I had the opportunity today to get my hands on the HTC One X, and I must say right from the start that is the best smartphone that I have ever had the privilege to use.
The first thing I noticed was the style and feel. Holding it in my hand was amazing. So light and Peter Chou said it best with saying that the HTC One X is power with a super sexy form factor. I could not say it better. You could instantly feel and see that the HTC One X went through many tests before they found the perfect style for any size hand.
I was very happy to see that HTC Sence 4.0 and Ice Cream Sandwich ran perfectly. Smooth running and the refresh rate was also incredible.
I also noticed something very cool with the Beats Audio platform. The Beats Audio platform allows you to change, inside the device, which style Beats headphones you are using to optimize your listening experience. So if you go with Beats Pro headphones then you would put on the Beats Pro sound profile. The difference is noticeable to the point where it will ruin you on other devices.
That brings me to exactly what I have been wanting to talk about. The camera. The picture quality is better than I could have expected. Not only in still shots but also with the video. I have taken plenty of video with other smartphones, and found that my hand is not steady enough, but with the HTC One X, I could barely tell. The "SLR" type camera action was awesome. I held down the capture button and in seconds it had taken over 20 shots. Talk about action shooting!! The video was also a lot of fun. You can take still shots while you are taking video at the same time. Let us say that you took some video and then realized that there were a few still shots that you would have loved to get from the video. With the HTC One X, you can get those still shots while playing back the video that you captured. On the screen during playback, there is a capture button just like when taking pictures. Could it get any easier?
The HTC One X has brought the company back to the lead with absolutely the best smartphone ever created. I always knew that the HTC One X would be impressive, I just did not think that it would blow me away. If you are looking for the most advanced, ergonomically designed, light weight, super computer to use as a smartphone, then I give you the HTC One X!! Stayed tuned for a full review of all features.
