What You Need to Know
The HTC One X has a great design, and we're finally seeing something different from the typical black plastic smartphones.
The body has a matte finish that feels really good in you hand.
The smartphone has pretty much the same size specs as the Galaxy Nexus.
The buttons are really simple: there's a power button on the top and a volume rocker on the side.
All the other buttons are capacitive.
The rear camera really sticks out in this design, and there's a front facing camera as well.
We feel like a lot of work went into making this phone look different from the rest, and we think the effort paid off.
The HTC One X packs a lot of power with a dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android's Ice Cream Sandwich OS version.
This phone is very fast with little to no Android lag.
We compared the HTC One X with the Droid RAZR Maxx and it was noticeably faster.
The smartphone also runs HC's latest skin, the Sense 4.0.
Sense is one of the very few things that we didn't love.
It's pretty much the same with improvements like the home screen customization and a new app switcher.
We just prefer the stock Android that we loved on the Galaxy Nexus.
Sense 4.0 felt like bloatware on a phone.
Overall, we liked using this phone a lot.
The HTC One X has an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video.
We don't think anyone would be disappointed with the photos but it's just not on pair with the great cameras we see on smartphones like the iPhone 4S and the Nexus.
The 1080p video looked pretty good but not on part with the elite smartphones.
The battery life was pretty good and we got a full day of heavy use out of it.
It doesn't have the best battery life but we think that's because of the screen.
The screen is pretty amazing so we think it's an alright compromise.
We tested the AT&T 4G LTE model which has a bigger battery to compensate for the LTE hardware.
