More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

First Custom ROM for the HTC One X+
The HTC One X is an amazing device. Beautifully designed, and sporting a 1.5 GHz, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, it is the embodiment of mobile computing power for many users. Sadly, it lacked LTE, so a dual-core Snapdragon S4 version was created for US variants. Thankfully, HTC released the HTC One X+. This model sports a faster 1.7 GHz Tegra 3, a better front facing camera, LTE, and of course all the elegance of the original.
