Even though the HTC One X has been a “star” on our blog and pretty much everywhere else ever since it has been announced by HTC at this year’s Mobile World Congress, a lot of people have postponed actually buying this handset mainly because of the hype that surrounded the Samsung Galaxy S3.
But now that the mythical S3 has been unveiled, and everybody saw that it’s an earthly handset (really powerful and with interesting features but nowhere near the wonder that some rumors made it up to be) people are wondering if they should give HTC One X a fair shot. And honestly everybody should, especially if the screen is really important to you (Super LCD 2 is said to offer a slightly better experience than S3′s Super AMOLED HD) or if you prefer X’s matte over S3′s glamorous design.
To end this introduction, 2012 seems to be one hell of a year for HTC as the manufacturer has entered the market with some excellent choices for any budget out there. So let’s get started with the HTC One X Essentials Guide.
HTC One X
HTC’s One X is shipping with a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 HD display with Gorilla Glass. The processor powering the device in most regions is the 1.5GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3. You also get 1 GB of RAM thrown into the mix and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0.
For storage the device goes up to 32GB and the juice powering all the components is provided by a 1,800mAh battery (non-removable). The HTC One X comes also with Beats audio integration, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with an F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens.
With all of this hardware you would think that the HTC One X is a monster in size, however it’s only 8.9mm in thickness.
In US, the HTC One X is available at AT&T. However since the Tegra 3 CPU does not get along with 4G LTE the manufacturer has brought some pretty important changes to the handset. Check out the AT&T HTC One X Overview for more details.
If you’re with Sprint and you’d like to feast your eyes on that beautiful Super LCD 2 screen you’ll be happy to know that you’ll find that in the HTC Evo 4G LTE (another modified version of the HTC One X).
