I got this phone for Christmas last year and I absolutely love it!
It has a stylish design and is a very sturdy phone. Unlike the iPhone or other smart phones the screen doesnt smash the first time you drop the phone. I have dropped it on wood flooring over 15 times and on concrete more than 5 times, the worst it has got it a few scratches on the back and side of the phone.
You can personalize it in so many new and different ways so no 2 HTCs are the same. There are different ways of unlocking the phone if you wish to have a password, there is face recognition, numeric pin number, pattern or lettered password.
The sound and visual quality are excellent. It has beats audio so the sound quality is great. It has a sensitive microphone so there is never a 'huh? what did you say?' whilst on the phone to others. The camera quality is brilliant, and the phone has a powerful processor. The 4.7 inch screen means the phone is easy to hold and type, tiny fingers or stylus' aren't needed to type on this phone.
Messaging is quick and easy, you don't have to wait forever for the message to send. Setting up your email is very quick and easy to do on the phone, it cleverly syncs so that your phone knows how often you're checking your emails and updating your inbox accordingly.
Battery life is good not perfect but good. I charge it every night but I am constantly on it during the day playing games and listening to music. Overall, this is a great phone and I definitely would recommend it to friends.
The HTC One X is a great smartphone and is definitely some serious competition for the Apple iPhone. The screen is large but I don't think this is a problem as it is suitable for all ages. The phone as all the available features needed for a modern smartphone. The graphics are of a high quality, great for gaming. The phone has an option when texting the user doesn't even need to lift a finger to type a word just swiping along the letters completes the word. The camera is one of the best I have seen in a smart phone great zoom and editing features. Like all smartphones the battery life isn't great if you are a heavy user but it will last the day if gaming isn't being done. I have dropped the phone a few times and it is still in tact therefore the phone is durable enough for everyday use. WELL DONE HTC

If you have not got a smart phone yet, then this one is a great one to start with!
Even so I am not a very technically minded person, I find this phone extremely easy to use and overall quite intuitive. Even my toddler work it out really quickly and there are plenty of apps to keep them occupied for ages, which comes in handy at long journeys or in cafe's and restaurants. And generally speaking there are some fantastic apps available for this phone - something for everybody.
I just fell in love with this one, when I first saw it. I like the simple design. It's light, slim and easy to hold!
The screen is nice and big and the quality of the pictures/videos is amazing.
I love having the internet on the go and being able to use the map on my phone if I need to find an address, check my emails, catch up on facebook etc.
It's also really fast and very responsive. The scrolling function is really smooth.
However I think the battery life is awful and I find myself having to charge this phone almost daily.
The other critique I have is the camera. I really don't think it is as good as described and I find the picture quality lacking, unless there is extremely good lighting.
Apple or Android? It's the age old question but it's become more complicated in recent years with the influx of new competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy and Nokia Lumia. The HTC One X launched in 2012 as a flagship phone to compete with the likes of the iPhone it's seen considerable success and growth in popularity with a number of recent variations being released including the One X+ and the soon to launch new version HTC One.
The specs for the HTC One X remain impressive and include 1GB of Ram, 32GB of internal storage and a 1.GHz quad core processor and remains one of then fastest smart phones available.Also included is a rear facing 8 megapixel camera with video recording at 24 frames per second and a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera.
Performance - The Good
As an upgrade from the HTC Desire I found this phone to be an outstanding improvement. The larger screen made it much easier to view images and read text, the screen was also considerably more responsive than older HTC models. Web browsing also becomes a pleasure with the HTC One with it's super fast quad core processing power better enabling the phone to handle multiple applications. The rear mounted camera produces a clear, crisp image and the autofocus feature is usually very quick to respond. Having had this phone for nearly a year I've had next to no problems in terms of reliability whatsoever.
Performance - The Bad
Unfortunately there are a few downsides to the HTC One X not least is it's well reported battery issues, depending on your level of app use the phone can often run out of charge before the end of the day, though I've found battery saving apps that can make a significant improvement to battery performance. For me the speaker system is also a little disappointing and I wouldn't recommend using this to supply music at a BBQ for example (perhaps I'm asking for too much!). The only other issue is that the front facing 1.6 megapixel camera produces a pretty poor and grainy image thougn if I'm honest I hardly use this.
I have had this phone for over a year now and since it was released it has been updated with the new HTC One.
The phone itself still has great specifications and these are listed below:
Display - 4.7" Super LCD Screen
Processor- 1.5Ghz Quadcore Processor
Platform - Android 4.1 with HTC Sense 4
Memory - 32 GB Storage, 1GB RAM
Battery - 1800 mAh
The phone itself comes packaged in a clamshell box with the usual suspects such as charger, standard headphones.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the case up was the size of the handset, at 5.29" in length and 2.75" in width its sure does stand out.
The phone itself it a thing of beauty, the screen is bold and colourful and runs at a resolution of 720x1280. The phone itself is very fast and all the menus run fluid and smoothly as you would expect.
The display is also protected using cornering Gorilla glass - which helps protect the screen from being damaged by normal use, this does work however my seven year old son still managed to smash mine during last summer.
The graphics on this phone are excellent as you would expect on anything running a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor - I have ran a lot of games on this with no issues such as Shadowgun, FIFA 13 and GTA3.
The HTC One X is cornered round the edges and the screen is a little raised from the casing, where the phone differs from other HTC handsets such as the desire, is that there are no fixed buttons below the screen, such as the home and menu buttons, these have been replaced by soft touch keys.
The Phone is light and confortable to hold and the call quality as you would expect from a flagship phone is crystal clear.
Where HTC have clearly put a lot of work is within the camera on this - photos can be taken at lightening speeds and HTC have also included a dedicate chip for processing the photos - as you have no doubt seen with the adverts from last year.
There are however a few niggles with this handset.
The battery life is awful, even with power management I normally get around 12 hours of light use therefore when I get in from work the phone normally has a low battery warning.
The handset also takes a while to charge therefore if you do run of of juice it might be a while before you have enough power to continue for the rest of the day.
Under load as well my handset does get a bit warm as well however even with these little issues I still dont regret getting this as my phone - and even within its age the only handset I would consider swapping it for is the new HTC One
This was HTC's first major flagship phone that proved they have potential to create brilliant smart phones. The phone seemingly displays efficency, and screams fluidity while rocking a quad core 1.5GHz processor that makes everything just seem smooth.
The graphics certainly are expectional I can not think of a moment this phone has glitched or displayed some sort of technological difficulty. Games, and all your favourite applications are seemingly fluid and present a professional finish.
What really made me fall in love with this phone was despite the functionality of the phone, the design really made me want to pick up my phone for no other reason than just to look at it. All too often I see other Android phones that are limited by plasticity, and overall look tacky which by there performance may shine but lack a crisp finish to the outside cover.
HTC One X does deliver on aesthetics, performance, and price competitive.
