« HTC One X Review: The Best Android Phone Right Now
HTC is bringing its A-game in a big way. The One S was good, but the screen and radio were weak links. The One X aims to fix that. It brings a bigger, more beautiful screen, and LTE connectivity. It’s beautifully designed. But is it enough to eclipse the best android handys —or even the iPhone?
Why It Matters
The One X is the flagship of the new HTC One line. The company went for broke on this one. It has a 4.7-inch screen, Qualcomm’s newest 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and it runs Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0. It’s on AT&T’s superfast 4G LTE network. And the materials, physically, look and feel cool and futuristic. Seriously, this thing is gorgeous.
The first thing you’ll notice is the screen. By the beard of Zeus, the screen. The 4.7-inch Super LCD2 is simply the best screen on a mobile device. Ever. Yes, at 312 pixels per inch (PPI) it doesn’t quite reach the iPhone 4S’s 326ppi, but it more than makes up for those 14 missing pixels (which you won’t see anyway). It’s bright enough to be clearly visible at high noon, colors are rich and accurate, and the pixels are all but invisible. Plus, the viewing angle is just insane on this thing. It looks like it’s printed on a glossy magazine page.android handy – It’s awesome.
The form-factor is excellent. It’s different from the cold, hard aluminum of the One S, but the machined polycarbonate unibody on the One X feels plenty strong. Plus, it’s a freaking machined polycarbonate unibody—it feels like the future. There is a nice, brushed feel to its blend of soft curves and sharp lines. The camera juts out of the back a little, but because of the phone’s subtle curve it sits perfectly flat on a table. Just superb attention to detail here. On top of that, it’s very thin (.35 inches) and very light (4.55 ounces). The screen is a bit big for small hands, though.
