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 periodPC Mag90HTC One X (AT&T)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.CNET90HTC One X ReviewQuad-core processing isn't everything, and AT&T's new $199.99 HTC One X proves it.

It really is the best Android smartphone on the market today.PC World80HTC One XThe 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...Engadget90HTC One X for AT&T reviewIs AT&T's One X really better than the global model?

If you can live with the carrier's software tweaks, this is the best subsidized Android phone in the US today.Engadget80HTC One X reviewBuying an HTC One X is a lot like getting a unicorn: it's wild, fast, white, beautiful, expensive and fickle. Still, it gives even the mighty Galaxy Nexus a run for its money.SlashGear90HTC One X Review (AT&T)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.ZDNet UK80HTC One XHTC'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.PC World Australia90HTC One X Android phoneThe 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.CNET UK80HTC One X reviewThe 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.CNET Asia90HTC One XHTC'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.Pocket-Lint90HTC One X review: X marks te spotThe HTC One X is an excellent and fitting flagship handset.

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.Android Central90AT&T HTC One X reviewAT&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.GottaBeMobile90HTC One X Review | $199 AT&T 4G LTEThe 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...

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.phoneArena80HTC One X reviewThe One X comes to prove that HTC is working actively to innovate its line-up, and while it's moving in the right direction, this is not the ultimate phone we've been looking for.TechRadar90HTC One X reviewWhether 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.Android Central80HTC One X reviewThe HTC One X has set the bar high for this new generation of Android phones. That bar's always going to inch higher as the year goes on.

In fact, we think it’s the best phone in AT&T’s currently lineup and that’s why the HTC One X handily deserves our first-ever editor’s choice award for a smartphone.Geek.com80Review: HTC One X LTE (AT&T)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.HotHardware90HTC One X AT&T Smartphone ReviewWe were very pleased with the HTC One X.

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.PocketNow80AT&T HTC One X ReviewWith the One X, HTC has taken a different route, crafting a truly elegant piece of hardware out of unique, high-quality materials and loading it with software that, while not perfect, is certainly among the best out there.MobileBurn90HTC One X (AT&T) review - an LTE-capable blastThe HTC One X for AT&T is a real winner.

From the moment I started using it, I loved this phone, and despite the fact it runs Sense, to start with, I really enjoyed it. It's got plenty of storage for me, although having said that I'm a big cloud fan, and the majority of my media is up in Google's servers somewhere. The fact that my contract is up for early renewal this month, and I'm considering keeping it a bit longer to keep costs down is a major plus. I've upgraded every phone I've had over the past 6 years as soon as my contract would allow. I find the camera is really good, although in recent usage outside, it did make a few of us a lot more red than we were, to the point we looked sunburnt.Engadget Reader80April 3, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80January 21, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90January 19, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80November 16, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A comfortable, attractive, and powerful device with an ideal sized screen of excellent quality (for it's time). I mainly used it for social media, photography, and general phone use (texts, phone calls). While it worked perfectly fine for all of these uses, I did come across some hardware and software uses within the year that I used this device:Around one month in, I could no longer take photos of anything around 2 inches or from the rear cam, whereas it was perfectly fine before. It would try and try to focus, making mechanical clicky sounds, but to no avail. Presumably a hardware issue. Shortly thereafter I lost the full volume of the rear (main) speaker for seemingly no reason at all. From there on out it was just really quiet. This was the speaker designed by Beats Audio (slow clap). Later on, I noticed that I could almost never use flash in Instagram without crashing the cam app. It would start the flash, the flash would stay on, the picture would never take, and the app would crash. If I tried to access my cam app or the part of any app using the cam, nothing would work. It would take about a day (restarts included) for it to start working again. Most likely a software issue, and one that was not entirely across the board of Android devices. Finally, around 8 months in, I sat on my phone in my car, and that caused the lcd to slowly fail over time like some kind of inky smartphone disease. That's