Default What next after your One X ?

Just looking on the web about the next generation of smart phones and I was thinking maybe I'll move away from my HTC One X to the Galaxy S4 over the next few months. The One X is my 5th HTC phone but I think I need a change. And I was a little annoyed they released the X+ soon after the One X. So who is planning to change their phone brand over the next few months? and why?

My contract isn't up till October, but I can upgrade in September so I'll have to see what's out then. I'm probably looking at something other than HTC though.

I have 3 lines and one is available to upgrade now. Its either the S4 (depending on shape) or the One X2. I'll buy the Nexus 5 off contract.

Being in Australia on Telstra I'm a little limited with phones that are able to do voice & sms across 850mHz as well as doing 3G/LTE seamlessly ... Looking into the HTC M7 tho, looks quite nice.

Galaxy series are nice, I just find their interface - touchwiz - to be very childish compared to sense :/

I can upgrade anytime at minimal cost so I'll be monitoring this thread for options

I'm waiting on the htc m7 or may even go for the sgs4, it'll most probably be one of those two. I hated touchwiz but after getting my galaxy tab 2 I'm getting used to it.

Had 2 HTC phones now and whilst i've chosen them because of build quality I can see me moving away from them. As mentioned im also annoyed that the OneX+ came out so soon after the OneX. Ultimately I think Samsung are going to leave all the other manufacturers in the shade.

They've refined it and made it a lot less in your face than it was before IMO. I upgraded my Mums SGS2 to ICS last weekend and I was (relatively) impressed with what they've done with Touchwiz of late. To the point, that like yourself, I'd probably consider a Samsung now. I'm also of the opinion that no matter what phone I get, it wouldn't be running the stock software for long anyway.

The other good thing about Samsung, they'll release a flagship device and it will be a flagship device for at least a year.

Don't get me wrong, I love the One X and HTC, but whereas before I was only interested in HTC, I'm def more open to other brands now.

Agree with that pres, I'm still not blown away by the s3 screen and looks but they are moving in the right direction with the UI and think the next one might have the balance right.

One X+ still boils my piss a little, just for the battery power and how quickly it was released, it had the effect of making One X users feel a little cheated tbh

Someone thinking along the same lines as me there with the M7, but thats provided the specs are what i have seen quoted or better.

Unless a really good alternative is released, I think I will be moving on to a Sammy S4 next time. This is my 3rd HTC and just fancy a change really. Whatever I get, Android is staying in my life!

I'm undecided what to do next......i still love my One x, but am due an upgrade from today.

I'm liking the look of the Experia Z at the minute, but am holding off until MWC to see what else is on the horizon (the M7 looks like it might be a tempting choice as well) , in which case i will let my contract go the full 12 months before changing.

Although i am very tempted to stay with what i have and try and grab an iphone 5 as my upgrade and punt it on Ebay for 500+

Yeah the Experia z does look lovely doesn't it? Aren't they meant to be splash proof or water proof so you can wash them under the tap?

Yes, only waterproof to a depth of 1 metre for 30 minutes.....but that should cover most accidental drop situations into water, only downpoint of that is that there are small flaps that cover things like the charger slot and headphone jack, small point i know but it does look like a nice piece of kit.

I do like the One X and the build quality but I do like to have the option of upgrading the battery with say a mugen one. I'd still prefer external storage too.
I'm on contract too and its not up until October but I'm thinking of going sim free this time as I don't like having to wait for a network to release their bloatwear on the manufacturers software. Either way my choices will probably be between the H7, GS4, and the nexus 5, decisions,decisions...

It's the first htc I've had so wasn't aware of that but having a flagship phone only be a flagship for 5months is a bad strategy and makes me not want to invest in their flagship again, love the design and think sense is the best manufacturer UI but will be hesitant to get their phone straight away if something else is coming a few months down the line.

Really fancy the next Nexus if it has great specs and I could actually get one

I will probably buy a Nexus devise out of contract (hopefully Nexus 5) unless it is another shit storm like the Nexus 4 has been.... I was going to order a 4 a couple of weeks ago but neither were in stock, but there is nothing new about that.
If a nexus is just looking like crap then I will probably buy the Note 2 or 3, or maybe the GS4.

Default Re: What next after your One X ?

I have used HTC for a few years now. I got the one x on day one of release great phone more than happy, but like me jcdub I was really fed up when the x+ came out a couple of months later and then there's been the dragging of the heels with he JB update I have lost a bit of faith. Since having a Nexus 7 I am now leaning towards a Nexus phone. It is a while off yet before I can change but my loyalty to HTC is waining.

Im in two minds still, (not that it matters really as i cant upgrade till July 2014!)

I still prefer the HTC One X on a personally
But after the reliability troubles i've had with the one X i'd be more open to looking at other phones,

especially after having ago on the S3 and the Nokia Lumia 810 this weekend and been impressed with both.

I can't upgrade until 2014, but the latest rumours are Nokia are no longer saying never to Android. Their latest stance is we don't know what will happen in the future.
A Nokia Lumia 920 running Android. That would be interesting.

One of the security guards at work has the nokia and is feels very, very nice. Don't know if I'd be willing to make the jump to the Windows OS, but it still felt like a cracking handset.

