HTC One X

The Good Ice Cream Sandwich; Latest Sense interface is fast and slick; Great 8-megapixel camera; Classy look and lightweight feel; Beats Audio.

The Bad Battery life is questionable; Massive handset won't suit everyone; Screen has some flex at the edges; Quad-core is overkill for most people.

The Bottom Line The One X is a phone for a specialist group of gadget fiends with big wallets and high power requirements. Unfortunately for them, the price of all that power-draining tech appears to be less than stellar battery life.

HTC One X

If you're of the view that bigger is better, the HTC One X will put a massive smile on your face. With its whopping 4.7-inch display, it's heading towards mini tablet territory.

Lift the gigantic lid and the theme of big is beautiful continues. The One X packs a quad-core chip -- the first device from HTC to do so. It's also got Android Ice Cream Sandwich on board, slathered with the latest version of HTC's user interface software: Sense 4.0.
