HTC One X
Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets HTC has made its mark within the last few years as an industry leader in mobile handsets. I remember the good old days of the Dash Windows phone or the first Android device the G1. Recently released is the One X, HTC’s Flagship device for 2012 and part of the One series family. The One X is available in two versions, the European version which runs on Nvidia Tegra 3 quadcore processor while the American version runs on a 1.5 dualcore Snapdragon S4 processor on AT&T’s 4G LTE network which makes up for the differences in performance. Its sleek unibody design is built with polycarbonate casing which makes it sturdy while holding it with a 4.7-inch 720p HD Super LCD display. The camera is 8mp while the front camera is 2mp which makes for superior video chat. The sound is powered by Beats by Dre for superior quality as intended by the artist. It comes powered with Android latest OS Ice cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0 (HTC User Interface) which makes for easier customization. To me the camera on the Phone is arguable the best on any smartphone currently available on the market from its continuous shooting (up to 99 photos) to its automatic smile capture. The European version comes with a 32gb of memory while its American counterpart has 16gb of memory both are not expandable , HTC has partnered up with Dropbox for additional storage space but there are other cloud services available as well. I personally use the AT&T version, overall performance is superb. I haven’t experienced any dropped calls, battery lasts me for most part of the day; video quality is great, both on the device or when I pair it with my TV using an accessory called the Media link. And I simply can’t do without the camera.
