HTC One VX quick review: The best features from the One series at a bargain price


Flagship phones will always be popular, but a recent trend of high quality mid-range phones started late last year. The DROID RAZR M is a perfect example because it gives you a lot for the money. Now HTC is attempting to get in on the bandwagon with the One VX. It’s priced at $49 on AT&T, and although the specs are not what you would find on a high-end phone, they are far from embarrassing. Is it just another cheap device or is it worthy of your money? Hit the break to read the rest and find out.

HTC One VX to be available on AT&T by December 7th

The HTC One VX was originally poised to arrive on AT&T alongside the HTC One X+ on November 16th. The problem is that only one of the devices made that scheduled launch date. And while the HTC One X+ is currently available both in carrier stores and online, the HTC One VX is nowhere to be found.

According to an AT&T spokesperson however, that’s set to change in just a few short weeks, confirming that the carrier  “expects to be fully stocked in all channels by Dec. 7.” So, if you’re currently on the holdout for HTC’s budget handset, you shouldn’t have too much longer to wait.

HTC One X+ and HTC One VX available from AT&T November 16th

AT&T has finally announced the impending availability of two long-awaited HTC handsets. Beginning November 16th, customers can pick up both the HTC One VX and the HTC One X+ with a new two-year contract for $50 and $200, respectively. AT&T is also taking pre-orders for the One X+ beginning tomorrow, November 13th in case you’re too anxious to wait an additional three days.

The HTC One X+ is a mild refresh to the company’s One X that was released earlier this year, opting this time for NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.7GHz. Users will get the same marvelous 4.7-inch HD display along with a massive 64GB of internal storage, 2,100mAh battery and 8-megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p video. Furthermore, the device is running HTC’s new Sense 4+ atop Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

If the One X+ is a bit too fancy for your palette, the Taiwanese  company’s budget-oriented One VX may be a suitable option. The device is essentially a toned down One S with a slightly larger screen, complete with a 5-megapixel ImageSense camera, NFC and a 4.5-inch qHD display. Although not shipping with Android 4.1, HTC and AT&T have promised an update in due course.

So, what are your plans for November 16th? Will you be picking up either of these devices, or will you be opting for Samsung’s Galaxy Camera?
