Right in time for rescue HTC, after a big disappointment with Galaxy Note, I was somehow stuck between the iPhone 5 and the Note II, both of which I disliked, now will definitely get this to continue the legacy of my HD2 with great camera and sound quality.
Make it quick HTC.

The bezel seems to be wonderfully small. I like that

If your phone is great, reliable & high quality, then you don't even have to make big change.

This is the reason why iPhone 5 looks quite similar like its predecessor iPhone4S.

However, it's still 1 of d best mobile processors 2 be ever released till date! Perhaps this paves d way 4 Samsung n others 2 come with quad core A-15 parts in d next year in the likes of Galaxy S4 n other devices 2 b launched in 2013-14. Personally tho i wud much prefer seeing Big. Little architecture wich uses at least 2 A-15 cores n 2 ultra efficient A-7 cores in d new flagship phones! The Big.Little approach provides d ideal blend of power n battery-efficiency n i believe it's the future of SOC design! D nxt few years r really exciting if ur a tech geek! Can't wait...

i am now confused! so confused! i liked the Samsung Note 2 before and when the Optimus G came out, the darn phone took my attention and now this One X5 by HTC was leaked and i can't wait to take a look at its specs and take a look at its reviews! if this runs S4 Pro Krait quad core and hope the GPU is an Adreno 320 which is like the Optimus G then, i might end up getting this in December! the only downfall of the LG's Optimus G is the fact that it doesn't have a card slot. i want a local storage more than a cloud. well, i guess if this picture of the One X5 is really true, then HTC and LG will top the game this year up until 2013 i bet! ^^
