Top Features of the HTC One X

HTC Sense 4

The interface provides a swift and smooth browsing and multi-tasking experience. Sense 4 gives users an enhanced audio and camera experience with quick launch and navigation qualities. 

Camera

HTC One X's 8MP HD camera features ImageSense and rivals traditional digital cameras with improvements to every part of the camera including the lens, sensor and software, while integrating HTC's new ImageChip to make quality picture taking a swifter. 

The camera can be launched directly from the lock screen with zero shutter lag and continuous shooting. The new lens also enables the camera to take beautiful shots in low-light conditions. For those who find it troubling to switch from video to picture mode on the phone, the new Video Pic feature allows the capture of still pictures while recording video in HD as well as the ability to capture a still image from previously recorded video. 

Processor

The HTC One X comes with a 1.5 .5 GHz Qualcomm SnapdragonTM S4 dual-core processor, which allows users to carry out several tasks at the same time without any lag time. 

Display

Watching movies and TV shows on the phone just became easier with the HTC One X 4.7-inch 720p HD screen with sharp images that appear detailed and visible from every angle - even angled up to 80 degrees.  The HTC Watch feature gives users access to thousands of films, and the films can be streamed instantly. 

Sound

HTC One X is the first device from AT&T with HTC's authentic sound experience featuring Beats by Dr. Dre Audio integration, offering rich, full sounds with professional-grade sound engineering to play the music how the artist intended.
