HTC One X+ - Honest Review

Updated on July 16, 2016

Phone Specification

Here is a list of the highlighted features of the phone:

  • Android Version 4.1.1 - Can be upgraded to 4.2.2
  • 4.7" Screen
  • Micro-SIM support
  • 32/64 GB Internal Space
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 MP Camera

These features make the phone a very good investment for the first few years, but as all technology does, this device has become somewhat outdated.

Positive Points

Durability
The HTC One X+ is very durable, and has survived the numerous accidents I have had with it. I do recommend getting a case, as you should for all mobile phones.

Storage
The fact that there is no memory card slot on the phone may seem daunting at first, but in reality the phone comes with all the internal memory you'll need. The phone comes with either 32 GB or 64 GB. I am reviewing the 64 GB phone, but I have not even filled up 32 GB of the space yet.

Size
The size of the phone is just perfect in my opinion. It is large enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and the screen size ensures that there is plenty of room on the screen to display things.

Negative Points

Overuse
After 3 years of use, the quality rapidly deteriorates. I need to use an app to force the phone to recognize my earbuds as it can no longer do this by itself.

A few times a day, the phone rejects the SIM Card roughly 6 times in 3 seconds. This isn't a problem for texting or calling, but the warning disrupts anything you are currently doing.

The speed of the phone also falls dramatically. Even scrolling through apps has slowed, and at times this can get so bad, activities like watching YouTube videos becomes impossible.

Camera
While the camera on the HTC One X+ is by no means poor in quality, it is certainly not for anything other than capturing moments. If you want to take a good selfie or artistic shot, this phone is not for you.

Outdated
The HTC One X+ can support up to Android Version 4.2.2. This is absolutely fine for a casual user of the phone, but any newer apps like Pokemon GO are unsupported by this phone.

Battery Life
The initial battery life is very good; the talk time is 12 hours 45 minutes. Unfortunately, this deteriorates at the same time as the rest of the performance. Today, the phone will run out of change after 4-5 hours of being locked. Additionally, the phone will not turn off at 0%, but at 14%.
