By now, the One X and Galaxy S III fanboys have set up shop and are ready to wage war. If you're in the One X camp, but you prefer Sprint to AT&T, the EVO 4G LTE is what you're after. Pre-orders have gone live today. Wirefly, however, has a special deal going on today: $50 off the normal $200 price tag.
If you're looking to jump ship to Sprint, or if you're an existing customer at the end of your contract, you qualify for the discount. Read More
I've had the European version of the One X for a few weeks now and in my book, it's the best damn phone on the market right now, bar none. David spent some time with the AT&T variant (which lost some cores and storage but picked up LTE on its trip to the States) and came away equally as impressed, calling it "the best all-around Android phone you can buy in the US today."
Surprisingly, the price is entirely reasonable, too - it checks in at just $550 off contract, $200 on contract from AT&T, or $150 from Amazon Wireless. Read More
After MoDaCo's recent report that HTC's Bootloader Unlock tool didn't work for AT&T's One X variant, The Verge reached out to the Taiwanese manufacturer, and received a reply which suggested that the device has "restrictions" which prevent its bootloader from being unlockable:
HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. Since announcing our commitment to unlockable bootloaders, HTC has worked to enable our customers to unlock the bootloader on more than 45 devices over the past six months.
A small OTA update started rolling out the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint this morning that brings but one enhancement to the device: the Sprint Connections Optimizer. Never heard of it? It's actually pretty neat.
It's basically a location-aware service that can enable/disable Wi-Fi and WiMax based on user defined variables (much like Tasker or Locale). For example, it can automatically turn on Wi-Fi when it knows you're at home or the office. Read More
That's a lofty claim, isn't it? Isn't there a new "next generation" every year? Well, to answer that last question, not always. But technology is evolving at such a rapid pace in the mobile world that we can scarcely buy a phone today without something better coming out a month later. And today, just days from Samsung's announcement of the next Galaxy phone, everyone is watching with bated breath to see what comes next. Read More
In recent memory, there are only 2 phones I've been as excited to lay my hands on as the One X, and those are the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II. There's a good reason for my excitement: this is the first phone to pack Nvidia's excellent Tegra 3 CPU. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, really; other touted features - such as the amazing unibody design, ultra high-quality camera, and beautiful screen - help build upon that excitement.

With the upcoming release of AT&T's HTC One X, many people are wondering how it compares to the international version, which packs NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 instead of Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon S4. One user out in YouTubeLand happened to get their hands on both variants and decided to boot them up simultaneously, as well as run AnTuTu Benchmark to see how they compare head-to-head.
While I realize that benchmarks are definitely not a definitive answer to how well the device performs, they do give a rough idea of what the device is capable of. Read More
HTC's One X is hands-down the best smartphone released this year. While the version we're seeing here in the States (on AT&T, to be specific) isn't quite the beast the quad-core version found overseas is, the AT&T variant does pack LTE. Other specs:
- 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU (Krait architecture)
- 4.7" 720p display (1280x720)
- 16GB memory
- 1GB RAM
- 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
- Full 1080p HD video recording at 60fps
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Android 4.0.x
- Sense 4.0
Thankfully, those cutting-edge specs aren't going to break your budget, either: the phone is now available for pre-order on Amazon Wireless for $150 for both the gray and white models - that's $50 less than you'll pay to get it straight from AT&T. Read More
HTC, keeping up with its recent pattern of speedy source release, has dropped official ICS kernel source code for a heaping handful of devices, perhaps most notably the One V, a member of HTC's new One line which hasn't yet debuted in many countries.
Other devices include the US variant of the Vivid and several iterations of the Sensation, with the Desire HD and myTouch 4G Slide's Gingerbread (2.3) kernel source also being dropped. Read More
In a fascinating new video titled "Get to know the HTC EVO 4G LTE," HTC explains the ins and outs of Sprint's One X variant, from the conceptualization of its design, to decisions surrounding build quality, materials, and a pretty interesting explanation of the new EVO's soft-touch unibody form.
Senior Director of Advanced Materials Chris Porter details the EVO's soft-touch feel in the video, explaining that the device has a "warm, velvety, soft-touch feel as opposed to a harder, rougher, cold metal feel." Porter explains that creating the effect involves sand/grit-blasting the device's frame, followed by a light chemical etching process to remove the sharp "peaks." The EVO's design also utilizes around 100 custom-designed machine cutters, used to create exactly the right geometry and feel for each device. Read More
