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.
Conclusion: So does the HTC One X+ warrant your attention? It’s certainly not as snazzy as say the Google Nexus 4 or any of the recent Samsung lineup, but it’s still a decent Android phone that looks good and works fairly well. It’s not worth upgrading if you currently own the HTC One X, but apart from that it’s a decent Android phone that offers a great Jelly Bean experience.
Conclusion: A good thing just got better: with a faster processor, gobs of internal storage and a higher capacity battery, the HTC One X+ is an excellent evolutionary improvement over one of HTC's top phones, the One X. If you already own a One X that's not likely to sell you on an out of contract upgrade, but for those who are shopping for a new phone on contract, the One X+ holds up nicely against the top smartphones on AT&T.
Pros: Superb display, lovely design, comfy in hand, very fast.
Cons: Battery is sealed inside, no microSD card slot though you do get 64 gigs of internal storage.
Excerpt: What happens when you create an insanely nice device but it never really takes off? If you’re HTC, you try, try again. The HTC One X hit shelves before the Galaxy S3, iPhone 5, and almost every other major flagship phone, and was better than a lot of them, but it’s not always about who’s the best. The One X was quickly forgotten in favor of better advertised, better branded competition, but now it’s back.
Pros: Beautiful, vivid screen, 64GB of storage, Great camera, Durable, stylish design
Cons: Disappointing battery life, No microSD slot, Non-removable battery
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.
Pros: Long battery life, Amazing graphics performance, 64GB of internal memory, Thumping Beats Audio, Beautiful design, Fast and sharp camera
Cons: Weak built-in speakers, Phone is a bit large, Mediocre camera image quality
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.
Conclusion: The fantastically fast processor, 64GB of internal storage and superb screen are real highlights of the HTC One X+, and they’re enough to make me rate this handset slightly more highly than its predecessor. Still, the battery life will be an issue for many and while this phone is a worthy flagship handset for HTC, I’m not convinced it does enough to make it a hit.
