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, ...
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.
Pros: Slick design, Huge internal storage, Very powerful
Cons: Jelly Bean notifications absent, Pre-installed apps not always useful, No LTE in UK variant
Summary: When released, the HTC One X was about as powerful a handset as you could get with a power packed processor and an awesome camera.

Conclusion: VERDICT If you’re an Android fan, the HTC One X+ is one of the best smartphones on sale right now. It also feels like a placeholder, that HTC is treading water while it waits for its new high end models. All signs point to this having a short stay at the top.
Pros: + Stunning display, + Beautiful design, + Android 4.1 + HTC Sense works well, + Expertly designed camera app

Pros: Great screen, Improved Sense overlay, Fast processor, Excellent keyboard, The design may not be any different, but we like that as the One X+ is still a handsome looking handset, with the unibody design exuding a premium air or superiority which can only really be toppled by the iPhone 5 .

Cons: Battery still not great, Incremental upgrade, No expandable storage, Once again battery life has let HTC down. The One X+ sports a bigger battery than the original, but it still seemed to struggle to see out a whole day, even with moderate usage. It's a real shame as the HTC One X+ could have bee...
Conclusion: Is it substantially better than the HTC One X? While many of the key elements of the phone are the same, it's the battery that makes the biggest difference to us. It was the weakest element of the previous device and it's now a better performer.
Pros: Glorious display, great finish and build quality, oozes power, software tweaks, front camera is impressive, higher-capacity battery and increased storage complete the package
Cons: LED notification is of little use, that's about it
