HTC One X available from £339

If you don’t mind getting your phone from Hong Kong (with local warranty and no taxes/charges to be paid), then head over to eBay to check the HTC One X, which CC Electronics Store is selling for a mere £339 including a one year warranty. This is around 10 per cent cheaper than the equivalent offer from Expansys (although the latter comes with a free gift bundle).

The One X is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz, with 1GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a unibody polycarbonate chassis (not unlike the Galaxy S3 or the Nokia Lumia 800/900), 25GB cloud storage courtesy of Dropbox, a dedicated imaging chip, an 8-megapixel camera with AF, F2.0 aperture, BSI Sensor and 28mm lens, full HD video recording, a 1.3-megapixel camera, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, Beats Audio technology and a 4.7in 1,280 x 720 resolution.

Other competitors to the HTC One X include the Galaxy S3 (which has had a massive price cut), the LG Optimus 4X HD whose price was cut to less than £300, the ZTE Grand Era and the Huawei Ascend D.

There are rumours that the HTC One X, which is barely eight months old, will be replaced by a new handset called the One X Plus.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
