HTC One X release date?

How long will we have to wait for the HTC One X after its unveiled on Sunday?

This is a huge turn off. I know that micro sims are the way to go now as we phase the old tech out, but now I'll be forced to give up my grandfathered unlimited data with ATT. I new it wouldn't last forever, but I didn't think I would lose it this quickly. Also, we stick with Android for a lot of reasons, but one huge reason for me is that unlike the iphones, I can chose to expand my memory, use multiple sd cards for movies, apps and music and get a bigger, beefier battery or use multiple batteries while in flight or in another situation where I can't recherge. I hate the booster packs where you have to plug them in and it then makes the phone awkward to hold. I will definitely wait to see what the S3 brings. I'm dissappointed, HTC. And after I picked an Inspire over the Galaxy because I preferred HTC to Samsung. Now, you're leaving me with no choice but to switch to Galaxy. Damn!

I've heard April 5th for the UK.

Three UK have confirmed that they will stock the HTC One X, but haven't given any more details.

Can someone confirm if this comes with a micro SD card slot, I've seen conflicting reports so far. Thanks.

32 GB non-expandable says Sascha Segan after a hands-on

It doesn't have a MicroSD card slot. But it does have 32gb of internal memory.

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 27, 2012 at 14:55

Also, it's Clove who're quoting April 5th for release.

man that sucks, what's with the whole 'no removable battery & no micro sd' thing manufacturers have been doing recently. I hope the s3 doesn't go down this path.

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 27, 2012 at 20:40

I don't know why the manufacturers have started doing it. Even more annoyingly the One X takes a Micro SIM too, eugh.

Yesterday to order for April 5th delivery

You'd be mad to buy one before even seeing what the S3 brings to the table. The S3 is likely to have been announced by April 5th anyway so you're not losing anything by waiting for the announcement.

Well, you only need to cut your sim once. Get a sim-adapter (some shops here give them away. They cost pennies), and you can continue to use your sim....

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 6, 2012 at 19:15

Doesn't help with the memory or battery issues though...they're a bad move by HTC, IMHO.

CTPAHHIK  Mar. 7, 2012 at 07:55

No SD is a huge minus. Enough to buy Ascend.

corgi74  Mar. 9, 2012 at 16:54

MicroSD and expandable storage will soon be a thing of the past. ICS doesn't allow you to write to and external SD as standard (like Honeycomb) and you make more money selling 16gb, 32gb and 64gb versions of the same phone.
Galaxy Nexus - No SD
HTC One X - No SD
Sony Xperia S - No SD
Galaxy S3 - If it has an SD it will be a read only just as a crowd pleaser for the spec sheet

Pondlife  Mar. 9, 2012 at 17:43

Down to the consumer to make clear that they want expandable storage by voting with their wallets then.
ICS tablets with microsd though aren't there?
Less concerned about it now tbh with unlimited data and cloud storage it's becoming less important to me. Wouldn't pay over the odds for larger capacity.

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 9, 2012 at 17:51

There are barely any truly unlimited data plans in the UK (GiffGaff, 3's One Plan and T-Mobile's Full Monty, even then the last two of those are pretty pricey contract only plans) and even if you have truly unlimited data that doesn't buy you truly unlimited 3G, or better, signal; which is a big issue in the UK.

GiffGaff is cheap but uses O2's network, which has the worst 3G coverage of all the UK networks, so you won't be able to use your unlimited data particularly effectively even though you've paid for it.

3 no longer have a 2G back-up, so if you visit a rural area your phone becomes totally useless as a connected device, meaning you're making a big sacrifice to have unlimited data. Also, the One Plan is £25+ per month, AFAIK; pretty expensive.

T-Mobile have a very good signal and a truly unlimited data plan, seems perfect until you realise the Full Monty plan costs £36 and upwards per month!

Pondlife  Mar. 9, 2012 at 18:03

3s payasyougo add on gives unlimited data and some amount of calls and many texts too. Dread to think how much I've used this month lol. Been using netflix on it for starters.
Had more trouble getting signal on tmobile than 3 tbh.

Treab  Mar. 9, 2012 at 18:44

3 offer unlimited internet for around 13 quid...

but its true i would always rather have local storage (sd card or built in) over cloud storage... what happens if they get hacked? or anonymous does one of their crappy campaigns (those guys should be shot)

Can anyone provide me with proof that the one x will come with beats headphones in the box for free. Also what type are they.

There's no proof right now because the details haven't been finalised yet. Many are expecting it to come with some, but it's not guaranteed.

AhmadCentral  Mar. 9, 2012 at 20:24

Thanks blizzard. I might be getting this from work next month. Just want to know whether it has the over the ear ones that are always demoed, or the in ear ones.

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 9, 2012 at 21:37

My bad, I didn't realise 3 do PAYG all you can eat data, still, it costs £15 per month, that's £180 per year, or £360 over a phone's average two year life span (with no guarantee that 3 won't raise the prices in the next two years).

Link to 3's PAYG data prices:

MicroSD cards cost about £15 for 32gb...I know which one seems the better deal to me...

Pondlife  Mar. 10, 2012 at 00:59

Can't recall last phone I used for 2 years and with 4g within two years anyway and the whole game will change again.

I know what you mean about microsd cost but not like anyone here wouldn't be using net anyway so somewhat false comparison. I'd rather have the external too but won't be biggest factor in any choice, certainly wouldn't be paying the huge costs for extra internal.

Pondlife  Mar. 10, 2012 at 01:34

Mind you with one game I've seen on hukd using 1.37gb space I think space could become a real issue again. 1.37gb, madness
