Review: HTC One X

After facing difficult times, HTC bounced back by climbing onto the top rung of the ladder in the Android market after releasing the HTC One X handset. The company is finally showing some impressive branding with this handset that has a gorgeous design. HTC One X is termed as HTC’s ‘comeback device’.

The unibody is made of polycarbonate that doesn’t interfere with the signal transmission. It showcases a brilliant 4.7 inch display screen and is considerably lighter than all the other handsets that HTC has released. The placement of all the ports, buttons and five-pin connector on the unibody is impressive and they are solid and responsive.

84 individual drilled holes makes up the speaker grill and it broadcasts all sound brilliantly and quite loudly. The phone comes with 26GB of accessible memory out of the 32GB that it offers and it runs on NVIDIA quad-core processor. Along with all this, HTC has introduced the Android Beam facility as well.

The One X houses a new Super LCD 2 panel and offers 316ppi of pixel density, thus putting all the other Android devices to shame. The viewing angles off the Gorilla Glass are great and the colours seem more vibrant here than on the other AMOLED devices.

The camera is positioned on the centre of the phone. It runs on the software, ImageSense, and supports a bagful of features. 8 megapixel images can be captured widescreen and HTC has made it possible to even capture HD frames from existing videos. The camera also offers variety of Instagram type filters.

The quad-core processor handles almost every task given quite effortlessly. However, the battery life of One X doesn’t look that promising. It gave up to 12 hours of battery backup for moderate use that involved all the regular tasks and activities.

The phone runs on the latest HTC’s proprietary skin version called Sense 4 that surpasses Android 4.0.3. With all these features and the brilliant software usage, HTC One X can be termed as a masterpiece.
