HTC One X Review - Page 2
With the One X you get the same 720P resolution as the Rezound and it also has a new Super LCD 2 panel and with the 4.7-inch display you get a pixel density of 316ppi. This gives you great viewing angles and the colors seemed very natural and the whites were whiter than on AMOLED devices like the Galaxy Nexus. Outdoors you will have to crank the brightness to the max but when you do it is readable and able to be navigated.
Now the camera function on a phone is getting a ton of press with each new phone pushing boundaries. Now while it doesn’t have the 44-megapixel camera like the Nokia does, the HTC One X does give you a camera that will help you take great photos even if you are a complete novice or even a more experienced photographer. Oh and yes it does do Panoramic shots like some other big name cameras.
The HTC One X’s camera is a solid camera, thanks to an 8-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor, an incredibly wide aperture f/2.0 autofocus lens (vs. f/2.2 on the Amaze 4G, f/2.4 on the iPhone 4S, f/2.65 on the Galaxy S II and f/2.8 on the N8) and an extra processor called the ImageChip.
Now you can talk features all day long but the real bread and butter is in startup time and delay between shots. The HTC One X blows the competition out of the water with a .7 second startup and .2 second shutter delay between shots. The speedy Galaxy Nexus can’t match that and the Nexus was touted as a speedy camera. For all that great there are some missing components. With the lack of a physical shutter button you are stuck with tapping the screen to take a picture. Some people might not have the dexterity to do all that. There is also concern with the long-term durability of the glass covering the optics which is exposed to fingerprints and scratches by protruding from the phone's body.
Much like other cameras in phone the HTC One X doesn’t lack in filters and special features, like real-time filters, HDR, panorama, burst and slow-motion video. You can even take 8-megapixel widescreen images whilst taking video. You can even grab HD frames from an existing video during playback. So you will always have a chance to catch that great shot.Continued on the next page