Shame Nokia went with Windows instead of Android (although you never know what will happen).

I agree it is a very good build quality on the phone and the camera on it is very good.

I was more impressed with windows than I thought I would be, its very user friendly and fast,

Personally though the App store is still abit limited for my liking (although I didnt get long to go on it so I may be wrong) and I like changing the wallpaper and theme of my one X at least once every couple of weeks which I couldn't do on a windows phone (all you can change is the lock screen picture and the colour of the tiles)

i love everything about htc, the build quality, sense, etc, especially wen compare to s3 etc... but since the one x.. uve had the one x + and the DNA, within the 12 month period... a flagship should last for 12 months...

if they spend the budget making the new phones on marketing existing handsets, they would probs sell more... and not alienate customers in the process..

I just want a smartphone that allows me to do "smartphone" things, with out worrying if the battery will die on me after 4hrs of using it.

Its all well and good having a phone that keeps you updated with your email,social media. Lets you navigate the world,if you do so require. But what use is that when you have to "make sure you turn your bluetooth,wifi,gps,auto sync (and anything else that might drain the battery) off".

I love my HTC One X. I love HTC.

But my next phone will be based on battery life first.

Some more screens apparently. It's getting better, but there are still elements I find overly garish. I wish they'd change the default battery icon.

That's sad, I'm already ready for a new phone and I just got this one new less than 3 months ago... I kinda beat myself up for not getting a SGS3... Oh the woes of loving all things android!!!
The jelly bean update would be nice right about now.

I am definitely looking at the SGS4 or what ever they are calling it...apparently the number 4 is bad luck.

I love my OneX BUT I am in the same boat as some others on here, they put the OneX+ out reletively soon after the OneX. I mean really? At least Apple waits a year. Everything I am seeing about the SGS4 is looking really nice and if Sammy ACTUALLY puts Qi into it this time instead of only talking about it, I am on board.

I've still got another 15 months on this contract - so will be skipping this upcoming round of phones and sticking with the one x.
What I get next will be influenced partly by how well HTC support this flagship (and respect the development community).
Now my WiFi issue has been fixed with no fuss by HTC, I've got no hardware issues.

On my old Desire, it had a popular dev following, so even as it got older, there were always fixes and roms which helped it along so it didn't feel old. This was one of the reasons I went with HTC for the one x. However, development seems to be fading (no s-off and HTC getting legal on that guy with the ruu's).

I've been getting two year contracts because of the smaller monthly costs, and it is good to feel that the phone you get isn't abanded so you feel like you are stuck with a lemon. Not there yet - but worrying signs.

The cost of the nexus was an eye opener though! Will look at a nexus if it is still as competative at upgrade time.

One X+ still boils my piss a little, just for the battery power and how quickly it was released, it had the effect of making One X users feel a little cheated tbh

... and more importantly... lowering the resale value of the one X when you choose to upgrade... luckily the DNA is not out in the UK, 3 flagship models in one calendar year is redic!!!

Default Re: What next after your One X ?

People talk about the One X+ coming out 6 months after the One X, but did they complain when the Sensation XE and XL followed the Sensation (6 and 7 months later), or the Desire HD 6 months after the Desire and maybe 7 months before the Sensation? A mid cycle refresh has historically been the norm for HTC.

They implied at the start of last year it would be different though. There were rumours of the X+ 3 months after the release of the One X?

I'm not saying it's the sole reason, but if they'd adopt a 1 flagship per year device like Samsung, maybe they'd be in a better position market wise now?

Good point - actually I'd forgotten what they were saying at the time (which is probably the correct attitude to statements of corporate intent ).

OTOH I doubt that's the reason the S3 massively outsold the One X - the majority of potential customers wouldn't be aware of rumours of unreleased phones. And if they really intended to not bump the One X for a year, you might wonder whether the X+ was a response to the S3 winning the sales war (if a strategy isn't working, change it), as the timing of the rumours wouldn't be inconsistent with that.

Be interesting to see how they market the M7, because with Sammy's brand recognition now that has to be key.

Some more screens apparently. It's getting better, but there are still elements I find overly garish. I wish they'd change the default battery icon.
According to those pictures, it looks like they at least flattened out the battery icon? That's what I saw at least.

Having seen it, though, I REALLY hope they push sense 5 to the HOX. Although, knowing HTC, they could just give us 4++ instead, "because we don't want to confuse customers," and even if they did give us sense 5, AT&T wouldn't let us peasants on their network have it till 2014

To be fair, I actually don't like the way Android displays battery level in general. I like to see a %age. They got it right for HoneyComb (taken from my previous phone with a Honeycomb theme):


HTC look to have changed it, but it still looks horrible IMO (although it won't be a reason for swaying me from getting another HTC device).

I wish at least displaying the percentage was an option built in. All the apps I have tried to put it up on the notification pane all seemed to cause battery drain. Now I just have it on my lock screen and I guestimate with the bar. The bar isn't very even though-its still almost 3/4 of the way full at 60%.

I've tried it. Wasn't nearly as bad as some others, but definitely decreased battery life. Idk. I'm just anal about it because I can't seem to get through a day on a single charge.

I think I would buy the Google X Phone, that is rumored to be announced this year.
I'd buy that instantly from the factory.
