Review: HTC One X for AT&T
As per usual, most of the AT&T-branded services are on board, such as Navigator, TV, MyAccount, etc. Most of these cannot be deleted, but they can be "deactivated." Deactivated apps no longer appear in the main app menu, but still reside in the phone's storage. I didn't find the overall number of apps preinstalled to be overly burdensome, and there's still plenty of memory left for the user to install his/her own apps.Bluetooth
The One X's Bluetooth radio works perfectly. It paired with every device I could find. Phone calls, in particular, sounded excellent when sent through my car's speaker. Music sounded very good when sent to stereo Bluetooth headphones. I had no issues pushing files to/from the One X.Clock
HTC went overboard with the clock. First, there are 18 (EIGHTEEN!!!) clock widgets on the One X. Any of them can be chosen as the home screen clock. Oh, but wait, there's also three weather widgets, each of which also includes a clock! Yeah, so, One X owners can pick from 21 different time-telling mechanisms for their home screen if they wish to do so. However, none of these applies to the lock screen. The clock on the lock screen is a smallish, digital read-out that is positioned at the top of the screen. It is readable at an arm's length, but can be hard to see in bright sunlight if you've chosen the wrong scene/skin/wallpaper.

The GPS worked flawlessly. The One X's GPS radio was able to lock on my position in less than 10 seconds, and was accurate to within about 10 feet. That's about as much as you can ask from a cell phone. Paired with Google Maps, which is the only navigation tool on the One X, the location capabilities are excellent. Thanks to the speedy network access, fast application processor, and accurate GPS radio, real-time directions were spot on and as close to "real-time" as I've ever seen from a cell phone. The One X makes an excellent navigation device.
