And I am not a HTC fanboy, as I said earlier, I like Sony's UI better than HTC sense.

Why does Galaxy S3 look so cheap when you use it? Yes, its because of the blueish tint. I hate blueish whites.

I still tip in favor of Sony's Custom cooked UI over HTC Sense.

2.) At 100% brightness Xperia Z colours look very washed out, but even One X display colours are very accurate at that brightness level.

A well written and precise review gsmarena, Kudos!! Now coming to the phone itself, I can't help but feel that HTC makes very small but very glaring omissions, and the problem is it affects usability pretty badly. Like in the case of Power button, a 5" device with power button at the top!?!? and small features like toggle widgets in the notification area also not to mention a music player with some sort of equalizer. I hope sense 5 and HTC One can change that.
I am specially looking forward for Sense 5.0 coz I own an One X+, so people like me will get updated to it. :-)

Looks like a good phone then, the bigger question is WHO want a HTC? I had one also once, high end device, but by far the crappiest i ever seen. Never again. I know a lot of former HTC owners who never want one again. Total garbage is what they are good at.

LG introduced the first dual-core Cortex A9 (Optimus 2X) and the first quad-core Krait (Optimus G).
