The HTC One X on 3
Why we like it
- Enormous 4.7 inch screen
- Incredibly powerful quad core processor means you can multitask with ease
- Great photo and video capabilities
- 25GB Dropbox storage free for two years
Are you looking for a top-of-the-range and powerful smartphone that can handle anything you throw at it? 3 HTC One X may be the only contender: with its quad-core processor, up to 32 GB internal memory and huge 4.7 inch Super LCD display, this is a serious piece of technology which exceeds all expectations as HTC's new flagship smartphone.
Despite its satisfyingly substantial appearance, and a seriously enormous screen, the One X is lighter than an iPhone and surprisingly thin at 8.9mm. It's also great-looking, its stylish casing and glossy sides giving it a real executive appearance. The main event is the huge high-quality display, though, with incredible viewing angles - turn and tilt the phone any way you like and you will still have a crystal clear view of the screen.
The One X uses HTC's Sense 4 interface, combined with the new Android 4.0 platform. This is very easy to navigate, and pleasingly responsive. Swiping between screens is a cinch, and we love the lack of buttons that keeps everything simple. There are no worries about storage either; as well as the phone's internal memory, you'll get an additional 25GB free for two years courtesy of HTC's partnership with Dropbox.
The powerful processor makes the One X ridiculously fast, and allows you to multi-task as much as you like. Say goodbye to slow load times and tortuous waiting; the One X allows you to run several applications at once without a hitch, whether you want to play music, edit photos and videos, or browse the web (opening as many tabs as you like!). The One X is also being hyped as the phone of the future for 3D gaming, so if that's your thing, there is simply no other choice!
It almost goes without saying that the photo and video capabilities of the One X are outstanding. HD video recording, with inbuilt stabilization to remove any shakiness and slow motion video capture and playback, means that you'll get impressively high-quality videos every time. You can also capture stills whilst recording video, and the automatic flash and focus means all you need to do is point and click.
The Three HTC One X will be cornering the market in high-end, powerful smartphones, so get ahead of the crowd and get yours now!
