I think that's a dump idea by HTC if it's making the same screen size as the old one; why wont HTC compete with Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note II in screen size?

That's a job for the HTC Nexus 5, or the Droid Incredible X it might be called when it makes its way to Verizon.

Because most people still want a phone over a phablet. It's pretty difficult for most people to one hand a One X or SGS3 as it is.

You kidding? It's only .35" thick. It might be too wide, but you can't make phones much thinner. Especially since they increased the battery size.

Is it true that they upgraded the gpu as well? Thought I heard that somewhere...

Gpu has been overclocked from 416 to 520 mhz.

well that would explain the benchmarks being over 7500! they not only over clocked the cpu but the Gpu as well?

And there's the fact that this is a new Tegra 3, that along with the overclocking of the CPU and GPU it still brings better battery life. This even beats out the Exynos.

All of this adds up to make this new Tegra go up against the King of Quads, the S4 Pro. Not bad, considering Tegra is usually the worst of the new generation of chips.

better battery life is a major win for it knowing that its overclocked!

If it really does offer 64 megabytes of internal storage something's probably wrong with it

Lack of a microSD slot, not 2GB of RAM, and no red highlights are the things that's really disappointed me in the announcement of the One X+. It looks like the 3D, Carousel-like Sense UI is back, but will it have that entirety of the Sense 3.0 UI? Hopefully it brings back some of that UI, something I experienced with the Sense 3.0 upgrade for my now rooted HTC Inspire 4G. I'm really stuck in choosing my next phone when my upgrade is due in January.... I want the One X+ badly, as well as the Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus G, and SGS3 (but the latter two being else intriguing because of the low internal memory, unless the Galaxy Note II is not going to be released with a 64GB version as well).
