    Many revere the HTC One X as having the best display on a smartphone: the colors are incredibly accurate and well-saturated, the contrast is just right, and the clarity is extremely high thanks to a solid pixel density. With the release of the iPhone 5 and alleged improvements to the display technology beyond what we got with the 4S, does the One X maintain its position as having the best smartphone display? In this video, we unscientifically compare the two displays of the iPhone 5 and One X and try to determine just which one is better. Which do you think is better? Is there a smartphone ...

    There's a phrase that I read for the first time about a decade ago that has stuck with me ever since. It said: "Before you show the world that you can be the first one to climb a ladder, make sure you set it on the right wall". The best way to describe HTC is by calling them the first ones at almost everything. HTC built some of the first touch screen devices we used almost 15 years ago. They built the Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC that steered the revolution that has allowed our website to exist. They were one of the first companies to successfully merge a phone with a PDA even before the term ...

    At last, a preview of the Jelly Bean-based CyanogenMod 10 has been released for the HTC One X! This indeed fixes our number one problem with the One X cited in the review: lag. On the One X with stock software with Sense 4.0, we found lack around every corner, which was surprising for such a high-end phone. Jelly Bean on the One X is super duper fast, whether browsing the web, opening folders, or moving between apps. In fact, we'd say that it's a pinch faster than the already-fast CyanogenMod 10 port to the Galaxy S III we recently showed you. That said, installing CM 10 on your One X is ...

    The HTC One X is one of the best smartphones in the market. It packs one of the best designs we've seen on any device in the last couple of years, and the quad-core power that we've been dreaming about since last year. Obviously devices behave one way when you buy them and differently once you fit them to your specific needs after weeks of use. Now that all the buzz is over, and after a couple of months of real-world use, it's time for another episode of After The Buzz, where we intend to answer many of the questions that we get asked all the time: Is it still worth it to buy an HTC One X ...

    I've recently learned that there are two things about being a mobile-phone reviewer. The first thing: you get to handle awesome pieces of gadgetry days or weeks ahead of their official release date, and you're not just allowed to use the heck out of them; you need to, in order to do your job. That's the awesome thing. The other, less-awesome thing: you eventually have to give them all back. "Empty Nest" is a recurring column discussing what I miss -and what I don't- about the devices I've had to return. I put the AT&T HTC One X review unit in the mail earlier this week, sending it ...

    All right everyone, we've still got a few weeks until the Galaxy S III drops, so let's just settle down and keep talking about what's available today. There's still work to be done, 'na mean? One of our contenders is Google's venerable mainstay of America's "most reliable," number-one, most-red-and-black wireless network; the other is a hot young upstart looking to steal the spotlight in the name of Big-Blue-number-two. One bears a proud South Korean heritage, while the other is Taiwan's newest crown jewel! One built of plastic, one of different plastic polycarbonate! Who will claim the ...
