first_imgHTC has a bit of a storied history in the smartphone market. They started out as an unknown, practically upstart company that won the contract to build the first Android smartphone: the T-Mobile G1 (aka HTC Dream). From there things just kept growing for HTC, with a number of popular phones across multiple carriers. Their phones were praised for design innovation and were popular with people who like to mod their smartphones.However, as new generation phones came out in 2010 and 2011, HTC was starting to look a little dated. Their first 4G phones were little more than re-hashes of existing designs and their last phone of 2011, the HTC Rezound, was passed over by many thanks to its me-too design.Luckily HTC recognized this before it was too late and on the cusp of 2012 we were treated to the new HTC One series. The One X represents the flagship of these new phones, which are intended to save HTC from a floundering future.There is no lack of technology stuffed into this 8.9mm thin phone. Take a deep breath and go through it with me: 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 720p 4.7-inch Gorilla Glass screen, NFC, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, Beats Audio, and an f/2.0 8MP camera with 1080p video recording.Not content to stuff it full of the latest tech, HTC paid special attention to the design. The One X has a high-grade polycarbaonate shell that is light, tough, and comfortable in-hand. The overall impression is minimalist and thin, with a strong air of quality and refinement. Be sure to check out our full review of the One X.If you are in the market for a smartphone, this needs to be at the top of your list for consideration.
