Comment: i'm quite happy with my HTC One X.. i dont need to "+" my HTC...
Good: good sound, screen quality
Bad: average performance, build, No 4G
Comment: average phone but do not overlook
Good: huge memory
Bad: 1gb of ram, small battery
Comment: In a comparison between the One X+ and Note 2, the Note 2 wins hands down! The larger battery and quad core processor in the Note 2 give it amazing battery life (compared to the original Note) and the 2gb of ram will ensure it does not slow sown regardless of the workload its under.
Because of the narrower screen on the Note 2 it is actually easier to handle than the original Note as well.
I should add that I own the Galaxy S3 (the Note 2 is my wife's handset) so I have a good likeness to the One X+ in terms of battery size etc.
The massive memory on the One X+ is very tempting, but the lack of ram is a turn off, as is the small battery. If Motorola can squeeze a 3300m/a battery into a smaller phone, there is no longer any excuse for poor battery life on smartphones!
Good: Quad Core, Jelly Bean
Bad: No 4G
Comment: No 4G in the UK, bit of a bummer. If it were 4G, it would knock all other Android phones on the UK market for six. The strength of the casing, if it turns out to be anything like a Samsung Galaxy SIII, will also be a worry. If I was afraid of dropping the phone...I'd keep the Motorola Razr.....
Good: Everything but the battery
Bad: The non-removable battery
Comment: I need a phone that can last a whole weekend of use without access to a charging point. At the moment that means 3 batteries on my HTC Sensation. Even on a typical day with 2x50min commute, my Sensation barely makes it if I use it to while the time. Mobile Charging boxes are not a solution as they're extremely slow at recharging and barely work at all if you're trying to use it at the same time.
I really like HTC phones and it would take a lot for me to swap to another brand so I'll stick with my Sensation until HTC show some sense and either make a phone that can do two days of moderate use (lets say 4 hours of ebook reading, 30 mins data, 30 mins calls) or comes with a removable battery.
I have the money HTC. Just show me the phone!
Bad: could offer more colors instead of just a black model
Comment: the regular one x already pretty much is head to head with the s3 in terms of performance it also has a better screen and camera, so the one x+ is obviously gonna be better than the samsung s3. i dont know why they give so much attention to the samsung when htc's flagship phone is a top of the line android.
Bad: no 4G model for the UK
Comment: It's a shame that HTC have not released a 4G version in the UK/Europe of this handset, apart from that, hopefully it will sell well for HTC.
The only reason that it's not for me is because I already have a HTC One X, thanks to the recent update to 4.0.4 (and pending JellyBean) it seems transpires that it is on par speedwise with the SGS3, HTC just does not have the huge marketing budget of Samsung.
I'm not sure why CNET states that the Samsung Note 2 is the One X+ biggest rival, when there's the Xperia T and LG Optimus G due out very soon.
HTC usually do a refresh of their flapship handsets in mid late October. I hope that this sells well
Good: Same style as original One X, same camera, faster, bigger battery life, Jelly Bean
Comment: I know I did put the phone isn't for me yet I still gave it five stars. It looks an incredible phone, and will be the best out there today but I have the original One X and I love it. Seeing as I've only had it 4 months, I won't be changing just yet.
I love my One X because the design is stunning and in my opinion, it's the best out there today. The screen is gorgeous and the camera is great. It's also mighty quick. This new One X+ looks exactly the same but the higher processor looks fantastic. Battery life admittedly isn't world class on my phone but its not bad - I can easily get a day out of it! The new One X is even better though and looks impressive. HTC have given it 64gb of memory, and whoever complains about it not being enough is ludicrous. My One X is 32gb and that is far too big for me - I have like 25gb left lol
The original One X is still great and I won't be swapping just yet. But when I do, this phone will probably be the one I replace it with. I love HTC and this phone looks outstanding. But at the moment, my phone is more than fantastic enough and I still think I have the best phone out at the moment. The only issue though with this new One X+ would have to be the pricing. It sounds as if its going to be expensive!
Comment: What is the point of this model? This is the phone they should have released in the first instance! No 4G! #Fail! :-\
