HTC One X For AT&T First Impressions


HTC’s One X has been out for awhile now, we even have a couple reviews up of the international version. One thing we do not have, however, is anything on the AT&T model, available here in the US. It’s been out for a few weeks now, but that’s not going to stop us from putting it through the paces. The nice FedEx man brought me the device at about 9 this morning, and I’ve been using it ever since. Here are some of my first impressions:

  • This device is absolutely gorgeous. I have the white version, and its design is the best I’ve seen from HTC since the Nexus One.
  • The display is still the star of the show, and the best to date from any manufacturer
  • AT&T’s LTE network is not yet live where I live, so I’ve been restricted to HSPA+. That’s not a bad thing, as my first test brought speeds of around 6Mbps down and 3Mbps up.
  • The camera is identical to the one on the EVO 4G LTE I reviewed last month, but there’s no camera button. I miss that camera button.
  • Among my friends that I let see the device, 90% of their first reactions were along the lines of “it’s huge”.
  • I’ve yet to experience any form of stuttering or lag

 
I’ve thrown my personal SIM card into the device, and will be using it for the next two weeks. At that time I’ll give it my final review, and how it holds up to use the phone for 2 weeks.

Have any questions about the device? Feel free to tweet me @jlehto43, or leave it in the comments below.
