That was an excellent workout with HTC one X.
That's much similar to what I will mostly be doing with it.
As, I've mentioned before HTC has a history with Battery life, Speaker quality, some what picture quality + the damn thing gets warm.
I've been using Sony my entire life. its sad Sony xperia S has an old processor. While all other companies are pushing forward to new tech. Sony is still doing bananas with that old boy.
I appreciate you time to my reply. Thank !
oh yes... I'm very much concerned about sound / music interface on HTC one X
Can you please tell me if it has a custom EQ? , I have no clue
& how is the sound on Headphones.. not the Beats by dre headphones tho.. regular headphones.
I have Skullcandy: Mix Master Mike

"So my battery opinion so far, I have only done one complete charge so far. I am now finishing my second battery cycle. Its a li-po battery same as the iPhone battery.
Its good. Not as good as 4S. No.
Better by a mile than the HTC Desire. Not bad considering quad core 180x720 screen.
I took phone off charger at 11AM precisely. It is now 6.33PM. I have 14% battery left. Why you may ask? So soon?
Well, I have done a little more than usual for my test. I have watched 2 movies (or at least let them run) One was 1:34:37, 640x336 res.
The other was 320x180 1:19:40. They looked upscaled on the phone though. Thats nearly 3 hours of movies.
I played Scabble for about an hour all up. I have 4 email addresses set to smart sync (busy in peak). And lastly, I have volume up half way, screen up halfway, and bluetooth, Auto sync, and WIFI on the whole time.
Some idle time ofcourse. And also some internet for about 30-45 mins, maybe more.
14% left. The iPhone 4S that I have, would last a little longer. Phone does get warm, but so does iphone uner stress. Oh yeah I also played that mario Kart copy, tiki kart. Screen looks amazing the more you look at it.
Its butter smooth, i am not getting any of these loading issues people are supposedly getting. No wierd hangs. Nothing but pretty good software actually. I do however still like the form factor of the iPhone (specifically, the size) I love the One X, feels like a quality build, like a Lumia 800/N9 (polycarbonate). very smooth UI, camera is a treat, quick.
remember, iPhone has 960x640 (614,400) with a 1430mah battery, the One X has 1280x720 (921,600 pixels)screen with a 1800mah battery. Using simple math that equates to exactly 50% more pixels on a screen that is 25% bigger. So battery was never going to be better I think.
I am liking being able to play nearly any type of videos on the HTC, something I am not used to coming from the Apple iPhone. The HTC sense looks so nice, and makes others look bland in my opinion. Make your own mind up about size. I cant say smaller is better, because someone else might love big screen for videos.
I do however still have to give the iPhone the crown for the smoothness of the apps. NBA.tv, speedtest.net app, and even twitter all look much nicer on the iPhone. They look good on the Android platform, but they dont have that edge the iOS apps have in terms of resolution, sharpness, options, layout etc. Ill make a youtube video for you guys to have a quick look at what Im talking about. nothing fancy, justa quick look."
I have added since that I believe the 4S takes better photos, but the menu system on the ONE X seems more comprehensive.
Battery is better on the 4S, definitely. But, the battery is ok on the ONE X.
Not the best and I will update after I have had a couple more charges as Im only on my 3rd/4th day of ownership.
Its not the bluetooth, or 3G, or videos that kill the battery on the ONE X, its the screen, its big!
I have however had an issue where my phone got some funky green lines on the screen when in camera, I had to reset for them to away. Like software static??
And the battery was worse today becasue I played scramble all day!
Keep in mind, my iPhone 4S was using battery, all of it, in about 5 hours due to some glitch crap when it came out, I had to restore and do this and do that, and let apple release a patch, and only then was it humming along. So I wait and see.
Stand by on the HTC is a breeze, you could get 5 days I reckon, its the screen that kills it!
One Word - Superb !
Those who are worrying about the battery - DONT ! :)
Its good !
Best Phone Ever !
Got a grey one for me..loving it.
From Sense 4 to Camera to everything.
No Cons !

Well, HTC has a history with battery life, speaker sound & the device gets relativity hot while in use with period of time.
Devices such as Sony Xperia line, Samsung Galaxy series are pretty good in that regard.
Can you comment on the Sound Quality & if you feel the device gets hot while in use ?
Android's is an AWESOME OS !
Its the hardware that can give you the best experience of OS. & HTC One X seems to have it all.
Absolutely stunned thst this phone is not expandable beyond 32Gb! Have HTC gone insane??? I've got more storage on my HTC Wildfire S!! I'm never going to pay £50 a year to Dropbox to store 50Gb when 64Gb microSD cards will be £30 each within the next 6 months. This issue, and the clearly underpowered batter,y is a complete and utter cock-up. :o(
Its display is very good however browser is not as good as on the galaxy s 2, when pinch zooming it blinks alot, and browser speed isnt also as fast, but i guess its down to the users desire to choose.

Just want to add, that I took some photos back to back with the iPhone 4s and it does appear to be that the iPhone 4s photos are better from the 6 photos each I took. The one x has a lot nicer effects and cropping effects that are easy to use but the one x photos were always grainy. The one x photos appeared sharper but had that grainy look. :) maybe an update to fix but for now iPhone seems king still for photos (or the N8 I should say). I will give another baterry review in a few weeks. Keep you posted on anythibg interesting.

I bought the HTC ONE X 4 days ago and I am a little disappointed with battery life when comparing it to the same usage I did with my iPhone 4S.
Within 10 to 15 minutes of just doing the basics, such as check Facebook, twitter, check emails ans respond to 3 text messages and I have the phone set to all power saving options and screen down quiet low, my battery loses 10% life within this time when compared to the iPhone 4S it only uses 2% battery power. I also find it extremely hard to see the screen when out in the sun, I can see nothing, which is just horrible.
Is this normal for an android mobile and HTC?
