The HTC One X is a beauty and a beast in the same breath.
The HTC One X is a smartphone behemoth in every way, teaming the highest-end specs, including a 4.7-inch Pureview panel and a quad core processor, and a unibody design that’s both sturdy in the hand and stunning to look at.
Among the highlights is a brawny 1.5GHz Tegra 3 ‘4-Plus-1’ chipset that comes with four main cores, plus a fifth Battery Saver core, making it a brilliantly balanced bit of kit for running powerful applications as well as performing simpler everyday tasks such as web browsing and checking emails.
This is made all the more impressive thanks to the capacious display, which is makes for a supremely pleasurable multimedia experience. Better still, as a flagship handset, the One X is also home to Beats by Dr Dre sonic smarts, bringing studio-quality sound on the move just as the artist intended.
And if that didn’t quench your thirst for tech, the eight-megapixel camera with a BSI sensor and dedicated HTC ImageChip enables ultra-fast snapping in under 0.7 seconds, and has a continuous burst mode that’s perfect for capturing fast-moving objects. It also records videos in full 1080p HD and sports built-in stabilisation to keep camera shakes in check.
There’s also a wide range of connectivity options on board, including NFC (Near Field Communications), which lets you make contactless payments and transfer data more easily, plus DLNA support for wirelessly streaming HD content to a compatible TV or computer.
Last but certainly not least, the HTC One X rocks the new Sense 4.0 bespoke interface, which has been completely overhauled for an even better and easier user experience than before.
