30 days with the Enemy: HTC One X (Day 29) – It’s over

So, this will be my final installment on my 30 days challenge with the latest and greatest Android phone. My last one was only a few days back, but since tomorrow is Sunday, I decided to end it today. After all, it’s one day short, I never work on Sundays – and you deserved to hear my final thoughts and conclusion. If I could sum up my thoughts in a…

30 days with the Enemy: HTC One X (Day 25)

So, I’m finally approaching the end of my 30 day One X challenge, and I’m neither here nor there about it. Despite having a Google Play store chock full of hundreds of thousands of apps, I still haven’t found any that would replace the same title app on my iPhone. I’ve never once thought “wow, this app is way better on Android.” In fact – and to my surprise…

30 Days with the Enemy: HTC One X (Day 18)

It’s not long now until I get back to my iPhone, but, oddly over the past week I’ve grown to love a few things about the HTC One X. And, like the Nexus last year, it’s mostly about ICS. Simply put, there are a few things that Android does do better than iOS. 1. App Downloads/Updates The absolute worst thing about iOS is that when you buy an app, it…

30 days with the Enemy: HTC One X (Day 10)

I’m one third of the way through my 30 days with an Android phone, and the iPhone cravings are worse than ever. That said, thanks to everyone for helping out with the keyboard issue last week. I tried installing some third party ones, but, HTC isn’t playing ball. So, I switched on the One X’s “Trace” feature, and that’s been working well. Last week I…

30 days with the enemy: HTC One X (Day 4)

Any regular readers of our site will know that I’ve challenged myself, to see if I can stick with an Android device for 30 days. I’m now on Day 4, and although I’m coping okay, I’m definitely having withdrawal symptoms. A big issue for me is that I’m heavily invested in to Apple’s ecosystem. Practically everything portable I own is made by Apple. All my…

30 days with the enemy: HTC One X (Day 1)

Just over a week ago I wrote an article about why I would never switch to Android. Needless to say, response was a little mixed. iPhone lovers enjoyed it, Android lovers hated. The temptation as a fan of one OS over the other is to remain closed-minded, and so, in an effort to try and be open, I’m going to be using the HTC One X as my main device for the…

HTC One X vs. iPhone 4S: Hardware

The HTC One X promises to be the hottest Android handset around until at least 10 days time, when Samsung unveils its next weapon in the war against iOS. Its stunning spec sheet boasts much, including a 4.7″ 1280 x 720 resolution, IPS S-LCD 2 display, 1.5Ghz Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Although specs don’t mean nothing, they’re not the be…

iPhone 4S vs HTC One X: Camera Comparison [UPDATED: Lowlight shots]

I’m a huge iPhone fan (clearly, look what I do for a living) but I’m a firm believer in checking out the competition every once in a while. I got my hands on a One X a couple of days back, and throughout this week I’ll be doing various comparisons. Today, it’s cameras. In a couple more days I’ll be writing up my full comparison article. I compared the 4S…

HTC One X gives me hope for iPhone’s future – annoys me too

Back when the iPhone 4S launched in October, last year, I rationalized the lack of new design and the same sized display. I thought that there must be a good reason why Apple – supposed market leaders – could release a 4″ plus display with Retina quality resolution. Firstly, it would require a more powerful chip, and a larger battery which would make the…
