HTC One series spec comparison: HTC One X vs One S vs One V
HTC’s 2012 MWC event is officially over and it brought us the One series: HTC’s attempt to refresh its image with three new devices. 

The HTC One X heads the lineup with its huge 4.7” display and impressive processing power, the HTC One S takes pride in its solid aluminum body and extremely thin profile, while the HTC One V is the most affordable one in the bunch but still brings up good memories with its HTC Legend-like chin and aluminum unibody.

Now, there’s one more handset in the picture - the AT&T-bound HTC One XL. It looks like merely a version of the HTC One X, trading the Tegra 3 silicon of the international One X for a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with integrated LTE. Otherwise, the devices are identical.

But that doesn’t tell you the whole story, does it? The hard specs can’t hide anything, so with no further ado, we’ve placed all HTC One handsets together, so you can easily see how they differ.

because they have the best networks... or at least big red does :D

But anyone know why the Teg3 was dumped for the S4? Are LTE chips and tegras not playing well again????

Because using Tegra 3 with external baseband for LTE would make the battery life like a Thunderbolt all over again, and the S4 has almost identical performance with integrated baseband.

ive heard s4 is better than t3

i can agree cuz s4 is a15 while t3 is a9

but for battery life, quad core is better

t3 does not support lte anyway, the upcoming chips from nvidia do, i forgot the name i think its grey or something idk; s4 supports lte

The HTC One V I bet is going to virgin mobile and other pre paid carriers. Those specs are just horrible, even with ICS, single core 1ghz and 512mb of ram? So sad

I'm guessing with those specs, it will be very, very, very cheap. Maybe like 250$ off contract. But if it is anything more than that, I doubt it would sell more.

So because I said the V was probably going to pre paid carriers you thumbs me down? You have some serious issues that need to be looked into.

i swear the specs are so 2011 ish... it only has 4 gigs of internal rom, slcd2 and ice cream sandwhich which makes it better than my desire s but in my opinion, desire s is still better :)

I think you guys should start listing not just the thickness but also the width and height. My ideal phone is no more than 2.6" wide and 5.15" tall. Thickness is cool but width is what actually determines how comfortable it is too hold. That's why I could never use the RAZR, too wide and no curve on the back. Sometimes these devices are too thin. Thinness isn't a standard to beat, it should only be as thin as it is comfortable to hold.

The One V is their low end handset and isn't built to compete at the op of he market. The One S is a beefed up Sensation and the One X is their answer to the GALAXY S3 and the likes. I just hope Super LCD ll is on par with Super AMOLED.

You gotta wonder though, if they gave the One S an AMOLED screen, why not give their flagship a 720p AMOLED screen? Unless they think Super LCD ll is better then AMOLED...

I hope the new dual core S4 chips stand well against Tegra lll. Just out of interest, does anyone know I the chip in the Xperia S is an S4 or S3, that could make all the difference...

Since Samsung is the only manufacturer of HD Amoleds, they probably have exclusive rights for a few months so HTC didn't want o wait so they went to another company for screens.

Not a fan of the new naming system. But like the specs. Hoping Sense compliments and doesn't detract from ICS. I think that more than any other factor will dictate how successful HTC's new line is, at least here in the US.

no Micro-SD expandable slot would be the big cons for HTC one.

so is it just me or has anyone else noticed at&t's version has dropped 16gb internal memory and no one is looking at that especially with no expandable memory? not to mention loss of quad core for LTE?
