HTC One X: Big Screen In Thin, Fast Phone

HTC's new HTC One X packages a big, beautiful screen in a thin and light phone. Although not perfect, it's a compelling smart phone we'd consider buying ourselves.

The HTC One X takes great photos of distant objects. Images are sharp with nicely saturated colors and good contrast. Note, however, that the default aspect ratio is 16 x 9, which is more rectangular than the standard 4 x 3 format. The 16 x 9 format records 8-megapixel images, but the 3264 x 1840 pixel setting creates 6MP pictures. Changing the aspect ration to 4 x 3 changes the resolution to 3264 x 2448 and creates 8MP images. You can see the difference between an HTC One X 6MP photo taken at the 16 x 9 setting (left) and an iPhone 4's 5MP photo (right) taken at the 4 x 3 setting.
