1. HTC 8X
More portly than the Android-powered One X, but weighing in at the same 130g, the 8X brandishes a 4.3-inch LCD 2 HD display with a 1280 x 720 resolution with optical lamination to battle glare and avoid reflection issues. The 8-Megapixel camera sports many of the snapping features from previous One Series handsets including the dedicated Image Chip and the ability to shoot 1080p full HD video with the 2.1-Megpixel front-facing camera now capable of full HD shooting as well. Powered by a Snapdragon dualcore processor with 1GB of RAM an 1,800 battery should hopefully get you through the day.
