I bought this phone end of December in Taiwan for teh equivalent of GBP480, i got the black model. It was hard to get as it was constantly sold out. The sim card port cover broke immediately the first time we opened it, it wouldn't click into place after being opened, but HTC replaced it with a new one after examining it. very lucky.
Apart from that rocky start, this phone is the best i have ever owned...period. It's fast, has a fantastic screen and design and fits in the hand well. battery life is surprisingly good, i get 15-18 hours on average with lots of internet surfing, photo taking,listening to music through my bluetooth headset, and always being connected to a wifi or a mobile network.
However no NFC for taiwan versions, but it's available on the japanese, US, and chinese versions. WTH??

Even if they(HTC) launch a phone at time, no one will even come to know about HTC's launch wher the market would be flooded by SGS4!!
You know what? I am sick of the UI that every manufacturer puts it in every of their phones. HTC, SAMSUNG, APPLE, SONY, LG, HUAWEI all of them. I wan to delete/disable the UI from the system and use ANDROID own on UI. How do I do it? Anyone? Would love you immediate feedback.

some folks are far to grow mentally if not academically. they posts trash which goes like this IT IS NOT FOR ME why can't you keep quite cause it is not for you OK what impact will it make to someone when you dislike a phone which you don't even use? I'm using HTC OneX+ which is great in terms of battery. Experia Z/ZL it's UI is terrible compared to HTC Sense. HTC batteries mostly are moderate except HTC desire S & HTC One X+ that has the best battery that can reach almost 2 days.
Jed Cutler, 31 Jan 2013I have no problem with my battery. Plus this phone is just palin beautiful!If u dont care about the battery life then its fine, but for me its a big disadvantage for a device that are so beautiful but very weak/poor battery life... Htc will make a new upgrade version soon... They wanna match with sony xperia z/zl and samsung galaxy note 2 and samsung galaxy s4... They will announce it soon!! Just wait another 3 month frm now...
AnonD-107388, 31 Jan 2013You serious? Is there any disadvantage other than battery life?Any other problem? Accept for the battery life is not met expectation otherwise it will be a great device with higher battery capacity... Screen display is just awesome but do not set the screen brightness at max lvl.. Surely the battery will not last long... Its true that the usb hatch sometime very hard to open if u hv short nail to open it...
Well i have a basic question.. when the brand says launched it should also include "in stores" ... ppl go mad calling stores n dealers and they say its launched not in stock. i feel this is insane. There should be sm rule that launched means in "hands of final consumer"... not launched in sm stupid conference or room

Guys i am using HTC one X, the battery life is dismal. HTC should try bigger batteries. it doesn't make any sense of the processing power/Ram/Storage if u don't have the juice to run it...this phone with 2500-3000 mah will make it perfect.
Just one week i'm using HTC butterfly, when i try download mail service, display INSUFFICIENT MEMORY...any suggestion
Shame they are not gonna sale this in United Kingdom! Love my HTCs and this looks really great!!
Omg! What is HTC even thinking about this phone? An old 8mp camera,2020 maH battery and the fanous beats audio(only htc should know what that beats really do!!) And above that it is priced at Rs 46,000!! There are lot of phones available within 35k( Optimus G,Nexus 4, SG Note & SGS3) Save yourself HTC!!
