HTC One X priced up for UK punters
Tempted by the Tegra 3 talker?
HTC's upcoming Tegra 3-based smartphone, the One X, was made available for pre-order this week as networks revealed their tariffs in a bid to pull in the punters.
The phone itself, built into a polycarbonate unibody, features the 1.5GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich. It includes a 4.7in, 1280 x 720 display, an 8Mp camera and 16GB of on-board storage. It also comes with a set of urBeats headphones.
The HTC One X will hit shelves in early April. ®
Resolution is down? I might be wrong on this, but I think this is HTC's first phone with a 720p screen resolution. Also, HTC admitted that their old 'we will build and they will buy' policy wasn't doing them any favours, so they're only releasing 3 phones this year. The X, a similar dual core job, and what looks to be an upgraded HTC legend. Looks like a decent range to me, abliet a little uninspired.
A polycarbonate unibody
Does unibody mean no user-removable battery? I really dislike that growing trend in smartphones. Call me old-fashioned, but I just don't trust anything without a hard power switch or equivalent (popping out the battery for instance).
Screen resolution is down but with a bigger screen area.
HTC assumes, 'we will build and they will buy' but just maybe they might have to think again.
Perfect for the type of person who buys a phone based on specs i.e. a chump.
Given that my HTC Sensation has the worst battery life of any phone I've ever had (even with everything non-essential switched off), how many minutes of battery life does this beast give you?
