HTC One X Review pt.2 [video & sample photos]

This is part 2 of our hand-on review of the HTC One X. Part 1 can be found here.

As a recap, here are some specs of the device:
– 4.7-inch screen (1280 x 720 resolution)
– 1.5 GHz, quad-core
– Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4
– 32GB storage space + 1GB ram
– 8 megapixels camera with F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens
– NFC
– Records video at 1080p Full HD


In this post, we are just gonna highlight on the overall feel and usage experience of the phone and the camera.


The One X and the Sense 4.0 combined really give a great overall satisfaction in using an Android device. With the Super LCD, graphics looks sharp but does not ‘poke’ the eyes like how it would on an AMOLED screen. There was minimal lagginess and freezes, which adds up to the satisfactory usage experience.

Audio quality during a call is good, but would be better if it’s louder, same goes to the loudspeaker.

The One X front camera has a 1.3mpx sensor but often times, the camera is noisy and images are not sharp enough. The back camera however, performs well with the 8mpx sensor even under low light. Photos produced are clear but not super sharp. Colours are not saturated enough (though it may look vibrant on the screen).

We really like the ability to capture photos during a video recording. This assures that we do not miss a photo moment when the phone is recording a video.

Here are some sample shots from the HTC One X back camera, unedited. Click to enlarge.

    I am facing screen flickering issues on my 2 weeks old HTC One X which apparently is a known issue in this phone.. Awaiting for the new firmware 1.9 which HTC claimed that it will be able to fix the screen flickering issue… Geezz!
