Unlike some of the smartphones we have reviewed previously, the HTC One X that was delivered to us did not come in the standard retail box, but a white box containing the power adapter, USB cable, earphones with microphone and a microSIM pin for ejecting the tray. The HTC One X sports a 4.7-inch touchscreen with Gorilla Glass and supports 1280×720 pixel resolution, and is 8.9mm thin and claims to be resistant to scratches and stains. A 1.3-megapixel front camera is above the display, while below the screen are three touch-sensitive buttons – Back, Home and Recent apps. The Recent apps allows you to scroll and switch from one app to another almost instantly.
The phone's microUSB connector is on the left, which can also connect to a compatible HDMI adapter for high definition video output to external displays. On the right is the volume control, which is also the zoom function for the built-in camera.
At the rear is the 8-megapixel camera with 28mm F2.0 lens. The company mentioned the camera having HTC Smart Flash which allows the phone to take good quality photos even under low light environment. Just above the camera lens is the 3.5mm audio jack and microSIM card slot with ejectable tray. There is no microSD card slot for expansion, though the internal 32GB capacity should suffice for most users (it is only available in 32GB). If that is not good enough for you, well, HTC has integrated a Dropbox app on its HTC Sense 4 user interface, which allows users to get 25 gigabytes of free Dropbox space for two years. You also can't remove the phone's battery, and in case the phone freezes, you can perform a hard reset by pressing and holding the power and volume down buttons together and wait till you see three Android images appear.
