Summary: We thank for the quick and smooth deployment of the testing sample. We won't waste too much time in describing the appearance; this iteration mostly keeps it on the lines of its predecessor. Minor updates, such as the red button or the red ring around the camera are negligible, but quite nice to look at. But also in the remaining spec sheet there is nothing that would make an update really worthwhile for a previous owner of the One X.
HTC One X+ review: It’s back, and it’s a bit different
8 March 2014
Conclusion: Overall, the HTC One X+ is a good, good phone. It builds well on the power of the HTC One X and looks to iron out the bugs with the improved battery life and Android 4.1 on board too. It’s still got the same decent design and upgraded storage to 64GB is more than most will ever need, even with a strong HD video library and too many music tracks. The display is clear and crisp, and the 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 screen is excellent under the touch as well.
Summary: The HTC One X+ is a slight upgrade on the HTC One X, the flagship device that was top of the class until the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5 came along. But is the plus factor strong enough to make HTC the critics’ darling once more?
Summary: An incremental update of the existing One X, HTC’s latest handset certainly isn’t wanting for raw power, but the problem of battery stamina remains. Compared to the competition, the One X+ makes less of a splash than its predecessor did.
Pros: Large screen; fast processor; massive internal storage.
Cons: Battery life is poor; screen has flex issues.
Summary: Although HTC has officially launched the One X+ at Rs.40,190, we’re yet to see it in online stores. Seeing how this is the MRP of the device, we expect the street price to be a little less at around Rs.38,000. Compared to the old phone, which still retails for Rs.35,000, the One X+ is definitely a worthy successor.
Summary: You might wonder, at any time, what exactly is the point of the HTC One X+. This is essentially the souped-up version of one of the most impressive and excellent Android device of 2012, and you might wonder if it has right the wrongs it had. Well, in a sense, perhaps it did. Design-wise, this is the exact same phone as the HTC One X, and that’s not a bad thing.
Summary: With the HTC One now official after months of speculation , it is time to see how much HTC has evolved over the past year, and exactly how much did HTC’s One line has evolved since its most recent member has been released. Some may argue that a much better suited comparison would pit the HTC One against the HTC Droid DNA, but don’t worry, we’ve also got you covered if that is the case .
Summary: Facelift. HTC re-engineered their One X, packing their current top model, the One X+, with a few more horsepower and a bigger tank under the hood. But those aren't the only renovations. A run on our rugged test track shows what else is inside and how the revisions have altered the device.
Pros: Attractive design & case, 64 GB internal storage space (net ~55 GB), 25 GB Dropbox storage space (2 years), NFC, Android 4.1 with HTC Sense UI 4+, Strong wireless module, Camera module (8 megapixel, video recording in 1080p, LED flash), High resolution SLCD2 IPS touchscreen with good luminosity, Precise and quick input devices, Strong application and graphics performance, Low power requirements, The Tegra 3+ processor's performance, the intuitive HTC Sense user interf...
Cons: Missing LTE support, No card reader for storage expansion, Stereo headset with unimpressive sound, Power button's reaction somewhat unclear, In the new top model we would like to have seen LTE and a card reader at long last.
Conclusion: The HTC One X+ is in one way what the original should have been - a phone that can last a whole day. That it’s also been souped up with more speed, memory and style only adds to what is without a doubt the best HTC Android device out right now. For many, it will also be the best phone available, bettering the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in terms of style, offering more portability and stability than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and more versatility than the iPhone 5.
Pros: Slick design, Huge internal storage, Very powerful
Cons: Jelly Bean notifications absent, Pre-installed apps not always useful, No LTE in UK variant
Conclusion: Since I picked the One X as the best Android smartphone, the assumption is that the One X+ has to be the new king. Well kind of. If you’re on AT&T, it’s by far the best phone, but I do consider the DROID DNA a better phone. That one happens to be on my carrier of choice (Verizon) and I own it. If I were an AT&T customer, I would be all over the One X+. Now with that said, if you already own the One X, I wouldn’t upgrade at this time.
