    Hey phonegeek, I'm gonna be buying the unlocked version, which takes a microsim, and gotta ask about the sim card. Is it the regular size sim or is it a microsim?

    wow i didnt even notice that they changed the speaker grill until jerry pointed it out in the news post on the site, but changing something so inane is such an epic fcuking fail (just on principle) by att that i dont know what else to say, but it is clear to me at this point that the only way to go is international unlocked and use my upgrade on an iphone that i sell

    Htc would have dictated that change, not AT&T.

    This phone also has wrong logo in addition to the odd grill. Probably an earlier version than the final version they showed at MWC. I am not so sure about this being legit. Could be, could be not.

    Since when? Is it not the exact opposite, att dicated the change for some asinine reason? What reason would htc have for making 2 different shells?

    What reason would att have to care about it? Att only cares about things that impact the customer experience, and the design of the earpiece isn't one of them . We know that for a fact. HTC would be the one to care about the finer points of the design.

    Hi! I'm looking forward to buy the One X on launch but as a prospective customer(this would be my first HTC phone), I can't help but think about the X's Polycarbonate uni-body-For hardware troubleshooting, is there a way for the service personnel @ HTC to neatly pry it open for replacing affected/defective parts like the battery, MB or screen @ the local service center? If not, will HTC be replacing it with new or refurbished handsets? Also, what according to HTC is a refurbished handset? Is it same as Apple(defective parts replaced along with a new casing and a unique Serial No. to track refurbs)? Your views are much appreciated! Thanks a ton!!

    I'm sure they have a way to disassemble. Not sure we'll know the answers to your other questions until people start needing to get repairs/replacements.

    My test unit has microsim and would expect it to be microsim.

    I would imagine that there is a way for them get into it but I can't imaging it being easy.

    As for the minor differences in the shell design that others have noted. Out units came out within days of the the announcement, these could have been a more recent shell design or an early shell design. Often times we'll get a hardware swap about halfway through testing. If we do then we'll see if it the design is the same.

    Geez people, it's a test unit, don't blowout yer diapers over logos and shell variances. Phonegeek's probably got an early production unit for field testing, NOT a sales sample.

    +1!!!

    Many times an auto manufacturer will use false body panels or other methods to camouflage a prototype for testing in the real world. After all cosmetics really have no bearing on its performance. What the outside looks like (or feels like) to me is important, but not nearly as important as the guts. I'd rather have an ugly car (or phone) that kicks a$$ then a pretty/sexy/cool looking one that can't perform when needed.

    That's just me. I know there are many people out there who just worry about appearances and don't care much about performance.

    Two quick questions, 1 easy, 1 hard:

    1) When using the device since it doesn't have a physical "settings" button how does the phone handle it when an app still uses the default placement of the settings button?

    2) According to HTC's website the AT&T model of the HTC One X lists AWS (1700mhz) 3g/HSPA+ compatibility, can you confirm this is on your spec sheet? Super curious about T-Mobile compatibility.

    Thanks!

    ICS will automatically add a menu button for that. Its smart enough to 'know'.

    Well.. but can it? See something's do have menu buttons by default in the interfaces, specifically the ICS GApps.. but what will happen with the One X's Hardware buttons? That's why he's asking, I'm assuming.

    You're talking to someone that has a Galaxy Nexus. Whenever an app needs a menu button, ICS adds one.

    So for number 1 the latest SW we received late last week showed the settings button almost by default on apps even if there is no settings menu in the app. This is much better than when we first got the device and the button would get in the way of the app and you could hide it but with no way to really bring it back. It's much better now but I am sure will get some further tweaks in the coming weeks.

    As for number 2 I can't confirm that just yet but I will see if I can find something in the settings, info, etc that will tell me and I'll see if one of my lab contacts can confirm...

    Galaxy Nexus has virtual buttons instead of hardware, he asked because the button would normally appear next to the virtual ones already present, so with hardware buttons there'd be theoretically no place for it to appear as those aren't on the screen; doesn't matter now, PhoneGeek resolved the question, the menu button always appears and is dismissable.

    Sorry if there was confusion. In the first version of the OS we had it was dismissable, the latest we received late last week it is there with most apps and is not dismissable.

    This is by no means final as it has changed over the last couple weeks quite a bit so its a work in progress as they try to find a one size fits most approach IMO....

    Phonegeek - Will AT&T have an event to annouce the One X like Sprint is doing in April 4? Do you think AT&T will release the phone before Sprint does? The rumor is that Sprint will release the phone on June 10, and you think that AT&T will release the phone mid-May? Last question, will AT&T annouce the release date 2-3 weeks before the actual release date like how they did with the Samsung Galaxy Note?? Thanks Phonegeek for all your help!!!

    Actually, ICS was built from the beginning with space for a menu button on screen to replace it, just as I said in my posts. (Which you ignored) There's been several dozen stories written about that across the web, not to mention quite a few posts on here (including mine) with that information.

    ICS will automatically add that menu button, and it is not user dismissable. (Or in other words, its persistent) Go read up on the new android style guide for more information.

    My galaxy nexus oc'd to 1350 scored 6911, so two thousand points higher than this, so this is not very impressive. My galaxy tab Tegra 2 also scored in the 6000 range....

    Which One X should I get? The Tegra 3 or the Snapdragon? The Tegra 3 runs on 4G, is that right?

    Tegra 3 runs on HSPA+, AT&T's fake 4G network. The Snapdragon runs on LTE, AT&T's real 4G network. So it depends on what you have in your area.

    Do you have any evidence of the Tegra 3 verisons running on AT&T 850 / 1900 HSPA+, or are you talking out of your ***?
