Hands On: HTC VX and One X+ for AT&T
THe HTC X+ is pretty much what the name implies. It is a better version of the One X. HTC said in its press release that the external hardware was unchanged between the One X and X+, but that's not quite true.
The X+ looks identical to the One X, but the feel in the hand is decidedly different. Where the One X has a semi-matte shell, the X+ has a full-on soft-touch paint job. It has a grippy feel that definitely sticks in the hand more than the One X does. The footprint is the same, though, and it's a fairly good-sized phone in terms of length and width. It remains to be thin, thankfully.

There are other, very minor changes to the design, but it would take an HTC engineer to really spot them.
The screen, which measures 4.7-inches and includes 1280 x 720 pixels, looked quite good. It's the same LCD used by the One X, and it's one of my favorite displays to come to market this year.
The version of the X+ that will be sold by AT&T has a quad-core Nvidia Tegra processor and LTE on board. (The One X has a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor). The X+ with the Nvidia quad-core felt incredibly fast as I played with the the user interface. Speaking of which, the UI is exactly the same as it is on the One X. Android 4.0 with Sense 4.0. According to HTC, though, the device will ship with Jelly Bean and Sense 4.0+.
