A look back review on the the existing HTC One X, prior to the upcoming release of the HTC One.
Should you or should you not get it?
Taiwanese Firm recreates the old HTC into a new birth. The HTC One X comes with a High Definition screen, excellent processor and explicit thin chassis.
Ever since HTC was purchased by One & Co, their phone designs evolved into a sleeker format which has genuinely applied to the HTC One X.
The HTC One X falls under the large-sized categories of phones. It has a stunning large screen size of 4.7 inches. Its 8.9 millimeter chassis integrates the 720p HD display. One X produces high quality videos and images as operated by the Super IPS LCD technology thereby bringing movies and games to life.
HTC One X displays a pixel density that rivals the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S however applied on a larger screen.
For such a large phone to use, One X is significantly lighter in weight, 130 grams considering its size. It is lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S3 and a bit heavier than the Galaxy S4. Surprisingly, HTC One X literally fits in the pocket.
There are quite minimal changes in the over-all design of the phone. At the top of this phone is a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. The volume rocker switch is situated at the right hand side. While, at the left part of this phone is where the micro-USB slot is placed. Also at the left section is a Mobile HD Link that can be easily connected to any LED or LCD TV.
The HTC One X is very thin in design but offers a lot in features. For those who are contented with a minimalist finish, the One X is certainly a good choice. This effect is defined by the presence of a micro-SIM hole at the rear portion of said phone, which needs to be opened by an Apple-esque device. The battery is embedded in the body. The micro-SD support is non-existent on this phone.
Since large games and HD movies can be played on the HTC One X, the lack of micro-SD slot is quite a worry. Apart from this, a smaller SIM can also cause annoyance to those who wish to upgrade from the full-size form.
HTC One X goes with a 32 GB storage just enough for the regular user. But, if it could be raised to 64GB, it can positively compete with its opponent.
An 8MP camera protrudes at the back of this phone. Although protruded, its curvy chassis keeps it intact when placed on the table.
The power button is quite difficult to hit especially if you have small hands. Nevertheless, you can still hit the button accurately unlike those present in some smartphones which takes time to turn on and off.
The focal point of the HTC One X is its large size, light weight, sleek-looking that is truly appealing to both men and women. It only seems to be a disadvantage to those with smaller hands.
It is worth noting that the white version of the HTC One X gets quite dirty in just a few hours. A phone case can just keep the surface clean.
