    HTC One XL is a sleek 5.29 x 2.75 x 0.35 inch lightweight handheld with stellar camera and audio performance. The 4.7-inch LCD screen comes in a scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass, perfect for heavy smartphone users.

     

    The display is a Super IPS LCD2 touchscreen with 16M colors and approximately 312 ppi pixel densities. Below the screen are the standard keys for Back, Home, and Recent Applications. The top side of the smartphone has the power button while the volume buttons are on the right side. One of the best features of the device is its camera performance which is a real thumbs-up. HTC One XL has an 8 megapixel primary and a 1.3 megapixel secondary camera. Though the secondary camera remains plain in its feature, the primary camera lets you capture photos even while shooting a video.

     

    Because of the high-resolution camera, video quality is also high-definition because of its excellent audio recording feature. The handheld has two microphones - one at the top, just beside the 3.5mm audio jack; and another at the bottom edge. Both have a noise-cancelling feature for crisper sound quality during phone calls.

     

    The reason for the device's sharp sound is HTC's partnership with Beats Audio. HTC One XL has two speakers - one up front, serving also as the earpiece; and another at the back, playing the tunes clearer than ever. A downside, however, is its employment of a micro SIM card whose slot needs to be opened with a small metallic key similar to that of an iPhone. Some might also not please with its limited 32GB internal memory storage. Those who tend to fret over storage issues are comforted because of HTC's offer with Dropbox - an online storage system which lets one access their files from any device anytime, anywhere. Owners who sign up for a Dropbox account from their phones get a 25GB free storage valid for two years.

     

    The storage cloud is really a plus feature and makes up for the phone's lack of external memory. Battery life is average just like most smartphones. It will last for 24 hours for a moderate user. Playing games and watching movies will use up a lot of battery life, though - making multi-tasking almost an impossibility. The device comes in white or gray but both are relatively easy to get fingerprints on so a mobile phone case might be necessary.
