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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
You might recall that we’re not particularly fond of HTC Sense 4.0, because in a lot of places, it holds back Ice Cream Sandwich, which is already elegant, functional, and fast. With Android’s fantastic ability to change the launcher (meaning: the entire homescreen/app drawer experience), those running Sense 4.0 (or any undesireable stock launcher) can opt for something better. We’ve shown you options in the past such as Laucher Pro, ADW Launcher EX, Go Launcher EX, and others. Today, we’re going to add a new one to the list: Apex Launcher, which is free in [...]
On Monday, we heard a rumor that AT&T and HTC might be announcing the US retail launch details for the One X (XL) on Tuesday, followed by a launch later in the week. Tuesday came and went without a peep out of either company on the matter, making it appear that the rumor was busted. Little did we know that it was just off in the details, and today we finally get the official word from AT&T on just how the One X will arrive.
It also looks like those rumors about the One X hitting retail in just a matter of days was off as well. Instead of getting the phone later this [...]
On April 18 we found out details about the AT&T HTC One X, namely that it will arrive on May 6 with pre-orders starting on April 22. And, since today is April 22, you can now head to AT&T’s webpage and secure yourself a unit.
It will cost you $199.99 with a two-year contract, just as much as you’ll pay when the phone will be available. If you don’t wish to sign a contract then it will be $549.99 but you get a huge 4.7-inch HD screen to go with that 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. To find out more about the phone check out our review of the [...]
The HTC One X has been out for just a little while after its official introduction at this year’s MWC and the Taiwanese manufacturer is already pushing out an update to its flagship.
The software version will be bumped to 1.28 after you apply the OTA update which might be only unveiled if you manually check for its existence. As far as the changes are concerned, it’s still the same Android 4.0.3 at its core but there are a couple of fixes regarding for instance the Menu key in certain Google apps and tweaks which should deliver better battery life. If you have an [...]
We know that plenty of you have been anticipating the retail launches of the HTC One X and One S in the States. Sure, you could import an international version of the One X (and the quad-core version, at that), but then you’d miss out on support for AT&T’s LTE bands. We’ve heard a lot of rumors about both these phones, and with their expected launches approaching, some additional rumors and evidence have come to our attention with the hopes of confirming some launch details.
April 25 is one date that’s been tied to release of the One S, but [...]
The HTC One X, the Taiwanese phone maker’s flagship Android phone, has a “fantastic” “infinity screen”, as Brandon concluded in our review. However, some owners are having issues with the phone.
If you head over to the XDA Developers thread at the source link below you will see that people are complaining about screen flickering. There are also some reports of backlight flickering too and, while some have the issues, others can’t reproduce them. There’s also a theory according to which this is all just a driver problem and an [...]
HTC’s One X is supposed to have this fantastic new camera, but when it came down to us actually testing the phone out, we found its imaging capabilities somewhat underwhelming. Granted, there are plenty of people out there who are big fans of the camera, but if you’re among those of us who were hoping to get a little bit more out of the sensor, some new software might bring your salvation. A tweaked camera app has been released for the One X, offering some new options for high quality photography.
The HQ Camera For One X mod is all about pushing the phone’s [...]
We just showed you one modification users can make to their HTC One X handsets in order to eke a little extra performance out of their cameras. While that sounded like good news for users really obsessed with image quality (and especially those who plan on shooting a lot of 1080p video), we just heard about another One X mod that’s arguably a whole lot more useful; making a few simple adjustments to your phone’s software is supposedly capable of delivering a 10-20% improvement in battery life.
After poking through the HTC One X’s file system, one developer [...]
Choice is good, and HTC is offering three of them for those wanting to take home one of their new One series of devices. HTC’s One line represents a refreshed focus on the software experience and build quality. Essentially, HTC wants to reclaim the ground it lost in 2011 to Samsung and others, and its One series is its strategy for doing so. Its flagship One X is one of the most beautiful pieces of technology to come to market in a long time, but it’s not inexpensive. For the budget-minded, HTC also has the One V, which incorporates the keystone features of the flagship, [...]
When Sprint decided that it wanted its customers to have access to HTC’s One XL, it could have done things the easy way, having HTC pop a radio compatible with its network into the same phone everyone else is getting. Instead, we saw the carrier work with the manufacturer to come up with the HTC EVO 4G LTE, tweaking the One XL design with a larger battery, microSD support, and new case construction. Sprint hasn’t yet revealed when the phone will arrive with any more certainty than sometime before the end of the quarter, but we’ve heard rumors more specifically looking [...]