not all that surprising, but I still await the day when I this is no longer an issue in smartphones.All the issues aside, no phone is perfect. This phone was as close to perfect as it got when it first came out.Engadget Reader80November 6, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90August 2, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This smartphone was placed to set a new standard for the mobile phone hardware for the other upcoming brands and models viz quad core processor with 1.5 GHz clockspeed, camera that is able to take picture at aperture setting 2.0 (will result in excellent low light photography), awesome screen size of 4.7' with LCD2 which in no way less than Super AMOLED or Retina Display. Overall thumbs up and a great buy but should have been priced few thousands less to beat the market thoroughly. Though it has been outdated and One X+ has been released as it's successor.Positives:4.7' Screen that is perfect for a smartpone, 5.3' of Note is a bit too big and 3.5' of iPhone is bit too small. Its a big plus here.Display is awesome. Viewing angles are sharp and vivid.Quad-core in mobile makes my imaginations fly. Days are changing and I am ready to adapt.I own a DSLR cam, but do I carry it always - NO. It can well be a alternative on a few occasions.The HTC Sense 4.0 is on top of ICS 4.0 is just like icing on the cake.Browsing is fun and fast, you do not need to take out the lappy or your tablet for casual browsing and replying a few mails.Negatives:HTC phones have inherent problem with battery life though of late they have addressed this issue. I am yet to see how a 1800mAH battery performs with this giant beast.No memory card slot, btw do you need one when you have 32GB on board, if yes you might not be using the phone correctly.Battery is fixed and cannot be detached. It's a big drawback.Neutral:Polycarbonate Body Casing: I am a fan of the design aspect of HTC and always say this is where Samsung lacks most, but now HTC for the first time is using a polycarbonate casing instead of their default aluminium casing. So, we need to see how it feels in your hand, does it give a plastic feeling like the S2, or a premium feeling like other HTC or Apple phones.Engadget Reader90July 21, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

That beautiful 720p SLCD screen and svelte figure paired with the color choices got me bad. This is one iconic phone, and while not as powerful and efficient as its nearest competitor, the Galaxy S3, but it's hundred folds more beautiful and does the job with relatively comparable grace.Engadget Reader90August 14, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Since I feel it is important to tell you where my subjective opinion is coming from my smartphone lineage is as follows:Palm Pre CDMA Bell Mobility Version>HTC Hero GSM Telus Verison Unlocked>HTC Desire Z Bell Variant>HTC One X International GSMParallel to some of these I have been given at different times an iPhone 3GS for work and a BlackBerry Bold 9600.What is it about this phone that makes me feel like I don't really need to upgrade immediately or even next year as the case has been for some time.One thing I like about this phone is that everything I've liked about HTC has stayed the same and the things about HTC that I hated, are gone or better obscured.So what do I like about HTC? The phones have always felt like the future when I hold them in my hand. They always feel solid, usable, stable and like someone put some actual thought in to why it should be how it is. Sense has always been something I've liked. That stupid flip clock. I love that. The stupid weather animations from the earlier versions of Sense really showed me what Android could be like and that the iPhone wasn't the only Jesus-phone with "Hey look I'm shiny" effects.How does that bring us to the One X then? Well when I owned my Desire Z I used it stock for about 3 weeks and then immediately reverted to Cyanogenmod ROMS and/or MIUI ROMs. Which were great! It helped me overclock my phone but why the hell did I trouble and toil with a phone for 18 months when my iPhone-owning friends were just using theirs?Fast forward to May 2012. A box arrives. I open it. I mangle the shit out of my SIM card to make it fit in the Micro-SIM slot. I boot the phone. The world changes.First thing you'll notice is the screen is GORGEOUS. I mean glorious. This is the best looking screen I've ever seen and this is in direct contrast to a co-worker's Galaxy S3 and another co-worker's Galaxy Nexus. The colours really pop and watching video is positively delightful. Then after getting it set up and starting to pull down some apps, I really got a feel for what is still HTC and what is more pure on the Android side.Then I began gaming and I found this thing gets HOT right under the camera bump. When I was simultaneously charging it and playing GP Story from Kairosoft, this thing began to just heat right up. Nvidia? Can we have that be lessened in the next Tegra SoC? Kthx.Battery life with this phone is great. I use it to listen to podcasts on the way to work and then the same on the way back and it lasts all day. Sometimes, on weekends when I ignore my phone