HTC One X+

The One X was already a well-regarded phone – yes, even more respected than the late Sherman Hemsley’s dancing prowess – but HTC is refusing to sit idle on this model. The One X+  is a refreshed version of the One X, now featuring Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and an upgraded 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip. Storage capacity has been doubled to 64GB, and HTC promises its LTE version is faster than George Jefferson’s feet.


Looking to spiffy things up (our phrase, not theirs), HTC is readying the new flagship One X for AT&T customers. The 1.5-gigahertz dual-core processor and Android 4.0 are certainly appreciated, but it’s the phone’s sexy 4.7-inch 720p, “Super LCD 2” panel that has people like us taking notice. The One X won’t be HTC’s thinnest phone (that award goes to the One S at just 7.6-millimeters thick), but at just 9.7-millimeters, the super-sharp panel is more than an even trade-off. Unibody polycarbonate makes up the backing, broken up only by the 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture. Plus, it also comes in a crisp white color that rivals any suit at a P. Diddy White Party.
