REVIEW: HTC One X – a beautiful device with a super-fast processor

By on

After a series of losses, the company announced that they will be producing fewer phones. And this is one of the phones – the HTC One X. Featuring a large 4.7-inch display and a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the phone is probably the last hope for HTC to compete against rivals Samsung and Motorola.
