Conclusion

There’s a lot to love about the HTC One X, and hardly anything to hate (except perhaps the battery meter and the dirt-grabbing back cover). The device is a good size and comfortable to hold, with excellent performance and a lightning fast web browser that is particularly great thanks to the automatic reading view. Though voice performance was slightly disappointing, you might not have the same issue if AT&T service is strong in your area.

HTC One XAdd in a great camera, a gorgeous display, fast performance, and a slim profile, and the One X is one excellent phone. It has a few minor shortcomings, but if I were in the market for a new Android smartphone today, the One X would definitely be at the top of a very short list.

Pros

  • Great screen
  • Excellent overall performance
  • Great email experience
  • Fantastic web browsing experience
  • Great sound, especially if you use Beats headphones
  • Excellent camera

Cons

  • AT&T Ready2Go requires a computer for initial setup
  • White backplate grabs every speck of dust and dirt — be prepared to wipe it down a lot
  • The buttons are a little too small and hard to find
  • No Microsoft Office-compatible app included
  • Voices can be somewhat muffled due to overactive background noise cancellation
  • Battery meter is either possessed or not entirely accurate (though the battery is adequate to get you through the day).
