AT&T now offering the HTC One X

AT&T now offering the HTC One X
The AT&T variant of the HTC One X is now available from the carrier at  a price of $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. The model is not endowed with the quad-core Tegra 3 like the international version of the phone, due to compatibility issues with LTE. But based on benchmark readings, you won't notice any drop off in performance with the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 under the hood. The Adreno 225 GPU takes care of the graphics side of things.

The AT&T HTC One X is equipped with a 4.7 inch Super LCD 2 display offering 720p resolution and a high pixel density reading of 312 ppi. 1GB of RAM is on board and the phone has 16GB of native memory which cannot be expanded since there is no microSD slot on the unit. The 8MP camera on back has an LED flash and AF and captures video in 1080p. For video chats and self-portraits, there is a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The camera on the HTC One X has already been well received by those who had received their phone a few days earlier than expected. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box with Sense 4.0 running on top.

Already we have had a minor controversy as the AT&T version of the HTC One X comes with a locked bootloader. The Taiwan based manufacturer says that sometimes there are restrictions that prevent an HTC phone from having its bootloader unlocked. By using the word "restrictions," HTC is believed to be pointing at AT&T.

Would be a great deal, if I didn't have to sign with At&t to get it.

HTC One X the only phone that made me love Android. Great phone, I would definitely recommend it over Samsung Galaxy 3. However users should get the battery updates.

I jus hate that it only has 16 gigs of storage, and no expansion... That sucks, cuz only 13 is available to the user.

Yeah, HTC messed up there. But at least they gave us 25 gigs of Dropbox, though not really useful for people who are against Cloud storage. But the EVO LTE will have expansion :)

Dropbox can only sync images/videos from your phone, not apps

Isn't that all you really need to store? I don't think you'll take up 16 GB of storage with just apps.

Not true - get rooted and get Titanium Backup, and you can sync a backup of apps and data to Dropbox.

They sync all data besides apps. How are you going to install 12 GB of app data to your phone?!

Great phone! Note: One X $549 no commitment price, cheaper that T-mobile One S ($599). I don't get it, Magenta what's up with you? :(

They're losing customers, which means losing money. They need that extra $50. That's why I'm jumping ship as soon as my contract runs out.

That's ebay, we're talking directly from the T-Mobile site

So? What you expect them to do, not charge as much as possible for early adapters and fudge the after rebate price to look good at $200? Amazon has it for $550.

i Still think S3 will beat every phone apart from Iphone 5 or what ever apple come up with because apple fans. HTc One x is out and alredy drop in price so much. you can get it free with two year contract with just £21 a month in the uk. i got iphone 4 and Galaxy ace love them both i realy wanted S3 but after looking at phone i wll wait for Note 2.

I would be doing the same, but now that the bootloader may not be easily unlockable, I am going to wait until more info comes out about the sprint variant's bootloader before moving forward.

I'm worried about this too, but I have a HTC Hero I'm just excited that I will finally have a high-end phone.

Nothing can compete with S3 or the padfone. Both have umatched performance and new capabilities.

What is the huge difference between iphone 4 n 4s? Why are you guys expecting a massive upgrade from s3? You can go ahead and buy this htc but please allow us to buy and enjoy our galaxy s3. Atleast we know our phone packs the fastest processor,battery and properbly a better camera than your htc. If you design looks better than ours you can eat your phone.

Why do you care so much? I have no dog in this race, my upgrade is still 12 months out. I'd probably take this phone if it had microSD. But why would you care?

HTC One X is a best phone for Galaxy S3 haters. HTC One X has no removable battery and no microSD slot if your battery have a short life or dead you have to buy a new phone with your own cash or a buy replacement warranty with this phone.

Christ, you're an idiot. No removable battery doesn't mean that you can't change it at all. If your phone is out of warranty then you can use a plastic spudger to open up the phone, then replace the battery.

are you guys blind or something. Samsung galaxy s3 is better than this. Galaxy s3 didn't live up to the over hyped expectation but that doesn't make bad. S3 isn't even the final version. It has 128gb of memory vs 13gb. I am a lg and sony fan not samsung's but the galaxy s3 is not that bad.

Im not in U.S. but I have some question... Can I buy sprint phone with AT&T microSIM??

Sprint phones are CDMA (+LTE) and cannot work on AT&T's network (GSM+UMTS/HSDPA+LTE). As you are not in the States, you should probably buy the global version of the One X (GSM+UMTS/HSDPA)
