    HTC was quick on the draw with quad-core smartphones, getting its One X to market well in advance of Samsung and LG's quad-core entries. Since then, we've seen models like the Droid Incredible 4G LTE arrive, but nothing really up there on the same level as the One X. Well, HTC may be planning to one-up itself with its model PM63100, revealed through some benchmark figures and sporting some decent hardware. According to the data published over at GLBenchmark, the PM63100 goes by the codename "evitareul"; that may be supposed to be read as Evitare UL, implying some sort of evolutionary step ...

    1.8GHz is still a frequency unfortunately many computer users dream about but it is now achievable on the dual-core processor powering the AT&T HTC One X (and Rogers) as well as the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. Of course, before everything, we need to insert the word of warning here that extreme hacking can cause hardware damage and stress components, but you all know that! The new Kernel module allows overclocking the MSM8960 Qualcomm Krait SoC beyond 1.8GHz in applications like SetCPU so you need to be cautious. It only works on the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X (or the One XL) as well as ...

    I've turned an HTC One X into one of my two daily drivers for the last two or three weeks. Not that I didn't enjoy the company of my old Galaxy Nexus, but I'm on the list of people that really do enjoy HTC Sense. I know it's either a love-or-hate relationship for many of you, but Sense is the best of many worlds for me. It has all the social integration I love about Windows Phone 7, all the polish that attracts me about iOS, and it’s running on the fluidity and openness that I've come to enjoy about Android. Sadly, the year is 2012. For many of you that are using Windows Phone devices or ...

    Now that the beast is out of the cage and Google announced all the good stuff Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings to devices, those rocking Verizon and GSM Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus devices can already start playing with the new version of Google's mobile operating system. However, those who own HTC's flagship, the One X, can also join the Jelly Bean party -- consume responsibly though! The ROM Image is based on the Android 4.1 build for the Galaxy Nexus and has a couple of glitches (like WiFi, audio, camera and some more) but if will surely serve the purpose of learning the bits that make up ...

    Last week, we heard about some issues with WiFi connectivity that some owners of HTC's One X had been running into. Unlike many of the connectivity problems we hear about from time to time, where there's some annoying software bug at the heart of the issue, this time the evidence seemed to point to a hardware failure. Users whose phones were suffering the effects of this problem had noticed that putting a little pressure in the right spot of the phone's case seemed to restore a strong WiFi signal, pointing to a loose connection between the WiFi antenna and the phone's circuitry. At the ...

    Lately, HTC has been talking about focusing its efforts on a limited number of higher-end smartphones, distancing itself from the kind of lower-tier models that have been part of its lineup in the past. In a recent interview, CEO Peter Chou reiterated this sentiment, discussing the company's desire to use "better materials to make better products that offer premium experience". Is that what it's doing, though? There's nothing wrong with concentrating your efforts on a small number of top-tier devices, just like Apple does. For that to be successful, though, those few models really need to ...

    HTC's One X is no stranger to problems with its WiFi connection, and last month we learned of a software issue that was leading to problems with message notifications. While something like that is easily fixable via update, the situation's very different when a problem is caused by issues with the phone's hardware. Unfortunately, it now appears that the One X is also suffering from just such a problem, and one that's again interfering with the phone's WiFi connection. The root cause of the problem is unclear, but what a group of One X users over on the XDA-Developers forums have managed to ...

    Four months ago, we heard some rumors that HTC might be the first manufacturer to join Sony's phones as PlayStation Certified Androids, granting them access to Sony's curated app store. This week, we see those claims come true, with Sony officially announcing the phones of HTC's One series as the first of that manufacturer's devices to enter the program. Is this a boon for Android gamers, though, or just another example of Android fragmentation? When we heard those old rumors, we wondered if HTC might be developing some Xperia Play-like hardware, and this one new model would be its ...

