Hi Paul, great review. I own a One X now and coming from an Iphone4 I learned a lot of new Android ICS features from your review.
I have 1 questions: in your review in the mail appp you write "Thankfully, the stock ICS app can be easily installed without any ROM hacking to allow the best of both worlds.

Were can I find/download the stock ICS mail app?
From the Play Store maybe?
If so, what is its name?

Thanks!

FredK.

I have heard that many one x phones are "dead on arrival". One of three has been sent back from the shop I asked (The phone house). Regarding Samsung Galaxy s2 they said that not a single guaranty report has been done. Is One X a "bad" phone?? The DOA's has been hardware issues, not software.

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.

Paul

At the recent event in Chicago, what did HTC say was their reason(s) for using hardware buttons instead of on-screen buttons. I find the button configuration a strange choice, particularly as it means you often lose any gains in screen size because of the need to display the legacy button on-screen.

Thanks

Paul O'Brien, I'm still waiting for you to elaborate on the 'clever tweaking' you mentioned for that has great potential for making the battery even better!! :)