intentionally, it'll be close to dying come Monday, but never totally dead.So what sucks about Sense? Well, I've used AOSP builds of Android 4.0.x and I really loved the dark, blue-accented Holo design. HTC, however, has spent 5 years branding their phones with Green and White when those were Android's primary colours and will be damned if they ever give that up. The battery icon? Green. The HTC built icons in the Settings menu? Green. Anything that uses the stock Android API calls however gets blue on dark grey Holo colours. Inconsistent and immersion killing in every sense. This is poor design and HTC should Evolve with the times and upgrade its colour scheme.The little niggling nit-picks aside, however, this phone is great. This phone is greatness. The polycarbonate body feels really solidly constructed and has survived several drops with only minor physical damage to show for it. The screen is just unfathomably good. The device does everything I care about (web browsing, playing Kairosoft games and checking email) and more. It beats all expectations and the Beats audio doesn't even degenerate the experience like I thought it would. This is the best Android phone in 2012.Engadget Reader80August 12, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Great phone (one of the best at its release), and a true rival to the SGS3.Engadget Reader100August 11, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've had this phone for 2 months now. Everything's great! The screen is just amazing and breathtaking! See the difference when you put it side by side AMOLED screens and other LCD alike and you'll know what I'm talking about. Everything's reproduced faithfully, all colors are natural and bright and very pleasing to the eyes. The only problem I'm having was the heating-up(which, thankfully was solved on the ICS 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1 update) and average battery life that lasts a day(about 16-18 hours use) with 4hours screen-on time. The camera is great as well, one of the best i have used in a phone, shoots photos in under a second, all colors are natural and appear as you see them with your eyes, wide angle captures a lot of details. I so love the design. For me, it's the most beautiful phone around right now, at least the white one. Very light considering it's huge size and screen. Love what they did with the screen(curved on sides). Never really had a problem with non-removable battery since i've used iphones in the past, and i remove batteries from my other previous phones just for fun and read texts and numbers at the back of them(e.g. serial numbers, country of manufacturing) never had a problem about storage either as i have separate gadgets for music and torrent/movie downloads and playback. Overall more than satisfied with what HTC have delivered with this phone.Engadget Reader30August 10, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I thought this phone was a dream. It out performs just about every other phone I have ever touched...when it works that is. This phone is plagued by horrible glitches. My first One X random rebooted 3-8 times a day. I did a factory restore and only installed a few apps and the issue persisted. AT&T gave me another One X to see if that would cure my issues. I had that phone for 3 hours before my first random reboot. I hadn't installed ANY apps at this point because I wanted to make sure it wasn't something I was doing. The random reboots were extremely annoying and seemed to happen mostly while I was on the phone, but I did have 2 random reboots when I was not in a call. After a week with this continued problem, I returned it and got the Galaxy Note, which also comes with ICS now.Engadget Reader90August 9, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I am enjoying this phone, very slim, great display very nice media support, but the are two nagging issues here, the battery life and the overheating. I think most of the Quadcore monsters have the same overheating problem and I hope that they will solve it soon with new software updates. To sum it up, a great phone to have with a different flavor.Engadget Reader90August 9, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The Overall performance of the HTC One X is superb. This is a great phone for anyone wanting a music based android phone. I used this phone to stream audio, play music installed from my personal collection and watched videos. I took this phone on a bike ride and took some pictures and video. The quality was great!!! The only "issues" I had with this device came with the lock screen. Im not a fan of the "slide to the ring" unlock system. The facial recognition was pretty good ,but doesnt work well in low light. Battery life is impressive for an android.Engadget Reader90August 6, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

