HTC One X+ review: The complete package

HTC One X+ review: The complete package - read the full textThere's no denying that the HTC One X was an amazingly solid smartphone. On the surface it even looked like as good a package as its main rival at the time, the Galaxy S III, and having a head-start to the market it was almost expected for it to become a huge success...


Sort by:

It is totally irrelevant what you HTC fanboys write ("I don't see no microSD card and unremovable battery as con" and similar). People vote with their wallets, and HTC is going downhill very fast. Let they just continue ignore what people want. Android is not iPhone, but HTC thinks it is, so they'll continue to lose money faster and faster.

i can not understand why lack of a micro sd card is a con i mean most phone have 8/16/32 GB internal and with sd card + 32GB which makes it 40/48/64 GB so 64 GB should be more than enoughso you dont really need that micro sd....

i think this phone is good overall just the lag at the camera kind of sucks but i didnt get if this is a software lag or hardware

any way looking forward to a battery test

The HTC One X+ is a step in the right direction, but it still has some way to go IMO to match up to the S3. The Quad core Tegra chip is an excellent processor and many will find the handset more than sufficient for whatever their needs might be. I just checked out the videos on Youtube for the HTC One X+, and there are loads, but one talking frog made me laugh,, its lighthearted and silly.

"with the invention of wi-fi you don't have to use micro sd...for what? 32gb is not enough?wi-fi has great speed on one x,i uploaded to dropbox in 5 minutes,about 25gb,"

so, basically, you got a 800Mbps wi-fi ... riiiiight

(I do belive that you intended to say something else, but failed at punctuation)

@HOX+ : for those having a good handset it would be rather idiotic to spend another 600Euro/$ on a slightly better one when in 6 month time there will be a refreshed new line of flagship devices featuring Tegra4 and Exynos5 (and probably OMAP5)... not to mention better GPUs and 1080 screens

... those who don't own a 2012 flagship device are better off with the Nexus4 (even at the ultra-inflated pricess that are rummored for countries without GooglePlayStore availability on hardware...)

Just because you are a hard core HTC fanboy doesn't make No MicroSD right thing... OKAY?
Most of HD Games require at least from 1-3 GB and 9MM HD goes for 4350 MB.
Plus Navigation + Work files and video presentation + Home videos + TV Shows/Movies "Of course after you buy them and I'm not taking about pirated version because it called a crime".
So here you go you will need at least 70-90 GB.
And BTW some people manage to use their phones more than their laptop and now I'm one of them because its so much of a relief.

I have the One XL (LTE 4G 1800MHz) and its a qualcomm S4 dual core CPU with andreno 225 GPU / SNAPDRAGON chipset with 1GB ram and while its a great smartphone due to the awesome SCLD2 IPS screen it will be the last HTC I buy probably due to the awful Sense UI, Sense really does suck and its a ram hog even with the new Sense 4.1.

While 4G is great and all that I dont really need it and as such will be selling the One XL to get the Nexus4 , onboard end user space is not an issue either on my end .... I would rather the pure Android experience with good quality hardware and I have owned LG'S that have gone the distance in terms of being useful.

HTC is mimicking Samsung or what? They are releasing same phone over and over again.

with the invention of wi-fi you don't have to use micro sd...for what? 32gb is not enough?wi-fi has great speed on one x,i uploaded to dropbox in 5 minutes,about 25gb, you don't even tried a phone like this.and regarding battery...for what to be removable?to put a cheap,with''higher capacity''one?it last a full day long,and i'm very happy with it.not even an iphone user said nothing about battery,and iphones are seald it is not an solid argument.

Seen the video reviews and some videos comparing to original HTC One X (which I also own, the international version).

The performance improvement isn't that big. Lag is still there (though it's less visible compared to the original X), the camera is still the same, etc etc.
One thing that I think it's a good improvement is the battery life. 2100mah vs 1850mah seems not that much, but in real life, the improvement can be seen.

IMO, HTC should release HTC One X with this spec (esp. the battery) at the very beginning. One X+ isn't a successor, but only a improvement version. Like the new iPad 4 which replacing the "not so old" iPad 3 (sorry, I have to bring this brand here) with new front facing camera and new processor which claims 2x performance.

As One X owner, I don't see any good reason why I should upgrade to this "Plus" version.

Looks like a very capable phone. Agreed with the review. The price would be the decision maker. Had it have similar price as SGS III, I'd definitely pick up HTC One X+

Class 4 and below will be too slow to take in that amount of data simultaneously. Especially when one records in full HD.

I find myself in that category. I need lots of space. True 32 in-built memory is sufficient for now, but an SD slot would have really been a definite plus for this phone.

FIRST! It is truly a honor to be first to comment on a GSMarena review. Regarding the topic: would it have been that hard to put a micro SD card slot on this phone? Really? They made some changes and didn't fix that? HTC... this is a fail.
