Looks like the HTC One X+ has been made available at AT&T today. It sort of snuck in under the radar for the most part. The One X+ is revamped and improved version of the original One X. With the One X+ housing a Tegra 3 quad-core chip at 1.7GHz. It offers up the new Sense 4+ UI, a 4.7-inch 720p screen and Android 4.1. AT&T’s site stats that the device has a 2100 mAh battery, embedded of course, with a talk time of 12.75 hours. That is a huge difference over the suggested 8.5 hours of talk time on the 1800 mAh battery in the original One X. With 64GB of non-partitioned internal memory and coming in at only $199.99 on contract, it is a device that should be looked at pretty closely. Yet all of this is housed in the exact same size and form factor of the One X. The only noticeable difference one might find, is that the One X+ weighs 0.3 ounces more.
Now we are starting to wonder why other manufactures are leaning in the direction HTC took with the One X+. It has all the bells and whistles, plenty of battery life, plenty of screen real estate and adequate memory internally that makes the need for a SD card mute and all for a price point that makes sense. Why is this device not making bigger headline and a bigger splash?
Anyone out there taking a second look at this device? Are you headed to a store to pick one up?
I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though. I work hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.
