Pros Fast performance, great camera and great screen!
Cons Low battery life, but isn't noticable.
Summary An amazing phone, one that deserves to be in the top 5.
Pros No pros for me. This phone is definitely amped up!!!
Cons Everything. I almost purchased the galaxy note 2, but I am very excited with my choice. The phone is performing like a heavyweight champion.
Summary I am a techie kind of person and I took some time on reviewing the galaxy when at the very last minute I came across this phone. Then after viewing the specs. I said am sold. I highly recommend this phone to any and everyone. HTC really needs to put some money in advertising this item.
Pros Right size & weight. Shifted fr 5' screen to this. Like the length-width of One X+ vs skinny One.
Blazing fast. One X+ passed my litmus test: Skype w/video. Didn't crash & good call quality.
No more wrong time. Props to new Android softwar
Cons It gets hot esp when I play games.
The battery life runs out but I found a fix. Put it on sleep mode by lightly pressing the power button.
Summary I don't have phone envy anymore.
Some more pros:
1. Camera on HDR mode produced amazing photos
2. FM radio. I prefer the regular FM radio over streaming.
3. 64 GB memory. I back up my files on this phone
4. Free Dropbox
5. Volume can really go loud
1. Front camera makes lousy selfies
Pros Beautiful display (720p is MORE THAN fine)
64GB storage as standard
Great Music Player app
Great in-hand feel (doesn't need a case, as the body of the phone feels like a case already, and is very rugged)
Sense 4+ is great
Cons Battery life not great
GPS not great
Phone overheats occasionally
Speaker not loud enough
Summary The HTC One X+ is an AWESOME phone, and I love it. Yes, it has its bad points, but doesn't everything? This phone never got much recognition. It was kind of conceived as a late-2012 reboot of the original One X, tweaked to better compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III. It is now overshadowed bythe new One, which is ccertainly a great phone as well, but as an owner of BOTH, I must confess that there are still things about the One X+ that I prefer over the One:
1) Build quality & materials: While the new One is beautiful, and is made of top quality materials, I must confess that in many ways, I actually prefer the in-hand feel of the One X+. It's got softer edges, and is easier on the hand. It also is a lot more rugged, and doesn't feel as fragile, or as susceptible to damage as the new One. I don't feel like I have to have a case on the One X+, as its body feels like a case already, is less susceptible to scratches, and (because it's made of polycarbonate), won't dent.
2) Sense 4+: Dare I say, I think I actually prefer Sense 4+ to Sense 5! While I certainly appreciate the evolution & modernization of the design elements, many things, to me, are preferable in Sense 4+: The keyboard, the widgets, the customization ability, the absence of BlinkFeed (BlinkFeed isn't BAD, but it should be optional), the task manager...
3) Standard 3 capacative buttons instead of 2 (missing Multitasking button) on the new One: I can't imagine why they would get rid of that.
So, overall, the One X+ is still a DAMN good phone. And you can probably get it for a song now that everyone's attention is so squarely focused on the new One. Don't overlook this gem!
Pros Great screen resolution. Camera is very good. Fast with 4G. 64 GB of space. Beats audio.
Cons Screen is a smudge magnet. Call quality and phone speaker. AT$T. Drops calls and loses connection. Accessories are expensive and difficult to find. HTC Sync Manager. GPS. Eats up SIM cards.
Summary I really like this phone for many reasons. The camera for still photographs is very good. I recently used the camera for a work project and was very pleased with the detail it provided. The video camera is very nice. The processor is fast with 4G and WiFi. The screen resolution for HD movies from Ultraviolet was very good. 64GB of space is actually more like 55GB when you subtract the AT&T bloatware and systems files but that still is plenty of room for movies, music and files. Beats audio and the bluetooth sound clip for car or stereo does sound very good on most music. Some music seems a little weak in the mid range and overlt tweaked on the high end, but all in all nice sound.
I don't like this phone for just that it's voice quality. When I did my research I was looking at reviews from a practical I am going to use this as a phone perspective and this phone got pretty good reviews. What I have found is that the incoming calls when placed on speaker are tinny and sometimes difficult to understand. Outgoing calls on speaker sound similar to people on other end. In the six weeks I've had this phone it has dropped telephone calls and network connections frequently. I have been to AT&T three times with this phone and I have gone through two SIM cards. AT&T store personnel say it is the SIM card and the phone and have authorized a replacement of the phone. Therein lies my issue with AT&T they will replace this six week old phone with a refurbished phone. So in short I am going to get someone elses problem phone which has "been inspected and repaired by HTC." Got to love AT&T. Car accessories for this phone are tough to find and expensive. I purchased the HTC 3.5mm bluetooth adaptor which is excellent in streaming music to my car stereo BUT will not stream telephone to car speakers. It will stream turn by turn directions from Google Maps, kind of strange. HTC Sync is not horrible just not all that good. This phone screen is a smudge magnet and needs to be cleaned often.
In closing this is a nice phone but the quality issues and AT$T bring the rating from a 4.5 down to a 3 and the 3 is generous.
