HTC One X+ Review

Overview

One of the Best Smartphones in Market

Overview of HTC One X+

HTC One X+ lights up the sparks with its fiery quad-core processor, a splendid camera, beautiful HD screen, and subtly slim chassis. Though there are some striking similarities between HTC One X and HTC One X+, there’s no denying that the best just got even better. Contemplating at the short-comings of HTC One X, the Taiwanese multinational is back with a state-of-the-art phone which can give a tougher fight to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S3, Note 2, and iPhone 5 in the market. Does HTC One X+ stretch the boundaries of high-end smartphone computing even further or does it fall just short? Well, here’s the deal.

Design and Build Quality

HTC One X+ comes with a beautiful minimalist, iconic unibody design- the same which had been ported to HTC One X. The build quality of One X+ is also robust; thanks to its well-tailored polycarbonate fibred chassis. Weighing a modest 135g, it’s extremely light-weight and easy to hold. One X+ flaunts a 4.7 inch Super LCD2 capacitive Touchscreen technology, which renders images at an eye-pleasing resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It embeds a 2.5 D Gorilla Glass curved screen that flows around the phone’s edges, thereby providing wide-viewing angles and improving the resistance of screen to occasional scratches. Overall, the design of HTC One X+ is sophisticated and classy. Unlike some smartphones which feel cheap in hands, HTC One X+ with its stylish and premium looks leaves you all the bragging rights. It’s the kind of smartphone you won't resist not showing off.

User Interface and Comfort to Use HTC One X+

HTC One X+ rolls out with Android 4.1.1- Jelly Bean and HTC Sense 4+ - the latest version of HTC Sense Technology. The 4+ technology provides smoother operations, improved performance, and enhanced battery life. The text and the images have been optimized to look crisper and easier to read. The multi-tasking on HTC One X+ is smooth, with the phone not lagging even the slightest, even while running high-performance apps. The improved performance can be accredited to the One X+’s quad cores clocked at 1.7GHz and 1 GB or RAM and the smoothness of Project butter in Android Jellybeans.

Telephony and Phonebook

HTC One X+ comes pre-installed with apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Hotmail and Dropbox. Just log-in with your account and it would start syncing your contacts with their respective accounts. The images of the contacts in your phonebook would be pulled through all the social-media accounts you have logged in your phone. The Sense 4+ provides a well-designed communication centre, which allows you to manage everything from phone, people, groups and call history. Needless to say, One X+ offers unlimited storage of contacts, and also allows you to merge and backup your contacts.

Messaging and Emails

Once you’ve setup your accounts with One X+, it would autonomously start fetching your mails from your mailbox. You can also configure more than one email accounts with the default email application ported into One X+. When it comes to messaging, HTC has revamped the typing interface. It has removed the annoying arrow keys which came with HTC One X, and designed a better spaced key-board, which allows you to type faster and accurately.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

HTC One X+ comes loaded with the stock Android gallery, which allows you to view and organize your photos and videos. The stock photo-viewer allows you to zoom, pan, rotate and edit your photos. The video player plays anything from MKV, MP4, AVI, to WMV. Playback of High-Definition (HD) videos on One X+ is extremely crisp and smooth. By the courtesy of its resplendent 4.7 inch screen and Beats Audio technology, One X+ delivers the best cinematic experience, albeit on a smaller screen.

HTC One X+ Music Player and FM Radio

HTC One X+ comes with the stock Android Music app, which allows you to organize playlists and play your songs. The audio quality has been vastly enhanced with the integration of Beats Audio technology, which offers the most immersive audio experience. The deeper bass levels, crisper vocals, and the detailed high notes augment the experience of watching videos or playing music on your smartphone. Though the impact of Beats Audio is only noticeable when you plug-in your headphones, One X+ definitely offers an above par Audio experience.

HTC One X+ Still Camera and Image Quality

HTC One X+ comes with the same rear 8 MP camera with LED flash that came with HTC One X. However, the front-camera has been upgraded massively from 0.3 MP to a decent 1.6 MP. One X+ captures mesmerizing images in aspect ratio of 16:9 at an ultra-high resolution of 3264x2448 pixels. The image quality is perhaps one of the best you could get from a smartphone. The camera comes with lots of advanced features like Face Detection, Auto Smile, Geo-tagging, Auto-upload, Scene modes and much more. One X+ also offers some premium camera features like- One-press continuous shooting, which allows you to fire 4 shots in one second.

Video Camera and Video Quality

There have been slight improvements in the video-recording quality of One X+ over its predecessor. One X+ now supports capturing Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) videos at 30fps, allowing you to capture the reality in the most augmented form.

HTC One X+ Connectivity Options

HTC One X+ comes with the complete package of connectivity tools you wish your smartphone had. It supports everything from Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, to DLNA streaming support. The phone also comes with NFC technology which allows you to share files/ information just by tapping two Android devices.

Storage and Battery

HTC One X+ boasts a massive 64 GB internal memory, with no option for expandable memory. However, the massive internal storage is more than enough to store your videos, photos, and music. The only weak-point of HTC One X+, however, is the battery-life. Though HTC claims to have improved the performance of the battery, 2100 mAh battery delivers a pretty subdued performance. The battery drains quickly on regular usage, especially when you are on 3G/Wi-Fi networks. Just when we thought HTC might have just done the trick, battery back-up turns up to a complete game-spoiler.

Value for money

The phone is marketed aggressively at the price-tag of 30K (approx., may vary) in the Indian market. When you compare the price of HTC One X+ with other contemporary smartphones like S3, Optimus Prime or iPhone 5 which provide almost similar features, you surely have ‘One’ winner here.

Verdict

Undoubtedly, with the release of HTC One X+, the best just got even better. The phone delivers an extremely snappy performance, and does not lag even by the slightest of margin while operating. Over and above that, the resplendent 4.7 inch screen and the well-crafted slim chassis make it an absolute style statement. That’s where HTC One X+ wins the battle. However, performance comes at price and power. One X+’s quad core processor soaks tremendous amount of battery power, which makes your dream of having a phone which lasts at least a day long - a nightmare. The 30K price-tag (approx., may vary) would have been justifiable, provided HTC had pumped in more battery power, and provided more intuitive, eye-catching features like Direct Call, Smart Stay, etc. provided by Samsung. Though, HTC One X+ has all the potential to be the best smartphone in the world, it certainly isn’t the only ‘One’. Not yet.
