HTC One VX hands-on
Seriously, it’s hard to even believe for a moment that the upcoming AT&T bound HTC One VX is going to be positioned as a budget-oriented smartphone, mainly because we’re totally stoked about its solid build quality. Even better, its specs sheets is a treasure full of high-end goodness that should make even some highly respectable premier devices shake in their boots.

Quickly looking over the handset in question, one of the first things to come to mind is how it made us remember about the HTC One S from earlier in the year, but then again, the One VX is able to separate itself enough from its distant relative. Specifically, it’s packing a sizable 4.5” qHD Super-LCD 2 screen, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, and LTE connectivity to give it enough distinction from the rest of the things out there.

Obviously, we’re most curious about pricing with this small bundle of joy – especially when it’s going to be a step beneath HTC’s other offering in the One X+ for AT&T. Nevertheless, we’ll certainly know that information in the near future, but in the meantime, here are some of the standouts that shine with the HTC One VX for AT&T.

LOL, I sometimes wonder how people can claim things they have never seen with their own eyes or touch them with their own hands. Cos things looks different on your screen than when you see them 9 9(oh Nine Nine means: face to face).

There's a lot of difference between 'Build quality is awesome and solid.' and 'Build quality looks awesome and solid'...should be 'built' though.
Won't be surprised if Kartik here gets annoyed and give me a thumbs down. :D

Question, qHD resolution is fine, but since it is LCD2 that means it isn't pentile right?

I'd assume it's the standard RGB matrix.
