Comment: The reviewer must be mad, or never have used the old Desire and yet claim web browsing isn't that much different on the HTC One X.
It's actually as clear as night and day. I have used the desire for 24 months. My contract was up, so I went with the One X, BECAUSE the web browsing experience was miles better.
The reviewer is blatantly an Apple owner and it must stick in her craw that the latest Android phones completely blow away Apples creaky, old looking, and rather stale OS.
Good: Light weight, Wide Angle Camera, Design, fast, ICS, more
Bad: Micro sim, (cant swap sims), no beats headphone (was expecting maybe thats why i put it here)
Comment: Just the goods and bad put together. But this is a great phone.
Good: Looks gorgeous, Screen size, display - its closer to natural as compared to AMOLED, Quad Core, Beats Audio, Touch screen, SENSE UI 4.0, video camera
Bad: People eye it !!!
Comment: Well, i am a little taken aback with CNET UK review.
Upgraded from Desire HD
The massive screen is a negative? Guys that's what HTC has always been loved for, it has bigger screens than competition, always. (Also, a 4.8 for S3 is a one up? CNET is biased?)
Quad on the negative side? - You guys need to re-review this phone :)
Well i have this since the days it's launched & its amazes me every time i use it.
Screen - its big and bright enough to be used under the Dubai Sun. It also has natural colors unlike the AMOLED screen that tends to darken the colors in order to win the battle.
User interface: I have always been a SENSE UI fan and continue loving the same. The keypad is amazing and feels better than an S3. Placing icons on the home screen, creating folders, clicking snaps, accessing gallery from the camera... all are simply awesome
Beats Audio: This thin rocks, for once i felt like keeping my walkman back home and taking this for a jog. The sad part though, headphones are not an in box accessory
Looks: I need not say much, it speaks for itself
Battery life: 14 hours, i think smart phone users need to get used to less battery hours
Built quality: Impressive though the plastic cannot take falls, it scratches easily. Gorilla glass is simply superb
Overall: I feel if we keep bench marks aside and look at user friendliness this phone is better than S3
Good: Design, processor, camera finally, weight.
Bad: Battery, lack of space for a memory card
Comment: Ony thing i can say for the person who made a review of this phone is to get your facts right when comparing One X and Samsung S3 because the are similar with the lastest one copying some of the features of the One X. I do understand that you are a woman and that your hands are small but i think you are better off with One S. I can say that Htc improved a lot with the lastest phones. I current own a Htc Desire Hd and looking foward to one of this two phone One X or Samsung S3. I was wainting for the S3 to come out just to see what type of innovation is bringing new and so far i'm not even impress because is the same like One X with a ugly looks and the camera is the same of S2 with some modifications. Maybe you should have a look at T3 so you can learn how to make some reviews.
Good: Beautiful screen, great sound, good pictures, awsome performance, batterylife is also good
Bad: Batterylife could be a bit better, camera is likely to get scratched
Comment: Cnet really made some weird comments on the bad side for this mobile. Like size too big, quad core is overkill - points that are on the plus side for S3. I believe S3 and one x is very close, maybe S3 will perform better on certain benchmarks, but I doubt it will be noticable in normale use. In my opinion, One X is much sleeker and better looking. Battery life was terrible at first, but after a couple of updates from HTC it is now very good (better than my previous SII). Thumbs up. :)
Bad: no memory card
Comment: this comment is to CNET, i don't think you know what you are saying, you guy said Gorgeous 4.8-inch 720p screen, Quad-core processor, for the samsung S3, as good points, and said Massive handset won't suit everyone, Screen has some flex at the edges, Quad-core is overkill for most people.
what are you saying, it's good for the S3, but bad for htc one X, to me htc is a better phone, slick and lovely.
your review is not fair at all, you guys are very biased.
Good: Screen, Camera, Build Quality
Bad: Sometimes lags, but best android experience ever.
Comment: Well, the best screen on any device....be it iPhone 4S or the new iPad. I have never been a fan of AMOLED anyways.....Awesome speed on the apps but as usual for any other android device, third party apps are still a bit sticky. The build quality is super cool, everyone just can't get past the body and the screen. Camera is at par with iPhone 4S, that means the best in the business and with the sense camera feature, image sense, has a slender advantage over the 4S. Overall, 4.5 thumbs up.
Comment: I have had this phone for a good time now I have got a few friends with the iPhone 4S they have used my phone and commented on how much more better and quicker it is than the iPhone. Some have gone through the extent of even selling the iPhone to buy a HTC One X phone, so this phone is obviously up with the iPhone if not better if people I know are getting rid of it to obtain one
I am glad I held out for this phone instead of buying a iPhone and conforming to what everyone else does and goes with apple this review is bias towards apple I will admit I ain't the biggest apple fan boy because they charge way too much for what they make. But this phone I have now is truly a master piece and the future proof value of it is amazing, the processor is intense, and the fact they have even put a 5th low power core in for lower level functions is amazing! They have pretty much thought of everything to save power I can't wait for the update to do with the power saving options this phone will be the one to get for sure if you want to be future proofed!
Good: a big screen just rox .
Bad: no micro sd slot
Comment: it suits my hand and it makes up a good look with me . i love it !!
Good: size, speed, design.
Comment: I own one of these phones and think it's the best phone on the market beating the iPhone with just It's back button alone. Best phone I have had and used by miles! Let's try to find something to moan about........ Er....... Hold on........ I know the battery! What? No recharge it, any phone used constantly will run the battery down? So I guess all you will get is hands down best phone I have ever had. Fast infact very fast, camera and photos fantastic quality. Get 1 get 1!