The display of the Samsung Galaxy III is close, but the pentile and lower resolution put me off. Plus the galaxy III just looks ugly compared to this phone. The iPhone screen is too small these days, and makes web browsing tiring. Therefore this was my only choice, but what a choice.Dan100July 28, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I'll write this review later. So far. This phone is better that SGS III.Engadget Reader80July 25, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've been an Iphone user since the first model. I have owned everyone of them. The screen size and options Android phones have made me attempt to switch three times in the last year. I purchased an Infuse last year and promptly return it. The phone was absolute garbage. My next attempt was an Galaxy S2, after 4 months I sold it. The phones were both clunky and half baked in my opinion forcing me back to an Iphone 4S. A few weeks ago I was tempted and bought the HTC One X. I continue to be surprised by this phones fit and polish. What you get is a very quick buttery UI and the best looking screen I have ever seen on a phone. The beats audio isn't as loud as and Iphone but, the sound is of better quality. The battery life could be better but, The call quality is exceptional. I do miss Siri but, this phone is better than my Iphone 4S. I just purchased two more of these for other family members and they couldn't be happier.Engadget Reader70July 23, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90July 23, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Hands down best Android out there. There are some SW glitches here and there, mostly Sense related, but surely they will be ironed out. If you'd like a practical, everyday smartphone, this is one of the top three out there. Gaming - check, camera - check, movies - check. The only small kickbacks are the lack of microSD and the SW immaturity, but I'm guessing this will get smoothened once Android 4.1 hit the phone.Engadget Reader90July 19, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

It is really easy to type on, due to the huge screen. Also, it has Beats Audio sound-enhancing software which will even work without Beats headphones. The HTC Sense 4 does not get in the way of the Ice Cream Sandwich OS. A really cool feature is that your face can be used to unlock the phone. Also, this phone is really smooth, but can lag sometimes. Overall, a really great phone. I would recommend buying it.Engadget Reader100July 11, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Had the Galaxy S3 for two days, returned to switch for One X.

The new HTC Sense UI is less annoying then previous version but it's still not very user friendly. I mean, it is pretty but it doesn't make using android better. The biggest selling point of this camera is a let down. Because while it has many features and it's really quick. The quality is simply disappointing. Picture appears grainy and has a green tint. A full charge in the morning will last you through 8 hour, but milage might vary depend on your use. I don't play games, and I don't have a big data plan. I mostly use it to take pictures and sending sms. However, this phone takes at least 4 hours to charge from 0 to full, probably longer. So in a regular day, you are very likely to ran out of battery around 4pm, if you start charging it right away and unplug it at 6pm, your phone will be 10 percent charged. Therefore, you must plug in this phone every time you see a slot.Engadget Reader90June 30, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Not without its issues, but nothing that should deter anyone from parting with their cash.A return to form from HTC.Engadget Reader90June 25, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This is one of the best phone that I have used so far, phones that I have used or own in the past included the HTC Inspire, SGS2, Samsung Captivate, Iphone4/4S, 3GS, Samsung Focus. First off this is the AT&T model so it runs on a different chipset compared to the international version (Qualcomm S4 dual core + LTE vs Nvidia Tegra 3) but the difference in performance is unnoticeable. The S4 is actually very power-efficient and even with a 1800mAH battery + LTE power drain, I've manage to get the device to go for a full day (24 hrs) without needing to recharge the battery, needless to say battery life is much better than I thought it would be. The combination of 4G LTE plus a huge 720 4.7 inch screen makes this a power hungry device and I'm glad HTC got so much life out of the 1800 mAH battery. Do I wish the battery was bigger, yes, but I am glad at the battery performance right now. Now the size of the phone can be an issue for some, having big hands, the phone fits well, it is a tad big and will take some use trying to operate it with one hand, moving from a phone with 4 inch screen to one with a 4.7 inch is a dramatic switch. The super LCD and 720 display makes this probably one of the best display on a smartphone, and while the iPhone 4S might have a better ppi, the diminutive screen size makes it a lot less enjoyable to use in my opinion. Sense 4.0 is a lot better from other version of sense, it is so much less intrusive and allows ICS to shine instead of being dragged down. The camera on the One X is also very good, the new Image Sense sensor really gives it much more speed, allowing you to capture many frames per second in burst mode beating out other major phone camera champs including the SGS2, the nokia lumia 900 and the iphone 4S. Image quality is