The HTC One X+ was released late last year and has took over the One X as the company’s flagship handset until the HTC One was released a few weeks ago. The short lifespan of the handset means that it has been viewed more like a stopgap than anything else.
Uswitch has struck an exclusive deal with O2 and is selling the HTC One X+ handset from only £22 per month on a two year contract (that’s a total cost of ownership of only £528. And what you get for the outlay is actually not that bad. There’s 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB data plus O2 Rewards and O2 Priority loyalty schemes.
As for the phone itself, it is a minor improvement on the HTC One X. It is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.7GHz with 1GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage (but no microSD card slot).
That’s complemented by 25GB cloud-based storage for free for two years thanks to Dropbox.
Other features include a 4.7in Super LCD 2 touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass 2 and a 1,280 x 720 pixel display, Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4, NFC, GPS, a 2,100mAh battery, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and a BSI sensor, a front facing 1.6-megapixel camera plus a dedicated HTC ImageChip.
