    How we all can't wait for the HTC One X. The AT&T smartphone coming out soon and to be the first HTC phone to come stock with ICS and to come with HTC sense 4.0 and with it's very impressive specs the HTC One X is sure to be a very nice phone. That's why I made this thread in dedication of this phone and also for nice place for one and all to hang out and chat about whatever we want.
    Have fun! :D

    Here's my wrap up of the One X series...

    Reported to be getting the One X without the 4+1 Tegra 3 processor due to LTE network incompatibility.
    Instead it will have the S4 Snapdragon/Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core processor inside (which might not be a bad thing) & run hTC sense 4.0...

    Sadly, AT&T's HTC One X won't be quad-core (and here's why) | Mobile World Congress - CNET Reviews

    Tmobile: (Rumor)
    Tmobile is said to be getting the One X with the Tegra 3 4+1 core processor to run on their HSPA+ network. Rumored to be running stock ICS "vanilla" UI.
    They will probably brand this device as a "G" series phone...

    T-Mobile variant of HTC One X said to have quad-core and stock Android 4.0

    Sprint: (Rumor)
    Also said to be getting the One X, or maybe a variant, called the hTC Jewel. They will probably brand this device as an Evo HD LTE. It will have the Tegra 3 4+1 core replaced (like AT&T's) with the Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual core processor & (more than likely) probably run sense 4.0... Link in article above as Sprint, too, is expected to offer a version of the hTC One X...

    Now with Tegra 3 4+1 core vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual core processor...
    From what I have been reading/seeing it suggests that the S4 outperforms the Tegra 3 in most cases and even blows it away...

    A Preview of the Krait-Based S4 Vs Tegra 3 and Exynos 4210

    " The whole idea of 28nm and big little design of A15 chip is to provide better performance at a much lower battery cost. So the idea that Tegra 3's 40nm (pentacore) chip will be more efficient seems invalid. Real life usage will tell us more.

    In short A15 > A9"

    Well, that's what I may have learned and what I think I know about the hTC One X series.
    A lot of this are rumors/speculation, so we will all see how it all plays out, with no removable battery and absence of sd card slot included! are now free to complain about that for the rest of the thread! :D:p

    Nice. A place for people to hang out and talk about whatever they want and to even talk about the upcoming HTC One X.

    I wish they would release it already. I like to read what the everyday user experience has to say about a new device.

    I'd expect it on Sprint in June, in keeping with the other 2 Evo releases.

    I am hard pressed to want to give up my 3D, but I am intrigued by the S4, more than the Tegra 3 - tough call though.

    I want to know if the new camera is really great or just hype.

    Very much looking forward to it. My carrier has it on their site as "coming soon" (which generally means they're about a month away from having it in stock), so I know what my upgrade is!

    I so wanted to like the one X. First quad core, plus I already use a HTC. Trust HTC to ruin it for me with ridiculously stupid points.

    No removable storage. What? Oh for making money. Riiiiight.

    No removable battery? Jeez, you Apple now? Possibly could live without removable memory but no removable battery? Rooter's nightmare!!!

    Why take a good principle and ruin it? Now I'm still looking for the next handset because they still haven't made it yet!

    Yeah, I am not liking that they are not including removable battery and storage. Hopefully they wont go through with it but most likely will. :(

    No replaceable battery means forced obsolescence when the battery dies. Dead battery = dead phone. No more handing down your phone to a family member or just keeping it around because you like it. We all see the people still happily using their original Droid. Say goodbye to that if we allow this non replaceable battery to become standard. Even if you are the type to get a new phone every six months, you should object to this on principal alone. I will never buy a phone without a removable battery. Ever.

    I see this when new phones are coming out, and I gotta ask why. Why make this thread? There is a complete HTC One X subforum here on the site already, why make a thread here in the Lounge about a particular phone? I'm honestly tired of coming in here and still seeing the Galaxy Nexus Lounge thread, I see no use for it to be in this section.

    Tell the mods what you think.

    Lounge type threads let users openly speculate and discuss upcoming phones, carriers, specs, & generally just hangout without a fear of getting off topic about a specific topic.
    Usually if you get too much OT on a certain thread it gets locked. Lounge threads are not support threads so they don't belong there, when someone searches for a specific problem they are having they want to find the answer straightforwardly, not all kind of stuff that is totally unrelated to their problem.

    If you are tired of seeing these upcoming phone threads just ignore them.

    Don't hate, participate!!!

    <Hit report tell the mods and site admins you are tired of seeing this junk<
    Not us.

    I agree with your entire post, but that sums it up for me.

    Hrethgir, if you're not into the Lounge type threads, just ignore them. There are loads of other topics in this section that are worth a look in.

    If you see something which is way off, hit report and we'll take a look. :)

    I made this thread to discuss the HTC One X and not to start arguments or anything. You find lots of similar threads here, but if you don't like it that's ok with me, all I wish is for us to discuss and have fun.:)

    I just hope with the One X they make it to where you can remove the battery and storage. I don't like that with the iphone and I am disappointed they are doing this to the One X.

    I think it's too late to hope for that with the X. :( I'm hoping they'll learn for the next generation of devices.