good, you can tell the image came from a camera phone, but it is good enough for day to day use, if you want better images, you might need a dSLR or a microfourthirds ICL system. The one major gripe I had about it is the built in memory with no option to put in a microsd card, in this day and age, would it be so hard to add a tiny slot for the microsd or even include 32 gb like the international version instead of going with a tiny 16gb (only 10 of which is usable). While you do get a free 2 year 25gb dropbox which I highly recommend you take advantage of, DropBox is just an amazing and convenient service, I do really wish there was more physical storage so I do not have to worry about deleting pictures or not having enough room for offline media such as music and what not.Engadget Reader90June 23, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Additionally the software weren't completely optimized when i got the handset, this was fixed in a OTA update after a couple of days though.Engadget Reader100June 20, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetEngadget Reader80June 18, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Individually compare with others phone, the display and camera much better. And for me the battery quite okay (not an hardcore android user). However, for white color casing it easy to get dirty because of the texture. And, on the dock when we click the phone icon and click back to home and then click the app icon you can see a bit lack (stuck) on the animation. If we click on the apps icon straight, we can see the smooth animation.Engadget Reader90June 6, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A well engineered device. Great form factor- the device rests nicely in the palm of my hand while maintaining a nice discreet profile and weight, This device is all about performance. ICS, Sense UI, and Tegra 3 complement each other nicely.Engadget Reader90June 3, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90June 3, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This phone has a lot going for it. As other reviews will tell you in great detail, the design and materials of this phone is simply fantastic. For as large as it is, the way it is sculpted really makes it feel smaller than I imagine a phone of this size should feel. However, even with my average hands I found that I had to use two hands more often than I would like.Also, this screen is amazing. Definitely the best I have used on a smartphone, and I've have owned the iPhone 4 and SGSII. The clarity is superb, huge viewing angles, and stands up well in direst sunlight. Unfortunately, I have already decided to return this phone and stick with my SGSII for the time being. The biggest issue I have with this device is the software. It's simply too buggy for me. On more than one occasion I have gone to sleep with 90% battery and wake up to a completely dead phone. This is with all the same apps that I still use on my SGSII and Inspire so I have no idea where that issue is coming from. There is also way too many instances of phone lag. On a fresh reboot the phone is very fast, but sooner or later it just becomes bogged down and you need to do a complete reset just to get the performance back to par. Then there is Sense itself and the device not officially supported for rooting. If you enjoy Sense, want a bigger phone, want LTE, and don't have a desire the root your device, this is your best choice on AT&T. Otherwise, it may be better to wait.Engadget Reader100June 2, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!With the big 4.7 display, you can't go wrong, the color are rich, but gets deluted in sunlight. So far i've been able to go a whole day without recharging. The size of the phonetakes some getting used to handling the device. I really appreciate the big display, but the battery life suffers because of that. The android ecosystem is taking some getting used to, because i've used an Iphone for so long. The BEST android phone out there, blows away an iphone.Engadget Reader90May 17, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Htc One X vs. iPhone 4sThe iPhone 4s the king of smartphones but who is this new knight the Htc One Â X. The king with a 8 megapixel Â shooter, retina display, iOS 5, and his new sword Siri. But this knight has some weapons of his own coming with 8 megapixel camera, 1080p video recording, 720 p hd screen, and his sword ice cream sandwich and Htc Sense 4.0. Who will win who will die and will this new knight become the new king or will the king continue his legacy. Time to find out.HardwareÂ The iPhone 4s has a 3.5 inch screen and is overpowered by the One X's bulging 4.7 inch screen. But it really isn't that much bigger than 4.3 inch screen phones and compared to the iPhone it is taller and skinner instead of shorter and thicker. The iPhone's speed is run by an A5 1 gigahertz dual core processor and a GB of RAM. On the other hand the One X's has a very snappy and quick 1.5 gigahertz Qualcomm Snapdragon s4 dual core processor and also comes with 1 GB of RAM.Winner: Htc One XDue to it's very snappy dual core processorÂ DisplayThe iPhone 4s with very shiny armor due to its retina