Summary: If you can live without 4G, the HTC One X+ is a mighty phone. It’s fast, furious and utterly beautiful, with build quality matching if not surpassing that of the iPhone 5. That said, it might just be worth waiting. As cracking a blower as it is, the HTC One X+ is only an incremental update on the One X - and it’s clear a massive, full HD overhaul is on the way in the shape of the HTC J Butterfly.
Summary: HTC really puts the + in the One X+. The company took an already excellent Android smartphone and souped up the graphics and camera performance, quadrupled the amount of internal memory to 64GB, and increased its endurance by an hour. AT&T shoppers should also consider the Samsung Galaxy S III , which has more innovative software and sharing features but a dimmer screen. But for the moment, the HTC One X+ is the most powerful smartphone on AT&T.
Excerpt: Let’s see now… how do you talk about a phone that’s already been talked about so often that most details would just appear repetitive? The HTC One X, the first of its kind in the mobile kingdom, is slated to be the apparent game-changer in the new-age, high-speed, mobile arena. Loaded up with all the latest and “greatest” goodies that HTC could throw at you, the One X is aimed at the high-end mobile users who won’t settle for anything less than a great user experience...
Excerpt: Is an HTC One X by any other name just as sweet? In the case of the Evo 4G LTE, a slightly reconfigured sibling of the One X, no, not quite. But almost.
Pros: Black aluminum and plastic, with red anodized highlights producing a distinctively menacing looking phone. One of the best displays and cameras found in smartphones. Beastly power and speed. HTC Sense 4 isn’t as good as stock Android, but it’s the best alternative. Who doesn’t love kickstands?
Cons: It’s called the Evo 4G LTE, but Sprint’s 4G LTE network hasn’t launched yet. The protruding camera is begging to get scuffed and scratched over the life of a 2-year contract. The One X is a better-looking phone.
Conclusion: With the One XL hitting all the marks across performance, multimedia and interface, there’s very little going against it other than its price. On EE’s 4G network, the handset will set you back £46 per month and a £26 up front payment. If this sounds like a reasonable outlay for having the speediest web crawler out there, then you can purchase a One XL with confidence.
Pros: Fast mobile internet speeds, Great web performance, Gorgeous screen
Cons: Expensive, Non-expandable, Mediocre battery life
Conclusion: HTC have managed to deliver our favourite screen on any smartphone in the One X. The camera is also stunning, easy to use and captures great results as does the full HD video. That the HTC One X has a quad-core Tegra 3 processor means you're about as future-proofed as you're going to get should you pick one up. There's a big but however. The battery-life. With an 1800-mAH battery and a feature-set that screams "USE ME.
Pros: Class leading screen, Fantastic camera, Fast quad-core processor
Cons: Battery life is sub-par, A few stability issues, No removable battery
HTC One X review: Android 4 lands at AT&T with a big splash
20 June 2012
Excerpt: AT&T's new HTC One X phone is a slick device with clever features to go along with the new Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. One of the first things I noticed about the One X is the cool keyboard with keys that each have two characters. I've seen this before on another Android phone, running an older Android version, and thought it was a fantastic feature.
Conclusion: If I were a Sprint customer, this is the phone I'd buy. In terms of quality, materials, features and specs, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is the one to beat. Unless you prefer the pure Android experience that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus offers, the EVO 4G LTE is our choice, and we suspect it will hold up well against the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Pros: Great design and build, fast, excellent camera, Android 4.0 ICS.
