That mysterious HTC Era 42 handset that showed up on a leaked T-Mobile screenshot a few weeks ago is apparently the HTC One X+; and what does the plus sign indicate? How about a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 plus processor of course!...

It is very annoying when android does this. Motorola released the bionic, the razr, the razr maxx all in like two months and now these rumors with HTC. Hope sammy never stoops to this level.

Hopefully Sammy never stoops to this level? Are you serious? The Galaxy S2 debuted on AT&T in October. The upgraded Galaxy S2 Skyrocket debuted a month later with LTE. They already have. All the companies do it.

Are you saying you like the iPhones speed of producing phones?? Lets say the iPhone comes out and then a year later you can upgrade your phone would you want a brand new phone or a phone with a year old processor? They do it for a reason, to give the consumers something else they may like better.

Ugh sorry I ment if the iPhone came out and then you wanted to get a better phone 6 months down the road, but you wanted the newest phone.

Can't help but notice that a lot of previous commenters are pissed because they're looking at this from their own selfish point of view. People are constantly rolling off their constracts all the time. Not everybody are in the same upgrade schedule as these "new device ADHD inflicted" people. When people are ready to upgrade, having waited as long as 2 years, most of them would want to buy an up-to-date device right away and not have to make a choice whether to buy a 6-month old device or wait another 6 months for the next model. Think about it.

okay, for even discussing this whether i like it or not, i know i am going to get thumbs down'd into oblivion, but that is the price of free will

i think this is the reason that apple is being such a deuche bag and going so psychotically overboard to protect their ecosystem. this is why they have all the profits. the secret to their success is not the phones themselves, it is the eco system. it is how easy the phones are to use and how easy it is to get them to work with each other in addition to a family of tablets and computers

and don't get me wrong, the specs are decent, but because the advertising point is not a 1.6ghz processor or 2gb of ram (just pointing it out, seriously not trying to take pot shots), its how easy it is to do the majority of major smartphone features. i don't care what you say, that is a fact. it may not be cutting edge or beautiful, but it has it where it counts for the main things

and because the main feature people buy it for is being able to interact with their friends. honestly, messages has been so nice to have. i have a chat room with my famliy, with my old college room mates, and some people that i have met on my current reseach project. there may be better solutions, but seeing it just work without me having to do anything brought a smile to my face

this is why apple is fighting so hard, even to the point of making themselves look ridiculous. because the option is to be in the shark pool with everyone else
that is why no one makes money. because as soon as you release something, you have to already have the next one ready to go to stay on the cutting edge. you have to be able to advertise high ram, faster clock speeds, bigger screens, higher resolutions or you get forgotten

none of the android makers have anything really that would keep people sticking around for very long. in fact often it seems like anything they try to do ends up pushing people away.

rather than sitting back on .5gb of ram and an 800mhz processor, if apple fell into that game they would have to releas an iphone 5 then four months later an iphone 5 hd and then three months later an iphone 5s hd and their massive profit margin would be consumed in designing and producing new phones that will be obsolete and unwanted in six months

don't get me wrong, i think apple has stepped over the line with their lawsuits. they are wrong and these days are getting borderline evil, but i understand better why they do what they do

android companies would be so much more profitable if it wasn't such an insane race for the top with everyone knocking each other off and climbing on each other while apple saunters by with the iphone on a leash waving at everyone struggling to have the biggest, shartpest, screen and the fastest processor. and let's face it, anyone would admit that the new iphones may not be revolutionary, but they tend to be just on par for lower high shelf. stop and think about that for a second

I'll give you some credit, most of it was true. I believe Android could do it the Samsung Galaxy S2 is still a great phone if i could have got that for free instead of paid $200 on a Samsung Galaxy S3 i proballly would have... It's still a great phone and for people who don't have alot of money for a SGS3 or iPhone I'd recommend that to them cause it's cheaper. Ok now your saying it's better to sue the hell out of other companies so they can't produce better phones? Why don't they just make a better phone instead of waiting a year every time huh? Answer that...

i'm not suggesting that litigation is the option
in fact i think i made it very clear that i think apple is wrong
and see, you missed the entire point of what i was saying
the problem is that android manufacturers are releasing new phones every few months
instead what they should do is release a family of devices and just market the crap out of them and build them enough that costs go down
content is not improving fast enough to warrant so many new phones
instead they end up wearing themselves out by producing phone after phone after phone because essentially there is no reason for a customer to stay loyal to any particular android handset manufacturer
the reason apple should not "just make a better phone instead of waiting a year" is because they profit ridiculously
the phone becomes cheaper to produce over time and with big numbers
if android slows down they will become more profitable and customers get the benefit of enjoying a premium feeling device longer

What does the Tegra 3+ have over the Tegra 3 exactly? Or is it basically the same? This looks very nice, though is it too much to hope for a quad S4 instead of Tegra? An over-clocked processor and possible RAM boost is welcome as long as they can give it the extra battery to back it up. Micro-SD slot would be nice for alot of people too.

One X with;

Processor upgrade

more RAM (1.5-2 GB)

And bigger battery (>2000)

Means that this is yet another contestant in my next phone. So many options.
The next Nexus, Sony Xperia GX, upcoming One X sequel, Razr HD, and now this. Gonna be a hard decision.

For all the people complaining about how they release newer phones so soon it's actually a good thing cause it's forcing the mobile world to make things better for us. Exactly what Apple needs, so they don't keep doing a 4 to 4S upgrade.

Dam I bought HTC One S, but I do have the two year bestbuy's Black Tie Insurance on it. And last time I returned a Samsung galaxy prevail which also had the black tie insurance the employees didn't follow the rules to the insurance and get me a replacement. They did something better and asked if I wanted the credit back so I purchased another phone all on credit. Hope they do the same with my HTC one s.
