HTC One XL - L for LTE

 

Unlike its quad-core sibling, the HTC One XL runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Manufactured via a 28nm process technology, will this S4 processor outgun the Tegra 3 processor in the One X? And how does it fare against...

Nice design and solid build quality ; Fast LTE speeds ; Good overall performance ; Does not get as warm as the HTC One X

Pricey ; Battery life shorter than expected

Many consumers will find themselves in a dilemma - should they get the HTC One XL, One X, ASUS PadFone, or the Samsung Galaxy S III? Let's break it down one by one.

HTC One XL review: HTC's One X gets the superfast 4G treatment. Is the extra speed worth it?

Super fast 4G speeds ; Elegant design and superb screen ; Some great camera features

Poor battery life ; Inconsistent Sense UI

The addition of LTE 4G connectivity adds a new dimension to the HTC One XL. Fast mobile data speeds combined with an outstanding design, an excellent screen and good overall performance make the One XL a great smartphone. Poor battery life,...

HTC One XL

 

Can HTC's One XL rival Samsung's Galaxy SIII LTE for the 4G crown?

Great screen ; Fast 4G download speeds ; Good camera ; Fast performance

No removable battery ; No removable storage ; Doesn’t come with Jelly Bean

The quality of shots is on the whole very good, but they lack that little extra edge to put them up there with the very best. The camera has a slight tendency to wash out brighter parts of pictures and sometimes detail isn’t quite as sharp as it should...

HTC One XL review

 

We swooned at the original HTC One X when it was announced, with its super-sleek polycarbonate body and fantastic burst-mode camera. However, when we actually got to test it, it was undermined somewhat by poor battery life. Now we have the...

A new chipset for an already excellent handset makes it a great 4G alternative to the mighty Samsung S3 LTE

HTC One XL Review: In Depth

 

We've had an HTC One X, a One X+ and now we've got a One XL. What are all these suffixes about? The One X is the original HTC flagship announced at MWC earlier in 2012, the One X+ which we reviewed…

Fast mobile internet speeds ; Great web performance ; Gorgeous screen

Expensive ; Non-expandable ; Mediocre battery life

HTC One XL

 

The One XL is just like the One X, but with 4G network speeds. It also benchmarks faster, though it's similarly held back by its battery life.

Excellent Super LCD display ; 4G network speeds ; Great performance

Non-replaceable battery and storage ; Only average multimedia playback options ; Battery life not suitable for business use

Like the One X, the One XL is among our favourite phones of the year, so far. For many people, the choice between a One X and One XL will be made when they decide whether to be a Telstra customer or not. If you're looking for the better phone, you'd...

HTC One XL review

 

We examine whether HTC's first 4G phone is worth the premium price

Screen is excellent, great camera, nice design

EE's 4G speeds weren't as fast as we'd have hoped, poor battery life

We loved the HTC One X and were happy to see that the HTC One XL features the same gorgeous screen, great design and camera.

Dual-core chip; can’t expand 16GB onboard storage; Battery dies after 4 and a half hours of video streaming
