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 ...

This is great except for the storage.

Thanks for the review! This is a good way to gauge the EVO LTE.

Now to wait if getting the S3 is worth getting out of Sprint :P

I'm skeptical about the mashup of colors in use with the EVO 4G LTE. From what I saw, it had three different color schemes going on - so yeah, we'll see how that fares versus this pristine beauty.

Eh, that's the same mashup of colors that's always been used in the Evo line: red, black, and silver.

I've always been puzzled by their choice of red though; it seems way too Verizon-ish. At the risk of making the handset look like a gigantic bee, I think it would be a better show of Sprint solidarity to go with yellow and black instead.

Glossy white front, yellow-gold kickstand, and matte black on the back would be amazing.

Will Samsung bring something better to the table ? And is it worth waiting on?

i'd say to wait. you'll probably know what you'll want to do at the end of this week unless you're on Verizon and you feel like waiting for the Droid Razr MAXX HD.

Bad battery again...

Battery life is actually quite good apparently.

4 hours of screen on time should be doable.

I need an opinion. Should I exchange for this or keep my galaxy note? Browsing, gaming, and music are a big deal for me and I love the huge screen on the note. 4.7 sounds good but I'm not sure if I'll like it as much as thegalaxy notes display. I'm so confused and the 7th is the last day I can switch. Also, I got the note at a discount because of a mishap on my account so I only paid $149.99. So I'll be adding money for the one x. Is it worth it?

Also does anyone know if this comes with earphones?

It does not state that they are included in the box. It looks awesome from this article and everything else I've seen on it. I think it would be worth exchanging the Galaxy Note for this device!

If I could get a Note for 150 I'd have one now... I'd keep it. Though the Beats Audio is an advantage of the One X over the Note since you like music.

I'd definitely take the One X, if only for the MAJOR boost in processing power.

You have to remind yourself that while the One X has a better CPU, it doesn't have a microsd slot and the batteries are nonremovable.

If it was me, I would just stick with the Note.

And as far as Beats Audio goes, you can just buy a DSP app on the market so you can mess with your EQs to your liking.

I like the extra row arrow. It make it easier to change or edit text on a touch screen maybe it is not for everyone. The good thing is the 2 out of the 3 negative you can change.

Agreed. The directional arrows on my Evo have been a godsend over the last couple years.

Debating on whether to get the AT&T or the International version is painful!!

57 on NenaMark2!
That's an amazing result, far better than ULPGeForce on Tegra 3.
Seems like Adreno 225 is one fine GPU.

I am starting to think HTC is paying people to review...
Honest feedback I have seen from HOFO and XDA, battery life is in the 12-14 hr range under regular usage, the matte finish is prone to scufffing, scratches, the pic quality is decent under good light (albiet soft) and terribly grainy under low light, video recording is fine but not as advertised for sure.
And I can't seem to understand how just under 10gb of usable space on a flagship is tolerated. If this was any other manufacturer reviewers would roast them, but for some reason it barely gets mention here...

Damn at&t making it 16GB with only about 9.93GB left for users is super lame. I think at&t purposely does it so customers are "forced" to increase their data plan (ie. from 3GB to 5GB).
I would definitely get it right away if it has 32GB built-in storage.
I guess I might have to give Samsung Galaxy S3 a try... although I love Sense UI from hTC.
