Review: HTC One X LTE (AT&T)


The march of the HTC One line of devices continues, as AT&T prepares to deliver their next LTE phone. The HTC One X on AT&T is a little different from the HTC One X that was released in the UK not too long ago, swapping out the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset...

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,...

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 hands-on


The HTC One XL is the first LTE phone from HTC, meaning it will be able to get super-fast download speeds on the UK's new 4G network. It has a lower resolution and lesser processor than the standard One X but will that translate to a cheaper price?

Will use the super-fast 4G network ; Thin and sleek design

Dual-core processor ; Lower screen resolution than regular One X ; Not the latest version of Android

Poor battery life ; No microSD slot ; No Android Jelly Bean operating system yet

HTC One XL Review: In Depth


The HTC One XL is the 4G LTE variant of the company's Android flagship. The only other key difference is its 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

Fast mobile internet speeds ; Great web performance ; Gorgeous screen

Expensive ; Non-expandable ; Mediocre battery life

With the One XL hitting all the marks across performance, multimedia and interface, there’s very little going against it other than its price. On EE’s 4G network, the handset will set you back £46 per month and a £26 up front payment. If this sounds...

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


TAWIANESE PHONE MAKER HTC's One XL handset is the first LTE phone from HTC to launch in the UK, which means that buyers of the handset can expect download speeds five times faster than those on a 3G connection, according to mobile carrier EE

Screen is excellent, great camera, nice design

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

We tested the phone in our office and were met with some pretty impressive results, seeing 16.61Mbit/s upload and 20.08Mbit/s download speeds. Despite claims that 4G LTE would be much faster when used outdoors we saw fairly similar speeds when we...

Super speedy 4G connectivity; crisp, bright 4.7-inch display; Beats Audio; eight-megapixel snapper with plenty of features

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