There was quite a buzz of HTC One X when it was first announced by the company at the Mobile World Congress. In terms of features, it has a brilliant 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD2 HD display, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

The best part about HTC One X is that it employs a gorgeous unibody design. The complete surface of the phone is made from two portions, namely, polycarbonate shell and the Gorilla Glass. It feels very strong and sturdy, but it does come with few drawbacks, like inability to get rid of the battery.

The high pixel density makes the display look very sharp and the big size in addition to the bright colors make it a joy to behold. Unfortunately, because of the huge display size, it makes the phone itself pretty big and we found it really tough to use it single handedly.

Talking in terms of hardware, the One X features a 1.5GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Furthermore, it uses the new 4-PLUS-1 configuration. On the other hand, CPU has four performance cores and one companion cores. The beauty of companion core is that it consumes far less battery power. You are also going to find a 12 core GeForce GPU for 3D applications and games. Unfortunately, there is no microSD card slot.

On the software front, this latest offering from HTC comes with Android 4.0.3 with Sense 4.0. In comparison to the previous versions, Sense 4.0 us much lighter and cuts down on plenty of the frivolous animations.

Simply put, performance-wise the One X is exceptional, right from scrolling through the homescreens and opening between apps.
