Forums Added for the HTC One X, One XL, and One S
Remember the HTC One product line that we examined during our time at MWC? Now as their launch dates creep ever closer, we are giving the product family a home on our forums. All three high-end devices are poised for flagship status, fusing premium internals and top-notch build quality.
The HTC One X features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 4.7″ 720p Super LCD2 display, 32 gigs of storage, and a full gig of RAM. The HTC One XL offers similar specs and an almost identical design, but swaps out the Tegra 3 processor for an extremely speedy 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and LTE connectivity. The HTC One S also looks appetizing, boasting the same 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 1 GB of RAM as its XL brother, but with a smaller 4.3″ qHD Super AMOLED display and 16 gigs of internal storage. And most importantly, the three will feature unlockable bootloaders, courtesy of HTCdev.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
