This year Galaxy S2 cant even come close to the new king HTC One X. HTC have finally managed to produce a phone that provides the true performance and have managed to beat Samsung by releasing their first quad core device.
Looks And Feel
The moment you hold the device in your hand it feels so sleek and smooth. The phone doesn’t feel heavy at all despite its size and the phone weighs just 130g with dimensions of 134.4 x 69.9 x 8.9 mm. HTC have managed to produce a real looker. The phone features a polycarbonate unibody design and also the cornering gorilla glass makes the phone very comfortable to hold.
The unibody design means the battery is non-removable but the battery is quoted at 1800mAH and that is enough to power the phone all day long and also you don’t have to charge it too often all thanks to the new processor architecture and also the fifth core that is designed to handle the daily tasks.
The real beauty of the phone lies in its 4.7inch HD Super LCD2 display which sports a resolution of 1280×720. The pictures appear crisp and sharp and also the device is a proper multimedia powerhouse because watching videos is a pleasant surprise in such a brilliant display.
The viewing angles are also good but cant come close to the viewing angles that are offered by the Super AMOLED display’s. Also the sunlight legibility is pretty good.

In the previous phones the Sense UI used to lag every so often but in this version its much more lighter and feels very snappy.
