An Android phone like what it should be

Protectator has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I am really content with this phone. The One X has and is everything I want on a mobile phone. Except for one thing maybe ; The battery life. I find it correct and I can easily go for an entire day with it, but using it with my habits, I have to charge it the afternoon because it won't last the second day. Except of that, I just don't really know what to say because it is so user-friendly, I'm using it without asking questions about anything. I does everything I ask, and it does it good.

HTC ONE X International Version !!

SherlockHolmes has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Awesome Device !!
First Htc Device and will always opt for Htc Device till life !!
You know Benchmarks can be little different between Htc ONE X and Samsung Galaxy S3 but for day to day usage both phones are as fast !!
Display , Design , User-Interface , Build Quality , Beats Integration , Very sharp images and Videos took me from S3 to ONE X !!
Galaxy S3 the pixels can be differentiated and images and video do not look sharper , Build Quality is very Cheap , Looks Ugly and do not give a feel of 750 $ phone !!

Htc for life since now !!

The best of HTC indeed!

gwuhua1984 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I thought this phone was a lot faster than I expected. I believe I am one of the lucky ones who received a HTC One X that doesn't have any bugs. That means, no problem with camcording, screen flickering, and etc. I'm truly glad that I got with the One X. The phone is light, but feels sturdy on hand. The display was absolutely beautiful. The sd card is internal and non expandable, but more than enough for most users. To me, the phone was the perfect choice. I've taken out the CON because Sense 4.1 is made the phone run much faster.

Build quality 10/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 8/10 I find the stock browser somewhat not suitable to the device, but I find it performs better with Chrome browser.
Multimedia 10/10
Camera 9/10 The camera is pretty good, but I would like the stock camera to customize file name.
UI speed 9/10 HTC UI is nonetheless beautiful. I do notice occasionally slow downs, not very often.
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 9/10 Text input most of the time was nice, the keyboard may be a bit too small, but good thing the dictionary could pick up the words just fine.
Display 10/10 The display was stunning!
Battery 10/10 Battery life is definitely up there. Despite the battery capacity being so small for such a powerful device, the phone could actually last through a whole day of normal use. To me, with a battery like that lasting as long as it could, it deserves a 10.

Pros

  • Tegra 3 Exclusive apps
  • Sense 4.1

Cons

Great Phone. Very fast. Gorgeous screen and also very thin.
Sense 4 is very well polished. Android 4.0.3 is very nice.
There are only 2 thinks missing, the phone needs a cover( pouch) and the battery is not perfect.

One of the nicest phone I have ever owned

kylehudsons has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

The screen is mega amazing. I just can't say or describe it you just need to see it for yourself, the brightness, contrast, and the viewing angles, it's all amazing and are beyond words you need to see to believe it. I also love the microdots that they have made for the speaker grill and the earpiece. It makes them looks totally different and more unique and authentic. Everything is great about it but there is only 1 problem which is if we play a hardcore game on it and then the temperature rises like crazy up to 50 degree celcius....

Build quality 10/10 Everything is great with all the unibody...
Reception 10/10 Well, I never loss reception
Call quality 10/10 Loud and clear
Internet 9/10 Dont know whats missing but there is still room for improvement
Multimedia 10/10 The screen help on this 1
Camera 9/10 Great and is good and everything but still has room for improvements
UI speed 10/10 The speed is great
Everyday usage 10/10 Its perfect and everything is beyond reach. Mails, call, GPS, and all the other basics a smartphones should have...
Text input 10/10 I love the keyboard and the big screen helps in the input
Display 10/10 Superb... No words to describe it
Battery 7/10 I can get it last for 2 days with some light and daily usage but when I try to push gaming and long hours of movie watching, the battery totally flows like water...

Pros

  • Big 4.7' screen
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Great call quality
  • Beats audio
  • Sense 4.0 and ICS
  • Quadcore Tegra 3 processor plus 1 backup processor (dunno what it is call)
  • Games run mega smooth like butter
  • Nice to hold and nice to see
  • Heads are turning when the phone is out of my pocket on the street

Cons

  • Battery life need a bit longer but still acceptable
  • It gets heat up quickly with great graphic perfomance games in play

HTC One X - Hands on Review

wedding21 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

right. The phone has not disappointed me so far. I love the light weight, great design and the finishing. Apart from the great HTC Sense overlay, I love how the phone feels on my hand and every one who has seen the phone has fallen in love with it. The camera is pretty awesome as i. it is a 2.0 - which means it takes great low light images and ii. it can take images whilst shooting video. The speed at which the cam focuses it amazing. www.kedr.com.au

love HTC.......

saransh007 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

HTC's One X is a collection of firsts. It's the first HTC handset with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the first with a 720x1,280-pixel screen, and the first with a quad-core processor; its Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset even includes a GeForce graphics core and a "companion core" - a fifth processor core that takes over essential functions when the phone is idle to save power.
The huge 4.7in screen's IPS panel is bright and colourful, if not quite as punchy as the OLED screens on the Motorola RAZR or Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The screen's contrast also can't match that of its rivals. Blacks weren't as deep and whites not as bright in our side-by-side tests with those phones. Colours were on the vibrant rather than accurate side, although you may prefer this for gaming and reading websites. The 720p resolution is ideal for web browsing; we could easily read headline and summary text on the BBC News homepage in landscape mode, and then double-tap to zoom in to individual stories.

The One X's screen is rounded at the edges and sits proud of its white surround. There's very little space around the screen, except at the bottom where three touch-sensitive buttons handle Back, Home and the new Open Tasks function, which shows which apps are currently running. The handset is light and comfortable to hold, with the matt-white plastic providing adequate grip.

This phone incredible! (Orinally Posted: 04/15/2012)

I have a HTC One X (quad-core international version). Immediately when you boot the phone you'll be amazed by the gorgeous screen! The colors are absolutely breath-taking and the resolution is top of the line. I am in love with the design. I have the grey version. When I bought the phone it was listed as being available in only white or grey, not black. The phone is ment to be grey even though some retailer are listing the grey as black. Their mistaken. There is no black version of the HTC One X. Period. As far as the feel of the phone it's extremely light weight but, that should not be mistaken as a weak choice in materials by HTC. The gorilla glass on the screen is extremely durable resistant to scraches. The screen is slightly curved on it's edges which is a very nice touch especial when it comes to the feel of the phone and touching the edge of the screen. The phone feels great in my hand. I don't consider myself to have big hand and I can easily handle the UI with one hand. Like I mentioned before the materials on this device feel extremely durable. I will leave some links to stress test videos at the bottom. I've seen this phone put though a dryer and in another video the phone was scratched relentlessly with a key on both sides and I couldn't fine on scratch on it (Note: In the dryer video the phone was not taken out of the dryer but the phone screen was on the entire time and looked to be in great condition). I've also inculded a drop test video. The...
