HTC One X+: Features, specs and Middle East release date
12 February 2014
Excerpt: As if your smartphone buying dilemma wasn't bad enough with the iPhone 5 , Nokia's Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 handset and the HTC 8X , the Taiwanese mobile maker has officially announced the One X+ as the latest member of its premium smartphone family. Set to take over the One X as HTC's flagship Android handset, we take a snapshot look at the features that might tempt the money out of your pocket for the HTC One X+.
Summary: Quad-core processing isn't everything, and AT&T's new $199.99 HTC One X proves it. This advanced Android has style, speed, blazing 4G, and power galore.
Pros: The futuristically-styled $199.99 HTC One X offers Android fans on AT&T plenty to like, such as a massive, bright 4.7-inch screen, blazing 4G LTE data speeds, a powerful camera, and zippy performance running Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.
Cons: Sadly, HTC One X owners can't claim quad-core bragging rights. Also, the nonremovable battery and lack of SD card slot weaken an otherwise incredible Android smartphone.
Summary: With the slight disclaimer that I have yet to use the Samsung Galaxy SIII, I have to say that I am fairly confident in saying that the HTC One X is the best Android device I have ever used. It takes the best industrial design I have seen in an Android device, and combines it with top-notch specs and the best version of HTC Sense yet, as well as an updated version of Android
Excerpt: In 2012, HTC finds itself in a defensive position. Apple continues to carve out a larger share of the smartphone market, and Samsung has stolen a lot of the momentum HTC gained in the last two years. Though it’s not part of the HTC “One” series of phones, the EVO 4G LTE is one of the new devices HTC hopes will turn users back in its favor with fast data speeds, hot specs and unique features like a kickstand. But is that enough?
Summary: If your original HTC EVO 4G is on life-support, and you’re looking to upgrade, look no further. Seriously. I’m not just saying that because I’m the Managing Editor of Good and EVO, either. This phone takes everything that’s awesome about the OG EVO and makes it about 1,000 times better.
Excerpt: The HTC One X is one of the best smartphones on the market, and the best Android phone you can buy right now, period. It’s fast, it’s gorgeous, it’s lightweight and it has a stellar battery that lasts all day. The camera is also outstanding. It’s the best I’ve seen on an Android phone, though it falls just short of the camera on the iPhone.
HTC One X Review: AT&T’s New Top Android Smartphone
14 May 2012
Excerpt: The One X is the new flagship Android smartphone from HTC and AT&T. It has a large display, runs the latest version of Google's Android OS, loads of other high-end[...
Pros: Great screen, Excellent overall performance, Great email experience, Fantastic web browsing experience, Great sound, especially if you use Beats headphones, Excellent camera
Cons: AT&T Ready2Go requires a computer for initial setup, White backplate grabs every speck of dust and dirt — be prepared to wipe it down a lot, The buttons are a little too small and hard to find, No Microsoft Office-compatible app included, Voices can be somewhat muffled due to overactive background noise cancellation, Battery meter is either possessed or not entirely accurate (though the battery is adequate to get you through the day).
Conclusion: I’ve always been a fan of Nokia phones. Back in the 1999 I remember how proud I was of my Cingular Wireless Nokia 5190. In 2012, Nokia no longer dominates the smartphone race and instead relies on Windows Phone to power it’s high-end devices. The good news is that Windows Phone is quite enjoyable and I consider it a nice mix of iOS simplicity and Android power. Unfortunately the number of top apps is limited and the future of Windows Phone is unclear.
Excerpt: HTC didn’t have a good 2011. It lost its strong footing on almost every carrier to competitors like Samsung, falling in a market that has shown enormous growth. The One series is an attempt to turn things around. With the One S and One X, HTC is on a mission to prove it has the skills to last in this fast-changing market and remain a relevant driving force in phones. Most of all, however, it’s trying to make better phones for you. Has it succeeded? Find out below.
Pros: Fantastic, thin design, Comfortable to hold, Amazing rear camera, Runs Android 4.0 (ICS), Beats Audio included, HTC Media Link HD is fun
Cons: Sense 4.0 UI is puzzling, Non-removable battery, No microSD
