Unfortunate bad experience with HTC one x!
Bad things first...
Is it worth 30K plus? Definitely not!!!
I bought this phone last week, the same day the proximity sensor stopped working- which means when you on a phone call the screen goes total blank- you will not be able see second call, switch loud speaker, you can't use number pad (e.g. choose an option during an Air Tel 121 call, etc.)
After playing with the phone for 15min, I got call and it was very uncomfortable talking - the screen was warm (I would say bit hot) it was very annoying. When I keep the volume little less than max I could feel a little vibration in back case behind the speakers.
I loved the touch during demo. But after two days of usage I would rate it average (definitely better than other smartphones though)
Definitely there is little more than average heat both in the back case and front screen. In smart phones you should expect some amount of warm/heat, but one X it was way above what it should have been on a 35k phone.
3rd day with my new phone- I went to a service center recommended by HTC toll free help-line. Surprise, there is no such service center. HTC website is not updated and help-line doesn't know where they service. The service center is pathetic. It was like a hospital Queue! After spending 35k I have to wait in Queue for few hours before I get a chance to explain the problem.
Email layout is good but when u actually open an email it kind of sucks....e.g. it won’t show a table in the body of the message, sometimes it doesn't crop a message to fit the screen
Turn on maps and the battery drains super-fast... 5min on maps and I lot approx. 8% of my battery!
Good stuff about HTC one x......
HTC sense UI is just brilliant. I loved it.
The integration with Google, face book and other social network is amazing. Go to contacts and you get everything about your buddies- Their last FB update, birthdate, photos, etc.
The screen is amazing- sharp and perfect for watching movies and photos
Looks bit stylish and neat.
Camera- no comparison… Too good
Music- sharp and enjoyable ... Very good
Internet surfing is super-fast (only if your network/Wi-Fi is fast)
HTC one x is not for an email person, for someone spending 3-4 hrs/day on phone, frequent traveler. Ask yourself if you need a brilliant camera and a good music/video experience? Or smart phone?
HTC one x - 35K is just for a brilliant camera, music player and large screen video watching. (I would rather buy a Tablet and a good camera!!! Or a 32 inch TV!!! )
I was bit concerned when I saw few more people (at least 4) with one x in the service center (all less than 5 months old). I personally had a bad experience (phone and service). May be its just me!!!
I got a DOA from service center and replaced my phone. I am not using HTC anymore.
I use smart phones for the last 6 years and I am business kind of user.
If you are a First time smart phone buyer and not a business kind of user then ignore my review. You are just going to love this phone.
Well disappointing for me with 1.5 dual core processor and a separate ulp geforce graphic processor you are still able to shoot hd video at 24 frames per second

...Maybe in life you are fated to get the one or two faulty set among the millions set that are released....Cheers
i just bought it yesterday,,, after i rooted it,,,it works smoothly,,,i used to use SG3 too,,,, both are not much different,,, onex feels solid to hold than SG3,,,
What if the battery died for some reason?It will be a mess to change the phone.Can someone tell me the battery life of this phone?Will I be able to use it for 4-5 years?

STOP spreading bullshit and fake rumors. I can bet you never bought a One X. STOP bitching, and speak the truth only when you experience it.
Beth, 01 Nov 2012I have had a lot of phones but I am not a big fan of this one. It dies in like 4 hours and fr... moreI Have to agree, I have had the Tattoo,Desire and and now this piece of crap, so so disappointed. After getting the ONE X in April the first one overheated and was replaced, the current one had been and is at HTC repair centre for the second time, (Keeps rebooting and or crashing all the time, with the keyboard disappearing and only reappearing after a hard Reset) I think HTC have used us as Guinea Pigs to get the over air feedback and use it to develop the HTC One X+
Hey guys !!
I have the one X :) the one X is the only phone I've had which stuns me everyday !! I love the One X :)
Beautiful product :) HTC Fan all the way !!
Would recommend this device to everyone and would rate it on the scale of 100 ..my score would be 200/100
Don't make the mistake by buying the Sammy s3
Guys, mine got updated to 4.0.4 but now it is locked or unlocked why has HTC flunked with us. Why not jointly agitate, offcourse batt and video flicker is built feature. Wake up Taiwanese fulfill it promise. Sold is sold money recovered now we r dependent. My is in warranty.
