    Great phone with not so great battery life, April 16, 2012

    This review is from: HTC One X Unlocked Gsm Phone, 16GB, Gray (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    PROS: Hardware, screen, ICS, HTC Sense (yes I think it is a pro!), camera
    CONS: Battery life, no replaceable battery option, missing dedicated search key
    Recommendation: If you are ready to compromise on the battery life then this is a definite BUY from me

    To be fair, I knew what I was getting into when I bought this phone. Excellent hardware as long as you don’t count battery as part of the hardware!

    On very basic usage like talking, texting and moderate browsing and with the screen brightness set to auto, you can probably get about 8 hours of battery life out of this.

    But with about 45 mins of Pandora, push email, games and basically the things the phone is actually meant to be used for, you will find yourself charging it twice in 8 hours. My average battery life on fair amount of phone usage come to about 6 hours. This includes about an hour of actual phone calls, some online chatting, about an hour of pandora and few games in between to kill time.

    But enough about the problems. The phone has lots of good stuff going for it.

    The screen is just brilliant. I will not get into the tech specs of it, but as an end user, I like what I see when it is displayed on this screen.

    The camera is fast as promised though I still feel it takes a little longer to launch than I would have liked it to. Once launched, the picture clicking is fast and smooth. As you may have read elsewhere, the camera is good, but don’t throw away your SLRs or point & shoots just yet.

    The phone is fast and there is no doubt about it. I have done fair amount of multi-tasking on it and it did not seem to have an adverse effect on the performance. But I do like the ability to be able to actually close each app unlike earlier versions of Android.

    My one gripe with the design is the elimination of the dedicated search button at the bottom. I don’t know why it was done away with as it was really useful and I am not saying that just because I had gotten used to it on my HTC Desire HD.

    I like the uni-body design except for the fact that now I dont even have the choice to replace the battery. Not that I did so with my old phone, but that was mainly due to lack of tech support from HTC while trying to get the right battery.

    I know people have been complaining about the ‘limited’ 32 GB of which only 26 GB is actually available with no option to expand. Personally, it is enough space for me. I do not intend to store and watch HD movies on a phone, even if it has a 4.7 inch screen.

    I also like that the phone came with a 25 GB dropbox account. It seamlessly connected with my existing dropbox account and simply added the additional space to my existing account. HTC Sense has a lot of integration with drop box, such as the ability to attach files in an email from your dropbox folder by sending a short url in the mail (mind you this is different then the standard option of ‘Sharing’ your dropbox file via email). However, this drop box integration exists only when you use the native Email app and not the Gmail app (whats up with that google?). Frankly, while google is doing a lot of great things, it needs to get its act together on integration and support of its own products. I have seen a trend that new google products are better supported by third party apps than google itself (for the longest time google docs worked much better on IE than google chrome!).

    Face unlock is cool but a novelty and not so much of a utility. I would have called it a utility if I did not need to press the power on button to first wake up the phone, then slide the HTC Sense lock screen to unlock the phone before even reaching the face unlock screen. There is a reason it is featured under the security tab.

    I am still playing with the phone and will update this review at a later date with more information.

    Update1: HTC released an OTA update yesterday which is said to improve the battery life along with other minor bug fixes. Today was the first day of use with the new update. The phone shows a remaining batter life of little over 50% where as in the past it would be between 30-40% by this time of the day. I will post an update after playing with it over the weekend.

    The King of Android (for now), May 25, 2012

    This review is from: HTC One X Unlocked Gsm Phone, 16GB, Gray (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    PROS: GORGEOUS screen, fast, beautiful design, Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC Sense, Camera.
    CONS: Battery duration, and that it is non-removable (unibody).

    So yes, as most people mentioned already, the only disadvantage I see on this phone is battery duration… a lot of people already reviewed the phone quite well here, so I’ll just focus on this matter. Until a few days ago, I would’ve rated the phone 4 stars, but I downloaded a couple of apps: Advance Task Killer and Green Power PRO. Once you tweek Green Power Pro and use ATK often enough, your battery duration will dramatically increase about 40%. And now I can go through a day of normal use (social networks, e-mails, calls, listening to music) and by night I still have around 40% of charge, which is awesome. So if you’re discouraged about the battery duration, know that there’s a way around it. And now the phone is absolutely 5 stars for me.

    NOTE: People from Mexico: YES, you can use this phone with ANY carrier (Telcel, Movistar, Iusacell), as long as it is this version, the international one. It won’t work with the LTE one (AT&T).

    Hope this info helps to all undecided, cheers.

    Is this phone real.., January 3, 2013

    This review is from: HTC One X Unlocked Gsm Phone, 16GB, Gray (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    The total space was more like 9g + 2g… The phone is unlocked, but it’s definitely not the international version. It came with AT&T branding, not the HTC one, so I’m not sure what happened to this phone before I received it. I wouldn’t recommend anyone buying this, it’s probably not going to be what you expect for the hefty price. I don’t get 4G–even when it tells me “4G.” There’s nothing I can do about this now, sadly, but for anyone else who wants to buy a phone I recommend trying to find a store instead
