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 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.
Pros Quality does matter. Design of one x+ is very attractive.
Cons No Cons in one x+.
Summary It has amazing camera and wonderful animations.
Clock+weather widget is awesome and every time weather spreads out with amazing animations and sounds.
Camera is very user-friendly and quick with 1.7 GHz processor.
Design of phone is very attractive.
It is a wonderful experience with htc.
Pros Good UI; Sense 4+ was better than I expected
Fast speed; the overclocked Tegra 3 is comparable to the S4 pro, but more power-hungry
Durable; has survived several drops
Great camera; good picture quality
Good sound quality overall
Cons Battery life a bit dodgy; standby mode drains a lot of battery
Beats Audio makes some songs sound worse
Succeeded by the One after less than 5 months of release
Tegra 3 processor struggles with unsupported 3D games
Video is compressed and choppy
Summary As my first smartphone I thought this was an amazing phone overall. The UI is very nice; much better from what I expected on HTC Sense. The screen is a beauty; the colours pop out and the brightness is great. The Android Jelly Bean OS runs very fast and smoothly. However with some 3D games the Tegra 3 struggles and lags; it typically only works well with Tegra 3-optimized games.correction: Sorry I meant to say 1.6 MP front camera. Also while the rear camera is choppy the front camera records very smooth 720p video.
The camera is very good and comparable with a point-and-shoot of similar resolution. However, some users have noted that its image quality is slightly worse than the original HTC One X. This can be explained by the fact that the original One X had a Samsung sensor while the One X+ uses an Omnivision sensor. However, the image processing chip itself seems to also overprocess the image as there is a lot of noise reduction and oversharpness applied. Video quality is disappointing as the video frame rate is choppy and has a lower bitrate than the original One X. Compression artifacts are quite obvious. Audio capture is very good although it sounds muddy unless you use Beats Audio (one area where Beats actually works pretty well). The front camera is only 1.9 MP but pretty good for its resolution
There have been some complaints about the sound quality of previous Tegra 3 devices including the original international One X. Many users complained about distortion and hissing. Some reviewers have commented that is greatly improved in the One X+, while others still notice hissing. Although I've not listened to previous devices, I can say that the audio for the One X+ is very good; there is a little bit of hissing from the audio chip but the sound is not distorted, turn off Beats Audio if you notice any distortion. Beats Audio works fine overall but I generally prefer the more flat audio response without beats. On larger headphones like my Panasonic HTX7, the One X+ does not play as much volume in the music and Beats boosts the volume well enough, but it also adds audio artifacts. Listening to Viva La Vida by Coldplay, I noticed this "zigzag" string vibrato that is not there when I use the same headphones on the computer. You can't really hear the bells either, so much for the lyrics "I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing"! With in-ear headphones such as my Klipsch S4, the One X+ sounds very good at maximum volume. The dynamic range isn't as good as my iPad 2 and the lows and highs roll off a bit; though I think the bass roll-off makes the bass much "tighter" instead of bloaty. For my HTX7s I use JetAudio with a slight bit of preamp. Overall I think the One X+ is very good as a portable music player though you don't really need Beats Audio.
Battery lasts me around 8-10 hours thoughI am typically a WiFi user. On LTE with moderate use (ie browsing, listening to music and playing some games it lasts me 6-8 hours, better than some of the reports online. Standby mode drains the most out of the battery.
Despite some shortcomings the HTC One X+ is overall a great phone.
