We've got the HTC One X+ in our hands today, and it looks to be quite a beauty. However, for this particular post we are keeping things short and sweet. The above video is an unboxing of the retail SIM free version -- a quick tour of the final One X+ hardware, and assorted gubbins bundled with the device.

We'll be following up with a full software tour of HTC Sense 4+ in the next day or so. Yes, we may be teasing you slightly, but remember -- good things come to those who wait.

HTC One X+ retail unboxing and hardware tour


I just can't decide between this and the Nexus 4. I know the Nexus 4 is a beast but with this, you get 64gb storage, a better cam, playstation ready, screen is even better and that amp for the back speaker looks kinda cool. Opinion ?

To me it sounds like the screen is almost a draw if you read what people are saying about the Nexus 4 screen. It's probably splitting hairs to pick a winner.

This is the other phone I also thought sounded tempting, obviously it's a spec monster. Problem is I don't think I'm going to find this for $349.00.

Nobody can answer this question for you. You have to answer it for yourself. Is 16GB enough for you with the Nexus 4? If it isn't, you already answered your question.

I "debated" these two phones. The only thing I think I'd be giving up with the AT&T version of the One X+ is the LTE. But I get the latest and greatest software with the Nexus 4. I think the screens are really close in quality. I think the camera edge would go to the One X+. However, I'm an amateur photography snob so I don't care so much about that since I usually have a strong P&S camera with me at almost all times which smashes the quality of either one of these phones. I'm not a huge gamer. I would LOVE to have LTE but that's really the only thing I think I'd be giving up. The Nexus 4 hardware in and of itself looks much better than I expected (the actual build quality). I hate shiny cheap plastic Samsung crap so it's nice to see a much better build quality on the Nexus 4. I'm not sure it's up to normal HTC standards, but it appears to be close enough for me to get the Nexus.

I don't care about some of the fluff like the amp for the speaker on the One X+ or the Playstation ready stuff. To me, those are not part of the equation. But for you, they might be.

I want software updates and a fast fluid functioning phone. And 16GB is perfect for me. The screen will be great on both phones. Really you have to weigh out what you can live with and what you can't live with. Any phone you buy will have pros and cons...even the almighty iPhone has compromises...lol

the AT&T version is actually going to have LTE... the international has a tegra 3 cpu and the version going to AT&T is going to have the Snapdragon s4 Pro which is quadcore but can also have LTE.

Storage sounds great on the Htc One X +. But the software on the Lg Nexus 4 has got to be better. Myself on November 15th I will be purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Tmobile. It pimp slaps both the Htc One X + and the Lg Nexus 4...

None yet, no idea what the delay is. Phones that were announced after this one have since been released in stores while the one x+ is no where to be found.

Let`s not forget Adreno 320 GPU wipes the floor with the Tegra 3 GPU.... I`m on T-Mobile prepaid $60 a month... I don`t need LTE and I get 25 Mbps on my GS3.... I`m thinking about switching to Straight Talk to lessen the bill even more.... Te Nexus 4 is the phone for me. Although this one is also a beast.

Sure if you get an unlocked one. And use it on edge. But if you're near where any 1900mhz has been enabled you'll get HSPA+. This device is currently exclusive in the US to AT&T but I'm sure there will be unlocked versions at places like expansys and others.

how can i root my HTC One X+, anyone please help, i have unlocked the bootloader, but clockwork doesnt load, the screen just goes black?????
