In this article, I am going to take a closer look at the touchscreen and processor technology of the HTC One X. This is the latest and greatest flagship Android smartphone from the popular Taiwanese manufacturer. Although it has only been on the market for a short period, it has already proved to be a popular choice.
The HTC One X has the most advanced touchscreen to date of any phone for this manufacturer. It utilises Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen technology, which contributes to its display quality and responsiveness to touch. At 4.7 inches, the screen is sizable enough to enjoy watching movies and playing games, along with many other tasks, equally at home being used to edit a spreadsheet or read an eBook. However, it is not so large that it will not fit into a park or handbag, so HTC has got the balance right. The resolution of the screen is 720x 1280, which means that high definition content can be displayed on the screen, adding to its multimedia credentials, although this of course also means that everything else is displayed in top quality, from the user interface in general and apps etc.
One of the most notable features of the HTC One X is its processor. It is the first HTC smartphone, and one of the first handsets from any manufacturer to incorporate a quad-core processor. At 1.5 GHz, this makes the HTC One X the most powerful smartphone the world in terms of processing power, a title shared with phones like the LG Optimus 4X which has a very similar processor. This is the next generation smartphone processor technology. Because there are four individual cores, these can be dedicated to one particular task, meaning that multitasking is even more efficient than that of a smartphone with a dual-core processor. Benefits of this extra processing technology can be found among many aspects of the HTC One X’s spec list, and provides outstanding performance whatever you are using the phone for.
Of course, there is much more to the HTC One X than just its touchscreen and processor. However, as you can see these are both very impressive features, and it gives a good picture of the level of technology that you will find across every aspect of the handset's specification list.
