Indeed, it might not be perceived as the most premium constructed device we’ve seen from HTC, but nevertheless, it simply feels incredibly solid and fine to the touch.
by PhoneArena (May, 2012)
Much like the original HTC EVO 4G, the HTC One X is a remarkable evolutionary step up for the Taiwanese manufacturer.

Reviews Word on the street for the HTC One X


10.0
What's hot: Pretty much everything:fast new CPU, 720p display, beautiful design, LTE and Android 4.0 ICS.

8.1
Messaging: So, you're wondering if it's comfortable enough to type long emails and lots of texts out with the HTC One X. Well, let's say that typing is OK with the handset.

9.0
Some will irk you (7Digital is far too expensive in our eyes, and the Movie Editor does very little other than make a mess of your photos and videos) but there are other excellent choices like those we've listed above, and we think overall HTC has got the mix right.

8.5 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The blacks aren't as deep as those of the AMOLEDs out there, but still great in LCD terms.
by GSM Arena (Apr, 2012)
The Super LCD has natural and rich colors with neutral whites, which are pluses vs. Super AMOLED displays that have bluish whites and unnaturally vibrant colors (though many like those better than life colors).
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
Wow - colors are so true and accurate, and viewing angles are unbelievable (almost no distortion).
by Android Police (May, 2012)

Video

It does win for shooting very good quality 1080p video at 30 fps, and the myriad camera options are wonderful.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
The HTC One X brings the best processor, an HD screen and a sublimely thin chassis as the Taiwanese firm looks to recreate the success of the original Desire.

500156 fps70741617510251 fps70111825334633 fps536722372753N/A59852175Some of you love Beats Audio and some call it too bass-heavy.

Camera

The fast f 2.0 lens and backside illuminated sensor are particularly well suited to low light photography.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
Among the more important enhancements should be faster loading and focusing times, as well as overall better shots due to an f2.0 aperture and BSI sensor.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2012)
The rear camera is quite awesome, easily the best on any Android phone today.
by Android Police (May, 2012)

Battery

In short, it's an easy one to work out: the combination of that large HD screen, with the multitude of pixels needing power to work, and the Tegra 3 processor are sucking the life out of the battery at a fairly accelerated rate.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2012)
This is very atypical usage - but we believe that if a phone has something worth doing, then the battery should hold up.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2012)
Even with this, I was able to unplug the One X at 12PM on a Friday, and have it last me all the way until 3PM the next day with a few solid hours of heavy usage - that's over 24 hours.
by Android Police (May, 2012)

Apps

In case you've forgotten, HTC includes 23GB of additional Dropbox space (for 2 years) on all of their Android phones, which is a definite plus, and getting this extra space is made very easy - just sign into the app and click on a confirmation email.
by Android Police (May, 2012)
The smartphone's weakest point will undoubtedly be the limited amount of built-in memory - it's non-expandable and 13 gigs worth of storage are not too likely to cut it for heavy users these days, considering the fact that graphic intensive video games easily hit the 700MB download mark.
by GSM Arena (May, 2012)
The Music app automatically got album art for our tracks and we like the rich interface and background playback feature.
