I was all set for a bit of a rant about how you were late to the party with this review but I find that I can't really.
Sure, it has been out a few months now but this highlights a key reason as to why HTC isn't doing as well against Samsung as it should be - it might release first but it never seems to have anything that is better than the Samsung handsets. Which is a shame because the software is better and I found that the One X is actually quicker than the S3 in real world tests. Definitely more attractive as well.
Anyway, back to my point - HTC should have tried to max out the One X's specs in the first place, it should have had the option of 64GB from the get go to give it some traction, and the bigger battery shouldn't have been a revision, it should have been there from the off. It's these small increments that piss people off as HTC just supersede a 6 month old handset with a revised version. Samsung doesn't do this and they have it right in that respect.
What HTC does have going for it is that (in this readers opinion) they make the best hardware of any of the Android handset manufacturers and it looks like they might be about to nail it with the M7 - they just need to wait a year before they release it's replacement, in the mean time they could make a mid ranged phone with 4" screen, quad core, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, 720p screen and have the middle market falling over themselves to buy the damn thing.
Can somebody please confirm this: Is the camera hidden behind glass or plastic? As far as I remember the original X One's camera was covered by plastic which in my opinion is completely ridiculous - especially for a premium smartphone. Hell, even if it was an entry-level phone it wouldn't be OK to use plastic.
I think HTC battery is not good, sometimes it got hot itself. do it happend to ONE X? I would not buy it if it have same problem.
it is just 4 months, htc one x+ charging is not happening. and internet settings are right but still is not working.. is this any more pathetic situation..
Is the HTC ONE X16GB upgradable to 32GB?
Pls can i upgrade ma android software for htc one x+ to that of htc one and how please
Not to Hate but Samsung has better life than any of the HTC devices I have ever used. lol.... true story.. HTC needs to work on the important things to consumers. This would be going back to removable batteries and SD cards and sd card slots... oh and by the way they are losing money (HTC)....while Samsung is making ton of profits (they also have sd cards too....unlike HTC)...HTC is going broke and Samsung is getting rich.... HTC take a damn hint already
