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 [...]
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.

For the record, I’d like to say that I wasn’t one of them. Though Samsung’s [...]

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.

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 [...]
