Phone # 1 – HTC One X
This smart phone is powered by Quad Core Tegra 3 of Nvidia. For the first time in HTC history, a uni-body model made of polycarbonate has been used for One X.
This enhances the looks of the mobile. One X has a 4.7 inches HD IPS display on LCD. Its speed in shifting from the sleep mode to the snap mode is almost magical. This is achieved by using HTC’s Imagechip which for the first time has been coupled with the home-grown chipset image processor who also aids in taking successive photos rapidly, thereby providing the user with the option of keeping the best photo.
