The One X smartphone of HTC is available in two models. The first one is the international model with a quad core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. The second is the US model available from AT&T that uses the Snapdragon S4 processor of Qualcomm instead of the Tegra 3 of NVIDIA.
Among the two, many wonder which one is better? The simple answer to this is that those who want to simply show off and want others to know that the spec of their phone is better compared to what everyone else owns should opt for the quad core model. On the other hand, users who want faster downloads, improved battery life and a cooler-running smartphone should choose the version of AT&T.
What does this mean though for Europeans and Asians? Obviously the One X offered by AT&T is better compared to the international version. However, the model is not offered outside of the United States.
Yet, many foreign users may surely jump at the good news that the One XL of HTC will be reaching Europe in the coming month. The One XL is basically the HTC One X without the bloatware and branding of the AT&T One X version.
Germany's Vodafone will be the first operator that will be offering the One XL. This makes since because they are known in Europe to have one of the highly dependable 4G networks. However, consumers from other nations will also have the chance to purchase the One XL directly from HTC for 660 Euros.
Users who happen to live in a country that does not have the 4G LTE network and want to know the reason why they should purchase the 4G LTE smartphone should think about the reasons mentioned above. Again, the Snapdragon S4 processor operates cooler and faster compared to the Tegra 3 in several standards but it is most importantly power efficient.
