I want to give a honest opinion to 'Would be Buyer' for HTC OneX.
This is a absolute gorgeous phone with good curve and light weight and tough casing body compare to S3.
Good connections and beautiful screen BUT...
The Battery is a definitely draw back unless you charge them with a portable juice pack or in the office because it won't last for a whole day unless you don't switch on the wifi too surf web too much. (More then half an hour used will drain your battery by 20-30 percent!)
Music play is surprisingly not battery draining.
-Most of the battery draining goes to the screen almost more then 50% when I switch to "Auto" brightness mode.
It's a stable phone with good reception and fantastic music output. (The HTC headset was of much better quality compare to the iphone supply headset)
Overall it will be down to your preference but coming from a hand-on owner I would say not a KILLER phone.
-Suggestion: If you are own a Samsung S2 or Note or even a iphone it won't be a much upgrade at all. I would say wait for Samsung Note 2 or iphone to release and see the Review.
Samsung Galaxy S2 is the Best Phone Ever in the Market .// Went to Buy S3 and oneX but S2 rocks in all fields . S2 replaced with 2100 mah Battery is just an Extreme Machine and has no competitors around . Galaxy S2 Wow.....
The Champ Is Here
The HTC One X is one of the best smartphones on the market, and the best Android phone you can buy right now, period.
Itís fast, itís gorgeous, itís lightweight and it has a stellar battery that lasts all day. The camera is also outstanding. Itís the best Iíve seen on an Android phone, though it falls just short of the camera on the iPhone 4S.
Itís not just the hardware ó the One X runs version 4.0 of Android, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, which is overlaid by HTCís own Sense skin. Itís fast and easy to use. Combine that with the excellent hardware and youíve got a handset worthy of being a flagship device for both HTC and AT&T (even though you might have to wait a bit to get one)
In fact, the one thing I really donít like about the One X is its exclusivity to AT&T, the only carrier that sells the phone in the U.S. Itís a shame this phone isnít available on T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.
Android handset makers donít have the same leverage as Apple when it comes to dealing with telecommunications companies, so they continue to pump out a few slightly different versions of every phone, each one exclusive to a different carrier. Itís unnecessary and insane ó HTC produced more than 50 different handsets last year alone.
The One X, being a stellar phone, serves as a testament that Android handset makers should go the iPhone route and make fewer phones of higher quality available through multiple carriers. The hardware companies would of course gain from this, but the payoff for the consumer would be huge as well.
To wit: Nearly every quibble I had with the T-Mobile-exclusive One S ó a fine mid-range handset being sold at a flagship price ó was fixed in the One X.
My biggest complaint with the One S was its display, and the feature I enjoyed most on the One X was ó you guessed it ó the display.
The One X has a 4.7-inch, 1280×720 IPS LCD touchscreen, covered in Corningís durable, crystal-clear Gorilla Glass. The viewing angles on the screen are some of the best Iíve seen on a smartphone. Colors are bright and accurate, producing consistently true-to-life images across websites and apps. Pixel edges are indistinguishable with the displayís density of 316 pixels per inch.
Let me put it this way: The One Xís screen is on the same level as the iPhoneís Retina display. I love looking at it, and it blows away the PenTile displays found on the One S and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (my former favorite Android handset).
Beneath the fantastic touchscreen, the One X is a beast, with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (the same set-up found in the One S). Performance is blazing-fast, and though the AT&T handset doesnít pack the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor found in Europe and Asiaís One X, it doesnít feel any less capable. The U.S. model is just as good and just as impressive as what HTC is offering overseas.
The U.S. version of the One X, unlike its overseas counterpart, runs on AT&Tís 4G LTE network, which is only available in a small number of cities right now. In San Francisco, the One X downloaded and uploaded data quickly, whether connected to AT&Tís 4G LTE, 4G HSPA+ or 3G service.
But despite performing like a beast, the One X is also a beauty.
The 0.36-inch chassis is made of a single piece of polycarbonate, giving the handset a sophisticated look free of seams or gaps, as seen on past HTC hardware. Given its size, the phone is also surprisingly light, weighing in at 4.6 ounces.
jay, 17 Jul 2012is true the One X takes very poor pics at night compared to s3?One X has better lens to film/shoot at night
The following page is for serious HTC One X lovers, who love their phone very much but very much concerned about the battery, whether performing well or not, pls chk:
parrysingh, 16 Jul 2012Regarding the Battery:
As all now these are battery hungry devices, so I had bought Juice def... moreThanks a lot for your reply.
I'm keeping my HOX because the battery and heating problem is only software and not hardware issue. It doesn't overheat when browsing the internet for more than 1 hour or so, also when playing temple run and frontline commando - it does get warm though. It will be fixed with the next update which will be available soon, people in XDA is talking about it already.
s.yawar, 16 Jul 2012u r using it? and also i like to tell u that im texting 24hour...now u knw everything about m... moreYes I am using it, and I use it mostly for calls and e-mails, then net, facebook on WiFi, gaming and also some music while surfing or gaming. It consumes only 6 to 8% per hour on an average. If you text in English then this set will give you the most satisfaction with its big keyboard and auto intelligent input which goes on correcting mistakes instantly. You better use this set, if any of your known person owns it.
parrysingh, 16 Jul 2012If you are a moderate user, you can plug this beast in the night and again, next evening, if ... moreu r using it? and also i like to tell u that im texting 24hour...now u knw everything about my use.....so it can last how many hours?
Ans both questions
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2012i had battery problems whith my one x also, rather it was overheating or just the poor battery... moreI agree with you. My One X is not as good as my SGS3, except the UI. Camera definitely not as good as the SGS3, and the worst thing is the very unstable battery life!...after using my One X for way over 3 months, I'm still unable to estimate how much battery I'll have left after using it for 2-3 hours or whatever time. This is not a good feeling; not at all, because I don't feel comfortable, and always have to worry about how much battery I have left, so I charge my One X whenever & wherever I can. No such issue with my SGS3 which I brought 3 weeks ago.
I also never have the same unstable battery issue with my previous Sony Xperia ARC; which I traded-in for the One X.
s.yawar, 16 Jul 2012my use ix like camera,texting,music(lil bit), and browsing ? so how it can last?If you are a moderate user, you can plug this beast in the night and again, next evening, if u charge it in the next noon it will go till midnight smoothly... Normally it goes for the whole day.

s.yawar, 16 Jul 2012i didn't buy yet....i'll buy ...but im confused about battery and overheatingIf thephone is in normal usewithoutplaying gamesor calling for long time,the temperature should be around 37°C or 38°C. But if you useyour phoneto play games or surfing internet for a long time, it will be normal that the temperature rises to around 55°C.ď, official statement from HTC.
