When Americans think of mobile phone brands, two maybe three names spring immediately to mind: Apple, Samsung, and perhaps Motorola or even HTC. I bet Sony isn't on the tip of your tongue, despite the company's marketing efforts. … Read more
HTC has announced a new and improved One X.
Dubbed the One X+, the device is basically a refreshed version of the same One X HTC is already selling. The handset comes with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and nixes the One X's 1.5GHz quad-core processor available in the global version for a 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip. The One X+ has doubled its storage to 64GB, and according to HTC, its LTE version is "up to 67 percent faster" than its predecessor, through it's not clear how it arrived at that figure.… Read more
Up until now, we've heard plenty about what might be in store for the forthcoming HTC One X+. Today, however, thanks to yet another leak from @evleaks, we see that the smartphone is destined for at least T-Mobile.
Rumored to be a faster, more robust version of the company's flagship Android handset, the details paint a pretty picture. Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and running HTC's Sense 4.5 UI, the One X+ is expected to feature a quad-core Tegra 3+ AP37 processor running at 1.6GHz. As one of the first models on the … Read more
Apple didn't do much to the iPhone's camera from the 4S to the 5. Then again, it didn't really have to.
The iPhone 4S has one of the best cameras on a smartphone, and with some improved processing and other enhancements, the iPhone 5 does now, too. But it's not the only mobile device with a good camera built in, with the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 offering up some strong competition.
This week, you finally get to see the results of my high-flying Road Test of the HTC One X! I actually jumped out of a helicopter because we were so sure that this HTC One X commercial, touting its camera features to such an extent that it could be used in a midair fashion shoot, was a ridiculous put-on. You'll see in the segment whether I managed to get the shot, and whether the phone's camera and features performed as advertised.
With less than one week to go before HTC takes the stage in New York, additional details have sprung up for the HTC One X+ smartphone. As a refresher, this is the handset rumored to be a faster, more powerful version of the AT&T phone.
Expectations thus far put the phone as running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and featuring 1.6GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor. Coupled with 1GB RAM and 32GB storage, the One X+ should offer consumers an updated HTC Sense 4.5 user interface.
HTC's chairperson said that the company has no intention of settling with Apple, according to Asia-based reports.
HTC "has great skills in innovation and has the confidence to face legal lawsuits with Apple," the Digitimes report says, attributing those comments to Wang.
She also said that the $1 billion jury verdict against Samsung in the U.S. "does not mean the failure of the entire Google Android ecosystem."
HTC has been mired in a legal … Read more
Apple and Samsung are running away with the smartphone market, but does that mean that consumers should steer clear of all the other handset makers?
In this edition of Ask Maggie, I help one reader decide if he should take a gamble and ditch Apple for an HTC One X. Will he still get the same level of service he has had with Apple?
I also explain to another reader that the Wi-Fi hotspot feature is included in the price of the new family share plans.
Steer Clear of HTC because of its sales troubles?
Dear Maggie, I've been … Read more
Radio Shack announced today it is cutting the price of AT&T's HTC One X in half to just $99.99 this Sunday, July 29. And as of this afternoon, AT&T has matched that price online.
This new price matches up with similar reports hitting the Internet in the early morning hours. Considering the high-end Android smartphone is only a few months old, the $100 price drop is quite noteworthy. Chances are good that the deep discount comes as a rebuttal to the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is now on sale for as low as $149.
Looking across the smartphone landscape, I'm seeing a trend in high-end models getting closer to the $100 price point.… Read more
T-Mobile customers may lack 4G LTE, but if the latest rumors are right, it'll be the first U.S. carrier to offer its customers a quad-core smartphone.
The HTC One X+, suggests TMoNews, will carry Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the same chipset used in international versions of the HTC One.
The U.S. versions of the HTC One family of phone -- which includes T-Mobile's HTC One S, AT&T's HTC One X, Sprint's HTC Evo 4G LTE, and U.S. Cellular's HTC One V -- come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 … Read more
