HTC One X: the exterior
The One X, HTC's top model with an average price of around £445, is beautifully designed. The front of the body is slightly curved which makes the black frame around the screen appear to stick out somewhat. There are no seams or covers in the unibody design, except for the small cover for the microSIM card on the back.
The One X has a 4.7-inch display which means it's not a small phone. It's still quite a bit smaller than Samsung's Galaxy Note, but larger than most Android phone out there. It's just a little smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S3, but the difference is very small.
HTC implemented three capacitive buttons below the screen. There is a back button, a home button and a button that shows the most recently used apps. This follows Google's design guidelines for Android 4.0, which recommend those exact functions when physical or capacitive buttons are used.
While we like the design of the HTC One X, we have one point of criticism about the exterior. The camera on the back protrudes a bit too much. HTC softened the look a bit by adding a silver-grey cone, but it remains a strange hump on an otherwise very attractive phone.
