Saw the HTC One X earlier at an HTC shop and couldn’t help but try it out.
The HTC One X is a quad-core phone with a 4.7-inch display. I’ve been using the HTC Sensation for a long time and the bigger HTC One X doesn’t feel that big for a phone for me.
I love the full Gorilla Glass display with tapered edges on this one, a direct contrast of the recessed glass on the Sensation line. Just like other premium HTC phones, the back is made of a single unibody shell, this time with a light polycarbonate material. The front part has a glossy plastic finish while the back has a matte finish with the lens protruding prominently from the top center.
The design will force you to quickly coat this phone with a case. Lying it face down will put the screen in direct contact to the surface and lying it face up will smudge the dirt-attracting finish of its back (unless you pick the black color), not to mention possibly damaging the edges of the lens.
As common to Android 4.0 devices, the dedicated Android buttons on the HTC One X are reduced to three: Back, Home, and Task bar, they removed the ever helpful Menu and the useless Search button.
The phone performs as advertised. I really like the high 1280 x 720 resolution on it’s Super LCD 4.7-inch screen. For the record, I prefer SLCD over Super AMOLED ones due to correct color representation. The Tegra 3 1.5GHz quad-core processor feels spiffy on the phone. Playing Temple Run, which is ghastly laggy on the Sensation, runs very smooth here.
I wasn’t able to copy photos taken from its camera but taking photos is fast and even turning the camera on is quite fast. The phone also has Beats Audio enhancement inside but they made it universal this time around meaning other apps can also use it.
The HTC One X is now available for a cool Php32,990.