    So far we have unboxed the Samsung Galaxy S III and we've compared it with last year's Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S II as its predecessor, but today we're putting it to some more work. It's going to be a tough fight because the Samsung Galaxy S III is up against the hottest HTC phone of the moment, the HTC One X. We're comparing specs, day-to-day/real-life usage/application launch speeds, benchmarks, internet browsing performance, gaming as well as the SLCD2 screen versus the HD Super AMOLED screen. You will also see a 1080p video recording comparison between the two so sit back and ...

    After getting news of HTC Android shipments being held-up in customs on their into the US, we heard from the manufacturer that progress had been made towards resolving the situation, and sure enough, eventually saw the EVO 4G LTE start making it into the hands of customers. Today, HTC is announcing a full resolution of these import issues. Last week, HTC released a statement reading, "some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators' clients in the US". As a result, we could see that the tide was turning in HTC's favor, but it wasn't clear at ...

    The HTC One X on AT&T got rooted two weeks ago but that didn't allow users to experiment with custom ROMs. Unfortunately HTC didn't offer an official bootloader unlocking solution (just yet) and we've tried to see just why they won't do it. However, this didn't stop (it never stops) the community and its fine developers from working on a solution and they have found one! After you get passed all the warnings in bold that scream "you're doing this at your own risk" you can actually follow a twelve-step walkthrough at the end of which you will hopefully have an unlocked bootloader on ...

    The AT&T HTC One X and Sprint EVO 4G LTE (plus probably the T-Mobile Amaze 4G) were affected by U.S. Customs reviews and were delayed from the shelves because of an ITC ban imposed in defense of an Apple patent. The ban came into effect on April 19 and the manufacturer as well as the operators couldn't tell anything specific regarding a timeframe for resolving the issue. According to recent reports, HTC has issued a statement in Taiwan that brings some relieving information: "Some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators’ clients in the ...

    Under pressure from the community, HTC announced they would begin to offer tools to unlock the bootloaders on "their" phones. Over the past six months they've made significant inroads and have "allowed" the unlocking of a great deal of "their" devices. I know I'm being liberal with the quotation marks, but once you buy the phone, isn't it your phone? Neither HTC nor AT&T force you to call your mom for exactly 15 minutes every seven days, nor do they tell you that you can't call your mom more than once a week. Absurd, you say? Why would a carrier or a manufacturer force you to do ...

    Regardless if you're rocking an international / unlocked HTC One X or you're waiting patiently for your AT&& version to arrive, you will probably notice a little bit of lag while paying attention to HTC's Sense 4.0 custom user interface running on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We noticed it too with the occasion of our international HTC One X and the AT&T HTC One X reviews. Those who are heavy tweakers/modders are probably familiar with Rosie; not a "she", but an "it", a mod which aims to eliminate that slight lag we told you about. As the author of the mod himself ...

    HTC Sense 4.0 is the company's latest iteration for custom UIs which we first met at MWC, as it was launched on the new One line. It is present on all One-series phone which includes the International One X as well as the AT&T version. Of course, playing with Sense 4.0 for a while, beyond the good looks and deep integration, made us realize that there are a couple of things we'd change with the custom UI but the folks over at XDA Developers are not satisfied with the way HTC implemented multi-tasking. It's not necessarily about the webOS-like card look instead of the default Ice Cream ...

    The HTC One X for AT&T and the upcoming HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint -- which should hit the shelves this Friday, May 18 -- appear to be delayed by U.S. Customs, according to an official statement released by the Taiwanese manufacturer. The reason behind the delay, according to the wording, is "standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order". "The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with ...

    When Samsung announced the Galaxy S III, the hype had already built to an unsustainable level. The buzz was pushing fans to expect incredible new hardware, artificial intelligence and a phone with a clean, crisp taste that won't fill you up and never lets you down. So when the device Samsung unveiled on May 3rd turned out to be little more than an iteration of the Galaxy S II with a pebble-inspired casing and a bevy of dubiously useful software features, some were disappointed. For the record, I'd like to say that I wasn't one of them. Though Samsung's presentation was fragmented and ...

