TechSpot: HTC One X Review - Quad-Core Power, Looks to Spare

Many in the industry believe that HTC, which was once most beloved among Android fans, has fallen from grace. That the company has lost its way, its edge. I am here to tell you that those people are wrong. I offer as evidence the new HTC One X.

The One X, the company's new flagship Android smartphone, is the kind of phone that just leaves you breathless. Its single-piece polycarbonate body is unique in the Android world, and it is as comfortable to hold as it is drop dead gorgeous. The X's 720p resolution touchscreen display is just as attractive and functional as it is expansive, measuring 4.7 inches across the diagonal.

The One X's two marquee features, however, are likely its Android 4 OS with the new Sense 4 user interface and the phone's powerful NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, which has 4 processing cores that can run at speeds of up to 1.5GHz. The real world impact of a quad-core processor might be negligible for most tasks, but there's no denying that the marketing appeal it offers is great.

I like it but the video on the verge put the iPhone 4 on top of it and it's just to big. I wouldn't like to carry that around in my pocket.

Well don't wear girl jeans

Awesome, I'll put my normal jeans on and carry my netbook in my pocket. Great functionality! Fast processor! Everything I want in a phone. Soon we will be carrying our 47inch tvs around. Just for the heck of it!

Haha, no seriously.
I used to like their heavy metal and rounded edges. Now they just keep pumping out the same design. It makes me sick

Does anyone know what the name of this phone will be when it hits VZW ? I was really excited about this and I found out VZW wont carry it but could possible change the name?

Droid One?
The Evo One was outed for Sprint.

I'd have to say that's probably the best looking HTC phone I've seen, except for the camera area. I think it's a bad idea to have the phone resting on the camera lens.

I hate phones like these, quad core is just going to be used for promotion and doesn't improve the product at all. It will probably just decrease the battery life and the device would be better off with a single core.

Nice that they've adopted Nokia's design with a different polycarbonate shape.

Expect Nokia still thinks its 1999. no one expect .1% of people buy their phones anymore.

no matter how hard HTC tries all their phones still look the same. Theres just no difference in design at all. Who wants a phone with good specs if it still looks like an onld htc desire I have in my cupboard.

I just left Samsung and refuse to buy another phone from them. Samsung is making their phone paper thin with plastic covers and their antenna quality on phones suck. I have returned to Htc and plan on staying there. Htc makes phones that are of good quality and durable. It takes forever for Samsung to come out with an OS update also. Htc is the first phone on At&t to get the ICS while Samsung Infuse 4G is sitting on Froyo, all 2 Samsung Galaxys or still waiting on ICS, and the Samsung Galaxy Note will have to wait to almost the end of the year for an ICS update. All of these phones have the same design and the same look which is really getting tired.

Impressive.

Does that mean this phone is more powerful than my duo core processor laptop?


Why would you say that? What is the clock speed of your laptop?
