In quadrant: 1st time: 4785 - 2nd Time: 4565 3rd time: 4320 4th time: 5020.

In antutu: 1st time: 11152 - 2nd time: 10680 - 3rd time 10850.

So as you can see its a mixed result however in nenamark 2 i got 47.5 for 3 consecutive times. so i guess it gives a stable result. Those are the benchmarks i did the others i didn't test them as i don't find benchmarks reliable at all.

So as a person who owns a one x im just trying to be helpful with a truthful user experience i have had with this so that nobody gets confused.

Well as promised heres a short review of one X after using it for around 5 days.

Design: The design is the most eye catching of all the HTC devices that has been released of late so far. It has a certain WOW factor which impresses people its lightweight and slim and when u hold it in your hand it wont feel that much bigger then a 4.3 inch screen if you were comfortable with a 4.3 you wont notice much of a difference due the way htc made its design.

Display: The display is simply the best I've seen the colors are bright and crispy clear. even when you use it in the sunlight with 50% brightness you can clearly see the screen without difficulties. The viewing angles are excellent compared to others like the super amoled HTC has done a brilliant job compared to its previous phone displays. When u look at an iPhone 4s and this there wont be much of a difference but of course the iPhone display would look a bit more crispy due to it having a 3.5 inch screen more then an inch smaller then this phone.

Camera: The photos taken by this camera is on par with the iPhone 4s and its clearly better then the Nokia N9 and the galaxy nexus as somebody before me claimed the N9 camera was 10 times better its a total lie. It can can pictures real fast even while you doing a video you can still take a picture without interrupting it and its fast with no lags. There are a lot of features in the camera for you to experiment I'm not much of a camera person so i didn't do much with it.

Performance: After playing with it for 5 days even with 3-4 apps open in the background the phone runs smoothly without any lags all in all its as silky smooth as anything can get.

internet / Browser: Well lots of people complained about the browser but during my experience browsing the default browser using WiFi it was clearly fast and smooth the text dis-appearing when u zoom is not that much of big problem it takes less then a 1 second to re-appear people are just making a big deal out of it. and either way you can use any other browsers there are lots of them available in the market.

calling / messaging: The call quality has been improved alot in this phone and its quite clear when you are talking to someone in noisy places too but its not the best. The signal strength is also good but it cud be better. The messaging this time due to the change to the keyboard layout it might get sometime to get used to it but after a while you can type easily without making errors. And there are other keyboards you can download if u dont like this anyway.

battery life: The battery life is average with extensive use it will last around 7-8 hours. with medium and light usage it will last the whole day so its not bad and not impressive either right in middle.

Conclusion: HTC has made a very good job this time with one X they have created a phone with an impressive design and display that will appeal to anyone even the hardcore apple fans and samsung fans have to admit this looks stunning and feels really good to hold. The performance of the tegra 3 quad-core is the best it gives you a silky smooth performance that is second to none if you have used the previous HTC flagship phone you will notice this is twice as better then it. You wont be dissapointed buying this HTC gives good customer support and this is the best phone currently out in the market.

> In reply to Mista Calais @ 2012-04-12 00:38 from i2qL - click to readLol yeah right you are not a basher at all! everything u stated is false information the camera quality and the photos taken by this phone are on the same quality as the I phone 4s. and the galaxy nexus bit ? are u kidding its worse then this camera and the overall phone is worse 2. and as for the the phone lagging maybe u got a faulty device as nobody else got the lags and its silky smooth i have the ONE x and i have seen it and played with it myself don't believe this liar he stated that he wasn't a basher but all he did was that no + points or whatsoever totally biased towards the N9.

@HTC Users, How is HTC Location?

In HTC One S review, GSMArena mentioned "With HTC Locations you can download country maps for free". Can anyone tell me if its a HTC provided map or we can download google maps?

Also please tell me if HTC location will reroute automatically if I take a wrong turn?

Bought it Yesterday:
If i am not ofending other Brands, the worlds best built phones are as: 1 Apple 2 Htc 3 Nokia...... So the Built quality is Excellent. The g-glass is so beautifully curved on the sides. the LED is also tiny and unique. the speaker is splendid. the control keys at the bottom are very responsive. ANNND FINALLY THE DISPLAY LOL it stretches 4.7 is a wow... I wasnt going to be so interested when i heard about 4.7 i thought it might be bulky but when i noticed that its smaller in size than SG-Nexus and looks very less bigger than SONY X OR SG2 in real looks.
The camera is the best i have ever seen on a mobile... although the pictures taken by SONY X ARE BRILLIENT...OR IPONE4S OR SG2 ARE GREAT.
The software is great ... nice cool ringtones... wolrd clock... car mode!!! Excellent voice in call audio.... i havent noticed any big difference in speed whats tegra 3 or dual core i havent played many games though. but display and the glass really would be nice to play on. Yess the most important The battery is also good or average atleast better than sg2 and sony x my previous android phones.
PROBLEM'S
My First Product was faulty from the comapny got it replaced in 15 minute the volume up key wasnt working.
I have a problem with exchange sync, cant sink to my official mail. with sg2 or sony x it sinks with the same config/credentials.
Please Advise How can I get rid of the android green logo on call screen I've got 700 contacts so having their photos is out of questions... some are there in Afghanistan some are in Pakistan... some in europe and us lol + what about the numbers we call out of contacts.... i hate this green android face. and also tell me about some good games for the kids.
Suggestions:
i dont want to hurt you guys ;-) but its todays best android phone this is a race, a never ending race. Nothing is perfect in this world. I remember my sirrocco 8800 and i regret the way it was broken or i would be keeping it till this day!
Cheers and best Wishes from an Afghan.

> In reply to TC @ 2012-04-11 03:27 from 0TX% - click to readA beats equalizer is always the same as a preset equalizer made the company Beats itself, and the output sound will not fit on any genre because of this customization...any audio-enthusiast or audiophile knows that. Beats Audio's flaw is that it's only an equalizer!!!

If Beats Audio on HTC phones has an upgraded Digital-to-Analog chip that can manage to output a clean signal, then that's audio-quality sound. Also the headphones are so consumer-sound that people tend to know that they are "the best" headphones which in fact are rubbish compared to the sound of new headphones like V-Moda M80, Skullcandy Mixrs, House of Marley, Phiaton MS800 and even the old Audio-Technica M80. They schemingly trick consumers on their old technology of headphones in which the driver designs are obsolete and the beats software as an equalizer boosting bass. People should know that these Beats products are only for fashion accessories branding and nothing more.

So it's actually not a pro for this phone to have beats software, as it tends to dillute the consumer's brains to buy beats headphones, which is more expensive and impractical. It's a shame really on HTC as they created an excellent phone with a shady company beats is.

There is an optional function which the phone will turn to speaker phone automatically when the screen is facing down...the speaker produce a lot of loud echo. Speaker phone sound nice & clear in normal use.

Power key (on the top), should have never been placed on the same side as the volume rocker for such a large phone!

For me, it took too long to fully charge up an empty battery (approx. 3 hours).

I am interested in this and following it but am buying sgs3..I keep seeing allsorts of problems and wonder if its ICS at fault..I have never seen so many recalls and problems since 2003 with firmware than ICS is causing..If this HTC with quadcore is not smooth then its definetly coding at fault period,,if this had quadcore @ 2.0GHz and i bet it would still have problems.

These smartfones are so complex and have so much squeezed into a small space its a wonder they work at all.I think the One S is selling better round our area.
