC has...

This is the closest to a perfect phone that you could get. Once you lay eyes on the display, you WILL NOT like anything else. The floating pixels on the top is unmatchable. Nothing beats it Sense is nice. The downside: 1. Sense eat up too much of memory, and the only place you see a "Loading"...

Hardware wise, this is a stunning phone. I love the display - which allows me to see whole web pages pretty legibly and keep the pinching and zooming to a minimum. Colours are decent as are viewing angles, and legibility in all light conditions is good. It's about as good as I've ever seen on a...

This is my first Android phone and it has made me want to run back to the iPhone. This phone is unreliable, it locks up, it is always out of power when I need it. I don't know if it is Android or the HTC One X, but I long for the reliability of my iPhone.
