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.
This is not a device to be quietly squirrelled away in a trouser pocket. Frankly, being trousered is the last thing on the One X's agenda -- this beast wants to be slapped down on the pub table to bellow its challenge to the competition.
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 goton board, slathered with the latest version of HTC's user interface software: Sense 4.0.