    While we didn't find any deal-breaking bugs on the AT&T HTC One X with the occasion of our review, some users who grabbed their unit early experienced issues related to WiFi connectivity and speed. There were also some messaging notification problems with the phone (and not only) but HTC seems to have acted quickly with regards to the WiFi issue. "In regards to the wifi issue your running into, this is currently an issue that has been brought to our attention and we are actively working on a fix for this. We don't have an ETA on the release of the fix yet, but we do have a work around in ...

    If you haven't noticed, AT&T has really turned up the heat in advertising its latest smartphone heavyweights. Now feeling the pressure from two other iPhone-carrying competitors, it's working hard to maintain a diversified smartphone portfolio, and it's doing a pretty good job of it, too. In line with that goal, AT&T has been heavily marketing its version of the HTC One X, as well as the Nokia Lumia 900. Of course, those of us who make the mobile industry our occupation, hobby, or obsession know the differences between these two high-end devices, but most people don't. So if you're ...

    There were some discussions regarding HTC's support (or lack of) for the One X on AT&T in terms of the company not unlocking the bootloader of the American version but now the device has been unofficially rooted by the community. While you will still not get access to the bootloader, at least you will now be able to have root access on your phone for all those mods waiting to be applied. It's still something to help you get through the waiting for custom ROMs and whatnot. If root is something you need to have on your AT&T (and not only) HTC One X and you understand the risks, head over to ...

    Regardless if you have an international HTC One X or its U.S. variant on AT&T, you might be among the unlucky few to have messaging notification problems. Seems like the bug doesn't notify you at all of an incoming text and the only way to see if you have a new SMS is by going into the messaging application. HTC is reportedly aware of the issue which is affecting a "very small number" of owners for both the international version and the AT&T variant. The Taiwanese phone maker already has an update in the works which is supposed to fix this issue but a timeframe for the roll-out process is ...

    You've been researching a new smartphone or tablet, looked all over, checked out your favorite technology website, and have finally decided on one particular device. Sure, it doesn't have everything you want, but it's got 95%, and you figure that's good enough. A month or so passes after it's announced you find it on your carrier, but it's changed... What?! How dare they! That's bait and switch! Well, maybe not. The world is a big place and things aren't the same everywhere. Different areas of the world use different frequencies for their mobile telephony and data -- some countries even ...

    HTC's "One X" for AT&T in the States – more accurately the One XL – arrived as the company's model PJ83100. We saw FCC documentation for the phone land back at the beginning of March, complete with the expected support for AT&T's LTE bands. Today, the paperwork for another HTC model graces the halls of the Commission, and one that seems like it could be another regional variant of that same handset. Referred to here as the PJ83110, the model number alone has us thinking this could be another One XL. The reported band coverage doesn't look like something we'd see intended for release in ...

    Shoppers perusing AT&T's website in search of a smartphone will find a slew of options, numbering 36 devices in all. Of these, a surprising 21 are Android phones. I say "surprising" because AT&T has never been known for their compelling Android lineup. Maybe it's a side effect of years of iPhone exclusivity; maybe it's the lack of a unified brand image like Verizon's DROID campaign. Or maybe it's because, with a few exceptions like the Galaxy Note, AT&T's never had a truly unique Android phone to showcase. With its gorgeous display, unique materials, and a design guaranteed to ...

    The international HTC One X has 32GB of internal storage and a quad-core nVidia Tegra 3 SoC. The HTC One X on AT&T has a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor because the Tegra 3 doesn't play nicely yet with LTE. Still, why isn't there 32GB of internal storage on AT&T's version? You'd probably say it's because it is an HTC One XL which AT&T decided (for obvious reasons) to market as the One X. However, according to HTC Australia, the HTC One XL has indeed 32GB of internal storage, just like the One X. We have several scenarios here: (1) the standard is 32GB but AT&T decided to place ...
