Good: design, screen (really beautiful), software, battery life and HTC sense.
Bad: I own it for a while and nothing bad happened yet. Maybe the only (sometimes frustrating) thing is the languagebutton in the keyboard, sometimes the languages changes when you press on the wrong button.
Comment: I REALLY like this smartphone. The design and functions are very nice and after a while you can't miss the big screen. An Iphone is suddenly too small. The battery life is fine too and nothing to worry about.
Good: Screen bright and clear, blistering speed, lovely feel
Bad: Can't get at the battery
Comment: Fantastic phone, lovely to hold, beautiful screen, can't understand about flexing, when are you going to do that, the phone just feels quality.
Good: Bright and clear, feels great in the hand
Comment: Lovely feel and look, amazingly quick, fantastic bright and clear screen.
Bad: Battery life
Comment: This product is awesome from HTC. I have been an HTC guy for over 2 years now...now a proud owner of the HTC SENSATION XE!!! It really shocked me when I read the Samsung S3 review...For the X One Quad Core is Over Kill nd For Samsung its super fast??? Its too much guys...why so biased?? I second Arsum nd his comments....HTC rules!!!!!!!!!!!
Good: Great design, awesome screen, slick interface
Bad: Non-changeable battery, annoying volume key/lock button placement
Comment: A lot's been said about the non-expandable memory but 32Gb on board as standard and free 25Gb Dropbox space give you plenty. The screen issues all reviews point to, really aren't issues; who presses a screen that hard?
Overall a really good phone which I'm very happy with. I initially wanted to wait for the S3 but there's not enough to differentiate between the two phones and I prefer the design of the One X.
Good: Design, Processor, Screen size, Camera features, ICS, Sense 4
Comment: I have just literally ordered this phone and I cannot wait to get it. I have had a go on many in shops and its amazing! Its so fast and I love the screen size and quality. I also like the camera features like recording HD video while taking still shots (which Samsung have blatantly copied)
I am a bit annoyed at CNET's review of this when you compare it to the S3's review. Both phones are Quad Core, yet CNET say its 'overkill' on the One X yet they then say its amazing on the S3!?! Both phones have huge screens, yet CNET say its a big too big on the One X yet say its amazing on the S3!?! Biased maybe??
Face fact, this is an amazing phone and much better than the S3 in my opinion. Sense is soo much better than TouchWiz and the price that Samsung charge compared to the One X price is ridiculous. £500 for S3 and £420 for One X when the specs show they are exactly the same!?! You also get Beats Audio integrated with the One X!
I do think that Samsung have blatantly copied HTC with a few features. HTC designed a camera that could record 1080p HD video while taking still shots. Samsung copied this and now everyone is raving about how fantastic Samsung are...when actually it was HTC who thought of the idea. HTC let users have free dropbox space...and guess what? Samsung have copied them. HTC let you take continuous burst shots with the camera and Samsung have copied them with that.
And for those people who say the design isnt good, its MUCH nicer than the S3. The S3 is like an oval - abit like a fridge magnet!
I cannot wait to get this phone. HTC RULES!
Good: Screen, design, processor, camera
Comment: Dear Cnet, I actually liked visiting your website for reviews but now you guys are just becoming pro Apple and Samsung
First it was the iPhone 4 with its huge antenna problem and dinky screen but you guys called it the best phone around(but when you reviewed it again you lowered its score?) now its the Galaxy s3, take nothing away from it i think its pretty good except for its horrendous design but either way you have praised its 4.8 inch screen where as you bash the one X's 4.7 as too big, you say quad core is overkill but for s3 its super fast + you call its design as good(come on), this is the most biased review i have ever seen!, i would say this amazing phone needs a to be reviewed again! You have praised pretty much everything on the S3 which you have mentioned as a negative here.......... It seems like you are just giving in under the pressure of the masses
Good: Design, Screen, Beats Audio
Comment: 3 days until this bad boy arrives at my door. Root, CWM and a little wait for MIUI and thats the next 2 years sorted out. CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
i dont get the point y people like it so much. its heavy and design is quite bad. the hardware has nothing which stands except cpu however Samsung's own exynos is rated better already. it also has features which are quite low graded compared to galaxy s series. i guess even though galaxy s3 is selling soon, this is not even better then s2. there is also no suspense in the design, htc'c main designs were good and refreshing at the start but now its getting boring. user interface and the ice cream sandwich fits horribly on this phone
Thats about as valid as a chocolate teapot.
No go troll sumwhere else surley you must have homework to do!!!!!!!
Good: the processor
Bad: size compared to screen being big, standing out camera which gets scratches, low durability design, over priced