The HTC One X is currently the Taiwanese manufacturer’s flagship device and it’s safe to say that it is the best Android phone money can buy at the moment of this post — of course, we’re still ahead of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III announcement.
“Canada’s first LTE smartphone with Beats Audio Integration” is already up for pre-order, going for $169.99 on a three-year contract, but it looks like the phone will be released on April 20. As you can see in the image leaked above, the date seems to be plausible. Given we’re [...]
HTC’s One XL will soon be coming to AT&T in the States as the One X, but just when could we hope to see it arrive? So far, the carrier’s withheld the date on which retail availability will begin, leaving us with only rumors. One of the most recent to target the One X’s release date came from someone who’d pre-ordered the handset through Best Buy, only to be later told via e-mail that the phone’s expected availability had changed, and the model wouldn’t be available until May 6. Today, though, we get news that we may not have to wait quite that [...]
We have to admit that the makers of Instagram are doing an excellent job in keeping the Android version up to date, rolling out one update after the other since the app’s debut in the Google Play Store. However, despite all updates, users of HTC’s flagship phone were still not able to use the offering, that is until now.
Version 1.0.4 of Instagram increases device support for the app’s built-in camera and filters and that list now supports HTC’s One X, in addition to improved support for other nVidia Tegra 3 devices. Also in the package are bug fixes for [...]
HTC is trying to make a comeback this year. Their One series of devices represents their biggest effort yet to make a competitive, compelling Android experience. And with the One series of devices we get Sense 4.0. There’s very much a love/hate sentiment when it comes to Sense: it improves the appearance of Android in a lot of cases, but it has also been blamed for providing too much visual flair at the expense of efficiency and consistency. It used to be that Android badly needed Sense, that is, before Ice Cream Sandwich was released. But with Android 4.0, Google has redoubled [...]
HTC lost its magic in 2011. It released too many phones, many of which were uninspired, plus it got overshadowed by Samsung with the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note. But this year, HTC plans to reverse its misfortunes, starting with the One line of devices. The HTC One series brings forth an improved Sense UI experience, an “amazing” camera, and a redoubled attention to detail in hardware design. The HTC One X, powered by the mighty quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, is the highest-end device in the One series, and the most impressively-spec’ed Android phone to date. Is it good [...]
Yesterday, we checked out some rumors about upcoming smartphones for Sprint, including a model referred to as the HTC Jet. Supposedly the phone wouldn’t arrive until June, and very little detail about its capabilities was provided. We may be about to get the official story on the phone even sooner than expected, as Sprint has just sent-out invitations to a press event it’s holding with HTC, where the the companies intend to share their “latest collaboration”.
The only Jet specs mentioned by the rumor’s source include NFC capabilities and inclusion [...]
A 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution, eight-megapixel camera, 1.3 megapixel front facer, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0 on top of it is what seems to be packed inside the HTC EVO ONE, Sprint’s variant of the HTC One series.
We’ve already seen pres shots of the upcoming device — which will hopefully be unveiled later on today — but the folks over at Android Life managed to get their hands-on the device. Aside from the pictures they snapped (above, below and at the source link), they were impressed with the overall buttery smooth [...]
When Sprint finally launches its 4G LTE network, which could be as soon as mid-next-month, we know to expect an LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus as well as the LG Viper. Beyond those, we’ve been hearing a lot about the possibility to see an HTC-made LTE model hit Sprint. First we talked about the rumored HTC Jewel, and later the name HTC Jet was tied to a leaked roadmap. We’ve had the feeling that one or both of these phones (it’s very possible both codenames have been referring to the same model) could be a Sprint version of something like the HTC One X, and when we saw [...]
Back in March, Sprint and HTC sent out invitations to a joint event planned for this afternoon. While they offered little hint about what the topic of discussion may be, the timing of the event fueled rumors that we would learn about HTC One-series hardware with support for Sprint’s upcoming LTE network. Some of the details to arrive since then have been off, including guesses at the phone’s name, but Sprint and HTC are now finally clearing the air and making everything official, announcing the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
Earlier today, we got a look at some pics of the phone [...]
Watch this week’s Android Revolution as we go through what’s hot and what’s not inside the world of Google’s Android project. In today’s show we start by discussing all the release dates and release rumors for the HTC One X, S and V, which are closer to a wallet near you. We later talk about NVIDIA’s recent affirmation that $200 Quad-core Android tablets are possible, and why. We then go through all the Verizon devices that are likely to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the next coming days. We spend some time going through this week’s [...]
