Several folks, our own Aaron Baker included, got to spend some time with the HTC One X when it was introduced at Mobile World Congress last month. Now it seems that a new group of people are getting to know the One X, as a poster named Phonegeek at the Android Central forums is an AT&T tester and is busy putting HTC's new flagship through its paces. Phonegeek took a few snaps of the One X both by itself and next to an HTC Inspire 4G (spoiler: The One X is thinner), and then shared some of his initial impressions of the device. He says that the One X feels good and is lightweight but doesn't feel cheap. He's disappointed both by the lack of a microSD slot to supplement the One X's 16GB storage and the non-removable battery, though he does say that battery life is "really good" compared to other LTE-enabled Android devices he's used.

The HTC One X was also put through a couple of benchmarks, and the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4-powered handset performed pretty well. In both the Vellamo browser test and the Quadrant benchmark, the One X bested all comers, including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

So when might you get to your hands on the HTC One X? AT&T has only said that it'll be launching "in the coming months," but Phonegeek anticipates that it could be arriving sometime in mid-May (though that could change). That gives everyone another month and a half or so to save their pennies for the AT&T One X and its still-unannounced price tag. If you'd like to check out more shots of the One X, you can hit up the Android Central forums link below, and we've also got a few photos from MWC that you can find right here. Who's looking forward to the debut of the One X on AT&T?

Ricky Winata maybe, but when sgs iii launch, samsung will take the throne again
Wendy Lindop
Wendy Lindop There isn't really much between high end android devices, they are mostly very similar to each other. Htc phones all look the same. Boring.
Darryl Anthony Raiford

Eric Quach
Eric Quach i think feeling and build quality wise, htc wins, but specs wise, Samsung. but I still like Sony, Samsung and HTC is too mainstream. :3
Richard Allen Yarrell
Richard Allen Yarrell Let's KEEP IT REAL FOLKS. Back in the day to be exact March 2010 when the HTC EVO 4G was announced NOTHING WAS BETTER. That device ushered in the 4g technology based on where we are today. Then the EVO 3d arrived and that device was nice but not ground breaking like the EVO 4G. Samsung DOMINATED 2011 with the GALAXY S2, GALAXY S2 EPIC TOUCH 4G, GALAXY S2 SKYROCKET, GALAXY S2 SKYROCKET HD, GALAXY NEXUS, and GALAXY NOTE. Nothing tops Samsung today not even the HTC ONE X especially with the GALAXY S3 one the way that will have the quadcore exynos processor 5250 with 1.7 ghz and 2gb of ram and LTE. Samsung is the only manufacturer who has there own in house processors. Nothing will beat samsung in 2012 either I wish HTC well.
Sean Brian
Sean Brian htc one x is better than s3 in everything
Reinaldo Alvarez Maldonado
Reinaldo Alvarez Maldonado I think HTC had a great chance to improve but for the beats license and the new design. Looks.like they lacked the audacity they once possesed, phones with sealed battery, the pretty but useles sense layer. I thought they will be more bold!
Zach Brito
Zach Brito Yes.
Tony Abiama
Tony Abiama HTCs ONE line could really keep me on the Sense UI train. Currently have an EVO 3D and it does me well MOST OF THE TIME that is. I'm hoping for a better battery and less buggyness overall. And i like the job they've done with their ICS update for current HTC devices.
Mc Jason Luardo Laurete
Mc Jason Luardo Laurete HTC is far better that Samsung..
Nikolas Manuelides
Nikolas Manuelides Yes, I think they have a reaaaally good chance of doing so.
Victor Cai
Victor Cai No it's just an average quad core phone. Nothing special
Jozef Sakac
Jozef Sakac Yes against Galaxy Sll not against Galaxy Slll
Mike Cantwell
Mike Cantwell If they stick to just widgets and notification bar instead of sense it would make there devices alot nicer
William Smith
William Smith No!!!!!! No sd card and no removable battery!
Kong Yang
Kong Yang HTC is the best cellphone manufacture.
Gilbert Galvan
Gilbert Galvan No because it has no micro ad slot, and non removable battery.
Oscar Dominguez
Oscar Dominguez No Chance.

