This Android smartphone features a high-quality camera, impressive 4G LTE and large 4.5-inch display. The HTC One VX also has Sense software and Beats Audio, and the device runs on the Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Let’s find out if this device is perfect for you or not.

Interface and Software
The HTC One VX runs on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Because of this older software, you won’t be able to enjoy features like offline voice typing and Google Now. The Sense 4 software of HTC allows you to jump to any of the 4 application through just a swipe. The phone comes with three standard home screens, but you can add more from the widgets. The 3D carousel presentation of latest apps is the new feature.
The virtual keyboard allows you to type with good pace and minimal errors. The ability to long press on symbols and numbers is also great. In addition, the keyboard also supports Trace input.
The HTC One VX is powered by a dual-core processor, 8GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM. The storage can be expanded up to 32GB through microSD. The 1.2-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU offers a good performance for the price. Even the graphics-intensive game like Dead Trigger runs without any problem in this device.
Web and 4G
With the 4G LTE network from AT&T, the One VX delivers great data speeds. The Browser Bar from AT&T offers the great browsing experience.
Battery Life and Call Quality
The 1800mAh battery lasts for about 7 hours. The One VX is an average performer when it comes to calls.
Camera and Camcorder
The rear camera of 5-MP is able to capture up to 4 frames per second. The camcorder of 1080p is just fine. This device allows you to tweak everything from White Balance and ISO, with options ranging from Portrait and HDR to Close up and Panorama.
