Summary

When HTC launched the HTC One X at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, U.S. consumers were very disappointed to hear that the version of the device heading to AT&T in the U.S. would have to give up its quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor in order to gain LTE support.

It turns out, though, that NVIDIA's LTE woes worked out in the U.S. market's favor - and in a big way. The dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor that is in the AT&T One X is flat out better. It's faster in most all benchmarks, runs cooler, and offers better battery life.

Wipe away those tears, geek-boy. This One X is even better than the European version I reviewed a short while ago, which pretty much makes it the best high-end smartphone available on the market today. Or May 6, when AT&T makes it available for purchase for $199.99.

Check out the video below comparing the AT&T HTC One X (also known as the One XL in global markets) with the original HTC One X for Europe for more proof.

[This review is based very heavily upon the original HTC One X review since there are so few differences between that version and AT&T's version of the One X - save for the CPU, internal storage capacity, and some minor performance differences.]
