2011 was not a good year for HTC as majority of the handsets that were introduced by the manufacturer failed to create an impact in the market and thus it lost a huge market share to its competitors. However, with its “One” series, HTC is once again looking to regain its lost ground. Two of its handsets, HTC One S and One X, are designed keeping this aim in mind and both of them are performing well in sales.
HTC One X is slightly bigger than One S, yet the overall design of the phone is being liked by the users. The design of the phone is said to be inspired from Droid Razr. It’s just 9.1 mm thick and thus very easy to carry in hand. One X uses a Super LCD screen which is considered as an upgraded version of AMOLED technology. The 4.3 inch screen has got a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass provide the necessary strength and durability to the screen and protects it’s from smudges and scratches. HTC One X runs on the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Majority of the features of Android 4.0 remain intact in the phone, however small modification is done to OS with “Sense 4.0”, in order to make the phone appear more like Android version 2.3 phones.
As far as pre-installed apps in this phone are concerned, HTC has tried to make the phone more useful by introducing a wide range of apps in this phone including weather update, task manager, notes etc. There are around 40 pre-installed apps in the phone as compared to just 20 in case of One S.
This device is powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor that runs of 1GB of RAM. You will also find 16GB internal memory in this phone. Some common features of HTC One X includes digital compass, Wi-Fi, Micros USD and Bluetooth 4.0. However, memory card slot is missing in the phone.
The 8 MP camera of HTC One X is capable of producing some superb pictures using the “Image Sense” technology. The battery of One X is much better than other similar phones. If you use it moderately, then it will last to up to two days on a single charge. HTC claims that it provides you with 8.4 hours of talk time and a standby time of whopping 13 days. Since the battery is sealed, you cannot take it out of the phone.
