  1. Hi Paul, Can you please advise on the following? 1) The glass @ the back protecting the camera is not scratch proof nor Corning Goriila Glass. 2) The standalone GPS (or Maps) does not have any voice commands, ie, they are not really like a normal GPS system which will tell u to turn right or left in how many metres, etc. It is just similar to an offline street directory. 3) When doing a panaroma shoot, it is limited to only 5 frames, and we have to "align the line or arrow within the box" before we can shoot the panaroma shot. Does it mean that we cannot shoot @ 45 degress upwards/downwards (for eg), and anything more than 5 frames we will have to 'stitch' ourselves? Cos sometimes if we are are a top of a mountain and we see a scenic view, we will definitely use more than 5 frames to do a panaromic shot. 4) The phone is shock resistance and can withstand dropping on from heights. The salesperson even dropped the phone a few times to try to prove to me this point. 5) It is a quad-core, and it comes with a 5th core for battery saving. This sounds stupid as I think I read somewhere that it uses 3 cores for normal functions & the 4th core for battery saving. Just need some clarification. Thanks.
  2. Hi Paul, I went down to one of the HTC shops to play with ONE X and I noted these belowmentioned points which I clarified with the salesperson. 1) The glass @ the back protecting the camera is not scratch proof nor Corning Goriila Glass. 2) The standalone GPS (or Maps) does not have any voice commands, ie, they are not really like a normal GPS system which will tell u to turn right or left in how many metres, etc. It is just similar to an offline street directory. 3) When doing a panaroma shoot, it is limited to only 5 frames, and we have to "align the line or arrow within the box" before we can shoot the panaroma shot.

  3. Between HTC One X & Sony Xperia S, which is a better in terms of performance, and also the cam (quality of photos taken - more natural & sharp)?
  4. Hi Paul, thanks for the prompt reply. Can you please elaborate on the bugs issue that you have encounter, esp on the typos?For the issue with the initial orientation sensing on the Camera application, do you mean to say upon activating the application in the menu or? Thanks.
  5. For the GPS, do I have to subscribe to the service or data plan in order to use? Or is it similar to Garmin or any other GPS device which does not require any data plan or subscription?

  7. Hi Paul, thanks for the review, however, can I also check on the below-mentioned? Cos I'm undecided whether to get this phone or Xperia S. 1) For the panaroma mode of the cam, is it sweep panaroma or assisted panaroma? Can you assist with some screenshots? 2) For the bugs, is there any workaround fix yet and are they really very annoying? Thanks.
