HTC One XL

 

Can HTC's One XL rival Samsung's Galaxy SIII LTE for the 4G crown?

Great screen ; Fast 4G download speeds ; Good camera ; Fast performance

No removable battery ; No removable storage ; Doesn’t come with Jelly Bean

The quality of shots is on the whole very good, but they lack that little extra edge to put them up there with the very best. The camera has a slight tendency to wash out brighter parts of pictures and sometimes detail isn’t quite as sharp as it should...

HTC One XL review

 

A new chipset for an already excellent handset makes it a great 4G alternative to the mighty Samsung S3 LTE

One let-down is that this handset is still using Android 4.0.4, rather than the slicker Android 4.1 found on the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE. This means the menus aren't quite as smooth and quick as we're now used to.

HTC One XL review

 

We examine whether HTC's first 4G phone is worth the premium price

Screen is excellent, great camera, nice design

EE's 4G speeds weren't as fast as we'd have hoped, poor battery life

We loved the HTC One X and were happy to see that the HTC One XL features the same gorgeous screen, great design and camera.

HTC One XL Review

 

The HTC One XL offers support for 4G, something its predecessor the One X didn't. It still has the same great eight-megapixel snapper and Beats Audio technology, but its dual-core chip and 16GB of onboard storage are a step down from the One X.

Super speedy

Dual-core chip; can’t expand 16GB onboard storage; Battery dies after 4 and a half hours of video streaming.

Like its predecessor, the HTC One XL proves to be a neat handset for media fans, despite that shorter battery life when streaming movies. With full 4G LTE support on offer, you’ll be streaming HD films without any buffering or stuttering, which is good...

HTC One XL review: HTC's One X gets the superfast 4G treatment. Is the extra speed worth it?

Super fast 4G speeds ; Elegant design and superb screen ; Some great camera features

Poor battery life ; Inconsistent Sense UI

The addition of LTE 4G connectivity adds a new dimension to the HTC One XL. Fast mobile data speeds combined with an outstanding design, an excellent screen and good overall performance make the One XL a great smartphone. Poor battery life,...

HTC One XL 4G smartphone review

 

The HTC One XL is almost identical to the HTC One X – but there is one major difference – the XL is compatible with Telstra's super fast 4G network.

The HTC One XL is the most stylish 4G handset on the market. It is a fair way ahead of HTC’s first 4G effort – the Velocity - in terms of size and design.

HTC One XL - L for LTE

 

Unlike its quad-core sibling, the HTC One XL runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Manufactured via a 28nm process technology, will this S4 processor outgun the Tegra 3 processor in the One X? And how does it fare against...

Nice design and solid build quality ; Fast LTE speeds ; Good overall performance ; Does not get as warm as the HTC One X

Pricey ; Battery life shorter than expected

Many consumers will find themselves in a dilemma - should they get the HTC One XL, One X, ASUS PadFone, or the Samsung Galaxy S III? Let's break it down one by one.
