This is a tremendously powerful, intuitive and functional smartphone. Forget that it’s Android for a moment. Look at it from a user experience perspective: this is one of few smartphones that you can just pick up and use without having to fiddle with settings, widgets and apps.

With its 720p display, a quad-core processor, modern and elegant body and a powerful sense 4.0 user interface, HTC has created the most attractive device with Google's mobile OS.
Want your web content and mobile videos to be on the large and sharp side? If so, look no further than the HTC One X smartphone. It's got a large 4.7" multi touch screen with support for high-definition (720p) resolution and it looks great.
What about the sound? Well, the onboard Beats Audio provides a rich and authentic sound experience due to its advanced software equalizer with a preset optimized for higher quality sound output. Unfortunately, Beats Audio compatible headphones are not provided with the kit. The phone also comes with a standard-sized stereo audio jack (3.5mm) and a loud-speaker.
A powerful 1.5 Ghz Quad-core supplies the processing (available with global edition) and the 1 GB RAM is enough for most applications. There is 32 GB of on-board (non-removable) storage.
The main camera has a 8 megapixel resolution and you can record high definition videos thanks to 1080p HD video recording capabilities. The front camera is a 1 megapixel camera and should work well for high quality video chatting. Other notable video features include the ability to capture a photo while the phone is recording a video, a separate video recording button to start recording video instantly and a slow motion video recording mode for those aspiring short film makers. And, when you are ready to show off your film, you can connect your phone to Hi-def displays using an HDMI connector.
The One X has a number of fancy sensors. There is an ambient light sensor that can adjust the screen brightness according to the exposure of direct light on the screen. There is a proximity sensor that turns off the touchscreen if your ear is too close to the display. There is a gyro sensor which can sense the tilt of the phone in your hand and tilt the display accordingly. And, there is even a digital compass to aid with navigation.
