Hands-on with the HTC One X @ SMART’s JUMP Center

I  dropped by on SMART’s JUMP Experience Center in Cyberzone, SM Megamall today just to experience this Android smartphone on the spotlight with quadcore Tegra3 procie, 4.7”, and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the HTC One X.

From a post on JUMP Center facebook fanpage, I got the news about the coming of this new flagship phone from HTC, care-of SMART and its availability for trials at the JUMP Center. Knowing that, it made me excited to visit Cyberzone! And so I did.

HTC One X - JUMP Center

The One is finally here. Visit us to experience the power of HTC One X. See. Touch. Experience it FIRST here at Jump. Official commercial launch is on April 13, 2012.

I just had a little time though; I just played with the device for a little while, and then took some crap photos using my old mobile phone. Here are some photos of the HTC One X from SMART’s JUMP Center:



The HTC One X runs under the revamped OS of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Its UI is clean, and obviously has its being HTC-ish.

It has a very slim and sleek design. Its body texture is smooth as well, but still you surely won’t be getting problems of it being slipped through your grip. Considering its weight, it’s just light and right for it’s built.

It has a 4.7” Super LCD screen. The display is very crisp and clear. The touch screen is responsive as expected.

I haven’t tried the performance of Nvidia Tegra3 chip on running HD games as per there aren’t any installed games and applications yet on the demo phone. Of course, I am too lazy to login in my Google Account just to access the Play Store and score some games on the unit.

I just tried using the 8MP rear camera, and I do not have any complains with the quality. Even if I did use it under the maximum level of zooming, still I got pretty clear photo shots.

PS. There is an annoying filtering color of violet on my photos as per it was the light from the spotlight on its pedestal inside the JUMP Center. So here is how the HTC One X looks like under a better a camera:

Well, if you still don’t know much about the HTC One X, here are its specs for your reference:

How much is the price of the HTC One X? As of the moment, the pricing from SMART is not disclosed yet until Friday (April 13 –its official launch). However, some assumptions calls it would fall on the Php30-33K range. Some online stores are selling it on just Php26K-up price mark, via pre-orders.

Well, what do you think about the HTC One X? Will you get one? Is it an upgrade or downgrade of the phone unit you currently have in your hands?