Bryan Wilt
Bryan Wilt Not with the gs3 coming out, till then its a great phone
Muneer KhanVict
Muneer KhanVict Probably til the Galaxy S III line of phones come out, then Samsung is once again king.
Josh Veerkamp
Josh Veerkamp For a short while.
Paul Alexandru
Paul Alexandru It may be EQUAL to the Galaxy S3 i guess! This phone looks blazing fast! And HTC sense is a lot better than Touchwiz....so HTC has an advantage
Vincent Jean
Vincent Jean really hope so.. last htc phone i had was evo 3d. which was good IMO. but i hate samsung radio's on there phone... very weak
William Martin
William Martin Lol at the people saying wait for the gs3. When it's about to be released, there'll be another phone waiting to dethrone it too. That's just how it goes.
Eduardo Ordaz
Eduardo Ordaz This is a great phone. plus they said it beat the nexus in benchmarks and its zippy. and they said the battery life is great on the device. and performs really well. weighs less and doesnt feel cheap. read this article before u talk bad about this phone.
Joernie Berrios
Joernie Berrios Wait till the Galaxy S III comes out...we will see who wins the DogFight...lol
CeeGii Borels
CeeGii Borels no memcard slot and battery door, i think its the iPhone theyre trying to dethrone
Mimoun Tu Rigoleras
Mimoun Tu Rigoleras people wait for galaxy S3 maybe the best smartphone ever
Weylin Skjöld
Weylin Skjöld I like them both htc and samsung
Ben Broyles
Ben Broyles Nope. HTC doesn't have what it takes
Zak Raptis
Zak Raptis If the battery is much better than all other HTC phones then hell yes in my opinion. I love HTC more than Samsung honestly because they come out with great hardware and Sense is the coolest skin ever
Hans Jaramillo
Hans Jaramillo Hm, a 2012 phone dethroning a 2011 lineup...I'm sure the GSII and Galaxy Note can hold their own against it. The true test would be against the GSIII if it's announced this year.
Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey Not a chance in hell... and this is coming from a recent HTC to Samsung convert. HTC really is a prime example of a once great company, who got lazy and rested on their laurels. All of HTC's products from the last 1.5 years have just been warmed over, retooled versions of each other. No innovation or creativity, whatsoever. As it stands, now, HTC has nothing that can come close to topping my Samsung Galaxy Note. The HTC One X had the potential to perhaps be on-par with the Galaxy S II/III, but in typical HTC fashion they had to be egregiously stupid and turn the phone into an epic fail. Unishell body with lack of removable battery is the first fail. HTC has built themselves an infamous reputations for building phones with crap battery life. So having the CHOICE to swap out your battery is a must with them. The fact that there is no microSD slot/support, is another epic fail. And the screen being used (another warmed over screen from the original HTC EVO 4G) is another fail, and doesn't hold a candle to ANY Samsung Super AMOLED screen. At the rate HTC is going, they'll be joining Blackberry on the "Used to be relevant" cruise.
Kristopher Davis
Kristopher Davis Samsung is laggy plastic junk...HTC is the real Developers Choice!!!
Corey A. Mayo
Corey A. Mayo if the screen looks like it does in the pics i've seen, then YES
Brian Edwards
Brian Edwards Depends on the SGS III.
Michael Santangelo
Michael Santangelo Hope so.
Frank Mendoza
Frank Mendoza Its dual core phone with non removable battery. Looks nice and so does sense 4 but gs3 will have a quad core processor with lte
Calvin JW
Calvin JW Stfu, Samsung shits on HTC and the shitty Sense UI.
Karl D. Green
Karl D. Green Never.
Anthony Evans Jr
Anthony Evans Jr no the gs3 will murder it
Nain El Fuego Romero
Nain El Fuego Romero Shut the hell up you idiots clearly don't know anything about what HTC said. Worrying less about the number of phones and more about the quality. So you stupid asses talking about "a new phone every month?" Don't know shit!!
Trevor Trey Basikolo
Trevor Trey Basikolo i think it might end up like what happened with the sensation and galaxy s2
Gilberto Lopez
Gilberto Lopez Don't think so
William Martin
William Martin how many devices have htc released this year?
Nain El Fuego Romero
Nain El Fuego Romero Spec and hardware wise. Yes. But people love the galaxy line. Touch wiz is just horrid though
Fred Cargill
Fred Cargill Almost a new phone every month. Getting kind of old HTC
C Paul Courtney
C Paul Courtney Possibly. We won't know until they come out on all carriers.
