HTC One X for AT&T Review
0. phoneArena 01 May 2012, 17:02 posted on
AT&T is literally on fire! And why’s that you ask? Well, in the last few months alone, we’ve been seeing the carrier getting in with some big name smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE, Nokia Lumia 900, and HTC Titan II. Needless to say, it’s arguable as to which one is deemed as the best of the bunch, but AT&T isn’t letting down one bit whatsoever with its selection – that’s because the mightiest one is about to set things ablaze with its piercing set of features. Arriving on May 6th for the 2-year contract price of $199.99, the modified HTC One X for AT&T is already shaping out to give its closest ...

If the AT&T version got an 8.5/10 the international version deserved at least a 9/10.
International version has an better chipset (most benckmark apps are not yet optimized for quad-cores with the exeption of a few ex. AnTuTu benchmark).
Other things that are more personal preference than anything else: No AT&T bloatware or 2 year agreement.

International variants on contract still have bloatware and 2 year agreements or more.
International version has a chipset with less per-core IPC and horribly low memory bandwidth, and much less battery life.
They got what they got, get over it.

something doesn't add up with phonearena's scores in general and the user reviews. for instance, this phone. how is it that one x users AVERAGE user rating is 9.8 and phonearena's score is an 8.5. most fans of this site are pretty well versed on smartphones, especially android and sometimes even seem to know a little bit more than the reviewer from experience and hard cold facts. either PA are really tough critics, or laughably biased.

The HTC One X is, by far, the best smartphone that I have used to this day. However, there are some negatives about the phone. Heres my complete and purely unbiased review:
0 = EPIC FAIL, 10= EPIC WIN
Display- 9. The display is by far, the best display that I have seen on a smartphone. The quality and size of the screen makes for a spacious plane for people that have banana thumbs, like me, that can browse the web and text on.
Camera- 8. I have seen better cameras on smartphones. The camera on the One X comes packed with 8MP worth of quality when you want to capture the perfect photo for your smartphone's photo portfolio.
Storage- 6. If there is one thing about the One X that is moderate, it would be the storage capabilities. The HTC One X (AT&T Model) comes with 16 GB internal storage without any means of expanding the storage (microSD card slot). I am somewhat disappointed with this, but at the same time, you're not going to get every single high-end feature on a smartphone at this point in time.
Battery- 7. I see many people complaining about the battery power on a smartphone. First off, I would like to point out that a powerful smartphone is like a racecar. You are going to burn more fuel with a bigger engine (draining battery power utilizing smartphone features in this case).
Dimensions- 9. Here we go with the size of the phone... The size of the phone is perfect for me. With the size of the phone being almost a credit card and a half, it still fits comfortably in my pocket without any hassle or discomfort. The slimness of the One X is second to none for a phone of its kind. The curvical design of the phone makes the phones appearance unique and cool.
Phone Navigation and GUI- 9. When a consumer selects a smartphone, sometimes they want their phone to be as easy to navigate as possible. The GUI of the One X is rather easy to navigate through and unique. The smartphone comes equipped with an ice cream sandwich or two (Android 4.0.3) to satisfy the hunger for us app consuming, processing monsters.
Connectivity- 10. I give the connectivity an EPIC WIN of a 10, because i have had no problems with connecting to a wi-fi hotspot or 4G. For that Eager McBeaver in most of us, you will not be disappointed with the loading times in most cases (Not counting the few time-out errors that have occured on a wi-fi connection).
What is my verdict, you say? I give the HTC One X a "9 out of 10" or "WIN SAUCE" rating.
My personal recommendations...
1. A case. You want to your One X investment. Unfortunately, the camera lens is easy to scratch.
2. Beats Audio headphones. I have a set of these to go with my phone and... man o' live, the beats be thumpin' with em' on. With Beats Audio built integrated into the phone, you will want to make the best out of it with a set of headphones that mean business.
