Out of the three HTC One smartphones that have come out of HTC’s stables, the HTC One X 4G is the top of the line. There is a reason to that as this phone comes with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and also sports the new ImageSense camera technology. A 4.7 inch screen to go with all that really makes the HTC One X 4G a mouthwatering prospect.
Underneath the screen are the Android capacitive buttons while on top of the screen is the 1.3MP front-facing camera. On the right side of the HTC One X 4G is where the volume rocker is situated and this button is responsive to touch. While on the top of the phone is standard audio jack as well as the power/lock button which was also good to touch. Also sitting on the top is the Micro SIM tray. Meanwhile on the left side of the phone is the microUSB port. Finally flipping the phone reveals an 8MP camera which comes with both ImageSense technology and LED flash. Also on the back is a really nice looking speaker grill.
As already seen on the HTC One V, the camera on this phone also comes with the ImageSense technology meaning it starts up in no time. The camera interface itself is interesting as the camera now has continuous shooting mode and it can now also take photos while a video is being shot. The 8MP camera was put to test and it produced photos with a good amount of detail. However, the increase in detail was somehow causing an increase in noise levels as well. However, color balance was good and the photos appeared natural. Video recording on the HTC One X 4G is done at 1080p at a low rate of 23fps, a weird combination. The details were good, but it wasn’t smooth.
The internet browsing experience on HTC One X 4G wasn’t a fun affair. The browser wasn’t intuitive and there were some issues with the many buttons found on the screen. These buttons for instance the ‘back’ or ‘tabs’ key appear and disappear as they like. It can get really annoying at times. In terms of connectivity options, the phone comes with all the usual options and also has 4G LTE connectivity onboard.
Moving on to call quality, the smartphone did a nice job on both ends. Voices were loud enough and the words were easy to make out. However, staying away from noisy places might be a good idea if you want to hear everything your friend is saying. The speakerphone was ok, nothing to brag about. A phone with a giant screen like the HTC One X 4G surely deserves a huge battery and it gets one in the form on the 1800mAh battery. It should get an average user through the day.
Pros and Cons
Video recording was bad mainly because of the low recording rate and the browser needs some work.
