Not a business phone
gooman has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Poor battery life and overheating means its useless for business use. Also limited (and non upgradable) memory means you can't install enough apps.
Avoid at all costs if you want something reliable for business.Build quality 1/10Reception 7/10Call quality 7/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 6/10UI speed 6/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 6/10Display 6/10Battery 2/10

never recommend htc to anyone
padmaja7881 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
horrible service from htc. i bought the phone in oct' 2013. Since April this year its gone dead three times and i am roaming around them for the service. the collection center doesn't have answer for any of my questions. they simply say call the customer care. since last one month my phone is with them for 15 days and i submitted again today. waste of time and money with HTC...

HTC One X 32Gb by Millenial at work
millenialatwork has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I've been an HTC user from the times the first Desire phones arrived. as a business person, I spend 16h interacting with the phone (no games) per day. Smartphone is the essence of my work, and I consider a phone great if it can handle moi for a year. One X, really fails to meet the expectations as after 9 months of usage (2 of which it spend with the manufacturer in repairs), I'm looking to get something else.Build quality 6/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 6/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 10/10Display 7/10Battery 8/10

best phone i have ever used

in the starting i did had battery problem.. but after the updates it gives awesome battery backup. i get 34 to 40hr of back up on 2g network. and if u do heavy calling then 15 to 18 hr of backup with internet on when required. i dont have any problem with the phone and i feel it was worth every penny i spent.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 8/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10

Could have been great
KlamKhowder has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Instead of putting my full review here I've listed my experiences at length under each category.
This phone is a pain to root, and you can thank HTC's S-On "feature" for that. I have heard that in the new HTC One, S-On is much less intrusive, but that doesn't change that after over a year the HTC One X still never got S-Off, and the Community was never able to reliably produce S-OFF. This means that flashing custom roms requires several extra steps, and that upgrading HBOOT through any other method than OTA is downright frustrating. If you are not familiar with the terms HBOOT, S-On / S-Off, then welcome to the world of HTC induced arbitrary security measures that do nothing better than make developers suffer and updates slow.
I chose the HTC one S as an alternative because it did not suffer from the same build quality problems that plagued the One X, but you still end up with a good phone that has aged much more gracefully than the One X and the Tegra3
I chose the Nexus 4 as an alternative because hardware wise, there is nothing the One X offers that the Nexus 4 does not have. The nexus 4 also has a developer community that is not plagued by the problems that HTC has forced upon the One X community.Build quality 7/10Reception 5/10Call quality 7/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 7/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 10/10Display 7/10Battery 1/10
- High Quality Screen, if yours has no problems.
- Tegra 3 processor had a lot of power in it's hayday
- 32gb onboard storage is good enough for most people i feel
- Beautiful looking, very thin, very premium feel.
- pretty durable, I have dropped it a few times and it's only got some small dents
- Battery situation is literally the worst.
- Wi-fi is almost unusable with many units as the antenna is broken
- The Tegra3 in this phone has 4 different, secret variants that represent hardware revisions. Should you recieve a unit with a variant zero, or one chip, performance will be noticably less, especially with custom firmware
- Gets insanely hot during any kind of gaming thanks to the 40nm fab Nvidia used to make the Tegra3, 2d games are not an exception.
- multi-touch is very unreliable
- Tegra3 is outmatched by even dual core Qualcomm chipsets from the same era

Htc one is an amazing phone
Just one thing wrong i noticed, life battery is the worst I used in my life
But the phone is awesone it can perform any work easily, still wanting for the update to jb 4.2.2 and so on
ANother thing is that I dont like the keyboard and htc sense is very limited. I cannot change the background image and the police, hope they'll send an update to improve customization more.Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 7/10Display 9/10Battery 4/10

HTC One X (Awesome phone)
tommy7 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
One of the most powerful and best phone in the market. After reading reviews and specifications I choose this HTC One X instead of Samsung Galaxy3. Before I heard good things about HTC devices. Now I enjoy using every minutes of this handset.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

A very awesome phone, but needs a bit of improvement
hassamrehmat has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Its very good for everyday usage but the battery time and camera could use a little bit of improvement. The multimedia also is a bit disappointing but there are alternatives for that.

Awesome mobile, but needs to be improved
tarcisiorm has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
HTC One X International Version is impressive, it's build quality is very curious, not plastic as another one. Mine WiFi is normal, but sometimes it disconect and conect again, don't know if just mine. For internet viewing it's great, as its 720p let you see all the page without problems, so are the videos, that it can render 1080p @ 60fps 24mbps from my digital camera. HTC Sense is beautiful, the best UI available, BUT it is still heavy, so it's easy to see some frame skips, but some animations are smoothly too. Camera is fine, looks like a normal digital camera, but I think S3 or Iphone 5 has a better one. But the worst lack is the battery. It only works for around 4h for web browsing. And less than 2h for polygonal games. So I had bought an external emergency charger, that sometimes even with energy charger it uses more than recharge. It takes SO long to recharge if you are with display on.
So I think HTC should improve their HTC Sense framerate (it's almost perfect, but for a high-end, must be 60fps always), longer battery (One X+ should get a better battery, but Droid DNA/Butterfly...) and recharge faster. But HTC One X is a lovely cellphone and I just LOVE it! When HTC realize the next cellphone after Butterfly, I should buy it, Hope it gets 12MP camera and record 1080p 60fps videos.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10
- 720p display
- Best UI - Simple, elegent, beautiful
- 25GB for your files + 2 for apps
- Good Build quality
- Cheaper than its alternatives
- Bad Battery
- Camera still could be better
- No memory card slot

close to perfect
fthossain has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
i have been an iphone user forever and never used such a big phone...iv had this phone for a while now and people who want to use their phone with one hand definitely should not buy this phone...on the contrary for web browsing and media junkies, its probably as good as it gets.
build quality is very good and you would be able to use it for a long time...with plastic you wont get dents on it as metal.
battery is sufficient for calls web browsing and everything else.
overall the experience is quite pleasant. but the size really makes it hard to make a call when your driving or if you only have one hand.Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 9/10Display 8/10Battery 7/10

Poor Build Quality
The_Maverick has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I purchased the HTC One XL. This was my first HTC phone and I can say I am very disappointed with it. This is due to the poor build quality.
Only after a few days of use, the ceramic coating on my phone's gun metal grey chassis started to chip off. This was despite the fact that my phone had been carefully handled and had not been subjected to any sort of bashing or dropping.
A few days later, my phone developed 2 more problems. Firstly, a wifi connectivity issue arose. All of a sudden my phone was no longer able to connect to wireless networks. A quick search on Google showed that other users have had similar problems and that HTC has acknowledged the existence of such problems. Some users say that the wifi connection can be re-established by squeezing the phone at a particular place. To me this indicates a hardware problem and is simply unacceptable. The second problem was with the screen. The top right hand corner of my screen was poorly fitted and after only 2 weeks of use, what appears to be tiny trapped air pockets started to appear under the glass.
I am very disappointed with my HTC phone. This was supposed to be a flagship phone yet the build quality has let it down. I have complained directly to HTC and have so far not received a response. I have sent my phone into their Hong Kong repair centre to have it repaired. The staff at the repair centre did not seem helpful at all. The after sales service quality is poor. I will now have to wait and see if they will give...Build quality 2/10Reception 6/10Call quality 6/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 7/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 6/10Display 8/10Battery 3/10