display coming out with 326 Â ppi while the Htc One X's armor isn't as shiny but comes a Super LCD Panel 2 and 720 p hd screen though only comes out with 316 ppi though it can pack a punch with gorilla glass that can withstand 100 pounds of force but the Â iPhone has a chink in his armor because it's Â made of glass so one drop and you can say goodbye.Winner: iPhone 4sÂ Due to its amazing Retina Display.CameraÂ Eyesight and quick reflexives are a huge part of battles and both phones come with a jab of its own. The iPhone comes with an outstanding 8 megapixel camera with a f/2.4 auto focus lens that lets plenty of light in and comes with 1080p hd recording but the Htc One X also comes with a 8 megapixel camera but has a f/2.0 auto focus lens that lets even more light in than the iPhone's shooter. The One X also comes with 1080 p hd recording. The One X is probably hoping for the battle at night because his eyesight lets more light in.Winner: Htc One XDue to its amazing auto focus lens and 8 megapixel camera.SoftwareÂ The iPhone has iOS 5 but still lacks in widgets and personalizing. Compared to Htc Sense 4 and Ice Cream Sandwich it's a wooden bat to a sword but it makes that up with Siri your digital assistant. You can send text or call someone with just your voice but the best thing of all is that you can have random talks with her like if you say hi then Siri says hi back.Winner: Htc One XÂ Even though the iPhone has Siri it's more like a toy than a tool and the One X has a great software interface.Look and feelÂ The coat of arms if usually on the shield and it's no different here. The iPhone is made out of glass and metal on the side with the volume rocker and the mute on the left side. The One X on the other side is made out of polycarbonate matte on the back and glossy on the side. The volume rockerÂ is on the left side.Winner iPhone 4sEven though it's smaller it feels nice in the hand.Performance and Battery LifeThe One X has speeding fast 4g lte compared to the pony of 3G speeds of the iPhone and the battery life on the One X is outstanding but the iPhone simply out performs it because the screen isn't as bright and doesn't have 4g lte.Winner: Htc One X4g lte is hard to keep up with it and even though the battery life it is no match if you live in lte market.If you have been using a prepaid phone you should go with the iPhone 4s due to its simple interface but if you already have had a smartphone you should go with the Htc One X.Â So the knight lives up to the challenge and the king falls after so many great battles but has a son soon to challenge anybody in it's way the iPhone 5.Engadget Reader90May 17, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Overall a great phone. As much as I like Sense I think it is a little too much at times. Wish I could take the good parts of Sense and add it to the stock Android theme (Holo)Engadget Reader70May 11, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!i've more than 3000 contacts and it takes more than 5s to open my contact or find someone . the phone's also get too hot easily, and i find it hard to make a long call or simply put it in my pocket.kppr1290May 9, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The HTC One X is one of the best phones I've ever owned. Fast LTE and camera makes this phone a very good rival for the iPhone.Engadget Reader90May 9, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The first Android phone since the original Atrix (about a year ago) that I've used as my primary device. ICS and Sense 4.0 have improved matters greatly in terms of both polish and functionality (at last, screen shot function!) along with the traditional flexibility that the OS has always offered.The blazing performance smokes everything else out there and the size of the device along with the amazing screen have me debating whether or not one needs to carry a tablet.Many platitudes that have been piled on the hardware aspects of the device and while I don't find the industrial design to be that special it really is all about the screen and it is hard to overstate how brilliant it is.However, that brilliance comes at a price that may prove too hefty for me: truly awful battery life.... Unless I'm doing things with my phone that most other users don't (and I don't think I am) there are times, under heavy use, that this burns through 25-30% in an hour. Even when idling 10%+ per hour seems normal.I've come from the Lumia 800, which in my experience has the best battery life of any top-end smartphone going right now (yes, the One X does much more than the Lumia) and may somewhat distort my view but the battery life is totally unacceptable for a productivity device.And it charges slowly...I'm running software version 1.28.401.9 which was supposed to have improved battery life but has done so only marginally.As much as I love the speed, performance and how the phone obviates the need for a tablet if the battery life issues aren't solved soon I may trade down to the One S or go back to the Lumia 800.Update: Somewhat frustrated with HTC Sense I recently installed Cyanogen Mod 9 which brings stock Android 4.0 (ICS) to this device along with a few tweaks that allow