This is one awesome phone. HTC has gone back to basics with Sense and have done a fantastic job. It could be a Nexus, really, just now a juiced-up version of Galaxy Nexus.
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.
So we've had the HTC One X and the Sony Xperia S for over 1 week now. For all those stuck in the decision to choose from one of the two we hope this will help.
Build - We will give this one the Xperia S due to the fact that when you hold this phone in your hand it feels as though you are holding an advanced piece of technology. Even though it is heavier and larger in width it felt very natural to hold. Not as easy to drop as the unibody design and thinness of the Htc one x.
Hardware - 4/5 cores is better than 2 simple as that, even though the technology in the Htc one x it is more advanced and faster overall we look forward to the 2nd generation quad cores that will optimize hyperthreading.
UI - Timescape vs Sense 4.0 - Sony takes this one away even though they are still running on 2.3.7. The sense 4.0 is very simple very bare, however it takes up alot more space, memory, and phone processes. Sony has done a very good job in optimizing all aspects of gingerbread and even provide us with hints and tips to the future ics.
Display - Ppi goes to Sony. However viewing angles are dominant by htc.When we hold both phones directly in our hands we have to pick the Sony due to its true colors and beautiful bravia engine.
Sound - beats vs Xloud - both are quite even here
Pick the Sony Xperia S, from what we see now he has the hardware and optimization to travel with the masses this year. Although it doesnt have 4 cores it is still not behind because we won't be needing anything more for the next 2 os platforms.
100 euros cheaper and one ICS comes it will blow you away compared to sense and other ics devices.
What a beautiful phone One X?
That’s why we say HTC is Quality Brilliant :)
Battery life of one x is really good u can get up to 1.5 day m using it . Htc using li-po battery which is long lasting.
Phone Mechanic, 08 Apr 2012It is not the QUANTITY of sales it is the QUALITY and consumer satisfaction, in which they are... moreGee, I've heard a lot of complaints from friends about premium HTC smartphones with failing batteries. If Samsung has such lousy phone units, why is it that their profit earning from selling smart phones is way better than HTC? Probably Quality AND Quantity.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2012Comes with HTC earphones :/ It does, but they sound pretty good. I just got the One X yesterday and have a Sensation XE with Beats as well, and to be honest, on some types of music, the One X sounds better with the HTC earphones.
bliin, 08 Apr 2012unsatisfied with the power of its battery, it should use a battery which can stand in long tim... moreOne X got a decent battery life.
If you want more battery life then go for moto droid razr maxx and forget the HD display and quad core fun.
unsatisfied with the power of its battery, it should use a battery which can stand in long time like motorola droid razr maxx which use 3000mAh, another one no slot for memory card
i think any company which produce smart phone should interduce a smart phone with a battery power which can stand in long time like motorola droid razr maxx 3000mAh
htcsam, 08 Apr 2012if u want beat headphones wait till mayHTC might stop bundling Beats headsets with their phones
I work in a phone shop and this phone clearly is the best phone on the market ATM, Sonys S and Galaxy Note doesnt even come close. its been out for over a week now in australia but GSM still has no review on it when so many of the compition websites do. You were leaders in the mobile phone industry GSMarena but now you trail the other sites big time. What happend to you guys or you just dont care anymore???
Mobilemaster, 07 Apr 2012Yes, they should do is marketing. I mentioned this before. Samsung is doing this serious.It is not the QUANTITY of sales it is the QUALITY and consumer satisfaction, in which they are on top, that matters.
How often you see an advertisement of Hyundai, Toyota, honda etc. (premium segments) on T.V or on newspapers? How about Merc, BMW and Audi? Of course everyone knows Hyundai, toyota etc sell more than Merc and BMW. But we dont get the quality and satisfaction of a merc on a toyota.
Same in the case of mobiles, the quality of htc is the best out there in the market.
And in my opinion they dont have to heavily market and cheat people like samsung do.(cheap quality and NO ICS for med-segment phones).
hi guys bought one x yesterday and it hangs a lot shows the loading sign quite often i think some software issue and not really fast as it should be with multiple cores running ya camera is great beat audio is ok not great and what else not very happy with this unit ,would give it 6 out of 10
CHINZY, 06 Apr 2012does this phone come with beats in ear head phones or htc headphones ?if u want beat headphones wait till may
