SIM-Free HTC One X+ 64GB Smartphone & Krussel Screen Protector £319.99 @Expansys

Found 4th Jul 2013
Don't forget Quidco, bringing it down to a possible £308.79!

No micro SD card slot, although 64GB should be enough for almost everyone

Not the latest phone, but maybe quite useful in the near future, as it's got 4G and comes with a screen protector supposedly worth £14.99, so overall not a bad deal IMO.

EDIT: Apologies folks, turns out 4G only works in USA for this phone.

Hot! My colleague has this and I was really impressed by the build quality

good find, thnx a mill. Heat heat heat

Is the 32gb HTC One x worth £150?

I've got one of these, it's brilliant. Well recommended.

64gb in a phone? MAD!

Sell it privately and you could reach £200

My brother will sell it to me for 150, or I can go for the Motorola Razr i thanks for the reply.

hot! I love my HTC One X would recommend them to anyone!

will this work with on UK 4g network? especially the up coming three network migrating to 4g.

Great price and it also includes 4G which sweetens the deal.

Wonderful phone but personally I would pay more for the HTC One as that phone truly is a thing of beauty. This is still a great deal though.

This is the updated model of the original HTC One X. It features a faster clocked processor, larger battery and 64GB storage on board. It's very good for the price. I'd say it's slightly better than the Nexus 4.


Just to let people know this is NOT a 4G LTE phone.
It's good phone for the price but it will not work on 4G in the UK.
It will however work on 3G DC-HSPA+ networks with speeds up to 42Mbps.

Alward can you edit the OP to reflect the info above please^ Cheers.

No worries.

Yeh technically it's a 4G phone, but only in the USA on certain networks. The frequencies used in the UK aren't the same so it won't work over here on 4G. It's fine on 2G and 3G though.

The 4G model of the phone that works here is called the "HTC One XL". It is obviously more expensive though.

What a shame, I was considering buying the One X+

Yeah, I know about the One XL, I posted a deal the other day as it was clearance stock... Would I need to buy a new version of the One XL to get 4G?

I'd stay away I own htc one S, not even one year old and they have said no more updates for the device, even though it's still very capable... Samsung still give s2 updates and look how old that is


Also they have terrible service... Never htc again

Original one x is just as good. Only "advantage" here is the memory. Not compatible with the frequencies the UK networks use to take advantage of the 4G, Batter life is lesser than the the original HOX model, and it lacks the compatability the original HOX has when it comes to Roms & Tweaks.

The HTC One XL would work fine in the UK on 4G. However there is a slight catch. The One XL only supports 2 of the 3 main frequencies used in the UK for 4G. Basically it doesn't support 800Mhz which is what O2 use.

Think of 4G in the UK like a motorway.

O2 use lane 3, Three use Lane 2 and 3, and Vodafone use Lane 1 and 3 and EE use all 3 lanes.
Basically the One XL doesn't support lane 3 so won't work on O2 at all. But will work on the other networks, but be gimped ever so slightly because it can't access Lane 3. (basically won't get 4G signal in some areas. This is the same problem with the iPhone 5 where it won't work on Vodafone and O2's 4G but will work on Three and EE. The reason is because these phones were released before 4G came out in the UK and before the 4G auction.

I apologise for the terrible analogy btw.

I'd recommend going for the HTC One if you wanted a fully compatible 4G phone.

No, it was very helpful actually! Thank you Ahmad... I didn't understand 4G before you gave that example lol

From smartfonestore? Then yep.

I bought the HTC One S from there, grade c, as a backup "going out at night" phone instead of my Note II. Grade C was actually decent enough, a few scratches here are there but nothing too bad and no dents or cracks.

Funilly enough, I am getting absolutely immense battery life on the 1.5 year old sealed battery. I was at about 15% after 48 hours and 3 hours screen on time with average signal (around -91db)

I actually have a One X in front of me that a friend wants me to sell on ebay for him. It looks pretty sweet too even though the One S is slightly thinner. The screen is also very nice and I'm sure you can get similar battery life that what I got on the One S if you know what you're doing. I reckon you should go for it for 150, or even get the One S for cheaper if you're worried about the screen size. They're both wonderful phones and I think I'll always prefer Sense to TouchWiz.

Yeah definatly. Make sure it was made after September 2012 tho, check this from the boot screen when pressing power + up, original HOX model came with wi-fi + GPS issues and HTC rolled out models after summer with the issue fixed.

I have the HOX and its a great phone, if you want to make it even better buy a original One X+ battery for around £20 which has around 400MaH more and get it fitted in your HOX, and take a visit here and download ARHD, with the lyapota tweaks.

Excellent phone, i have it running ARHD + Lyapota with the HTC Sense 5 resources.

No worries. If you are in the market for a 4G phone make sure it says LTE 800/1800/2600 under 4G network. Those are the 3 frequencies used in the UK for 4G.

ARHD, not bad but I prefer ViperX+ (de-Sensed) with Nova Launcher, or (what I have) Next Launcher 3D.

Both roms are almost identicle under the hood, I don't see the point having a desensed HTC personally, The only reason i own a HOX is for the Sense overlay, otherwise id have a samsung with stock android on it. I guess we all have our own little setup haha

thanks !

i was a previous owner of the samsung galaxy S2 and the S3. however, after my S3 did a sudden death on me i was stuck without a handset for a while so my uncle had lent me his htc one X+ 32gb version. using it, i loved it. the build quality was superior to any samsung phone. the screen seemed as if it was like a floating paper hovering the screen. Had a lovely experience with that I bought the new HTC ONE over the galaxy S4 and I am so glad I made that choice. HTC are second to none on built quality. extremely recommned this handset on this price. by the way, please dont use hand cut micro sim cards on this as the simcard reader is extremely acccurate.

Best smartphone in the world apparently.

Awsome phone, loads of storage and we'll quick enough. Battery life good, build quality first rate.
I used a sim cutter with no problems..

HTC One S is 15 months old, so hardly surprising that there are no more updates for a mid-range phone of this vintage.

I picked up a new HTC ONE for £350 so for an extra £30 you get get the latest and IMO greatest handset at the moment

I know it's only 32GB but that's enough for me

Do you really need 2GB of RAM on a phone. I mean Sense is nowhere near as heavy as it was and unless you're a really big multitasker then i see on reason why 2GB ram would be beneficial. But if you do want say a futureproof phone and have the money to spend then go for a 4G/2GB ram phone shuwaz.

(Or wait for the Note 3 3GB ram) :P

Depends what you're after,

One X+ = better camera and double the storage space, also Venom Rom.
Nexus 4 = much faster SoC (CPU/GPU), double the ram.

I'd probably choose the X+ for the extra storage and Venom, but it's down to preference really.

Yes I meant from a future-proof point of view. But also, meaning I would have bought one when the first came out.

I do find that 1GB RAM isn't sufficient for me. I played with the HTC for about a week before I passed it on to my wife (as she was still decommissioning her old mobile). Every so often I did experience slow down and sluggishness. Whereas no such problem with my GN4.
