Q3 What about the options button. Was the options button really replaced with a multitasking button. If so , how will this effect the phones compatibility to apps.

I have a One X on pre order, the only thing that I'm not sure about is getting music off of it and onto a dock a la iphone, can you reccomend anyway of doing so? I assume it would have to be wirelessly so am wondering if an airplay equiped B&W Zeppelin would be compatible.

Q4 right now, I'm using Samsung Galaxy Note, is it good for me if I want to use HTC One X? Can you guys make a comparison for both of it. Take note, I'm not living in USA

Q7. What do you guys have to say about the image chip, and how much does shooting videos at 23fps matter exactly?

Hey PhoneArena, first of all, thank you for all those great articles and reviews that make our geeky hearts beat a little more geeky every day :-) I have a question regarding the HTC One X and HTC One S, I guess it applies to both models: since there is a missing dedicated hardware camera button (Why HTC? Why?...), can the user at least remap the volume rocker keys or the lock key to be a camera shutter button when the camera application is open? Thanks! KarolR

android ice cream sandwich still lags in some areas on my galaxy nexus s. Does the 4 cores (5, technically) prevent the htc one x from lagging?

is the 32GB enough for playing many gameloft games + 4GB of media? I won't be using cloud storage... Q.2 If I want a quad core phone, top notch, should I buy the One X, or wait for another? It would be best if it's tegra 3...

I read your review but really cannot understand why you did not like the phone. Can you explain further?

Q8 Will there be an HTC One X variant coming to Verizon?

Why does the engadget HTC One X review say it records at a fluid 30FPS and on the phonearena review it records at 23FPS, did you have a faulty unit? The One S according to the benchmarks is faster when you get a One S can you do a full comparison against its more expensive sibling, it also seems the battery life is better on the One S

Q7. What's battery life like? Specifically in moderate to heavy use, and what settings you had it on to achieve that battery life, e.g. Brightness up halfway, WiFi off... Q8. Where their any signs of lag with the Tegra 3 Processor? Like I honestly mean ANY, is it as buttery smooth as the iPhone 4S?

How come you made software related aspects of the phone a con when they can be changed?

Ray s, or whoever knows. Will the One X have a notification light. It is one of my top requirements and reviews often forgo/forget to mention it. Thanks

I used to feel the same way and got used to having one on all my phones. Then I found "No LED" app and I dont care anymore, works better than a notification light. Check it out. *not affiliated with the creation or maker of the app, just a happy user.

Is the size of the One X prohibitive for those with small to normal sized hands? Is it awkward to use?
