HTC is losing money fast. Unexciting technology coupled with poor after-sales support helps in lowering its profits. HTC Onex X is a real disppointment, good on paper but mediocre at best with poor battery life, average camera, buggy software, etc.

Who wants to buy another overpriced phone from the Taiwan manufacturer? Not me coz there are better options out there even dual-core ones.

Would you guys please stop bitchin´ about the battery life. I had the S2 and it had the worst battery life I have ever seen on a smartphone. Not to mention when it was restarted it was using about 20% of the battery life. I had the ONE X for a week now and I have never plugged it to be charged during the day although I listen like an hour of music and the screen is on for at least 2 hours.

WTF. I get a full day and a half out of my One x so not sure what everyone is moaning about. My IP4s barely lasts a day and ditto my Xperia S (great phone and the battery being its only flaw)! I reckon some people just like complaining.

This only reinforces the lack of nVidia, she
really thinks we are idiots, I'm still stuck with
the Tegra 2, with respect to the CPU and
GPU performance, power consumption and
support for updates, especially the support
that we have been left with the Tegra 2, do
not buy nVidia devices, especially in the
Tegra line!

the guy with the g1 being dissapointed with the new one X id ridiculus. g1 had to be recharged 4 times a day. and one hour screen time to 50% battery is not little dude,on any phone let alone on one with a 4.7" screen. and i bet you didnt tone down the brightnes and gps wifi sync and background data are on all the one, what the hell do you expect

I've found out its not just the battery and the screen hog... It's also the ram usage... mine usually stays at 750mb used, unless I clear it from the task manager... That clears away an additional 50MB... However, if I press the button again (please investigate, @GSMArena) it clears another additional 150MB-200MB... This means that the phone could survive at 400MBs!!

HTC's main issue is almost always batter life then followed by sub-par build quality, thats been the case since then till now!

Two screenshots to see how the battery fares after some time. With the update it's going to be even better ;)

This is a great phone but I won't buy it just because the battery. It's obvious with 1800mAh you'll get nothing special with regard to battery life compared to the last year's models. And I don't care it's more powerful. I need a phone that lasts a day with heavy usage. And HTC did nothing to deliver this functionality. Why didn't they just put a 2000-2200 mAh battery?

If we asked the users:
Would you like this phone as it is today or you'd rather buy a 2 mm thicker version with 2200 mAh battery? I think the answer would be obvious but the manufacturers seem to ignore it.

Had the One X for 3 days now. Amazing screen, but the battery is bad beyond belief. Left the house at 11am today with the phone fully charged. 5 hours later down to 49% after very light use. 1 hour screen time max. I love HTC phones but if there isn't a better fix than 10-20% then this is the last one I'm having, after owning a HTC since the G1 that's big disappointment.
