Contract with tmobile is coming to a head in August, so looking round for a new phone, it is down to this or a sgs3. Currently got a desire, is this phone a hell of an improvement over the dessy? And more importantly, would you guys recommend it?
Device(s): Xperia Z1, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 3G, HTC One X

I'd recommend 100%, but obviously can't compare to the SGS3. On paper it's better, but I've no real complaints with the One X. A few folk have had issues, but HTC have released 3 OTA updates so far so it looks as if they're keeping on top of peoples issues and fixing ASAP.
Even if you do not like Sense, the phone is more than worth it IMO. There are a couple of free Launchers in the app store that do away with the sense thing.
I use Nova Launcher and love it.
AND.........i also have had zero issues with it. The top brass will not make separate forums for the AT&T version and the world version. No idea why. Very confusing when you read the threads which phone peeps are talking about. I may be wrong but i do believe most issues are with the world version?
Device(s): HTC One X (4.0.3 - 1.28 build + T'Orange Bloatware!), Asus Transformer (4.0.3)

you do know your pretty much gonna get a biased view on this posting on a 1X thread right? :P lol
But to the question, love the one x, the 1.28 update has made it usable. camera the best HTC has brought out EVER. Still a few issues such as optimisation with the Tegra 3 chip i.e. the glitchy Live wall papers but overall, LOVE the phone.
Totally worth it. Huge improvement over the Desire. I was at a party Sat night, and I must have had 10 people say "What is that phone? It looks cooler than an iPhone. I've never seen it before." It is so light, screen is amazing, camera is great. Slo Mo video is great. Sense 4 is great. Can't say enough good things about it.
My comments may be biased as I am a Desire user, then Sensation XE and now One X. HTC Sense is one of the reason for sticking with HTC.
Have the One X for nearly a month, no regrets, nothing to complaint, a few small imperfection here and there as other have mentioned but not really affecting the overall satisfaction of owning the phone.
The build and finished quality of the phone feels great, may be a little big for small hands but I have seen ladies with even bigger phones like Galaxy Note.
To be fair, you may just like to hold on a little longer until the Galaxy S3 is in the store so that you can make a physical comparation between this two excellent Android phones.
The HTC One X is the first quad-core Android smartphone, not only by HTC but from any manufacturer. It'll have a Tegra 3 chipset inside by NVIDIA alongside 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel HD camera with flash, front-facing camera, a 4.7 inch 720p di... Read More
