Given its pre­mium metal body, curved edges and larger, 5.5-inch screen, you could be for­given for think­ing this was HTC’s flag­ship phone or even an iPhone de­scen­dant. The One X9 is at the higher end of the mid-range mar­ket, with op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion for its 13-megapixel rear cam­era and, in the HTC tra­di­tion, front-facing speak­ers for bet­ter sound. Users also get a 4G con­nec­tion, 3000mAh bat­tery, and power from an octa-core chip and 3GB RAM. Its cam­era’s aut­o­fo­cus re­quires man­ual as­sis­tance, how­ever, it lacks a fin­ger­print scan­ner, and its screen of­fers rea­son­able res­o­lu­tion but dark­ens sig­nif­i­cantly on an an­gle.
