HTC One X
The HTC One X is one of HTC’s newest Android smartphones, unveiled in February 2012 at the Mobile World Congress. It has a 4.7-inch screen, the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich interface, 1.5GHz quad core processor, up to 32GB of storage and an 8-megapixel camera with full HD video recording.
Polycarbonate seems to be the in thing these days. It’s what the HTC One X is made of, giving it a smooth, sexy finish, especially in white. Its unibody build ensures a solid feel: one that feels good to hold. For a phone with a large 4.7-inch screen it feels surprisingly nimble.
Aspiring owners will also be pleased to know that the battery has enough stamina to last a full day with everything chugging away. So you can browse the web, use apps and check your social network accounts without fear of the battery dying on you.
The Nvidia Tegra 3 processor inside delivers fast performance during all the above. Gaming, internet, browsing apps all comes easily to the HTC One X. It makes using the device an absolute joy to own.
The 8-megapixel camera is also very impressive, delivering great results in most conditions. It also takes pictures very quickly, making it great for capturing those fleeting moments. And we love the ability to take snaps during filming.
Unfortunately the HTC One X’s screen isn’t as impressive as Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus panel, losing points in contrast. Blacks also do not come out quite as well either.
Navigating can also feel a little old school, with nav’ buttons appearing as capacitive keys below the screen instead of being part of the screen itself.