further customization. Wow. This has breathed new life into this device. The first thing one notices is the speed. Stripped of all of Sense's chrome and other visual flourishes the whole UX feels much faster. Likewise widgets, especially lockscreen ones such as audio controls work much better and break less often (well, not at all, so far). Battery life doesn't seem to be any better or worse though. And the stock camera app isn't anywhere near as comprehensive as HTC's. The native Email app (for non-Gmail accounts) is much better than HTC's as it speaks to one of the othjer major benefits of stock ICS: greater visual consistency across the UI. This raises the oft debated topic of manufacturer/operator skins on devices and while I understand the reason for doing them (differentiation, regional localization, customization) it really does have a tendency to damage the experience, to say nothing about delays of getting software updates. If manufacturers and telcos want to ship customizations it would be so much better if they did so in the form of pre-installed apps: the HTC camera app is a good example, it is a truly great app and would even be something they could sell in the app store but given away on their own devices. Same thing with Beats audio. Other opportunities certainly exist. For now I'm even happier with this device now that it has stock ICS and hope that the update to Jelly Bean won't be far off.mjroberts90May 8, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Truly excellent smartphone. With ICS and a load of storage there is no danger of running out of space, meaning that you can install every app under the sun. Also future proofed with inclusion of NFC. Battery life isn't stellar but can be improved with updates over time - just remember to bring a charger if staying at a mates!Engadget Reader90May 5, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The HTC One X is a great beast of a phone. I loved the 4G LTE on AT&T followed by the 1.5 gHZ Dual-Core processor. The camera picked up every detail very clearly and overall it could be my daily on-the-go camera. Great phone!Engadget Reader90May 2, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!It's an evolution, not a revolution, but it is the best phone you can buy right now.Engadget Reader90May 2, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The HTC One X is a sexy phone, worthy of being the flagship device for AT&T, HTC, and Android in general. It looks slim form didn't hurt battery and last even longer than I expected. While there was a trade off for the AT&T version, with no microSD slot and a non-removable battery I still think this is a great device.You'll love the OS, you'll like Sense 4.0, and of course you'll love the camera. Then when you add in Beats Audio, it adds up to a great overall device. For $199 on contract, this is definitely a phone you want!Engadget Reader90April 27, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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" screen often2. Bugs here and there. You will get irritated3. Battery life is a bit on the bad side.

The display is one of the best I've ever seen. When I first got the phone, nothing compared to the beautiful colors it provided. Upon the release of the Samsung Galaxy S III, I compared the 2 with by playing the same video on both devices. The colors looked more vibrant on the One X, but the images were slightly sharper and more crisp on the Galaxy S III. Both have extraordinary displays.The speaker is kind of loud and is very clear and high quality for a phone. HTC clearly saw a nice big boost in this field since their Beats acquisition. The headset provided along with the phone is also pretty good, though I would rather have gotten the Beats headset with it.The camera really blew my mind. This camera is almost on par with some P&S's. Great camera shots with very fast focus adjustment. Works nice in low light. Most significant feature is the ability to take full 8 MP shots without losing any quality while recording 1080p.The device feels really great in your hand! I was expecting the phone to be too big to feel comfortable in my hand, but it feel like it's just about the right size. It's really thin and light form really helps make it feel not too large. The great texture of the hard plastic back on the phone makes it feel soft and comfortable in the hand while also clearly feeling like it can handle a bit of a beating. The phone is also shockingly light making many believe it's a flimsy phone that can't handle anything, but I feel it makes it feel more impressive. And of course, the tough Corning Gorilla Glass on top of the display makes it very scratch and shatter resistant.HTC Sense 4.0 is pretty sleek. I really like how much they've fixed up the UI. It really is delightful to look at, but it occasionally clashes a little bit with the stock Android UI if a 3rd party app is designed to look like the stock UI. The lockscreen is easily my favorite thing with the new HTC Sense.Engadget Reader90April 12, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I really love this thing. It may be the best Android smartphone ever, or the second one after the SGS2.
