HTC One X vs Nokia Lumia 900 video review

Pocketnow have published this excellent review of AT&T’s latest LTE smartphones, matching up the Nokia Lumia 900 with the HTC One X.

The video shows that HTC did not do a bad job with the HTC One X, fitting in a 4.7 inch screen into the same physical dimensions as the 4.3 inch screen of the Lumia 900, while fitting the same size battery into an only 8.9 mm thin device.

On the other hand, the video once again demonstrates to me that I have been completely spoilt by the cool, classic lines of Metro, with Android 4.0 looking like a complete mess, as usual, which does make me wonder how regular users can stand the distraction.  Of note is that the Google Play market is the best-looking feature of the OS, and is clearly cribbed from Metro.

The video also shows that all  of the power of the Dual Core 1.5 Ghz S4 processors are wasted on Android 4, with zooming still as laggy as it has always been (check it out briefly at 4:30 min mark).

As has become usual, the Nokia Lumia 900’s camera disappoints compared to HTC’s offering, and it is interesting that one of the reasons Nokia’s handsets were so enthusiastically expected was the expectation of excellent cameras, rather than the mediocre reality.

What do our readers think of the two handsets? Let us know below.
